Bottle from GBBF, 2012. It pours golden yellow, with a thick white head. The nose is hay, spice, freshly baked farmhouse bread, tangerine and pineapple. The taste is pine, zesty orange, tangerine, grapefruit, spice, hay, straw and underlying alcohol warmth, with a dry, citric finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. Balance is spot on. Drinks very well.

Draft at butcher and the boar. Nice Saison aroma. Mostly clear gold. White head with nice lace. Really awesome Saison. Has a spice in the finish, stronger hop than usual for the style as well as stronger in alcohol. Awesome.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Local Option in Chicago, IL. Poured a nice, slightly hazy gold with fluffy head. Smelled strongly of spices, and went down exceptionally smooth given the alcohol content. I definitely did not taste the alcohol in it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, shared at RBAG Summer Session 2012. A large frothy white head sits atop a hazy pale yellow body. Some lacing. Aroma is nice rustic yeast, straw, clean cereal. But this yeast is really outstanding! Medium bodied, creamy smooth with fine carbo, and lots of yeast, pepper, and hay.Rustic and comfortable. I would never peg this at 8%-- I could drink this all summer!
