3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an amber color with a white head. Herbal aroma of sage and elderberry with a nice malt sweetness. A hint of lemon, some white pepper, and a hint of yeast. The flavor is really dominated by the sage. A nice sweetness from it which pairs nicely with a bready sweetness, some citrus, and yeast. A light pepper note, a bit of berry, and a light tartness on the finish.
Really cool and unique herbal mix here. The aroma and flavor both pop, and the combo of farmhouse yeast, herbs and dark malts works well. fiulijn (21274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2013

Draught at TND: Complex aroma of malt, sage, honey, and spices. Aroma is too complex. Poured deep amber/orange in color with a small, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Slightly hazy. Sparkling. Very complex flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of lemon/lime, malt, spices, cinnamon, cardamom, light candi sugar, simple syrup, and sprite. Medium body. Lively to average carbonation. Malt, candi sugar, spice, lemon/lime finish. 7.5%ABV is completely hidden throughout. Goodgrief (2059) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - DEC 29, 2011
Sampled on tap at Pinocchio’s. Dark amber pour...it smells like Listerine. A sip...man, it tastes like Listerine. Spiced and medicinal. A saison? Whatever. It’s awful. Reminds me of 3F Rabid Rabbit, or whatever it’s called. Truly awful.

Draft. Dark amberish color, off-white head. Sweet malt, lots of spice and herbs going on in this beer, fruit, some grass, and grain. The beer is quite different with spiced, almost too much spice for my taste. Maverick34 (3304) - New York, USA - OCT 24, 2010
