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.

Bruce’s Birthday Bash at the Craft Clerkenwell. Thanks to the old boy Bruce. Light haze on this gold beer. Little white head. Light dry palate. Airy. Mild fine carbonation. Pronounced herby character with a trace of citrus underneath. Dry finish with a little pine. Okay.

Clear golden color, medium white head. Aroma has lots of spice. Taste is spiced straw, fruit. I think the spice is trying to substitute for the saison character.

Can shared at Bruce’s 30th Birthday Bash - CBC Clerkenwell, London. Thanks to The Peter! Pours clearish yellow with a fine, white foam head. Herbal nose, lots of white bread and dough. Light to medium sweet flavor with more white bread, herbs, white sugar. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Clean finish, more herbs and white bread. Quite clean overall. Some grassy hop bitterness. Solid saison.

Can at Bruce’s 30th celebrations, 08/02/13, thanks to Peter for sharing this one. Hazed pale golden with a thin white head that clears to bubbles at the edge. Nose is spice, herb, grass, lemon. Taste comprises pale malt, yeast, citrus, spice, a little less depth than the nose suggested. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, dry in the finish. Ok - drinkable stuff but far from being a great saison.

mcberko (17339) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2012
Sampled on tap at PIB, pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of floral notes, flowers and yeast. Flavour is dominated by some flower addition, a little soapy and lightly yeasty. Weird saison, taking over completely by whatever additive is in here. Anything but a traditional saison - decent.

brokensail (16440) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 7, 2014
On tap @ 21A. Hazed golden pour with white foam. Aromas of bubblegum, lemon, pepper, and sage. A very herbal aroma. Sort of grassy as well. The flavor is super zesty and herbal. Tons of lemon, pepper, and sage. Slight grass and rosemary. Really heavy on the cardamom. Quite dry and seltzery. Meh.
