COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This seasonal Saison is brewed with fresh herbs. The first whiff is that of a festive array of rosemary, thyme with a dominating profile leaning towards sage. This beautifully crafted farmhouse style Belgian beer is warm with herbal notes and backed with earthy hops.

On tap at the Denver location. Pour is clea golden yellow with a small white head and good lacing. Herbs, sage, vanilla, citrusy, light biscuit, and basil - heavily dominated by herbs. Taste is big sage, lavender, spruce tips, floral, doughy, grassy, and basil with a fruity finish. Medium body with crisp carbonation. Well-crafted but much too she heavy for my liking.

Slightly hazy with a light gold hue, under a thin foamy white cap. The aroma has a lot of rosemary and thyme, as if the brewers wanted to make a steak marinade, with a touch of bright belgo fruitiness. The taste is smooth and crisp with that herbal note from the nose of rosemary and sage/thyme, some light citrus rind hoppiness, a sweet undertone of sweet Belgian pale malts, light pear and apricot notes throughout, maybe some peach on the finish. Complex and interesting. Sweet yet very herbal.

Smells like a sour ale and hits sharp on the front of the tongue and buttery toward the back. I thought it tasted delicious.

Herbal, light safe aroma; golden appearance with an off-white head; hoppy, with a definite but not overwhelming sage taste; fizzy on the palate with a clean finish; overall, a terrific beer, refreshing with hops and a clean herbal flavor ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BrettTaylor (451) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Poured as a taster in Denver tap room. Sage on nose along with basil, very spicy and dominated by sage, crisp, could be good with food but I don’t think I could drink a full glass without something to eat. There’s just far too much sage here.

Orangeish pour with a nice white head. Yeasty aroma with the sage present. Flavor is a nice bready saison with just the right amount of herbaceous ness from the sage
