22 oz. bomber, $10 at Square One, Chicagoís near South.Poured into a tall flute, it shows off a light amber or slightly orange body with thing layer of foam atop. Has a big malty smell with warming spices that Iím picking up at armís length while still wrestling with the menu. Taste is big malts with the expected esters of a warm ferment, The hop bitterness just slightly curls the edge of my tongue, and a note of fruit and funk thread through as well. Thereís a yeasty outline in the taste too, even before I swirl in the yeast dregs form the bottom of the bottle.

Draft, 8.1%. Cloudy apple cider body, small white head, nice lacing. Aroma is moderately sweet spicy, some pepper, light funk. Taste is moderately sweet, pepper, some spicy, funk, light sourness. Medium body, some effervescence. Too sweet -- took away from the saison qualities.

tmoreau (2843) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2012
On tap at the Bavarian Lodge in Lisle, IL., and served to house stemware showing a hazed, orangy gold color, modest, soft white head foam that reduced quickly to a ring & film, and left some light, wavy lacing on the glass. The nose was light yeast, mid-fruit as apricot/peach, citrus as orange, and light spiciness. The flavor presented soft malt, some alcohol warmth, a moderate, lingering hop bitterness, with earthy & peppery notes. The body was medium, with good effervescence, and pleasant dryness complemented the bitter finish. Spot on style interpretation.

Scipio (754) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Pours a golden with weaker white head. Aroma has orange, lemon, spices, and grass. Kind of has a bubblegumish impression as well. Taste is quite fruity and is powerful in the orange flavor. Still spicy and grassy while containing something else, I believe clove. Peppery as well. Rather strong aftertaste of oranges and lemon. Medium bodied with a thinner texture. On the sweeter side. Overall, Iím pretty happy with this.

22 oz bottle purchased from West Lakeview in Chicago. Poured a nice gold with minimal white head. A very nice spiciness in it, definitely not overwhelming but certainly delicious. I really liked this.

On tap at the brewpub. This was different than other saisons Iíve had. Didnít get much of the Belgian farmhouse funk. A bit more on the sweet side more Orange and tangerine than peppery spice. Still, not a bad one.
