Bright gold, clear upon the initial pour - cloudy after the second, two fingers of airy, white foam yield with a gentle pour. Apricot, peach, black pepper, and grass. Firm bitterness and a raw grassy hop aroma hint at a generous dry hop addition. Proper dryness. Flavorful and refreshing - the two big requisites for a great Saison.

I had this beer on tap at the Front Door in Boise Idaho. It was a nice yellow to amber color with the white head you would expect from a Belgian beer. I could smell the belgian yeast and a nice sweetness to the beer. It was a nice mellow beer to savor- no alcohol presence- very refreshing. I was very refreshing and I could have had a few more.

4.18/5  rDev +10%

750 ml bottle, corked, caged, dated: 05/10/13
A - hazy orange-yellow with a thin effervescent head that lingers as a lacy coat. Extremely fine bubbles like champagne.
S - lightly fruity and slightly bubble gum yeasty with a touch of spice. Nothing overwhelms.
T - sharp crisp biting tart that comes and goes very quickly. A very mild sweetness that lingers throughout. Wish the tart lasted longer. Was hoping for more grassy tones as well but still is a pleasant drink.
M - high carbonation with a light body despite the malty slick feel.
D - an easy drinking saison that does not overwhelm on any characteristic aside from the very high carbonation which nears unstoppable.

Overall a nice refreshing albeit light saison.

3.78/5  rDev -0.5%

Poured from a corked and caged 750 into a snifter

A Pours a orangish color that reminds me of apple juice. It is topped with a thick pillowy white head. Also the carbonation is quite evident with lots of bubbles and the fact that the cork shot across the kitchen after opening.

S Kind of a musty funk with some clove and a bit of what seems to be apple.

T A bit earthy with a citrus note that reminds me of chewing on an orange peel. Just a bit of bitterness with maybe a touch of funk.

M Light and crisp. Excellent carbonation.

Overall this is an excellent saison, not as funky as I thought it would be but quite excellent nonetheless.

Poured into a tulip.

A-Nice light flowers and gentle spice flavors.

A- Minimal haze. Pours with a large white persistent head. Medium golden color.

F- Light phenols and some mild hop character. I don't detect any barnyard funky flavors to imply Brett.

M- Highly carbonated. Light a crisp body that clears rapidly

O- A nice standard Saison. Not too outstanding, but a good drinker and approachable.

On tap at the Hey Merchant in Houston, TX.

A: Pours a cloudy/hazy yellow color. A tow finger white head forms with good retention. Rings of lace are left behind.
S: A musky barnyard funk in the nose. Dusty, cellar like. I love it. Some hops in the mix. Spicy yeast that has some phenols. Bread and biscuit. Lots of layers that are great.
T: Follows the nose with a nice basement like funk. Some lemony fruits and slick hops in the background. Finishes with some bread and biscuit malts. Very nice.
M/D: A medium body and carbonation. Fairly crisp and refreshing. Very easy to drink. One I can quaff all day, every day.

An excellent traditional Saison. Very enjoyable and spot on for a traditional version of the style. Something I would highly recommend.

I liked it!

A: Single fingered foamy white head forms atop this murky yellow bodied brew and displayed good retention, but left behind no lacing.

S: Cloves, light spice, some barnyard funkiness, and floral notes.

T: Follows the smell exactly. Would have liked more funkiness, but he flavors present were well balanced leaving the brew very drinkable.

M: Light bodied, highly carbonated, everything you would expect to find i the variety.

O: I'd grab it again!

3.15/5  rDev -17.1%

Intense orange color, very thin perlage. Beautiful hat of foam, white, creamy. Good appearance.
In the smell malt, white flowers, some yeast: notes of sugar, bread. Few spicy notes.
Malty in the mouth, some white flowers, citrus fruitiness and again yeast. Maybe just a bit too yeasty.
Malty aftertaste, some hop bitterness, again citrus fruit and white flowers.

Big bright white head. The body is a hazy gold.

It smells of orange and straw.

I get a grassiness and a honey sweetness. Those good flavors don't hold up long due to a bitter and slight metallic flavor going on in the background that just throws this whole flavor train off the tracks.

It has a light body, medium carbonation, with a watery mouthfeel, and overall refreshing.

3.83/5  rDev +0.8%

Light hazy golden. Hint of orange. Full white fluffy head. Good retention. A touch of sandy brown where the sediment has filtered through.

Zesty aroma. Very appealing. Lemon, lime, a bit citrus (could be yeast or hops). Slightly spicy/peppery without being too sharp.

Taste starts out milder than the aroma suggests. Some spice and yeast. Clean dry finish. A bit hollow sort of. Underwhelming after the high of the nose. May be intentional to make it easier to drink. If that is the case, it works ( though that doesn't explain the 250ml bottle).
