Orange color, very little head. Aroma is sweet, yet spicy. Citrusy sweet taste, with a slightly bitter, dry aftertaste. Enjoyable.

A less than average saison and one of the lesser beers from Schlafly. Grassy, dry, with some unbalanced sweetness.

Backlog rating. The Appearance is a small ivory head that mostly diminished, hazy body, no visible carbonation, spotty amounts of lacing, and a golden hue. The Aroma is malt, spice and fruity. The Taste is malty, spice, acidic, and has a dry finish. The Palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. In conclusion, this beer is quaffable and worth trying.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear amber with about a finger of white head. Aroma of orange, bubblegum, wheat and banana. Taste is pretty much the same. Very light sweet. Light bodied with lively carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, not bad but not that good either. Probably for the best that this one is done.

Thanks to daknole. Bottle pours orange-amber with an off-white head. Aroma shows notes of grainy malt, clove, and yeast. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of toffee, apple, and pizza dough. This definately does not feel like a saison.

Bottle. Tasty little brew, but a saison? Hell no. Amber pour. White head. Caramel malt, brown sugar, very light hops. Not sure what to call it, but it is NOT a saison.

12 oz. bottle, packaged on 08/26/2010 and consumed in November 2010. The pour yields a very lightly hazy, dark orange-amber to sienna tinted body. A small head of smooth beige foam settles to a thin but lasting blanket with a ramped up edge. Scattered, medium-sized spots of lacing mark the glass. The nose resembles a Belgian amber of sorts, showing notes of caramel, glazed bread crust, and general dark fruit esters, all along with sweet dough, Grains of Paradise, and some peppery flowers. Flavors are the same, again showing sweet, bready, caramelly malts, with complimentary notes of doughy Belgian yeast and mild dark spices. Again, I’d go Belgian amber over saison, but what do I know? The palate is medium bodied and somewhat creamy in consistency, soft nips of carbonation massaging the tongue on its way down. Not bad overall, but rather boring and unimaginative.

I really like schlafly beer and until i had this particular brew i would have told you that i had yet to have a single schlafly product that I did not enjoy. That being said, this brew disappointed me. It isn’t absolutely terrible but it just is not very good. The flavors (kinda fruity with some malts) come across as sharp and forced. It also finishes strong with this big alcoholic bite at the end which is wierd for this brew only having 6% abv. Anyways if you have never had a schlafly beer, i highly recommend them, just not this one.

Amber orange in color... Aroma is Belgian yeast... Flavor is fruity and almost Cidery initially, finishes slightly spicy... Kind of soapy, notes of dishwater on the finish... Would be a lot better if it weren’t for the off finish... Okay
