Had this on daft at "Joes Corner" in Niles,ca
It poured a dirty reddish tornado that filled the air with straw and grassy elements.
I pauses and think of families of workers, being refreshed with a similar beverage.

I found this quit drinkable and it is too hard to pin this style so Enjoy!

It's about time I got around to this bottle. Pours hazy golden bright yellow with a big foamy white head. Nice lacing.

Smell could be noticed as soon as the cork went flyin..Phenols and spice, banana, mild floral hops, herbal qualities, white pepper, really light funk, heavy on spicy yeast, some citrus in there

More spice, sweetness, fresh grass, some bitterness with a nice dry finish.

Full bodied saison right here. Big flavors and dry finish. Love it.

A beer that calls itself the True Belgian-Style Saison? It better be good.

First review in a while, time to get back into this. 12oz bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Hazy light honey yellow with a colossal white head that clings to the sides of the glass as if its life depended on it. Too bad I'm going to devour it; it has zero chance of survival.

S: Spicy bananas and cloves, rye bread, lemons. I personally don't like how saisons usually smell, but this one smells a tad better than the rest.

T: Refreshing ginger and orange peel comes through first, backed by a nice hop presence. The bananas and coriander come through nicely as well.

M: Crisp and robust. Very refreshing.

O: This is damn near close to perfect for a saison in my books. Light and refreshing with lively flavors. I'm so glad this brewery is close by and comparatively cheap. They really put out high quality stuff at a great price (at least around here, I know it's way more expensive in other counties/states.)

Poured into an Ommegang flute glass. Pours a light golden amber with a massive white head with great retension and chunky lacing. Aroma is very fruit forward with orange, stone fruits, pear, light sweet malt and a hint of spicing. Flavor follows aroma with sweet pear, peach, bannana, sweet malt and Belgian spicing, finishing slightly dry with the saison yeast flavor finally making its presence known. Very flavorful and refreshing. Light bodied with excellent carbonation and mouth feel. The wild yeast element seems a bit tamed down from Belgian saisons, but the other flavors are so great that it hardly matters.

I've had this bottle for a few months now. I wanted to follow the Stone Black Saison with a much better tasting saison, and I knew this was a really good one.

This looks like the best example of a saison. The beer is that wheat coloring with a lot of head on the pour. It is cloudy, as you would expect.

The smell is spot on for a saison. You get that horse-blanket presence in there. I like the wheat and the sour. There's also a little sweetness there.

The flavoring is well balanced. I like the sour, the banana, and wheat in there.

This is one of the best saisons out there. I recommend this beer thoroughly.
