2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
In bottle; aroma was hoppy for sure, with some fruit notes. Taste was not what I expected, hoppy with some earthiness and quite dry. Not my kind of beer but OK

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Upright - hazy light copper - nose of fruity fruity and citric American hops, crackery malts - flavor is crisp and crackery - lightly flinty - a touch of honey sweetness and toasted grain on the tail end - light spiciness from the yeast - dry, toasty, gingerbread finish, with some light estery character - an awesome brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aromas of grass, hay and pine. Hazy orange/tan with an off-white head. Definitely tasting a Saison barnyard funkiness that’s tempered by the roasted malt and grassy, herbacious hops. An underlying sourness, but this isn’t a "sour". Like a Saison crossed with an American pale ale. Some lemony/citrus notes and a clean, refreshing finish. This is a delicious farmhouse style ale that’s very easy to drink, but is not simplistic.

bottle... bright and clear gold, great white lacing... the aroma and taste are both a very solid saison, exactly what you expect, floral, bitter, a bit of musk, not very sweet, gets much better as you drink, if it had a bit more of sourness would be world class

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to DrBill, pour was hazy yellow with white head, aroma brought notes of fruity peach and pear, some slight spice and earth tones, biscuit and slight toffee notes in there as well, with a noticeable pepper component. Taste is a mix of slightly tart white fruit, hints of earth and sweet biscuit, some slight fruity notes balanced by a dry peppery component, finishing fairly dry, slightly sweet with a slight herbal quality.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark cloudy amber with huge amounts of off white tight head. The nose has a vibrant farmhouse aroma, slightly peppery with some lemon notes towards the back. The taste doesn’t have quite the farmhouse punch the nose brought but definitely still there. Well balanced spice, notes of lemon back palate. Fairly crisp, maybe slightly dry, assertive carbonation, medium body. Very well balanced and tasty.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2011 Bottle @ bros house. Slightly hazy, slightly cloudy, fluorescent orange appearance with a cream colored nose. Slightly spicy, belgian yeasty, orange citrusy, a little bready nose. Somewhat bready yeasty, slightly thick, a bit citrusy, a touch tangy flavor. Really a nice beer.
