Bottle. Light amber color with a fair amount of head. Citrus and grass aroma. Balanced hoppy and sour taste that is light but dry across the palate.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2012 Soft sour Saison aroma. Complex grassy taste. Decent foam when poured, but reduced to thin foam while drinking. Decent beer worth drinking but not outstanding. (Not the best on the head in the morning)

Yeasty, Spicy aroma from an "old time" mixed drink colored body and generous white lacing. Tart finish from a smooth, medium-bodied beer. I can taste the brettanomyces, but it doesnít overpower the rye like it might.

This is one of those beers where it is very satisfying to drink the entire bomber in the course of an hour or so, since it is gentle, supple, and pleasing - - and by the time you finish it you will have experienced something delightful across different time & flavor-dimensional spaces (not to mention the inevitable changing states of intoxicating consciousness). It is all prairie flowers & warm breezes, and it becomes more and more intriguing complex.

Pours a cloudy orange with a thick pillowy head that settles to a light film. Fig and molasses nose. Spicy and fruity with a hint of straw flavor

The aroma of this beer is fantastically floral, as I expect of a Saisson. The apppearance is orange more than amber and a bit cloudy; very enticing. The taste is a bit of a let-down as I expected the beer to open up more than it did. It finishes and lingers well. The head is beautiful.

Pours a copper hay color with a rich lasting head. The light grape and fruits aroma makes this beer particularly enjoyable. Initially the flavour is well balanced between bitter and sour, but in my opinion a bit too bitter in the end. Lively fizzy beer, with a refreshing taste.

The Brettanomyces is very subtle and pleasing but I was expecting a bit more. Having tried this, I think itís the lactobacillus that I actually am looking for. Jolly Pumpkin Bam Bier is best Iíve seen around here but New Belgiumís La Folie is my absolute favorite. Different categories, but I think thatís what I was hoping for

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle, not aged by me, but unknown shelf-life. Too bad the brew date isnít present on the bottle. Pours a deep cloudy amber with a nice smooth and foamy head. Aroma is a sweet and tart, with slight caramel malt and citrus hop aroma. Dominant aromas blend to be similar to that of green apple. Taste is mostly bitter, with a lighter balance of sweet and sour. Medium bodied with a silk texture and active carbonation. Finishes hoppy at first, but fades to a linger woody and savory.

Pours hazy copper. Creamy white head. Sharp bready nose... definite farmyard aroma. Spicey... with pepper and corriander notes. Light but not lacking on palate with smooth dry finish. Fun saison... recommended for taste drink and stash.
