Bottled on 3/23/12.

Pours a murky yellow with a 1 inch foamy white head that settles to a thin cap on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, rice, yeast, and spice. Taste is of grain, citrus fruit, citrus zest, yeast, and spices on the finish. There is a mild spice bitterness on the palate after each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer flavor wise but the aroma is a bit of a letdown in my opinion.

A: large white foamny head on a golden body. Nice lacing.

S: clove, musty plae malts, subtle citrus sweetness and mild corriander,

T: breads and mild yeast presence with nice herbal and earthy notes. Mild lemon sweetness and spice without tart or tangy flavors.

M: high carbonation and light body.

Overall: A nice standard saison. It isn't expecitional in any one way but it represents the style very well.

Bottle: Poured a hazy lightly dirty yellow color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light funky yeast notes with light rustic malt with a subtle sour finish. Taste is also a mix between some light funky notes with some light tart notes and some light rustic malt. Light residual sugar is also discernable. Body is quite full with great bottle conditioning and good carbonation. Not the most complex example of the style but well brewed for something that is most likely brewed on a very large scale.
