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.

mansquito (3255) - 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.

madvike (2657) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2012
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 (4625) - 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.

SamP01 (537) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a medium white lasting head. Aroma and Taste of citrus, lemons, some grass and hay notes, with some biscuit malt and light bitter hops. A light crisp body with good carbonation. Finish is light crisp, citrus and lemon flavors with some light bitter hops and a lingering nutty aftertaste. Overall a good crisp and refreshing brew.

jcartamdg (1852) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Pours a golden orange color with a thin head. Aroma of Belgian yeast and citrus. Taste follows the nose but us far too sweet for a saison. Not a bad beer but I was not expecting the sweetness. This takes away from the refreshing nature of a saison making this beer a bit of a disappointment.

FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Pours a hazy, pale gold with a soft finger of white head. Pretty good lacing and plentiful beading. The nose is pretty decent... orange peels, clove, banana, I gotta say it reminds me of a Blue Moon. Not off-putting, but not fantastic either. The flavors here are rather muddled. Wheat, clove, more orange peel, sort of a medicinally tart aftertaste. I’d probably pass on this one in the future. Glad I got to try it though!

On draft at Isaacs.. Some sour notes with fruit, brwad and mild spice. It’s ok.

boxofrane (2045) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with two fingers of white head and plenty of lacing. Aroma has plenty of wild yeast and some apricot sweetness. Taste is classic saison with a bubbly mouthfeel. Nothing amazing but a good, cheap example in the style.
