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 - Pours with a small head of white foam on top of the hazy, golden body. The foam settles rapidly and leaves little lace in its wake.

S - Lig malt with some spicy notes of anise and pepper.

T - Sweet wheat and malt up front. Some anise in the middle and a finish of black pepper, clove, and light tartness.

M - Medium body, moderately high carbonation, and a balanced finish.

D - Not bad, it isn't particularly flavorful as saisons go but it's pleasant enough.

A: thin head on a dull gold cloudy body with very small floaters in it.

S: lemon and orange citrus, some pungent easy and candy sugar and corriander.

T: the cirtus is more tart and sour than sweet with the flavor a little bland. herbal notes, clove, light belgian yeast.

M: light to medium body and moderate to high carbonation. Not as dry as one would expect for the style.

Overall: simple saison. drinkable but doesnt stand up to others out there for the genre.

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?
