Pours beautiful golden honey with a tall white head that lasts forever. Aroma is funky and earthy. Taste is funk and earthiness at first, with and little bit of acidity. This is smooth and drinkable for sure, but just not very complex.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on tap at Craft Beer Cellar in a snifter glass. It poured a hazy yellow colour with thin but persistent white foam, lots of fine Belgian lace. Definite Belgian yeast spice: banana, black pepper, clove, subtle bubble gum. Light body and crisp grainy mouthfeel, slight acidity. Very little hop presence initially but some bitterness creeps up with subsequent sips and into a long-lasting aftertaste. A tasty and true-to-style saison.

A hazed golden saison with a super thick and onctuous lacing white head. In aroma, nice herbaceous malt with grassy hops, bitter herbs, nice. In mouth, a sweet fruity malt with loads of berries, cranberry, light butterscotch, strawberry, cherries, light bodied, OK.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light straw pour with low fluffy head with spotty lacing. Nose is apples, banana esters, chamomile, Belgian yeasts and cloves. Medium body with a watery mf. Some light carb. The tastes follow the nose to a T, but with some honey, and doughy malts. Very little spices. Nice clean drinking saison that tends towards the sweet end of the spectrum.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From notes. Tasted on 6/5/13 on draft at the brewpub during a baseball trip with Adam and Taylor, and from bottle on several occasions. Pours hazy pale golden with a thick white head that leaves average, uneven lace. The nose is spicy saison yeast with a soft floral aroma and some earth. The flavor is in the same vein, a nicely soft saison with floral notes and nicely integrated yeast spice. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long floral, lightly spicy saison yeast finish.

Bottle: bright golden/orange with ample white fluffy bubbles, looks like champagne. Big aromas of lemon, chamomile, earthy barnyard funk. The flavor is the same. It finishes with a hint of black pepper and esters, somewhat acidic. The mouthfeel is medium, with just a touch of syrup, creamy

Overall a decent saison, but we've had better. Pours a bright yellow with a foamy head. Smells very good, herbs, bay leaf, citrus and lemon and chamomile. Taste is very floral to start with some rose and earthy notes. Overwhelmed a bit with lemon in the finish. Had in the bottle.
