4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home, all for myself. Pour is a glowing, golden honey color with a huge, frothy white head, that seems to want to stick around for quite a while. Really nice sticky lacing on the rim of my Dry Dock tulip. Floral hops, band-aid, herbs, medicinal characteristics, honey, hay, and fresh cut grass in the aroma. Taste is herbal and medicinal, balanced nicely with light spice and floral notes; nice band-aid, straw, and earthy notes on the backed. Medium body with high carbonation. A ton of flavor in this beer and it is highly sessionable. Nice Saison!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750. Pours a light slightly hazy golden with small white head. Aroma is really nice floral spicy, some honey and herbal notes, orange light citrus. Flavor starts sweet with lots of floral notes, slowly giving way to the spice and northwestern hop character into a dry and lightly bitter finish. Medium body and sharp carbonation. Excellent beer

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 9/30/12 from a capped 750mL bottle picked up in Oregon by unclejedi, thanks to Jim. Pours clear orange with a very thick white head that slowly recedes to smooth, average lace. The nose is spicy saison yeast with some light bread malt, a green hoppy note that I recognize, and a somewhat herbal note that I don’t. The flavor is the same, nice and spicy saison yeast, plenty dry, and the herbal note with a nice touch of sourness on the back end and a hint of white peppercorn. The body is light with sparkling active carbonation and a long spicy yeast and lightly sour finish.

Similar to Stillwater Cellar Door and Southampton Cuvée des Fleurs. Taste is dry, thicker biscuit, very rich with chamomile, mild sweet cream butter, light lactic sourness. Palate is thick, refreshing, fresh biscuit with orange marmalade. Garden herb and cone hop bitterness to balance. Gorgeous stuff.
