2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle pours an orangey brown color without much head. A range of spices that over power the beer that don't sit well with me.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance is golden brown to tan in color, with a thick light tan head and above average lacing. Smell is sweet, earthy, and yeasty. Taste is fantastic: herbaceous, woody, with a roasted barley up front; leathery and tangy sweet; all while a honey/brown sugar/banana sweetness shines through. It seems to be too sweet at times, but the sweetness yields to an earthy/yeasty spiciness.

Bottle at Café Demervallei. Dark brown-orange, lace, cloudy. Very spicy nose, pumpkins, fruits, some citrus and brown sugar. Spicy, sweet flavor, cake and citrus. Strange and over-spiced.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy deep copper and amber coloured body with a nice one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of bright flowers, lavender (huge), curacao, hay, wheat and a hint of white pepper with a lot of yeast and a touch of hops. Medium-bodied; Assertive floral flavours with the lavender really hitting hard and heavy, some light wheat, a hit of yeast, a little grassiness and a bit of sugars at the end. Aftertaste shows a well rounded flavour with the flowers dominating, but the wheat balanced with the hops and a touch of sweetness for good measure. Overall, a nice and complex herb-based saison/belgie with a good sweetness. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Arrowine in Arlington, Virginia on 19-July-2013 sampled at home in Washington on 15-September-2013.

Bottle. Could have sworn I had rated this before. Amber colour, aroma green pesto, bit boozy. Very nice though. Taste is light citrus and pesto. Weird and nice

I had this one on tap at Churchkey in DC by the recommendation of the bartender, who is also into craft beer. I have faith in my fellow beer geeks!
Ap: 1.5 inch head, golden brown, with moderate carbonation.
Ar: Smells like Chai tea, lemon, and cinnamon - eerily similar to DFH’s "Sah’tea."
T: I hope my review is not tainted, but I learned in the middle of my tasting that this beer is a Stillwater product, but was actually brewed in Belgium, and with Belgian yeast. Come to think of it, I do actually notice that: the dark fruit and Belgian yummy "funk." Sweet without being too. Nutmeg?
P: Coats the mouth quite a bit, so I might have to ding it for that.
O: Like I stated, very much like DFH "Sah’Tea", but with a bit darker plum-like aftertaste. This added to the complexity. No alcohol detected.
