Bottle from the release. Pours with a massive head, lightly cloudy, golden color, a slightly different/darker shade than normal likely due to the honey. Nose is herbal and loaded with fresh cut grass. White pepper puncuates kumquats and a warm sea breeze. Extremely drying in the mouth, what is left of the honey is merely the suggestion of farm fresh product. The dandelions show up in the form of a mild astringency that I find they bring to most beers. An interesting but challenging beer, with the dry astringency being almost overwhelming on larger sips.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Alexey. Cloudy yellow with a big white head. Lovely funky aroma full of fruits, some flowers and sweaty notes. Funky flavor, sourish, fruity and floral with a slightly bitter finish. Medium-bodied, lively carbonation. Great.

Bottle 2014 vintage. Pours a beautiful sunny gold with huge white head. Aroma is lemony, light bugs, very floral and honey. Taste is citric tartness, brett and lemon rind. Light bodied and lively carbed. Not the most complex batch Iíve had, but a good saison nonetheless.

Taste is dry, light sour and light bitter with notes of lemon peel, white pepper, light barnyard and dandelions. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Really good and balanced. Bright.

Bottle @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. T. Hanks, Biebers. Hazy golden straw pour with a big white head. Super floral and citrusy aroma. Great lemon zest, cracker, and yeast. Subtle spice. Damn, this is good. Mild tartness and acidity that works well with the dry, pale malt base. Wheat crackers, yeast, and lots of flowers. Good lemon zest and subtle grapefruit. Great stuff.

From a bottle at the RBSG grand tasting, Thanks Beibers!
Pours a pale color with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is fruity and lemony, earthy & floral with some hay and light spice. Itís funky but very softly funky.

The flavor is dry with a nice bitterness. Itís lemony but only lightly tart. Itís got a nice floral bitter character that I assume is where the dandelions step in. There is some light bubblegum lingering in the background.

The beer is lively and champagne like on the palate.

way cool.


PS, this is my 100th Saison rating... whoop di doo!

Shared at RBSG 2014. Thanks Biebers. Nose is funky and a barnyard hay. Pour is a hazy yellow. Taste is a tart and puckering hay and floral blend. A Ron of carbonation. Solid but would like it a bit more tame.
