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.

Pours a hazy, golden color with a white head. Aroma is of yeast, coriander, candied sugar, and some slight floral hops. Flavor is strong of the yeast, banana, and candied sugar. Not too strong on the finish as well.

PhillyCraft (3437) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear, very active golden color. Medium white bubbly head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of cinnamon, german hops, coriander, fresh lemons. Taste of coriander, orange peel, nutmeg, peach, wood. Good soft mouthfeel. Finishes very clean and tasty. Reminds me more of a bier de garde and witbier combined in the overall flavor. Very underrated beer from Yards.

Draft and brewery fresh. I enjoyed this quite a bit. Yards beers to me always seem to "pop", this is a lively, mouth filling take on a saison. A bit bready, not too spicy but with the character spicing you would expect.

a solid sixpack. pours kind of an ugly color like dehydrated urine (girlfriend’s words, not mine) but with a decently full white head that sticks around nicely. smell’s a bit funky and not in a great way, like a old damp towel. tastes surprisingly bright and lively though, with some citrus notes on top of a nice breadiness. i’d say this beer has a bad start with appearance and aroma but still manages to drink just fine. i’d buy it again.

Tap at Iron Abbey. Light yellow pour with a large white head. Banana, clove, and yeast in this. Light crispness.

mansquito (3555) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Pizzeria Paradiso, Alexandria tap ($6): Pours an orange colour with a white head. Aroma is barely saisonesque; instead, it is mostly like a sweet and fruity Belgian Ale. Taste is much the same. This was good. It was refreshing and very drinkable, but ultimately, it was not particularly complex or novel.

Light and fruity, a bit tart, yeasty, and bread-like. Hints of spice, citrus zest, grass. Smooth and full bodied.

Bottle shared by nuplastikk...thanks Greg! - Pours lightly hazy yellow with a thin bubbly white head. Nose is big and tropically fruity, with syrup of canned mixed fruit, light clove spiciness, and a bit of banana. Taste is similar, with a bit of syrupy sweetness, a light herbal hoppiness, pear, and some pale maltiness. Pretty syrupy slick body with enough carbonation to smooth it all out. Nice stuff!

jgb9348 (4848) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Crystal clear golden coloured body with a light orange glow and a thin, fast-dying tan head. Aroma of yeast, wheat, sugars and tons of coriander seed with a bit of curacao. Light-bodied; Sharp pungent malt at first with some metal, malt, wheat, yeast and a bunch of curacao and lemons. Aftertaste is quite bitter from the malt, metal, yeast and a touch of hops, with some other grassy notes and a little sweetness at the tail end. Overall, a strong beer that doesn’t show off to be such a bad beer - but one with a lot of flavour that doesn’t necessarily translate to great flavours, especially for the style. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 23-May-2012 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Upstate New York on 26-May-2012.
