The Yards Saison is pretty to look at and smells just as nice, but itís lacking something in taste. It doesnít taste badóitís quite enjoyable and itís light in taste, but it also feels a little flat, like it canít quite distinguish itself from other saisons. Itís still a solid beer from a very good company, and Iíd drink it again. I just donít love it.

Pours mildly cloudy yellow gold with small white head that leaves minor lacing.
The nose is bread, lemongrass, cereal, candied sugar. Palate adds mild citrus and banana, plus spices. I noticed coriander, clove and cumin.
This is a mild farmhouse without much funk but some hop bitterness, reasonable level of alcohol with very slight buzz on the finish. Decent.

On tap at Jet Rock at PHL (after a connecting flight...I admit that all beers I have ever rated seem to get an extra +0.2 just for the fact that Jet Rock is the best non-tied-house craft beer bar in an airport). Also, the actual beer ratings by me are pretty lame. Hazy honeycomb yellow-orange with full white head and amazing patterns down the glass. Nice spice and moderate low noble hops. I enjoyed this starter to the flight!

Some floral hops, pepper, and lemon flavors dominate, a small hint of banana as well. Not bad, but nothing special.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. An almost clear one, pale golden in color and with a small, dense, white head. The aroma is quite banana-ish, with some spiced, peppery hints and a touch of citrus zest. Itís dry and medium bodied, with an appropriate carbonation level. Nice bitterness in the flavor, with some resins and pine cones. Peppery yeast, banana and a faint touch of lemon too. Lasting bitter, piney and peppery finish with some banana. Too much hefeweizen-ish on the nose especially, but itís a quenching and quite nice beer anyway. 150622

Not a bad standard saison. Light and yet fruity with decent spice. Easy to drink but not a full flavor. Donít go in thinking Belgium. Bottle
