4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 This is awesome! Aroma is citrus, floral, hint of banana with some yeast notes as well. It’s a cloudy golden pour with a white head that doesn’t linger but clings to the glass. Taste is awesome. Fruity, yeasty, smooth and sweet with some slight sour funk notes. It really matures on your palate. The strange sour funk"ness" is what makes this taste so interesting. It’s refreshing and complex at the same time. Love it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear straw pour. Estery barnyard yeast aromas which continue thru the taste. Ends reasonably clean and dry. Not my favorite, but very on-style for a saison.

The beautiful orange look pour with some foam on top of it. The taste is very fruity which I am not fond of fruity beers but this someone got me puzzled and interested to taste more. Not bad for first try on that beer.

Loved it. Flavorful yet light with a touch of lemon, pepper, lavender, and citrus. Everything is subtle and great. Creamy mouthfeel with some efforvescence that is perfect.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours quite hazy lemon with a bit of an orange hue and huge creamy white head. The aorma smells like a fresh orange spring morning, so pleasant in the nose. Flavors of sweet and citrus yeast that settle pleasantly on the tongue with just the right touch of tart/bitter flavor. The body is quite carbonated.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Out of the bottle, it’s hazy, bright golden yellow in the sunlight. Tan-ish yellow head clings to the glass. Bright aromas of banana, apricot, syrupy fruit, also pungent hay and funk, black pepper, dough and malt. It’s an intense Saison, with a deep and rich malty bite, along with citrus twang and brightness. Fairly thick and full bodied as well. It holds up well at room temp. Tasty tasty if you’re a fan of the style.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle courtesy of denverdiv. Thanks. Pours a cloudy dark yellow color with a monster fluffy white head that has fair retention and crazy lazing. The aroma is classic saison with lemons, spices, mums and earthy yeasts. The taste is also classic saison and is reminiscent of the duponts; many complex flavors at play here--I get lemons, pears, a bit of apple, salt, pepper, honey and some biscuit. The palate is silky smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes long, but not dry, with lingering fruity yeasts. Overall: Wow, very pleasantly surprised by this one, perhaps the best American saison I have tasted.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2014 Tap at the source. Pours hazy golden color with white head that lasts and leaves. Smells of esthers, clove, wheat, and banana. Drinks smoothly with mild lingering bitterness. Light to medium bodied. Malty mouthfeel. Tastes of esthers, white grape, and slightly roasted malt. Finishes with mild lingering bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy orange with medium white head. Smells lightly of spices with some funk. It has a lovely light flavor moving into mild spicing and topped off with a slightly bitter finish. It is a good saison that I find highly drinkable.
