    Light gold color. Large white foamy head. Aroma is barnyard, must and leather. Itís somewhat funky. A medium bodied saison. Malts are fruity and sweet. Touches of leather and must. Nicely balance. Very flavorful. No alcohol bite. Finishes very clean. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Nice saison, just funky enough and still very drinkable.

    Strong Ale '03. Yellowish straw colored with light fruity, yeasty taste. HUGE white head. Alcohol masked very nicely. I could drink a bunch of these.

    Poured a hazy gold color with no head or lace. Aroma of light fruit, funk, yeast, orange peel, bubblegum, and spice. Flavor of light fruit as well, also some herbs and alcohol as well. I thought this had THE perfect saison taste, with some light carbonation. Very enjoyable.

    This brew pours with a very cloudy golden body with very little head or lacing. The aroma is sweet, fruity (peach) and flowery with some grassy notes. The flavor is slightly sweet, spicy and flowery with woody, grassy notes and an off background. Light to medium bodied with a very slight dryness.
