Pours a light honey with noticeable lacing from a 2-finger thick cream head. Smells of fruit and wheat. Light honey also on the nose. Definitely a strong body of wheat with some fruit notes and a more bitter finish. Also, some hops are detected but mostly it's the tart body. The mouthfeel is light and bubbly. Overall a good Saison and something i could drink again, though i doubt that they will brew it again.

Bottle poured into pint.
A- Cloudy light golden ale.
S-Bread, Malt, very little yeast. Light pear presence.
T- Very light very crisp. High carbonation. Light yeast. Fruit aspect some light berry yet bitter berry to the tongue.
M- Effervescent. Light to medium mouth feel. Quickly dissipated on the tongue.
O- Thirst quenching; the nose follows the body. Very well balanced. Fruit with malt finish. I love how clean the finish is on this ale. Very dry after finish. Cheers.

A: Pours a hazy golden with a white head.
N: Nose is fairly typical of a saison. Notes of wheat, orange peel, coriander, cardamom, nutmeg, a tiny bit of Belgian yeast funk, and some fruity Belgian yeast esters.
T: Taste is pretty much the same, cardamom, nutmeg, fruity Belgian yeast esters, funky Belgian yeast, wheat and orange peel.
M: Medium bodied, and smooth for the style.
O: Recommended. This is a solid example of the style. Definitely worth a try, as is anything from this brewery.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 7/12/2013. Pours hazy bright golden amber color with a 2-3 finger fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, clove, pepper, grass, banana, bread, wheat, floral, herbal, light bubblegum, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of yeast ester notes with light malt balance; and good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, clove, banana, pepper, wheat, bread, pepper, grass, floral, light bubblegum, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, clove, pepper, bread, wheat, floral, grass, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast ester flavors with a light bready malt balance; and zero cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very crisp, prickly, and smooth mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with no warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice saison! All around nice balance and complexity of yeast ester flavors; and smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Poured into a Perfect Pint.
A=Golden Apricot, with typical murkiness; very frothy head.
S=Hint of apricot and cream.
T=Initially, it was very harsh and over the top...taste and drinkability improved as it warmed up...apricot and cream, but also a harshness. Alcohol is evident.
M=Oily/slick feel...not a session beer and a bit hard to drink.
O=I don't particularly care for the style, but this is a decent representation...still, nothing spectacular; worth trying...I received as a gift and wouldn't buy.

Appearance- Pale yellow amber with a slight haze, finger and a half of eggshell white head
Smell- the glass doesn't even have to be close by to note the strong yeasty scent, definite Belgian-style spicy esters coming from the glass
Taste- light malt mild sweetness with spicy notes of clove and allspice. Breads and grains are prominent
Mouthfeel- light bodied, a little watery, smooth
Overall- Saison for the spring, the strength is in the aroma while the taste is just a tad too light for it to be a solo beer

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a medium honey amber with a finger of fine white head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, phenolic spiciness, wheat and a hint of sulfur. Flavor is wheat, Belgian spicing, sweet bready malt, finishing drier with a lingering neutral hop and spice bitterness. Light bodied with a pleasant mouthfeel from active carbonation. Sweeter and less complex than most saisons, but a pleasant, easy to drink ale with good saison characteristics. I enjoyed this domestic take on the style.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Imperial Pint.
Appearance: Hazy honey with thick, bubbly white head.
Smell: Earthy aroma, with dried out banana, clove, citrus and white pepper.
Taste: Very similar to the aroma, with the same mix of flavors. Pretty tasty, but the finish is sharp in an odd way.
Feel: Light body, moderately high carbonation, dry finish.
Overall: Much better than the average in my opinion. It seems that the lower abv Saisons usually get lower scores.

pours a hazy golden with a massive white head. Smells like musty , earthy barns. Taste begins with a big pepper flavor. After that is some lemon, then wheat grain, and a tart, dry, citrus rind finish. Mouth feel is pretty good. Overall quite a good Saison.
