Hazy amber body with some floaties and a thick white head. Very good blend of fruits and spices in the aroma and flavor with a hint of grass. Creamy and smooth with a clean dry finish.

Pours a murky amber color with a thin white head. Excellent aroma of earthy yeast, herbs, grass, and flowers. The flavor has the same profile, earthy yeast, herbs, grass and flowers, but is less powerfull. Light body, creamy texture.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, vintage 2004
Nut brown. Slightly hazy (some floating yeast) .Good tanned head. Aroma has herbs, hops, yeast and caramel plus touch of barnyard. Medium-bodied, carbonated. Refreshing summer drink with good hop character. Some sweet yeasts in the background. Though classic saison, this one is quite close to some quality tripels. Warming alcohol in the aftertaste.

2004 Vintage. This was an interesting beer, especially since it was brewed with dandelions (if I only knew those weeds in my back yard could be used for something useful). This was a very nice treat.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lighter bodied, with obvious grassy flower notes in nose and taste, but also strange spices. Perfumy, dry, sometimes chemical-like aftertaste is actually enjoyable, but hard to describe.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Broke open this badbwoy while watching the second season Magnum PI DVD set. Hard to believe ol Tom Seleck didn’t get even one of the several Ferrari’s used. Of course, he could probably afford to buy us all one. Anyhow, I poured this into a short stemmed wine glass. Nice orange, off white head. Body was brownish orange. Nose started a little skunky then mellowed out to a more earthy feel with a little bit of flower. Taste swung back and forth with some sour notes, the dandeline being preseant, but not overwhelming. Some spices here and there and a little mint even which caught me by surprise. Taste completes with a bitter-hope-apple taste, not too offensive. Worth $9.99 in my book and somehow reminded me of Unibroue’s Maudite which I had right afterwards. Yea....I was Piss n’ Lit

Grassy and herbal tea nose leading to a nice spicy yeast and biscuits lead in. Very strange sour notes probably the dandelion with white pepper and white tart fruits. Has a bit of Basil and Oregano toward the end with a nice nitter and sour apples finish.

Deep golden/orange in color with a small white head. Aroma of honey and fruit, slightly acidic. Fruity and spicey flavor reminscent of flower and herb gardens.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle. Corked and capped. Pours a darker color than most saisons- mostly amber- slightly hazy and a good head and lace. Aroma is on par with southampton saison- lots of spices- clove, mild fruitiness and awesome yeasty aromas. Aroma also gets much better as it warms. I wouldnt have noticed any dandelions except that maybe it darkened the color as it was a little darker than usual. Flavor is slightly less exciting as I would have expected from the amazing smell but it was still complex and on par with any other top notch saison. Pissenlit seems to have a more fruity and malty flavor than most yet still retains that farmhouse spicy character with lots of yeast especially in the second pour when some of the sediment gets into the glass. The finish is slightly bitter, and very clean and smooth.
