TheAlum (6373) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Draft on tap at the brewery (St. Louis, MO). RBSG 2014 Friday Bus Tour. Pours a pale straw yellow hue, touches of lemon, frothy whitish ring laces ok. Dies down, mellow ring. Aromas are a touch fruity, gentle pear and spuce. Touches of straw, mellow pepper and spicy yeast. Initial is a bit dry and spicy, mellow fruity ester, straw and pear. Touchges of bread, mellow citrus and earth. Middle shows a bit more pear quickly leading into grainy malts, bread dough, touches of straw and Siason yeast spice. Mellow tart pear, faint white grape. Backend is dry, a bit yeasty and spicy. Some earthiness, spice and mellow estery trails. Solid, interesting, not sweet but well integrated. The pepper strikes a bit on that backend and finish and keeps it interesting.

DrSilverworm (8647) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2014 Taster on tap at iTAP-CWE in STL during RBSG. Clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves decent bits of lace. Interesting fruity aroma. Pear, white pepper, definitely get that. Peppery taste, moderate sweet. Solid, interesting stuff to try. 7/3/7/3/12

Repeat rate on tap at the brewery during RBSG: Clear golden color. Thin white head. Decent loose bits of lace. Lighter body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Grassy, zesty spicy aroma. Some belgian yeast. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Decent farmhouse, for me. 6/3/6/4/13 [original scores kept - had a fresher palate during the 1st rate]

EyeAmBaldman (391) - Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Aroma is kind of thin, maybe a bit of pears. Taste is peppery with a sweetness of pears. Has a hint of a Belgian yeast flavor, which is interesting. The back end is bland. Its nothing special.

kansascityCW (109) - kansas city, Missouri, USA - APR 23, 2014
Pours a beautiful bright orange with a smaller head than I would expect based on other saisons Ive had. Light pear juice aroma, definitely some orange. Some ripe banana. Taste has that Belgian yeast quality to it along with some citrus. Not as peppery as I thought it would be. Overall this is an excellent saison.
