Hazy straw yellow in color with a big íol foamity foam foam. Yeasty, peppery and tad citrus like. A very well made saison but for some reason, the more I drink it, the less appealing it is to me.

Pours a nice stray colored yellow. Notes are spicy with peppery, citrus, hay, and earth notes. Taste is of spices, nicely toned bitter hopes for a little kick, wheat and alcohol notes. Nice solid beer.

750 ml bottle. Purchased at Table and Vine. West Springfield, MA. Cloudy golden color in the snifter. Steady carbonation. Nose is tons of barnyard and hay. Taste is light fruit, yeast, grass and just a little hop kick in the end. Very simple and straight forward. They hit the mark with this one. I have enjoyed every beer from this brewery and I am inspired to try more. At $9.99 a bottle itís a good buy.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Just a dang good saison. Citrusy, slightly funky, a tad bit of hop bite. I think I can smell banana and some sort of spice. Slight alcohol taste‚Ä¶ but itís actually complimentary.
Donít pass this one up‚Ä¶ I sure donít. Always get a 750ml bottle once a month. A go to saison!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, thanks to jleblanc! Hazy and quite pale yellow pour with frothy white head. Aroma is very peppery, lots of lemon peel, citrus, slightly yeasty, grain and fresh spicy hops. It smells super fresh and crisp, really inviting. Taste is of fresh grain, saison yeast spiciness, decent bitter hop finish, very enticing. The palate is a tad on the sweet side for a saison, but not much really. Good strong carbonation makes this beer really enjoyable. Although recognizably american in style in comparison to itís belgian counterparts, this saison is amongst the best I have had so far - truly delicious and now a permanent want.

Bitter in all the right ways, this fresh and complex Belgian style saison is really tasty. And oh the Amarillo hops.....excellent.

Bottle. Pours hazy gold with quarter inch white head that recedes to thin white head that retains. Aroma is spice, orange, and slight funk. Flavor is the same with a long finish. Delicious.
