Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Gambrinus1184 on 12-23-2012

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).

12oz. bottle served in a tulip. Bottled 082614 printed on the bottle. Pours a hazy honey blond with a two inch, bright white cap that sizzles and pops and quickly settles into a soapy slick that coalesces around the shoulders. Nose is somewhat reminiscent of a witbier - citrus, clove, coriander and yeast. Taste consistent with nose; however a bit dull and muted. There's also a pleasant lemony presence towards the finish. Mouthfeel is light and lively with a mild, even astringency. Overall, a decent beer but not what I would consider a Saison. A pleasantly drinkable and refreshing summer beer in both character and abv; however, I'd rebrand this as a witbier.

12oz bottle poured into pint glass. Pours a hazy pale yellow. Ephemeral thin head and virtually no lacing. Fruity, yeasty scent. Crisp carbonated feel. Initial fruit flavor (a little like pear to me) yields to clove aftertaste. This seems like a well-executed example of the style but with nothing to make it exceptional. That being said, in the interest of full disclosure, saison is not my style of choice and I sampled this a little out of season. (7.5)
