Let me just start by saying, if you've never had a saison before, do NOT let this be your first saison. it is pretty bad for the style...

A-cloudy yellow with a very thin white head

S-smells like buttered wheats and B.O. some spice. medium strength

T-tastes like vegetables in creamed corn, then left in a pot that sat boiling for a few months as the vegetables spoiled. and then someone jumped in this pot after a long and sweaty sauna session. this pretty much sums up the after-taste until someone dumped a bucket of butter in to the pot. all in all...quite disgusting.

M-medium dry carbonation with a very dry finish

O-this is one of those orders that i immediately regretted. this is a very unique saison. usually uniqueness will gain a beer points, but not in this case. it just doesn't work. st.somewhere completely missed the boat on this one. i honestly can't think of anyone that would enjoy this.

Cloudy yellow with a nice smooth head. Very in your face saison. Hits you with immediate tart grapefruit and bitter hops. Feels great in the mouth, with light fizzy carbonation that tickles the tongue. Very clean aftertaste.

On-tap at several places, including the CCB tap room. Tonight I am having it at Mr. Dunderbak's.

A - It pours a fairly radiant golden hue, translucent, and is capped with a bit of frothy white head. The froth sticks around for a bit.

S - This is, to me, a very straightforward take on the Saison. It is of the realm of Saison DuPont, whereas SS's other Saisons are a little more experimental in nature. There is a good amount of Saison sweatiness and earthy mustiness, along with crisp Pale-Pils maltiness and some continental hop to round it out.

T - Most of my sentiments are expressed within the 'smell' section of this review. About all I'll add is that it has a bit of a rustic character, and some flavors in the vein of sharp cheese.

M - This is better than most other on-tap SS offerings, in terms of feel. Usually they are over-carbed to the point of foamy oblivion (designed for bottle conditioning), but this one is quite nice.

D - The brew is good, but definitely not great. Still, I'd surely pick up a few bottles of this, were it to be released in such a format.

Pours bright and clear, a golden yellow with a good-sized white head thst dissipates to a thick film. Some fine bubbles cling to the glass just short of the head and hold like a still life version of the waterfall before evaporating like a fog.
Smell is rich and malty with strong notes of citrus, grape and green apple blended together. Hops is present weakly, a supporting player. Nicely balanced and well presented.
Taste is malty and sour with a grape note prominent. Not as balanced as the nose, however.
Light to medium body with a medium effervescence. Finishes cleaner than expected and with a hint of dryness and vinegar acidity. Overall a fine beer.
