Bottle via Joe. Pours an orange golden, good amount of white head. Yarrow and a dry openness in nose. Body really lively, flowers hit huge in finish fading into a grassy bitterness, crispness. Very nice.

Good floral and herbal saison. Roses, dusty peppery yeast and some very light citrus. A little thin without a lot of palate but the beer is still very good.

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.

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.
