Growler picked up at the brewpub and shared with the Boise geeks tonight... Pours a slightly hazed golden brew with a decent enough white head... Pear and white peppercorn in the nose... Light pale malt has some hints of peppery phenol and underripe pear ester... Pretty proper Saison... One of the best beers I had in my recent MT trip.

Growler pour thanks to Toby. Pours out a cloudy golden topped with a small white head. Nose is wet straw bread malts spice and some tart. Taste is more of the straw bread malts and spice. beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - SEP 10, 2013
On tap. Hazy pale yellow pour with a white head. Scent is citrus, spices and pepper. Taste is fruity and yeasty. jake65 (3701) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - OCT 25, 2010
Tap @ brewpub. Pours a little darker yellow/orange than the La Grisette with a finger of creamy beige head. Nice aroma is fruity, yeast, peppery, and hints of cloves. Full flavor is a balance of lemon zest, citrus, corriander, yeast, wheat, and again hints of pepper. Really quite excellent. As far as I can remember, this is the best saison I’ve had on-tap while visiting a brewpub. Cheers! Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Tap at GABF 09. Pours a hazy golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is lemony- soap, lemongrass and citrus zest, peppery phenolics along with cardamon and lavendar-like flowers. Flavor is doughy bready crisp malts, a bit DMS, flowers and spices dominate though and make it a bit messy oily and soapy- flavor and finish are a bit sweet.

(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy pale yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of orange peel, coriander, chamomile, and pepper. Flavor of chamomile, coriander, yeast, citrus, and some apple. kyzr (1551) - Montana, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Hazy gold pour with nice sized white head. Floral and spice on the nose. Coriander and citrus hit first on the flavor then hints of yeast and pepper towards the back. Nice mouth feel with a creamy texture. Very nice beer on a warm summer day. JK (6162) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUN 15, 2008
Thanks to Skyview for this one. Cloudy gold color. Impressive, but unnecessary packaging that I’m sure raised the price. Coriander and wheat in the aroma. Flavor is a little sour with Belgian yeast, light spice including more coriander, and wheat. I like this. sthlm (790) - Blank, Alabama, USA - JUN 3, 2008
[Bottle, thanks for sharing, Skyview!] Pours hazy gold with a small white head. Aroma is citrus, coriander and a decent amount of yeast. Taste is lightly bitter with coriander showing through strongly, but also the yeast and some other spiciness in there. Medium mouthfeel with a pretty good finish. Overall it is a pretty good saison, but it really didn’t do anything to set itself apart from others that I have tried. islay (2775) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Small sample at OSLO and Guerde’s tasting on Friday, 5-23-08. Bottle #53, 2007 vintage. Thanks to Skyview for sharing. Pours a hazy blonde. Very dry, vegetal, sharp aroma with pepper and a touch of honey. Nice, dry taste that resembles the aroma. Good, long, dry aftertaste. Very pleasant. Medium body. Frothy in the palate.
