3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013-01-18 - with blankboy, jercraigs & mabel - my bomber. Bubbly hazy gold with a huge lasting pillowy white head. Smells like a saison all right - floral, spicy, with a bit of tart tree fruit, quite grassy, almost berliner weiss-like with some lemon and lacto sourness as well - solid stuff. Taste is sweet, but follows, quite a bit of pear and a lot less grassiness and sourness - nice enough, but sweeter than I thought it would be based on the aroma. Fairly thick-bodied, solid carbonation, finishes quick and fruity, with a hint of dry grassiness - all in all a very nice saison and extremely easy to drink - pretty much zero alcohol presence.

Bottle @ Midsummer party 20140621. Aroma of citrus, pepper and a slight funkiness. Taste is spicy, oranges, grain. Very light bodied and refreshing. Could be argued that it is too bland, but I like it and consider it well worth the price.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aromas are pungent with hops, spice and malt sweetness. Taste is similar with too much body for my tastes. Spices and heavy malt/yeast is slightly abrasive on my palate. Drinkable as a beer, yes....but if I am looking for a Saison, I will pass this one by most likely.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear straw gold with two fingers of foamy white head diminishing gradually to a thin cap and spotty lacing. Nose is light, dominated by caramel malt, yeast with a little funk, orange peel and pepper. Taste follows suit, with an additional hint of coriander. Mouth feel is light with lasting carbonation and a building bitterness.
Not bad, but tends to the bland side. Not bland, as such, but tending that way. The malt presence is a little too dominant, and a little more citrus and pepper would be nice.

My favorite saison yet. A little watery, and had a soapy flavor, but isnt offensive like most.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Narrow, Green Flash 12oz bottle. Very active carbonation, beautiful cascading bubbles from center of glassware, increasing the size of a white billowing froth. Hazy dark yellow color. Dry nose, bready/airy character, distant hints of dried lemon peel. Dry, tastes of yeast esters, far away notes of milled grains, loads of straw/hay flavor. a very good beer it enjoy with a light summer salad. (4045)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Howler fill at Liquor Shed in Casper.
A hazy light gold pour that produced about an inch of foam but it never goes away. Lacing? Yep.
It smells some what spicy with some of that ginger, coriander, hint of pepper, and a dash of lemon or orange?
The taste matches the smell. Good gingery notes and oranges, The ginger gives me a little bit of heat when I swish the beer in my mouth. I donít really get any coriander but itís still a good tasting brew.
Light body and carbonation.
A pretty good Saison and the fact that itís only 4.2% abv is something I like aboot it. Yeah, the body does suffer but thereís no problem drinking the 32oz in one sitting.
