2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy light gold with thin head disappearing, but carbonated enough for good mouthfeel and laces glass. Citrus aroma. Slight orange, banana phenolic spice flavor from yeast. Just a touch sweet. Good, and I like this better now that Iíve rated it.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a lightly hazed pale gold that eventually clears with a thin, short-lasting white head. Pleasant aroma of Belgian yeast, white sugar, and a bit of spice. The flavor is similar with some white sugar sweetness. Mild bitterness at the finish. Medium body. A bit sweeter than I think most people would prefer for a saison, but I was ok with it.

Bottle at Marx, Stillwater. Canít believe Iíve never rated this as Iíve had it a number of times. It was a favorite among beer aficionados and non during our groomís dinner in Stillwater a couple of days ago. Murky, light orange with a quickly dissipating head. An excellent, easy drinking saison. Most true to style beer Iíve had from Lift Bridge.

Quite enjoyed this spicy saison. Belgian yeast is very present, with tons of hay, sweet but dry malt, and and a great finish. Great for the patio.

Straw color. Tap. Nice floral aroma. Slight sweetness but good balance. Very good standby beer thatís easy to drink. Not girly, despite the name. Well maybe a little girly.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap pour in a pint glass at Moto-i. Little to no head or lacing for a very appealing beer in color. Epitomizes a saison with a grainy, bready initial taste followed by a slightly sweet end. Definitely no hint of bitter to be found. A pretty good option for a summer day.

Tap in Republic, Minneapolis. Wheaty, grainy, flat looking yellow in colour, a little sweet, good yeasty feel, quenching. Maybe not the most complex beer ever made but very refreshing.
