3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Presumably Vintage 2012
Nice turbid amber with a solid 2-3 fingers of fluff. Smells spicy, some dandelion, some grain, yeast, a bit of malt and floral character. flavor is funky, water, some grain, some biscuit and a little bit of bitterness. Really empty body with moderate on hi carb. Very surprised how thin this feels. It’s an okay beer, but not nearly the caliber I expect from this brewery.

Bottle at our Thursday mini-tasting. Pours cloudy light amber with a medium white head, creamy with nice lacing. Aroma is floral, honey, herbal. Flavor is the same with little sweetness or bitterness, but a strong floral/herbal almost perfume sense. Finish is dry. Light body, bubbly carbonation. I enjoyed this one.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden color, lots off foam, good lacing. Very perfumey, flowery. Like delicious soap? Flavor is nicer, a little bitterness, a little sweet. Still, hard to get past the perfume like notes. Interesting, but not a favorite by any stretch.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a brightly hazed golden hue with a white head that lasted through. Tree bark, lemon lime zest, and an earthy floral aroma. First thing I noticed in flavor was the juicy hops and the dry finish. The complex flavors changed throughout the bottle. What a fantastic Saison.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by Hoppypocket, thanks! Pours a hazy golden with a small white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is fresh, floral and full of belgian yeast. Taste is fruity with a weird bitterness (did they bitter this with the dandelions or some other herbs that are in there?). Higher carbonation level, prickly even. A bit too much for me I think. Overall the beer was good/great but I believe the carbonation killed it a little for me.

Bottle (750 ml). Shared by hoppypocket, thanks! Hazy straw color with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma of farmhouse yeast along with spicy and floral notes. Taste is yeasty with some spiciness/peppery notes and interesting floral presence. Light to medium body. Lively carbonation. Slightly dry. Good spicy Saison. This bottle was 1+ year old, I would be curious to try it fresh.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle shared with Tom and chums. Pours an opaque yellowish orange with a resilient white head. Aroma is floral, oldish, grains, grapefruits. Flavor is peach, pear, fresh cereals. Finish is floral,oldish, barn, with a good, hoppy punch (grapefruit). Lingering dusty-oldish flavor from what I believe to be the yeast. Light body, medium to strong carbonation. Very good saison.
