COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You might not expect a Saison in winter. But the enemy didnt expect Washington to cross the icy Delaware, either. Expectations be damned, we say. Were 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.

12oz can 3/17/16 (Jewel Mix A six)-42 in Tulip-Pours hazy yellow with a medium white head. Aroma of spices, yeast, and citrus. Taste of the same with a metallic back end. This light bodied brew is not very good and not sure if it is the beer or the contract brewery.

This isnt terrible at first but really loses it towards the end. Its cloudy blond w/ a huge, foamy head. Theres a pleasant slightly earthy/cobwebby yeast character along w/a bit of banana in the nose but its got a sort of metallic bitterness thats hard to ignore. This is slightly on the sweet side w/ a reasonable juicy texture. It would be drinkable but for that metallic not I mentioned. Oh well. Plenty of good saisons out there.

Single from total wine. Murky yellow color. A little spice. Lots of banana and baked bread. Chewy wheat. Medium bodied. Long semi sweet finish.

Pour is a hazy straw yellow with a small white head. Aroma is pretty much all yeast esters with a decent helping of banana and clove. Flavor is a ok fruit and the yeast esters kind of dissappear in the flavor. Finish does have some spice left on the tongue. The aroma was fine but the flavor left something to be desired. It was a bit watery and the farmhouse flavor only played a minor part.

355ml can. The cardamom just gets lost here in the wildly-fermented ester bomb that this beer is.

Like the cardamom spice. A bit hazy straw color with just enough bitterness.

Poured from a can. Hazy yellow gold straw. Lemony farm funk nose. Palate is citrus, dry through the middle...little Belgian spice. Decent beer.
