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.

Gooseunc (15) - Prince William County, Virginia, USA - MAY 18, 2014
12 oz bottle. Poured w/1 in head of bright white foam...nice laces on my tulip glass. Slight saison haze, more amber than orange in colour. Nice Belgian funk on the nose...got a bit of banana as we'll. Very well-attenuated...fresh, effervescent. Typical spices/fruits on the tongue...some tart /sour as well. Excellent example of style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

obguthr (4430) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Pear and banana nose, lemongrass. Fairly clear golden, thick lacy head. Full body, lacks carbonation, warm. Apricot and lemon. Grain husks on the back of the palate are actually not out of place. Drinks a bit heavy, not super refreshing, but enjoyable.

Tstamba (409) - Maryland, USA - JAN 30, 2014
On draft, in a tulip at Woodberry Kitchen on my birthday! Golden amber with bubbly white head and strong lacing. A sweet fresh baked bread essence with orange marmalade and spice on the nose and palate... Easy to drink... Paired well with the crab pot. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

radio_nowhere (1048) - Maryland, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Bottle into tulip glass, slight hazy golden color with off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, bread, mild spices (mainly clove) and slightly metallic. Taste seems to have more happening; added notes of pepper, citrus (lemon, orange rind), more spices (rosemary, lemongrass) and some grass. Light body, moderate carbonation, effervescent, crisp with slight yeasty finish. Decent sessionable saison.
