JStax (5468) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2016
Can poured into a tumbler. The beer is a hazy gold with a white head of foam that fizzes out quickly. The aroma is bubble gum, sugary bread, mildly floral. Sweet for a saison. High carbonation, medium body.

tfontana (721) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 26, 2016
Can pour into nonic pint glass from Julio’s Liquors. Appearance is cloudy yellow with greenish tinge, soda-like effervescence, massive 3-finger width fizzy white head with fair retention and no lacing. Aroma is wheat, citrus, cinnamon and sugar. Taste is as aroma. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, lively carbonation and sweet finish. Overall, a nice sweet treat without a ton of complexity.

jgb9348 (5720) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2016
Clear golden and peach coloured body with a largeish four centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of wheat, coriander seed, curacao, grass, hay, earth and some lighter hops. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and floral flavours with some apples, pears, honey sweetness coupled with a large breadie and yeast flavour with malt and a bit of noticeable hops near the very end. Aftertaste shows some sweetness from the lighter fruit with definite grassy and herbal notes throughout coupled with a lot of pungent spices of coriander seed and curacao showing at the end. Overall, a decent beer that shows some character and funk that is almost more of a belgian wit than a saison, but hitting about the right notes for summertime. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Ted’s Package Store in Charlton, Massachusetts on 28-July-2016 for US$2,03 sampled at home in Washington on 28-August-2016.

malrubius (2609) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 5, 2016
Can from Table and Vine. Golden with haze and white haze that fizzes off. Nice floral peppery honey vanilla grassy aroma. On the sweet side with honey vanilla banana peach and mild peppery zesty finish. Chamomile and orange peel are very subtle. Soft mouthfeel a little light on the carbo. Very tasty. Wish I had chilled it better. I like these pretty cold. Very good/excellent.

Quick3Beers (981) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 23, 2016
Pours a slightly hazy yellow from a can. Slightly spicy lemon, nice tart sourness. Not picking up on the heavy spice or plum notes others reported, I wonder if batches change quite a bit. Good beer.

shigadeyo (3635) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 11, 2015
Bready, doughy, citrusy middle, with a peppery finish; really nice overall, great beer.

alobar (3560) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2015
Pours cloudy golden orange color with a white soapy head. Aroma of yeast, bread, and some citrus. Clove, pepper, and bread flavor with some citrus. Decent beer.

ClarkVV (5858) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 9, 2015
Can at Depot 6, 7/6/15
Would believe this was a soda water with a splash of prune juice based on the appearance. Light haziness and a white head that immediately fizzles away to nothing.
Lightly sweet sugars and a touch of alcohol in the nose with odd fruitiness and light plum skin astringency. Not very beer-like and I’m not sure I could identify this as a beer blind. No diacetyl or any other flaws, per se, but there’s something a little unsettling. As it turns out, this is the spices, but based on the can, it doesent divulge this is brewed with spices.
Flavor is almost exactly a prune juice and soda, though with a touch more sweetness of table sugar, light creamed corn and a tea-like herbal note on the finish. Fizzy carbonation, extremely loose and watery texture, not Belgian in any way and certainly not a saison (in fact, it is brewed with American ale yeast). Had not heard anything good about this brewery but I wanted to see for myself. Sorry I did.

I got this for someone else but they passed it on to me, not really my style, light color, don't notice any nose, sweet, almost like a farmhouse bread, nothing really wrong with it, just not my style ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
