Tempting aroma with a darker than expected appearance, changing taste of muted floral notes and a sticky mouthfeel.

Not a great saison…a little sticky and unbalanced. Dark gold-amber. An awful lot of clove spice and sweet malts. Lacked the crispness and subtle spices of a good saison. Pass.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very light smell that is slightly fruity, taste is smooth very slightly sweet malt, hint of fruit and sweetness in the beginning that turns a bit bitter on finish..good at first but finish is dry and a touch too hoppy

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
can @ Habersham Beverage / Savannah GA --- Clear dark amber with an interesting funnel cloud down the center, good tan head cover, strings and waves of lace. Taste is malt and spices (but not coriander). Everything doesn’t seem to be in sync which diminishes the overall experience. Not exactly a Saiaon, but not an ale either. Not classifiable, not balanced, not good.

On draft at the brewery last June. Hazy golden pour with a white head. Spicy nose and fruity taste. Slightly sweet and malty in the finish. Ok.

Orange pour with a huge white head. The aroma has some juicy orange character as well as some coriander. The flavor is similar. I get some pithy orange as well as some coriander and wheat. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Can. Pours deep gold with a small white head. Aroma is orange peel, spice, light yeast. Flavor is roasted almonds, wait, no -- that’s the roasted almonds I’m eating. The beer’s flavor is clove, coriander, orange peel, light wheat notes, yeasty. Mildly sweet, moderately bitter. Mouthfeel is medium but tongue-coating. Missing the fine, spritzy carbonation of a classic saison.

12oz can from The Beer Store Wilson. Dark orange hue, murky clarity with mostly diminishing white frothy head. Spice, malt (as warms) aromas. Strong spice (clove cigarette) up front with the same short light finish. Soft carbonation, oily texture. Pretty good, I still don’t have much to compare it too.

Bottle. Pours an orange color with white head. Quite foamy. Yeasty, spicy, malty, slight fruity aromas. Yeasty, apricot, spicy, malty flavors. Kind of dirty beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2014 22oz Bottle. The pour was a clear medium orange with an average (1-2 finger) white pillowy head that settled down to a thick film which lasted throughout and possessed excellent sheets of sticky lacing.
The aroma was of light grain malts, floral hops and a funky Belgian yeast with notes of citrus (orange), coriander, and a somewhat mild fruity ester (banana and apple).
The taste was yeasty right off the bat with a lightly sweet acidic presence and a touch of citrus which was present throughout, the finish was lightly bitter with a hint of citrus peel, a very light tartness and a bit of fruity spiciness at the end. The flavor lingered for a good long while following the swallow, with a nice yeasty spicy taste staying on the taste buds for a tad longer.
Mouthfeel was just beyond light in body and dry in texture with a bold and lively carbonation.
Overall I personally thought this was a rather impressive tasting Saison with a mild fruity bitterness and a spicy yeast taste that finished off this brew wonderfully, making it a very enjoyable drinking experience... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews
