4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle into a New Belgium tulip. From old-ass notes.
A: Pours a hazy straw color. There’s about one fingers worth of creamy, white-colored head, as well. Lacing is really beautiful.
S: This is very sage-forward. Buried underneath that note is a solid undercurrent of orange peel. I wouldn’t really consider it complex, but it sure is evocative the way the aroma balances itself between these two notes.
T: The opening flavors are quite spicy, with additional notes of coriander to go along with all of that white sage. Further sips help to accentuate a wonderful tone of orange peel, also. There’s also a bit more complexity than the aroma suggested (subtle notes of apricot, cream, and wheat show up). This brew is really about the excellent sage and citrus peel character, however.
M: Initial heftiness is a tad much, however the finish helps to alleviate this with its crisp, clean finish. Carbonation is high, par for the style.
O: Subjectively, saisons are pretty hit-and-miss for me. I’d easily call this a ’hit’ though, thanks to its balance between drinkability and good (but not great) complexity.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy medium-golden color with a huge, well-retaining, off white head. Lemony and very lightly earthy nose. Moderately crisp on the palate. Mouthfeel is precisely like the nose except that the lemon expresses more and like a shandy.

Smells of citrus and wet dough. Beautiful glowing orange with very quickly dissipating head. Smooth warming herbal sage over a medium wheat body. Well balanced.

On tap at Falling Rock Tap House in downtown Denver. An 8 ounce pour in a stemmed bulbous glass. A somewhat cloudy yellow amber beer with moderate white head and a pronounced sour fruity nose. Yassir! Big and complex fruits on hand here. Reminiscent of dried and candied peaches, apricots. Incredible! 4.

I must have liked it in 2013, but I don’t recall much right now. I don’t even recall if it was tap or bottle. Complete fail on my part.

In bottiglia da 35cl. Aroma di cereale, frumento, terroso, speziato, coriandolo, lievito. Al palato molto rustica, terrosa, frutta gialla, speziato e lievito che caratterizza parecchio la birra.
