3.1/5 rDev -9.4%
Had on tap here in Indy a few months ago. Rating the bottle I bought at Costco today.
A: Clear, "shiny penny" copper. About a finger of quickly retreating head, little to no retention.
S: Floral and herby, spring field like smell. Smells good, but doesn't jibe with the look, at all.
T: Not a lot of the herbs I smelled, and this is definitely not a saison. It tastes more like an amber. It is not exciting.
M: Medium bodied, but seems flat/old.
Just not a good brew overall and I have no idea what they were shooting for.

I dont see why this beer is so poorly rated. I enjoyed it a lot.
Lots of nose including lemongrass, spice, belgian yeast, blueberry (pr blue agave based on description)
The flavor follows the nose. Lots of belgian yeast, lemon, peppery notes, blue agave/blueberry, bready malts, sweet butter.
Overall an enjoyable beer. A lot happening and it may conflict and clash a bit, might explain the lower rating. But i enjoyed this beer.

3.39/5 rDev -0.9%
Poured from a 650ml bottle into a pint glass
A: Light orange with a 1/2-finger head
S: Sweet, some spice, some light wheat notes
T: Lots of spice initially followed by some florals/potpourri, not a lot in the way of malty/hoppy characteristics
M: Light-bodied, a fair amount of carbonation
O: Meh. Not what I'd call a saison but not sure what style it would be... a unique/interesting beer but not one I'd buy again

Had a 25 oz of this On-Tap in Louisville.
Made great for the large quantity. I drank it rather quickly.
The small head faded quickly.
Some spicyness. Dry, but not as much as the other saison's I've had. Very pleasant.
I would say this does not have all the characteristics of a saison, but then again I haven't had too many. Could have used a touch more carbonation.
