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.

Maybe I was in the mood for Saison on Indian Summer Sept afternoon, seems like a great match for Philly water.
a: Pours a sediment packed, hazy golden body with a fizzy head that dissipates and leaves a bit of spotty lace/
s) Mostly pleasant Belgian yeast, with orange and coriander and not much bubble gum or odd notes. Fresh.
t) Follows smell with a predominant orange flavor with coriander and spice; then in nice see-saw, yeast. hops. and bitterness arrive, attenuating into clean, dry finish.
f) Light bodied, effervescent, great wine-like apertif.
o) Simple, field worker saison, great first of evening or before dinner. Dry and simple.

part of a flight at The Brickhouse in Orwigsburg PA on Monday.

Faintly hazy golden yellow body. small but persistent bright white head. Some lacing.

faint spices on the nose, no bubblegum or yeast that I could detect.

The spices are a little stronger than the nose would suggest. Fairly sweet, low abv just about makes it sessionable. Good muted taste to it.

Between medium and thin on the muth, slightly dry and faintly peppery on the finish.

Overall, this is a Yards beer I've never had before, but would not be shy about picking it up again. Not a full throttle saison to be sure, but quite refreshing.

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.
