Musty house blanket describes this bestPoured a hazy golden colour. Thin white head. Nose is borderline sour. Slight spice across the palate. Not a great example of the style. Passable at best.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a fluffy white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has notes of grass and sweet grains with a bit of light fruit underlying. Flavor is more sweet grains and sweet light fruit with some belgian spice and a hint of grass.

Smell is yeasty must. Taste is dry thin and crisp. Very refreshing and better than expected. Quite drinkable. No hint of the higher alcohol content either.

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!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy amber with a thin foamy white head. The aroma is a bit faint but smells like dry caramel malt and light doughy esters. The flavor is estery and mild with some pale sweet amberish malts and a light leafy flavor and bitterness, with a light eccentric estery finish. A bit plain but not bad.

Wow I am surprised that the scores are so low... I thought this was a pretty good Saison just a little heavier than most but still very refreshing. Try it again!

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.

Hazy gold, with a little white head. Not much aroma, a little citrus. Citrus and yeast flavor. A little bitterness. Okay, but not great.

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.
