Sigh, The "unique" saison yeast isnt a saison yeast. Tastes like sweet blonde ale with some fruity character. I love saisons and this makes me mad.

Bottle poured into glass. Orange color with a cloudy center. Orange zest in the aroma, followed by spicy citrus in the flavor. Not too bad.

Bottle to pint. Looks good; honey-colored with nice carbonation and head. Smells solid; apples and spice. Tastes like it smells, only a little doughy. Average on the palate. Alright.

Orange pour with very small head. Very mild spicing and citrus. Not a regular Saison drinker, so itís hard to compare.

James Joyce saison tasting. Hazy, medium orange, with an average head. Super orangey and citrusy aroma--almost no funk or barnyard qualities that you might want in a saison. Not to get stuck on style boundaries, but I felt like this one wasnít much like a saison at all, with the exception of the palate. I might interpret this more as an imperial witbier. So a somewhat interesting beer, but I thought a bit out of balance toward citrus, and definitely not what Iíd think of as saison.

Cloudy golden colour, nice yeasty, slightly vegetal aroma. Slight head and some lace. Not sweet, not hoppy. Nice saison.

Pours clear gold with thin white head. Nice hoppy flavor with scents of wheat and light malt flavor. Nothing super special, but its very easy to drink.

Aroma is a pretty intense mix of grapes, cut grass and maybe pineapple? It pours a cloudy honey color with a smallish white head. Taste is a lot of different things... spicy, sweet, sour and a bitter finish. Light body and a slightly creamy texture.

22oz 2011 bottle, shared with Jimmy and Lisa, served in tulip glasses. Good, thin layer of white head on the surface, leaving some reaches of lace. Hazy golden color. Good, fine soft carbonation, great dry texture. Tasty fruity spice flavors. Nice and estery, very interesting but not too imposing belgian yeast. Nice spice and savory taste, very enjoyable. Light zesty sweetness. Just a wee bit of warmth. Delicious saison
