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.

I wanted to like this a lot more than I did. The brewery is local but I am not a big fan. This one smelled nice with spices and sweet malt. Looked nice with a cloudy light amber pour with a nice lasting head. The flavor was OK with a bit of an astringent tang that was not entirely pleasant. Finish was thin. Average offering.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 22, 2010
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Fireworks. It pours a very hazy, almost opaque, brownish gold with a foamy white head. The nose is very Belgian with notes of bubble gum and candy sugar. Slight clove and yeast notes are there as well. The taste is a bit flat and cloying with lots of clove, some florals, spice, and belgian yeast. Overly aggressive carbonation tries to lighten this brew but ends up adding acidity and sharpness that doesn’t seem appropriate. A light body with very prickly carbonation leads to a medium, clove laden finish. Overall this brew lacks the subtleties of a true Saison. Pass on this for a Saison Dupont any day.

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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5245) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2009
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.
