COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saisons were originally brewed to keep farmhands happy and hydrated during the warm summer months. True to the style, Yards’ Saison is a semi-unfiltered Belgian style ale brewed with distinctive Belgian yeast. It’s delicate and fruity with a subtle spiciness. Styrian Goldings in the kettle lend a touch of hop to the palate, balancing out this highly drinkable version of the classic style. Available April through July or until supplies last.

Bottle. Poured amber with a nice sized white head. Smelled slightly citrusy. Tasted toasty, dry, and malty. I’m not the biggest fan of saison, but it wasn’t bad.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2011 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a vibrant caramel-amber color with an enormous creamy yellow-white head. The aroma was strongly peppery and must with notes of lemon zest and light spices. The flavor was tangy and dry with a strong notes of sugar and candied pears and hints of ginger, pepper and underlying mustiness. The finish was long and dry with notes of pear and pepper. The body was thick and full. Well done.

egajdzis (5401) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2009
[Draft @ Northside] Poured a dark gold color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus fruits, pepper, coriander, candi sugar, floral hops, and honey. Taste of citrus fruits, toffee, toasted malts, honey, coriander, pepper, orange peel, and a sweeter finish. I’d prefer this a little drier, but better than the last version.
