Bright glowing yellow, big white head, spotty sparse lace. Aroma is great. Super refreshing clean and stinky citrus, earthy and herbal, doughy chewy malts, spicy and soft, juicy dank fruit and miscellaneous flowers. Taste is all of the above plus sugary through the finish. Briskly carbonated. I like this saison more than many I've had. Really well done. I could proceed to enjoy a lot of these.

Bought from a liquor mart store in Denver, CO on Colorado ave.

Bottled on 06/14/13. Pour into a snifter. Sunflowers seed in between sips

A&S: green grape sourness, orange zest, coriander spice, light bread tones. Crisp smelling lively looking light orange colored beer. Transparency turns from see-through to translucent as bottom yeast is added to the glass. Light fluffy head that retains extremely well at half finger increment.

T&M: surprisingly powerful upfront, BANG! Huge in your face flavors including citrus (orange and tangerine) and cloves. This upfront flavor becomes less intense as more yeast is added but it give way to a touch of funk. Earthy hops round of the beer nicely in a strong bitter finish. Crisp at first, but not as refreshing as the crispness would led you to believe (as the taste hangs around for a while). Low to medium bodied and on the higher side of medium for carbonation.

Overall: Bought off a store employee's recommendation. I'm loving this brewing company. It is astounding how much respect I have gained for this company in the limited beers I have tried (3 with a 4th in the fridge). Extremely affordable, sitting at 3 bucks a bottle. Very glad Crooked Stave and Stillwater formed this this beer trading alliance. I will promptly be snagging everything that I haven't tried from this company, they are that good!

Pours a cloudy amber with billowing white head. settles to a thin layer, spotty lacing. Smell: apricot, grapefruit peel, floral, more stone fruit sweetness beneath. Taste: nectarine, white grape, blood orange, bready wheat.
Medium- plus bodied, dry, spicy and very slightly chalky finish. Classic yeast character and finish;hoppy and fruit forward.

12oz bottle ~$2.50. Bright orange color, slightly hazy, filmy head, looks quite good. Aroma is fruity, citrus, hops and at the same time derivative or maybe its just reminiscent of another well-known saison? Fruit flavor, hint of rusty metal, easy to drink. Overall an interesting saison but not something I will purchase again.
