look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A - Milky honey hue with a quickly forming head that disipated even quicker leaving a moderate lace.
S - Sweet ginger, cinnamon, and slight citrus.
T - Yeast, ginger, cinnamon, and toasted hops, decent but a little sour.
M - Chewy and a low carbonation.
D - Not bad but i found this as a rare find in a local shop. I don't know if this is getting a little old but something was a little off.

Poured this 22 oz. brown bottle into a Tripel Karmeliet glass. No date on the label. The body was a rich golden yellow with a chill haze. A hearty pour created a finger of crisp white head.

Smell was carrot cake. Unmistakably.

Taste was yeasty and sweet in the beginning. Cake, followed by a mild tartness. Spicy. Flavor mirrored the aroma -- carrot cake. Not saison-like in my opinion. Not very multidimensional. More than a small glass is too much.

Mouthfeel was medium to full with an alcohol zip in the mouth.

Thanks to aljordan for bringing this to a tasting.
Pours a cloudy light gold with a foamy white head. The smell leaps out in the pour, a slightly wheaty funk with some earth and sweetness.
Taste is really nice, by far one of the better saisons I've had. Lots of spice from corriander and nutmeg. Nice sweet cotton candy, toasted bready malts and some malted milk.
Thick and creamy and mouthcoating.

Pours a cloudy (with yeast, fairly clear w/o) golden color with a good pure white head that left some rings of lacing as it dissipated. The smell is very unlike any other saison that I have had. It has a strong aroma of nutmeg and cinnamon. Perhaps the lavendar they use is creating some of these aromas. The taste is very similar, very strong on the cinnamon and nutmeg. This is like a blonde pumpkin ale. Besides those 2 spices, the brew has floral and honey notes, a sweet Belgian pale malt (candi sugar?). No real earthy or funky qualities to this. No bittering hops or tart apple flavors, basically nothing to control the sweetness of the brew. The feel is fairly light with light carbonation, definitely finishes sweet, though not sticky or slick. Definitely a different take of a saison. Definitely a spicy brew, just not the spices that I expected. This is a good flavorful brew but doesn't hit the saison mark.

1 Pint, 6 fl oz bottle copped from Buy Rite on Oak Tree in South Plainfield...
Pours a hazy, cloudy appearance with a moderate-sized foamy head that soon dissipated and left a fair amount of lacing around the glass...
Off the bat, the aroma was very sweet... almost too sweet for a typical Saison... Fresh floral smell with sweet candied sugars dominated this one in both the nose and mouth...
Like the smell, the taste was also very sweet and somewhat medicinal, with a nice suggestion of florals, fresh fruit, lemons, citrus, clove, and honey...
Rich mouthfeel, with an about-average level of drinkability... The thing that really hurt this beer was its unnaturally sweet taste which pervaded the overall flavor and put a real dent in the overall quality of the beer...

Poured from the 22oz bottle into a tasting glass. Bottle is at least two years old. Notes from 2-2-08 tasting.

Appearance- Light clear with a finger high head. Crystal clear with ample lacing on the sides of the glass. Baby got legs, hopefully she knows how to use them.

Smell- Soapy, Irish Spring zest with a lemony orange twang. No hops, light malts and cinnamon, egg nog spices, nutmeg coriander, ginger and brown sugar.

Taste- Big nutmeg and cinnamon, light and spicy. When drinking I felt that this could be the best saison ever, but since I have had the best saison ever so I can't agree with that statement from the month old notes. Sweet and fruity, over the top with black pepper. The yeast gives it a strange smoothness. No hops. Finishes cleanly.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied, highly carbonated, not warming or astringent. Luscious and smooth. Wonderful!

Drinkability- An amazing saison. Perhaps a little too over spiced, but a pleasure to drink and I would love to get some more.

Acquired via trade from mymrnngjckt, so a big Thank You goes out to him. Poured from a 22oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a thin off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is sweet and spicy with ginger and fruit. There's also some light malts and Belgian yeast in it.

T: The taste is likewise sweet and spicy with a strong flavor of ginger that dominates. There are some background flavors of fruit and Belgian yeast along with some breadiness. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and there's a mild hops presence. The after-taste is spicy and slightly bready.

M: Smooth and very crisp, medium body, medium-to-high carbonation, finish is clean.

D: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, good kick, decent representation of style, it's a decent beer but the strong spice flavor just doesn't do it for me.

some what vigorous pour into a tulip glass.
2 finger high foamy head rises above an incredibly hazy golden apricot colored body.

Smell of apple sauce, herbaceous, a little grassy. A bit citric with notes of lemon and orange. Coriander and clove

Lemony, spicy, grassy floral hops, honey

very smooth medium body. moderate carbonation scrubs the palate.

An enjoyable brew

Bottle courtesy of Unclemattie: Poured a golden color ale with a huge foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of spicy yeast and fruity ester is really pleasant. Taste is a well balance mix between some sweet malt with some hints of fruit ester and a spicy yeasty finish with maybe a hint of cinnamon or cloves. Full body with some great carbonation. I am really surprised by how well this beer has aged and it somehow reminded me of Smuttynnose Farmhouse ale.

22oz bomber bottled 2005

A: cloudy and golden with 2 finger white head that has ok retention, fairly high level of carbonation

S: lemon, citrus zest, spices and faint pineapple. It's sort of like a Yankee Candle. There is a cinnamon like scent but not quite. Is that the chamomile? I wouldn't know.

T: spicy, tea-like quality, lemon and herbs

M: medium body and effervescent

D: very nice, certainly drinkable. very tasty but a different take on a saison in my humble opinion

Twelve Saison Avery Brewing Co.
22 oz bottle served in Goblet at 50 F

An anniversary ale brewed with lemon and orange place, chamomile, grains of paradise, and lavender. This is an attempt for greatness thus I will hold this legendary attempt to even loftier standards.

Appearance: Unfortunately, this beer gets off on the wrong foot a bit but more than makes up for it in other stats. The beer pours a clear, golden straw with moderate carbonation. The fair white head fades rather quickly to a thin ring. The moderate carbonation and poor head quality and retention are the major faults. The beer could also use a bit more haze to it. (3.5)

Smell: Amazing floral aroma. Lavender hits the nose from the periphery of the glass. Lemon zest pours out when you bury your nose below the rim. Chamomile and ginger spiciness are clearly evident. Only one minor omission. The beer is missing noble hops aroma to add earthy/musty/barn yard complexity that this style is known for. However the floral bouquet almost completely compensates. (4.5)

Taste: The tongue is tantalized with the flavors of lavender and chamomile. Unfortunately, very little citrus is in the palate. A slight EtOH warmth and spiciness as the beer passes into the esophagus. Gentle bitterness is present from the finishing hops. There is a nice spiciness on the lips and throat in the aftertaste. Chamomile lingers long as does the bitterness. Not offensive just makes better for sipping, and I am not sure this is the spring or early summer thirst quencher the saison was originally intended to be. Wish more hops contribution to flavor, more spiciness from yeast, and a touch of flavor from the malts. The herbal additions are well done. (4.0)

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Some viscosity is noted in the beer. It grabs the tongue as it slides down throat. Moderate carbonation is somewhat of a flaw. Alcohol warmth is very nice. (4.0)

Drinkability: Very impressive. This bottle is 2 yrs old and the flavors have withstood time very well. Each sip brings out the depth of these flavors. Wouldn’t exactly call it thirst quenching and may not be what the style originally intended to be. However, as an epic “anniversary” ale, a beer to be sipped and savored is more appropriate. (4.5)

Wow, so my love of all things Avery meets my love of all things limited. Here we have the Avery 12, a nice Saison, a style I really need to be come more familar with. I was really happy to be able to get one of these tro try. Decided to just open it on a whim today, guess I had a good day or something. Anyway...

A - Poured an extemely hazy golden amber. A nice two inch or so head dominated the top of it before fading gradually to reveal a frothy, soap like layer on top that was about a quarter inch in height. Large amounts of carbonation rippled up from the bottom of the glass. Very nice colr and a good amount of residual lace. Looked very nice.

S - Aroma was very lively. A ton of spice was locked inside of here. Huge aromas of cinnamon and bananas were the most prevelent and were there from the very start. As it warmed some peaches and maybe some fig started to come through. A nice light, summer like aroma, but quite nice and strong.

T - Wow, this was definatly an intresting brew for sure. Huge amount of cinnamon and nutmeg hit me from the start. A good spicey banana with a touch of apple was to follow. Nice long lingering, fall like flavor. Really very full. Some figs and a touch of a grassy flavor as well. This was really unique. Great flavor, and so refreshing.

M - Feel was super smooth with great carbonation. Lots of little bubbles gave it the nice full, popping flavor feel. Almost silky like. Great smooth finish, a touch dry, but really nice finish.

D - Awesome. I could sip this one all night long. It was just so light and refreshing, I really just could not get bored of it. Just was like a nice fall evening, really a finely crafted brew.

Overall this was fantastic. I really enjoyed trying this Avery brew. The fact that it has been retired is sad, but still hopefully one day it comes back or I can snag another bottle somewhere, FAantastic brew!

22oz bottle into a tulip glass.

Pours a pale straw color with a 1finger white head that drops to nothing quickly. No lacing to speak of.

Smell is at first overwhelming. Too many things going on at once. Lavender, and grains of paradise and some odd lime scent.

Taste is very limey. The spices used in this one seem to meld into a weird taste that just doesn't seem to work for me.

Overall, I was dissappointed by this brew. Most of Avery's offerings are top notch, but this one is just off in my opinion. It is a very muddled attempt at a saison. Oh well, I've got some of the Fourteen left, and I love that one.

vintage 2005 bomber

a - poured carefully as to leave sediment in the bottle. pours a one finger thick fizzy white head into a snifter. leaves a nice ring throughout and as the beer warms the fizziness becomes much thicker and billowy with each swirl. the body is a clear, light straw yellow.
s - i can smell the orange peel from a distance. lots of different things going on here, such as cinnamon toast with butter, citrus and floral tones.
t - malty, spicey, bready and lemony.
m - crisp.
d - a bomber of this might be a bit much. it's very tasty but can overwhelm the pallate. 12oz is perfect for this.

Thanks to number1bum for this treat.

22 oz. bomber poured into a tulip glass.

Pours a murky burnt straw color with a nice fluffy white two finger head that takes a while to die down. Stickiness grabs a hold and won't let go. Smell is huge in the spicey cinnamon with a hint of nutmeg. Very sweet sugary goodness, maybe even a bit too much. Taste starts off with a sugary pumpkin pie flavor followed by a yeasty kick. Aftertaste is very...blah. Way too much sweetness, overpowering on the tongue. Mouthfeel is pretty light bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Drinkability suffers because of the extreme sweetness. I'm not sure if this is more of a summer saison or suitable for winter months because of the nutmeg/cinnamon flavors, either way it's not the best of beers.

2005 vintage which I picked up from a local beer guy’s cellar.

A: A pretty straw yellow color that exhibited a pretty pillowy white head when poured into my Maudite tulip.

S: There is a huge aroma of pumpkin pie spice in this one. After the hit of spice clears there are yeasty undertones with hints of citrus melded in. If those fancy candle companies in the mall could reproduce this aroma they would have a best seller.

T: Being a fan of Saisons I like this one. There is a strong spiciness about it with a nice marriage of lemon peel and bready yeast. I think I detect some hops in the finish.

M: This one is smooth with some carbonation. I would ask for a little more carbonation in the perfect Saison.

D: Somewhat. It goes down smooth, but this is a one bomber beer. Sharing it would be ideal.

Overall: I like it, I don't love it, but I truly like it. This one has aged two years so I don't know what that has done to the taste (muted or enhanced). We all know Saison means season, but to me it means summer. There is no better beer to enjoy during this wonderful season. Today is another hot summer day in Florida and this one hits the spot. Avery makes great beers and they should be proud of this one. If you like a nice spicy Saison this may be the one for you. If you can't get it, which you probably can't drop me a beer mail. My beer guy has a case still in the cellar. It’s not Rabid Rabbit, but is worthy of quaffing.

Part of NEPA BC split #2.

22oz bomber pours a hazy golden color. Pillowy white head that dissipates slowly and maintains nice lacing down the glass. Smell is strange. Sour grapes, lemon zest, coriander, vanilla, nutmeg. Taste is very spicy - the only ones I can detect are coriander and nutmeg, but I feel like I'm tasting clove as well. Also very bready and yeasty tasting, with just a quick snap of hop bitterness at the end.

The aftertaste leaves me feeling as though I've ust eaten a slice of pie a la mode with french vanilla ice cream. Lively carbonation and a medium mouthfeel. This is really different than anything I've had before, even other saisons. Really odd and a bit much spice for my taste, but an enjoyable experience nonetheless. I have another bottle but I think I'll share it with someone as I don't love it enough to down another bottle solo.

One of the last vestiges of my last jaunt to Brew Haus in Amherst, MA New Years of 06/07.

Pours semicloudy honey color with a thick short foamy head, a little bit o lacing. Nose is heavy with coriander, vanilla, and some other undiscernable spice. Taste is almost as sour and yeasty as a gueuze but has the various spices and herbs peaking at different times. Not sure this is well balanced or not, but very interesting and unlike most brews I have tasted to date. Mouthfeel is a bit clingy and old yeasty tasting, but altogether a rather unique beer that, if I had the luck of finding another bottle, I would probably get again.

Lightly hazy golden lemon comes off dirty, topped by a thick, stubborn, off-white head. Nice lacing. Citrus and spice dominate the nose. Lemon bars, orange zest/peel, cardamom, chamomille, vanilla, brown sugar, maybe some cinnamon coffee cake. Wow, and a bit strange. Kind of like a spiced winter warmer mixed with a tart, lemony-floral saison/apa. The crazy spicing is maybe a little overboard, especially since I am not a big fan of overspiced beers in general.

Baking spices, coffe cake, and sugary malt flavors up front. Citrusy fruit sweetness comes through. Lemon zest and orange peel tartness near the finish. Spices throughout. Lemon-bar cookie sweetness hangs on into the mildly bitter finish. More spice than hops. Doesn't dry out enough to avoid being cloying. Medium-full body with tickly, bottle-conditioned carbonation. Not bad, but not really my forte. Still, I'll give Avery credit for trying an interesting take on an under-produced style.

Interesting beer. I know its retired, but I'm just getting around to trying it, and it still tastes fine. Not your typical Saison, but loads of interesting flavors. Pours a slightly cloudy pale golden with a nice white foamy head that fades down to a thin cap but that also leaves some good lacing.Smell is a little faint, but there are notes of anise, pineapple, spearmint. These aromas fade pretty quickly, unfortunately. The flavor is quite nice if atypical for the style. Lots of anise flavors, candied citron, coriander, banana, and a slightly nutty finish that is probably from the age. The mouthfeel is a little too spritzy for my taste and a tad rough, but with good body and some creaminess. Such and interesting beer to drink and perfect on my porch on this beautiful spring day.

Wow is this one all over the board!

I gave it a 4.0 on appearance, because...
It really does look nice in the glass. A golden hue with a nice white head, I must say, that sure looks good.

Smell also earned a 4.0 only...
For that cinnamon/apple aroma. Yea, I know, I'm way off track here. I mean, I'm supposed to be reviewing a beer not a dessert. But man, it's like a fresh baked apple pie, or a scented candle in my glass. I like that smell.

Taste, well, just a 2.5. I don't know what Avery is thinking here. Twelve is no where near any Saison that I've ever had before. In fact, it really is a far cry from what my nose got out of it. It starts out with a bit of fruitiness then goes right to dry. The olfactory senses would lead you to believe that this would be a bit fruity, but it is actually on the bitter side. Not like hop bitter, but something else. Kind of like unsweetened spices. Not as all what you'd expect from any Saison.

If you can ignore the smell and taste, and just concentrate on the mouthfeel, it's not that bad. Balanced carbonation, not that heavily bodied. Alcohol seems well hidden.

Overall, drinkability is average at best. A hundred times better than any BMC offering, but that really isn't saying much. Paired against any Saison from Belgium, I'm afraid it would be holding up the rear. Worth a try just to say you had one. As far as me, I can't see myself searching this one out ever again.

Appearance: Attractive apple cider color, good head, decent retention, some lacing. Hazy.

Smell: Citrus, coriander and grain of paradise dominate. None of the distinct Belgian yeast character is detected, nor the farmhouse ale "funk" - not a good sign...

Taste: Sweet lavender at the tip of the tongue, citrus middle, apple and chamomile finish. Vaguely cidery. Overwhelmingly spiced. In this style, the yeast should shine, not added spices, but that was not the case here... Nothing in the way of hops or malt - all spice, all the time. Disappointing.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body, well-carbonated. Finishes acidic and dry, leaves a bitter aftertaste.

Drinkability: Way too overspiced. Not what I was expecting. I'm tasting this after it's been "retired," though, so perhaps it hasn't aged well at the store.

This beer was bottled in 2005 so I have no idea how well it has held up (it is a saison, so it should last a while), but the store was selling it for 3.99, so what the heck?

A- Hazy golden orange with a fairly small white head. Head goes down quickly.

S- Has a nice sweet and tart smell. Fairly fruity with apples and pears in the nose, along with some spices, cinnamon, and just a touch of alcohol.

T- Lots of spices in the taste. I'm getting cinnamon and ginger. Sweet upfront, but finishes fairly dry. Alcohol is somewhat evident on the finish along with a touch of bitterness, but not much.

M- Surprisingly full. Would probably benefit from a lighter mouthfeel. Decent carbonation.

D- Not too bad, but I probably wouldn't want more than one.

I actually liked this one. I was kind of skeptical since it was two years old and being sold cheap, but it ended up being pretty good. It doesn't really taste authentically Belgian, but it's not bad for a domestic saison. I'm not sure if all the bottles are holding up as well as this one, but if they are, then certainly pick one up if you see it, especially if you can find it cheap. Recommended.

Bottled in 2005, purchased at Riley’s for $6.99.

Appearance is perfect. Pours into my snifter a bright, translucent pale yellow with lots of bubbles and huge amounts of froth – just tons of head, thick, foamy, bright clean white. A stunning beer.

The nose is problematic. It seems off, wrong somehow. There is an immense amount of coriander in the nose but it’s not terribly pleasant. It seems like rotten coriander, the kind that’s been sitting on the bottom of the vegetable tray in my fridge since burrito night 4 weeks ago. Some other kind of spice is really strong. It reminds me of Christmas but it’s not clove or cinnamon, perhaps its stale nutmeg? There is a lemon meringue pie quality too.

Taste/MF: hmm, spicy, spritzy…chamomile, shit! I’m fricking allergic to chamomile. I sure hope this flavor is coming from the hops or yeast. If chamomile was actually added to this beer, I’m going to have one runny nose and swollen throat in a little bit. Ricola cough lemon-herb cough drops. Medicinal. Intense and bold but not right, definitely not my cup of tea. Seems stronger then it is.

Drinkability: Very Christmasy. Around the holidays this might go nicely but now? I want winter to be over with. I don’t want to be reminded of it. Very odd.

Note: just read the label. There is chamomile in here. Better go take some anti-histamines before I pour the rest of this down the drain. Darn!
