Pale golden color, hazy body, steady carbonation, and a one finger thick head looked very good in the tulip glass. The aroma was quite rustic, with smell of lavender, lemon, green pepper, and coriander. The taste showcased the floral character up front, with a slightly sweeter notes dominating art first before turning lemony, tart, and dry. Finish had a flourish of white peppercorns as well as bittering hops. The body was light and airy, and overall the beer was very quenching.

Victoryís version. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a foamy 2-finger white head that leaves very little lacing. Aroma is odd... reminds me of lemons, wet hay and spices. Taste is very malty with a barrage of spices. Good light mouthfeel with lots of carbonation. Very diferent, and I am not sure if I will ever buy this again.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours very cloudy golden amber color with a 1 finger fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big lemon, pear, pepper, clove, sage, thyme, rosemary, floral, grass, and earthy yeast spiciness. Very nice aromas with good complexity and balance of the malt/spices. Taste of lemon, pear, pepper, clove, thyme, sage, parsley, floral, grass, cracker, earth, and yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of lemon, pear, clove, pepper, grass, earth, herbs, and yeast spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of the herbal flavors, with nice malt balance; and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a lightly slick and very crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice herbal saison style. very nice balance and complexity of the flavors; and very smooth to sip on. Really enjoyed this one, very well done.

Pours a vibrant golden color with a medium-sized white head that leaves some lacing. Nice aromas of herbs, grass and fruit (mostly peach). Flavors consisting of the same. Medium-bodied with a sweet finish. Quite a nice saison.

sfontain (802) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2012
12 oz bottle, Victory version. Up front, this is not a style Iím particularly familiar with even after 550 ratings. Pours a pale straw with a medium white head that dissipates quickly into a paper-thin coating over half the top of the liquid; very minimal lacing; not particularly attractive, visually speaking. Aroma has a strange spicy yeasty bready sourness with white grape. Flavor has the same sourdough thing going on, with an astringent, liquid-facewash-esque finish. Hard to believe this is pushing 7% ABV, and while this isnít a bad drinking beer, when you get down to it thereís really no single element of it thatís terribly appealing. This might be a different story in another 1,000 beers, but I just canít pick out all the individual interesting herbs they used to brew this stuff.

12oz bottle. Pour was a golden color, half a finger of white head and mild carbonation. Aroma of hops, citrus, yeast and some spice. Mouth is moderately bitter, very sweet and fruity. Orange and lemon. Refreshing and fairly light. Nice.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a nice, translucent gold with a one finger width head of white foam. The aroma is grassy, herbal, and sweet. The taste is sweeter than that of the Dogfish Head rendition and quite a bit cleaner. A bit more enjoyable as well.
