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.

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.

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 (455) - 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.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 1, 2011
12oz bottle from State Line. Pale straw gold pour, with a crisp and fairly frothy carbonation. Youthful and quite fresh is the appearance. Nose is only faintly sweet, and conveys for the most part the dry hops and yeast that I crave. Body is slightly too prickly in places, but not overwhelmingly so. I enjoyed the interplay of yeasts and malts in the initial wave of the flavors, but the brew tended to get rather one-dimensionally dry and spicy from there. That’s certainly a single dimension I vastly prefer to others - grassy over sweet every time for a saison - but it’s hard to conclude that this is anything other than average.

cheap (3942) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2011
Had the early 2007 version quite a while ago. Looks like a good hefe in the glass. Somewhat metallic farm instrument aroma. Taste is bright, lots of sharper bitter stuff going on there. Good carbonation. Goes creamy during the session. Lots of bitter unripe green odd citrus rind thing doing it to ya. Good overall experience.

(Draught) Pours a cloudy orange body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of orange peel, coriander, grains of paradise, and ginger. Flavor of grain, yeast, orange, and herbs with a bitter finish.
