look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

11.2oz bottle, poured into a tulip

A- pours a bright and hazy golden orange color with massive rocky and foamy head that still sits, five minutes after the pour, eventually leaving some lacing behind upon settling

S- musty basement, belgian yeast, pear and lemon, herbal aromas

T- ripe pear mixes with musty cellar & earthy/herbally notes, slightly sweet mid palate leads to phenolic notes on the finish with a hint of lemon

M- medium body with medium prickly carbonation leads to a smooth mouthfeel and a crisp finish, high drinkability

O- a classic of the style, not as bold as many of the new American versions, but super drinkable

Poured a hay like pale golden hue that is hazed out with a huge rocky snow white head that last all the way down glass leaving blankets of lacing as consumed.

Wonderful faint funk with a peppery hint that finishes with a candy sweet nose.

Easily approachable funk with peppery notes a yeasty subtle flavor that brings some pineapple like candy that goes down like honey dew vine water.

Quenching dry easy to drink brew well worth finding a good example.

Cork was dated 2/13 with NO skunky oxidized hop flavors or aromas. LOVED it!

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - golden hue, lightly hazy, with a nice amount of fluffy white head.

S - on the nose I get citrus, and a little farmhouse funk.

T - citrus, hay, a little grass, and funk with citrus.

M - smooth, yet there is enough substance to it to make it a little chewy.

O - one of the better saisons I've had. I highly recommend trying this if you have not already.

My previous review gave this low marks because it was skunked in a green bottle. Now were seeing it in brown bottles, and I can say this is the Saison standard bearer.

Pours light and very vibrant with the head. Go easy on the pour! If you can wait, the head will subside in a couple minutes.

The nose has the typical Belgian yeast aroma, frutiness, amd just a tiny bit grassy.

The first taste is Belgian, ever so slightly sour. The body is quite full and robust, indicative of the 6.5%. The finish stays with you - in a very good way.

While some may argue the ABV is higher than a traditional saison, this brew is amazing.
