jake65 (3373) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle: Pours a flat golden color with two fingers of fluffy white head. Light farmhouse style aroma; dry and dusty, yeast, light florals, and citrus. Flavor is maltier than expected and it compliments a grainy presence. Sweet, but not cloying. The yeast and florals remain too. The last lingering flavor is of bananas… not a bad way to finish. Sessionable.

On tap at winter brew fest. Cloudy golden pour with a fizzy white top. Scent is fruity and yeasty. Taste is same and crisp.

It pours a nice clear golden color with a fluffy white head. The aroma jumps out as fresh 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.

TAR (2657) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, 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.

rougeau13 (2544) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 3, 2013
Clear golden; white head. Aroma just like that of the saison I home brewed last fall. Decent, but doesn’t stand out. Taste is thin and weak and a touch off. Body is light-medium and slick. In all categories besides aroma, even my super-first attempt-amateur saison was far superior. This is perfectly acceptable as a session type beer, but it’s poor amongst saisons.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - APR 23, 2013
12oz bottle. Hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of zesty spice, herbs, lemon and cereal grains. Flavor is toasty malt, spicy yeast esters, light bitter and no alcohol taste. Medium to light body with average carbonation. Nice easy drinking mild saison.

legion242 (2344) - Richardson, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Poured a medium yellow with a touch of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Medium head and a lacking palate- lacks the spiciness that I think the style should have, but I will probably buy again as it is not all that bad.

portableparty (2279) - 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!

poisoneddwarf (2269) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - MAR 22, 2013
12 oz bottle from a six pack bought at Super 1 in Rathdrum, ID. Pours hazy golden with a collapsing white head. Aroma is pretty bland for a saison. I smell grain, faint banana, faint pepper, faint lemon; almost as boring-smelling as an American golden/blonde ale. Taste is pretty hoppy bitter for your average saison...who are we kidding here? This doesn’t taste anything like any saison I’ve ever had. It tastes more like an American pale ale with faint--and when I say faint, I mean extremely faint--Belgian characteristics. Finishes with a light tang. Mouthfeel is foamy, texture watery, body medium to thin. Average pale ale; substandard saison.
