3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle I picked up at the pig. Pours a cloudy amber color with a small white head that has good retention. The aroma is slightly spicy with white pepper and some fruity grains(Belgian Pils?). The flavor is complex and features white fruits, pears, apples and apricots giving way to peppery hops and nutty yeasts. Somewhere in there is a bit of biscuit. The palate is medium with lively carbonation. Finishes incredibly long and dry with lingering pepper. Overall: Wow, xcellent saison, I loved it.

So, it is kind of a big complex big yeasty flavored thing and kind of a not complex sweet very fizzy thing. Fruitiness in either case, not sure if it was rather good or not so good. Serving: Bottle

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber with a creamy off-white head. Slightly sour fruity aroma. A pungent spicy kick to the flavor with a perfumy aromatic character that is unique, but not necessarily pleasant. Lacks the tart brightness of a good farmhouse ale. Too highly carbonated.

I didn’t think this beer was too complex. A lot of flavors kind of blended together. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very very mediocre farmhouse. Still easy drinking and refreshing, and there is something to be said for that.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Chancery in Mequon. Pours orangey brown with little head and leaving little lacing. Aroma has some floral fruit and some earthy old beer store. Taste is of spice, including some coriander, and some citrus fruit with straw. Finishes fairly quickly and dry. An easy drinker on a hot day and about what I was expecting as a "saison". More earthy than I would have hoped.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle pours an almost clear red/amber with moderate white head and some lacing. Aroma has banana, spices, rye, and vanilla. Body is medium with average carbonation and a lively mouthfeel. Easily drinkable with nothing wrong, but far from one of the great saisons.
