3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
opened with a loud "psst" and was expecting an overflow, thankfully none. an orange oak color with an initial very large head that diminishes quickly to lacing, very small bubbles. strong black pepper aroma and taste with good traditional yeast spices. a very nice example.
5oz on tap at Cat’s Den. Interesting aroma up front. toasted fish skin, some caramel, toast malt, bit of graininess. Mild spice and pepperiness. Moderate to bigger bitterness. Lighter to moderate sweet. Nice mild dry finish. Clear kinda darker orange color. Thin off-white head. Some loose ropes of lace. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. An alright, kind of maltier, caramelly saison

Bottle found in the rolling farmland hills of Belgian southern Ohio. Cloudy straw color, fine white head, solid lacing. Aroma of white pepper, citrus, butter. Taste is peppery and herbal lemon butter. Pretty grim. Get it! Haha. snoworsummer (6273) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 21, 2013
From a bottle. Pours hazy orange copper with a frothy who the head. Tastes very much like citrus, herbs, spices, tart and sour. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like malt, musk, light sourness, and light bitternes.

Poured from a bomber directly delivered from the brewer batch#17.Said to sit on it a bit as he knew it would be highly carbonated and flavor would improve over a couple of months.
Poured golden amber with a thin head.
Scent of grassy hops & sweet yeast?
Taste is floral & hoppy. Nice mixture.
A bit too carbonated as the head on this brew almost overflowed the glass.
Overall a better than average Saison greatly enjoyed with a Rueben sandwich. bottleforager (3211) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Bottle thanks to Jstax ! Pours a nice golden color with a big foamy head. Lots of grainy earthiness, spicy peppered yeast, citrus and a grassy bitterness on the finish. Nothing crazy but a solid saison offering ! Dogbrick (14300) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Sample from batch #6 at the HSC July 4th beer tasting. Pours a clear bright gold-copper color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops and citrus. Medium-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, yeast and grapefruit. The finish is spicy with a grassy hops aftertaste. Above average overall.
