750ml. Amber color with large white head that lasts. Has a nice aroma to it. It says farmhouse ale on the bottle but didn’t have as powerful a smell or taste as other farmhouse Saisons I’ve enjoyed. I enjoyed it but it seemed to have a matte flavor in there that I wish was replaced by possibly some sweetness or funkiness.

Fruity, hoppy and fresh. Golden with big white head. Floral feel to it, quite yeasty. .

Mutualaid (142) - Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2008
Pours amber with a huge white, seafoam head. Intense aromas of white wine and straw with a hefe-like fruitiness accented by an herbal hop bouquet. Big honey-malt flavors up front, but sweetness gives way immediately to an almost lambic tartness that leaves an overall dry, tingly sensation. Medium bodied. Long, long tangy, if overly thin finish.

AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Pours hazy pale yellow with finger thick off white head. The nose is yeast and fruit. The flavor is more of the yeast, dominantly yeast, with a clean dry finish.

i think this is very nice--a dry and bit tart overall with a great balance among its ingredients; this reminds me of orval; i think it is more like a typical belgian ale (i.e., it is like orval) not a saison--it could use more juicy fruits and more potent herbs, but as a beer it is still great.

Sampled at Jans Saison tasting! Thanks! Appearance: Clear yellow, small grey head, little carbonation. Aroma: Slight sour aroma, fruit there too. Flavour: Peppery, spicey, malty all at once! Super refreshing

Hazy golden amber with nice frothy white head. Layered fruity and yeasty notes comprise the elegant and sugary/syrupy nature of the aroma. The thick bodied and dusty flavors comprise a tasty and decent offering of the style. Not bad.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2008
Slightly cloudy well carbonated with lofty fine white head. Citrusy sourness with wheaty and belgian yeast aroma. Spicey peppery yeast phenolics especially clove in flavor with nice citrusy overtones.

Butters (4039) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 21, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2009 Shared with Maniac and MaltDawg. Re-tasted with barrios courtesy of sixfootsix. Pours a murky dirty gold with large white head. Nose of clove, lemon, pepper, and a sour note, and a white wine. Tastes not as *farmhouse* as i normally expect in a saison. Flavor of white grapes and other citrus. Alcohol is evident but not overpowering.

rickgordon (3851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2008
Bottled. Pale orange colour with big creamy head. Big spicy aroma, with citric pale maltiness and good fruity esters from tropical fruits. Spices add complexity here as always with Saison, that goes well with the pale malts. It feels a bit sweeter than the average Saison, but that’s just a side note. Very good beer here.
