750mL bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a thick white head. Lemon, apple, some funk, slightly tart. I really liked the lemon flavor to this Saison. It made it very drinkable and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Batch#1 Pours a hazy medium yellow orange. Lasting large rocky white head. Aroma is fruity, citrus, yeasty, light peppery. First sip..wow. Just perfect. So balanced. Everything is just right and flows so seamlessly. Sweetness, bitterness, tartness, yeastiness, dryness all there and working together beautifully. Supremely drinkable and refreshing. This beer makes me happy.

Very unappealing ugly generic label. Inside the bottle is a different story. Lovely Hazy golden color. Great beer. Ahhhh! beautiful oak. Barrel beers are heavenly. Really delicious. Mild sharpness to the oak. Reminds me of Telegraph only not as soft and creamy. Wheat, funk, hay, barn, french, light spice. Ooooh this is good! Perfect palate.medium body, creamy, sticky, bitter, long finish. An Amazing wedding beer.

Hazy straw, unbelievably beautiful, dense, rocky white head. Great lace. Smells like funk, pepper, hay, light citrus...summer in a glass. Flavor is sharp lemon citrus, which fades into a very pleasant funk, as well as faint pineapple and peppery accents. Great complexity ranging from earthy to funky to acidic fruit. Really dry finish invites you to finish it faster than you should. Unreal... Wish I had a case of this.

Light wet farm and spice and floral scents. A cloudy enough to not see through the glass but not so cloudy you cant see the stream of small bubble in the center. mmm I am smelling it some more it smells amazing. Light body but flavor that increases from a light straw into a delicious bitter funk. It fades slowly leaving you time to consider the variety of spicy, earthy and fruity flavors.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2014 My Bottom Line :
Citrusy, floral and bready throughout, this dazzling Wild Saison adds herbal wild yeast angles to the very refreshing dryness and delicate tartness.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A dollop of foam decorates the hazy straw blond.
-Gets breadier when the yeast is poured in. This second glass blurs out some of the masterpiece felt in the first glass, but it’s a wondrous Saison nonetheless at this point.
-Chlorophyl-like vivacity seems to ooze from the hops and yeast signature.
-The finish evokes gentle wild yeast greenness alongside herbal hop bitterness.
-Drinkability is through the roof.
-All flavors are soooo well balanced and harmonious.

Bottle shared by Dan. Thank you. Aroma is rubber ball, grass, pepper, and barnyard. Pours blonde with a big fizzy and frothy head. Taste is funky and wonderful with pepper, bandaid, barnyard, grass, and bread. This is as close as I’ve had to a perfect saison. This should be the model that all others should base theirs.

Very freaking good! Amazing saison aroma and taste! Hazy golden color with a dry mouth. Tastes like a super dry and crisp classic saison!
