3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a pale golden amber with a small white head. The aroma is spices, belgian yeast, and herbs. The taste is dry with notes of strong herbs and spices. Overall, a pretty weak saison that’s certainly too heavy on the spices. I definitely expect more from all breweries involved in this collaboration.
On tap at The Upper Lip. Crystal clear yellow with a bright white head. Aroma is herbs and some lemon. Fruity and a bit perfumy with moderate carbonation. Interesting, but the herbal mix begins to get a little off as the beer warms. phoner2 (64) - Racine, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2017
Light, refreshing slightly sweet with great malt balance, perfumed band-aid finish. Palme (5006) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2017
On tap @ City Swiggers. This is a mildly cloudy orange golden colored one with a small bright white head that’s lacing quite hefty on the top. Smells really good actually. Really fruity with nectarine, peaches, apricots, some mild lemonic sourness and a little bit of orange zest. A lovely nose. Tastes superb also. Wittiash kinda wheat sweet. It’s mild oily on the texture and just about average on the carbonation. Lots of nice zesty flavors her. It’s getting zest, spices, grapefruit zest. It has mid ripe strawberries and wheat. A delicious refreshing one. I would not mid to repeat. 18.06.2015 UncleKorm (1337) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 25, 2017

Poured into a tulip, this one sat about a hazy burnt golden color with a thin finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Moderate lace. Clingy speckled lace.
The aroma had some lemon peel, sly breadiness, piney hops. Oregano/herbal sweetness. White pepper settles in for the balance.
The flavor leans to the bready sweetness initially, but the herbal arrangements enter in nicely semi-sweet with a delving bready sweet aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body with a fair sessionability about it. Low carbonation leading into a sweet stickiness flowing over my tongue.
Overall, pretty good saison that I would have again.

BB backlog, Bottle, pours a hazy golden with one finger white head. Smell and taste were lemon skin, bread, spice, pine hop and other various malts. Light to medium in body. Comparable to the other version in the series. jrodooo5 (1775) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JUL 11, 2016
Delicious & unique saison! Transparent gold pour w/ a quickly fading white head & not much lacing. The aroma is rather earthy w/ piney notes really standing out. The taste is spot on to the aroma as the piney flavors really make this interesting. There’s a little bit of a hop presence & the more traditional peppery undertone. Good stuff!

Thyme and rosemary aromas with some lemon zest, clementines, and cracked wheat. Taste is cracked wheat, clementines and lemon citrus, some pepper, thyme and rosemary. damzz (558) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Pours a clear yellow with a thick white head with little lacing. The nose is herbal slightly resinous.The body is full. The taste is slight saison yeast and resinous. 12 oz bottle Bottled 2/18/15. drsordr (2984) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2016 Bottle pour side by side with the other producers pour light gold with large white head, even for 4 year old bottle. Nose sweeter malt, sage and rosemary. Less thyme than others. Taste some sweeter malt but then mild alcohol or thinner. A bit off compared to the other 2. Less herbal and light bitterness in the finish.
