Very mild for a saison. Not much yeasty, funk, or floral character. A bit more of a tea undertaste. Not bad, and easily drinkable.

Very hazy amber beer. Small white head. Strong caramel nose. Light crisp palate. Strong butterscotch and caramel. A trace of citrus hop. Finishes dry. Very odd. Way too much butterscotch - diacetyl? Or some weird yeast?

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - DEC 23, 2011
12oz bottle picked up at the brewpub. 2011 Summer Solstice. Pours a cloudy, orange-gold colored body with a finger-width, frothy and fizzy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is fairly sweetly malted with some florals and a bit of a tart citrus and apple. Some bready caramels and a bit of a honey sweetness. Flavor is very sweet again with a more distinct, fruity tartness...and none of it seems to balance very well. Caramel and honey bread, tart apples and lemons, a bit of a coriander spice, and a yeasty twang. Finishes dry with a light, spicy bitterness and an odd mix of sweet malts and tart fruits. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a fizzy carbonation. Overall, another disappointing bottle from these guys. I loved the beers I had on tap at the brewpub, but these summer solstice bottles just arenít very good. This isnít absolutely terrible, but itís not that good.

12oz Bottle. Thanks for sharing, Sean. Aroma has an aged malt component. Flavors are kind of messy. Some indiscriminate spice and wet cardboard. Thereís even the charaterisitc Kuhnhenn twang thatís oh so unfortunately familiar. In some ways, this is like the trans-Atlantic notion of Fantome, but without a pop. One-dimensional. Thereís some definite cooked corn in here. Really feels like sloppy brewing. Bad DMS problem, bad beer.

j12601 (6863) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Bottle at Jamesí mead tasting. Pours a clear golden orange with a thin white head. Old malt and a touch of sweetness. A bit of age and oxidization. Sweet and toasty, slight sour touches around the edges. Sweet malt on the finish.

Thanks to Jale for picking this up for me at Summer Solstice, 2011 bottle... pours a bright and clear dark gold, bright white head with a great ring and lace, looks great... the nose has lots of sweet malt and alcohol on the end, a bit of floral musk but pretty muted, this could use some work... the taste is super sweet and alcohol too, doesnít really taste like a saison at all... disappointed in this one

Couple year old bottle shared by the Kuhnhenn brothers. Cloudy pale body with a large white head. Perfume and flowers in the nose along with dough, cotton candy and a touch of honey. The taste is light to moderately sweet, lightly bitter with herbal/floral hops, cotton candy and pears; Just a touch of oxidation, but it goes well with the dusty yeast. Medium body is very soft with moderate carbonation.
