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.
