A really tasty beer. Appearance is a hazy straw color that pours a real nice head. Head sticks around as well. Smell is really different. Yeasty and sort of musty. Taste is the same. Very unique, refreshing and really difficult to put a finger on. Mouthfeel is rich and carbonated. Drinkability is very good. The alcohol is low and the flavors are so unique that you keep going back for more. I would highly recommend this. They also make an organic version that is good.

a - a crisp caramel with a very thick head. There is a nice haze to it with bubbles dancing through it.

s - This is one of those beers where the nose can actually be said to be bursting. There are a myriad of notes coming through including apples, apricots, and anise.

t- There is a lot going on with this beer. It is very fruity, but not in a bad way at all. The taste sits very well on the palate, and there is a very subtle hop flavor to it.

M- When we opened the bottle and it popped like champagne, I knew what we were tearing in to. There is a lot of carbonation, which brings-out some of the fruit notes to it.

O- My wife is a huge fan of saisons, so this beer was a little bit of a surprise. Most of the saisons we've had are from American brewers, so what we came to realize as we drank it was that this beer is what a saison is supposed to taste like (not that there are not many very good American versions). We had it with Mexican food, and it was great. I cannot wait to have this beer in the summer with some of the fresh summer flavors.

Poured from 750ml bottle into Horny Devil tulip.

Pours an amazingly beautiful hazy golden yellow. Smell is a very nice mixture of bread and yeasty goodness that made my mouth water. Holy shit, I'm excited. The taste is incredible. A mixture of pepper and spices that gives way to dryness that makes me want more. This is one amazing beer. One of the best saisons I've ever had. I'll be trying this one again.

750ml poured into 2 Chimay glasses. (Split with my wife.)

This is my second go at this beer; my first was skunked and uncharacteristic.

Cloudy toasted yellow pour with a quick rising cloudy head - dense bubbles stay put for a long time. Lotsa lacing. Beautiful.

I can't get too much out of the smell, but I found: muted citrus, lemon, dirt/earth, and peppery-ness.

The taste was awesome; there is first an earthiness followed by a muted tart apple sweetness. It finishes with a blend of pepper, hops, and a bit of earth. The flavors would work well with grilled chicken & pasta.

Pleasant mouthfeel. Feels good and smooth over the tongue, but finishes dry. Great carbonation.

This would be a great beer to have on a hot day. It has a lightness to it that is very refreshing. Goes down easy.

I really enjoyed this one. My first try was extremely dull; I'm relieved that I received a good bottle.

A: Nice fine head. Very high levels of carbonation

S: Varied banana, lemon, grapefruit, honey, barnyard. Floral and complex notes.

T: Grasses and pear. Very cutting taste with grapefruit notes.

M: Carbonation and light taste. Will pair very well with salad course with citric fruits.

O: Complex and balanced. Not a flavor that is for everyone. If one likes plain beer taste, this will be too different.

Pours with a towering white head which takes quite some time to settle over the super yeast sedimented pale orangey-golden liquid. Nose is loaded with "horse blanket" aromas and fruitiness mingling with a light maltiness and yeastiness. The taste is wonderfully light bodied and hoppy, with lots of fruity overtones coupled with an effervescent carbonation makes this a very refreshing and tasty (and winning)combination. Thge finish is damm near perfect, with the fruity/sweet flavors morphing into a gorgeously hoppy, dry long finish...this is one outstanding Saison, if you see it, try it!
