BottleÖ Hazy golden ale with orange highlights and a small, fizzy, white head. The bouquet furnishes peach, pear and spicy clove. Light-bodied with tickling carbonation. The flavor is nicely balanced and mildly acidic. Not at all sweet, but also, not at all bitter. Finishes crisp and tangy.

Originally reviewed: 3/29/10. Poured this into a tulip glass. Pours a cloudy darker gold, with a thin white head on top. Retention was pretty weak, but there were lots of spotty globs of lace left over after each sip. Scents of yeast, pineapple, grains, sour apples, and a bit of honey. The body was crisp, bordering on effervescent. Smooth going down though. This was one of the more bready Saisons Iíve had. Pretty filling beer. The tart yeast comes out in the flavor, but itís rather subtle. Mild fruitiness on the backend, but again, lots of bread here. I like it. I could handle this bomber no problem. Great refreshing beer. Even though this is a one-off, my local store has a bunch of these left. I may have to grab a few more for the summer. Recommend.

Maggieís pours a clear bubble filled light amber color. Medium sized frothy head. Ton of lacing. The smell is yeasty and bready. Spicy with a hint of grassy and herbal hops. Finish that off with a nice sweet aroma of fruit. I was really hoping for more of a funky smell but what I got was more of a fresh clean smell. Not bad but just not what I was hoping for. The taste is also very clean and crisp. Light amount of fruit, especially orange. Small amount of tartness. A shot of yeast and wheat. It ends with the grassy hop flavor. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and crisp. Goes down really easy.

22 oz. bottle and damn if I canít remember who sent this to me. Thanks to the nice soul Iím ignoring! Pours a cloudy gold color with a small white head that settles unevenly. Aroma of farmhouse funk, apples, white grapes, candi sugar, straw, cereal, and sweet bready malts. Flavor of farmhouse funk, apples, apricots, sweet doughy malts, and cereal. Light-medium bodied, with a funky, sweet, and dry mouthfeel and medium, crisp carbonation. Drinking really nice right now, and hit the spot on a warm summer night while grilling out.

22oz bottle, Iím guessing this is quite a bit old now, at least a few years. Pours with a nice doughy, spicy aroma. Interesting. Pours with a pillowtop head that disappears a bit quickly, I like the interesting yeasty character. A bit too watery for me though. Still nice.
