OldGrowth (2484) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Pint at Tylers Apex. Good aroma, spiced. Rosemary, oregano yeasty spiced aroma. Clean Orangy gold color, ok head and lace. Sweet spice flavor. Light body, smooth mouthfeel, spiced sweet finish. Nice, quite drinkable. Not funky, on the sweet side of saisons. But good aroma and flavor like aroma tad more. Gives me a weaker saison de buff thought...

mandalarules (104) - Akron, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Draft at Bottles 101 Aroma of banana, lemon and ginger. Tastes of citrus, ginger and a peppery spicy finish. A nice drinkable beer with good complexity and balance. Interesting but not something I would visit again and again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

after4ever (5940) - Brier, Washington, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Draft at celtic bayou. Pours a crystal clear medium gold with a thin creamy white head. Sweet perfumey rosemary nose. Creamy medium body with wooly carb. Grass and rosemary and honey on the mid palate. A little too sweet.

deekyn (1039) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 1, 2013
A-murky wicker yellow with good head and mediocre lacing. S-lots of cloves and some orange up front like expected in saisons. Some vinegar, banana, mild soap and grapefruit thereafter. Cinnamon and lemon grass or hay as well. Slight egg funk. M-light bodied and very effervescent. Good carbonation and slightly sticky. T-lots of lemon and citric acid with some barnyard during tangy opening. Cloves and varied autumnal spices. A little medicinal starting in the middle all the way to a long dry and bitter end. O-simple and to the point. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Terminus (3148) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Tap at brewpub in downtown SF-June 2012-pours hazy yellow with a soapy white head. nose is big spice, GOP and allspice. hmm....flavors match exactly. clean ferment however, i just dont really get into spiced saisons that much. for what it is, its very good. a bit harsh astringency on the finish.

mcberko (5372) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2012
Sampled on tap at PIB, pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of floral notes, flowers and yeast. Flavour is dominated by some flower addition, a little soapy and lightly yeasty. Weird saison, taking over completely by whatever additive is in here. Anything but a traditional saison - decent.

pottygok (414) - Ohio, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Aroma: Honey, spices--clove and ginger--with hints of citrus, but all very faint. Appearance: Slightly cloudy, greenish-gold with rich tan head. Taste: Medium sweetness balanced by soft, tart bitterness. Palate: Medium body, thin texture, slightly lively carbonation, soft finish. Overall: Solid, quaffable beer with tart finish.

Drake (7950) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Served on draft at Beer Run as "Summer Saison." Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized creamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of ginger, clove, nutmeg, citrus and pale malts. Huge spice notes in the taste along with floral notes and pale malts. Medium bodied, lingering spice. Spice bomb... disappointing.
