COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Starting with a base of German wheat & pale malts this crisp slightly hazy foundation was then accented with a blend of Sterling & Citra hops providing a intricate blend of herbal grass & tangerine citrus flavors and aroma. to pull this all together and to complete the cleansing aspect of my vision i gently finished the ale off with a touch of white sage, lending a mild earthy spice character to the blend. of course lets not forget our house saison yeast that brought all the elements together leaving a dry yet intricate finish.

mcberko (15432) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2011
Sampled from bottle at PIB, pours hazy / murky yellow with a small white head. Aroma of barnyard funk, sort of a pot-like quality, lemon zest and dry-like character. Flavour is very dry fruits, lemon zest, yeast, with a dry palate and a funky / yeasty finish. Wonderful saison.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2011
(Bottle) Pours hazy dark yellow with a white head. The aroma holds soft sweet citrus (tangerine, lemon and lime), coriander/spices, cracker-like malt, light phenols and incense. Undertones of wheat, wet grass, wet asphalt, clove, white pepper, salvia, mint, lavender, matchstick, earth (maybe barnyard), dust and flower shop. The nose is perfect in balance. A light touch of yellow fruit/pineapple and pear esters as the beer gets warmer. Super dirty in a rather clean way. The flavor is dusty dry, light bitter and light acidic. Tones of flowers, herbs, spices, citrus, subtle fruits, crackers, dust, wet stone and light incense smoke. The mouthfeel is clean, dusty and soft with a medium crisp carbonation. The finish holds numbing spices, dust, wheat, yeast, fancy hops, tangerines and crackers. Medium bodied. For me this beer is a perfect symbol of what is wrong with the ratebeer community - a fantastic beer without the epithet Imp o Barrel-whatever will never be an evergreen on the top 50 list (let him who is without sin cast the first stone). Anyhow, as the kids say: OMG! just as ass kicking as a good white whine.

[email protected] Hoppy Loft: very hazy yellow beer with white head, lots of citrus hops in the nose but also some spices, sweet & fruity with lots of bittering citrus hop & some sweet apricots, complete hop bomb, decent amount of yeast & some minor spice, very different from Belgian saisons in my opinion but definitely great stuff, dry finish

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JUL 8, 2011
Hazed and confused, is it gold or is it yellow. Tall lasting head. Heavily spiced on the nose. Thick and malty with nice acidity and moderate bittering. This brew is heavily spiced with notes of citrus, stonefruit, herbs, and perfume. The finish is dry with a little heaviness. This brew sets like lard on a wet burro plate from Jonpolobertos on Van Buren st. Rich and filling.

after4ever (7719) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUL 8, 2011
750, capped and foiled. Pours a very slightly hazy medium gold with a towering, nearly unmanageable foamy white head. Decent eggy lace. Big orangey nose, smells almost like orange juice. Definitely get a minty sage note. Creamy medium body with fairly well contained carb. Orange, tangerine, and mint on the mid palate. Sweet citric savory finish. Nice stuff.

drowland (7917) - Georgia, USA - JUL 6, 2011
6/6/11. 750mL bottle. Hazy light orange pour with a big off-white head that lasts and laces like crazy. Funky, yeasty aroma with touches of herbal aspects and tart citrus fruits. Bitter, herbal, slightly meaty aspect up front with a touch of tart lemon in the middle and a dry, yeasty linger. Very high carbonation. Not bad!

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 4, 2011
(750ml bottle from Total Wine Tempe). Pour cloudy yellow-orange with a white head. Aroma has sage, lemon and some wheat. Taste is sweet that follows the aroma. After having Saison Du Buff I was concerned that the sage would be overpowering, but they use finesse here. Medium bodied with an oily texture. Light bitter finish. Nice job with using the sage and balancing it with the saison characteristics.
