Brewed June í06. Iíve been sitting on this a while, as Iíve had mixed luck with Uplandís saisons. I thought this might be the same saison they brewed up before, but I dontí think it is the one I rated. This reminds me so much of my first experience with uplandís saison... which wasnít a great experience. Looks gold with a decent, though quickly diminishing greyish head. Lightly sweet, with some astringency and cloves and ginger in the nose. Some honey, lemon grass? A bit of pepper in this relatively sweet beer. Smooth and a bit creamy on the palate, with some good viscosity. The flavors are still sharp on this beast. Maybe another couple years of aging might have made this more palatable. Creamy tart lemon, big ginger and cloves. A lingering acidity on the tongue A bit of diacetyl is quite a bit out of place. A peppery finish also sticks out. This is too sweet and over spiced, in my opinion. Iím not a huge fan of cloves or ginger, so maybe Iíve got no right to dislike this beer. While I donít like this, I certainly donít seem to have the same strength of feelings as the dude who rated this previously.

Just awful. Aroma is ok, but with curiously strong spicieness. There is a decent, but unreamakrable, beer underneath, but then absurd amounts of spice are added. The cloves realy stick out, and just dominate the beer in a wholly unacceptable maner. Finishes sour with a horrible clovey burn. Ive come across some realy bad beers in my day, but this might be the worst I have ever had.
