3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A 22 fl. oz. bottle, Release #26, brewed on 11th March 2015 and packaged on 6th April 2015. Poured into a d’Achouffe tulip glass. It poured a bright but hazy golden orange colour with a just under two finger white head that dissipates slowly and leaves lots of nice lacing. Aroma is full of sweet orange citrus with touches of tropical apricot, lemon, orange marmalade and a herbal character (although I’m not sure if its sage, maybe thyme). Tastes of orange honey sweetness, sage, pepper spice, almond biscuit and a bouquet of herbs. Medium bodied with high carbonation and a dry finish. Overall it’s quite different to any other beer let alone Saison that I’ve tried. It’s perhaps a touch to sweet for me, but the biscuity, almondy, herbally finish is interesting.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
August 27th, 2014 - In addition to visiting the local breweries out in suburbia, my father and I have taken to a tradition of visiting Epic Brewing, where he has a special affinity for the brews, though he himself is not a picky taster. But something about Epic stands out to him, so we make the drive through downtown to get a mess of samplers. And today we begin our sampler parade with the Utah Sage Saison. Under the finger of thick foam is a slightly bubbly, slightly cloudy dark straw beer, which is an effective costume hiding the verdant, herbal, olive green scents and tastes inside. The nose is a breathtaking dive into a beautiful vista of the desert at sunrise, when the desert plants are fragrant with evaporating dew - sage and pepper, even green bell pepper, but mostly a wafting, calming scent of sage that sits with poise on the grain smells of the beer. Sage is woven beautifully in the flavor too, with a touch of sweetness and white grape for depth, and a nice, soft, foamy body that perfectly delivers the curious and untraditional sage. And the touch of hops bitterness works brilliantly, bringing some botanical bitterness to the herb that it may have lost in harvesting or cooking. This is an impressive start, and by itself, a reasonable justification for a visit to Epic.
