hayduke (3370) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured golden with a big foamy white head. Nose is very complex with citrus, apples, cloves, some banana, wheat, spices, and damp hay. Medium, in body. Clean mouthfeel. Flavor is complex as well with banana, cloves. and lots of barnyard,. Belgian yeast leads to a fruity finish. Quite nice.

JPDurden24 (1579) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Straw colored, white head. It seems to be missing something, don’t think this bottle is anywhere near new. Some minor herbs and grass, but far from a saison.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Straw in color, large frothy white head, nice lacing.   Bright herbal and grassy nose.   Mealy and grassy on the tongue.   Not as floral or bright as I had hoped.   Has a slight herbal aspect, along with general bright straw/hay and grassiness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Mealy wheaty finish, a touch dry, and thats about it.   Nothing really floral or bright to be seen.   Very slight metallic notes on the finish.   Not terrible, but not at all what I would have thought of as a Saison.

superspak (2605) - Michigan, USA - AUG 6, 2013
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 7/12/2013. Pours hazy bright golden amber color with a 2-3 finger fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, clove, pepper, grass, banana, bread, wheat, floral, herbal, light bubblegum, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of yeast ester notes with light malt balance; and good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, clove, banana, pepper, wheat, bread, pepper, grass, floral, light bubblegum, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, clove, pepper, bread, wheat, floral, grass, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast ester flavors with a light bready malt balance; and zero cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very crisp, prickly, and smooth mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with no warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice saison! All around nice balance and complexity of yeast ester flavors; and smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

TAR (2495) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Blonde rust. Gentle pour raises a voluminous cap of lathery white froth. Brightly estery and intensely peppery nose, with fresh flowers, white pepper phenolics, pineapple upside-down cake, and puttylike yeast. Hint of gum, sulfur, clove, and banana bread. Soft, fine carbonation. Quite snappy from the start, with a firm and dry maltiness charged with a moderately phenolic, white pepper vivacity. Splash of peach puree gels with a subdued tartness and wheatlike twang to gently temper the phenols and deepen the predominantly stiff texture with a pleasant succulence. Malt comes off as a mixed bag as its coarse graininess sporadically hints at burnt breadcrust, but at the same time showcases some softer candied pecan, baguette, and toasted hay qualities. Saccharine-like sweetness makes a very subtle appearance and robs some of the soulful rusticity. Relatively clean, otherwise. Herbal, aniseedy hop briskness balances the ongoing assortment of slippery fruity esters. Finishes quite woody and earthy, with plenty of candied pecan edges to match the grassy and herbaceous hop punch. A very respectable yeast-driven rendition which tips its hat to the traditional saisons of the world. Fairly rustic in character, well-attenuated, textbook appearance, fluffy mouthfeel, and very quaffable thanks to the exemplary balance. Not exactly great, but considering the brewery this is shockingly serviceable.

ericdevin (770) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a slightly cloudy straw-orange. Lots of off-white head. Aroma malt-forward, but with some yeasty ester notes as well. Body lively on tongue, finish very abrupt, maybe some hints of grass or spice? Not bad, just a little slight.

Cloudy golden yellow pour with a frothy white head. Aroma is spices, light fruit, lemon, and yeast. Taste is slight lemon, yeast, some spices. Tasty beer. Great lacing. A good beer for a 100 degree day.
