3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at old toad rochester. Clear pale ambet with small head, little retention. Nose had light spice, pepper, and malt in nose. Taste is big spice, corriander, pepper, flowery hops dry on the finish. Crisp and enjoyable after an interesting day on the job.
Bought @ De Caigny.
Ok Saison. Lemongrass and mediterranean herbes in aroma. Citric in taste. Yeast is there. Palate is a tad soapy. Michael27 (2359) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 18, 2017
Frisch vom Hahn im Stone Berlin. Goldamber mit wenig Schaum. Geniale Komposition der Gewürzaromen. Frisch und süffig. willisread (3651) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 2, 2017
Bottle from Red Spirits & Wine. Pours a deep gold with a fluffy finger of head that lingers. Herbal nose, with pear and apple notes, a touch of floral aromas as well. Pink peppercorn, dried pear and more herbal grass. Lingering pear sweetness with a peppercorn. Expectations exceeded. beer-yum (1890) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 6, 2017
Funky floral aroma in a light gold pour. A surprisingly full sweet and spicy body is followed by a surprisingly zesty finish. A decidedly big beer - too big (for the style) maybe? fidelis83 (2509) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - AUG 23, 2017
Hazy pale gold with a one finger bright white head and a high effervescence. Aroma is sage, rosemary, mint, thyme, cereal, a bit of bread, citrus, white peaches. Flavor is sweet pale caramel, wheat, toast, lots of rosemary, light sage, some thyme, hints of cereal, and some earthy and floral hops. Medium body, slightly syrupy, medium, sharp carbonation. Good stuff overall, I’d say it’s a solid Saison, with some odd, but bearable, kinda tasty spice additions.

Light gold almost lager like. Heady. Aroma is off beefjerky with saison barnyard leather and Bottled 6 mo ago. On sale for 5$ a 4 pack. Has some lemon and orange flavors with the herbal and beefjerky. Lot of citrus and saison spices and a bit of funk. Ill admit the herbs used sounded gross, its mainly in aroma it seems. Not bad for a style I dont go for but its off. shobramberg (27) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 30, 2017
Saison du Buff pours a transparent cobalt yellow with a white, creamy head. Upfront aromatics include herbs and spices with sweeter, subtler melon notes at the end. It has a medium mouthfeel and semi-metallic lingering finish. The dry taste is reeled in by the herbs and spices. True to saison form, it’s a funky beer deserving of a pour whenever the collaboration comes about. Dorkenstein (564) - - JUL 8, 2017
Barnyard funk aromas with orange zest and lemon lime too. Taste is similar to aromas with a touch of sweet malt. balloonbuffoon (605) - - JUN 20, 2017
12floz single bottle, no freshness date present, paid about $3, and poured contents into a tulip glass. Body is yellow and sparkling that keeps a constant frothing head. Very nice aroma of lemon, herbs (rosemary and parsley most prominent), and mild cheesy funk. I really cannot think of anything to overly critique, other than it is just excellent. Yet it is not the ultimate ale. Light bodied considering the alcohol content, very versatile for whatever the moment. Herbs take center stage, which are properly supported by a grassy graininess. This beer pleases me. vincentvega72 (886) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2017
Goudgeel, licht troebel bier met fijne witte schuimkraag. Kruidig aroma (salie, rozemarijn, lichte eucalyptus). Deze gedronken bij 30° en dan smaakt deze zeer verfrissend. Citrus, beetje menthol, en vooral rozemarijn verweven met een saison-smaak. Lange licht droge afdronk die goed blijft hangen. Doet mij wel ergens denken aan de Tre Fontane trappist. Mooi bier.
