Cloudy copper with a head that is as frothy and big as can be. Nose of lemon, spice, yeast. Flavor spicey up front with spice, herbs and zest of citrus. Can really taste the heat from the alcohol, but what a wonderful suprise in this one.

[2427-20090807] 750mL bottle. Wheat yeast aroma has some whiskey notes and a mild vegetal base. Hazy, light orange brown body with a medium-lasting foamy white head and some lacing. Wheatie yeast flavour has some sweet licorice hints and mild grape notes. Medium body is bitter. Really nice, interesting and drinkable.

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - AUG 22, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2010 Holy shit. Aroma is slightly sour- acidic, funky, yeasty, lemon. Yum. Taste is slightly licorice, yeasty, alcoholic, oak, and funk. This beer is a lot bigger than expected by the aroma. I really want to like the taste, but I canít. The taste ruins this for me. So hot! Funky, peppery, alcoholic, dry.

Beautiful saison. Nose of hay, grass, some good poop, some caramel, and some spice. Flavor has a nice, lemon citrus presence to add to the rest. Not as sweet as the nose, but still pretty awesome. A great dry, semi-hoppy finish goes perfectly with the rest. A bit over-carbonated but still a great saison. Really enjoyed it.

Strange... people are saying that it was too carbonated, mine was way under-carbonated, giving it a typical American Saison character, too sweet and chewy for the style, brett wasnít even detectable, fruitiness was unappealing and not quite balanced enough by the rye. Seemed like it had potential, hopefully they work out the kinks.

2008-08-07. Pastel golden yellow body with a frothy off white head. (4+) Pleasant aroma is lightly funky, floral, light coriander notes? (7+) Flavour is similar, light lemon and bitterness, very light funk. Alcohol is hardly noticed. Lovely! Not a lot of brett character though? Average palate suits it. (3+) Very good. More please.

Pours copper/orange with a sustained white head. Smells grassy with some dry malt and rye bread hints. Tastes perfumy, lightly bitter, dry, grassy.

One of the better Saisons Iíve ever had. Big alcohol, but all hidden. A very tart citrus saison, not as savory/salty as others. Good spices, present funk/sour. Very full flavor, not watery or thin at all. Although it had good carbonation, it was not a light bubbly beer, this was a heavier, although relatively dry Saison. Delectable to drink, wish I had more.
