750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 4/25/2018. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep golden color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon, pear, apple, rose water, lavender, mint, flowers, herbal, grass, pepper, clove, honey, biscuit, and floral/yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with awesome complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, flowers, and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, pear, apple, rose water, lavender, mint, flowers, herbal, grass, pepper, clove, honey, biscuit, and floral/yeast earthiness. Good amount of peppery yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, rose water, lavender, mint, flowers, herbal, grass, pepper, clove, honey, biscuit, and floral/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Incredible complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, flowers, and bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/yeast/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an incredible flower spiced saison style. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, flowers, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. The flower spice flavors were incredibly well balanced and complimenting to the saison style character. Really impressed me. A highly enjoyable offering.

750ml bottle pours a pale straw color with a bit of head. Flavors of lemon peel and ginger make this a delightful saison.

Lots of floral aromatics. Main complaint is that it was nearly totally flat, which took away from what this could be. Super unique experience. Definitely worth trying if given the chance.

Bottle pour, much thanks to Chris for sharing. Pours a cloudy orange color with a patchy head. Funky aroma with flowers, spice and dry fruit. Initially spicy flavor with a big lavender taste to it. Long bran finish. Drinkable for sure, but if I were to describe this beer with one word : strange.

Prufrockstar (1360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle, thanks to Homer. Hazy orange pour with frothy white head, irregular lacing, okay retention. Aroma: herbal, floral, cardboard. Taste: caramel and stale flowers. Herbal, orange citrus, marmalade. Moderately sweet at the front, but followed by a sharp, botanical honeyed finish. Palate: medium body, average carbonation. Overall: being diplomatic about this, this is ... interesting.

BREWMUSKCLES (2339) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 13, 2014
complicated in taste yet demonstrative. flowery and rich with lime and honey sweetness balanced with some earthy malt and licorice spice. a bit of grass adds freshness. it is busy perhaps refreshing and satisfying if confusing.

fishonmyplane (498) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - MAY 20, 2014
I’m a little puzzled by the high rating of this one. First off, it simply isn’t a saison. It’s just not. The aroma is pleasant, but too perfumy. The flavor had tons of flowers and an almost artificial, rich, overpowering, honey-like sweetness. Not my bag.

Bottle sample from notes. Pours a slightly hazy orange golden color with a medium sized fluffy white head. The aroma has sweet floral notes, herbal, some light citrus and pale malts. The flavor has sweet honey, floral without being soapy, lavender, honeysuckle, lemon citrus, yeast, light spice with an earthy funk. Medium bodied, dry finish with some mild bitterness and funk lasting to the finish.

RamyG4 (322) - , New Jersey, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber with a large off-white head. Aroma is lime and lime peel, lightly floral, with a good amount of spice. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter, with a decent amount of alcohol. Finish is dry and alcoholic, with a load of spice. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Not a big fan of this.
