A - pours with one finger of white foam on top of a lightly hazy, dark golden body. The foam settles at a moderate pace and leaves nice lace.
S - Wheat and lots of zesty, fruity hop notes.
T - thick wheat up front with some lemon pepper. Fruity notes of guava in the middle and a finish of lemon and musty wheat.
M - A fairly thick body, moderate carbonation, and a dry finish,
D - Very nice, the hop aroma is excellent and the balanced finish makes for a very drinkable beer.

Half finger head with little retention and some lacing on a clear dark golden body. Aroma is excellent with nice presence of the hops including lemon zest, peppercorn, grapefruit, tangerine and mild yeast presence. Flavor of bready malts, belgian yeast, lemon zest, sweet and mildly tart citrus, grass and club soda. Medium body and moderate carbonation with only a semidry finish. Very nice hop additions here with the saison and Belgian presence at the base which is well balanced and not overwhelmed by the hops.

A - Poured from 12 oz bottle into Duvel tulip. A nice deep golden hazy straw color with a monster fluffy white head all the way to the top of my tulip. Slowly came down; minimal lacing.
S - Fantastic aroma of sour citrus, lemon zest, Maybe some grass and spice with floral hops. Really like the smell.
T - Nice light hop bitter up front follows with lemon zest, clove and grass with slight funk. Hints of spice with malt backbone. Bitter hop finish.
M - It felt light and fizzy in my mouth and left me very refreshed.
O - This is a well crafted Saison that would do well for anyone venturing into this style. Wish I could find beer like this in WI for summer. Thanks to deadonhisfeat for sending one my way.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle, into a footed tulip.
A: Light amber or dark golden. Pours a slight, bubbly, white head which quickly fades from memory. Very spotty lacing, mostly retreats back into the body of the brew.
S: Plenty of orange, pine resin, a little raspberry, and coriander (methinks).
T: Hay, with a really nice light hop, accentuated with a tinge of fermented raspberry.
M: Light and crisp with a dry, bitter, acidic finish. A bit of a syrupy context.
D: Goes down without much resistance.
Atmosphere is pretty good. Light, shallow hue, with only a slight head and no real lacing. Nose is a really strong combination of pine, honey, and spice. Flavor is a lightly hopped hay with a subtle touch of fermented fruit. Overall, this is a good quaff.

12oz into a tulip. Pours a crystal clear light orange copper, small but dense yellowish head, ok lacing.
The scent is rich of citrus, mango, pineapple and pear. No mustiness but a nice phenolic camphor, indubitably a high hopped saison.
Mildly sweet, mildly dry. Plenty of hops in the taste as well but relatively low in bitter. Thin bodied appropriate mouthfeel. The aftertaste has a pleasant but steep decline to just an echo. Excellent barbecue brew. This is a perfect hot mid day drinking brew.

Acquired via trade
Murky, hazy golden straw color. Quickly forming head of white bubbles, but not a persistent one. Spots and smears of stick left down the glass.
As the name of the beer implies, this has a very standard, very straightforward saison aroma--which I like very much. Grain, sweetness, dry hay and grass, earthy notes, and some cracker and cereal. Some initial Band-Aid at cooler temperatures.
The flavor is similar to the aroma: sweet grain, hay and grass, mild pepper and lemon notes, moderate bitterness. Incredibly drinkable.
Medium to fuller in body for the style with moderate carbonation. I suppose I wish the body was a bit more lively.
Very nice, traditional saison.
