3.98/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22oz. bottle into a tasting glass.

The color is a hazy orange/gold with some nice foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass.

The smell is fruity with some slight pear that is sweet in the aroma. There is a nice funk aroma that comes up as well with some slight bitterness holding the background.

The flavor of this beer has some nice grassy flavor that is ripe with some nice juicy flavor that comes out after touching with some skin flavor. The juicy flavor holds for a second and then lets some bitterness in and it takes control. There is almost a hop blitz but there is a nice yeasty flavor that is a slight Belgian flavor that I was looking for. Then bitter hit at the end. Nice.

The feel of this beer is big but only for the complex flavors. There is some interesting fruit flavors that also carry some big bitterness that is there for a moment to take control but then slides right into the background. This beer is drinkable and has a great feel to it that is warming and somewhat spicy at times.

3.75/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, hazy, gold in color, high carbonation, clear

Smell: apple, hay, and Belgian spices

Taste: apple, hay, and Belgian spices and sugars with slight earthy bitterness at the end

Mouthfeel: sweet with slight bitterness, medium-light bodied with low carbonation

Overall: I enjoyed this saison. It is above average and the bitterness at the end is just enough to balance out the sweetness. The alcohol is well hidden. I would probably pick this up again.

Serving type: on-tap

Reviewing this beer from notes, had over the summer. Smell rich, yeasty, with a bit of citrus mingled in. Appearance cloudy dark gold. Taste the yeast comes through here again and adds a nice mouthfeel as well. Nice depth next sip reveals a little of the citrus that appeared on the nose as well as what would be called earthiness if i was reviewing a wine, but essentially a really nice malty quality punctuated at the end with a nice spiciness from the use of the rye. Overall a really well done beer and one I'm looking forward to trying again as i write this review.

Draught @ Noho Brewfest: This one poured a cloudy, golden color. There was a small white head that leaves some lacing. It has a nice nose. Some spices, earthiness, yeast, citrus and wheat. The taste is also very good. Wheat, spiciness, citrus, some sweetness and dryness. A nice saison.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

On-tap 7/30/13 at Pour Farm Tavern in New Bedford, MA, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a thin off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains spices, wheat, caramelized malts, Belgian yeast and some fruit.

T: The taste starts out with sweet flavors of spice, caramel and bananas. Then some breadiness comes in from Belgian yeast and a hearty malt character. The hops presence is mild complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a solid Saison to drink for a long time.
