Poured from a bottle shared at Ronzonie's Haus - 5/15/2010.

Hazy golden in color.. Aroma is the expected farmhouse scent - bready & yeasty. Barn-funk yeastiness and astringency at first sip. Tasting some wheat flavor as well. Oily and mouth-coating. Quite refreshing; overall a fine summer sipper.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured a deeper cloudy gold with a thinner white head. The head lingers on leaving some sticky soapy lacing. The smell is quite good, with some nice deep fruity esters and hints of spices. The taste hits it just right with some notes of grain, banana and sugar. It has a thinner body and is a well-made saison.

3.53/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle poured into a Stella chalice

Pours a clear, pale, orange color with a half finger of white foam. Aroma is quite spicy, with lots of banana flavors as well. Certainly a yeast dominated nose.

First sip is quite sweet, with a rush of crystal malt flavor followed by a yeasty banana like finish. A lot sweeter than many saisons that I've had - honestly I would enjoy this more if it finished much, much drier.

This beer is interesting, but I wouldn't score it highly as a saison. While I like the banana forward flavor, I feel like a more varied yeast profile and drier finish would improve it.
