Thanks to savvy1982 for the share! Pours yellow with a large rocky head. The aroma is lightly bretted with a very phenolic nose and some alcohol showing. The flavor has berries, dark fruit, oats and spice. Full body. Really nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Corked bottle #6005. Poured clear golden color with a large frothy off-white head that was lasting with excellent lacing. Heavy brett yeast and fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy blalanced sweet & sour flavor with a medium to heavy sour & sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid complex drinkable beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 4, 2010 Pours pale golden yellow with a full white pillowy head. The aroma has a nice lemony/citrusy character undergirded by a decent earthiness. As it sits, some of the citrus fades and gives way to stronger earthiness and hops. The flavor is rather mild with the citrus being most noticeable upfront followed by some of the characteristic earthiness associated with saisons. It finishes a little dry. The flavors were good, but I just couldn’t pull much flavor out this one. I was expecting a pretty good flavor of Brett but this just didn’t deliver.

750mL shared at Carolina Goes Sour. Pours a cloudy bright yellow with a massive white head that has very good retention and crazy lace. Aroma of grapefruit peel, Brett, perfumey hops, ginger root. Taste s fairly sweet, lots of perfume, spices, and Belgian pale ale hoppiness, grassy hops. Dry finish. Very nice!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours hazy yellow with a huge fluffy white head and a citrus and spice aroma. There is a pale malt and earthy yeast flavor that is spicy with a fair amount of hop bitterness. Complex, tasty and refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Pours hazy yellow with large fluffy white head. Aromas of lemon, wheat, belgian yeast, and some brett. Flavor of sour lemon, yeast, spices, wheat, and brett. Thought there would be some more funk or yeast. Very delicate brew and a good saison. Pretty solid overall.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
My first rating in 7 months. What foolishness conspires here, my friends? I put such things behind me: this seems a fitting beer to begin again.
Pours a slightly hazy straw with airy, snow-white head. Initial sharp clove nose clears with a little swirling, and the happy aromas begin: the smell of fresh rain on parched red earth, flowery lemon notes, menthol, black pepper, ripe pears. Bright and peppery on the palate, but a certain viney silkiness persists. Minty lemon flavor, briskly hoppy, dry with just a hint of melon sweetness in the finish. Beautiful, sophisticated beer. I do wish for just a little less alcohol.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not really sure if some age would help this, but it wasn’t at all funky. I was expecting some real funk out of this bottle. Poured into my glass, it had some sediment floating, which I liked and that gave it some haziness to it. Had a strange bubblegum flavor that lead into a spice flavor and finished pretty clean. Carbonation was right on, but I wasn’t impressed with this Saison.
