Brewed 27-02-13. Batch #930. Poured in to tulip.

A - Translucent medium yellow with two fingers of white head.

S - Peppery spice, lemon, fruity esters, bready malts, light banana, yeast and bubblegum. A lot going on here.

T - Peppery spice up front with lemon, banana, clove and a light bubblegum presence up front. Some sweet and bready flavours from the malt bill and fruity esters come through more and more as the beer warms.

M -Medium body. Dry. Moderate carbonation.

Pours a slightly orange-tinged gold with very frothy off-white head, bubbles are fairly visible and webbed, and sinks in a beautiful melting-marshmallow style, leaves tinges of lacing around. Quite hazy as well, with healthy bead.

Nose is fairly fresh and organic, with some lucerne character and some pineapple esters as well. Good dose of mildly sour funk. Not excessively complex, but everything present and accounted for.

Taste is a nice fresh one, nice and complex palate. Some sour, resiny notes on the front give way to some pleasant bitter and hoppy flavours, blended well with some fresh fruit characters - mango and pineapple on there. A big rubber sensation, great deal of that, with a fair amount of barnyard funk and a carrot flavour as well. A bit of a metallic character on the back which leaves a slightly acerbic hang, almost like a corked wine. Allover a nice blend though, fairly light and fruity with good saison characters.

Beautifully textured feel - full-bodied but smooth with a great earthy feel. Wonderful.

Very pleasant and drinkable beer. Thirst-quenching and refreshing. Shame about the aftertaste which is the one downer to an otherwise great drop.

Poured into an oversized wine glass a pale golden with a touch of honey colored hue a thinner but tight formed white head atop.A mix of a aromas slightly funky with a firm toasted wheat component,some residual honey sweetness and orange linger,flavors are a bit phenolic and yeasty at the onset flollowed by some honey-like sweetness and light citrus fruit maybe a touch of pineapple,toasty thruought with a big herbal near medicanal hop finish.A solid saison here no major flaws and not overly "funky" relying more on fruity sweetness and herbal hop.

L: Pours straw gold with a slight copper tint under a 1” white clingy foam collar.
S: Light fruit in the aroma but not as much as other saisons.
T: Drinks fairly dry and clean with light malt and light fruit flavors.
F: Medium light body, medium high carbonation.
O: This is a very drinkable beer without any obvious flaws but it is not very bold.

Pours a bright yet cloudy pale orange color with an average head that dissipated into a light cap. The aroma is earthy; some pepper, light lemon and a good whiff of a banana bread. The taste is of banana bread, light citrus, and a light funk. A light hop bitterness in the end. Taste reminds me of a hefe with a little funk. Not tart like most saisons, has more of a yeast profile. Still very tasty though. The feel is moderate and has a creamy texture, finishes fairly balanced. Not a typical saison as I didn't pick up much in the way of floral notes, tartness, or the funk. However, still a very fine tasting brew.

P:  A glowing and vibrantly carbonated body of clear gold crown with a finger of white dense head. 

S:  Delicious Belgian yeast, lemon zest, oak, soft packing foam, fresh sun soaked grains, very fresh and vibrant. 

T/M:  Taste follows the nose but packs a big bouquet of fresh flowers, a touch of booze, timid grapefruit, waxy apples, apricots and white grapes.  Body is sloshy and playful with a zesty carbonated sting. Finish is super dry with lingering fruit and flowers. 

O:  A fruit packed cornucopia of yeasty flavors that meld well with the  great yeast strand. Fresh, clean and super dry a great saison.

Picked up at Calandro's in BR, and poured into a goblet. IRS a hazy deep golden color as expected from the style. About a finger of head in the goblet with good retention and really good lacing.

A good Saison aroma as well, floral with some honey notes and a little bit of sour funk.

The taste is more of the same with the floral hop notes coming through the strongest. The honey is a little faint and the funk fades into the background a good bit as well. Nothing wrong though, it's a very nice beer.

Really well done, a good example of the style. "Good" across the board on this one.

A dark gold, almost orange beer that has a solid one-finger head that dies slowly and leaves some lace. Some malts and a citric burst in the smell. A sweet malt taste is there, with caramel being prevelant. There is some tartness in there also, like sour apple or raspberries (some fruit sharp in nature). Medium-bodied and passes over the tongue with minor crispness and finishes with a drying sensation but doesn't have a funky aftertaste. Good beer.
