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.

Pour on tap at Red Wagon, hazy golden-yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grass, bread, some bubblegum, hints of wheat into a bit of white fruits, some pepper. Taste was a mix of pepper, grass, bread, hints of biscuit into a bit of white fruit, bubblegum, finishing fairly sweet, slightly spicy.

PorterPounder (7687) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 2, 2015
Athens, Ga. - Five Points Bottle Shop - Atlanta Hwy. - 12 oz can. Light-medium gold pour, slightly sparkling, initial white bubbly head that fades away after a while. Aroma has some lemony sourness to it, a hint of of yeast. Flavor has some lemony citrus notes, a touch of cake mix, some coriander spiciness, a touch of cloves. Mouthfeel has a decent thickness to it. Not a huge fan.

An interesting take from an audacious brewery. Not a typical saison -- a positive for an American brewery given Old World style. Nice spice due to cardamon with the alcohol providing weight and finish. Eminently drinkable.

rumproasts (5309) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2015
can. Hazy golden with one finger head. Very nice yeast on this one. Mild, but flavorful. Spicing is light to medium. A pleasant surprise.

Really great spiced saison. Highly underrated IMO. Excellent flavor and aroma, with nice body and finish. Pleasant. I would definitely drink this again.

TATE (407) - Lubec, Maine, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Can. Pours a cloudy yellow with thick white head. Lemon aroma. Seems like I can taste the alcohol. The beginning is spicy and citrusy and it finishes with a hop bite. A little stronger and heavier than I was expecting but it grows on you as you drink it. Low rating more indicative to the style not being my favorite. 21st is new to my market so Im trying them all and overall they are very nice.

Can dated Enjoy by 4.30.2015 and cracked the top to an aroma of light, earthy spices and Belgian yeast. Pour is honey-lemon with a soft head, dissipating almost as fast as it rises. Lemony flavor and a lightly sour taste that pulls under the back of my tongue creating a bit of a salivary response. The finish is dry, but short, the swallow leaving an oily feeling across my tongue and the carbonation just saving it from being flat there. Not a bad experience, but nothing terribly exciting either.
