It pours a dark orange color with a large off white head. The aroma does not indicate a Saison at all. Thereís some dull toffee, sweet over ripe fruit and a bit of spice. The flavor does have some Belgian yeast spice along with some notes of plum, apple and fig. The dominating sweetness is pretty simple and cloying. It reminds me a bit of circus peanuts or cotton candy. The finish almost saves it with a little balancing spice and rye malt. Not terrible, but pretty boring and simple. Iíll pass on this one.

Mostly clear orange with a thin whit head. Some malt, some citrus in the aroma, not much here really. Light sweetness at the start, some bitterness in the finish. Not very complex, but no faults either.

Pours clear light copper color with white head. Grainy and malty aroma. Sweet caramel and cereal malt flavors with some grassy hops. Medium body with average carbonation. OK, but not worth seeking out or having again.

From a bottle poured a straw color with a small amount of head. Bitter hoppy flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

Nice and sharp with a strong grainy taste. Itís flavor is quite different with a nice bite yet very drinkable. Hops are not too outstanding. The bite is coming from the malt and the rye

22oz bottle. Rating #10. Clear medium golden pour with a nice white head. Sweet apple aroma, very malty with a little rye spice. Light flavor, smooth eith a nice little rye spice, itís still a little too light for me. (1971)

Not much to this one...straw colored pour with a fluffy ivory head. Yeasty nose with mild pepper, lemongrass, and earthiness. Slightly hoppy with a smidge of citrus. Meh.

22oz bomber, no date for $8.49 at OB Quik Stop a couple days ago. Clear golden with a small off-white head, low retention down to a thick ring. Sweet rye as well as some fruity sweet yeast esters (overripe peach and banana) and a tinge of earth. No pepper notes so far. Flavor follows suit with overripe fruit and moderate earthy rye sweetness. I canít believe this is 8% ABV, masked incredibly well. Not a whole lot else going on, as far as I can tell. Dry finish, bitterness peaked at a 3-4. Medium body with light prickly carbonation. Didnít seem like a saison to me--more like an overestered Belgian ale with some sweet rye.

Bottle poured into glass. Light in color, goldish hue with a orange tint. Aroma is somewhat like cereal, a tad wheaty with slight hints of fruits. Not really all that exciting but a half way decent beer.
