Saison / Farmhouse Ale |  6.50% ABV

Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
Saisons were originally brewed to keep farmhands happy and hydrated during the warm summer months. True to the style, Yards’ Saison is a semi-unfiltered Belgian style ale brewed with distinctive Belgian yeast. It’s delicate and fruity with a subtle spiciness. Styrian Goldings in the kettle lend a touch of hop to the palate, balancing out this highly drinkable version of the classic style.

A - A finger's worth of lush whimsical airy whipped froth that is pure white in color... Slight to moderate retention gives way to a full veil of lacing and slight collar... The color is honey with an ever so slight haziness... A light to moderate bit of slightly sluggish carbonation rises within... Quite a bit of lacing clings to the glass...

S - Candied sugars... Belgian yeast... A slight fruitiness... A faint wheat component... Honey... A very inviting scent... Quite robust... A surprising depth and complexity...

T - A combination of wheat and Belgian yeast is first to great the senses... This is followed closely by the candied sugar and honey... There are some orange zest notes as well... The finish has a slight floral component... Excellent balance with good depth...

M -On the fuller side of light bodied... Sleek... Lush with a very rich texture... Just a kiss of carbonation, but still rather lively...

D - Not your text book Saison, but all the requisite elements are still present... An interesting spring / summer seasonal twist on one of my favorite styles... Not sure this could be considered amongst my top tier of Saisons, but none the less this could easily be a staple in my spring / summer seasonal rotation... Another find job by the fine folks at Yards...
