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.

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.
