Solidly above-average Belgian IPA type thing with nice sweet green fruits (kinda made me think of pears) and good yeast spice elements. Very impressive, especially for the price.

22oz bottle poured into St. Augustine chalice. I think this was bottled about 6 months ago. I only got this beer because I am ticking Pike (and I sort of, kind of, mmmmm, like Pike). I have been putting off drinking it because of the uninspired (and sweet) Tripel. The beer pours a dark golden color, completely clear through out (read: filtered). Aroma surprises me by NOT being overly estery or sweet. WOoooo!!!! Aroma is bitter, dough, faint sweetness, grainy character, a little candi crust. Flavor has no bubblegum or banana. Lots of good bitterness and herbalness in the flavor. Not sweet but strong bitterness and thick bread malt. A little light lemony character at the end of the flavor. Really surprising and I like it.

malrubius (1865) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle from total Wine. Pale hazy copper with lasting head and lace. Floral fruity lemon pastry aroma. Medium tropical fruit sweetness with spicy peppery citrus bitterness and very dry finish. Soft carbo and light body. This beer was made for my personal tastes. Wicked fuckin excellent.

Overall: a nice, drinkable beer. Delivers on the naming of the beer - saison with hoppy characteristics.

chicowv (465) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2014
650mL: pours hazy golden with a huge white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, musty, citrus. Taste is equally balanced with bitter and sweet. Flavors of Belgian yeast, mango, clove, and slightly grassy. Lots of flavors slightly more sweet than other saisons I have tried. Smooth, easy to drink, good mouthful. Fun beer, very strong.

raradel (342) - Atlanti Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Great nose and palate. Smells and taste like an IPA more than a Saison. Bitter and floral, very frothy, solid.

jefcon (1426) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Very active white head rises from the glass. Aromatics of lemon, thyme, fresh pit fruit, and a little bit of pine. Fresh-tasting, with a medium finish and a bit sticky mouthfeel. Not too reminiscent of a saison.

JDBaker11058 (1366) - Maryland, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Appearance: clear bright gold into a chalice; huge, thick, frothy bright white head, with giant swathes of lace and hyperactive carbonation jets--itís a pretty beer. Aroma: strong nose of kaffir lime, lemon zest, tangerine, apricot, with an undertone of light cracker, pie crust, and a hint of funk. Taste: hugely bitter, with muddled and musty hops overpowering all other flavors; itís a mess, but Iím getting lime, pineapple, some pine, pickle juice (!?) and a lot of dust. Finish: lingering bitter must that dries my mouth to an insane degree. Notes: Wow. Looked so pretty to start with, and smelled ok, but itís like someone took a basic saison and indescriminately dumped bag after bag of homebrewerís hops into it with no rhyme or reason. I despised this beer.

Bottle. Pours a golden color with white head. Malty, yeasty, dusty, citrus flavors. Pretty decent.

andrewje41 (680) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Draft pour. Pours a dark gold with a unique sour apple aroma for a saison. Light ape flavor with some spice. A unique saison overall. Not bad, but definitely not what I expected. Pretty good.

adnielsen (9481) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle @ Jonís place on the 4th. Pours a cloudy yellow orange with a creamy off white head. Aroma has slightly dank, piney hops in the nose with fruity yeast, tropical fruit, and orange citrus. A touch tart. Slightly earthy, bitter hoppy flavor. Bready yeast. Lemon citrus. Fairly high bitterness. Kind of interesting but could use some work.
