Light gold pour, whitish head. Aroma is lightly spiced, stone fruit and yeast. Flavor follows with a nice fruity note, yeast and just the lightest tart notes. NIce stuff!

corby112 (2722) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2015
Pours a cloudy, bright golden yellow color with banana-like hues and a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Very good retention, taking a while to settle and leaving streaks of soapy lacing behind. Earthy aroma with a decent musty farmhouse presence along with zesty spice, sweet citrus, bready yeast and ester-y light fruit notes. Funky yeast along with straw and hay followed by a strong yeast character. Lots of bread along with some bubblegum and banana. Peppery spice with hints of ginger, coriander and clove. Citric acidity with strong lemon pith and grapefruit. Decent balance in the nose but feels very American with lots of wheat beer characteristics mixed in there. Slightly watered down and light bodied with crisp carbonation. The earthier farmhouse notes are a bit toned down and the bitterness/hop presence is stronger than expected. Dry and earthy with hints of grass, pine, wet hay and straw. This is complimented by a prominent zesty spice presence that lingers throughout giving off hints of white pepper, ginger and coriander. The citrus presence stands out but it tastes less like a wheat beer than it smells. Some bready yeast but the banana and bubblegum notes found in the aroma are muted. Strong lemon acidity in the dry, slightly tart finish. Refreshing and pretty easy to drink but it lacks some depth/complexity. I prefer for the funky saison/farmhouse flavors to be stronger but they are pretty tame here.

It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Light acidic tartness in the finish. Taste of toasted grain, lemon.

Saisonís should be drinkable and this one is very drinkable. Good flavors not over powering nice and smooth.

UXO (1003) - CANADA - JUL 23, 2015
Appearance: hazy pale gold with two fingers of loose fluffy white head, good retention and chunky lacing. (4/5) Aroma: barnyard funk, citrus, crackery malt, herbal, peppery spice. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, mild tart. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, dry and slightly warming finish. (4/5) A bit sweet and boozy for a saison, but still quite good. I donít generally appreciate gushers, but this one was quite low-speed, so I could manage it with zero spillage. I suspect thatís largely due to this thing being two years old, but the extra time in the cellar doesnít appear to have done it any harm - thereís no runaway lactic or brett, for example, and the funkiness, though definite, is even-handed. Pretty much what it says on the label: a straight-up saison. (15/20)

Bottle at the brewery. Pours hazy gold with a thick, fizzy off white head. Tastes like herbs, thyme, rosemary, dry cracker malt, lemon, grapefruit, citrus hops. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like thyme, rosemary, lavender, dry cracker malt, and light citrus hops.

A good saison. Slightly sweet and fruit-forward for the style. But, enjoyable. Would have again.

Itzjerm (1850) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Not a bad saison. The interesting part is it has an aroma of a gose. Thin fading head. Flavor is typical saison yeast with very light sour. Good mouthfeel and carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A good saison. Pours an ugly yellow. Not as good as their sage, but well balanced. Smells and tastes basic. Not very memorable.
