3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Hazed, light yellow body, a few floaties in there from pulling on the lees. Tall, lasting, white head.
Smell: Soft aroma of flowers, light dusting of spice. Modest, restrained maltiness. Thin vein of fruity chewing gum. Mild nose, but, the long-lasting, pile of foam on top could be hampering this deal.
Taste: Pils and crisp, lightly grainy pale malted barley. Slender sweetness as it’s fastly drying. Spicy phenols, light herbal hints. Lemony accents trailed by orchard fruits. Hint of gum. A bit of bitterness creeping in. Well-carbonated, dry finish.
Mouthfeel: Just squeaks past medium-bodied. Medium-plus, foaming carbonation.
Overall: Above-average; a nice, competent farmhouse ale.

Not going to knock a lot of imports off the shelves, but very admirable beer with nice complexity and what I perhaps enjoyed most was the dryness rather than cloying sweetness found in too many attempts at "Belgian" style> Purty darn good>

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Central Market, 10/1/13
Aroma: The nose is yeasty and a little funky, pepper/spice, and some fruity notes as well
Appearance: It pours an unclear orange color with a thin white head and light lace
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet, mostly yeasty and spicy, with some earthiness as well
Palate: The body is medium, it has a tingly feel, and a clean, dry finish on the mouth
Thought this one was a fairly impressive example of the style. The spice and yeast dominate, but there’s some other stuff going on here too. It lives up to the promises of the description.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the Ginger Man, Austin, TX.
Slightly cloudy golden colour with a small white head.
Belgian yeast, spices and wheat (?)
The flavour is bitterish hops, malt, some alcohol, yeast and mild spices. A bit too American to be a great Saison.

On tap. Has a bit of an herbal candy tone to the taste. Not offensive, just unexpected.

Beer pours mostly clear golden color with a huge off white head that is totally retained. Aroma is right for the style with lots of fruity esters and some earth. Taste is sweet with light bitterness in the finish. Not revolutionary, but a solid effort from a emerging brewery!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours gold, enormous pillowy white head that leaves quite a bit of nice lacing. Lots of esters, caramel, bread, apricot in the nose. Very sweet, maybe even too sweet. Lots of fruit in the flavor as well. Medium body and ample carbonation that’s tingly without feeling like soda water.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Pours slightly cloudy and dark yellow with lots of carbonation bubbles. Small white head. Nose is yeasty, musty, lemony. Taste is very lemony, slightly sweet, light yeastiness, some mustiness and horseblanket. A little viscous and cloying but not overwhelming. Surprisingly decent farmhouse beer.
