2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at brewery. Light pepper in the nose followed by a punch of medicinal notes that dominate the flavor as well. Some alcohol warming noted as well.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Orange hued golden, pale haze, moderate sudsy white head, sparce lacing.   Somewhat of a musty barnish nose, not too floral tho.   Sweet musty hay and straw on the tongue.   Pale fruitiness.   Not
heavy, but not too bright either.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Tiz okay, but not as floral or bright as others.   Thankfully not a bready example like so many other American versions.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from the bottle that was picked up at Apple Hill. Aroma is slightly sour malt. flavour is very typical of what I expect a farmhouse to be, how ever it finishes very sweet. thin lacing on glass, cloudy straw colour. Palate is thin and very easy to drink, @ 6.7% this is very easy to drink.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
08-Mar-12 (12-oz bottle)
Not sure what kind of farmhouse ale tastes like corn and spent grains, but that’s what this brewery is calling this beer. Some coconut and spices in the flavor too, but the flavor of grain husks is overpowering. The nose is sweet and honey-like, but also quite husky in character. Medium in weight and carbonation, but the huskiness contributes a dusty astringency on the palate. Very hazy in appearance, golden in color, and capped by a short, off-white head that settles to a thin ring. Not enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A hazy straw colored pour with a two finger white head that quickly disappears.Aroma of belgian yeast funk,spicy and fruity,some very nice clove scent some peppercorn,citrus zest A slight fruitiness,with some hints at banana.
The flavor is close to the aroma,yeasty funk all the way,earthy,slight fruit and pepper notes,lemon zest and a touch of grass,some nice light pale malt flavor with just a dash of alcohol. Medium body with lively carbonation,nice dry/lasting finish with a lingering spice aftertaste.
A very nice brew,I would buy this often if I could get it locally.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(12 oz btl) Frothy white head fully diminishes w/ no lacing; cloudy straw color. Strong clove and citrus peel in nose w/ little to no malt. Lively carbonation adds to sharp tang of clove w/ little other noticeable character - slightly astringent. Aftertaste is almost entirely clove; yeast is barely detectable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
~Pours a cloudy light golden color with big fluffy white head. (In tulip glass)
~Spicy clove scent with some coriander and apple.
~Spicy fruity flavor, just like an Abbey ale, but with more wheat.
~A light crisp feel finished with a sharp dry spicy finish.
~ I thought this was a really good brew. Not sure why all the bad ratings. I think I may have gotten a fresh batch since it was bought from the brewery. Very nice.

From a 12 oz bottle this poured gp;d with a very light haze, small white head, and a small amount of lacing. Nose of caramel malts and fruit. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is citrus and light malts. Not much finish. Really easy to drink however.

1.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
WOW!! Calling this a saison is REALLY stretching the definition. Aroma was a bit weak. LIght fruit and a hint of light malt. Pour was ugly. Looked like toilet water that has been clogged for a day. Taste was dreadful and near drainpour. Extremely sweet and sugary with a iced tea aftertaste. The only thing that comes to mind is this beer is a clown. It’s laughable and mocks real saison.
