3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at BT. Pours a slight hazed pale orange/ deep yellow with a diminished white head. Aroma is saline phenolic and light spicy, grassy, and slightly herbal with a slight DMS and vege and some malt sweetness. Flavor is a bit on the sweet side especially in the end, some light fruitiness, phenolic, spices, and some grass with hint of lemon- needs to be drier. Ok.

Wonderful light saison. Balances in all the right way, perfectly suited to my tastes. Pours a orange amber without a lot of head or lacing. Some floral aromas, Belgian yeast and lightly fermented fruit here. Abbey oranges integrate beautifully here. Finish equal parts light sweet and sour. Very nice beer - could drink this all night. Bottle.

On tap at Unos translucent amber with the great funk of a true barnyard ale. Light taste and easy finish.

Iím currently rating every SN brew Iíve ever had in one clean sweep.
I grew up on the classic SN Pale having it around during high school, and since have watched SN grow into a national representation of incredible craft beer. Living 45 mins away is a treat for the random growler fill. Keep up the amazing work and thanks!

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
