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.

Spicy character on the nose and palate. Interesting Belgian notes, but I like that they aren't overwhelming. Nice clean finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

For a saison, this is oddly light in color, and even in taste, it has a tartness to it that’s unexpected. But the spiciness it has is just perfect. The can says it’s brewed with cardamom, and that must be what gives it a nice effect that combines a light and crisp summer beer with a stronger bodied session beer. The combination is nice.

I poured it from the can into a glass. It pours a hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma is lemon and spice. The taste is lemon, clove, yeast, and hops. It’s dry and bitter. It’s very crisp. This was flavorful and refreshing.

Pours a hazy bright yellow with white head. A sour citrus and yeast aroma. A citrus, wheat and yeast taste that suddenly has a grainy and bad malt taste that lingers.

malty, spicy aromas. golden and slightly hazy in color with decent head. taste is medium body with notes of clove/banana, peppery, and plum.

Having previously disliked 21st Amendment’s offerings, I only bought this because: a) they once made a beer called "Monk’s Blood" that was very tasty b) my selections at the store were limited My first sip was from the can, but when I poured into a glass it still tasted extremely metallic and bitter. Once the nasty bitterness faded, I could detect some of the promised cardamom, which hung around my mouth like a team of cheerleaders after their team just got trounced in an ugly way. If I brewed this at home, I would consider it a failure and in a region that produces many fine Saisons, there is no reason for this overpriced, soulless insult to the style to exist. In short: blech.

12 ounce can thanks to Eric. Pours a clear yellow color with a small white head. A big citrus lemon nose. The flavor is more lemons, soft peppery yeast, light toast. Quite light, solid.

Smells great. Light spice. The body is much less interesting. Just a light tongue tickle but not much here.

Poured from the can into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA. I am not a huge fan of Saisons, but I did find this one really lacking in the taste department. I normally love 21st Amendment beers.
