More defined, articulate and interesting than most saisons. Pleasant body with a meaty complexity.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a cloudy yellow color typical of a saison. Aroma is very floral with a tinge of sweet fruit. Taste is dry but mildly zesty, with a distinct floral aftertaste left on the palate. An easy drinking beer that disappears quickly but has some flavor attached. A decent saison...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle with no noticed date.
Appearance: Mildly hazy golden body with a dense white head that sticks around for a while.
Aroma: Mild aroma with lemon and yeast, pleasant.
Taste: Mild flavor that’s balanced between malts and citrus. Lemon and some spicy phenols match doughy malts with a mildly bitter lingering presence.
Palate: Full-bodied with light carbonation.
Overall: Solid saison, it’s easy to drink and would be a nice beer to drink during a nice breezy Spring day/

Nice yellow color. Yesaty aroma coming through with a hint of citrus. Flavor is bracingly bitter, with citrus notes and yeast coming through. Palate is bone dry. Very good example of an American Saison. Very enjoyable.

Lovely fresh and vibrant saison. Typically I am not a fan of the style but this got my attention with is lively yeast and spice characters. Refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lemony, spiced aroma. Clear golden in color with a slight sudsy white head. Balanced (not too dry or sweet) with a clean spiced and citrus peel character. I like this saison.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pours a tangerine orange color with a fleeting white head. Nose is mild, dry florals, yeast, and seemingly creamed corn. As it warms, the florals open up a bit and it has more of a spicey/lively floral smell. Potent florals in the taste; herbal and barnyard. Good yeast flavors and mild barnyard. A bit of fresh rye bread before finishing with a crisp floral and yeast flurry. Overall good, but not great offering of the Americanized saison.

First pour resulted in almost no head. Second pour, a very vigorous one, produced a nice fluffy white head atop a good looking sunflower color. Clean, clear look, very few active bubbles.
As a result if the weak head on this thing, the nose isn't very notable. Very very faint spice. Mainly fruity esters, a little citrus, and some grass. Smells closer to a tripel with there being almost no spice or funk.
Taste is fairly straightforward. Not a lot of complexity here. Lemon and dill are the major players. Enough carbonation on the mouthfeel despite lack of bubbles. There's some apple skin and faint saison yeast playing with the lemony herb flavor. Mild bitterness on the finish. No pepper, no phenols.
Actually feels pretty good on the mouth. Full light bodied, decent carbonation in the mouth.
Not a complex beer and not particularly representative of the saison style. The flavor is actually pretty good , though. And drinkable. Poor man's Pfriem Little Saison.
