On draught at Diegos in Newport, RI. Arrived to the table a cloudy gold with a thin-moderate white head. Nice tangy orange in both the aroma and the flavor as well as some Belgian yeast. I have to say I didn’t pick up the strawberries at all. Other than that, no problems.

smells like strawberry ice cream though you can detect the Belgian qualities nice aroma..has that pale yellow saison background but a little more amber and red than usual thin pure white head..tastes like a pretty good saison with over the top fruit flavors..interesting twist on things but not the smoothest blend..feels like it should light and smooth on the palate tingly carbonation..overall a nice dessert or nightcap beer but I wouldn’t want to do a six pack of them it’s a good idea just not well balanced between the saison and the fruitiness..probably would’ve been better as a straight up saison

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Nose of dusty pale malt and a little strawberry-rhubarb action. Lightly hazy golden with a steady stream of carbonation and a rocky white head. Taste is tart and sweet, strawberries and rhubarb but they’re both about equal with the lemony-peachy base. No big spice here, neither from addition nor from the yeast, save a very faint peppery character, and so the style transgression marks this as more of a fruit beer and less of a saison; yet the fruitiness is simply beautiful, very fresh and natural, as if a bit of puree had been added to every bottle. Does not cloy, no sense of alcohol at all, medium body a little slimy, but balanced and refreshing and really a juicy treat!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle. Large white head that leaves nice lacing atop hazy amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, strawberry, some spicy. Taste is moderately sweet, strawberry, some bubblegum, light spicy/pepper. Light-medium body, light stickiness. Much more a fruit beer than a saison.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at a Salem bar. Nice light aroma with hints of strawberry. Big too-old strawberry presence in the taste, with some vegetable bitterness. Nicer aroma than flavor, lovely mouthfeel.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Six pack from Julios. I know I’ve tried this before - surprised I hadn’t rated it. Anyhoo... here goes: pours out a slightly reddish light golden color. Thin head. Aroma is fruity and yeasty. Flavor is very fruity, perhaps a bit on the sweet side. Strawberry and rhubarb are evident. Slightly perfumy. Slightly tart with a classic Belgian yeast character. Not your usual saison.
