Thanks to TomDecapolis for sharing this...
Appears a slightly hazy, semi transparent gold with a small, white head that fades into a mild cap. Spotty lacing is left around the glass and small amounts of CO2 rise to the top.
Smell is of corn husk, hay, yeast, apricots, honey, flowers, and wax.
Taste is summed up in the aromas with an odd, hay-like flavor being pronounced.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, smooth (after fizzyness dies out), dirty, mineraly, with wet hay and wheat rounding it out to the thin finish..
Seems like something went awry with this.

Bought a 22oz bottle at Winooski Beverage, along with a few more Rock Art offerings.
The appearance was an opaque golden yellow that left a thin white head that dissipated quickly. Obviously, little of the head was left clinging to the glass.
The smell was floral. Not much else.
The taste was a repeat of the floral sweetness. There was a little spice. This was a one dimensional beer.
The mouthfeel was light, and there was little carbonation.
On the second pour in the same glass, there was more of a head, and more apparent carbonation, but still was not impressive.
This is not in the same class as other Saisons I have tasted.

22 oz bomber into a hefeweizen glass.

Quite obviously mislabeled. More appropriately considered a spiced ale or spiced pale ale. Low ABV and VERY low IBUs of 10, which direct the attention to the dominant spice and citrus flavors.

Great mid-day summer beer. Pours a hard yellow, perhaps a bit clear-ish, but has a thick, creamy head. Nice mixture of coriander seed, brown bread, dried lemon peel, and rye. Well-balanced, soft, and smooth, with the citrus spice, and graininess go through to the back on the tongue. A touch of sweetness rounds out the flavor. Not exceptionally drinkable, but certainly worth picking one up.

Poured into my Portsmouth tulip.

A- A decent pour still yields only 1-finger of off-white head. Once it's there, though, it does show some OK retention as it drops to a thin, spotty cap.

S- Sweet and fruity yeast, lemon, and some peppercorn aroma.

T- A little of the fruity sweetness, but also a very watery and slightly metallic flavor that lingers. Slight grassy/ musty flavor.

MF/O- Sadly, it's pretty thin. The watery flavor just adds to a very thin body. No carbonation comes through even though they're still rising in the glass. Overall, I really wanted to like this because I do like a lot of Rock Art's beers, but I really wouldn't search it out sny time soon. Not a bad beer and it would have it's place, but that place might be as a gateway saison.

The beer pours a hazy gold color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is decent. It has a light pale and wheat malt scent along with a dry and fruity yeast scent. It's a mild yeast aroma at best. It's also lacking the farmhouse funk. The taste is average. It has a weak and watery pale and wheat malt flavor with hints of coriander and orange peel. It goes down quick and easy with a thin yeasty finish. The mouthfeel is average as well. It is a low bodied beer with good carbonation. This is a weak attempt at a saison. I'm sure it would be good in the heat, but so would a Coors light.

This beer was a one-time offering from the Morrisville crew, a Saison/Farmhouse, drink in the summer brew. Out of the bomber it poured a hazy gold with some copper hues. The head was nice, retaining well down to a good cap that laced pretty well too. The aroma was inviting, spices and citrus, lots of coriander in particular similar to a Belgian style Wit. The flavors were not as pronounced however, orange peel and lemon first hit my tongue followed by the coriander and cloves. The grassy hops is understated and the aftertaste was a little of minerals. Light to medium body but the carbonation was a little prickly. A good beer but not really a Saison and could use some work on the kinks.

Pours a hazy golden body beneath the dense, feather white head which slowly dissipates to leave a sticky, consistent lacing.

The aroma offers generous amounts of yeast and sweet orange peel. The coriander and pepper appear after a couple of minutes as well as some herbal notes.

The flavor offers similar yeast and zesty citrus fruit such as orange and lemon, but less pronounced. The black pepper and coriander are also less apparent on the palate at first but really come forward as it warms.

Lighter in body with generous amounts of carbonation rushing the palate.

I could use more yeast and spice on the palate versus some of its style counterparts, but this still offers nice flavor and aromas for the senses and looks great.
