Clean smooth and sweet. High alcohol content but not high alcohol taste. Very sweet but an excellent saison.

3fourths (9016) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2016 Notes from a sample glass at the brewery in Huntsville. Clear still copper with a short white head. Aroma is cracked pepper, banana esters, candy-like strawberry fruitiness. Medium+ bodied, sweet with moderate bitterness and bright effervescence. Malt is lightly toasty / cracker-like, caramel-forward if anything, but overall subdued. The nose is your basic high fermentation temperature Saison yeast phenolics and fruity American hops, without fault or flaw but also without depth. And the sweetness and body seem closer to Tripel than saison (which makes sense with this being 8+%).

bytemesis (6301) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Tap. Pours crystal clear orange amber, small off white head, dissipates slowly, nice lacing. Aroma is herbal, orange, pepper, light mint. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, light tart, phenolic, almost vomit note, oranges, herbal. Medium body, acidic. Meh.

Draft sampler pours golden with a white head. Aroma of malts, bread, grass and spice. Taste is bread, malts and some toffee.

snoworsummer (4378) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Draft at the brewery. Pours clear amber with a fizzy white head. Tastes like dry herbs, light nuttyness, grassy, light alcohol, lemon. Dry feel. Light body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like herbs, wheat, lavender, banana, lemon, creamy.

Suttree (5928) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Sampled at 2013 Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Cloud orange, big white head. Bready, toasty aroma, then some light spicy notes. Nicely crisp palate. Flavor is mildly spicy, the a good deal of fruity yeast flavors. Not bad...

jbrana (640) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Nice and tart with a nice sweetness and cereal notes. Has a bit of citrus acidity to it and kind if tastes like shock tarts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Draft. Pours medium amber with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma is very sweet, some fruity esters, mild hop bitterness. A candy, mouth-puckering sweetness dominates the flavor. Some fruity esters squeak through. Not enough yeastiness to qualify as a saison in my book. Too one note with the sweetness. Fairly boozy. Thick mouthfeel.

GTAEgeek (1845) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 21, 2012
On tap at the Nook. Pours pale gold with a thin, white head. The aroma is hay, cereals, resin, and pine sap. The flavor is candy sweetness and a significant hop bitterness. The palate is medium to heavy, sticky, chewy, and a little acidic. Overall, this is a fair pale ale, but lacks the complexity and the yeast profile of a good saison.

DiarmaidBHK (4085) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Draft at brewpub. Pours brown with a quarter inch of white foam. Massive rum notes on the nose. If you were to blindfold someone and have them sniff this beer, they would swear it was rum. There’s a lot of rum on the tongue as well. I do miss the farmhouse. Finishes clean. Interesting experiment. I’m not sure if it comes off.
