3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very hazy yellow with a nice head. Aroma is very grassy and floral, with some citrus notes as well. Taste is floral and sweet. Contains grapefruit, lemon, and wheat. Finish is dry and sweet. Goes down very easy, making this a little surprising that it is this potent. Another review of mine of a Great Divide product that has left me very pleased.

Colette has an unexpected sequence of layers: it pours a foggy yellow, puts off a funky smell, provides a black licorice taste, and then finishes with a fruit-infused kicker. I liked the small surprise of each step along the way, even though I usually don’t care for black licorice.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
From the pour it produces a big billowy head of white foam over a hazy golden honey colored body. The haze comes from a fine yeast sediment in the body of the beer. Some of the yeast seems to be pushed up towards the head by the aggressive carbonation. This beer looks to be full of life. The aroma is of floral and spicy almost grassy hops with a pale base of biscuity malt. There is a nice balance of spicy yeast with hints of fruit and biscuity maltiness. This has light sweetness that dries out for a snappy dry finish. The carbonation is lively and the palate is crisp.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle. Pours a hazy gold. Its definitely a saison. Nose is yeasty sweet with light spiciness and lots of grassy, hay filled lemon notes. A somewhat off putting cleanser note is also present. Flavor has a great fruity light spicy flavor. Modest sweetness. Missing the spicy profile of the best saisons. A pretty solid effort from a pretty solid american brewery.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Serving glass: Poured from bottle into chalice.
Appearance: Pale, hazy yellow with rapidly vanishing head that does not leave much behind.
Aroma: Sweet with candi sugar and banana. Very light clove and white pepper.
Taste: Fairly sweet taste as well, with a focus on banana, some tropical fruit, sugar and light wheat and rice. Finish dries up somewhat with light clove and spiciness.
Palate: Moderate carbonation, medium body. Not quite as dry or effervescent as desired in a really good Saison.
Overall: Some nice flavors here, but hampered slightly by the mouthfeel. Great Divide makes some great American/English ales, but they have yet to prove to me that they can make an excellent Belgian brew, although this is damn close. Quite enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Initial lemon aroma with a good bit of farmhouse funk to follow. Pour is quite yellow, small white head. Taste is tart lemon, little spice, little funk. Very refreshing, not a long finish. Very good beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cloudy yellow color with a small white head.
Yeasty nose, with some funk, tart lemon peel and faint hops.
Citrusy sweet flavors, tartness, earth, some vommit and low bitterness.
Not balanced, not very impressive and hard to drink.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very middling Saison. Not enough earthy seasoning for me. Pours hazy yellow with less than expected head. Scent is grass and nutmeg. Tastes is not well balanced between spice, bitter, and sweet. Medium and undercarbonated. Blah. Draft - Manuel’s Tavern - Atlanta, GA
