3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours orange amber with spare, oily beige head. Aroma is malt, flowers, some orange/citrus and cinnamon/clove/spice. Taste is all of the above with a little more emphasis, mouthfeel is right, however finish is relatively short, and weak on the palate. One of the better American saisons Iíve tried.

12 oz bottle, roughly $3.79 at Andersonís; thanks, Dad. Pours light copper; fairly thin, almost-fizzy head. Aroma is dry, tangy, citrus, grass, yeast, grape. Dry, tangy flavor; citrus, bread. Medium-thin body with coarse, lively carbonation. Iím not really getting the pepper here. Not blown-away but good for the style.

Tap pour - opaque orange-gold with a thin white head. Relatively intense aroma that is quite unique - lots of yeastiness with a Belgian feel, wheat, spice, pepper...odd, yet intriguing. Flavor is more traditional saison, but maybe a smidge less spice and a bit more bready yeastiness (yep, technical term). Iíll add there was a slight hint of sour/funk in here that was intriguing...otherwise, definitely some peppery notes. Easy on the palate, this was a medium bodied brew. Overall enjoyable, though Iím not yearning for another taste...

Nice saison nose. Clear deep gold with good head retention. Very solid Saison interpretation with some subtle pepper.

Had a glass at Ashleyís in Ann Arbor as part of a sampler. This is s little disjointed. Good spice, but a little too sweet. Banana?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazy orange/amber with minimal head that dissipated quickly leaving very little lacing. Aroma is Belgian yeast, candied fruit and some spice. Despite the ingredients I barely notice mandarin oranges. Taste follows the nose and is sweet with a little bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied. I am novice when it comes to this style but this one isnít bad.

This copper tinged golden beer has a spicy aroma and flavor. It has a slightly sour flavor which is well balanced by a smoky aftertaste.

Goldish color, zero head or lace. Chocolatey malt, Belgian spices, tingly, smooth, earthy, a bit of barnyard yeast, finishes a touch sweet. Decent.

Small corked bottle from Total Wine Vegas. Nice and true to category saison. Has a nice little spice kick to it. Pretty traditional. Enjoyable.
