glennmastrange (2445) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle. Moderate straw for the malt, herbs and grass for the hops, moderate to heavy barnyard, peat and earth for the yeast, with white wine, smoke, wood and pepper. Head is average to large, frothy/fizzy, white with good lacing and is fully lasting. Color is murky medium amber. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately to heavily acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation and a dry finish. An extremely earthy and somewhat fruity smelling Saison posing as a Traditional Ale. It is a touch flat tasting in the finish.

dmac (4743) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 16, 2014
22oz bomber from willblake, love that Jon saw "Viking style saison" and thought of me. Poured a cloudy yellow body with a long lasting average to larger frothy white head. Aroma is smoke, juniper, yeast, Belgian spice. Palate is nice medium, average carbonation, creamy body. Flavor of smoke, juniper, floral, yeast, smoked bread and bubble gum. Interesting and gets better with time.

Appearance :
Top: medium rocky top with some rings on glass.
Base: hazy amber.
Palate : smoother front with drier finish.
Taste: frontal mild smoke with farm feel. Organic garden vibe to it with mild tartness. If smoke was more pronounced this could be quiet nice.
