3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 mL bottle from Rouses Market in New Orleans, Louisiana, served in a wine glass. Pours hazy amber with a moderate, fluffy off-white head. The head remains and leaves a small amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are notes of lemon, grapefruit, apple and grape, along with honey, pale malts and Belgian yeast. The flavour is moderately sweet, with honey, citrus and Belgian yeast. The finish is long and malty with citrus rind. On the palate, it is medium in body with a dryish texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice saison. It is nicely complex and very enjoyable to drink. Worth another try. 2012-04-29

Bottle. Pale gold in colour, with a decently-sized, white, head. Light grains, floral hops yeasty, stone fruits, a touch of lemon sharpness, leading to a dryish finish. Good. UM02 (381) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2017
Very nice farm house ale, pleasant malty body with a lot of complex flavours in the body. The sorachi hops have a presence but are a bit mild. A very good well balanced beer. Not a mind blower for me but a solid brew. mhuntsman (21) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - DEC 2, 2017

Aroma 9/10: very bright aroma with lemon on the forefront.
Appearance 4/5: bright gold color with a sticky white head.
Palate 4/5: Solid carbonation and relatively dry finish.
Taste 9/10: Fantastic blend of yeasty goodness and bright citrus flavors. Not really traditional, but I dig it.
Overall 18/20: Far from a traditional saison, but an excellent beer all the same.

Pours hazy hazy gold with a short bubbly white head. Aroma is grassy, lemon, yeast ester. Sparkly mouthfeel and a taste that follows the aroma but with a balanced hoppy bitterness and a semi sweet linger. A bit of funk throughout. I am not a big saison drinker, but this is a good one.
