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 (1963) - 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 (5105) - 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 (2573) - 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
On tap at C’est What? (Toronto, ON). Pours a light honey color with thin white bubbly head. 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.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 18, 2009
Bottle: Hazy golden with a dense off white head. The aroma is estery, grainy with a touch of crackery malt. Perhaps a coriander note. Simple aroma. Fluffy body with a dry flavor. Mild crackery grains and a touch of honey. There’s a mild coriander like note and later noble hop presence, yet it’s restrained. Not bad, not good either. One dimensional.

puzzl (3254) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 13, 2009
Kind of sweaty, lightly oxidized aroma, a touch of black pepper and cheese. Light foamy cap. Thinnish flavor, poor malt definition, light hops. Weak backbone.

bhensonb (11528) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 10, 2009
Bottle from matt7215. Thanks again. Pours a pale orange gold with a foamy white head. It laces lightly. Aromas of spice and citrus zest. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is yeasty, earthy, lightly malty, and there are hot spice bits. Finish is more orange peel than anything specific, but the hot bits definitely persist. Gets a mite earthier.
