I can't pass up a local saison, so when I saw this in bottles, I had to pick one up. Tasted 17 August 2013.
Pours a hazy medium amber, slightly orangey. Half-finger of fizzy off-white head, little of it and styrofoamy. Okay retention, little lacing. Not the best.
Smell is a varied bundle of saison smells, all good. Yeast and fruit are most prominent, peaches and other stone fruit. There are also earthy and spicy aromas, adding nice depth. I really dig the smell of this.
Taste is duller, but still not bad. It's warm, earthy and lightly fruity, with a touch of spice. Has a bitter fade in the finish. I like it, and it all works well together, but somehow it feels a little empty.
Feel is excellent. Medium-bodied, eruptive fizzy carbonation that backs off just as it needs to. It brings out the best of the flavor, then disappears at exactly the right time.
This is a really solid saison. It's got all the pieces, in mostly balanced amounts. There are two main things holding it back: there's no element that's particularly impressive, and the pieces don't quite come together to a synergistic whole.

P- Thanks to my buddy Matt for this brew!
A- 3 and half finger foamy head that cascades over my pint. A slplotcy lacing on the inside of pint as well. somewhat opaque and looks like jellyfish tentacles reach down the inside from the head. gold wheat color.
S- spicy pepper and lemon zest nose. gum in the back end as well.
F- pepper spice with lemon zest. complement flavors are nicely done. I also get some sweet bubblegum flavor in the mouth more than the nose had. this is quite tasty.
M-yeasty and somewhat heavy in that regards but also goes down easy an smooth.
O- a really good saison and one flavor doesn't dominate the other. It is medium bodied but goes down with ease. well worth a sixer in the summer.
