COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional farmhouse ale made with a very expressive yeast strain that contributes an array of tropical fruit, spice flavors and aromatics. Brewed with a variety of harvest grains including barley, wheat, oats and rye as was likely the case with farmhouse brewers of yore. The result is a complex, refreshing and distinctive example of this esoteric style. Intensely fruity (passion fruit, pineapple, mango, lychee), slightly spicy (clove, white pepper)

Pours a slightly unclesr golden with a small white head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of pepper and slight sweet bread. Taste is quite dry with a slight fruity edge, otherwise it is mostly some pepper and some floury cereals. Body is light to medium and carbonation medium-medium-high. It doesn’t feel watery, though, just light and easy to drink. Overall a good saison that will not revolutionize anything but I did enjoy it nicely.

I had it from the bottle. The taste is citrus, other fruit, grassy, yeast, and some hops. The sweetness balances nicely with the subtle bitterness. It was refreshing. This is a nice spring beer.

jgb9348 (5909) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 29, 2016
Clear orange-tinted golden coloured body with a thin, single centimetre tall white head. Aroma of dry oak, grass, hay, flowers, yeast, coriander seed and a touch of corn noticeable. Light-bodied; Sharp grassy and floral note up front with a mellow malt flavour with only some grass notes and a bit of very light hops. Aftertaste is relatively mild with some grass, herbs, hops and a faint bit of hay - not much going on here. Overall, a pretty subdued and very easy-to-drink saison with a nice, but very light profile - nice and simple to drink! I sampled this stubby twelve ounce bottle purchased from Beer Culture in New York (Midtown), New York on 27-November-2015 for US$3,00 sampled at home in Washington on 28-February-2016.

Bottle from a Lazy Dog Slightly hazy straw color with a smallish but short lived bubbly white head. Spicy yeast esters, light sweet bread faint earthy hops and a touch of funk. Light bits of citrus round this out. Pretty drinkable, not my favorite saison by any means but fairly well made.

puboflyons (3231) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle 02/03/2016. Slightly cloudy yellow pour under a modest white head. The aroma has a nice note of Belgian yeast, mild spice, a little tropical fruit, and toasted grainy malts. Light to medium body. The taste has a great toasted barley and grainy character to start with a tropical fruitiness that kicks in and a spicy bitterness to finish. It runs the gamut.
