3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Hops and Pie. Pours a cloudy golden color with little head. Came off the tap rather cold, so I warmed the glass in my hands for a bit before appreciating the scent of yeast, clove and sour cherries. Taste had plenty of farmhouse yeast,, lemongrass, coriander/clove spice, and grain. Has a big full mouthfeel, spritzy on the tongue, touch of heat due to the ABV on the finish but nothing distracting. Very nice beer.

On tap at Rackhouse. Pour is hazy golden orange with a small white head and decent lacing. Big banana, clove, somewhat doughy, spicy, biscuit, citrusy, orange peel, and coriander in the aroma. Taste is musty, straw, somewhat doughy, clove, banana, white pepper, citrus, grassy, and fruity with a medium spicy finish. Medium body with high carbonation. The Belgian yeast is very present . . . Definitely not a saison, more like a Belgian strong; tasty nonetheless.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2011 Approximately 12 oz goblet draft at the brew pub in Frisco, Colorado. Pour is a hazy golden with a frothy white head. Aroma is malt and wheat, bright Belgian yeast, clove, and some hay grass and earth. Taste is the clove yeast and malt sweetness. Aftertaste is some bright phenols. It all comes together pretty well. Palate is medium bodied, soft natural carbonation and the yeasty finish. I like my saisons a bit drier, but this was good. I didn’t realize the abv of this beer until after the fact, explains some of the sweetness. Cheers to the adiditional info I received via the brewery.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Falling Rock - hazy golden - taste is incredibly phenolic - lots of black pepper and clove, even a touch of banana - quite a bit of tropical fruit sweetness which is a little too high for my tastes - the string phenols do a scent job of covering this up - decent.
