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.

Draft sample. Poured hazy yellow orange color with an average fizzy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Medium yeasty citrus, spice aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation and sticky texture. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration.

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.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 3, 2011
Served on draft at Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized creamy head. Good head retention and lacing. Citrusy aroma with bready malts and a faint bit of cinnamon and clove. The taste is pale bready malts, citrus, plum, other fruity notes and a peppery hop finish. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

Bottle. Lemon peel, coriander, and malt aroma. Amber color with small head. Lemon peel malt and strong bitter coriander flavor. Pretty good - very spicy.

deyholla (6511) - 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.

DrSilverworm (6021) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2013
12oz bottle, from Party Source. On close-out for $1.45. Didn’t realize it was bottled May 2012 when I bought it. Half hazy orange color. Some dark sediment pieces in the body. Big white head, that soon fades to a reasonable amount. Leaves some loose lace. Stronger, smooth carbonation. Medium body. More dry texture. Some orange rind, light pepper in the flavor. Little dusty. Some light spiciness. Light bitter, little sweet. As it is, just an OK saison. Not too bad to wash a sandwich down with.

Clear golden with a fizzy white head. Hay and grass aroma and taste with a citrus zest flavor and a sharp finish.

Suttree (5073) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 11, 2011
I know we’re not supposed to rate to style here, and I’m cool with that. But when I see the word "saison" on a beer label, it raises certain...expectations. If this were called an amber, for example, I would’ve considered it a pleasant surprise, and possibly scored it higher. But as a saison...not so much. The is some of the spiciness I was looking for, but none of the funkiness. As I drank more, I did enjoy it,

nuplastikk (4299) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 28, 2012
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.
