UPDATED: NOV 21, 2006 Pours bright gold into a tulip. Fluffy bright white micro head top hats above the rim. Spicy honey and caramel aromas. Heavily carbonated sweet honey with a lasting alcohol finish. I’d be interested in seeing how this ages and mellows - but not enough to pay another $12.99.

Found this gem in my local beer store which was a shock, but was I surprised. Pours out a cloudy golden color with a small lively white head. Aroma is of some yeast and some spice. Nice mouthfeel taste is complex and a bit refreshing. Notes of vanilla, orange peel, lemon and some yeasty notes. Finish was of some dry spices with a very slight alcohol burn. Excellent beer in a style I’m starting to like more and more.

Pours a deep yellowish-golden with a fully lasting, fluffy, three-fingered white head. The aorma is spicey. Flavor has a slight sour touch but is overall spicey with light hopish bitterness and a bit of fruit and malt.

SpringsLicker (3121) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 12, 2006
Cloudy yellow pour with a thick creamy head that throws off a funky Belgian aroma. Starts slightly tart with some sweetness underneath. No hops. A bit thin. I think I liked the old in-house bottled regular saison better.

Shag (2585) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - NOV 5, 2006
A cloudy yellow appearance with a very large head. It was quite the struggle to pour this into the clear plastic cup at the Motel 6. A spicy, coriander, apricot, and pear aroma. The flavor is quite tangy with some oranges, peaches, apricots, and alcohol showing. A nice warming and sour finish. This was a good one!

egajdzis (5275) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2007 Poured a hazy golden color with a large, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus fruits, light spices of coriander and cardamom, and a yeastiness. The taste was a bit sweet, with lemon meringue, grassy hops, yeast, citrus fruit, black pepper, and alcohol. I’d imagine a year or so with this will really work wonders.

I had this over the course of the weekend and I wish I could remember it better. i remember thanking god that it didn’t taste too much like super sour funk saisons. that being said, i still don’t really care for the style.

Pailhead (4633) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - OCT 23, 2006
Bottle: Courtesy of Styles. Aroma is lightly fruity and yeasty with some mild lemon sourness and light flowery hops. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a large soapy white head with great retention. Lots of oragne peel in the flavor. Moderate amounts of citrus in the form of lemon and orange. Mildly yeasty. Finishes with a mellow flowery and spicey finish.
