Lemon, spicy pepper, and banana are the first notes the tongue pick up. Slight touches of alcohol, funky grass compost, and honey. The spiciness of the rye really comes alive as it warms up. This is unreal! Everyone should try this! I gotta get a few more bottles to put away for a few years.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very hazy copper orane with thick, lightly tan-tinged head. Aroma is very gaseous in way with very earthy hops (mineral undertones) and very tart/sour notes (such as what could be described from tart cherry. The first taste yields a lot of cherry notes, particularly dried cherries with brown sugar undertones and raisin notes. A very sweet beer with a light to creamy body and quite a bit of carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 750ml into a snifter. Pours a very nice deep golden with about an inch of fizzy head with never totally dissipates. Aroma is of funk, yeast, lemon and grass; pretty tangy. Mouthfeel is very thick, probably the thickest saison Iíve had. Itís not quite syrupy, but close. Taste is fairly typical of a saison but with the addition of tartness from both the brett and the rye. I can actually taste both flavors and they complement each other very well. Itís a very good bottle to have along with a good dinner. Not an everyday drinker but I would absolutely drink it every so often.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Really cloudy orange pour with an inch of fluffy white head. Strong Scent of lemon, lemongrass, clove a little cracked pepper. Soft carbonation, frothy mouthfeel, clean finish thatís slightly bitter. Taste follows the nose with strong lemon, sour rubbery yeast, clove, cracked pepper, zestuness is muted by a wheat taste. Nice saison with high ABV thatís well hidden, decent saison but not a breathtaking brŁery offering.

Color cobrizo tupido con espuma blanca densa. Aromas afrutados de manzana y ciruerla verde ademŠs del centento. Cuerpo medio, inicio dulce y afrutado que acaba de forma seca y con un toque de alcohol moderado. Buena.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample @ BBF ’08, Boston. Pours a hazy orange with a white head that has some staying power. The aroma is funky with earth and spice notes detectable. Taste is the same, with the beer remaining drinkable despite the heavy, heavy carbonation. I think I like these guys, and I think this is quite a nice saison.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Pours a beautiful pale orange with a massive white head thatís nice and sticky and sticks around forever. Bubbles escalate throughout the entire tall glass. Looks the part. Aroma shows nice classic saison qualities. Belgian yeast throws off some spices, pepper, phenolic, some citrus twang. Some banana maybe and a touch of lemon. A touch of creaminess is also present which adds a nice and unique touch. Flavor is smooth with a creamy, silky mouthfeel. The mouthfeel is really the standout here, feels really lovely without any sweetness. Great body. Certainly one of the better Saisons Iíve had and I bet this would continue tasting good for quite some time as the brett is really not showing itself yet.

750 ml bottle
The beer pours a hazy red/orange color with a stiff and fluffy white head and soild sticky lacing.
There are notes of citrus, spice and sweet malt in the nose.
Spices, malt and earthy hops are noted in the flavor. It is well balanced between the malt and hop bitterness. Not too spicy either.
Nice chewy mouthfeel with a medium body.
Very drinkable and well made beer.
