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.

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

I poured from the bottle to a pint glass. Clear, no noticeable yeast cloudiness. Gold color, a little darker than I'd expect. I can smell floral smells. I can taste hop bitterness, nothing sweet, no malt. The hop bitterness is not overwhelming, and they used a hop that I like. There is an aftertaste, but it's light and fades too quickly for me to figure out what it is I'm tasting. Maybe some fruitiness?

3.4/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: Pours a hazy medium golden yellow in color with some light amounts of visible carbonation and some yeast particles in suspension. The beer has a half finger tall white head that quickly reduces to a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of pale malts along with some very light lemon/citrus, black pepper, and yeast. Very little funkiness.

T: Starts out with a pale malt body with some light hints of candi sugar sweetness, lemon citrus, and black pepper spice.There is a touch of yeasty flavors in the finish.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Dry in the finish.

O: This is a pretty average saison in my opinion, easy to drink and refreshing but not as good as some of the other saisons I have had recently. The flavors are quite enjoyable but this is not likely one that I will be rushing out to get again.

3.65/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A dull lemony yellow brown body, kind of opaque, with some nice rising thing carbonation, presents a good white and creamy head even and uniform. Settles slowly to a whipped up character. Fairly good looking.

Nose is some mild farmhouse like funk, slight spritzy carbon dioxide, small lemon, slightly floral. Subtle but nice.

Palate seems to be quite much what the nose provided. A good texture and body with a decent malt backbone. Dense malts give to a little bit of funky quality. Citrus and lemon seems to come out with some bread action on the finish. Sweet cream like tastes pop out a bit also.

Overall quite good, but also kind of hammered down. Good texture and feel really saves the beer, I could have this again.
