3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours golden with a nice white head and lacing. The aroma was herbal, earthy, and citrus. The taste was lemon, coriander, herbs, and hops. There was nice carbonation. The subtle sweetness was balanced nicely with the bitterness. This was tasty and refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle picked up at Elevated for March Madness consumption. Commonshawn and samadouche in the house. Much debate on which version we should rate but settled on this variety based on order of brewery collaborators and ABV. Light golden appearance with hints of orange. Good froth with quick dissipation. Aroma of herbs dominate the nose with an earthy/grassy quality. Taste has all the elements of a traditional saison with coriander and spices coming to the forefront. Little bit of citrus and grassy characteristic. Mouthfeel has a good tangy bite to it. Feels like a very professional effort. Kind of like they put too many herbs into the equation and the end result is strange. Iíll probably rebuff the opportunity to try this more than once.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle from elevated with commonmac during March madness. Dark gold with small white head. Weird smell of beef stick. Must be the herbs. Oily and bitter. Atypical beer herbs throughout. Felt like I was drinking a roast. Pretty bitter for a saison. Kinda weird. Didnít really like it.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a golden yellow color with a light lemon peel aroma. Taste is lightly grassy, with a sage aftertaste. Easy drinking and dry after the swallow. Some hay and citrus flavor throughout. A little underwhelming in complexity but refreshing nonetheless.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz 2012 bottle served in a lager glass.
Pours a yellow-gold color, lightly hazy, and with a huge creamy white head that goes over the top of the glass despite a rather gentle half-pour. Appears to have very fine, natural carbonation.
Aroma: funky, yeasty, hoppy, grassy, herbal aroma.
Taste is similar but even more herbal. with traces of the herb additives. Lightly tart; neither sweet nor bitter.
O: very interesting and very herbal, but refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is very herbal, rosemary, bay leaf, coriander and sweet lemongrass. Some light peppery notes in there as well. Flavor is moderately sweet, well drinkable and again herbal. Loads of green herbs in the flavor, not overpowering but just suiting the beer quite nice. Well, quite heavily carbonated, very sparkling and very crisp. Aftertaste is sweet and medium short. Nice one!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A grass floral herb aroma. Has a fresh herbal garden sensation. Hazy yellow amber body. Silky white head is bountiful and thick. The suds cling to glass. Has a tart lemon garden taste. Like drinking an herbal garden. I do like but not crazy about it.
