I'd appreciate some input on your favorite commercial examples of a Saison / Farmhouse Ale. After reading on the forums how much people likes Saison's I decided to try one last night when in the local craft beer store. I picked up a bomber of Green Flash Saison Diego and unfortunately I didn't care for it much. While I like funk, the spice notes felt too heavy handed to me, and I couldn't finish the beer.
As this is my only sampling of a Saison I'm thinking maybe I'd like another brewery's offering better and I'm not quite ready to write off the style.
So I turn to you, HBT to provide what you think are the cream of the crop commercial offerings of this style! I prefer to keep the price point to no more than $15 and ideally less than $10.
