COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our homage to the beers that have quenched the thirst of Belgian farm workers for centuries. Brewed with barley, wheat and rice and fermented at high temperatures with a special blend of four different yeast strains, Saison is fruity and slightly tart, with a dry finish that makes it that rarest of treats–a beer as refreshing as it is complex. 7.3% ABV.

Very pale, hazy yellow appearance, and a lot of carbonation gave this look a bit of a macro vibe, but the lemon zest and orange peel on the nose indicated that this was not one of the mass produced swill. The taste was pretty timid for a Saison, with flavors of lemon, simple sugar, and white pepper coming across each light and refreshing sip. The ABV felt nowhere near 7.3%, and the body was soft and airy. Very refreshing, but left me longing for more depth.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a pale, hazy yellow, with a medium, foamy, white head. The aroma is wheat, hay, lemon zest, and vanilla. The flavor is citrus sweetness and a nice funky, sourness. The palate is medium, acidic, and creamy, with fair carbonation and a sour aftertaste. Overall, this is a nice, crisp beer.

Cloudy watery yellow. White ring head. Smells like an old dusty room that hasn’t been opened in ages but in a good way if that’s comprehensible. It has a mystique and nostalgia about it. Taste is biscuity and finish is sweet but hoppy enough not to suck. Different and decent.

Purchased at Armanetti’s in Chicago, IL, enjoyed during a day off due to company holiday. Appearance is a bright cloudy gold with a thin white head. Aroma mostly of yeast, some light straw hay in there as well. Taste is very yeasty with a tart lemon flavor, it’s light but not particularly refreshing. It’s not horrible but in my opinion not very good.

Draft to taster. Looks okay. There isn’t much to speak of in terms of smell or taste; very underwhelming. Mouthfeel isn’t saison-esque. Disappointing.

Dough yeast aroma, no hop/minimal bread malt pale and hazy, minimal head retention medium sweetness light body, lively carbonation, long and creamy finish super refreshing - I wait all year for this tasty seasonal. Great beer for weekend afternoon chillin’

Cloudy light hold, white head with decent retention. Has a wet, musty, yeast start colony aroma which is weird. Taste is crisp, refreshing, complex, and yeasty- nice warm weather brew. Almost citrusy on the mouth, borderline pineapple-followed by a more barnyard saison flavor with a kick of yeast that mostly hides the alcohol. Really pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2013 Draft at Falling Rock. Poured a hazy straw, with a fluffy, white, two-finger head and good lacing. Smell is funk, must, guava, mango, biscuit, pepper, lemmon peel and yeast. Taste is very well-balanced, light pineapple, funk, white pepper, biscuit, straw, banana, and grass with a moderately spicy finish. Mouthfeel is full with high carbonation. Damn good saison.

Finally getting to try this. Pour out of 12 oz bottle is nice slightly hazy orange with fluffy white head, carb streaming off the bottom of the glass, aroma has big bretty tropical fruit with pineapple, touch of biscuit and lots of yeast notes, some slight funky notes as well, nice lemon, and spice notes around in there as well. Taste is nice and spicy, lemon pepper notes, white pepper and coriander mix into some slight funk, touch of grainy biscuit and bread, hints of tropical fruit finish fairly sweet but dries out well.

Cloudy yellow color with thick white lacing. The aroma of this beer is it’s biggest turn-off...rotten lemon and a slight butt feel. The palate is nice and has a nice summer feel, so it is recommended to drink this beer from the bottle. Great lemon smoothness throughout the palate.
