3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2013 Bottle - Orange and Belgian yeast. Clear gold with a rich white head. Very yeasty as I would expect from a Belgian but a bit bland for saison.
Second tasting - as above but lots of honey notes.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle shared by Danny- thanks again! Pours a clear gold color with a white ring for a head. Notes of sweet malts, crackers, straw, apricot, and honey. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel. Reminds me more of a tripel than a saison, or at least the take on the style I really like.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber to snifter (thanks to whoever shared this one). Looks good for the style; a transparent orange with white head that dissipates into lacing fairly quickly. Smells doughy, yeasty, and spicy with a bit of citrus. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Solid beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My bottle [650ml] shared with HogTownHarry, jerc & mabel. Pours a hazy gold with little floaties and an average size lasting frothy white head. Aroma: I love it! Belgian yeast, herbs, light hops, spices and fruit. Flavour’s just as good: Dry, spicy, yeasty and fruity along with herbs and a hint of spice. Medium bodied. A great Saison!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2012-01-18. Crisp dark yellow with a small white head. 3+ Moderately alcoholic, lightly yeasty, Saison aroma, lightly funky, more nuanced than I am grasping at this point I suspect. 7++ Flavour is quite pleasant, dry but sort of fruity, modest yeasty funk, moderate bitterness throughout. 7++ Smooth average body. Dangerously drinkable, the alcohol is surprisingly restrained. Very nice. Bottle shared by Blankboy

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy golden orange with a large foamy head which disipates quickly. Fruity esters dominate the aroma, spices and herbs create a complex citrusy, yeasty Belgian flavor, medium bodied with high carbonation. This beer just kept tasting better and better, I should have gotten two!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle. Pours a light gold with medium persistent head. Aromas of lemons and yeast. Flavors of lemons and white pepper with light floral/grassy notes. Mild and crisp for this style of saison but very nice.
