Bracing, but benign, this Belgian style ale enlivens any experience with a spicy, aromatic start, citrus snap and fresh finish. Swing into spring with taste!

MacBoost (1924) - Victor, New York, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Pours a very clear straw with a white head. No funk in the nose, disappointing. Aromas of lemon, ginger. Very light and dry on the palate. A nice little blonde ale, but this is not anywhere near Helios. Scroll past.

jhamp9 (1917) - Corinth, Texas, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Clear gold pour with a white head. Strong pepper and clove aroma with some yeast. Taste again is very spicy with some yeast, earth, and vegetables. Prickly carbonation.

tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - MAR 15, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2013 Bottle. Gold pour, big white head, good retention/some lace. Aroma of floral/spicy hops, herbal, bread, fruity ester. Taste is lightly bitter, floral/grassy hops, ester, medicinal notes, cracker. Palate is crisp, slick, bitter finish. Really nice at 4.5%.

jaymobrown (1845) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Odd beer with a plastic taste plus citrus and berries. Good head and medium body. Good spice flavor.

3.5
wxman (1834) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2014
On tap at Global Brew. This is just what the name implies: a sessionable Begian Saison. Pours a bright yellow with a thin but retentive white head. Fruit and spice aroma. Taste is everything you like in a Belgian ale but w/o the sometimes cloying sweetness and higher ABV. This exhibits sweet pale malt, a fresh fruitiness, some grassiness and a bit of pepper, coriander and other spices. Clean and crisp; goes down easy. Good effort.

3.6
Beaver (1821) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 8, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden yellow with a big meringue white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is fruits and funk with some piney, floral hops and perfumey spices.

The flavor is sweet bready malts with a little funky fruit and some spices (corriander, pepper) and a good sized piney floral bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, I’m not sure I’d call it a saison. But I like it as a session beer with good bitterness and some funk.

3.3
Nephilium (1821) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Mild lemon and earthy aroma. Pours a hazy light yellow with almost no head. Light crisp flavor, with a touch of earthy notes and citrus. Very easy drinking, and a nice session beer.

4.2
ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a strong Malt & herb aroma with some grass and coriander thrown in. I like the smell. Appearance- The beer is a murky amber color with a large white head. Looks great Taste- Has a nice floral and malt flavor with some bitterness. Palate- A light bodied brew with moderate carbonation. I really enjoyed this beer, if I can find it again I will buy it.

keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Best before July 27, 2013.
Appearance: A tall and fluffy white head is perched on a slightly cloudy pale golden body. The head has excellent retention and is as dense as cream. Spotty lacing is left on the glass as it dissipates.
Aroma: The aroma is bright with lemon, straw, light spices and leather. This smells great, it reminds me of Spring.
Taste: This follows the aroma nicely with a bright lemon flavor that provides a slight tartness with some leather overlying the lemon that finishes dry. The lemon lingers on the tongue for a bit a touch tart and dry with a slight lingering spice. This is a bit reminiscent of sucking on a lemon.
Palate: Medium bodied with a creamy full texture, soft carbonation.
Overall: This is an outstanding session beer. There is no sacrifice in taste. If this were $7 for a 6 pack this would be all I would drink until it’s gone for the season. This is still priced nicely at $9 for a 6 pack, I just wish it came out a few months later.

2.6
degbert (1776) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with large amounts of visible carbonation and a fine-grained, quick-dissipating, white head. Nose is lemon, some phenols, and a touch of latex. Very crisp on the tongue, with definite bitter lemon notes; light hops present, bready grains, but the bitter sourness, reminiscent of citrus pith, remains dominant; too much so. Finish is acidic and short. There’s something out of whack here.
