look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy straw color with a huge frothy head and plenty of carbonation. On the smell, it's like a combination of a Belgian spice, tart apple cider, and an earthy grassiness. The taste is quite similar - yeasty funkiness, with a mild tart apple and a bit of a floral character. Not getting much of the lemon that others have claimed here, definitely comes across as more of a green apple taste to me. Not as much hoppiness as others have said either, but my bottle is 6 months old (I don't know if this is a style that ages well or not!). The body is on the thin side, but that just makes it exceptionally drinkable. Haven't had much in this style, but this is delicious! Red Rock never fails to impress me.

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.

A great pour, cloudy, hazy super light straw color. Lots going on here. First the funk! Love it! Citrus and slight banana then the spices hit you. Clove/coriander, peppery goodness and some sweet grasses and ya then there is the yeasty funk! Funk ya! Good beer!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
