Having this on-tap. Serves in a pint glass this beer draws a clear, medium golden color with a white head that's about an inch thick when first served. Settles to a medium sized ring lining the inside of the glass with decent lacing. Has aromas of some bready malts, lemon grass, peppercorn, and a bit of a musty barnyard funk. The taste is pretty much the same with bready malts, lemongrass and barnyard funk with just a hint of slightly sour must. Has some peppercorn spice bites and some earthy hop bitterness. The flavors really balance out nicely as the beer sits and warms a bit. Has a somewhat oily, smooth, slightly crisp mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Has clean finish. A nice take on the style.

4.15/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Look: Soft pale yellow in color with an airy fluffy white head on top.

Smell: Hoppy for a saison with some belgian yeast notes and lemongrass.

Taste: A grassy, earthy, very fresh tasting saison paired with a lashing of spice and lemony hop flavor.

Feel: Light, crisp, and refreshing. Exactly what I would want a saison to have in body, texture, and crispness.

Overall: Great summer beer. I'd love to have it again!

Pale milky yellow with a soft, eggshell head that persists as a little blanket forever.

Dank, fresh green, peppery hops are abundant on the nose. Hops co-mingle with yeast well enough where you can't tell one from the other.

Peppery yeast and fresh hops also come through in taste, with creamy apple and a touch of lime.

A super soft and drinkable brew.

Enjoyed this brew on tap at Jackie O’s brewpub in Athens Ohio out of a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear-golden hue with a thin white head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace.

S: Slightly hoppy Belgian yeast aroma.

T: Similar to the smell there are Belgian yeast notes with some bitter hop flavors.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Good Belgian brew – worthy of a try.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

On tap at 3/2/2012 release event.

Pretty golden honey orange color, moderate white head.

Smells of bright flowers, lavender and honeysuckle, some gentle spice and light orange citrus.

Taste is pretty sweet, lavender floral character again, honey, light spicy hops.

Strong mouthfeel, good carbonation, nice full body, easy to drink.

Solid saison.

7.2/10
