Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
You might not expect a Saison in winter. But the enemy didn’t expect Washington to cross the icy Delaware, either. Expectations be damned, we say. We’re sneaking up on winter with a boatload of bravado and this Belgian-style farmhouse ale. Dry hopped with whole organic cardamom pods, our Saison has an assertive spiciness. In your face, winter.

a hazy light yellow pour with 2 fingers of white head which left behind nice amounts of lacing. smells of lemongrass, pepper, a nice fruity citrus scent of tangerines. a very floral flavor.. lemongrass, pepper are both there, honey, sunflower petals come to mind in a weird way. medium body with a nice amount of carbonation. a slight sting on the lips from the alcohol.. feels nice.

this is a pretty decent saison in a season where there's barely any competition. i gotta hand it to 21st amendment for the bold move of releasing this now.. and thank them at the same time :)

Nice saison, pretty much everything you look for in one. Tart, but not overpowering, yeast note, and a touch of cardamom. Light body, very drinkable.

Clear golden colored beer with a puffy white colored head.

Smells floral and spicy with a powdery yeast scent. Smells sweet with a fair aroma of coriander. Scents of summer flowers and a faint bubblegum scent.

Starts out mildly sweet with a quick drying flash of spice. Lemon and pepper with fainter taste of mineral water and bubblegum. Moderate bitterness. Taste of flora but no fauna.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall this is a tasty Saison.
