First had on at Red Rock Brewpub, SLC, poured from 16.9-oz. bottle into goblet. Hoppier than traditional saisons, but traditionally-hopped rather than trendily dry-hopped.

Appearance: Pours like a Belgian, with a huge frothy head that squats atop the clear golden liquid; great stickage and impressive lacing

Smell: Chalky, with peppery yeast and a grassy, lemony character

Taste: The grassy, lemony tones dominate the front end, with a hint of Juicy Fruit sweetness underneath; in the middle, the chalky, peppery yeast protrudes; the finish is herbal and lemony

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Not a bad stab at the style, though the lemony finish is a bit of a challenge

Thanks, benkuhns, for the opportunity

500 ml bottle. Poured into snifter glass.

Appearance: very thick and foamy head. About 3 inches which dissipated a couple minutes later to a half inch. Bright hay and hazy in color.

Smell: instantly smell strong yeast. Very bread with some melon and faint nose of citrus.

Taste: sweet and yeasty throughout with some earthy bitterness interlaced. Mild citrus and fruity notes.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Smooth throughout.

Overall: there are no surprises in this beer but it is a solid Saison. Not overly hopped, not overly spiced; very fragrant and sweet. A very flavorful brew.

Poured from a 16 oz. bottle into a goblet.

Appearance was pale orange, white creamy head, and golden. Sticky lace left in glass. Cloudy and hazy.

Aroma was fruity, zesty, lemony, and funk; slight hop and spice presence; bit of floral. Quite boring as the aroma was so light that at times there was no aroma.

The taste began as light, flowery, and fruity, followed by bitter/earthy hops in the backend;peppery notes and phenols, but just ever so slightly; coriander and spice very present throughout consumption. There was a long bitter aftertaste which I was not expecting. Malt character was balanced throughout.

Mouthfeel was creamy, watery, and light bodied. Fresh and crisp for summer time quaffing pleasure.

Overall, was a decent saison. Great for summer: thin, flavorful, spicy, sweet, crisp. It reminded me of a witbier or a German hefeweizen. Not the best beer by Red Rock, but drinkable.

Clear chill hazed yellow colored beer with an enormous white colored head.

Smells of flowers and coriander with a honeysuckle malt aroma. Smells spicy and herbal and almost spells bitter. Powdery yeast scent almost like a witbier.

Starts out herbal and dry. Sharp bitter note in the finish. Earthy flavor of mushroom. Tastes like a field of flowers. Bitterness level is very high for the style.

Mouthfeel is full.

Overall an OK beer that is on the bitter extreme for the style.
