A - Pours with one finger of white foam on top of a clear, dark golden body. The foam settles slowly and leaves nice lace.

S - Musty, slightly spicy malt with herbal hops and a hint of floral character.

T - Sweet, thick malt up front with herbal continental hops in the middle. Finishes with lightly peppery yeast character and lingering spicy hops.

M - Medium thick body, moderately high carbonation, and a dry finish.

D - Well made, it hits al the right points, but it just doesn't do much for me. The hop character is nice, but the yeast never jumps out at you the way it does in the best examples of the style.

Pour produces a two finger head of white froth. Color is a hazy orange in my Duvel tulip glass.

Spicy nose with pungent coriander, floral, and Belgian yeast.

Flavor opens up after 30 minutes with a pepper bite then coriander, lemon zest and light orange. A bit more dry than the sample I tried last summer at the Oswego Brewer's fest.. That beer had stronger coriander and more sweetness which I loved but this one is still pleasant. A bit sour in the finish on the back of the tongue.

Mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Crisp and effervescent and a good representation of the style.

Ovarall I like this one though not as well as the last sample. Next I will try/review the IPA!

Three finger head with excellent retention on a golden with burnt orange hues body. Excellent lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits, floral notes, corriander and candy sugar with a little Belgian yeast. A little light but likely under the cover of the large head. Flavors is much different than expected, not very sweet, more lightly sour or tart with fruits taking a back seat to herbal hops, Belgian yeast, roasted malts and peppercorn. Medium body and moderate to high carbonation with a fairly dry finish. Nice representation of the style. My first from the brewery and I was very pleased.

Pint Bottle poured into beer clean glass.

A- Pours a two finger bright white head which settles into a nice cap after a minute. Very good sticky white lacing. Body is golden yellow with ample fine sediment.

S- A definite lemon and pepper on the nose as well as some coriander and clove. I get a little bit of the characteristic yeasty saison yeast and some definite sweetness.

T- Starts out with ample lemon, some coriander, orange peel and just a little bit of yeast on the finish which eventually dries out. I wish I got a lot more yeasty character here.

M- Low carbonation. Smooth Finish.

O- I had this on another occasion and remembered much more yeasty saison characteristic. Either way, this is a good beer I would enjoy again in the future.

Whew. This tastes like I am biting into a pile of herbs or something. It's way overboard, and the saison tones are quite soapy. No balance at all here. I think that after recently trying Liopard Oir, my standards for a saison have been refreshed in my mind. Unfortunately, this comes nowhere close. A miss, in my book.

Pours a dark golden yellow with a foamy white head. Smell is lemon, clove, pepper, some yeast. Taste is clove, lemon zest, pepper, and some yeast. Mouthfeel is light , good carbonation, lots of flavor. The lemon lingers in the aftertaste. Overall a powerful beer, interesting flavors but a bit overpowering for my tastes.

Hrd to keep the chunky sediment out of the glass. Pretty good bubbling and a strong film of foam that leaves some sticky lace and for almost all sixteen ounces.

Earthy, Spring fruit nose. Smells yeasty and dry with a just hint of melon.

Pretty sweet, yeasty flavor to this saison. One of the sweetest of memory. Dry banana and melon mixed in a light earthy melange of sweet toasted malt and soft hopping.

Palate is carbonated, but not as bubbly as I like in my saisons. Palate is dry yet oily on teh back of the tongue.
