12oz bottle poured into a pint

A- Beautiful light and bright cloudy yellow, almost lemonade like. Had a minimal head, with loose lacing left on the sides of the glass.

S- Fruity and spicy nose, hits of sweet grass.

T- Subtle grain, grass and yeasty spice notes. Has a distinct tartness that puckers your cheeks ever so slightly. Refreshing. No hint of the 7.3abv which is truly remarkable. I did a double take when I read how much alcohol it has. I would have guessed 5.25. Dry finish with some lingering tartness.

M- great mouthfeel, its slightly thick, but very well carbonated. lends to the refreshing quality.

O- Very drinkable, I will go back for more of this for sure.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into my NBB snifter. Like the new labels and graphics from GD. Bottled on date of Apr 15, 2009 clearly marked on bottom of label (big thumbs up for that). It was cloudy pale gold color. Multiple carb streams and some quick sliding lace. It had a large fizzy off-white head that quickly settled into a thin collar and faint whips in center.

The aroma was very earthy, funky up front with pepper and clove in back. Didn't get much of the fruitiness that others got but that OK as I love the funk aroma on this one. The taste was good but not as good as the aroma. It starts out with a good saison taste - spicy, dry and some fruit shows here - but it had a weird aftertaste. It was there at the beginning but thankfully faded as it warm and the ABV kicked in. Was rather unpleasant but couldn't pin it down before it faded. If it had stayed, I'd score a 3 and probably not have again but since it faded I'm going with a 4 and have again.

Overall, a really good saison that I give high recommendation (just let it really warm up). I enjoy almost all the GD beers and this one is another good addition to the lineup. Not available here but if it was it would be worth a few during summer heat.

Drinking 6.5 months after date on bottle

A - opaque, yet glowing yellow-gold honey color. Carbonated to my liking. Didn't form a huge head on pour but sustains a steady stream of fine bubbles.

S - unripe banana with grassy and honey due side notes. Not much spiciness in the aroma.

T - Strong banana characteristics. Bit of hotness/spiciness left on the back of tongue. Sweet but not overpowering.

M - thin bodied, leaves a bitter spiciness in aftertaste

Definitely will buy again.

Redoing my review for this since I have since given it a second shot and enjoyed it far more this time around.

Pours a sandy whitish yellow with a slight white head. Aroma is strongly belgian yeasty with some spiciness and pepper, sweet but bright lemon, and some wheat. Flavor pretty much followed suit. A medium bodied, active, creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a nice beer but held back a little because its one I could only enjoy in moderation. My 16 oz pour was the perfect amount, I couldn't drink any more.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Light Polished brass with a inch thick white head and a slight haze to the body

Smell: Very much i the way of lemons and pine with a slight almost pork fat back end note lending some sweetness.

Taste: Lots of bright citrus up front but not to bitter. There is a nice balance that one can easily find refreshing. The finish is a touch woody and slightly sweet and sour.

Mouthfeel: Light but not to special. Enough to linger slightly.

Drinkability: A very nice summer bear I think, not as refreshing as the samurai but different with a nice sweet finish.

This year's variation just hit shelves. This one was brewed on 3/1/12. Poured in pint glass.

A: Pours hazy light gold with a decent sized white head. Lacing is good.

S: Smell is heavy Belgian yeast, malt, sugar and lemon.

T: Heavy cracker-malt dominated this one, along with a really musty Belgian yeast profile. There is a nice dose of lemon, as well. Notes of light herbs are present. Ends dry. A very nice traditional saison taste profile.

M: Appropriately light, carbonated, and semi-smooth. Super easy to drink.

O: This is a good American saison. The yeast and malt profile are right on. This beer is also dry and slightly fruity, as it should be. One of my favorites when spring rolls around.

It's finally spring, so it was time to get the first saison of the year. This is a bit strong, but also very good; at 7.3% abv, it's not something I'll adopt as my summer beer of choice, but was a good call to have with dinner. Very happy with the beer, but it's certainly, as Great Divide says, their interpretation of the style rather than an authentic one.

12oz bottle into Duvel tulip. Bottled on Feb19, 2010.

Appearance: Moderate pour yields a 3/4 inch head that dissipates steadily and leaves sparse lacing. Pours a very hazy yellow, and leaves no lacing.

Smell: The dominant aspects of the aroma are some tangy and slightly sour notes, as well as Belgian yeast and a characteristic wheat beer smell. There's some nice, thick breadiness, banana, and some earthy funk.

Taste: Starts juicy and carbonated, segueing into a sharp, tangy taste characterized by citrus and clove, then finishes dry. The beginning is punchy and enjoyable texturally, if a little drab flavor-wise. The flavorful part of each sip is nice and earthy and musty, but still vibrant and zesty. There's a bit too much sweetness in the finish sometimes, with a sort of sugary feel going along with it.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, with big carbonation and juiciness up front, then a slightly puckering tartness that gives way to a dry finish. The beer is always very active in the mouth.

Drinkability: This is a very refreshing and delicious beer. The kind of beer I would keep on hand at all times, especially in summer. Nice go to beer when you want refreshment with a decent complexity (as advertised, incidentally).

I know that some people think this beer isn't "indicative of the style of saison," but that's a rather strange attitude to take. On the one hand, this beer is exactly what BA describes as a saison (slightly dry, lots of spice, sweetness generally restrained, nice earthy notes). On the other hand, it doesn't taste like many of the very celebrated Belgian saisons. Add to this that Belgian brewers aren't particularly concerned with what style you can throw a beer into, and the issue of authenticity seems to dissolve, at least for me.

Regardless, Colette is a delicious beer. There's some flaws (it's a little sugary at times, the funkiness could be turned up to good effect, and the beer is rather lacking ester-wise, especially considering the banana present in the aroma but absent from the flavor), but it's solid and refreshing. To boot, it's a good saison that comes in a 6 pack for the price of 750ml of most good imported saisons. Excellent value. I was very impressed when I first tried this, and still am.

I picked this up as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99 at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL. 12oz brown bottle with a bottled on date of 12/13/12 on the side label, making this bottle about 3 months old.

Not much to look at. The beer pours a cloudy pear yellow color with just a half finger of white head that dissipates quickly and leaves virtually no lacing.

The aroma is an odd mix of citrus and tropical fruits along with a barnyard smell.

There's lots of flavor in here. There's a pineapple and lemon fruit component, a biscuity malt sweetness, earthy and herbal hops, and a blend of spices. There's also a slightly sour twang coming from the Belgian yeast. Very complex and very tasty.

Light bodied and crisp with medium carbonation.

Not a huge fan of the style, but if you're going to try one, this would be a good choice.

Pours pastel lemon yellow, hazed and subtly aglow. A very light blush if you look hard and a creamy head of white foam that falls fine and leaves lace as you drink. The nose is scrumptious pineapple. Sweet but also tangy. Some earthy yeast and a soft sweet biscuit malt. The re is no alcohol on the nose even though this one has a touch more abv than the usual for the style. Taste is sweet and malty. Surprising maltiness for the style and the body is unique. It's smooth and creamy. Soft yet crisp. How did they do that? The pineapple is so authentic with a sharp sweetness and a bit of twang. The malt is heavenly biscuit and there is a just a touch of alcohol in the drink. It's a light medicinal in the finish. Nothing to really offend and hardly even warms. Sweet juicy earthy and finishes dry with a spice.

This beer was a terrific surprise. It has a body that is so much more than you were expecting but doesn't give way to syrup or to heaviness. It's terribly sweet but has a lightness that seems puzzling. As it warms the spice comes to the nose and really makes this complex.

Bottled on Feb 7, 2013.

It's a great looking cloudy yellow pour, plenty of foam on that head, does okay with the lacing.

Spicy nose, mostly clove and pepper, goodly amount of wheat, bubblegum, and an orange citrusy thing going on. Inviting.

Spicy, see above, taste with more bubblegum than in the smell, yeasty, bananas here and there, orange citrus I mentioned in the smell...not there. Maybe my nose was confused? It is a complex son of a gun. It has some sort of fruity thing going on n=but it's stumping me. Good taste I'm getting so I'm not all that perturbed.

Medium light to light medium body with ample carbonation.

A good example of the style though I'd like/prefer the abv to be a bit lower.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip- pours a hazy yellow color, with a pure white one finger head, which receds quickly and leaves behind a little touch of lacing.

The smell is very inviting and definitely got my attention- tart fruit, lemon, and that wild yeast smell that's impossible to miss.

Tastes very refreshing- not an overwhelming taste and certainly not as potent as the smell. Definitely taste the wheat and the rice- barely seems to have gotten a bad deal here. A little bit of lemon and wild yeast nuttiness.

Mouthfeel is pretty good- as stated above, very refreshing. Light body with medium carbonation. This is certainly a well made and interesting brew. I got a good deal (one 12 oz bottle for $1.50). I MIGHT get it again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Poured a thick hazy lemony-orange with a 2 finger, off white head that was fair in retention and weak in lacing. Unfortunately this didn't offer to much in the visual spectrum.

S: Fruit and tart lemon notes exist on the nose along with a noticeable wheaty character. Orange-lemon citrus, lightly tart and dry, but with a very nice refreshing quality adds some respect to the aroma that was moderate in strength.

T: Tart, with a dry lemon and orage flavor opens things up. Dried fruitiness of mangos, pineapple along with a strong showing of wheat also appear. A softy wheaty exit with tart, dry citrus leaves on good terms. Not a lot of complexity here and wish I could say more about this, but its limited spectrum does in no way hinder enjoyment and ease that this has to offer. It is very solid by example and wont disappoint.

M: The mouthful was a strong point here, very crisp, sharp and refreshing with a big carbonation bite that suited this style well. Medium fullness, smooth in texture with a dry tar lemon-wheat fade that is sure to keep you sippin.

D: Very nice drinkability, crisp, dry, well suited per style and 6 pack worthy. An easy to drink interpretation that makes for a good tart summertime farmhouse that will wet the whistle and make fans of the style.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A real soft fluffy white head on creation, very bright and white, settles real nicely on to a gorgeous lemon and dark buttery gold body. Nice pinhead sized bubbles in the head also. Body is slightly dull but really glowing. Very nice looking beer.

Real nice baked bread action on this, white crisp flour, some slight butter, dry yeast sense, very nice.

Taste is a nice mix of fruit sweetness and dry bread. Good rich mouthfeel and very dry finish on the aftertaste, playfully carbonated without taking much away from the palate. Orange and tangerine seems to come through with a nice citrus quality, and an almost floral sense.

Overall a real refreshing and nice saison. Hardly booze either at 7.3 percent too.

Look: Poured into a La Fin Du Mode tulip. Hazy yellow body, two finger foamy white head that doesn't last too long. No real lacing.

Smell: WOW! I can smell this from across the room. Banana, clove, orange, zest right off the bat. You can really smell the belgian yeast they used to.

Taste: I'm diggin' the funk. Its fruity and wheaty. Lots of flavor in this. Every new sip brings out a different fruit or spice. Just as the nose expected.

Mouth/Drink: The mouth is a bit thin but still feels nice. Drinkablity is high with all the flavor, this is a really nice beer.

Bottled on March 3, 2011. 12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Lots of sediment, so pour slow of that's your thing. Ok, this beer looks gorgeous. Light, bright yellow with a nice haze. White head that sticks around and decent lacing. Amazing color and looks. The aromas are what you would come to expect. Very sweet and funky. The flavors are spot on, lots of barnyard funk. There's some fruitiness going on, which I like. Apples, pears, and banana can be found. There's candied sugars in the mix, giving it some sweetness. Yeast, malts, breads, and grains can all be found. Very earthy notes. Slightly spicy. Mouthfeel is nice.. it's very rich and smooth. The carbonation isn't over the top, just right. Drinkability is good, but this one has a kick at 7.3%. Overall, this is a great belgian style beer, brewed here in the U.S.

Great offering from Great Divide. This is definitely one to enjoy when the weather gets warmer. Very enjoyable, refreshing, recommended.

I poured a 12 oz bottle into pint sized glass mug...

The liquid is cloudy, pale and yellow with a thin filmy white head that stuck to the glass. The smell has a lot of Belgian yeast, salt, banana, clove and sour lemon. The taste starts with some tart lemon then you get some yeast and spice, banana and a grassy/ lemony finish. The beer is light bodied with stinging carbonation and a seriously dry finish. I really enjoyed this beer, it has a little something for everyone.

Hazy lemony color with a merange type head, 2 fingers good. Cloudy yellow.

Yeasty farmhouse goodness, not to funky, but nice.

Good yeasty flavor follows the nose, a bit fizzy, but nice backbone of malt for the style. This has light malt but complements the yeastiness, finish is a bit off, not as dry as I like.

Nice creamy mouthfeel after the fizz fizzles out. Very nice drinker, a keeper for those who like this style.

Definitely one of the better domestic basic farmhouse ales in memory. Actually has some flavor and complexity, although none of what it has to offer is unique.

While the initially cottony head fails to maintain - in fact, all foam completely disappears rather fast - the hazy gold color of the liquid is kinda purdy.

The aroma is very Belgian and very complex. Malty/wheaty first and foremost, straw-like grain and a cider fruitiness slowly emerges with an overtone of yeast looming.

Funky and peppery up front in essence, the taste shifts to a predominance of complex cereal malt flavors - lightly toasted wheat, I feel, holding the reins.

Balance never fully takes hold as stealth fizzy carbonation slowly thins out the body, even as it warms, and the finish becomes increasingly hotter and out of whack.

Maybe if I had this super fresh it would kill, but it's still pretty good.

The new 2011 batch on tap, Rockies opening day. Sunny outside, perfect for this brew.

Cloudy pour, very hazy and bright. A deep, yet pale golden pour. Big white head, great lacing.

Aroma is very nice; spicy, floral, bready. I've said this before about myself--I think I'm quite sensitive to corn aromas, and I get that here. I'll knock a tic off the score, but not much since it might just be me. Somewhat sweet it seems

Yup, it's a bit sweet in the taste. Overall it's flavors are nice. Bready--with spice. Coriander, florals, a bit of soft citrus. Fairly rich is the mouth. I'd like to see more of something to cleanse the finish, but still very nice.

12oz bottle poured into a Stella Artois glass late at night. I forgot I already had this on tap, so here goes a bottle review.

Murky muddled yellow with faint traces of faint orange on the edges. Colette did not provide a decent head for a Belgian coming from a hard forceful pour, only a whispy inch of adjunct lager looking head that died before it rised up, weak fluff.

Surprisingly the nose on Colette is just filled with a fruit basket backed with a Belgian yeast, or should I say four. Ok, the bready semi sweet comes through but it's the fruits that come out in full force. I can say that the fruit is coming into De Dolle territory with ripeness out the wazoo. Under that some trace hay and earthy hop scents.

The taste comes close but does not mimick the scent, I was not expecting it to, alot of American brewed Belgian styles tend to miss the mark, Great Divide comes close though. Apple skins with pears and some bready yeast with some bisquit. A small non bitter hop taste comes through mid way while Colette forms a fruity and bready finish.

At times, she is smooth with a ripe fruit taste going down, sometimes, it's more bready and yeasty leaving for a dryness on the backend, it all depends. Medium bodied with a solid build and enough carb built in to leave a slight mark. This comes off like a Belgian golden mixed with a saison.

I like this, I like it more in the bottle for some reason or another. The mix of yeasts in this really sets it off. This is one American Saison that I would drink more than one of. It's not to far off from the others meaning it's not quite on the Belgian scale, but damn it's close. I know it's not sessionable, but F that, Im dranking more.

The Head retention on this is good, the smell is dead on dead for a farmhouse ale. Tons of Belgian yeast goodness. No particularly fruity notes and the flavor is a little clean for the farmhouse genre. Nothing too special to taste. the color was beautiful and it had an exceptional lacing. I could drink it again but I don't need to, know what I mean?

Picked this up at Buy Rite in Jersey City recently. This was a crapshoot for me and I wasn't sure if Great Divide could take on a style like this and have it match up with the beers from Europe that I've tried in this style. Sure enough, it did! There was no doubt that this was worth getting as a single bottle and even though this was just a bit too strong for me, the flavors and mouthfeel were extremely nice to behold.

This had a good pour to it, with a hazy golden hue, decent head, and some sediment on the bottom of the bottle that had to be swirled and emptied into my glass. The flavors were typical, with lots of banana and straw up front and some farmhouse "funk" in the back. A bit of alcohol could be detected here too but by no means did it detract from the taste. The carbonation was present but not overpowering, just adding enough to the mouthfeel to keep it from getting too heavy.

While this isn't the best example of the style that I've had, this was quite enjoyable and had I not seen the bottle, I wouldn't have guessed who brewed this. Someone who has never tried this style before would be wise to start here - this isn't too overpowering and is a textbook example of what a good Saison/Farmhouse should be, since the funky and spicy notes are absent here. I'd certainly have this again!

Pours a hazy straw coloration with a one finger white head with some spotty lacing.

Good amounts of belgian yeast and spice on the nose, lemon zest, grass, and straw hop aroma. Yeast imparts some fruity overtones, pear and slight banana and some slight funk, very bright.

Flavor is predominantly of spices and muted lemon with earthy yeast and grassy/floral hops. Slight funk but finishes bright and tangy. Very refreshing.

Mouthfeel is a little light and the yeast does little to dial it up, light fizzing carbonation slightly biting to go with the tanginess. Alcohol, has no presence and lightly acidic after taste, surprisingly drying.

Great Divide delivers again with another great example of style, this one is refreshing and appreciably complex. Bright brew for summer days ahead.
