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.

GT2 (8755) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 25, 2011
355mL. The pour is a clear golden with some decent carbonation generating a medium, pillowy, white head. Nice retention but no lace. Nose is heavy esters with banana and clove similar to something like Duvel or an Abbey Tripel. Taste is metallic, sweet, very grainy and cereal heavy. As it warms you can get some of the numbing clovey spice and heavy spicy yeast. A little heavy and husky on the palate for saison but pretty competent and nice. Much better than I expected.
