Light coloured with some retained head, and leaving a lace trail. Aroma is very good, the sage leads the nose, and there is White pepper and a blend of other spices and nices. Medium mouthfeel, its a palate tingler, but it goes down well, leading to...good drinkability. A new age saison, I may have liked this version the best.

A - Very light gold in color. You are able to see right through it. Generous head initially, which dissipates a little, but retains pretty well for the most part.

S - Strong presence of citrus and herbs, with a little bit of a metallic odor as well.

T - I'm reminded of Torpedo IPA by Sierra Nevada briefly as I drink this beer. Obviously, this is not an IPA, but there is a heavy taste of citrus and a noticeable burn on the back as well. I can also taste some grain hiding in there somewhere in the middle.

M - Moderately thin mouth feel, but I would not consider it watery by any stretch. The mouth feel leaves you wanting more, so it is effective.

O - Pretty tasty beer, but probably not the style I'd look for in the future. It was good for a change in pace from the usual, but not all that memorable for me style-wise.

Pours a two finger white head that fades very slowly leaving a good lace. Almost clear amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Savory nose and flavor follows - sweet and savory, not a fan of saisons but this is one of the best. $3.50 for a 12oz bottle from Tully's Beer and Wine Wells, ME.

Served in a pint glass

A - It is golden amber with gold highlights. An inch of off white head was perched on top.

S - It smells like floral potpourri. It is actually quite pleasant. The spices come through nicely.

T - I am pleasantly surprised by the flavors. I get lots of floral and spice tastes. The usual saison flavors are masked by the spices.

M - Moderate with biting carbonation.

O - This is a unique experience. The closest I can compare it to is Rosee D'hibiscus. I would call it more of a herb beer, since that is the dominant flavor.
