4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml Bottle. Upon opening, the beer couldn’t wait to get out of the bottle. It was a good thing I was paying attention, because it was coming out whether or not I was going to pour it. It poured a nice orange color with a big fluffy head. The aroma was spicy, floral, and yeasty. A great bitter flavor that is full of spicy yeast. Very dry, which I enjoy a lot. A great beer that would go great on a hot day.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lemon orange zest and tropical fruits along with ginger-like spiciness in the fresh and appealing nose. Very hazy golden body is topped by a meringue-like white head that sticks to the sides of the glass and lasts throughout. Plenty of floral notes with ginger and honey in the flavour. Bitterness is quite notable and lingering but there is a certain sweetness up front that is intense if short-lived. Medium light body is quite dry with strong crisp carbonation that wakes up the tongue and insides of the cheek. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle purchased at Brewery Creek in April 2010.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2011 Hazy gold with a monstrous head. If care is not taken to perform an extremely gentle pour, a furious and unruly head will take over like a storm in the glass. Vibrant nose ... very floral, with light spice and slight funk. Flavor is savory herbs and edible flowers ... all held together by a tenuous malt body. The ’extreme’ carbonation turns out to be very soft and makes for a smooth, light mouthfeel. Subtle and elegant ... with a nicely dry and herbaceous finish. If you ever wanted to ’drink flowers’ ... this is your brew. Lovely.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good, whipped eggwhtie-like head, stable over hazy orange-amberish beer, well-carbonated. Very floral nose indeed, bit of honey and vegetal acids. Spicy, wild fruit, and fermented honey, as very watered-down mead. Dry apples, wry ones. Medicinal/ginger flavour with every new sip. Refreshing, spritzy summerdrink. Tastes more alcoholic than expected from its claimed ABV. Nice, very drinkable but not really special light beer. But definitely rare - many thanks to DonS!

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a murky honey-amber (lots of fine sediment), with a huge, pillowy white head. Really, really nice aroma. I could smell this one all day long. Rich floral hops, a bit of grapefruit and nectarine, backed by a sweetness that’s lighter than caramel - clover or honeysuckle, maybe. Flavor is very floral/herbal at first, then bitters out into a dry citrus hop, finishing with more of a wheat/grain note. The flavor isn’t quite so pleasing as the aroma, but this is a really nice brew overall.

750, capped. Thanks, for the legwork, Scrizzz! Before I say anything else, let me please say that I can’t even think the name of this beer in a normal tone of voice. Even in my head, it sounds like Sting singing "Driven to Tears." Now that song will be stuck in my head for four days. Thank you, Upright. Pours a clear medium gold with tons of rising carb, a big eggy head that sticks around for a bit, and tons of sheeting sedimentary lace. Dandelions, grass, and flowers on the nose, just spectacular. A little bit of tangy herbal hop as well. Beautifully conceived and executed aromatics. Creamy medium body with plenty of lively carb. Caramel, edible flowers, hay, grass, and a little bit of dark sugar on the mid palate. Lingering caramel and floral finish. Lovely stuff.

750ml capped from Upright. Pours a beautiful bright hazy golden with a perfect 3 finger head. Amazing nose of sweet apricot, peach, honeysuckle, flowers, hay, peppercorns...really great nose! Lightly sweet peach...including skin...earthy wheat, sweet peppercorn with lively carbonation. Really nice and I wish I had a couple more bottles.

Bottle:   Hazy straw, grapefruit hues, large foamy white head, enjoyable lacing.   Strong floral nose, pansies, sweet peas, and pixie stix dust.   Reminds me quite a bit of Southampton Cuvee des Fleurs.   Amazing aroma.   A little more subdued on the tongue, floral yet wheaty.   Not as bright as other Saisons.   A little more farmouse/barnish.   Light, clean, with a very soft floral finish.   Could stand to be a bit bubblier and also spicier, but as is its a unique American made Saison.   Definitely worth a try!
