3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance had a nice looking bronzed amber color to it. It had a one finger white foamy head that died at a moderate pace. There was just a bit of thin sliding lacing.
The smell had a delicately sweet malty base with a fairly deep rustic earthiness to it.
The taste was sweet and earthy with a decent rustic backup to it. I did get some sweet apples and pears in this one.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium with a decent sessionability about this. The carbonation was fairly smooth.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good saison worthy of having again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 11/2014. Pours lightly hazy deep copper amber color with a 2-3 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, pear, apple, black pepper, caramel, toast, brown bread, herbal, straw, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast ester and dark/bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, black pepper, caramel, toast, brown bread, herbal, straw, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, black pepper, caramel, brown bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and bready malt flavors; with a very nice malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly prickly/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good amber saison. Good complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a very dark, almost brown amber color with a huge pillowy white head. Aroma is a little bit sour, dark fruit, honey seem to dominate the nose. Tastes of caramel, honey, dark fruit, sweet grain, and cereal. Nice beer, would definitely drink again.
