This beer is a lightly cloudy gold leaning orange. The head is a very large pure white one, extremely fluffy, with lots of stick. Lots of bubbling activity keeps it moving in the glass and continues to build up the foam. The volume of lacing on the glass is quite high, dissipating little as it goes.
This has a classic Saison character that suggests the brewers know the style. It has all the dryness it should while being light but packing in the aroma and flavor. There's lots of yeasty earthiness, bread and banana, plenty of pale fruits, and lots of spiciness both sweeter and dry. There's something floral/leafy to the light hops bitterness that adds good balance, some tropical fruits and a bit of citrus rind in the end.
Maybe it was a particular batch, but this one was filling and a bit overly fluffy. It was in every bottle poured, though. It effervesces to the point that it's almost difficult to swallow, and it has to sit to settle even slightly. Still, the dryness is at the right level and it shows even crispness and smoothness when given a chance.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a tulip. Batch 599 brewed 10/4/13 bottled 10/30/14
A: Hazy brown color with a generous 1+ finger head that slowly settles
S: Bready malts, floral and a hint of banana
T: Matches the nose. Malt/floral and a touch fruity. The finish has a funky bitterness that I can't attribute to anything pleasant
M: Medium-bodied, a touch sweet, good carbonation
O: I have to kick this up a notch given the awesomeness of the art on the back label. Otherwise would be a 3.5. I recently purchased this year-old bottle and while I know the style can age, I question its storage. Good as is but I think it would show better young

You have to like Saison's to enjoy this beer. It poured a cloudy yellow color with white head that dissipated. The scent carried mostly floral tones. The taste to me was similar to that tanish clear Life Savor (tropical fruit mixed with hints of butterscotch). The mouthfeel was medium in body with little carbonation. Overall its a solid beer but have to like Saisons to thoroughly enjoy.

Received this as an extra in a trade...Rough winter so far so lets see if this will help things out.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a very nice gold hue with an explosive three finger rocky, sudsy head that fades to leave nice side lacing. Quite good so far.

S - Aromas of bready malts, light grains, gentle funk/barnyard notes. Belgian yeasts, faint banana, light spice notes (coriander/peppercorns). Not getting much citrus.

T - Taste is well, like an amped up saison (which is what the brewers were going for). Nice bready malts, grains, much stronger barnyard and belgian yeast notes. Big time esters, banana, peppercorns. Decent alcohol bite on the finish before transitioning back to belgian esters.

M - Mouthfeel is very nice, medium body, good carbonation. Helps keep this light on the tongue.

O - Overall, this was a tasty saison. I dunno, I guess with the beautiful attached artwork on the label I was expecting something more elegant or more out there. Well crafted saison that does not really break the mold.

750 ml caged and corked bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with about an inch and a half off-white head. The head stays around a long time, and there's a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like bready malt, apricots, citrus peel, banana, Belgian yeast, and some floral hops. The taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also some earthiness and peppery spice noticeable. There's a good sweet and spicy finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit creamy with moderate carbonation. I think it's a good saison, another good beer from Rockmill.
