UPDATED: AUG 8, 2012 lovely dark yellow with a great head, delicious spicy aroma, although the taste is not what I was expecting. Rerate love the subtle funk, with the fairly weighty body itís just a great easy drinking characterful beer. Cheap too!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2009 Bottle, date stamped "LO6006A" Yep, a big horsey and brett smell. Cloudy yellow, with a crisp head. Actually, I think itís a nice clean taste to start. Light pilsner type malts. Still a pretty young bottle, I popped it now and was rewarded with some nice sharp hop notes. Initial smell drops out as it warms, leading to a bit of lemony zest. Rounded out with pear and dry wine. A bit too fizzy, but thoroughly enjoyable.

(750 ml bottle (2005) from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/maine/augusta/l target=blank>Louís Beverage Barn) Light and peppery, refreshing...Pours cloudy golden yellow with a big, fluffy, very rocky white head. Bubbly like champagne, esp. on first pour. Aroma is banana, clove and yeast. Mouthfeel is softly effervescent and light. Big globs of meringue-like lacing inside of glass. Flavor is light banana and citrus with light pepper overlaying and lasting into finish. Nice flavor, esp. the pepperiness.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I donít know if I got a skunded bottle or what! Aroma of skunk, citrus, wheat. Pours a a generous froathy white head and has a medium dark yellow body. Flavor is starts off with clove, wheat, malt, and has a very acidic, bitter aftertaste. WTF! I was expecting more of this highly rated brew

Pours golden with thick, white, creamy head. Very skunky, but can detect a bit of straw and spice. Bright citrus flavor up front with significant honey flavors; finishes dry like a pils. Medium body. Quite good once you get past the skunk.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy pale straw colored pour with an abundant foamy white head that leaves nice lacing on glass. Nose is tart citrus like lemons. Light refreshing palate. Taste is astringent, tart and tangy with a dry finish. This is only the fifth Saison Iíve had, but itís the first one that Iíve really liked.
