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.

12 ounce bottle purchased at Total Wine Pembroke Pines, FL for $9.99/ 6-pack. Very good!

The color is a cloudy yellow with a minimal white head, and the aroma has a certain fruity sourness, much like white grape. The taste is slightly umami, slighly sweet, and mildly umami. Also, the palate combines a medium-light body, slick texture, average carbonation, and a long finish.

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.

halfonit (1364) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 5, 2009
Light gold color. Smells of pine and yeast. Sweet flavor with yeast undertones. Not too bad of a beer, just not my style.

3.2
CheersMate (1343) - Portland (Sellhood), Oregon, USA - MAY 14, 2009
Very big yeast aroma. Very sweet aroma as well. Hard to determine the sweet aromas, but they are noticeable. Maybe a spicy apple acidic aroma. Pungent aroma that is fairly decent. Haze yellow in appearance. Very weird yeast flavor. A short lived flavor. For $7 for a 22 oz. this beer could be a lot better. Shame on Great Divide. Not a very smooth aroma. It just kind of gives a subtle carbonated bite then dies down. The yeast taste lingers throughout, and then that sharp acrid flavor just cuts through. Decent brew.

22oz - Aroma of bready yeast with a touch of citrus and spice. Pours transparent yellow with a medium head and good lacing. Flavor matches aroma. Palate is smooth and creamy. Was drinking outside on a hot day and it was very refreshing. A nice summer brew. Not as funky as it’s Belgian brothers, but that’s ok.

Dervock (1337) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 10, 2016
Bottle - pours palen gold with a dense white head. Aroma is wheat, honey mild citrus and some funk. Taste is mildly tart with a funky wsge. Finish is dry and lingering. Creamy palate.

Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 13, 2011
On tap at urge in Poway. Crystal clear pale yellow with effervescent strong white head. Nose is super subtle with bits of pineapple and yeast. Taste is bright and light with just a bit of wildness. Kinda chewy in the back. Estroyed the glass with gooey lace. Not bad but kinda uninspiring.
