COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A unique version of the classic farmhouse ale. Whole Liberty hops are used to dry hop this beer. Citrus, earthy and complex, with a dry finish. A Wedge tribute to the art of Belgian brewing.

decaturstevo (5215) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 10, 2009
Aroma of apple, butter, and yeast from a slightly hazed gold pour with creamy white head and lace. A barnyard burlap/straw like earthy flavor with a sweet almost cloying finish. A little thin and watery but ok.

Shag (2638) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 8, 2009
This pour a golden color with a white head. The aroma contains some citrus like lemons, spices, and tangeriens. The flavor is also spicy with some tangeriens, lemons, and some alcohol showing through. Overall a nice beer.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2009
4/25/2009: Wedge Super Saison (8% ABV) pours a cloudy, dark gold color. It is sweet and malty with an interesting spice and a good body. This Saison is thick and pretty good overall. I tend to prefer the thicker, malty saisons like this one with a bit of sweetness and lighter on the spice, fruit, and funk.

Sample at Dark Lord Day 2009. Rating #16 for this beer.

Cornfield (5552) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2009
DLD 2009, thanks to [RBian ?]: It poured a hazy orange body with a slender white head. The aroma was tart tangerine, pink grapefruit, and a touch of honey. The flavor was much the same with the addition of a light herbal bitterness. I’m surprized at the higher ABV, but I s’pose the "Super" had to have some meaning.

Butters (3863) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Sampled at Springslicker’s Fish Fry ’09. Semi hazy orange pour with thin white head. Smells lightly funky, sweet grapefruit. Tangy orange flavor with a semi-bitter finish. Cool swingtop bottle. Thanks Phil!

jsh12bama (681) - Alabama, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Bottle. Pours orange with off white head. Aroma of honey and citrus. Taste is sweet with honey and pears. Decent.

daknole (9466) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2009
Another DLD sample. Amber pour. Light head. Honey notes and a lack of funky lead me away from the saison style. But the flavor is nice. It is a bit funky, but with more syrup and honey notes. There is a tartness in the beer. But more sweetness than anything. Not bad.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2009
Bottle at the ’09 Fish Fry. Pours light orange with whitish head, slowly-rising bubbles, and some winelike legs; I can tell it is sweeter than standard just by looking at it. The aroma is tangerine, some lemon zest, salt, a hint of wildflower honey, and some vinous notes. The flavor is very fruity, with some melon, honey, sage, and slight hops. A strong lime taste comes out as it gets warm. Over-the-top, but good. As sweet as it is, I’m not sure I could call it a saison.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 15/20
Suttree (5266) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2009
UPDATED: APR 27, 2009 Cloudy orange, slowly emerging white head. Nice aroma - mix of orange juice (my notes say "smells like Tang". I’m pretty sure that’s what I meant.) Also rhubarb? And kind of buttery, but not in a dyacetal way. Flavor is winey and herbal, with sweet, juicy notes mixed in. Palate seemed a bit syrupy, maybe some more time in the bottle would’ve dried it out. Good Stuff.
