Golden pour - nice inch head - off-white. Nose of fresh cut hay and yeast.

Carbonic entry, again, hay, grass, yeast and straw. Nice bite to this beer. Flavors are upfront. Fresh. A nice food companion. I tasted this with crackers and sharp cheese - held up quite well.

A very well done saison - a bit pedestrian compared to belgian syle (I was just there), but hits on all charachteristics, fresh flavors and decent depth.

A. Beautiful pale straw pour with small but luxurious head. Nice bit of carbonation.

S. Hoppy with grapefruit-like aroma. Crisp, citrusy, and light.

T. A great balance of hoppy flavor, pale malts, citrus and excellent dry finish.

M. Good bit of carbonation. Nice, light, and dry.

D. Bring on the summer work and keep these nearby and you'll be a happy camper...if you like the type than this is your beer.

Wow. Just... wow. Poured a hazy honey colored with a white head that fell to a nice Belgian lace that wouldn't go away. Sweet and fruity nose, yeast and earthiness, such a fantastic aroma. The flavor had accents of fruit, rum, cider, spice, all wrapped up with a nice crisp finish. Very full mouthfeel, and an enigma in every sip. Very tasty.

A-pours a hazy straw yellow color with a foamy white head that leaves very nice lacing
S-spicy, banana, clove, some straw/barnyard smell
T-more banana and white fruit mixed with spices.
M-medium bodied while maintaining a nice crisp characteristic
O-very refreshing and drinkable for the abv. I'm not saison expert but this is a very solid beer. Highly recommend
