Bottled. Hazy yellow colour, mediumsized white head. Earthy, fruity and slightly sour aroma. Flavour is dry, earthy but at the same time very refreshing. Quite nice Saison. Lots of herbal things also lurking in the background.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by Indra at KCRB tasting 7/3. Pours a cloudy straw with a thin, creamy, white head and small particles settling at the bottom of the glass. Aroma is fresh, sweet, citric and yeasty; reminds me of a punch that I’ve had with champagne and some citrus juices. Light to medium-bodied and smooth with a dry, tart finish. Sweet and yeasty transitioning to a tart citrus finish; nice and dry. Aftertaste reminds me of a tart Riesling; lingering on the tongue. Nice. Thanks Eric.

Hazy yellow color, cloudy white head, lace. A bit cellary, lemony-fruity aroma. Hoppy, grassy, lemony, balanced. Touch of alcohol in the aftertaste. Very good enjoyable saison!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Almost clear golden, rich head. Orangey nose. Fairly sweet and medium bodied with well rounded mouthfeel,. Soft and grainy with very well structured, seemless malt profile. Add to that some light fresh juicy hops and you’ve got a great, laid back saison.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled) Hazy golden with a medium, foamy head. Slightly alcoholic and acidic aroma with wheaty-lemony maltiness. Slightly cardboardy flavor with wheaty-lemony malt and grassy hops. Medium-bodied, acidic and dryish palate with foamy carbonation. I don’t think this was at its prime, as cardboard has clearly eaten much of the hops.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2013 I thought htis was an excellent saison. I nice lightly spiced saison that was both subtle and interesting. It hid the alcohol exceptionally well and was overall quite tasty.
Had again and raised from 4.4 to 4.7
