Notes/Commercial Description:
A contemporary take on a timeless classic, our flagship Sanitas Saison blends old world tradition and new world ingredients. Bright gold in color with a cloud-white head, expect this beer to glow with aromas of sweet apricot and bubble gum. Our unique Saison yeast imparts a refreshingly tart fruit flavor while French and American hops leave pleasant citrus and grass notes in the finish. A fine representation of the modern Saison.

An easy drinking, refreshing and crisp Saison.

aroma: Belgian yeast and spice, clove, white wine and slight honey.

taste: Belgium spice, honey, white wine, clove, citrus - predominately lemon with some orange, sultanas and slight pepper.

Simple but refreshing and tasty - would be especially nice on a summers day.

Had this beer before on draft and decided to give it a 2nd chance from can

Pours a mostly cloudy light golden color with a hint of amber hues throughout. A low soft fizzy head with limited retention through the tasting.

The aroma is butterscotch which is what I got the first time too. Very distracting. Some base underlining beer notes hints at nice wheat backing. Some nice esters, with tropical fruits pineapple and hint of mango. Phenolics are a bit hidden but a minor white pepper, rose peddles and an almost coriander hint.

Taste continues with the diacetyl. Not as descript vs the nose. Malt is moderate with a touch of biscuit and wheat. Some harshness boarderline over attenuated. Esters and phenolics are light but good. Some more citrus lemongrass finish.

The body is moderate to mod-light. Carbonation is light especially considering style. Some lingering astringency/harshness as noted before. Overall some nice flavors but diacetyl on both tasting make me think I wont buy this again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Had this in the taproom a few times and had to bring home a 6-pack to drink and review.

APPEARANCE: Yellow straw with a decent sized, stark white head that foams up quickly as soon as the beer is poured. Enjoy the head while it lasts though, it quickly settles and disappears leaving nothing but a thin lattice-like pattern on top of this crystal clear beer.

SMELL: Big, huge bubble gum on the aroma with a nice backbone of lighter fruit aromas. A touch of banana and a very slight spice round the nose out.

TASTE: The bubble gum is still there, but the fruit flavors take over once the beer hits the palate. Again, banana and a little spice are present here, along with some tropical fruits, but they soon give way to a dryer finish of grassy, lemony hops.

MOUTHFEEL: Light in body, sweet to start and drying as it finishes, this is a very well balanced beer.

OVERALL: What an insanely easy beer to drink. It is really hard to believe this is only 5.2%. Full of flavor, yet light in body, this beer is rife with contradictions; sweet, but dry...not malty, but not hoppy, yet somehow both at the same time...a beer you can throw down on the river, yet still fit for a wine glass in a Michelin Star restaurant. Sanitas is off to a great start.
