Pours a hazy yellow with little head. In the nose there is a little spice, a little funk and a little citrus; nothing is too present. Tastes are sweet citrus, a combination of spices and a bit of alcohol as well. On some sips I get a nice bready aftertaste. It is a great saison that comes in a six pack.

The color is a cloudy yellow with a minimal white head, and the aroma has a certain fruity sourness, much like white grape. The taste is slightly umami, slighly sweet, and mildly umami. Also, the palate combines a medium-light body, slick texture, average carbonation, and a long finish.

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. First saison I ever tried. Very light and refreshing. Could benefit from a little funk perhaps.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2013 Hazy yellow, spicy smell, taste is smooth, spice, lemon peel. Refreshing and great summer beer. A little on the light side but a great beer for the masses.
Really like how refreshing this one is any lots of taste. Put this in cans and 6 packs I think most people would drink it.

Bottle from Five Points Bottle Shop (Atlanta Highway) in Athens. Pleasant juicy aroma, with some light citrus spritz. Cloudy light pear juice color. Initial is sweetish, lightly yeasty and barny / bits of lemon punch through in mid palate / final is mildly sweet. Refreshing stuff, but not very complex. Is this Great Divide’s first go at the style? Not great, but not bad. Doesn’t have the fresh kick or brightness of a really good one.

Pours a cloudy straw color with a slight head. Nose of lemon, spices and a hint of funkiness. Taste starts off with sweetness, then some spice, and finishes with a touch of bitterness. Haven't had this style much (the Sam Adams Saison is the only one I can remember), but this is interesting and good. Really like what is going on with Great Divide.

Bottle pour to tulip. Aroma is spicy pepper with hint of sugar. Taste is better, nice sweet saison with a dry finish. Good appearance. Great beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 This one is great! You’re in for a treat. Aroma is of citrus, a little funk, and dough (yeast notes). Pours a pale golden that’s clear with a white head. A slight sour tartness with lots of fruity, yeast attributes and a tiny bit of indistinguishable funk. Finishes dry and sweet. Nice!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aromas of banana, coriander and wheat. Appears a nice gold with no foam. Flavors of banana, citrus, light fruits and wheat. Finish leaves a subtle biscuit malt. Overall, nothing special. Just your average saison/wheat beer. I’d give this a B- rating.
