3.13/5 rDev -10.6%
Appearance: Dusky deep amber with blush highlights. Murky and opaque Large fluffy white head and good retention.
Smell: Yeast, biscuits. floral and hint of citrus?
Taste: This is a very mild crisp summer saison. The strawberry is definitely fresh and present but it is more of a year round strawberry than the sweeter june bearing type.
mouthfeel: Aqueous, there and gone
Overall: I don't feel like I've had a beer at all. Pleasant and easy but nothing to write home about.

12 ounce bottle poured into a Highland Brewing Snifter glass
A - pours up cloudy with about the same color as pear juice, with a one and one half inch head, great retention, but strangely enough, not a whole lot of lacing.
S - I love the nose on this. My sense of smell has always been poor, but this one just has a nice floral aroma to it.
T - very crisp flavor profile that is a lot like your typical saison. What seems to make it different is the strawberry flavor which leads to a tartness not usually found in a saison.
M - good carbonation with a clean finish and not much of an aftertaste.
O - This is one easy to drink and will no doubt be a local favorite from a great up and coming brewer.

Enjoyed with a friend of mine visiting from out of state. Sampled on July 4, 2014.
It pours a slightly cloudy yellow color with a modest head.
The aroma is almost overpowered by yeast. Then there were the biscuit malts and the strawberries.
Medium body mouthfeel.
The strawberry infusion turned this every day Saison/Farmhouse into a tart, although not sour, drinking experience.
Pale yellow pour with a slight haze. The aroma has a nice yeasty biscuit feel to it. And strawberry. The strawberries seem to add a kind of tart aftertaste with the toasted malt character. Not all that bad.

Poured into a pint glass.
Appearance is a cloudy yellow, quite a bit of head and carbonation.
Smells like a typical saison; spicy with a hint of strawberry. Nice.
Tastes like a standard saison with added strawberry tartness. Could use a bit more strawberry, but it isn't offensive at all. Standard saison-ness here, clove and banana.

Bottled 3/26/14, poured into a tulip glass
A- pours a hazy golden-yellow color with a massive foamy and bubbly white head that retains long after the pour, with carbonation bubbles shooting to the top of the glass
S- classic saison aroma with notes of phenolic Belgian yeast with some musty and earthy aromas, dried hay. Very subtle underlying fruity sweetness of strawberry and coriander
T- crisp wheat, hay and coriander up front lead to big musty and earthy flavors with some phenolic notes, slight fruity sweetness gives flavors of orange peel and strawberry. The finish is dry, with with more must and hay on the linger
M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a big foamy mouthfeel and a smooth and crisp finish, high drinkability
O- a fine summer beer that packs in the classic flavors of a saison, yet stays incredibly drinkable. Very good!

12 ounce bottle - Hop City in Birmingham, Alabama.
Born On: 03/28/2014
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazed, yellowish tinged body with a foamy, sudsy, white head.
Smell: Bready malts, hint of pils graininess, and a small, sweetish element to it. A bit of dried herb. Touches of orange, coriander, and the strawberry.
Taste: A light, lightly bready pale maltiness, small hint of sugar cookie. Juicy, citrusy orange, some earthy coriander. Spiciness is boosted by the healthy carbonation. Faint herbal hops, bitterness. Restrained strawberry fruitiness hinting a bit of tartness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-high carbonation.
Overall: While not your everyday saison, it is a pleasant, refreshing strawberry infused beer.

A-Pours a soft pink color that is impermeable. Towering white, creamy head with poor retention and a lot of lacing.
S-Funky yeast, cheese, spice, and nothing more. I'm getting no strawberry at all.
T-That funky yeast flavor overpowers all. An unpleasant, but not too bad, sour taste lingers on the palate with the faintest hint of strawberry.
MF-Crisp, medium-bodied with a dry finish.
O-Not a good fruit based saison. The Belgian yeast and cheese flavor overpowers everything and the strawberry only contributes to the color. Too one-dimensional. This could be a good brew.
