Appearance: 4 - Looks kind of like cloudy, dehydrated piss, but hey, I don't really care about that.

Smell: 4.75 - It has that wonderful floral, citrusy smell that comes with these farmhouse ales that I love so much.

Taste: 3.75 - I get a nice lemon flavor up front; a little tart. A tad bit of bitterness towards the end. I actually can taste just a smidge of the alcohol on this, even though it's only like, 6%. Super refreshing though!

Feel: 3.75 - Medium body, quite nice.

Overall: 4 - Overall this is a B beer. It isn't quite as awesome as the Prairie stuff I had, but a refreshing farmhouse ale nonetheless.

Just poured from bottle for 2014. Very good head with a clear honey appearance. I'm typically not a huge Saison fan but this does well in the midst of January wondering when spring will arrive.

Appearance - Great pour with ample head. Golden honey color with minimal hazy tint.

Aroma - Not strong but a different floral smell with a yeast background. Lemon along with a hint of coriander (just a bit odd with the latter).

Taste - I probably would have had more of an appreciation if I enjoyed this Saison in April/May but nevertheless, it did provide a zesty aftertaste that was not overwhelming and lingered for less than 10 seconds

Mouthfeel - Mild body flavor with a fruity and floral combo.

Salud!

Poured out of a 12 oz brown bottle into a tulip glass. No discernible bottled by or consume by date.

Appearance - Pours a golden amber with haziness clouding the body as it settles. Some bits of goldenrod as well. Head starts out foamy, a finger and a half of thickness that is down to about a half finger after a couple minutes, and then just a thin line of foam after a couple more.

Smell - The aroma is dominated by that distinctive Belgian yeast character, with some floral undertones and subtle funk in the background

Taste - Notes of coriander and lemon with a bready, sourdough backbone. Less pronounced than the smell, and seems to fade pretty quickly in spite of the medium body.

Mouthfeel - Pleasant and well-carbonated, with some silkiness and lingering sense of the yeasty characteristics.

Overall a nice, drinkable farmhouse that could easily be a session ale, albeit a bit on the high side in terms of ABV. I wish the flavor was a bit more forward, but it's nice to find a less intense farmhouse on the market with the tendency for the style to get into the 7% and up range.
