Lukaduke (2370) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Bottle thanks to JStax ! Pours a slightly hazy dull golden color with two fingers of fizzy foam. The nose is doughy with hints of grass, honey and wet grain. Palate follows and is a bit sweet for my liking. Round earthy buckwheat honey, stale grass, some lightly peppered yeast lingers.

JStax (3234) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle pour at the source. Pours a bright, hazy orange with a white head of foam. The aroma is lemony and grassy. The taste is fairly bitter and floral. Big body and medium carbonation. This is a good deal hoppier than I expected.

blklab2007 (2010) - Connecticut, USA - APR 22, 2014
Bottle poured an amber brown color with a thick one finger head that was very sturdy and retained well. Aroma has farmhouse yeast, esters, grains, mild malt, and dusty hops. Mouth feel is medium full and the carbonation on the high side. The yeast again in this one takes the front stage, barnyard, banana, esters, and light spice. The Saison underneath has a good size malt bill and there are pokes of aged hops. This is more like an imperial Saison and the sugar and alcohol play well with the yeast driven center.

JaBier (5011) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle sample at the Rockmill tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 3/27/14. Clear amber pour with a thick white head. Aroma of herbs, malt, lemon and Belgian yeast esters. Malty sweetness hits the tongue first, then herbs and citrus with a slight tartness before a sweet finish.

Dogbrick (8658) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Bottle at 101 Beer Kitchen. The beer pours a slightly hazy dark orange color with a thick and foamy white head that recedes slowly. Patches of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of yeast, fruit and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of grainy malt, caramel, herbal yeast and bananas. The finish is sweet with a fruity yeast aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

bluejacket74 (1383) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2014
750 ml caged and corked bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with about an inch and a half off-white head. The head stays around a long time, and there’s a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like bready malt, apricots, citrus peel, banana, Belgian yeast, and some floral hops. The taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also some earthiness and peppery spice noticeable. There’s a good sweet and spicy finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit creamy with moderate carbonation. I think it’s a good saison, another good beer from Rockmill.

phaleslu (6810) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2013
750 ml bottle shared by Toney99- thanks again, Tom! Pours a dull, hazy pale gold with a finger of white head. The aroma is floral, funky, and bready, with dried apricot and sugar. Flavor of florals, funk, sweet bread and dough, sugar, and mellow spice. Plenty of maltiness in here. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, malty, funky mouthfeel and low to moderate carbonation. Nice, big saison.

Tmoney99 (11070) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle. Poured hazy dark golden color with a large frothy white head that was lasting with excellent lacing. Heavy yeast, banana and citrus aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy blalanced complex sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Standout complex beer.

DrSilverworm (6944) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2013
750ml bottle, shared by Jay. Mildly hazy orange color. Minimal off-white head. Dots of lace. Awesome banana, citrus nose. Some belgian sugar, and an awesome, big yeast profile. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of creamy carbonation, with a lightly dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, with a light alcohol warmth, nothing at all hindering drinkability or taste. Light on the spice, relative to your typical American saison. Fantastic stuff.
