4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy yellow. Funky light citrus, straw, and light malt aroma. I thought this stuff rocked...great big flavor, totally tasty but hard to pinpoint...citrus, full bodied, not too malty or hoppy or spicy; dry and funky light saison brett stuff and really great flavors overall. I liked this more than the White or Black Orchid (both of which were very good).

Bottle my wife picked up out west. Pours a very active light golden copper, massive white head, leaving lace. Nose is very sweet and fruity, a touch of funk. Tastes sweet, a little bitter, caramel maybe some barrel character and finish that is acidic and tart. Really good.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear deep gold with two fingers of foamy white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim and spotty lacing. Nose is subtle: light brett notes, pale malt, spicy rye, earthy, citrusy hops. Taste is complex, citrus and spice with a just a little brett and rye sourness. Carbonation remains high and fizzy, giving it a light mouthfeel.
Civilised and balanced - but perhaps a touch too civilised. The nose, in particular, is a touch too restrained. The flavour builds and deepens, with a mild alcohol warming, but the nose remains mild, with few indications of whatís to come. The flavour is balanced, sure, but itís a bit out of sync with the nose - Iíd like a little more emphasis there.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This stuff just got to ohio today. I am glad I chose this one over the autumn maple. Pours a reddish light cloudy brown with some rusty hues to it. The head on this is awesome. Never poured that big at all but it stuff around the entire beer and when the glass was swirled the creamy head grew in size. The rye comes through some in the aroma. There is some spiciness and a light funk that comes through. Not overly bretty though. Flavor had a nice bitterness to it and was very smooth drinking. There was some sweetness left in this one though even with the brett. The palate on this was one of the best i have felt too. Creamy and some sweetness which was weird for a saison but it still felt right for the beer. Well done. Cant wait to try the other bruery stuff.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pots a deep cloudy orange with a large white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, pepper and effervescence flower. Taste is the same with a dry finish. A bit too thick and overpowering mouthfeel but very well made.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A-Body is a uniformly translucent glowing amber hue. Pours with a one finger head with great retention. Some lacing left behind in the glass.
S-Typical and good for an amber saison. Very mild floral hop presence, tropical fruit, and sweet bready yeast.
T- The tropical fruit flavors come through the most upfront with a mild bready yeast backbone. Finish is dry and floral as floral hop bitterness shines through-behind this is more tropical fruit and a hint of raw dough.
M- Body is fairly light and dry. Inconsistently doughy as well. Full Spritzy carbonation.
D- Decent saison overall. I really like the dru characters but am not a huge fan of the raw dough that comes through occasionally. It has the hoppiness of an amber saison-but still isnít funky enough for the category for me. Average saison-above average belgian amber ale. Amazingly-the 8.5% is not at all detectable.

750 ML bottle purchased at Beverages for Less in Santee. Wow!!! What a surprise to find this little gem. I think this will be great with some age. But for now it is pretty darn good. Thanks to stefanje for the advice on the sediment because on the second pint pour I swirled the sediment and it brought out a little bit of the sourness and made this beer wonderful. A nice surprise and worth the $12 chance on this one.

Bottle. Yellow/orange pour with bubbly white head. Smells of yeast and malt. Very good flavor. My favorite saison
