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.

superspak (4400) - 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.

DiarmaidBHK (4085) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Bottle from Sun devil Liquors. Pours yellow with inches of white foam that dissipates quickly. Very effervescent in the tongue. Has a bit of funk in the nose. Some subdued barnyard of the tongue. Solid but not amazing.

Not the best saison. Stale and lacking the tartness of the best of them. Hops are understated, as is the alcohol content.

thegreenrooster (3893) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Pour is a cloudy blond with a huge white head. Aroma is hoppy, yeast phenols with and odd soapyness. Flavor is yeasty a minor hop and grainy. Not enough of the Belgain estery, spicy peppery thing going on but it was kinda headed in the right direction.

12oz bottle poured into a Christoffel thin tulip glass. Pretty fresh beer, just got to town. Pours is nice with vigorous carbonation visible in the golden beer that creates a medium thick head with very long retention. Generally speaking this is a banana ester rich beer, not as strong as Chimay but still strong. However, it is well attenuated, not sweet. Yeasty dough around with some herb and spice off the yeast as well. I like it b/c I am a fan of banana esters but I understand why this beer is scoring lower. In general, for this brewer its a very nice accomplishment. Usually Belgians come off too estery or too sweet but this isn’t. For the price of a six pack its a very good deal.
