Sampling a cellar temp 22 oz bottle poured into a snifter. The beer pours a clear copper color with a large fluffy and frothy bleached white head of 3.5 cm.
The head fades to a thin edge layer fairly rapidly after the pour.
Aroma is bready yeast with some white grapes and pears mixed in with just a little spicy hop character.
FIrst sip reveals a lighter than anticipated body with very fine and tingly carbonation.
Texture is smooth and silky very easy to drink, enjoyable.
The beer gets a little cloudy towards the end of the bottle poured into my glass.
Flavor is grainy malt and some bready yeast, I also get some sweet fruit. Pears and some white grape again, as in the nose. The beer is amazingly drinkable and enjoyable.
I dont get any hint of the booze and the finish is dry and a little sweet.

Quite a nice beer that is perfect for a warmer day, I would pick up bottles of this again.

On-tap 5/20/2013 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub in Pawtucket, RI, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a light yellowish gold color, with a short white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains esters, Belgian yeast, wheat, light caramelized malts and some citrus.

T: The taste starts with a touch of sourness and spice that is quickly followed by breadiness from wild Belgian yeast and a thin malt character. Then there’s some mild background sweetness from flavors of citrus and banana. The hops presence is very mild but creates a very good balance. The after-taste is bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

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

Serving type: on-tap

Big thanks to beersndrums for this one! Another new brewery that I’ve tried because of this guy!

22 oz bottle poured into a globe at cellar temperature.

L – Pale gold color with a huge 5-finger creamy, frothy, white head that lasts forever. There’s some nice lacing going on here, too. Slightly hazy with a lot of carbonation bubbles.

S – Grainy, bready malt, citrus and banana esters, some grassy hops, and peppery and somewhat funky Belgian-style yeast. Really nice.

T – Starts off mildly sweet with bready malt and citrus and banana esters. Grassy and earthy hops come in next, followed by peppery and musty Belgian yeast at the finish. Tasty.

F – Light-medium-bodied, good carbonation, a creamy but crisp mouthfeel, and an earthy, musty, and dry finish.

O – This is a really nice saison. It fits the style to a tee and is very tasty. It’s very drinkable, and the 7.8% ABV is nowhere to be found. Thanks for the beer, Jared!

4.11/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a cloudy amber color with a rocky head that leaves a few strands behind as it descends

Smell: Bready malt with a slightly toasty character; complex grains (porridge-like); a hint of fruit (apple, lemon and banana); white pepper and just a touch of farmhouse funk

Taste: Tart fruit flavors arrive first, with lemon, banana and apple cider tones; by mid-palate, the complex malt bill adds a range of cereal flavors; grassy hops arrive with the swallow; and the bitter and slightly tart flavors bring up the rear, though there is an unmistakable floral aspect to the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A very interesting beer with a lot of complexity in the flavor profile; nice to see the brewery go out on a limb, here

4.09/5  rDev +5.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: Poured a light, hazy orange into a Newport Storm tulip with a very small head that fades quickly and leaves surprisingly little lacing on my glass. This looks very much like a hefeweizen at first glance.

Smell: I get a bit of citrus, and some grassy undertones characteristic of the style. Not a ton going on here but still pleasant to the nose.

Taste: Definitely get the citrus tastes of orange and tangerine, with a belgian character from the yeast. There is a bit of sweetness here but not a ton, this is a very tasty farmhouse ale.

Mouthfeel: Wonderfully crisp and smooth, light carbonation, and this goes down extremely easily. The alcohol is masked extremely well and this is light drinking with a bit of sweet creaminess.

Overall: This is an awesome saison from Foolproof Brewing Company that I could easily drink a ton of. It is a perfect interpretation of the style and one of the best from Foolproof thus far. Definitely try this if you can.

Another one I've been dying to try from Damasse.

Pours a nice fizzy 1+ finger head that fades at a decent rate, with nice soapy lacing that also seems to fade, mostly clear golden honey colored beer.

Nose is pretty much what I expected, start with nice saison aromas, the right kick of esters, nice light phenols, bit farmhouse like, Belgian aromatic floral esters and very light spices like aromas, very faint lemon zest, the esters bring that fruity apple skin and touch of pear, and light grainy wheat like grassy malt character.

Taste starts with a bit of sweetness, Belgian golden like malts, with some light toasted wheat and grainy flavors, little cracked wheat almost. Then nice saison flavors, good kick of esters again, touch of apple skin and pear as well, nice blend of phenols with that, and touch of warming booze, faint saison spices with that, and touch of farmhouse flavors, then a bit of light citrus and rind. Some bitterness, a touch of a grassy lemony hop, and some citrus rind bitterness from the yeast I think. Finish is a little sticky but drier, lingering citrus, light esters and touch of phenols, light kick of booze, and sweet Belgian malts.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb, faint touch of warming booze.

Overall a nice saison, pretty much what I expected for a saison. Doesn't do anything very special, but well done, nice malts, good yeast characters, and nice bitterness with a touch of hops. Pretty good beer.
