3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden with a nice white head. Intersting herbal nose, light to medium body, nice bitterness, the sage character is a little too intense for me but it’s not bad. Again, a little on the sweet side for a saison...

This poured a cloudy darker yellow color with a white head. Aroma was lots of yeast and spices, somewhat musty too. Flavor was very lightly tart, dry, and spicey, mainly lemon and coriander.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a semi hazy gold with massive big white head. Big sage nose, clean and citrusy. Flavor is very similar. Sweeter than I had thought it would be. Very bubbly and champagne like. Good for what it is, but I don’t particularly care for it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Liquor Loft. Murky yellow pour with white head and visible carbonation. Nice buttery, wheat and sage spice aroma. Light lemon and wheat taste with yeast, orange peel and perfume. Not always a big saison fan - but this is an interesting little sipper.

Sampler at CBF 2011-05-27. Murky yellow with a white, creamy film. Spicy, cardamum, perfume aroma. Sweet, heavy bitter, acidic flavors with spicy notes. Prickling tongue. Full body. Grows in the mouth. Dry finish. Suspect bacterial infection from the acidic presence.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
CPH BF 2011. Golden colour, small head. Aroma is sweet fruits, some mild soapy notes along with mild yeast, earth and herbs. Flavour is quite similar. Good attempt, but I felt this was a bit too clean and fruity to be really nice.
