look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Hazy honey color with a giant white head that leaves a good deal of lacing.
S- Smell is lemon first with a light sourness and a bit of a funky note.
T- Big lemon flavor up front. There is just a bit of sweetness and a fairly assertive earthy funk. A bit of pepper, clove, and coriander in the finish.
M- The mouthfeel is fairly light with an assertive carbonation. A bit foamy in the mouth at times.
O- A well made classic Saison. There may be some out there that I enjoy me more, but this is a good example of a classic Saison. Worth trying.

Pours a lovely deeo golden straw yellow, slightly hazy, but clear enough that I can see a massive rush of bubbles up through the glass. Huge frothy white head that almost overflows the glass, even without a vigorous pour. That head is incredibly persistent, and leaves huge gobs of lacing.

Smell is fruity, but heavy on the spicy yeast. Fruits are a mix of citrus and stone fruit - sweet lemons and light peaches. The yeast is pungent, with some mild pepper. Also has a bit of that hefeweizen banana-and-clove aroma. Quite nice.

Taste is a great balance of rich, yeasty, pungent flavor with a light spice, topped by a bit of fruit. Hard to describe, as the components are all integrated in a way that makes it more than the sum of its parts.

Mouthfeel is spot-on. Carbonation feels a little high for me, but everything else is good. Dries out quickly, leaving just a touch of bitterness to linger.

A very solid saison. Definitely on the earthy/pungent/spicy side, but with enough fruit to brighten things up. It's a great example of the level of complexity that can be achieved with saisons. There's a whole lot going on, but none of it knocks you over. And it's one of the prettier beers I've encountered.

Pours a golden color with sediment from th eyeast floating about. Active foamy head that is loose structured but still rather tight. Carbonation is quite lively and active. The aroma has a yeasty and malty smell. It's pungent and sharp or acidic. taste is wseet malts with yeasty undertones. A complex taste from this lighter weight beer. There is some spiciness going on, and some acidic notes giving it a sharp and tangy feel. Then there is the bright carbonation bubbles across the palette. Ending dry and bitter, but I'm the one dry and bitter!
A good beer for pungent cheeses me thinks.

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

A: Pale golden color, limpid. Lots of carbonation. Huge white long lasting head.

S: Herbal, spicy. Also funky.

T: The attack on the palate is frank and sharp, at the same time acid and bitter. Then, the taste follows the nose with herbal, fruity but also spicy flavors. The bitterness does not linger very much. Yeasts are clearly dominating. Finishes very dry.

M: High carbonation responsible of the frank attack. Very refreshing.

O: A good shot. Representative of the style. Easy to drink (good carbonation, no excessive bitterness, low alcohol), but not watery and really flavorful. The (slight) funky aspect may surprise while looking for something more fruity however. Overall, a beer to consume on regular basis.

From my beer journal. Reviewed on September 3, 2011.

A: Pale straw golden color, very cloudy with a bit of light peaking through. Big fluffy, almost white head. Lots of bubbles. The head lasted really nicely.

S: Initially I had a bit of sunk, but it seems to have faded. A whole mess of funk after that with some sort of fruitiness. Lemon zest and herbs round it out. Very interesting.

T: Huge flavors. Hit me in the face really. Pale malts and nice herbal flavors. I enjoyed the citrusy lemon flavors that were in play. Great finish, just lightly bitter. The grassiness reminds me of the sweetgrass APA (but that's it obviously).

M: Light body with nice spiky carbonation.

O: This was a great tasting beer (and my first saison!). The funk was a little odd at first but once I got used to it (about halfway through) I realized I really liked it! Good stuff!
