Tap. Poured a hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy, rye and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy yeast bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a friend.

Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a clear dark amber orange color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, malt and ripe fruit. Medium body with flavors of peppery yeast, stone fruit and rye malt. The finish is fruity up front with a mildly bitter spiced rye aftertaste. Above average overall. douglas88 (9176) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 4, 2013

Draft to snifter. Looks good; a semi-transparent amberish-brown with foamy off-white head. Smells solid; bubblegum, spice, and dough. Tastes like it smells with some banana. Good on the palate with a nice rye tingle. A really good saison. JaBier (7958) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JAN 30, 2013

Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a caramel-brown color with a medium sized creamy tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet honey, bread and faint golden fruits. The flavor was very sweet sugar, honey, tangy candied golden fruits, strong bread and hints of pepper and rye. Long tangy sugar and bread finish. Full bodied and smooth. Well done. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2012

On tap at the bocktown. Usually I have a feel for saison but this stuff is more like an IPA er sumthin. Smell is sweet perfume and that turns out to be the best thing about this brew. Strong and bitter, right from the start. There is a tad of ruitiness inthere. Look is a darker brew. with it mostly being yellow with a tad of orange. Pretty much a flat brew. Has a warming effect going down the gullet. Finish is medium bitter linger, yes, more like those rye brews that come across like an IPA. Not much detectable saison here, IMHO.
