Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #46 (Nov 2010):
Hazy pale-yellow color, decent lacing wrapped around the glass. Fresh herbs, nutty yeast, ripe pears and plums, and some fresh-cut grass is the collective of a very complex aroma. Crispness struggles to snap though the moderate body, which finally yields. Lemony, herbal and floral ... from bite to phenol to pleasant. Mild tartness is short but has enough muster to stand up to the malt. A little wet and malty in the semisweet finish. Pretty damn amazing, from a brewery not known for Belgian styles.

22 oz. bomber.
pours out a very pale gold colour with incredible active carbonation holding up an immense inch high eggshell white head. belgian lace. peppery spice and lemon aroma supported by a pilsneresque malt base. the taste follows suit...nuanced cracker like maltiness blanketed by a white pepper spice note. slightly tart. there is a noticeable hop layer in the flavour profile that has both spicy saaz notes and a hint of domestic NW fruitiness. it's also a bit yeasty as per the style...finishing on the dry side. quite quenchable. this saison is a bit light in the body, with a dry, crisp, lip smacking mouthfeel. nice drinkability.
overall...this one scores points for it crispness and quenching qualities, but lacks in the taste department. I've been sitting on two bottles for a long time and wonder if this is past its prime. i'm not a great saison drinking mind but this offering failed to pique my interest.
