BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Yards Brewing Co.
Pennsylvania, United States
yardsbrewing.com

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

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: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) bottle into a Weissbier vase; no production information.
A: Pours a clear, dark golden color.  Quarter inch off white head with modest retention.  Strong, persistent Belgian lacing.
S: Aromas of bread and clove.
T: Palate follows the nose except for strong up front bitterness. Clove greater than bread evident; tingling on tongue and roof of the mouth afterward.
M: Light to medium bodied with very persistent carbonation evident. Initially some excess astringency at back end, until warmed.
O: Surpringly light, creamy and crisp. Pleasant, if not overwhelming Wit-like Saison Ale.

Somewhat hazy yellow beer with a quickly receeding off white head. Pepper and slight spice on the nose. Maybe some tripel style yeast but nothing very bold. Slight banana, pepper and spice on the palate, something with the hop ending sort of makes a slightly metallic tinge to the ending flavor. Well carbonated and creamy. A decent enough Saison, enjoyable.

This got average reviews, but I rather enjoyed it and thought it was better than average. Had a sample of this at Duffy's Tavern in Boalsburg pa with Leah on our 20 anniversary trip.

Look: It pours golden with a white head. There is some lacing and it is very clear.

Smell: There are aromas of pepper, fruity esters, pepper, moderate spice, and hints of oranges.

Taste: There are flavors from fruity esters, bananas, moderate pepper, spices, and hints of orange.

Feel: It has a moderate fell and a moderately bitter aftertaste. It has a dry finish.

Overall it is a complex blend of flavors from fruit and spices with a dry finish.
