3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 ml bottle purchased at Carls Meat Market, Kittery for $5.99, decent buy. Hazy orange amber type color displaying thin head in the snifter. Aroma is peppery yeast, bready yeast and straw.
Damn ! That is some peppery yeast, snap! (hello 1994 with that comment) Flavor has a big yeast display with secondary flavors of straw and dusty wheat and very faint citrus notes. The texture of this saison is chewy yeast with a mild bread feel. It also has a drying affect on my tongue. I can see this would go great with some spicy Cajun food. Could go well with many different seafood dishes. I enjoyed this, above average.

A very solid, enjoyable example of a Belgian style saison. I’ve had a couple of beers from this brewery, and all were quite nice. Nothing outrageously amazing, but all very good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale orange-amber body, medium sized off-white head, and spotty lacing. Straw, stonefruit, citrus, yeasty bread, a little cracked pepper. Medium to full bodied, lively carbonation, a hair sweet, lingering finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Le liquide est superbement translucide, ambré étincelant. Les arômes de pain aux noix sorti du four, de caramel chaud et de levure fruité sont invitantes. Le corps est délicat mais avec un effort sucré soutenu suivi d’une finale saline et sèche.

Most saisons I drink I find uninteresting. This one was very nice. I didn’t eat it along with crawfish, but I liked the yeasty, spicy aroma. Flavor was smooth, and the mouthfeel was solid. This was one of the better saisons I have drank.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft - Citrus, light grass and some berries. Clear gold with a thin white head. Fruit esters, grassy bitterness and a yeasty finish. I actually like this quite a bit, sweetness and bitterness well balanced.

I didn’t drink this with crawfish, but it was good nonetheless. Light, orangish golden, healthy head, and a smooth mouthfeel. Citrus and straw. Pungent and crisp.
