3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A saison with a Belgian twist. Citrus, fruity and floral aroma. Slight golden color with a fizzy white head. Full but light palate with good carbonation. Typical sweet and fruity saison flavors with a hint of caramel and spice from the yeast. It goes down easy with a hint of alcohol.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (750mL): Hazy, deep honey with thick head and excellent lace. Very lifted clean fruity beer. Off dry, not sour and medium low bitterness. Clean fruity palate. Lovely length, weight and fruity flavor.
Very sound. High alcohol and so too hot and not refreshing.
Classic over the top American Beverage when they almost had it right.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 c&c from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy gold with a large frothy white head. Aroma is spicy, grassy, citrus, earthy. Tickles the nostrils. Med body or better. Hits like a tripel, but ... Hmm.... Itís a spicy, earthy tripel sort of thing. Itís Belgian allover. Iím not sure this fits the alleged style, but itís very tasty stuff. Finishing like Grains of Paradise. And a sort of apple fruit ester. This is very unusual? Good tho!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I actually forgot where this one came from as my Texas trip was just going from beer store to beer store. Anyway, it pours slightly hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is slight saison funk, dry hops, some herbalness. Taste is similar. Slightly bitter and sufficiently hopped saison with citrus and spice notes. While I donít think that it is anything that special, I think that the rating it has here is somewhat too low.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A hazy copper-orange profile with a nice tan head, supplying healthy belgian lace. some slightly sticky resin hop aromatics, and rather citrusy from the get go. good carbonation with some light íbelgianyí sweetness upon first sip. The mouth-feel is dominated by medium bitterness that develops into a very VERY dry finish that lingers and is reminiscent of an extremely dry white wine. Many descriptions label this beer as a saison, but personally I thought it drank much more like a dry belgian style IPA. Worth a taste or two, but there are many superior counterparts out there.
