Pretty solid saison. Could use more spice but still good. Wish it came in bombers. Don’t know if I drink saisons enough to want to buy 6 of them.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle - pours a cloudy golden color with a very foamy white head. Aroma of grass and light lemon in the nose. Flavor of grass, grain, spice, honey, lemon, and wheat without a lot of alcohol coming through (but at 7.3 it is certainly there - not quite a "session" beer but not too far from it). A nice, refreshing, enjoyable beer that was quite easy to drink.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pale golden / yellow with a sudsy white head. The aroma is quite spicy and yeasty with pepper, very light toast, floralness, smooth nectar fruit and zest. Medium crisp grainy body that is husky with flowing semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with the aroma traits along with some citrus and tartness. It is quite dry. The finish is crisp and refreshing with a touch of sourness and nice lively spice. I liked this one a lot more than I thought I would.

On tap at BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Hazy golden with a fine, lacing offwhite head. Lemony aroma, some leather notes. Brettanomyces in small proportions, but still noticeable. A nice one. Could be even more assertive.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the White Horse American Beer Festival, 2nd July 2010. Cloudy yellow with a sharp taste. Tart and refreshing. Lots of grapefruit, almost too much. So, so dry. A real palate cleanser! Great taste of limes and sour candy as you roll it round your mouth. Not sure it’s a true saison but it’s killer!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Piedmont, Durham. Very nice pour, earthy golden color with a vibrant carbonation and a lasting foamy head. Dry and bitter in the nose, with a hint of fruit zest tucked in for good measure. Full mouthfeel, prickly carbonation, and quite a dry finish. Spice, bready malts, a hint of lemon all blend together with the dominant grassy hop flavor. Not a world beater by any means, but enjoyable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy yellow color with a thin white head. Aroma of lemon, yeast, mild funk and starch (?). Flavor of lemon, yeast and starch. The body is light with an oily texture and moderate carbonation. It’s a decent saison, but I prefer Great Divide’s bigger, bolder beers.
