Tap at Lazy Dog. A transparent amber with a ring of cream colored head. Taste of malt and butter. Don’t know what went wrong here.

DiarmaidBHK (3347) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle from wish you were beer. Pours golden with a thin white head. Has a little bit of lacing. Not much on the nose. Thin on the tongue. Not a lot of hop flavor or peppery notes. Not good at all.

chinchill (1602) - South Carolina, USA - APR 22, 2014
12 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter. Bottled on date of 29 Oct. 2013. Pour is hazy apricot with a small head that soon reduces to a couple of thin islands. O: a session ale and drinks like one in the poor sense that it has little substance. Too bad, because this is distinctive and would be interesting if the flavor and aroma were ramped up a bit.

jbruner (2135) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 16, 2014
Bottle sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours a clear yellow with minimal bubbly head. Aroma is nowhere near a saison, kind of like a session pale. Taste follows, high on the hops but still very weak. Meh.

Malaclemys (360) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Pours hazy gold with white head. Aroma of spice, clove, and wheat. Taste is clove, sour, and a little hay. Light body with a balanced finish.

GTAEgeek (1142) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 27, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours clear straw color, with a medium, white head and some thick lacing. The aroma is hay, apples, some light floral notes, and honey. Sweet and grainy, with a light hop bitterness that comes forward in the finish. Light to medium body, sticky, and grainy. Overall, this is a lightly hopped, fairly tasty beer. Not complex or unique, but well made and very sessionable (as well it should be, given the name).

Itzjerm (1140) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Very disapointed in this even if it is a session ale. Very very little flavor or aroma. its like a bud with a slight higher hop profile. I wont be picking this up again. Maybe good for someone who doesnt want to feel their beer or taste it either.

raradel (334) - Atlanti Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2013
On tap in Montgomery, AL. Light crisp easy drinker that would be awesome at a college football game. Good for what it is.

b79turner (221) - Alabama, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Bottle poured into tulip glass. Yellow color with a large white head. This is a great beer! Very drinkable, really an all day session ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nero55 (631) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2014 Bottle. Pale golden with small white head. Aroma of Belgian spices. Light body with spice and light straw notes and a bitter hop finish.--Tap. Get more fruit on the aroma and more tartness than the first time. Not bad.
