You have to like Saison's to enjoy this beer. It poured a cloudy yellow color with white head that dissipated. The scent carried mostly floral tones. The taste to me was similar to that tanish clear Life Savor (tropical fruit mixed with hints of butterscotch). The mouthfeel was medium in body with little carbonation. Overall its a solid beer but again....you have to like Saisons to thoroughly enjoy.

750 ml caged and corked bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with about an inch and a half off-white head. The head stays around a long time, and there's a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like bready malt, apricots, citrus peel, banana, Belgian yeast, and some floral hops. The taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also some earthiness and peppery spice noticeable. There's a good sweet and spicy finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit creamy with moderate carbonation. I think it's a good saison, another good beer from Rockmill.

Received this as an extra in a trade...Rough winter so far so lets see if this will help things out.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a very nice gold hue with an explosive three finger rocky, sudsy head that fades to leave nice side lacing. Quite good so far.

S - Aromas of bready malts, light grains, gentle funk/barnyard notes. Belgian yeasts, faint banana, light spice notes (coriander/peppercorns). Not getting much citrus.

T - Taste is well, like an amped up saison (which is what the brewers were going for). Nice bready malts, grains, much stronger barnyard and belgian yeast notes. Big time esters, banana, peppercorns. Decent alcohol bite on the finish before transitioning back to belgian esters.

M - Mouthfeel is very nice, medium body, good carbonation. Helps keep this light on the tongue.

O - Overall, this was a tasty saison. I dunno, I guess with the beautiful attached artwork on the label I was expecting something more elegant or more out there. Well crafted saison that does not really break the mold.
