3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle, thanks to my sister. Pours a beautiful gold with bright white head. The aroma is herbal, minty, slightly phenolic, and estery. The flavor is very pleasant. Strong herbal qualities, mint, sage, the spices are very prominent, but I still find this to be a nice beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a pale gold colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of lemon, yeast rosemary, and sage. Flavor is quite herbal and bitter with light citrus undertones. Medium-light bodied with moderate bitterness and a dry bitter herbal finish. Mix of titular herbs and citrus is quite refreshing at first, but bitterness slowly overwhelms the senses with a grassy element. Enjoyable when paired with Indian food.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a hazy light yellow. There was a tall foamy white head initially, but dropped to half a finger quickly. The aroma was predominately bready yeast with some lemony tartness. The beer was light and slightly tart. The beer had a fresh taste to it. There was a good bite from the rosemary in the beer. A hint of thyme was detected later in the drinking of the glass. The flavor of this beer was unique.

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow pour with a thin white head. Light, citrus aroma with lemon zest notes. Smooth taste with some chardonnay notes. Grassy flavor with some citrus in the background. Pretty good Saison.

bottle - Pours hazy gold with a lingering white head. It smells of herbals, especially sage, yeast, and some fruity notes. The flavor is moderately bitter and herbal with a pleasant fruity character. It has a medium body and a dry finish. Really tasty.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a decent white head. Aroma of citrus and spice. Taste is lemon, banana, spices, and malt. A bit different, but still enjoyable.

Bottle. The pour is very light. The aroma certainly is full of spice. The taste is an interesting blend. Better than I was expecting, good.

Flaska í saison smökkun 21. mars. Fölur, skýjađur. Sterk lykt af kryddjurtum, nánast einsog sjampó. Ekkert endilega fráhrindandi samt. Í bragđinu er slatti af grasi, góđ beiskja. Frekar hlutlaus miđađ viđ allt og allt.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Sendiks in Brookfield. Super pale yellow/orange with a foamy white head. Lotta lace, but it was foamy. Aroma has many tangy spices, including cardamon. Taste has sweet fruit, spices, some sage, some cardamon. Some biscuity malt, but tanginess from the spices trump all. Light to medium bodied and tangy. Finishes sweetly spicy with some length. 3 Shrug? Nice for a summer day, I’d wager. Interesting. 13.1

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very green tasting. As in not young but as in herbal. Which is probably the hoped for idea for this beer. Yet I did not like it so much. Would not be a beer you'd want more than 6 oz pet sitting of. I want to say the straight saison du buff of another version I had in the past was very good but I don't remember the greenery in that one.
