On tap at Big Texas Beer Fest. Golden with a white head. The aroma and flavor have some biscuit malt as well as some Belgian yeast notes. I also get a hint of orange citrus as well as some very light earthy funk notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Cloudy pale yellow, with a nice white head. Smells nicely spicy and herbal, with a decent citrus hop note. Flavor is pretty much the same, with an appealing dryness throughout. Pretty tasty, I can see myself drinking a bunch of this..

12oz bottle from Wegman’s, Buffalo. A hazy amber pour with a ring of white head; yeasty aroma with perhaps a hint of spice; clean citrus taste; with some quinine-like bitterness, and lingering citrus to finish. A good refresher.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2013 (Draught) clearish bright gold, lasting soapy white bubbles and decent lacing. Nose is earthy, rose water, Czech/noble hops. Taste is peppercorns, earthy, bit soapy, light earthy bitterness that also lingers on the palate, rye or some other spicy component. Interesting but too spicy and earthy.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at BBE. Pours clearish gold with light to medium head and lacing. Notes of wit bier, coriander, pepper and too much spice. This one was way more of a belgian white then a saison. Medium to heavy carbonation. Not a big fan.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear and bright straw gold body with a one inch frothy white head that faded to a thin wispy film. The nose comes across as a bit overly spiced with some nice perfume like qualities, light hay, and floral hops. The flavor is a bit too spicy and peppery for my tastes, there’s not much malt or softness from the yeast. It’s very light and thin in texture with fizzy prickly carbonation. I suppose that it is pretty sessionable, but it’s really not what I want from a Saison at all. It comes across as too clean and sterile with too much of the flavor derived from added spices instead of from a good Saison yeast.
