4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled at GABF on 9/18/2010. This saison pours a light gold color from a 750ml bottle. Medium to large sized white foamy head with nice lacing and good retention. The aroma is sweet, spicy and floral. A medium bodied saison. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops and herbal and spicy. Lively carbonation. A very crisp and clean tasting saison. Light and refreshing. Finishes crisp and dry after starting out sweet. Excellent saison. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

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.

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.

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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Poured a dirty beige color ale with a super large off-white foamy head with great retention and some super good lacing. Aroma of rustic malt with light peppery yeast notes and some light dry hops in the aftertaste. Taste is also dominated by rustic malt with balanced level of sweetness with some peppery yeast notes and some dry hoppy notes in the aftertaste. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation. Very solid interpretation of the style with great balance and easily drinkable character.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2012 Tap @ Funkwerks. Light lemon yellow orange appearance with a medium sized white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Spicy, yeasty, peppery, and citrusy light bodied nose. Initially black pepper followed by lemon and orange citrusy elements in the flavor. The wild yeast is spicy and very tasty. Peppery and spicy finish. One of the best American Saisons that I’ve ever tasted.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a slight hazed deep yellow gold with high carbonation and a fluffy nice head. Aroma is orange tangerine yeasty motes with some mix of tropical and citry and earthy hops, good pils crackery bready malts. Wth some saline earthy phenol as well. Flavor is cracker, fresh pls malt, cobwebby sea foam, must with freshnherbal floral hops, tangerine yeastiness, somehwo it all works and is extremely lively and dry in the finish. The fg is defintiely dropping in the bottle as it comtinues to ferment as the carbonation can get very high. Extremely bad for shipping, and the caps arent holding, but otherwise this beer is phenomenal.
