OLDMANDUSTY (70) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Poured from bottle light straw color. Aroma of pear, coriander, biscuit, and light pepper and yeast funk. Tastes pear, light cereal, slight sweet orange rind, and a beautiful light pepper on the back of the palate. Amazing for the price point!

seymour (1321) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Tasted at the 1st annual Urban Chestnut - Wolpertinger festival in St. Louis, MO, USA from tap into sampler beer boot. Poured a hazy golden color with huge, moussy white foam, lasting with excellent Belgian lace. Highly aromatic: earthy, flowery, citrusy hops with spicy saison yeast esters/phenols, apparently accentuated by actual citrus zest and pepper. Well-played 4 Hands. Flavors of mild malt, biscuits, crackers, refined tangy hops flavor, layers of yeast complexity. Light body for so much flavor. Very tart, dry, bittersweet, Belgian-style "digestive" finish. Well-crafted and delicious. I want some more.

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Shared draft at the brewpub. Light wheat coloring, moderately hazy but not opaque. There’s a definite, yet mellow pear essence right up front, but this settles into a very nice, easy-to-drink beer. Very nice, full-flavored, yet light beer to drink on a hot day. (#4501, 2/25/2012)

Funked up pepper and yeast and light background fruits. Borderline gueuzey. Murky ass gold. White ring, foreboding in a good way. Very smooth fruit married to the goal product stille showcasing notable saison earthy yeast and pepper. Really fun.

Bottle shared by my buddy Blake, you rock brotha! Lots of citrus happening here, with some slight pear and floral presence as well. Really refreshing and easy to drink.

The appearance is a pure hazy yellow color with a medium white head that fades to a thin layer on top of the liquid. The aroma of this beer hits you strongly in the nose, but it is a pleasant whiff of sour fruit (specifically pear), and the taste is mildly sour and slightly sweet, which grows on your tongue, with the former (unfortunately) overpowering the latter. The palate, however, is a very pleasant combination of an average carbonation, medium body, slick texture, and a slightly sour finish.

DConMan (114) - Ballwin, Missouri, USA - APR 13, 2012
Enjoyed on-tap @ 4 Hands Brewing Company in St. Louis, MO for $6. Tapped from the Wooden Tap Handle into a 12oz Tulip Glass. Aroma- A malty, upfront aroma starts this one out. Light oranges and coriander. Hits the nose with minimal spices but more malt and citrus and fruit characters. Appearance- Received with a 1 finger, frothy head that has very average retention. Has a dark, golden body that is completely full of haze. Leaves a few suds behind. Flavor- Citrus, malt, and mild coriander comes out in this Saison. Effervescent and finishes semi-dry. Mouthfeel- Light Bodied, High Carbonation, Effervescent, and has a nice sour/funk note. Overall Impression- While 4 Hands will be a new spot to hang out and enjoy new beers, this one will be on my radar! A great example of the style and highly recommend if available on-tap here. I hope they think about bottling this guy!

pours a clean golden yellow. light white thin fizzy head. light retention light pear combined with a fresh funk. hint of citrus hops. similar to nose, a well balanced pear to funk ratio. nothing over done here, just balance. white pepper and orange zest are very hidden. maybe a hint of burn in the finish. mild to moderate carbonation, clean but dry finish this was really good, better than prunus. i would and plan on drinking more of this.

sample at brewery this was my favorite beer of the day of the 4 I tried Pours a slightly hazy brass amber with a clingy-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet toasty pale malt and some grassy bittering hops with some tart light fruity character. Starts with an effervescent carbonation and lightly sweet toasty pale malts with some strawberry and guava tartness before a smooth, bittersweet grassy finish. A pretty unique and drinkable saison
