Best buy 8/1/13.Poured into a large tulip glass a sull auburn color with a very thin head for the style,a bit suprising there.Aromas are very fruity with mild spiced phenols.A rush of fresh fruitiness on the palate with the spiced phenols complimenting the flavors very well,a bit of toasted grain and leafy hops in the finish.This is a nice saison,I love the big frutiness and drinkability for the strength of it.

This beer is in my top three for the year, and I believe it will stay in the top five. Would like to see a little more head and carbonation, but otherwise this is an excellent saison with fresh, vibrant flavor notes that have a fine balance of simplicity to complexity. My wife and I finished a growler slowly and appreciated this one across changing temperatures.

A gentle saison. I found it very pleasing. Light grassy notes give way to a toasty taste and a crisp finish. I’d welcome another bottle.

I guess I don’t have much more to add to this review right now. This sure ain’t poetry.
Beer reviews can be like that sometimes.

I enjoyed this saison the more I had. At first I wasn't sure but pleasantly surprised.

Thin head, wispy larger white bubbles which evaporate at a rapid pace, the lacing fares somewhat better, few streaks but they are thick. The liquid has a worn gold hue, captures and holds light well, dullish, plenty of big, lazy bubbles which rise at an amazingly slow pace. The nose conjures up hibiscus, apricot and peach fuzz, apple skin, sweet grains, orange peel and caraway seeds, very mild estery notes, overall lacks expressivity. Full-bodied, soft and expands steadily in the mouth, you feel it from cheek to cheek. Here you get a pleasant metallic accent and earthiness to balance out the sweetness of the peach, apple, apricot, banana fruit. Spicier too, pepper and tarragon. The citrus element struggles some but stays present. Likewise, the florality gets lost in the overall thickness of the brew. Allowing for this, there is solid depth of flavor and persistence, plus it veers away from getting bitter while at the same time not overplaying the sweetness. Thinking this would show best with some heavier fare at the dinner table than consumed on its own.
