Hazy light yellow pour with a white head. Nose is rather spice and herb forward. Lots of pepper, coriander, lemongrass, and rosemary. Some lemon, orange, and cracker malt. Dry flavor with some light Brett funk, leather, and grass. Lemongrass, lemon zest, pepper, coriander, and a bit of rosemary on the finish. Moderate orange, a bit of tartness, and a dry malt profile.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a light orange with a lasting layer of white powdery head. Lace mapping down the glass. Fruity, bretty, saison aromas. Above average mouthfeel.Very good tasting saison with blood orange ( a favourite as I can drink it and not ingest it solid owing to allergies).
A great saison, thanks Brian for hooking me up.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL thanks to my dad! Pours a full haze straw. Thick white head. Nose is funky, doughy, fresh, lemon bitters, some mild orange. Taste is a bit washed out, very little citrus, more doughy and spicy. Yeasty, rustic. Good stuff just no blood orange. Loved the nose.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by GT2: pours a slightly hazy pale golden with a stringy-lacing white head. Starts with good fullness and light carbonation with a mild funk and herbal grassy tartness. Starts with pretty good fullness and light carbonation with a mild sweetness and good herbal citrus and light funky complexity before a drier bittersweet finish.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
First to rate! 10/31/12. On tap at the brewery release... will also try a bottle sometime and update my rating. Hazy orange pour with a nice off-white head that sticks and laces plenty. The aroma is really nice, sporting an almost spicy herbal aspect (subtle rosemary mixed with the yeast, I suspect), a good brett dose, and a huge orange aspect. The flavor is awesomely tasty and refreshing, boasting a ton of orange, some subtle rosemary/herbal aspects, a nice tartness, and a hint of funk. As it warms, the rosemary/herbal aspect pokes through even more. This is some really good stuff!

750 ml bottle from drowland- thanks, Danny! Cork scared me based on "Saint Somewhere" being on the label. Put my hand over it, and it started to force out but didn’t blast across the city, as per usual. Pours a hazy, pale straw color with a small white head that settles into a ring. Aroma has tons of herbs, lemon (I thought it leaned more toward that than blood oranges), bretty funk, floral notes, straw, coriander, doughy malts- wow, I couldn’t stop bringing this up to my nose. Floral notes in the flavor, with lemon, herbs, dry grains, funk, and straw. Light-bodied, with a dry, funky, lightly tart mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Funky, zesty, complex, and tasty. Perfect for the summer season. Great collaboration.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by Mr drowland. It pours hazy golden with a thick white head. The nose is earthy, zesty orange, tangerine, mango, mild dough and faint herbal accents. The taste is smooth, earth, brett, hay, straw, white wine, zesty orange, light spice, minerals, candy and white grape skin with a dry finish. Medium+ body, moderate carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. Thankfully there is not too much rosemary! Nice body, depth and balance. Tasty.
