Guerde (1175) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 26, 2013
(bottle) Drank during one of the nicer days of the year so far, so felt the style was appropriate for the weather. Pours out a clear gold color with a large, fluffy white head and solid levels of lacing. Yeast pour introduces plenty of haziness. Aroma holds some pizza crust, oregano, coriander, light banana, and faint soap bar. The flavor holds substantial cracker and bread notes, especially shining through on the finish, with further flavors of faint banana, mild but herbal hops in the mid, and a lingering finish of grain holding well on after drinking. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is a bit subdued for the style. Overall a decent saison that would be great for the upcoming summer weather.

EtTuCthulhu (1077) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 29, 2013
This beer is a hazy golden color with a large white head that seems to fade at a mild pace, and the aroma combines hints of sour fruit, yeast, and rye. The taste is quite sour, slightly bitter, and a touch sweet, which doesn’t give me the balance and flavor combinations I expect when I see a "saison." Furthermore, the palate combines a medium body, soft carbonation, slick texture, and a sour finish.

Oscbert (1041) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 18, 2013
~Pils malt aroma, bready with lemon and peppery spice. Refreshing. ~Pours a hazy light gold color with big foamy lasting white head. ~Bitter lemon peel in flavor with lots of spice and earthy hops. Kinda a strange spice flavor combo in there. ~Medium light bodied with high CO2, frothy mouthfeel, lingering strange spice finish. ~Its a drinkable beer, but the strange spicy flavor is a turn off for me. Luckily got this on sale for $3.99 a six pack!

Brouwerij (930) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a finger of quickly settling white head. Some thin lacing. Aroma is mildly funky, musty, wheaty, with a hint of manure. Flavor is similar to aroma, funky, mild ctirus, with a bitter aftertaste that lingers. Very mild and disappointing throughout. Moderate carbonation, light body, and watery texture. A lacking saison.

nealblind (874) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - APR 21, 2013
Bright Orange-yellow only slightly cloudy. It looks filtered. Quick dissipating white head some legs. Aroma of Belgian yeast, co2, and alcohol comes across like markers. Taste is good though with bubblegum and banana. Slight funk going on as well. Watery mouthfeel. Would be great on a hot day in lieu of budweiser.

Thisis12ptfont (857) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Faint caramalized sugar, belgian yeast and coriander aroma.Yellowish gold with a fine foam rim. Immensly crisp and hoppy flavor upfront with a full bodied malt giving off dough, caramel, herbs and maple syrup. Finish is a strongly carbonated continuous hop flavor. Overall, this is actually really good. Pleasantly light yet, full flavored. I’d give this an A- rating.

ericdevin (827) - 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.

Gold, hazy. off-white head. Grainy-sweet malt with some cornlike notes, a little hay, some light herbal and earthy notes. Finishes grainy and relatively dry, with some lingering herbal notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jeremyh70 (742) - Missouri, USA - MAY 28, 2013
A golden orange color with a big rocky off white head with nice retention and good lacing. I get lemon and orange zest aroma with a little funk and grain on the nose. Taste light fruit, orange and banana, with quite a bit of toasted grain and a bit of pepperiness. Has a saltine cracker flavor mid palate and finishes semi dry with a slight bitterness and more grain. Soft mouthfeel with a light/medium body and medium carbonation. A little clean and a bit off for the style. Could use some more funk and less grain, but not a bad tasting beer.

ttoadee (668) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 26, 2013
Cloudy gold, limited white head. Yeasty nose, slightly bitter. Not quite ripe melon & pepper in the middle, a little flat. Finish is dry...missing something.
