4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. Aroma- definite hints from the wine barrel, citrus and yeast. Poured (into a chalice) a nice golden with just a bit of head, nice bubbling. Nice subtle beer. Some sweetness but a tart finish of a granny smith.

A hazy, light yellow pour with a white head. The aroma is peppery with some citrus. The light body has sparkling texture with lively, almost fizzy, carbonation. The taste is tart with a dry finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a chalice. Immediate aromas of citrus and yeast typical of belgians. I thought the taste was good but the aftertaste was off for belgians. It had a bitter/hoppy taste typical of IPAs. Memorable but I’d say it’s not true to the style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle: This one pours a pale, straw yellow color. There was a huge frothy white head on it that didn’t linger long, nor did it leave any lacing. Nose is mainly peppery and coriander. Some citrus also. The taste is very good. Somewhat lighter body, but very flavorful. Some wheat notes, coriander and peppery notes, and some citrus, just like the nose. Subtle, yet a bit complex and very tasty. I will definitely have another.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle:   Dirty straw, hint of gold, large rocky white head, falls quickly, spotty lacing.   Pale floral and citrus nose.   A little bit of straw and mealiness.   Smells decent for an American made Saison.   More barnish and musty on the tongue than the nose suggests.   Not all that mealy, not spritzy or bubbley either.   Semi-sweet, a bit grassy on the backside, smidgen of lemon.   Still remains a little musty and barnish.   Body and mouthfeel are actually quite good, not bubbley but its smooth.   This one was pretty flavorful from start to end.   Probably one of the better American examples that I have had.   Thanks Kevin for this one!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
June 18, 2010. 22oz bottle shared by blankboy with me, gregclow, jerc & mabel. Hazy pale yellow pour with a smallish white head. Mouth-watering aroma - lemon, spice, sweet malt, some lactic sourness, grassy bitterness, alcohol - a lot going on!! The taste delivered, add in coriander bitterness, sour funk, fruity green apple crispness - damned nice. Thick, lively mouthfeel, acidic, dry, tart and spicy in the long, shifting, fairly complex finish - really, really good stuff.

Pour is a light gold with a white head. Nose is of lemon and spice.Taste is very similar. Smooth on the tongue but nothing all too special.
