4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2007 Goddamn this is good. Just the thought of a saison in a can makes me giddy. Could anyone conceive a better summer beer? I poured it into a Duvel tulip because as much as I like the idea, I’d rather not drink it straight from the can...
Aroma is mostly bubblegum and spice, which doesn’t sound that appetizing, but it brought a smile to my face as soon as I opened the can and poured the coppery liquid into my glass. (WTF, a can?!?)
Flavors of wheat, spice, and light bready malt mingle happily on the tongue. The finish leaves a trace of candi sugar sweetness and clove/coriander spice mixed with a bit of noble hop spiciness in the far corners of my mouth.
Hey Omar! Please, please send this beer to Oregon. Ever since the local distributor dropped Oskar Blues I’ve been hurting for good canned beer to take camping. Please?!?!?!
Rerate 45 minutes later: I forgot about my glass while surfing the intraweb. Now that it’s fully up to room temp it has a much more peppery, almost smoky flavor to it.. Very nice lingering pepper/hop bite that seems to rise out of nowhere and stick to the corners my mind...
I repeat. PLEASE bring this to Portland!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Straight down the middle fastball Belgian style ale. Not sure how they call it a saison as well as the Belgian style is overwhelming. Well made, crisp/fresh feel, and exactly what a Belgian lover would want.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly sweet aroma, with hints of wheat and pepper. Pours a hazy amber with a thin white head. Crisp malt flavors of biscuit pair up nicely with the pepper esters from the yeast. The finish is very dry, with a bit of herbal hop notes. Very light bodied and easy drinking.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear honey-amber with a nice but effervescent buff head. Sharp, malty aroma has fruity and subtle hoppy underpinnings. Crisp, malty flavor teases with hoppy and apple undertones. not spectacular but enjoyable and thirst-quenching. Smooth mouthfeel has fairly firm body, if not much fizz. Don’t be cynical, try this ale!
