COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saisons were originally brewed to keep farmhands happy and hydrated during the warm summer months. True to the style, Yardsí Saison is a semi-unfiltered Belgian style ale brewed with distinctive Belgian yeast. Itís 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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4843) - 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.

jdskinns (194) - South Roxana, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2009
About an inch or more fizzy white head when poured from a bottle. Transparent, yellow-orange color. Bitter taste at first followed by a sour taste. Overall a good smooth beer. Very drinkable.

egajdzis (5277) - 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. Iíd prefer this a little drier, but better than the last version.

EithCubes (4752) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 21, 2009
Ooh, was there a recipe change here? This is a 2009 bottle. Big dusty saison yeast, light alcohol and big orange peel nose, some candi sugar and grassy, citric Pils and regular pale malt. Hazy amber-golden with a creamy, cloudy eggshell head. Very full body with light spice and strong alcohol attack, not the harsh hot kind, but the cold, heavy blanket. Numbing and muddled in its herbiness, canít much tell whatís going on here. Chalky slick feel for this sledgehammer, some faint muscat notes. Pepper is subdued, dry and lightly bitter, no hops, malt a mess.

dmac (3923) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 7, 2009
12 oz bottle from Oak Tree. Poured a rusty orange with more clinging carbonation then I have ever seen. The head was huge and frothy bright white but all the carbonation actually hid the body so Iím knocking it down a point. The aroma was sweet overall with notes of bubble gum, cotton candy, dry toast, yeast and some fruitiness. Medium bodied with a full finish that has only a hint of dryness unlike most saisons. Flavor is much drier then the aroma but still has enough going on with big yeast notes, dry toast, slight rotting orange, finishes slightly spicey and peppery. I actually enjoyed this but the body is to thick for style and the dryness that is normaly found in saisons isnít there. It seems more like a Belgian Triple then a Saison to me which is probably why I like it, good stuff.
