Gerbeer (1935) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 9, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2014 On tap. Pours a slightly hazy gold with moderate head. Aromas of funk, and light citrus with floral notes. Flavors of lemon wax, resin, dried banana, white pepper and wheat. Nice, very "Blaugies" but somewhat flat and acidic.

kramer (5061) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle. Opens with a rather loud pop, pours a fairly clear straw yellow body under a large frothy white head that lasted forever. The nose is quite delicious and delicate with some beautiful light hoppiness that reminds me of fresh flowers. Great light delicate bready and doughy maltiness, some really nice yeastiness in here as well. The flavor has the perfect balance between the malt, yeast, and hop profiles. Very delicate and complex. Hard to tell what I like best about this, it all adds up to exactly what I want from a Saison. Dry throughout with a soft mouthfeel after some of the carbonation dies down. Lingering light bitterness. Excellent beer.

Saison med amarillo! En hipsterdröm! Doft av banan & bönder & övriga kryddor. Amarillo smak, trevligt vetebanan & extrem bretta! Mumma! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Corked and caged bottle split 4 ways. Hazy golden pour with loads of sediment. Nose has soap, esters, some mango and citrus. Taste has yeast, sweet lemon juice, some mango and some herbal notes. Nice classical saison!

Nice hazy gold, farmy nose but balanced. Really nice taste, hay and bread and funk with a bit of hops on the finish. Really solid.

theisti (3270) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - OCT 21, 2014
~12 oz tulip draft at The Foundry in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is a hazy orange yellow with a well formed one inch white head. The aroma is fresh natural Saison yeast, herbal grass, soft orange pine hop, and general earthiness. Very engaging nose. The taste is a beautiful balance of the earth grain grass and the herbal orange pin hop, the yeast is present, mostly in the finish. The complexity and melding of the flavors is exquisite, this is delicious. The palate is medium bodied, gentle soft carbonation, yeast, crisp finish. Really nice beer.
