Thanks to TNT for the bottle. Light body with a bit of grain. Heavy pepper and phenols in the nose. A bit of booze comes through in the flavor. Crisp and dry.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the Midwest Belgian Beer Fest 2012 - pours clear-ish yellow with a white head. The aroma has earthy yeast, rich malt and Belgian yeast fruitiness. It has a medium / full body with a mild amount of soft carbonation. The flavor starts a bit warm with earthy mushy maltiness along with the aroma traits. The finish is earthier and shows more alcohol presence than I’d like. Okay saison.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange-tan, tulip glass. Dry lemon pepper aroma. Dry and sweet, with some underlying funkiness. Captures the style well, maybe leaning a little to the sweet side. Some twisted melon notes. A nice Saison, but not as nice as I remembered it being the first time. Quite peppery, yet sugary. OK.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle from Treasure Island foods, Hyde Park, Chicago. Pours a hazy golden color with small white head. Aroma is full of yeast, apricot, cloves, grass, and something from a barnyard. Taste is sweet at first, then spicy, and finally driy. Medium body with enough carbonation to keep the mouthfeel lively. A very good saison, made in the warehouse where I worked for 6 years (it was a computer recycling center before it became a brewery).

On tap at the brewpub. Very floral. Some spice and banana flavor. White head with some very nice lacing. A little too sweet for me on this, but some interesting flavors.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Has huge over powering banana/clove with spice scents. Taste is rather fruity and spicy, rather dry finish, not a fan.
