3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle, no date from Dyan. Slightly hazy amber with a one finger off-white creamy head, fair retention. Belgian yeast and earthly front with some coriander and citrus hops, light biscuity malt. Flavor is much the same with some lemon and a tinge of leather. Semi-dry finish with bitterness at a 3, tinge of alcohol noted. Moderately high carbonation with a light to medium body. Pretty good saison, even by Belgian standards.

Bottle shared at a recent BA/RB tasting... Poured cloudy, golden/amber with a white head. Nice yeasty flavors. The aroma had esters and yeast stuff going on. The esters in the flavor hinted towards citrus. Lots of spice, vanilla sweetness with more yeast spiciness coming into play.

Bottle at Andy and Maxís fantasy tasting, I think thanks to Paul. - Hazy orange, foamy white head, funky and a bit spicey, herbal. caramel and biscuity malts. Finishes a bit astringent, but still well balanced. Smooth mouthfeel, a but creamy. Tasty with a touch of funk. Nice Saison.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This shit it da bomb. Beautiful looking beer with a thick head that fades slowly and leaves a nice lacing behind it. I think this was batch 2, not sure though. The base saison is on the money, slightly biscuit sweet with nuanced fruitiness combined with a nice hop fruitiness (citra I believe). Doughy yeastiness throughout the beer. Great thick mouthfeel that goes down easy with the accompanying hops easing of pressure on the aftertaste. I could have drank this for hours. I am only hesitant to give it even a higher score until I can sit down with a whole bottle to myself. This was shared by Paul, thanks Paul.

Pours a very light copper with a solid frothy/creamy head that sticks around to 1-2 fingers. Aroma is very dry grassy hay, and the taste follows suit. As a rule, I stay away from American brewed Belgian styles, & this one is definitely going to be an exception. The carbonation & mouthfeel are near perfect., and the finish goes right along with it.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle poured into my large crazy french snifter.
Thanks Michael for introducing this and sending it my way!
A- Body is a pretty translucent medium amber hue. Fogginess is somewhat dynamic. Pours with a large 2+ finger foamy white head. Head has great retention at 1-2 fingers or so. Lots of lacing left behind in the glass. What is keeping me from the 5 is the amber hue-as this style is traditionally more blond-though there is nothing wrong with the amber.
S- Smell is prominently fruity. Peach, apple, pear, apricot, a hint of pineapple and mango. There is also a good amount of floral hops in the nose accenting it as well as a slight bready yeast backbone.
T- Taste is slightly more complex and balanced than the nose. The fruitiness (as described above) is there initially but there is a huge floral accent as well as a lot of peppery spice and prominent bready yeast backbone. The finish is surprisingly dry but the spiciness and floral hop bitterness are kicked up a notch. What lingers is a very mild floral hop bitterness and peppery spice flavor.
P- Body is light to medium weight and drinkable-yet not thin-with a high tingly carbonation.
O- This is an awesome local saison. Much like a hoppy belgian, amber ale. There could be more funk present to make this better for the style-but the beer as is is really good. Saison is one of my favorite styles-Iíve had the good, the bad, and the ugly... this is a VERY good brew...though a bit of a different example of the style.

Courtesy of SuzyGreenberg. Pours hazy deep gold with white head. The aroma is apple fruity, pear fruity, then spicy and a bit tart here and there. The taste has apples to near pear sweetness and then it gets a bit spicy to grainy to tart into the finish.
