3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes. Tasted at a tasting at Curtisís old house, probably around early 2012, from a 750mL bottle. Pours clear, bright yellow/orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to average, sticky lace. The nose is spicy saison yeast with a hint of sweet banana and a touch of green hops. The flavor is is more or less the same with a very pleasant hops and spicy saison yeast bitterness, very easy to drink. The body is just under medium with lively carbonation and a spicy yeast and nicely bitter finish.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A-Bread, pepper, with a significant funky yeast aroma. A- hazy golden hue, big pillowy head that holds for a long time with nice lacing. T- biscuity, bread, pepper, and citrus. P-very lively body. Has a very pleasant mouthfeel and dry pop on the finish really highlighted by the carbonation. O-A very enjoyable saison with nice barnyard aromas and flavor. The Pepery dryness haswonderful popping citrus notes. One of my favorite saisons in quite some time.

10 karat murky pour with a huge ivory cap that left significant lacing. Yeasty, peppery, lemony, funky, fruity, and bready. Nothing unique that separates this from others in the style but a decent example.

Sampled at Perennialís Midwest Belgian Beer Festival - Pours hazy yellow with a white head. The aroma has spiciness, fruits, earthy yeast and lightly toasted malt. It has a medium / light body that is very crisp and has moderate carbonation. The flavor starts with saison yeast, nectar fruits and bugginess. The finish is fairly sharp, husky and cottony. Pretty nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewery. Itís a little confusing that they call a beer "Saison," honestly. Pours a mostly clear gold with a somewhat off-white head. The aroma is bready, spicy, sweet, and fruity. The flavor is cleaner, though. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a clean mouthfeel. Only mild farmhouse funk emerges. Nice saison.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Huge gushing pour no matter how light you try to fill your glass. 90% snow white head. Nose of straw, lemon, and mild funk. Taste follows the nose and really isnít all that bad. To my surprise the beer really felt flat even given how much head it had. Not too enjoyable.
