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.

Bottle from release #3. Pours with a light haze and voracious carbonation. Medium golden-yellow hued body. Very large and lasting white head that leaves great lace. Aromas are strongly herbal and spicy. Slightly green aroma. Sage and coriander. Peppery, phenolic, very spicy and herbaceous, tobacco, light lemon zest, peppery. Medium pear esters, light tropical fruit/mango. Dry finish. Flavors are oddly tropical, lemon verbena, sage, rosemary, pineapple, peppery, lavender, coriander, pepper, mango and passionfruit. Lightly earthy hop character. Low malt and low sweetness, but some perceived sweetness from the esters. Very tasty. Lots of green sage and herbaceous qualities in the finish. Lively bubbles, medium to low bodied, dry, lightly warming. Spice prominent, but completely within reason. A pleasure to drink.

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.

Wow. I only had a sampler but over never seen a nose I could swallow. Nice unique beer. Malty with tons of herbs. Almost like drinking a Meal. Be ready for it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

clear gold some white head. Aroma big rosemary and sage sausage. Tastes sweet sage, salty bread. surprisingly easy to drink for such a strongly herbed beer. peachy sweetness helps it work.

arminjewell (7270) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, slightly hazy yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big herbal notes with sage, rosemary, thyme like notes into some slight spice, bread and doughy notes come through, slight fruit in there but very herbal and grassy. Taste is a mix of the herbs, the sage is the most pronounced, into a bit of biscuit, bread, some yeast, finishing with some fruit, slightly bitter.

Bomber. EPIC herbal nose, smells like my backyard blended with note of grass and a hint at barnyard. Amazing really. Flavors are hay, grass, lemon,and bready yeast flavors up front, while the back is all herbed out with thyme and sage running all over your palate. Long lasting finish. Little bit bitter, little bit sweet. Fantastic brew.

Wow this smells fantastic. A mix of herbs with sage of course. Can’t really identify the herbs by name in the body other than to say that it works really really well and manages to give it an excellent fruitiness as well. My new favorite saison or herb beer, either way.

after4ever (6468) - Brier, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Draft at SB> Pours a very slightly hazy pale gold. Loose creamy white head that goes away. Sweet and grassy nose, almost minty--clearly the sage, but comes on very, very sweet, at least in this batch. Watery medium body with very soft carb. Light crackers and faint grass on the mid palate. Not nearly as intense as the aromatics would suggest. Mild dry finish.
