yobdoog (1888) - Woodridge NY, New York, USA - DEC 9, 2009
Orange color with a thin head. Aroma is sweet with some spice and fruit, citrus, oranges and tangerines. Flavor is sweet and fruity, light spice. More of a fruit beer than a saison for me. A bit of a heavy body too.

TheJester (1728) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2009
341 mL bottle from the brewery. Hazy orange-gold with lots of minute sediment and a small off-white head. A little on the sweet side of the typical saison aroma, with a touch of honey added to the spice and funk. Pretty much the same can be said of the flavour, although the initial sweetness turns bitter about half way through. Medium body, medium to high carbonation. Refreshing.

kramer (4690) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold body with a small tight bubbled white head that retained as a thin wispy covering. The nose is typical "American" Saison, too much citrus peel and floral spices with not enough yeast influence or much of a hint of farmhouse funkiness. Heavy perfumy, herbal, and floral flavor that dominates the Saison base. Coriander and orange peel overload! Where’s the farmhouse character? A little too heavily bodied for the style as well with too much clinginess. Moderate fizzy prickly carbonation. OK to drink I guess, but the perfumy spices got to be a bit too much. Not exactly a classic interpretation of the style.

Spab (2139) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2009
On tap at Volo. Pours a slightly hazy gold with good sized white head. Citrus, grains, and slight spice in the aroma. Citrus seems a little more pronounced in the flavour though still moderate with grains and spice also present. Decent refreshing beer.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2009

Aroma is sweet and floral with notes of spice, brett, flowers, clove, honey, yeast, wheat, banana, some caramel. Flavor is sweet and floral with notes of brett, spice, honey, wheat, yeast, some light funk. Generally light to medium body with a pleasing sweet finish.
