I love a beer that tastes like when it says it should taste like. I was afraid that the herbs would be overpowering, but the beer was nice and light, yet full, and tasted every bit like the parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme brewed into this glorious beer.

A - Pours a hazy, pale gold with a huge white head that recedes to a thin ring.
S - Getting lots of lemons and herbs from this, obviously parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. Actually, it's hard to make out any individual herbs in the nose, so let's just call it "herbal". Still, very interesting and unique.
T - More lemons and herbs. The herbs do an amazing job of showing themselves at different times as the beer warms. At fist I get mostly rosemary, sticky and resinous. Then it's the thyme, followed with the sage and then the parsley. So amazing, this is a very interesting beer!
M - Very crisp and dry, with a medium-light body and high carbonation. Very refreshing, an it pairs so well with foods.
D - Very drinkable, this should be available in 6-packs all year long. One of the most unique and amazing beers I've ever had. My hats off to Victory, Stone and Dogfish Head.

An all around great beer that will find its way into my fridge often

Taste- Same as smell, the thyme and sage come through strong, but add freshness and structure more than I anticipated

M- Light and smoothe

D- I could go all night

Recently my buddy John and I had the opportunity to stop at Moe's Tavern in Lee, MA for a very special treat: Saison du BUFF on tap! I have two bottles at home that I've been saving, and will eventually compare them against the kegged beer.

Appearance: Nice hazy straw color beer with frothy white head.

Smell: Quite a bit going on here. A tart spiciness that was peppered with herbs. Mainly sage and thyme coming through as far as the four herbs go. Some tacky sweet notes to the nose as well, like the faint aroma of honey that's been stirred into tea.

Taste: Wow! Even more going on here! Initial light sweetness breaks quickly to lemon zest, rosemary and yes, parsley (so the other two herbs come marching in). Nice back end herby notes, again with more tartness and now some bittering.

Mouthfeel: Thinner feel than it looks in the glass. Clean, somewhat dry finish. Very enjoyable.

Drinkability: This goes down like water on a hot day. The sweet-tartness up front combined with the clean bitter finish really lend this beer to be finished off quite quickly (as we discovered first hand).

Overall: I am exceptionally pleased with this beer, and can't wait to try it in bottle. Perhaps that will be on the menu this evening. If you see this beer, get it. It's limited, and is worth trying. And if you live within radius to Moe's, call to see if it's still on tap!

Serving type: on-tap
