Appearance is clear yellow with a thin white head. Great aroma of vegetables, pale malts, and grass. Taste has a lot of lemon, with some grapefruit. Vegetable and grass are also present. A good amount of herbal spices. Overall pretty good! I liked the dogfish head version, and this is about as good.

HonkeyBra (3235) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Golden orange pour with a very slight head. Aroma of spruce, herbs, some citrus. Light pale malts and a bit of earthy fresh grass. A bit of mint too with some dough. Flavor is herbal, decently bitter, with light doughy sweetness. Lively carbonation over a light to medium bodied. Finishes very bitter. Pretty nice, on par with the Dogfish head version.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Bottle: Pours a transparent bright golden with a spotty-lacing ring of white head. Has a fresh herbal and grapefruity hoppy nose with a hint of lightly biscuity sweet malt. Starts with good fullness and a touch of doughy sweetness with a nice fresh resiny citrus hop balance and bitterness with a floral lemongrass and black pepper complexity. An enjoyable and quite drinkable saison.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear liquid yellow gold with a small white head that quickly fades. Aroma of lemongrass, ginger, saison spices, parsley and sage. Taste of parsley, sage, ginger, lemongrass, citrus and yeast. Nice summer brew.

20100901 12oz bottle from State Line. Clear dark golden with small but lingering sudsy head. Aroma is mostly hoppy with lots of sweet and orangey citrus, some herby sage and bay, and hints of fresh red bell pepper. Mouthfeel is a bit light with underwhelming carbonation that doesn’t quite scream saison. Light yeasty phenols, bubblegum, dill, mint, are overcome by resinous and citrus hops. It’s actually a pretty tasty beer, but seems a stretch to call it a saison -- maybe more Belgian IPA. In fact, it reminds quite a bit of the delicious though somewhat more aggressive Flying Dog Mad Bitch. Finishes somewhat sweetly and limp, with only ghosts of herbal and resinous hops lingering.

The new droid app is way better.... clear pale yellow, small head... very herbal nose, big aroma of thyme... flavor profile follows suit, w a ton of drying hops, very very herbal... medium bodied, spiciness makes it bigger....

Bottle from the bottle shop. Pours a clear gold, thin white head. I love the aroma, sage, hops, herbs, and hay. Flavor is similar, but less spiced, more bread and sweetness. Tasty Saison.
