Picked this up at TW in Springfield for $4.99 on a hot summer day in VA. Bottled in July 2014.

Appearance: hazy amber with a thin head. No lacing, whatsoever.

Smell: dried, sweetened fruits with an unbelievably fragrant yeast. Reminds me of Germany in the summertime!

Taste: wonderfully light fruitiness with a touch of tart. A little dryness at the end.

Mouthfeel: Moderately carbonated.

Drinkability: High. This beer will bring coolness and refreshment on hot summer days.

Overall: Light, fruity goodness that represents the style well.

Poured a light golden color with a one finger head in a tulip glass.
The aroma: spice, barnyard ,very aromatic ,but different than a lot of other Saisons- more balanced.

The MF is very carbonated as expected with the style.

The aroma transitions well to the taste:lots of spice with a nice citrus barnyard finish-but a different type of citrus than other Saisons.

Another excellent beer by Smuttynose. The spices are definitely distinct and different than other beers in the style. The sage rounds out the spicy character of the beer. With warming, the pineapple sage becomes prominent in the aroma and also in the taste. As beer warms up the spice becomes quite prominent especially in the finish.

One of the better American brewed Saisons I have tasted.
