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.

12 oz can pours light, clear yellow with small head. Yeast and spice in the aroma. Tastes like a spiced version of the classic Belgian farmhouse ale. This is earthy, clean and refreshing. This should be a summer seasonal. Great Saison!

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

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

Can. Pours a clear pale yellow with minimal white head. Aroma of Belgian yeasts and cardamom. Taste is a bit sour up front, light to medium body, with a tiny bit of bitterness and spiciness in the finish. Pretty good.

Nephilium (1763) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 18, 2013
This starts with a sweet bready malt aroma, with hints of cardamom. It pours a hazy light straw with a full white head. Nice earthy bitterness to it, very light on the palate. Not a bad saison, although Id still probably prefer this on a hot summer day.

From a can. Very light yellow color. Slightly spiced character with hints of bubble gum, banana, and lime. Easy drinking and smooth.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Can: Pour is hazy gold with a fast fading medium white head. aroma is strong cardamom and clove spice. Ginger and lemon as well. Flavour is lemon, slightly yeasty. white pepper, cardamom spice. Earthy biscuity malt. Body is a touch on the thin side, but overall I enjoyed this very spice forward beer.
