Bottled; my first saison. Hazy golden coloring with an aroma of cloves and fruits. The flavor was mostly orange with some light spice. A very enjoyable, easy-drinking high gravity beer.

Hazy, pale golden in colour. Substantial foamy white head, good retention. Aroma of straw, banana, estery, alcohol, clove. Taste of lemon, straw, some banana, lots of fruity-estery notes. Full bodied, with a creamy, coating mouthfeel. Lively carbonation and a long, lingering finish. Really quite nice.

Draft @ Aloft BUF. Slight flowery aroma. Clear golden color with thin white head that dissipates quickly. Nice, typical saison flavor (little peppery, etc). Little lighter than med bodied. Overall, a pretty good saison.

On tap at Ten 22. Pours a golden color with a bit of head. Lots of hops overpower a little, though the farmhouse yeast flavors seem very mild anyway.

From notes (Aug 2015). Effervescent, spicy, clean, and refreshing. It was a really good palate cleanser on a hot August day.

Originally rated on 7/17/08. Upon pouring a huge white foamy head that lasted longer than the beer, a very cloudy orangish- yellow fully carbonated body. Aroma was a little fruity, malty and mild spice. Flavor was similar but with a pronounced alcohol presence. A pretty decent brew.
