look: 4.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

Pours clear gold with a small white head and solid spotty lacing.

Smells a little citrusy with too much peppercorn and Belgian yeast strain. Pepper and corriander overpower.

A little bit fruity up front. Devolves into a big Belgian yeast character. Big peppercorn and clove finish. Not much else.

Light bodied with medium carbonation. Finishes dry.

Very mediocre and not very enjoyable. Not complex at all and whatever yeast used overpowers anything good in this beer. Very disappointed as everything I've had from Fremont before has been good.

Served in a Mikasa tulip.

Pours a slightly-hazy golden-apricot color with a two-finger white head and some pretty sticky lacing on the way down. Nice collar throughout. The nose is full of wheat and some phenols; there's a bit of pepper and some light fruit. The flavor is full of wheat and pepper plus some pear and other fruits. A bit of a cidery character as well. A bit heavy on the pepper and phenols. Medium body with a dry finish. Good carbonation. Pretty good, but not something I'd likely go back to.

Poured can into a pint glass...

A - Hazey golden color, not much head, leaves some decent lace.

S - Ok, you can pick up on the cloves.

T - I don't drink a lot of Saison/Farmhouse Ales so I'm not sure if I've acquired the appreciation for this style or this is just ok to me. It isn't crap but I probably won't buy it again.

M - Decent.

22oz bomber poured into a pint glass. Notes from November 10th, 2011.

A: The beer pours a straw yellow color with a thin head of white foam with nice light lacing.

S: Harvest has a pungent aroma of funky barnyard yeast with a bit of lemon and sweet stone fruits such as peaches and pears.

T: Peppery, yeasty saison with a light citrus profile. Lots of tangy funk present here.

M: The beer starts off oily, but finishes off with a very dry body.

O: Pretty average American attempt at a saison. Nice to see Fremont continue to try new things.
