2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Judging by the ratings of others, I guess the pour I had of this beer was totally off. Re-rating to come at a future date... Hazy gold pour with hint of brown, no head. Aroma is spice, hay, yeast, pears. Taste is very spicy, slightly sour, funky, with lasting peppery aftertaste. Body is medium, no carbonation to speak of, sticky mouthfeel. Overall, kinda flat, sticky, and weak.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2011 Bottle. Yeah, this is somethin’ I have to do for myyyyyself, yeah. What say you, and all your friends meet all of my friends, in the alley with knives! Pours a huge glowing orange with a big ’ol off-white head. Aroma of pineapple, pear, green apple, funky esters and green grapes. Fuller bodied, especially for a saison. Tart, dry, tangy palate. Finishes like a cidery champagne. Nice across the board. Last rating until 1,000. Wheeewwww, buddy.

pours a pale yellow with huge, soapy head that leaves little lacing. Smells of citrus, and notes of hay and bananas. Taste is light sweet with a dry, light bitterness on the backend. Highly carbonated, almost fIzzy. Overall, a nice brew with a clean, crisp taste. Would have again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml bottle. From bierkompass.de.
Hazy orange colour with small white head.
Malt, earth, farmyard, yeast, wheat and floury grain in aroma.
Malty powdery earthy flavour with yeast, grain and mild hops.
Not that great Saison. Disappointment.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at Blue Monk, Buffalo - November 20, 2010. Hazy, bubbly gold with a solid long-lasting creamy/fizzy off-white head and some drapes sticking to the sides. While a tad cold, the aroma is pleasing, if mild - spicy, a bit grassy (dry grass) some alcohol and only a hint of pear sweetness. Taste is quite dry - like a grassy trippel, very restrained alcohol, nicely balanced - soft mouthfeel, only mildly carbonated, a hint of astringency in the finish, low-level ... quite delicate, it takes its time opening up and is never big, but very, very tasty and drinkable.

Pours cloudy gold. Aroma is bready, earthy, spicey and grass. Taste is muted sweetness with nice earthy undertones. Finishes with a little bitterness. Solid saison.
