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: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a Duvel tulip. No freshness date.

A- Pours a hazy light amber color with a 1/2 inch white head that retains decently before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a large bubbly center patch of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a thick ring behind.

S- Rich Saison yeast aroma brings about notes of banana and mild bubble gum. Slightly soily.

T- Flavor doesn't quite follow through as the yeast notes pop on the palate and then quickly fade leaving only a slightly bitter aftertaste. More tangy than sweet.

M- Quite vibrant and zesty with a slightly milky texture. Medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- I've come to realize that I'm real easy to please when it comes to saisons. I don't think I've ever met one I didn't like and this one is no exception. Both BA and the Bros gave it a low score but I say that, if you like saisons, try this one. It ain't bad at all.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured a beautiful light gold with a long-lasting foamy white head. The head leaves substantial lacing. The aroma is pretty good, with nice fruity esters. The taste has a sizable ester with hints of light fruit flavor but with a metallic bite on the finish. It has a nice feel on the palate. Its got some hits and some misses.
