4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle courtesy of Sledutah. Used a snifter. Thick, full head with excellent retention. Nose is lemon and a touch of Barnyard. The taste is a myriad of flavors. Hops, lemon citrus, hay/ barnyard and some light malt to balance it. Complex, yet refreshing. Iím glad I didnít share this bottle with anybody. As soon as I finished the 1st glass, I ran to finish the bottle. An excellent Saison. I really think this is a creative version of this style. If you can trade for a bottle, do it! Many thanks go out to Craig on this one

Pours a fairly clear golden orange with a medium white head...nice retention and lacing! Aroma has citusy orange and pepper...lots of grapefruit. Flavor is grapefruity as well but less spicy...some cloviness and pepper but mild...herbal with a hint of orange peel. Mouthfeel is fairly light but a bit of creaminess...oats...finish is dry, spicy, and yeasty.

750ml bottle poured into snifter. This was exactly what a Florida boy needs. Aroma has a nice floral lemon thing going on. Flavor is a little watery with hints of lemon juice but it most certainly refeshes the palate. Outstanding!!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Sledutah, thanks!. Pours a lightly hazed gold with some orange at the middle. Fluffy white head that persists. The nose is nice. Lots of fruity esters, spice, light cardamom and coriander notes. Citrus is pretty dominant with some floral hopping as well. Nice nose. On taste, really well balanced with enough bitterness to keep it in check. firm malt backbone and dry finish. more of the citrus and cardamom notes come through. Really cool saison and quite tasty.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lightly hazy golden kinda lively w a smaller white head that has decent retention and lacing... Nice surprising hoppy aroma, some light peach notes fairly spicy with notable grassiness some faint licorice.... Touch herbal with notes of perhaps basil, sage... Light pepper, the grassiness is faintly present, but the fruits are masked... Smells great, wish it tasted like the smell... Medium to medium full bodied... Fairly dry finish...

2/24/12. 750mL bottle shared by thirdeye11. Clear copper pour with a small off-white head. Fruity, estery aroma with banana and sweet sugars. Sweet, floral flavor with a touch of plastic, dry yeast, and lingering sweetness. Not too shabby.
