COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You might not expect a Saison in winter. But the enemy didn’t expect Washington to cross the icy Delaware, either. Expectations be damned, we say. We’re sneaking up on winter with a boatload of bravado and this Belgian-style farmhouse ale. Dry hopped with whole organic cardamom pods, our Saison has an assertive spiciness. In your face, winter.

Sehr hell und klar, süßlich würziger Geruch, sehr schwer zu beschreiben, wie ein Lager mit sehr interessanten Beigeschmack, frisch, süßlicher Antrunk, interessantes Bier

A cloudy yellow body with a white head that had some retention. A nice presence of carbonation through out. Mostly spices on the aroma. Cardamom was strong, but there were peppery notes. Mild barnyard and a bit of bubble gum. Flavor was a little on the sweet side. Otherwise it was well balanced. Cardamom was strong, but not overpowering. A nice sense of yeast. Carbonation was appropriate. Decent mouth feel.

Can. Hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma is just totally overwhelmed by cardamom. Not good. Taste adds some spelt and citrus which balances out the cardamom assault. Prickly mouthfeel. Ok but I really wish the cardamom was dialed back.

Clear golden pour w/ a thin white head that leaves speckled lacing. The aroma is deliciously enticing robust w/ spice. Unfortunately the taste falls short of the scent. It’s light & watery as the majority of Saisons are. The spice flavors are undermined by the thinned of this beer!

Nice. Comes together with a lot of tangy apple finish. Pours cloudy blonde with good head and lacing. Finishes with light sourness. Pours with big puffy cloudy of foam. Some hay. Tap at DC Beer festival.

Can. Bright, piss yellow with a huge, rocky head of bright white foam. Quite an herbal presentation -- lavender, thyme, sage. Very frothy mouthfeel an d a bit of whipped meringue. Quite yummy. (#5478, 3/30/2014)

Poured into sam’s glass. Golden, cloudy appearance with a small white head with decent retention and lacing. Aroma lemon, grapefruit, pineapple, with a little earthy spicy notes. Taste as i would expect from aroma with a nice tart and bitterness. Overall very happy!
