Brewed by:
Yards Brewing Co.
Pennsylvania, United States

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.

Reviewed on 6/28/13 12 OZ Bottle in a tulip.

A - Pours a hazy gold with a two finger creamy white head.

S - Citrus, lemon and spice burst out of this beer to start. Having difficulty nailing down the spice aroma, not pepper just a general spice aroma that I cant pin down. Notes of malt more in the background.

T - Tart, light malt and spice throughout. Light bitterness on the finish and the spice lingers on the palate.

M - Light to medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Dry.

O - Above average Saison, but a little boring perhaps. Wouldn't go out of my way to have again.

A: The beer is clear golden yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation along with some fine particulates floating in suspension. It poured with a half finger high bright white head that quickly died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface and a collar consisting of large bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of lemongrass and pepper are present in the nose. Notes of also bananas and earthy yeast become evident as the beer warms up.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell but seems to be a little fruitier with notes of bananas and also has hints of Belgian yeast and sweetness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp and dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and could make for a nice choice if you are looking for a fruitier saison.

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Pours a slightly hazed straw color, thin layer of fizzy white head, no lacing.
S - Lots of belgian yeast and clove, other spices, pepper, some light banana.
T - You get a little bit of dried fruit and banana up front then it shifts quickly to a very spicy and pepper flavor, and last for a while.
M - Dry and a tad bitter, light on feel though.
O - This is just about an average saison, nothing special, but nothing awful, its definitely geared more on the spice side of things.

I like this stuff. Partially because I'm from Philadelphia (even though this city is a shithole) but mostly because this is a decent taste of the belgian style at half price. Taste it if you have the chance. Not bad. Just to meet number of characters

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a golden yellow/straw color with a half of a finger of white-colored head that quickly disappeared into a thin lacing of foam that covered practically the entire top of the beer.

Aroma: Typical Belgian Saison aroma of Belgian yeast, spices such as cardamom, clove, and lemon peel. Very nice.

Taste: Again, typical Belgian Saison flavors: yeasty, spicy (as in spices, not heat), citrusy. Notes of clove, black pepper, lemon, grapefruit, candied sugar, honey.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light, with some really good carbonation to tickle the taste buds and cleanse the palate.

Overall: I really liked this beer and found it to be a good example of an American version of a Belgian Saison. I’ll certainly be getting it again.
