Coriander leads the way on this beer, and I am not a big fan of that spice. That being said, the body is right, the look is great. were it not for the coriander, this would have been a good to very good beer.

Going into this with an open mind finding a bottle of this for just a dollar with a ?/04/13 date meaning this very beer is at the most a year old. They make great beer so its gonna be drinkable.

A - Not holding against the brewer but this bottle gave me a ton of big thick floaties and a 1/2 inch of head that settles slowly to a sticky lace ring. Color is a hazy orange yellow color.
S - Smell is OK mild fruity rind, some hop bitterness, and a bit of peppery bit still remain just very faint. If anything it doesn't smell skunked.
T - Citrus rind and hop bitterness bite the palate it's hard to believe such a hop bite can be achieved after a year of age! The bad is it taste slightly sour so I am not sure if it is skunked but it taste sort of off. Maybe that was a sediment chunk IDK revisits it taste decent.
M - Still very carbonated with tons of bubbles it is very drinkable but its not as smooth as their other Saisons

Overall AGAIN I went in giving it some leeway for being old and it still has a good taste for a hopped Saison. Worth picking up if you see it discounted.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a hazy medium golden amber with a half figer white head with good retention and nice lacing. Aroma of saison yeast, orange citrus, light sweet malt, coriander and clove; spicy. Flavor starts spicy and semi dry, develops semisweet citrus and fruit with a bit of funk the finishes dry with wild yeast funk and saison spice bitterness. Medium bodied with peppery carbonation. I really like the flavor progression on this saison, with both dryness and light sweetness alternating. Good fruit and malt flavors and a just enough funk to give it character. Stillwater was the first brewery to turn me on to the saison style and this is an example of how they succeeded. Nice domestic saison.

A: Golden Orange in color and hazy. Stiff pour yields nearly 4 fingers of head. Great lacing and head retention. I can see that this is highly carbonated.

S: Slight spice from the Belgian yeast but mainly pale malts. Slight orange zest . This bottle is 8 months old, so perhaps that is why I am not detecting any hops.

T: The spice is more prevalent than the smell would suggest. Orange zest. Slightly bitter finish.

M: This coats the mouth - it's quite creamy. Medium to high carbonation. Dry finish
