3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a very clear golden color with a moderate white head that disappears quickly. Nose has a lot of the traditional Belgian yeast in there, with a bit of banana, floral and citrus elements to it. Taste is very slightly sour, but has a remarkable amount of sweetness to it. Seems to me like much more of a Belgian ale than a saison.

On tap at bier thirty. Pours out a hazy straw topped with a fluffy white head. Nose is lemon citrus spice and some bread malts. Taste is as the nose with a nice sweet malt and a touch of spice.

On tap at Bier:Thirty, Boise at the Worthy Brewing Tap Tap Take-Over Hazy pale golden, witha small white skin. Lightly spicy bready aroma. Some citrus spics in the flavor and a cereal sweetness. A touch of lemon zest and just a hint of bitter at the end. Very nice, but 7%+ Saison ?!

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Was excited to see a saison on the draft list. Less excited when it finaly made its way to my table. Even less excited with every sip up til the time I decided I was not going to finish it. Just another poor-to-mediocre attempt here. My tasting notes: "never again".

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ridiculously hazy golden coloured body with a rich three centimetre tall pure white head. Aroma of alcohol, bananas, yeast, coriander seed and quite a bit of light fruit - oranges and bananas especially. Medium-bodied; good yeast flavour throughout with a herbal kick, some lighter coriander seed flavours and a bit of curacao. Aftertaste shows some nice herbal and grassy notes throughout with a little alcohol and a lot of yeast. Overall, a nice grassy and herbal beer with a ton of flavours from spices and yeast and less from malt and sugars. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon a few hours ago on 07-December-2013 for US$4.99 sampled in my hotel room here in Portland on 07-December-2013.

Cloudy orange pour with a white head. Light spicy aroma. Fuller flavour, starts like a pilsner but goes to a spicy, saison-y taste with a coriander finish.
