Bomber into a tulip glass. High carbonation and a fluffy feel to the beer. Good hops with the yeasty taste.

750ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a one inch white head that lasts. Taste is of wheat, yeast, spice, banana, grapefruit, fruit, clove and citrus. Similar aroma. Has a nice body with a spicy and fruity finish. Lots of carbonation. Drinkable and rather enjoyable.

On tap at the brewery, this pours deep honey with an ivory soap head. The nose is of hay, grain and estery silage. Flavors of esters and grains with a finishing hint of alcohol. Medium-full bodied, it's a full take on the saison. Nice job.

750ml from the Rare Beer Club - thanks, Nina! Very handsome medium orange pour, faintest cloudiness and an initially buoyant head that backs off to crisp carbonation and moderate lacing. Soft and sweet nose, dry and hoppy but with some modest orange and spice notes deepening the appeal. Modest tart note crops up every so often in the taste, giving this a bit of character and complexity. But it’s mostly a dry, fairly hoppy saison with modest spice. Delivers big-time on simple pleasures.

750 ml. caged and corked bottle. Pours cloudy amber color with a white head. Aromas of malt, yeast, wheat, hay and lemon. A little tart on the finish, but very refreshing.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2013 750. Somewhat faint aroma that has a hint of sourness. Hazy yellow body with plenty of carbonation. Lemon notes. Having this right after Lucid Silo saison. Very similar. This one has more lemon, more alcohol and perhaps more of an authentic Belgian flavor. Very good but struggling a little to determine if its worth 4x the cost of Lucid Silo. Quite carbonated.

This is quite good! It’s more on the lemony, floral, yeast side of a saison. The clove and peppery nature is really faint. The carbonation is up there where you’d expect it. The finish is nice with no detectable flaws. Doesn’t have the funk of other saisons, but hey. Solid and drinkable...lotion, more lotion...your feet are like a prehistoric riverbed...

This was an okay saison though not the best offering from odell. Dry and floral with a subtle citrus and pepperiness.
