3.59/5 rDev -4.8%
350ml bottle poured into a tulip glass.
A: Pours a slightly hazy golden color. About one finger of a white foamy head with almost no retention at all, dissipates very quickly. High carbonation, streams of bubbles are visible coming from the bottom of the glass. Almost no lacing left. (3.75)
S: Very strong smell of thyme, ocimum, sage and rosemary. After many sniffs, I still can't detect the parsley. The malty character of this beer is pretty much all hidden by the strong herbs smell. I can feel grassy and spicy hints and also lime zest. The aroma itself is very refreshing. More so than the taste. (3.5)
T: I thought the taste would completely follow the nose, but it isn't quite that way. Thyme, sage and rosemary stand out upfront, but the malty character appears later on, with a lot of carbonation. Belgian yeast is strong, giving the beer a touch of funkiness. The alcohol is pretty much undetectable. (3.5)
M: Light-bodied, very crisp and dry. Malty and bready aftertaste, with a herbal touch. (4.25)
O: Even though I found this brew very interesting and unique, the addition of the herbal spices wasn't great. A more citrusy touch and a less herbal touch would make this beer better in my opinion. Still refreshing, not as much as other Saisons, but very unique. I would have this again, but there are many other Saisons I would pick over this one. (3.5)

3.9/5 rDev +3.4%
Brilliant golden with a moderate ivory head. Notes of lemon, thyme, and rosemary are accompanied by a touch of must and sage. Flavor is savory, with sage and parsley cleanliness forming the base, and lemon and thyme hitting mid palate. Rosemary carries into the lightly bitter finish, and notes of mint. Nice savory beer that I'll buy again and hold back for thanksgiving dinner.
