Last of a twelve ounce four pack.

Appearance: Pours clean and golden and spurts forth a mountainous off white head. Nice sticky lacing throughout.

Nose: Smells like summer, which is a sour citrus, light hops and hint of apples.

Taste: This was kept a little too cold for my liking so I gave it time to warm up and let some of the flavours loose. Tart lemon zest flavor that moves to a sweeter flavor finishing up with a hint of hops. Generally subtle flavors.

Mouthfeel and Drinkability: Proper carbonation and mid to light bodied. I could have a couple on a hot summer day, but would stop at two.

Notes: Solid all around Saison. Recommended and I like to use it for cooking as well, but it's not a beer I always have on hand.

One of my personal favorites (a now one of my wife's favorites as well).

A: Pale gold, slightly cloudy, with an absolutely huge head

S: Yeasty, estery, with funky spices.

T: A beautiful balance of sweet malts and esters balanced by a nice sharp bitterness and spiciness. Also a nice backdrop of horseblanket that rounds things out. I have to say that even though the bottle says to leave the yeast behind, I think the added yeast really improves the character, making everything softer and mellower.

M: A great creamy/spritzy combo that works well with food.

D: So refreshing, so complex, a beer for almost any occassion.

Dark golden color, with a white head. Head dissapates quickly, but carbonation continuously replenishes it. Aroma and taste contain honey, spice, and citrus. Highly carbonated, very crisp, and drinkable.

This is a great beer for the price, $4.50 for 750ml in Indianapolis.

Finally got around to picking this one up. 750 ml bottle poured into a tulip.

A: Slightly cloudy, yellow color. The pour created a big three finger head that left some nice lace.

A: Belgian yeast, orange, lemon, light spice, and grass. I thought the nose was a little light overall.

T: Pretty straightforward. Lemon, grass, pepper, and orange. The belgian yeast imparts it's traditional notes. I don't think this is very complex, but it's nice nonetheless.

M: Light body, aggressive carbonation.

O: I was slightly let down by this one. But that doesn't mean it was a bad brew, infact, it was very good. I guess I was expecting a little more complexity and a little more originality. But still good, and worth the try. Skal.
