750ml corked and caged. Pours slighly hazy golden yellow, with a decent sized off white head. Aromas of citrus fruit, hops, yeast. Flavors also citrus, yeast, and spices with a semi bitter finish. Definitely some sourness kicking around buit not overpowering at all. A very nice offering.

Very complex indeed. Fruity esters dominate, heavy on the white grapes, apples, white peach with a basement air dankness. Pours a clear golden with a huge white pillowy head. Some stickiness left behind as it recedes. A zingy champagne like pour, both in head size and effervesence. Nicely carbonated. Flavors of fresh grapes, faint traces of tart apples, pears, and yeast. Medium body, mildly sweet, and tart with a welcomed dry finish. Superb.

Bottle. Pale golden honey-like color with a very active fluffy, lacey white head. Aroma of citrusy fruit(orange, lemon, not like citrusy hops though) and sour musty funk. Flavor was tart and mildly sour, fruity. It didn’t have as much peppery spiciness as I like, but good nonetheless.

Pours hazy golden orange with a huge frothy head. Aroma of citrus, spice, and yeast. Light and hoppy. Tatse a bit grassy. Good beer. Initially had an odd aftertatse, but went away after sitting a few minutes. Good beer.

Amazing creation of a Saison style beer. Afterall the brewer is known for his books of Saison beers. He obviously knows what he’s doing. Lots of frothy bubbles created the head. Major carbonation filled the glass keeping it alive. Smelled of begian yeast and citrus fruits. Light on the mouthfeel and very refrehing. Pleasant spices linger on the aftertaste. One of the best American Saisons made.

strangaj (250) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2007
A little on the bitter side for my taste and left a bit of a nasty aftertaste as well. Not the best Saison I’ve encountered and I’d consider it a bit overrated. Go for the Dupont Avec les Bons Voeux instead

This is a very solid, unassuming saison that pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a big frothy head and is reminiscent, in many ways, of Ommegang’s Hennepin, although not quite as good. You get a bit of lemon and belgian yeast on the nose, and those flavors are predominate upon tasting. The hops come through, but not on the same level as with Hennepin. I like it, but I’d prefer a 4-pack of Hennepin for about the same price as a 750 of this.

Citrus flavor with a lot of fluffy white head and a hazy yellow body. Another goody from Southampton.

fear025 (214) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Aroma:Smells like coriander, lemon zest, yeast, soap. Pretty much like I would expect a good saison to smell like. Appearance:Clear golden colored beer with enormous head filled with white fluffy bubbles. Taste:It’s rather sweet for a saison. There’s some coriander, clove, ginger, and soap. Tons of complexity, and no off flavors. Palate:Light to medium body. It tingles my tongue somewhat, more so than just the carbonation, which is also good. Overall:This is a wonderful saison with lots of great flavors and complexity.
