Draft in a plastic cup at BBC. Soapy herbal tones. Medium bodied, toasty malt tones. Not perfect, but true to style. Medicinal, lemon grass action. Drinkable, medium bodied, not mindblowing, but fresh and clean.

It poured a hazy yellow color with an average white head. The aroma was yeasty citrus and spice. It had a medium body with soft carbonation and a sticky texture. The taste was sweet with a nice finish of moderate duration.

12oz bottle into a tulip. Pours a hazy dark orange with some yeast particles. Humongous white head that takes forever to die down. Tons of carbonation in this. Smell is quite fruity with lemon and orange. Maybe a tiny bit of funk but it is barely detectable. Flavor is very citric and spicy with orange, lemon, coriander and clove, a very tiny bit of tartness. A moderate amount of sweetness before a chalky dryness swoops in and cleans everything up. Finish pretty crisp with some residual sweetness. Overall, an ok saison but nowhere near its Belgian counterparts. Nice to see a US brewery try the style, though, and it is a decent attempt.

On tap pours opaque brownish orange in color. Taste and aroma of dried fruits and spices. Ends with a bit of citrus flavor. Kind of tangy

Pours a fairly dark brown with a modest head. Sweet smell and floral smell. Slightly sweet and roasted flavor profile, with a somewhat soapy finish to it.

tmongoose (1303) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 11, 2012
On draft pours pretty much orange color with no head, aroma is of bananas and candy. Lots of carbonation though. Flavor is about the same. Banana and candy and some esters. Body is thin.

Patrickctenchi (3674) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Bottle 6-11...pours a hazy orange, fizzy, very little head. Scent is candied orange, Flavour is acidic citrus,tart to the point of sour, maybe a little pear...hard to tell with the overly candied stickiness. A little pepper shows up, Overall, not good, just some wierd combination of sugary, tangy and...well...Bleh.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Pours dark gold with a thin white head. Notes of banana, sweet sugary esters, bubble gum, light phenolic spice, vloe, wheat, lightly chewy pale amlt. Medium bodied with moderate cabonation. Poor head retention for the style. Overall a decent beer, pretty much on par for a US saison though.

Medium amber with a good head and no lace. Pretty heavy for a saison, and unfortunately, has an unattractive spice-gumdrop flavor that takes over at the finish. Kudos for originality, but not for me.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Bottle opens with some foam instantly creeping up the neck of the bottle and spilling out until I get my glass underneath. Pours hazed amber orange with a big frothy, rocky, craggy beige head that eventually settles after a while. Aroma of bread, some funk, floral hop, basil. Taste is lacking, mostly funky sweet with a bitter chalky finish that just seems to linger on forever. Body is medium thin with high carbonation.
