From notes

A - Pours a hazy straw/golden brown color with one finger of off-white head.

S - Smells of coriander. citrus and yeast. Also a slight amount of pepper. Pretty good.

T - Similar to smell. Nice spices with hints of citrus and pronounced Belgian yeast presence. Pretty refreeshing. Finishes slightly earthy.

M - Light/medium mouthfeel, crisp up front, slightly dry finish.

O - A bit tame for the style, but this still has some good flavors and goes down easy.

My first from this local brewery. From a 12oz bottle into my Darkness snifter.

Pours a hazy golden rod. A modest, white, one finger head that needed a fairly stiff pour to produce died quickly and left little lacing.

Biscuity grains blend with Belgian style yeast esters. Spices, some pear. Orange zest comes through.

Taste follows the nose. Grainy upfront but quickly blends with floral/spicy and somewhat fruity yeast notes. Orange peel in the finish is a nice addition. Very little in the hop department.

Light to medium in body. Creamy with a moderately dry finish. Well carbonated.

Overall this was a good Saison from a local brewery I'll have to look into more. This was by no means stellar, but it was a tasty and drinkable brew. The orange peel can actually be tasted and seems to work well. I can't say I'll revisit this one frequently, but would recommend it to anyone not familiar with Saisons or looking to try a good, lesser known, MN brewery. Cheers!

A- Clear honey, with a thin white head that lasts pretty well and leaves a couple wisps of lacing.
S- The aroma is straightforward but pleasant. Spicy, with pepper and clove and a bit of pale grainyness.
T- Taste is far sweeter than the nose made me think it would be. This one has an odd but pleasant canned peach flavor, with a strong spice flavor in the finish.
M- Mouthfeel is light, almost foamy. The finish is quite dry.
O- It's an ok beer, I enjoyed it well enough, but there are so many saisons out there I would prefer.

Poured into a Pint Glass

Appearance - Cloudy, unfiltered golden straw color with a very fizzy head to it which quickly disappears.

Smell - Lemon, cloves, a slight hint of pepper, yeasts and barley. The smell itself is very earthy and grassy, almost like a blonde ale instead of a Saison.

Taste - Cloves, bananas, pepper, light lemon, biscuits/yeasts and grassiness. It tastes more like a Saison in the flavor fortunately and the flavor is alright.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. It feels very crisp and refreshing on the palate

Overall - It's okay for what it is. However if you want a truly excellent Saison ale, go with Surly CynicAle or Ommegang Hennepin
