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.

redlight (2325) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 30, 2009
22 oz bottle @ redlight redlight. Musty citrusy with traces of bananas and a slight earthy funk. Pours cloudy yellow gold with a thin white head. Crisp hops upfront, earthy spices, a slight fruity funk to it. Very refreshing and crisp. A very good drinkable saison!

Draught at Capone’s: Aroma of vegetables, yeast, and a hint of lemon. Poured yellow/gold in color with a small white head that lasted around the edges. Hazy. Sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of hops, yeast, spices, coriander and caramel. Medium body. Medium-dry texture. Average carbonation. Yeasty, lightly sweet, dry finish.

hopdog (13315) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2009
On tap at Capone’s. Poured a medium and cloudy yellow color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of yeast, some citrus, and ’musty’. Tastes of citrus, a little fruity (bananas), and spices.

22oz bottle $7 with a cool label that has a yellow checkered theme that reminds me of Dupont. Thick white head and a super cloudy whitish yellow color. The smell is just slightly funky, dusty, earthy, smells pretty much what I would expect for the style. The taste is quite refreshing or at least it makes me think I have been refreshed. Its been a long week. Nice yeasty, spicy flavor and goes down very smooth. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-25-2009 03:23:50

Ratman197 (15738) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 24, 2009
On tap at Great Divide Tasting Room poured a cloudy yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of yeast, citrus, banana, spice and light straw. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of citrus, yeast, straw, spice and light banana with a crisp dry lingering yeasty finish.

Doppelganger (1389) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - APR 22, 2009
Tap, Great Divide tap room, with Traci and Aaron. This was a free pint with the Earth Day walk to the brewery thing, and a nice earthy sort of beer for the occasion. Cheers to Great Divide for the generosity! Hazy wheat color, white head. Bubblegum, clove, cinnamon nose with a nice husky-sweet honey note. Spicy, pepper, rose flavor, light clean malt. Generous flavor volume. Pleasant dry finish. I wish a little bit that GD had chosen to express the idea of saison closer to the "refresh the worker" roots, rather than the "one pint will do you" modern idea of saison. Still, this was a very nice beer, and I’m pleased to see interesting yeast strains being given a chance to express themselves.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2017 Draught at the tap room. Dang it! Cary beat me to the first rating. Really a nice example of the style. Cloudy, golden pour and a nice fruity aroma blended with some yeast. Nice mouthfeel and a really filling saison because sometimes this style gets a little watery.

That1Guy (2241) - Colorado, USA - APR 18, 2009
Crushed with Jakebra at the Trinity Saison Fest. Nice fruity, earthy, kinda spicy nose. Looks like gonnorhea pee though. Pretty full bodied though with a great yeasty, slightly hoppy finish. A nice saison. Go Great Divide.
