Served in a Mikasa tulip. Pours a slightly-hazy golden-apricot color with a two-finger white head and some pretty sticky lacing on the way down. Nice collar throughout. The nose is full of wheat and some phenols; there’s a bit of pepper and some light fruit. The flavor is full of wheat and pepper plus some pear and other fruits. A bit of a cidery character as well. A bit heavy on the pepper and phenols. Medium body with a dry finish. Good carbonation. Pretty good, but not something I’d likely go back to.

Light golden in color, hazy with a thin head. Cloves, light fruit aroma and flavors. I get the spices coming out very nice and the malts add to the flavor. Dry and crisp this was a very good Saison.

Can shared by Bob, thanks. Gold color. Some sweetness and I do taste some apple, but the flavor and aromas are light and there is not much here. I didn’t enjoy this as much as the other raters in the group.

This poured a cloudy yellow colorw ith a white head. Aroma was medium spices and yeastyness, some light lemony fruit too. Flavor was fairly dry, mainly spice but bland too. Eh.

650ml bottle pours a golden orangeish color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some nice thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel malts and some woody earthy hops with a hint of yeast. Taste is bold malty sweetness with a bit of earthy bitter hops and hints of yeast. Not sure what style to classify, but not like any saison I have ever tried. A unique and interesting ’harvest ale’ as it says on the bottle. Quite enjoyable.

Bottle at a recent BA/RB tasting... Poured golden with a white head. Sweet, yeasty, with some spice and light vinous fruit characters. Wheat and vanilla with a balancing hop character.

Pleasant, malt-forward beer with a healthy amount of sweetness. Somewhat cloying amounts of honey and caramel. Snappy hops are refreshing, herbal and spicy. Subtle fruit notes of pear, apples and white grapes. Even though it’s on the sweet side, it is refreshing. Curiously, this beer seems more like a maibock than a saison.

22 oz bomber courtesy of bvc. The pour is a hazed gold copper, along with a small off white head. The aroma is a pleasant soft yeastiness, hay, earth, light citrus clove. Taste is hay, earth, and a pretty strong yeast clove, and then opens up with some floral citrus bitter. Very dry finish. Palate is medium bodied, unfiltered mouth feel, low carbonation level, and the dry flinty bitterish finish. Easy drinking beer, thanks for sending this my way Brandon.

Off orange appearance. No head Bit of citrus and lemon zest on the nose. Wheat and rye as well Pretty sweet like lemon meringue on the tongue. Bitter bit fleeting with citrus and honey. Maybe a bit of cedar forward notes and floral hibiscus
