At a bottle sharing. Pours a darker golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, spice, and citrus. Taste is yeast, coriander, lemon, and malt. Pretty good.

Dominated by Belgian spice...not much farmhouse character to speak of. Maybe personal pref, but give me something with some barnyard any day.

dbarnold (1126) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Decent saison, light spice, good carbonation and just a bit of farmhouse funk. Dry finish, goes down easy. Nothing special, but pretty good, worth a shot.

ben4321 (3823) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Location: Bottle at Nerd Beer Epic Weekend, 1/26/13

Aroma: The aroma is heavy yeasty, with plenty of spice/coriander, and some citrus
Appearance: It pours a cloudy darkish orange color with a small head and some light lace
Flavor: This one has a solid Saison flavor, with lots of Belgian yeast and spice flavor to it
Palate: The body is medium, it has a clean feel, a ton of carbonation, and a fairly dry finish
Overall Impression:  I thought this was a pretty solid Saison. It is probably not a top of style Saison, but it is quite good. I liked it. The best way I can describe this is clean, drinkable, and fairly fresh feeling.

Patrickctenchi (3478) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Tap at Trion: Hazy golden with white head. Scent is a sweet yeast and light fruits. Taste is spicy, creamy and fruity. Not a hint of sour. A bright and well brewed saison. A pleasure.

HoppyAlesToYou (156) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - JUL 9, 2011
Nice spice, predominantly white pepper, on the nose, along with some barnyard. Substantial white foam rests atop the straw colored ale. Aside from the aroma, there some bread and a touch of alcohol upon tasting. This is a heavy Saison, with a creamy mouth feel. Another fine ale from a promising craft brewery.
