On tap for this review, had it when origibally released, and did a tasting of all three versions in past. This review:

Pours a hazy straw-to-golden with a fair amount if soapy head. Lacing is pretty significant, and the beer sustains a nice film of head. The nose isn't as strong as I recall, but I do get a bit of Belgian yeast funk, and some hints if the spices they use. I also get a light lemon scent.

The taste hits a bit more earthy than I'd expect from the nose, but it doesn't really have that farmhouse taste I sorta expect from a saison. I do get a bit of tartness; it's not really lemon, but something like it. After this initial taste, the beer does turn a bit dry and I get more of the spices.

Overall, I have the impression they mellowed this out from the initial offering (I realize I'm probably imagining it). I recall the spices really reminding me more of thanksgiving, maybe just the sage was a bit stronger. The smells and tastes were never overpowering, but they are muted in this pour. A decent beer that I can leave until next year's offering to try again.
