4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours gold with a large white head.
Nose shows herbal and citrus notes, sweet honey and saison yeast. Very inviting.
Very similar flavours; more honey, saison yeast, herbal/spicy hops and some grapefruit/orange peel. An assertive bitterness presents itself in the finish.
Great moderately high carbonation works perfectly.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light golden color with white head. Peppery aroma. Sharp bitterness at first and a bubbling bitterness stays on the tongue along with taste of herbs I cant identify. Good but a bit to long bitter aftertaste for my taste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 14, 2014 This beer pours pale straw qith plenty of fluffy white head that lasts the entire glass. Aroma is faint but pleasant. I wouldn’t drink this as a season, but it does have its place. The beer is light and flavorful.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Lemony with some light cheesecloth; coriander perhaps? Reminds me a little of Riesling with some minor vinous, floral properties. Appearance: Well carbonated bright, hazy gold with a sticky white head. Flavor: Lemon peel; light cheesecloth; floral, maybe a little gum and coriander; no real "barnyard" properties to speak of. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: A good American Saison, but I would’ve liked a little more barnyard character.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle; Pour is clear gold with a frothy, fine bubbled / yet modest head into this glass. Its sticky - and it retains on the average side here - The nose is floral, light herbal - modest grain presence with a hint of lemon. THe flavor profile is medium bodied, mild sweet - I thought it was lacking initial but it did grow on me a bit - peppery spices, grainy notes move to floral hops - Saison Americain is a good description for it, I suppose - Its a decent drinker but I don’t know if I would go out of my way for this
