Bottle - Pours clear yellow with a thin white head. Nose is light clove, banana--had you told me this was a hefe, I might have believed you. Coriander, a touch of citrus, and a light, dry malt base. Tastes a lot the same--tons of hefe notes, with mineral dryness, white pepper, and a touch of tropical fruit on the finish. Man, not sure I buy this being a saison, but who cares--itís tasty!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pours a beautiful golden/straw color with a thin white head. Scents of florals, yeast, and cloves. Tastes light and crisp with florals, more yeast, and a little barnyard earthiness. Just a hint of dough... almost has some pilsener in it? Crisp finish. I love that it comes in 12oz bottles... perhaps something new for the summer rotation? Fun!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thin, poorly retained white head, over a hazy gold (SRM 4) body.....nose is cereal, hints of lemon, light pear.....taste is cereal, light lemon, hints of clove, finishing with a light bitterness.....mouth feel light of medium, minimal astringency, carbonation adds a light spritz and acidity to the finish. This falls well within this broad style. BJCP 7/2/13/4/7

Tap. Pours hazy golden yellow with a small white head and good lacing. Aroma is yeast, wheat and honey. Flavor is lightly sweet, with yeast notes more prominent than in aroma, plus apple and a bit of spice. Medium body, silky in the mouth, quite refreshing actually.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Shaker pour @ moto-i. This has been one of the most disappointing beers I have had in a while. It is a piss macro-yellow with a thick head. It is way too clear and way too light of a color. Aroma is banana esters and overly sweet Belgian aspects. Especially for a beer like this, its too light to be this sweet. Taste is too sweet, the esters are too strong for the rest of the beer as well. It has a strong mineral feel and an overly tingly carbonation. I feel something good can be made with this beer but this isnít it right now.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a semi-clear golden straw blonde brew with a slow dissolving white head that leaves behind a nice spotty lacing and a thin white ring. Bottle Aroma of yeast, a touch of banana esters, some light cloves, and a hint of white bread malt. Taste is light to medium bodied with some carbonation with flavors of dry white bread malt, banana esters, cloves a touch of bubblegum, and dry herbs. Finish is semi-dry with a fast disappearing herbal spice aftertaste. Remember to allow this saison to come up to room temperature to get the full flavor and aroma. Love this Saison

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.

Has a very light wheat/bread scent, and pours a light golden color. Has a nice Belgian taste to it. Very drinkable and would be good in the summer.
