foyle (254) - Wyoming, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance: 2" fluffy white head recedes slowly with moderate lacing. Significant carbonation present. Deep golden color and somewhat cloudy, but less than is common with saisons. Aroma: clove, banana, warm bread dough, earthy hops. Mouthfeel: mostly light, fairly crisp, somewhat dry finish. Flavor: Hops are more forward than expected and mask the sweeter malt flavors (clove, banana, caramel) somewhat. Overall: very fine, but not great.

seymour (1478) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Tasted from a 12oz brown bottle into a schooner glass. It poured a light hazy golden amber colour with deep, deep everlasting white foam and loads of Belgian lace. Some true to style Saison and/or Belgian Singel traits, though weaker and less complex overall than classic examples. Slightly grainy, spicy, fruity, citrusy, earthy, tart, yeasty, with some honey graham cracker notes, with a very dry finish. Nice noble hops aromas, but the flavour/bitterness was a bit harsh. A little mushy and bland comparatively, but still vastly better than most mass-produced lagers and golden ales. I would gladly drink this again and again, especially as an old-timey summer refresher. Good, not great.

Fredis23 (515) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Clear Yellow Color, with Huge Long Lasting Foamy Head that Leaves Lots Of Lacing. Citrus, Wheat sour, yeast, light bitter finish. Light Body. Just OK for me.

Bif (1563) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Pours a hazy copper color with a thick head that fades very slowly to plenty of lacing. Aroma of citrus, fruit, spice and what seems to be banana. Taste of citrus, fruit some banana, spices and some bread. Mild bitterness blended with tart. Fairly dry finish. Medium body with ample carbonation. Decent beer for the style.

rumproasts (3232) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 24, 2013
bottle. golden with small head. light bodied saison. mild flavor, some lemon/citrus, pepper and slight breadiness. it’s not going to knock anyone’s socks off, but the price is right.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
portableparty (1961) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 21, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy pale golden amber color with a large foamy white head that settles to a thin film and lacing. Aroma has bread, biscuit some farmhouse and lemon zest and yeast. Taste has a bitter salty lemon flavor with some bread and biscuit some yeast a little pepper and and hidden funk. Palate is thin fizzy and finishes dry. Nice light Saison without the booze that some American Saisons have. 8 bucks a 6 pack is nice too!

Pershing (477) - Garland, Texas, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Pours hazy gold with a huge white head that lingers around for a while. Bread and citrus aroma with some spice. Not much carbonation. Feels flat on the palate with some light hop bitterness. Finishes clean.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a white head that leaves some nice lacing. Nice carbonation too. Aroma is lemon, spice, a little funk. Taste is somewhat bitter with peppery and floral notes. Maybe a touch too bitter, but clean drinking and crisp. A nice change from many of the fuller bodied saisons I’ve had lately.

EvilPuppet99 (37) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Pretty darn good, just a bit of a lingering after taste though. Very finishable for me.
