Bottle. Thanks Ramy. Pours mostly clear golden with a medium white head. The aroma is herbal, citrus, yeast and flowery. The flavour is citrus, thyme, herbs, bitter fruit and light pepper. Bitter finish. Bubbly mouthfeel.

Cloudy gold beer, thin white head. Complex array of fruits and herbs on the nose. Light and very dry palate. Sweet herbs and tart tangerine and orange. Minerals in the dry finish. Good stuff! DFH inventive as ever!

Absolutely beautiful on the pour. Fantastic head, outstanding lacing. Great color. This is a very interesting, different, and complex saison. I would highly recommend it if you’re serving roast poultry, pork, or perhaps poached sockeye salmon or similar fish. Pairs extraordinarily well with soft cow’s-milk cheeses like Camembert. This is one of the few beers that honestly requires a complimentary dish. Excellent. Unique. Wonderful.
While this was the best beer/food pairing I think I have had, I would say that it is slightly off-putting when enjoyed by itself. It is a very different beer. Different from most other farmhouse styles due to the savory profile.

Light coloured with some retained head, and leaving a lace trail. Aroma is very good, the sage leads the nose, and there is White pepper and a blend of other spices and nices. Medium mouthfeel, its a palate tingler, but it goes down well, leading to...good drinkability. A new age saison, I may have liked this version the best.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a somewhat hazy gold with a white head of foam. Good retention. The aroma is grassy, musty, and sweet. Taste is a musty sweetness. Not quite as clean as victory’s rendition, but still good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a two finger white head that fades very slowly leaving a good lace. Almost clear amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Savory nose and flavor follows - sweet and savory, not a fan of saisons but this is one of the best. $3.50 for a 12oz bottle from Tully’s Beer and Wine Wells, ME.
