jgb9348 (5553) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 24, 2016
Super hazy golden and peach coloured body with a large, eight centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of alcohol, hay, grass, funk, lemons, tea, powder and wheat. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong grassy and herbal flavour with a bit of lemons, some yeast and funk, but a ton of lemon and tea flavours throughout showing some rather earthy and perfumey flavours instead of typical saison notes. Aftertaste shows a nice wheatie and heavily spiced beer with grass and flowers throughout. Overall, a decent beer thats more of a herb/spice beer than a saison, but still interesting and against the grain of typicality. I sampled this sixteen ounce can purchased from Whole Foods in Pentagon City, at the end of my driveway on 28-June-2016 for US$1,99 sampled at home in Upstate New York (New Paltz) on 23-July-2016.

Can shared by Cuso. Grassy, citrusy, barnyardy. The hops nicely mellows the sometimes sharp saisony spicy edge. Juicy, fresh feeling, refreshing, easy drinking. Very good.

falco242 (373) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2016
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.

coldbrewky (1670) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JUN 5, 2016
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 (1612) - 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 (2360) - 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. It’s got to be the best DC beer I’ve ever had, and I was good for two on a night when I thought all I wanted to do on 5 hours’ sleep was go back to the hotel and crawl into bed. This snobby, perhaps, but intended as praise: I’d happily drink it at a beer bar in Seattle.

slowrunner77 (9609) - 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.
