Rating 3,000 (this happened haphazardly) Notes from my backlog: Hazy golden with an off white film of head. Citrusy aroma- some Nelson Sauvin hop notes and biscuit. Lively body with a nice dry flavor. Biscuity, citrusy, white wine vinous notes (Nelson Sauvin hops). with a nice minerally dry back. Long flavors, balanced, nice.

Bottle from Bo Brooks’ Liquors, Baltimore. Clear gold, with a slight, white, head and touch of fizziness. Light, floral hop and lemongrass aroma, with a peppery edge. Full-flavoured drinking, with lemon and stone fruits, a yeasty edge , more hops and a decent, bitter finish. Very good.

"has potential, but so overcarbonated, that after it was done foaming (just a little, i’ve seen way worse) i took a swig. the slightest swish in my mouth caused the beer to expand to the point i could barely swallow it. gassy in the belly too, as was the St F Saison. However, the balance of spice, earthyness, malt and tart was so nice as to almost be able to overlook this shortcoming. almost. i wanted to love this beer and just liked it.

Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy dark golden with a nice sticky snow white head. Aroma has some nice spicy notes, a touch of saffron, a hint of bubble gum. Flavor is solid with some biscuit-like bready notes, some saffron-like spiciness, a bit of bubble gum sweetness, some pear-like fruitiness. Solidly thick mouthfeel. Very impressed.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
BTLD 01/07/14. Nose is spicy with heavy lemon and yeast, tart, distinctly Belgian saison nose, lots of citrus and pepper, some lighter herbal and spice notes, getting into fruit with the hops, too. Cloudy yellow-golden with a dense off-white head. Taste sweet with pils malt character, crisp with pepper and saison spice throughout, persistently tangy/tart (even a little puckering if you go quickly) with low bitterness, smooth and balanced, heavy yeast character in a refreshing but heavy medium body.
