3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle from a Great Divide variety pack. I will be honest here... I was a bit skeptical of a US born saison but I am happy to say that this was very enjoyable. I had this on a hot summer day while grilling outside with my family. Pours a hazy golden color with yeast floating through the beer and has a huge white bubbly head. The aroma was very pleasant for a hot summer day... it consisted of some fresh yeast, possibly some coriander, and some very light citrus fruits. The taste had some form of fruit tartness to it (possibly cherry) with some nice hints of a Belgian ale. Overall, a very enjoyable brew on a hot day. Great Divide impresses me again!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. can, consumed on 8-30-15. Pours a grainy, hay-like dirty gold with a large amount of cream-colored to light taupe head. Mostly clear with some haze. Very pleasant, floral, grassy, classic saison aroma explodes from the pour. Wheaten, hefeweizen-like flavor but stronger and better than a typical hefeweizen. Vanilla and cinnamon-like wheaten spiciness. Light hoppy dryness in the finish. A touch of booze. Tasty! Medium body. Frothy and smooth. Lively enough in the palate. I’m pleasantly surprised by just how good this is. I shouldn’t be, because Great Divide has been churning out well above average beer for a long time by craft brewing standards. This is an underrated saison here on RateBeer. Refreshing summer beer. The aroma and the flavor on this one are well above par.

Poured from a bottle. Faint banana and a bunch of cereal and wheat in the nose and flavor. Nice grassy notes and grain throughout the course of the beer. Golden hay hue with moderate head and lacing.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
foggy yellow, big rocky white head, nose is tart belg yeast, sweet maltose, belg tripel flavor... i understand that nobody in the us wants to fugg with brett in the brew house, but why claim "farmhouse ale"? Seems stupid to me, i mean i know a lot of breweries do this - to the point that i avoid "farmhouse ales" even though I actually love a real, true farmhouse ales. Out of respect for the style, I will slaughter all fake saisons.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can that pours a cloudy yellow with white head. Traditional farmhouse aroma a little funk a little grassy and a little malty. Flavor has some banana and more of the aromas in it. Basic farmhouse ale nothing to great but not bad either.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2015 Veldig god øl, bra smak uten å få en overdøvende smak av alkoholprosenten. Verdt å prøve

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg. Hazy yellow gold and a thick off white head. Nose is like hay and straw steeped in marzipan. More marzipan in the mouth with some banana leaves. Drinks really nice and belies its ABV.
