4.2/5  rDev +3.4%

Poured from 25 oz. bottle into pint glass

A - The body is a pale straw color with a white head of medium thickness.

S - Banana, clove, black pepper, orange, and graden herbs all mingle to desirable effect.

T - A super-fresh tasting beer with a sizable hop presence for the style! The hops bring orange, peach, and even berry flavors to the tongue. Then spicy yeast esters dance over the cracker-like malt. The finish is fairly dry and bitter with lingering spice and a hint of alcohol.

M - The mouthfeel is just a hair over medium-bodied.

O - A very tasty beer. The Amarillo hops bring a pleasant fruity element to the Saison. Worth checking out.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Very light hazy yellow. Medium white head that doesn't last, but retains a few surface wisps.

Smell - Grassy and herbal hoppy aroma. Kinda yeasty and some pale malt.

Taste - Again, grassy and herbal. Much stronger pale malt. Yeastiness is intense here and kinda overwhelms. Bitter yeasty finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy and pretty malty. Kinda bitter and medium carbonation.

Overall - This doesn't work so well. The pale malt and yeast are a little intense.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

pours a hazy orange that clears up a bit,

some piney notes but overall not very strong

I enjoy Saisons very much and this is an interesting mix. The first sip definitely has that saison yeast thing, give it a second and the hops aren't to far behind. not the norm but enjoyed it!

mouth feel is nice, carbonation is decent and flavor/taste hangs around, some resin towards the end.

overall I quite enjoyed this brew and will definitely be consuming it again...

sorry for the short review... Cheers!

Review from notes dated 8/2/14

Cheers to Bilco for sharing this

A: Solid, honey gold with some yellow - pours with a medium-sized, off-white head, fades to a few wisps, leaves some lacing

S: Yup, that's a saison - very yeasty, with some spice, cloves, and grass - some citrus notes as well - light farmhouse funk, with some tartness - some pale malts, sweetness

T: Some nice saison flavors, but the notion of a "super" saison may be a bit much - earthy tartness, with a lot of sweetness - banana, clove, spice, and some yeasty flavors - pale malts and some wheat - too sweet, and booze is oddly noticable

M: Medium body, nicely carbonated, finishes a little wet

O: Well that's just super

There is nothing wrong with this take on a saison; it's just not what I am personally looking for in the style. It's a bit too sweet, a bit too boozy, and not as dry as I like my saisons.
