Hazy gold pour with off white head. Aroma smells like my spice drawer. Taste follows nose Sith a bit of funk. Love the concept. Love the aroma. To my tongue, this flavour is not supposed to be liquid. Kind of tastes like someone took a decent saison and spilled an Italian blended spice packet in it. It just did not come together for me. Still a better than average option.

Pours a clear gold, slightly hazy, thick white head. Lemon, honey, herbs. An acidic, herbal taste, lots of lemon zest and a touch of grapefruit. Decent saison.

Bottle. Slightly hazy golden pour with a white head. Very herbal nose. Each herb really compliments the others. Wonderful blend of rosemary, thyme, sage, and parsley balanced with funky saison notes. Flavor is similar. Very drinkable. I really enjoyed this.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle, purchased because it wasnít too expensive and it said "saison" in the name. Pours hazy gold with creamy white head. Great lacing. Aroma: botanical -- sage, thyme, menthol throat lozenge, juniper berries. Really overpoweringly herbal. Taste: citrus, herbal, dry; less intense than nose. Short, dry, lightly bitter finish. Zesty. Lively carbonation, medium- body. Overall: Iím not big on overpoweringly herbal saisons, but this one grew on me some over ounces 4-8. Of course, after that it reasserted itself as overpoweringly herbal and unpleasant, but Iíll focus on the positive because thatís just the kind of guy I am.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy deep gold with a thin white head, moderate retention, very fine cling lacing. Amazingly deep herbal aromas: rosemary, sage, thyme, parsley, with a gentle funky note as well as pine resin, and biscuit. Light body, velvety smooth. Mildly sweet with a mild bitter finish. Very enjoyable.

Great herbals that come through in this lovely, pleasant brew.
Brilliant herbals on the nose after an opaque straw pour.
This is an incredibly drinkable brew and a winning combo from the folks at Dogfish Head, Victory, and Stone.

Pours yellow with a medium head. Aroma is mostly rosemary with a hint of spice. Flavor is herby and interesting. Finish is clean. Iím not sure I love this, but itís definitely different.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 mL bottle. Hazy gold with a nice white head. Lots of herbs in the nose, with rosemary being the most dominant. A little malt sweetness underneath. The flavour is milder than I expected; the herbs are actually not too bold. In the flavour they blend together in a fairly balanced way. Need a little something here to balance the herbs though; some funk or something.
