jcr (2779) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 10, 2017
Bottle. Clear golden body (first glass); hazy deep golden body (second glass). Fizzy white head, diminishing. Aroma of toasted grain, banana, light basement dankness, raw grain, citrus. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic. Medium body, watery/sticky/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. The taste of banana and sugar are particularly assertive. Combine that with the syrupy, slightly chalky body, and you wind up with a, well, not what I think of as a saison. Nothing delicate or nuanced here. Disappointing.

willisread (3703) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 26, 2017
Bottle from Craft Brewed shared on Thanksgiving. Pours a clearish copper with a big foamy head that lingers. Lots of earthy aromas, fresh soil, hay, manure, overripe orange and grass. Clean and crisp on the palate, with some mineral notes. Some malt sweetness mid-palate that moves into a dry finish. Good carbonation throughout. Maybe a tad boozy, but overall really well done. Another great drop from Blackberry Farm.

Bottle from Beer Gonzo, shop, Earlsdon, Coventry, consumed at home Thursday 2nd November 2017 in the company of Lynn and Barry cooking Roasted Chicken with Clementine and Ouzo. Pours hazy mid gold with a white head that swiftly departs. It's got a little softness, a very good saison, dry finish, spicy yeast, this is a lovely beer. A7 A4 T9 P4 Ov17 4.1
