look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Pours out a hazed, dark yellow toned body with a sudsy, bubbly, white head.

Smell: Sourish, funky notes atop the basic barley with touches of lemon rind and a floral touch blooming into a scent of menthol.

Taste: A faintly sweet taste of oven-crisped barley grains. Low, low hint of lemony citrus. Sliced tarnished fruits cut by unclean hands. Spiciness astringency akin to mentho-lyptus cough drops. Drying finish replete with muddled tastes.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Lightly carbonated, so don't let that sudsy head fool you.

Overall: I wasn't too fond at all of the flavor profile here and felt it just lacked pizazz as well as any cheerful effervescence.

Chilled bottle into a glass. A toast to ramnuts for sending this my way. Thanks, Frank!

A: Pours a brilliantly clear sunset orange-copper body that looks darker than I expected for a saison. Even a mild pour yields 4 fingers of well-retaining off-white head, and it leaves great streaks of lace down the sides of the glass. There's more foam than beer in my glass, but other than that, it looks great.

S: An intriguing aroma of lemon zest, apple skins, green grapes, bananas, a touch of earth, white pepper, and restrained, musty yeast. Some light sweetness to the nose gives it an aroma reminiscent of a tripel. A touch of alcohol knocks it down a peg.

T: Mild sweetness leads the way, lending a nice accent to the fruity ester-given flavors of apples, pears, grapes, and bananas. The beer closes with a touch of white pepper and yeast in the finish. Earthy flavors emerge in the aftertaste.

M: This isn't particularly dry, and a little wash of carbonation that closes each sip creates a distracting, burpy experience that prevents the beer from being completely refreshing. But it's solid.

O: A decent saison, but I've had better.

Taste: anticlimactic. Smell a real tease, though: very yeasty and greeny: dandelion greens, grass greens. Very nice body. Too much carbonation -- first time I've ever thought this as a demerit in a beer, but so carbonated with the tiniest of bubbles en masse one associates with champagne, that it gets in the way. Once you do arrive at flavor--I'm disappointed. I could have and should have gotten Le Merle. But I wanted to try something new, and this saison is too astringent, too skunky and ungenerous in its flavor that it is quite the opposite of a farmhouse style, or what I associate with the best of them: ample but not rich.

Bottle from Made in Oregon.

Body is a cloudy mellow gold. Stiff, stubborn, popmarked off-white head.

Smells of pungent clove, bitter rind, & fruit juice. Dusty malt, leaves, alcohol, & Play-Doh on the backend. Unrelated, but the wax on the cap has this awesome ambergris scent to it.

Belgian, sticky tripel sort of sweetness. Pretzel-like malt. Lemon twang. Mellow yeast. Beer is pretty warm by now. A little mushroom. Leafy, shy, bitter finish. Frothy. Strong carbonation that faltered when I needed it.

A bit too sweet & heavy for me. The brett version thinned things out nicely though.

We’ve got a gusher...the beer itself is a hazed golden orange color with a very large white head. A nice fruitiness on the nose, mostly tropical fruit type notes. Bread and cracker malts give it some substance and there is a lot of yeast in the aroma as well. The flavor isn’t quite as good as I would hope. It’s somewhat boozy and there’s a little bit of cardboard and metal to it. Still, some grass, fruit, malt, and even a little bit of spice, which are pleasant characteristics.
