At first this beer tasted terrible. But then it grew on me a little bit. With each sip, it got a tad bit better and better. I guess I just needed to wash out what ever flavors was in my mouth. This clear golden ale has a earthy dry taste. Its got alot of carbonation, so the bubbles stay for longer than I had expected. It has a slight dry yeasty flavor on the back end. I didn’t taste any fruity or citrus flavors at all like alot of people described. Not the best of Saison ales that I have tried, but no where near the worst. I love this brewery so its hard for me not to recommend this to anyone. Give it a shot, because in not a huge saison ale drinker.

rondphoto (2088) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 14, 2014
@ Hyde Park Wine and Spirits / Cincinnati OH --- Cloudy light amber with a big 3" head that is slow to drop, bands of lace. Taste is a combination of sweet malt and floral hops. In the palate, a slight sour/sulfur taste is added to give it a distinctive European flavor. A full-bodied, but not heavy, brew that is a pleasure to drink.

Sampled at the brewpub. It poured a clear orange color with a white head. The aroma was of hops and yeast with a medium body and a slick texture with flat carbonation. The taste was bittersweet with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Nice.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a near clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of sweet light grains with a bit of Belgian yeast and light fruits. Flavor is similar with sweet light earthy fruits, sweet grains and a nice Belgian yeast.

TheEnemy (562) - Chicago, USA - APR 7, 2010
On tap at the brewpub.
Pours a cloudy golden-orange with poofy white head forming at the top of the tulip glass. that leaves nice lacing in its wake. Aroma is spicy, herbal, and hoppy presumably from the dry-hop process -- a little out of character for the style. Flavor is crisp, big, and similarly herbal, spicy, meadow-y, and with quite a bit of hop bitterness -- not "IPA" bitter, but a lot more so than one would expect from the style. A light dose of sweet malt floats around in there somewhere. Medium-to-solid mouthfeel with a lightly sweet but mostly herbal-hoppy aftertaste. Interesting but I’m not sure I’d order it again; it was a little to hop-aggressive for me and IMO that element didn’t mesh well with the otherwise soft and gentle flavors of a saison.

thegreenrooster (3241) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Pour is a murky tan with a large white head. Aroma is very fruity with some yeast and hops. Flavor starts out with very spicy hops and follows with a bit of lemon grass. Finish is a bit dry and thin. The beer is decent and has plenty to offer just nothing over the top.

BeerandBlues2 (9839) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Tap. Pours lightly hazy orange with a medium, fizzy white head, short retention and light lacing. Aroma is medium malt (straw, toast, meal), earthy hops, light fruity esters, and barnyard notes. Flavor is malty, bright fruits and hops, and earthy/barnyard. Light body, low warmth, medium carbonation and a dry finish.

hombrepalo (1833) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Pint pour int a plastic cup at the grand opening. Pours light hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is honey and tropical fruit, with sweet agave nectar. Drier taste, with apple juice, white grape, honey and a mineral and yeast finish. Smooth and lightly slick in the mouth.
