3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to Kyle for the bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Smell is pretty nice, a bit of citrus and a definite sourness note, could be stronger. Palate is pretty much spot on with a slightly heavy feel on the tongue with some good and very fine carbonation. Taste is a bit weak, and more in line with an IPA than a Saison. Some definite hops and a bit of sourness with a bitter aftertaste. Needs more sour, still quite drinkable though, I’ll probably reach for this on hot summer days.

2 or 3 oz sample provided, it pours a golden colour, pretty clear, would like more of cloudy unfiltered look for a saison, the smell is not very spicy of anything, the flavour is very yeasty but it doesnt taste like a belgian yeasty, if I had to guess they used nottingham yeast or something very similar. I want more of a belgian taste out a saison, I would try again, but I wasnt a fan the first time, it reminded me of this homebrew where we used nottingham thats why I say nottingham and it tasted similar but that beer was a pale ale. So I would say expect more of a pale ale taste then saison, in my opinion

I tried this beer on June 24, 2011 at "The Beerbistro" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a hazy golden orange colour with a 1" creamy white head. The aroma was musk, earth, and grains. The mouthfeel was weak bodied with mild carbonation. The flavour was slightly sweet, earthy, a little spice, and grass.
