Pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head. Smells of spices of cinnamon, clove, coriander, lemons, and grass. Coriander overwhelms the palate with cinnamon, clove, lemon grass. The fiinsh is rather spicey.

Refrigerated bottle poured into a shaker. Taste was herbal and lots of chamomile. I don’t really like this one.

Reviewed from notes. Poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy yellow color with a bit of a light apricot hue. White head that doesn’t persist for long. The nose is...whoa. There is a lot going on. It’s all a bit too much and I don’t think everything comes together at all. I get some lemon, tea, flowers, chamomile, grass, and a bit of grain. The taste worsens this as there is a weird sort of bitterness from all these earthy, plant-like flavors. Feel is a bit astringent. In the end, I really did not enjoy this.

Wow, just wow. I was stoked to find this awful tick in my friends fridge. Bottled 11/19/10. I had this when it was fresh but I didn’t review it. Also back then I didn’t know anything about saisons. A- This is a pretty dark saison. Deep amber red. Short head with slouchy lacing. S- Weird. Butter, toffee, salt, pepper, hay and a weird funky earthiness. T- A mish-mash of damp spices and mold. A strange butteriness comes in toe with cheese. This finish is bizarre and alarming. M- Very, very dry. I need some water.

Light gold color with small head. Aroma and flavor are pretty weak, but still have nice light hoppy and bretty notes with some faint fruitiness. It’s okay
