COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís a lively jazz rhythm, a vigorous sway, a change of view or even a roll in the proverbial hay. Now it also means the welcome jolt of joy youíll experience upon your first sip of this session saison. Bracing, but benign, this Belgian style ale enlivens any experience with a spicy, aromatic start, citrus snap and fresh finish. Swing into spring with taste!

Cybercat (3503) - Georgia, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Comes out of the tap a nice, bubbly, clear golden with a fine-bubbled white head. Hearty aroma is quite yeasty, with fruity and subtle malty notes. Crisp flavor has yeasty, malty, fruity, and coriander tones - definitely for sipping rather than chugging. Texture has average thickness and fizz, but scarcely subtracts from the enjoyableness of this brew. Swing a session with this one.

Bottle. Slightly hazy, bright yellow pour. Aroma is citrus, coriander, band aid. Light bodied and spritzy carbonation. Mild Brett flavors dominate, citrus, leather, rubber, hay, tart lemon. Has a solid peppery finish with good bitterness. Packs a lot of flavor for 4.5%. Glad i got a sixer.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent gold with fluffy white head. Smells spicy, yeasty, and doughy. Tastes like it smells with a nice, dry finish. Asolid example of the style.

dmac (4209) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2013
12oz single bottle from Spirits Berkley. Poured a really great looking deep clear dark gold body with lots of rising effervescence and an average sized silky bright white head. Aroma is doughy, perfume, white pepper, rotting lemon and a slight touch of copper. Fuller body with lighter carbonation that finishes dry like eating a piece of toast. Flavor isnít as good as the aroma and seems a bit dry. Notes of toast, lemon zest, touch of skunk cabbage, pepper and old flowers. Good stuff.

Bottle pours golden yellow with a white head. Nose of citrus and earth. Medium body begins with earth and sweetness, finishes with oranges. Mouthfeel is crisp.

Bottle from Total Wine Sterling. Pours golden with an inch of white foam that leaves lacing. Nice peppery notes on the nose. Nice, clean on the tongue with some solid hop bite on the finish. Solid for style.

Beaver (1342) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 8, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden yellow with a big meringue white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is fruits and funk with some piney, floral hops and perfumey spices.

The flavor is sweet bready malts with a little funky fruit and some spices (corriander, pepper) and a good sized piney floral bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, Iím not sure Iíd call it a saison. But I like it as a session beer with good bitterness and some funk.
