375ml bottle poured into a goblet. Color: yellow Thick rocky white head. Slightly skunky, probably complements of the green bottle. Flavor: well balanced sweetness and hoppiness, some pepper like spiciness, with a nice dry finish.

Pours dirty golden yellow with a white head. Cloudy, definitely unfiltered. Aroma is rustic graininess and peppery with some grassy hops thrown in. Flavor follows suit. Mouthfeel is thin, crisp, an quite dry. Overall, fantastic saison. Definitely a leading example of the style. Worth all its hype.

I rate this a 4.65

Slightly cloudy light golden color. Smell is of bananas and citrus. Taste has banana/hefeweizen notes with a clean finish. Enjoyable refreshing beer but nothing special.

12.7 oz bottle (green glass? seriously?), poured into a tulip at approximately 45 degrees F.

A: Pours a hazy pale straw gold, with an immense two-fists-of-fingers billowy white head. Little bits of oddness drift through the brew, eventually settling on the glass somewhere like tiny freckles. Columns of bubbles rush from the bottom of the glass as though it were an aquifer running through a volcanic vent zone. Lacing would be considered, as I believe the term goes these days, "cray-cray".

S: The nose has some barnyard-style funk to it, complete with a mix of fresh grass and floral scents. There's some breadiness in the aroma as well.

T: This tastes much like it smells, opening with a mixture of light biscuit and funk, before shading into an overgrown meadow filled with grass and wildflowers. Tones of faint citrus and pollen make themselves known through the middle. The finish is quite dry, and leaves a lingering bitterness along side some slight black pepper presence. I get not much fruit character, nor much tartness - I am, however, sensitive to hop flavors, so it is possible any such notes are obscured by the grass and floral aspects to this beer.

M: Light-bodied and heavily carbonated.

O: I'll open this part by restating my disclaimer that I am overly sensitive to hop flavors, and as such, my reviews likely do not apply to the majority. This beer is a tad heavy on the hops for my taste, obscuring most of the malt profile and likely much of the yeast complexity as well. This drank closer to a hoppy wheat ale than a saison for me. Other folks will likely find this to be balanced and more complex.
