Wow, I really liked this saison. Lots of sage, really and truly sage, on the palate and the nose. Fresh. Plenty of sticky and piney resins. not over-sweet or over-hopped or anything. Excellent and interesting.

Semi clear golden pour with really nice bright white head and sticky lacing. Extremely nice and refreshing. Great herbal sagey aroma. The bitterness of the safe though is just a little on the harsh side on the flavor. A bit unusual, but honestly, a really nice change up. Pretty cool.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Firkin at Bailey’s Taproom. Hazy medium straw color. Light delicious fruity nose, with hint of herbs. Fruity, floral opening, sage comes out strongly in mid palate, finish is quite mild, a sort of wild child. Thin body. Pleasant but doesn’t have a lot of saison character.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
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
