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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lemon yellow pour, hazy, decent frothy head. Funky yeast and a basket of lightly toasted grain. Sweet on the tongue. Doughy through the middle, sweet fruit, light hops. Little thin for the style for my tastes.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a tulip glass. Information on the bottle includes a short description of the beer, a "Bottled On" date and the abv% (7.3).
Appearance: 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.
Smell: The aroma is of floral and spicy almost grassy hops with a pale base of biscuity malt.
Taste/Palate: 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.
Notes: Great Divide Is right on with very tasty farmhouse ale!!!

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle into tulip. Straw colored with floaties, highly carbonated, an endlessly morphing two finder head. Musky, spicy/floral aromas- I get yeast, cantaloupe, barnyard, violet, caramel, wet wool, metal shavings, sycamore tree… Flavor is much more crisp and fruity than I expected from the nose; sweetish, citric, chamomille and pepper, lychee, five spice. The palate is light, gassy, and sharp as ice shards. Kind of a Sprite and brettanomyces aftertaste. Leaves the tounge tingling. A complex and refreshing beer that is exemplary of the style. Even better than Saison Dupont.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright Saison, great for a spring ale for sure. The farmhouse floral is a touch fruity but with a wheat body.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottled on March 3, 2011: I poured rather gently a hazy and beautifully bright golden yellow beer with a small amount of off-white suds, which dissipated rather quickly. With barely a chill it smells of some sweet fruits like oranges or bananas, with a bit of an herbal note. After a couple of quaffs I taste mild citrusy sweet/sour up front. It then fades into some citrus rind bitterness while a solid, dry almost sourdough-y essence coats the palate. The carbonation is fairly soft, yet effervescent, seems to fade quickly. The abv seems pretty well hidden. Make no mistake, this is a full-on Belgian in a 12 oz. bottle. DELICIOUS Saison.
