Finally found a bottle of this in the singles cooler at a local store - cloudy golden pour - head is initially fizzy, but it froths up nicely eventually and the retention is impressive - nose of earthy, lightly husky malts, dusty yeast, pepper, floral notes, mild banana esters - light to medium body, with moderate carbonation - lightly tart up front, but dries out quickly - light mineral/limestone - spicy/pepper phenols, especially in the bone dry finish - very mild plastic phenols, but not of the off-putting sort - mild banana esters late (I don’t taste them nearly as much as others) - this is quite nice - I really dig how crisp and dry it is - the nose has a couple off notes, but otherwise this is a solid attempt - I must track down a full six pack.

heemer77 (5152) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle. The body is bright almost deep gold copper with a thick dense white head. The nose has plenty of funk and fruity sweetness like apples. There is also that smell of old library books, pleasingly sweet, not dusty. The taste is relatively funky at first, finishing with ashy wood notes. There is also some hay and a little bit of apple core. I got a slightly soapy hint in the finish. Decent effort.

onceblind (5147) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Clear pale gold with a rocky white head...like a lager. Smells like bread crust and pilsner malts...like a lager (not giving enough credit here, though bread crust and pilsner doughiness are prevalent here. There’s also a bit of earthy floral tones and a touch of orange zest. And the head actually leaves good lacing and retains well). Flavor is packed with hay and orange rind citrus, a bit of floral hops, and a bit of doughiness. Finishes estery and clean with a touch of pilsner malt and orange sweetness.

My wife loved this, but for me, aside from the quite nice and slightly funky aroma, I was simply whelmed. It’s quite sweet in the finishing notes and fairly dominated by orange throughout. Also some dryness in there that works pretty well. Not bad or great but good. Probably good enough.

wlajwl (4305) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Aroma is spices and citrus, almost close to overboard. The flavor is citrus, light bananas, malts and tart/almost sourish finish.

travita (4304) - Frisco, Texas, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle. The look is clear, golden in color, and and a good white head. The smell is yeasty, noble hops, florals, and decent. The taste is crisp, yeast, dry, grain, and ok.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy pale gold with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, yeast, and spice. Taste is lemon, yeast, spice, and grass. Average Saison.

joeneugs (3805) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 29, 2013
12 oz. bottle purchased at Berkeley Bowl. It pours a nice clear golden color with a fluffy white head. The aroma jumps out as fresh multigrain bread with some orange and spices. Really digging this grainy/malty aroma. The flavor is similar with lots of wheat and rye with a good subdued spicy, peppery finish. I would’ve liked it a tad drier with a lighter crisper body, but this is a pretty decent drinkable Saison not being heavy or sweet. Nice.
