Bottle from trade. Aroma of Belgian yeast, slight banana, and even slighter lager funk. Flavor is some white pepper, banana, and light bittering hops. Always an excellent palate from Daniel Carey's brews, even though they have odd slants for some genres. Still, a very good beer.

hazed gold body, white head, thick lacing.
wonderfully rustic yeast in the nose.
black pepper, starchy grains, mild dried banana.
silky texture and velvety carbonation.
dried banana and tropical fruit in low amounts.
strong calcium and mineral presence.
a wonderful unadulterated american-made saison.
Thanks to Steasy66 for the trade!
Pours a clear dark yellow under one of those soapy heads that leaves nice lace.
The aroma is a mix of fruit, herbs and lemon rind.
The flavor is lightly sweet and fruity with a very soft herbal dryness in the finish. Lively and spritzy. SrSilliGose (3331) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle thanks to phaleslu, NOT failslu. Thanks! Aroma of toasted toasted dough, wet grass, herbs. Taste is soft bitter herbal grass, rustic dough. High carbonation. More doughy than expected, but works. Nice beer. MacDouglass (88) - Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Aroma: alcohol, maybe some banana, barley, actually somewhat muted; Appearance: a ever so slightly hazy golden, bordering on orange, after the pour, the slightest ring of carbonation settles on the edges by the glass, good bubble action after the pour; Taste: some clove, some banana cream, something doughy, some citrus rind, quite complex, extremely tasty; Palate: something sweet lingers, decent bitter that lingers, good nose feel in the carbonation; Overall: I really like this beer, I can’t say exactly why, but I’m guessing its mostly because it tastes awesome and without any one flavor/aspect dominating, I’m not an expert taster by any means, but I swear that this beer is one of the more complex I’ve had in a while, I’d definately recommend it

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Big spicy/ fruity yeast nose. The flavor is spicy yeast and hops, sweet grains, fruity, yeasty. This is a solid saison. Very well crafted. Blairgus (4613) - California, USA - SEP 28, 2012
28 sept 2012, bottle. Faintly cloudy yellow. Nose is definitely saison; light coriander, white grape juice, straw. Thin body and lightly fizzy. Lemon rind and straw. Slightly sweet, twinge on lemon rind finish. b3shine (8873) - Indiana, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Bottle to snifter (thanks alexsdad06). Looks good; a semi-transparent orange with white lacing. Smells solid; tropical citrus with white pepper notes. Tastes the same with a nice mouthfeel. Good. gws57 (1276) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Had this one bottled thanks to Wyl! Saisons are just not my style, and this was not much different. GranvilleTim (1855) - Granville, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2012
slightly cloudy pour with a thick white head. Aroma is mild lemon and yeast. Taste is yeasty, little pepper, lemon at the end. A lot of flavore come at you at once.
