Bottle. A beautiful, bountiful pour. Hazy, muted orange with a golden tilt, the towering head of bright white, frothy foam hanging around for quite some time. The aroma is super sexy ... sweet and thick with a fresh, spring-time herbal edge. This drinks with a full-on complement of the promised herbal notes ... this would be delicious alongside a Thanksgiving turkey. (#4822, 11/11/2012)

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours hazy light orange with a foamy two finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of spices (including sage, rosemary, and thyme), sour ripe fruits, wet hay, black pepper, medical notes, earthy grassy and herbal hops, and some mustyness. Taste is about the same with a lot of spices up front with some nice farmhouse funk in the background. Has a medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and a dry, slightly bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a very interesting and tasty saison that I imagine would pair niceley with food.

Bottle from the brewery. This was explained to me as a giant burst of sage, but the sage actually blends into the myriad other spices, including those naturally present in the saison. Coriander and candied lemon. Sage comes through a bit more in the flavor, but despite its strength, I wish there was more. Good, full-bodied, style-appropriate brew with a nicely bitter after, though.

Cloudy dark straw yellow. Nose of sage, light white pepper, light herbs and light clove. Solid saison and the sage works really well here. Good with sushi.
