UPDATED: JUN 9, 2016 Not a ton on the nose...some farm and hops but not much. Almost a bit soapy...some hops and wheatiness and a bit chewy but refreshing. Good overall but not a favorite.

Pounder can. Slightly hazy golden in glass with a tight bright white head. Thinner lines of lacing left behind. Nose of yeast funk. Yum. Upfront yeasty lemon. Body comes later... near finish, for a quick peak before succumbing to gravity and my gullet. Rounded yeast and spice tone for finish. Last of the MD haul...

jefcon (1604) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 4, 2016
A likable, tart, refreshing beer. Good tall white head and a great effervescent amount of carbonation. Lemon, peach, apple and grape. Nice bitterness and a quenching finish.

Can to tulip. Cloudy straw yellow. Lemony wheat nose. Palate is sweet yummy citrus barnyard. Great summer celebration beer. Right on!

OldMrCrow (2339) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2016
Cans at some bar in Dupont Circle, albeit poured into a 3 stars snifter. Gotta earn that $8.50 somehow.

Hazy gold pour, nice white head. Massive citra nose, plenty of lemon. This is a hop-dominated beer rather than a traditional saison, but it works. Itís got to be the best DC beer Iíve ever had, and I was good for two on a night when I thought all I wanted to do on 5 hoursí sleep was go back to the hotel and crawl into bed. This snobby, perhaps, but intended as praise: Iíd happily drink it at a beer bar in Seattle.

slowrunner77 (9398) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 12, 2016
Nice orange and lemon aroma. Flavor starts off rustic citrus but finished very grainy/malty, especially for the style. 9 day old can. Nice enough and unique, but misses the style by a wideish margin.

ilovedarkbeer (2698) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 1, 2016
Pours a hazy golden color with foamy white head. Notes of lemons, fresh air, orange citrus, and honey. Nice

JDBaker11058 (1790) - Maryland, USA - MAR 16, 2016
appearance: cloudy gold, foamy white head, minimal lacing. aroma: lots of bright citrus (lemon of course, but maybe some tangerine?), slight crackery malts, a bit of pepper, maybe green apple. taste: crackery, with pepper, grass, lemon zest, maybe a bit of pineapple and clove. finish: a bit of belgian yeasty spice comes out here, along with lingering citrus notes that dry things out. notes: Not a bad saison at all, but it didnít really stand out. Reminded me a bit of Brooklynís Sorachi Ace, but not as good.

Aroma: lemon, bread, citrus, Appearance: hazy golden, white head Taste: light sweetness, lightly bitter, Palate: light body, slick feel, soft carbonation, abrupt finish Tasty

shigadeyo (3608) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2015
11/07/2015: 3 Stars Citra & Lemon Peel Saison... Thoroughly dull and grossly over-priced; cloudy golden-bronze color, malty, but not much Belgian spiciness or citrus at all; average at best and definitely not worth $8/snifter. Draught at Founding Farmers in Washington DC.
