4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle, from my secret Santa. Dated 10 April 2014. Cloudy, light yellow pour, with a big, bubbly, off-white head. Big banana aroma, with lemon, pear, riesling, cloves, and white sugar. Very sweet, with a light funk, and just a touch of bitterness. Medium to heavy body, sharp, bubbly, and a little dry. This is an excellent saison. Very complex and layered, with great fruity, yeasty, and (just a little) hoppy aromas. There’s a lot of residual sugar here. I kinda wish I’d let this bottle sit a few more months.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by Rob at July 4th hotel. Snifter. Pours an orange color with a thick head and some moderate lacing. Aroma of spices, light fruits, funky Belgian yeasts, and barnyard. The taste was light apricots and pears, Belgian yeasts, a little funk, hay, cereal and spice. Crisp carbonation, light and refreshing. Funky, almost tart finish.

Bottle shared by jayhawk73. Thanks Jeff!
The beer is orange with a towering white head. The aroma brings some tart citrus, wheat, lemongrass, mild funk, sweet malt. Decent flavor. Crisp and zesty carbonation. Mildly sweet with light bittering hops in the finish. This was ok, but not what I seek in a beer of this ilk.

Picked this up as part of a set at the brewery in Williamsburg. The color is golden straw with a nice foamy head that laces nicely. Funky aroma as one would expect with this style. Taste is bitter with some citrus notes. Nice and effervescent. I like this brew. Nice drinkability.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Given the name and rating date, perhaps I rot-boxed this one a little too long, but here goes. Pours hazy orange amber with a medium yellow-white head, creamy with nice lacing. So far, so good. Aroma is grainy, honey, grass, pepper, herbs. Flavor is spicy, pepper, medium sweet, medium zesty bitter, lemon zest everywhere, dust, herbs. Medium body and a bit hot. Meh.

Bottle. Crystal clear golden color, white edge head. Aroma of light fruit, hay. Taste is light lemon. Lacks the barnhouse funkiness that I like is most saisons.

Hazy copper in the glass. Nice fruity aroma with a touch of cardboard. A bit sweet for a saison, very nice... Some fruity flavors. Thanks to BZK...
