Boutip (5898) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2016
Bottle: Poured a dirty amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of grapefruit notes with light rustic cereal notes is quiet nice. Taste is dominated by more grapefruit notes then I was expecting with some rustic cereal notes and light herbal notes. Peppercorn were not that identifiable. Body was full with good carbonation. Super enjoyable saison with nice refreshing notes of grapefruit.

BierMeHoos (576) - Maryland, USA - SEP 14, 2016
Where: The Partisan, Washington DC. How: 20 ounce draft pour. Appearance: very pale hay color with a nice white head and tons of lacing; hazy. Aroma: pithy from the grapefruit, Brett barnyard funk, citrus, lemon, oranges, tropical, kinda dirty. Taste: highly carbonated, grapefruit, Brett funk, citrus, spicy middle of the mouth, bitter and tannic finish. Palate: Mouth feel is medium, carbonation is also medium. Crisp and refreshing. Overall: An excellent funky saison that will bring a smile to your face.

Itís been WAY to long since I had the other version to compare head to head, but they will end up with the same score whatever thatís worth. Still funky grapefruit forward, a little gassy but not overly so, peppery dry funky fruity finish. Quality brew.

Pours a murky yellow-golden with a sticky white head. Sour nose. Sour tart candy, passion fruit and grapefruit aromas. Medium to full expression on the palate. The sourness is more subdued in the flavor than on the nose. Sour tart candy. Grapefruit bitterness.

kathouse (1626) - Nevada, USA - JUL 31, 2016
I really have tried to put a positive spin on this beer, but the combination of grapefruit, peppers, and saison yeast are really not my thing.

robinvboyer (4138) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2016
750ml bottle. Hazy yellow pour, with a huge white head. Subtle funk, some nice earthy barrel, with alot of citrus fruit, citrus zest and some peppery/herbal notes. Great carb, effervescent mouth feel. Great grapefruit pithy bitterness, some tropical fruit and slight tarty funk in the end with some woody barrel. Complex, refreshing, extremely drinkable. Wicked hot patio beer.

Bomber thanks to AndyReynolds - spicy grassy pumpkin seed in the nose. Get something fruity in here like lemon zest. Apparently itís grapefruit peel.
