22oz bottle, Release #2. Pours clear yellow-gold with a medium creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet malts and turkey cooking spices (rosemary and sage?) that seem a bit out of place.

The flavor is sweet bready, slightly vegetal malts with a big spice finish (sage and rosemary) and a little mint. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with creamy carbonation.

Overall, an interesting concept, but a bit overly spiced and I wasn't really digging those spices in beer.

Looks really good,a solid inch of bone white head over a lemony orange body.
The nose is full of floral esters and big spice. white pepper, rosemary and sage, just like this pasta my wife hates from applebees. It is a little much though.
The spices are more subtle on the palate though, and this comes across as more of a well done saison here. The cabinent full of spices if there working with Lemon crispness, esters, white pepper and grass.
Mouthfeel is medium-full.

Chill hazed golden colored beer with a small white colored head.

Smells Highly hopped with a strong bitter citrus aroma. Minty sage over the bitter citrus scent and that is about it.

Starts off fairly bitter with a bitter citrus flavor. Sage is in here as a minty flavor. Doesn't taste much like the sage from your kitchen. Bitter oranges and mint are all I get from this.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall, I don't need to drink this again. I REALLY wanted to like this but it is just simply bitter with no redeeming qualities at all.

Picked up tonight at Bier Thirty in Bown.... Poured into my small Cigar City snifter.... Pours a hazy light orange with a short lasting white head that leaves only a little lacing.

The nose is herbaceous... hard to pick any one herb out... a predominant lemon element is the bigger player.

On the palate, the herbs play a much larger role.... a significant amount of sage.... and what I think of rosemary comes out... Rosemary always makes me think of antiseptic qualities... again, a lemony note reminds us that this is a saison... light pale malts tie this brew together... but it still finishes fairly dry.

Body seems a touch heavy for the style.... carbonation is also maybe a little light.

Well this beer really surprised me, I didn't expect the herbal qualities in the smell to begin with.

It poured a very nice color, golden clear with a fairly carbonated head. Had to wait for the head to go down, didn't quite dissapear but leaves a 1/8th inch white head the entire way.

Smell was that between a christmas tree, rosemary, and fresh cut lawn. It was pleasant but a little unexpected for me.

The taste was just as herbal as the smell. The rosemary came through even more, but I tasted a good bit of lemon as well. It's very interesting and unique, I could see this pairing well with some seafood.

The mouthfeel was pleasant, I thought it was just right for the amount of flavor coming through. For other beers it may be too carbonated but it helps smooth out the herbal tones so it's not too strong of a taste.

Overall I would recomend this for a friend to experience. I feel it's something I glad to have tasted but I might not purchase again.

The pour is cloudy yellow in color with a tall white head. Woah, certainly some sage in this beer. It’s really dominating and pretty much all I can smell. Maybe a bit of citrus peel and bread. The flavor is just as heavy on the sage. A light citrus note, some bread, and a hint of yeast. But mostly just sage. I liked it, but a small pour is enough.
