2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft @ brew pub. Shaker shows a mostly clear amber color with good retention. Nose is lots of spice and mild yeast. The flavor is over the top spice with the before mentioned yeast. Texture is extremely dry, so dry that it gives a cotton mouth feel. Not the best that this brew master has come up with.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Milly’s Tavern during a poetry slam open mike night. The color is copper orange with a foamy, silky head that lingers on. There was plenty of aroma such as nectarines, malts and I think their "secret spices" included Rosemary. The body is creamy, smooth, and around medium. Pale malts lead the tasting experience with a moderate bitterness at the end. I thought it was decent enough and I would have it again.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A lightly hazed golden amber saison with a thin white head. A very perfumey aroma of sandal wood, light phenolics, interesting. In mouth, a good oily malt base with some lavanders notes, a bit of astringence, but overall pleasant. On tap at the brewpub, April 5, 2010.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
In short: A lame amateurish spicy beer of some kind. Not much of a Saison.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear golden blonde topped by a an off-white ring of foam
In long: Nose has some oranges and a strange array of spices. Taste is dominated by and aggressive spiciness. I didn’t pick up any wild yeast character in this beer. Taste is a mix is mineral water, dried fruits, overripe fruits. too much spices and some garbage juice. The finish feels dry and dusty. More than just the taste, the body has a mineral water mouthfeel. A strange beast that is mostly off. I did not finish my pint. I suspect (hope for them) that they fucked up that particular batch because this was lame and not even remotely a Saison. That’s one small pint of bad beer for me, one giant batch of bad beer for Milly’s Tavern.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden pour with a one finger offwhite head that disspiates into a veneer. Aroma is spicy clove and banana esters, toasty malt, lemon, and coriander. Flavor has a nice light dry wheat note with lots of spicy clove, lemon acidity, orange, banana, tropical fruit, and dry spicy dough. Palate is full for the style with a slippery, dry finish and medium carbonation. A tad on the darker side for the style, contributing to an excellent fullness in the body and a nice balancing malt sweetness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Completely new saison by current brewer, using Belgian Y-yeast. Unfiltered, soft mouthfeel. White pepper and cardemon give it an edginess. Light colour and you can see the carbonation bubbles.
