6 month old 330 ml bottle. Appearance when poured out is a hazy, cloudy golden orange colour, with some white froth with poor retention. Aromas are muted, was expecting a big dose of farmhouse saison earthy, dough aromas, but it was rather bland! Tastes-wise was similar, rather muted flavours, although the yeasty flavours do come through given how muted the hoppy notes were. Carbonation seems average on a light body. I think this deserves a second try on a fresher bottle.

A: Copper with some sediment, lots of fast rising carbonation, and topped with 4 fingers of yellowish, glassy, rugged head.

S: Phenols, plastic, bananas, really Belgian like. Hints of peaches.

T: Belgian phenols, banana, hints of peach tea, manufactured rubber.

M: Medium, slightly acrid, syrupy body. Moderate carbonation.

O: This is my second time having this, on Jan 9th, 2017 in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The last time was in Nimenheimin, 2 years ago in December with French cuisine in our apartment. Not quite as awesome this time on its own, but fair.

Bottle at Lager Lager Berlin.
I found this one pretty difficult to drink, it's not a sipper. Big body and very yeasty taste, seems like a belgian style ale. A sofa-drinking farmhouse ale, don't get fooled by the mid alcohol because it takes time to be finished.

Bought a bottle at the Beer Shop in East Longmeadow, MA. The beer pours with a cloudy, yellow straw appearance and a nice, bubbly head that retains itself throughout the night. Nice, grassy aromas with some malt, yeast, and breads. A little bitter with those bready taste mixed with some spice, cloves, and some light fruit. Good carbonation; helps make the beer very refreshing. Overall, found this beer smelled great and had a great mouthfeel.

looks and smells like a good farmhouse. You can taste the 7% a little bit overall is a light taste with spicy feel in your cheeks. Initially smooth with a good spice as you finish. Overall a decent farmhouse if you usually drink IPAs but if you are a Belgian fan it probably isn't for you. Good change of pace.

Evil twin is top brewer in east.

Appearance: Pours with a cloudy honey body and a bright head that little lasts and leaves little lacing.

S: Grassy, yeasty, and floral elements as expected

Taste: Yeast and fruity, up front, with round apricot and pear notes. Then a see-saw with pleasant battle of sweeter candy coupled with pepper/ spice complexity.

F: Medium body with low carbonation; creamy feel.

Complex beer that transitions though a pleasing set of yeasty flavors.

12oz bottle poured into an oversized wine glass.

Hazy light amber as a color, decent foamy white head forms up nicely but just stays for a while before sinking to some long-lasting bubble sheet on the surface along with some sticky lacing on the glass-side. Carbonation seems to be actively high.

Led by sweet crackery malt with some hint of toasted bread, then come Belgian’s yeast lends a scent of fruity ester reminding of banana, citrus and, lemon. Spice with an aroma of clove and coriander also can be sensed in a nose, as well as fresh cut grass too.

Fruity ester takes the lead along with mild tartness, peppery in the middle together with some sweet and slight astringency from crackery and toasted malt. Hop is not mute with a moderate bitterness at the almost end where same time spiciness reclaims and dominates the aftertaste together with some grassiness.

Medium body with smooth mouthfeel and high carbonation generates lively crispness throughout the palate, very dry finish. Quite complex in the palate sensation, pretty good Saison overall and I would not mind having it again.

From the 12 oz bottle in a snifter. This nice saison pours a lightly cloudy amber tinged yellow with a nice head of white foam that settles to a thick ring, subtle pool, and light lacing. Nose of yeasty goodness, crackers, lemon grass, bittering hops, and sweet malts. Flavors pass the nose by with a light lemon zest and lightly dry cracker note on the front and sides, bittering hop and grassy notes take hold on the middle, and moderately sweet honey notes take hold to cut through the tart and bitterness to make a well rounded brew. Nice medium mouth feel, mild carbonation that is perfect for the style, and a dry bitter aftertaste. Very nice and easy to drink on a hot day.

Cheers
