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.

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 (2053) - 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 (2208) - 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.

sethbreaker (173) - New York, Greater London, USA - APR 21, 2012
From the bottle. Not much given away on the nose,a faint whiff of the yeast. Light mouth feel some characteristics coming from the yeast, a little pepper and spice although I found this beer rather one dimensional.

callmemickey (2971) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: light orange body. thin off-white head. little lacing and moderate head retention. S: Orange, lemon, light spice. Noticeable lack of funk and yeast. T: More of the same. Not particularly remarkable for the style. Pleasant soft citric fruits. M: Smooth. Light body. Lacking a crisp finish. O: Decent, but there are plenty of others out there that fit the style and taste better at the price.

gpekar (470) - Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2011
Poured a slightly hazy golden yellow with wisps of clouds from the sediment swirling through the glass. There was a medium tall foamy off-white head that left some light lacing. There were some carbonation bubbles rising up in the glass. The aroma was grassy with some citrus notes. The beer had a crisp clean initial taste with good carbonation. There was a light tartness with a citrus flavor initially with some malty sweetness towards the middle. The finish became more bitter than tart and on the dry side. It was a refreshing finish.

Pours a yellowish color with a white head. Smells like peppercorns. I like peppercorns. Taste has a bunch of yeast and wheat in it. Little bits of pepper. Different from the other saisons I have drank.
