WolfsBlood84 (172) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - NOV 22, 2011
12oz bottle, bottled June ’11. Highly carbonated pour, gusher - could be infection. Pours a golden yellowish with small white head. Smells sweet and somewhat citrusy. Taste is complex, but muddy and maybe under attenuated - has a lot going on - yeasty, bready, sweet, citrusy, orange, etc. With a bit of carbonation/infection control - there could be a nice beer hiding in here.

bluejacket74 (1324) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2011
12 ounce bottle, bottled in August 2011. Served in a tulip glass, the beer pours a mostly clear dark gold color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention is decent, and there’s a decent amount of lacing left behind on the glass. The brew smells like light fruit (pears, peaches), Belgian yeast and wheat, but there’s also a weird off-aroma that I can’t identify but I know it doesn’t smell good at all. Luckily there isn’t anything off about the taste. It tastes like peppery spice, Belgian yeast, pears and a bit of bready malt. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, and it’s well carbonated. It’s certainly not one of the better saisons (or BBC beers in general) I’ve tried and I wouldn’t buy a sixer of this, but for $1.69 a bottle it’s worth a try.

deyholla (6644) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Bottle thanks to Kyle! Pours a near clear (some sediment) orangish gold with a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma is full of floral notes with a bit of light fruit and backing saison yeast and light grains. Flavor is similar with light fruits and flora with backing sweet grains. Not complex but drinkable.

NeoHippie2 (993) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Gross. I’m starting to think i just hate saisons altogether. Honestly this beer tastes like some kind of smoked canned meat. Seriously disgusting. I had to choke down the one I opened and pretty much beg my friends to take the rest of the six pack I had. I have yet to have a saison I have liked. Nasty.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 29, 2011
12oz bottle from Liquor Barn, Louisville. Darkish gold pour with a mild cloudiness at the core and a medium fluffy head. Hints of sediment and moderate lacing. Nose is softly grainy, with only a bare whiff of hops and spice. Medium body, slightly watery palate with none of the mild bite I’d expect from the style. Flavors are fairly anonymous, with a dose of spice at the front and a generic yeast note dominating the middle. Just a touch of bitterness in the finish, but overall a forgettable entry.

LilBeerDoctor (3457) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2011
On tap at Teller’s Hyde Park. Pours a clear orange brown with a very small white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, bready malt, and jam. Flavor of Belgian spices up front esp anise, more Belgian yeast and bready malt. Super light and drinkable. 6/4/7/4/14 (3.5/5)

bhensonb (11079) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 8, 2011
Bottle from Beverages4Less in Santee, CA. Pours hazy orange gold with a slight transient near-white head. Aroma is sort of fruity, suggestive of lightly earthy. Med body. Flavor is herby/spicy but not very farmyard. It has a certain tang, seemingly related to citrus. Quaffable.

Damico (2579) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2011
The beer pours light copper with a small white head. The aroma is ver light with sweet notes. There are notes of yeast saison flavors to dominate, but still too light overall on a medium body.

Jabic (429) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2011
Ar: Peach, rosy alcohol, slight spiciness. Ap: Cloudy pale orange - medium-large off-white head with good retention and a thick lacing. T: Fruity up front, peaches, pears, and bananas - light toasted malt with some soapiness - finish is very short, with slight pepper notes and medium bitterness. P: Medium-high carbonation - finish is dry and a bit watery. O: Easy-drinking saison with some nice and classic flavors - a stronger finish would be nice.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of drfabulous. Thanks! A touch hazy, golden orange appearance with a fluffy white head. Spicy, mildly peppery, light barnyard, belgian golden ale aroma. Peppery, floral, barnyard, a touch funky, Belgian ale flavor. Ok.
