Sampled at 16th St. Liquor Store, pours a hazy yellow with a big white head. Aroma of citrus and yeast, with some malty sweetness. Flavour is similar, with some coriander and hops on the finish. Very complex and creamy mouthful. Great one.

Draft @ brewery; slight hazy blond with trace white head and minor lacing; aromas of citrus and dry hops; drinks with a bitter bite on first sip and finished with a nice fruity dryness; definitely more hoppy, dry and bitter than #4; nice grassy hops; light texture and very fresh and drinkable

Bottle thanks to thirdeye11. Pours with a deeper (than 4) golden body and a huge off-white head. Aroma is grassy, fruity, tangerine, perfume, stone fruit. Taste is tart, stonefruit and bitter. Less effervescent than 4. But still fizzy.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy sunset-yellow with a huge thick white head and tonnes of lace. Aroma is full of white grape & malty sweetness - inviting! Good maltiness overrun by coriander, light sulfurous finish with a touch of hops, more white grapes, and a slight astringent flourish. Creamy body with great carbonation. Very enjoyable, however I would have preferred more hops and less coriander. Together with the creamy mouthfeel, I could swear this was more of a wit than a saison at times. Still very quaffable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice farmhouse saison style, with a good yeasty esterness that works with a light malty body, almost wheaty with a good mix of savory spiceness. Slight hop end rounds out the beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2012 Hazy gold, with a crazy ’ice-cream’ head ... looks fantastic. Nose is abundant with hops, a plethora of herbal/floral notes (think oregano, thyme, savory, pepper), and sits very nicely with the biscuit-like caramel malt backbone. Flavor reflects the nose ... fully and beautifully. Mouthfeel is moderate, and the finish has a nice lingering, hoppy balance to it. I paired this with some hearty bread, gruyere cheese, and maple roasted ham ... to great effect. This is a fantastic, rustic, hoppy saison. This farmhouse style ale is a real winner, packed with both bold flavor and subtle nuance ... and all at only 5.5%

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Hazy amber, a little fiery, huge pillowy white head, nice lacing.   Soft funked barnish nose.   A little sweat and old leather.   Dustry straw on the tongue.   Not very bright, or vibrant.   A little dull in fact.   Not as spicy as I would have hoped.   Good body tho.   Backside shows a little mealiness.   Decent beer, but not as exciting as some of their others.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Terrific meringue ivory tower thrones above the cloudy, very dark golden hue. Complex and aromatic ale with just a soft malt presence and a stronger fresh yeast presence that reminds of a dessert out of the oven. Crème fraîche anyone? Doughy bread? Meringue? basically makes you hungry. Dryish on the palate - convincing attenuation for an American example with a sandy, floral, leafy/spicy finish hinting at orange peel and pepper. Despite these finishing whispers, I would not call it generally spicy, in fact it may very well contain no spices as its yeast character is pretty rampant, we may even be talking of house character here, but I have not tried enough to have an idea. A brilliant American rendition in my opinion. Its expansive carbonation, foamy palate that does not bite and stunning looks feel most authentic. If anything, it could lose a bit of its overly protuberant ester notes that, at times, reminds of unripe tropical fruits - though it fortunately never reaches juiciness. I guess this is a price for fermenting at very high temperatures?
