b3shine (6238) - Indiana, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Draft to taster at Barley’s in Asheville tonight. Looks solid; a transparent golden orange with foamy eggshell head. Smells yeasty with notes of spices as well. Tastes like it smells with a bit of baked bread as well. Average on the palate. Not bad.

jtclockwork (10262) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Draft at brewery at Saison Brett. Pours cloudy yellow gold with white head. Nose and taste of saison yeast, lemongrass and light brett. Clean. Nice. Not sure if this is the same beer and should be aliased.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 8, 2013
On tap at Barley’s, Asheville. Hazy straw gold pour, fluffy head and medium carbonation. Strong, sharp nose (this version was apparently modified with ginger), with light hopping and some bready notes underneath. Mouthfeel was medium, pleasantly light. Flavors weren’t so bad, but the ginger interfered with already sufficient grassiness and led to an overall impression of imbalance.

chinchill (2647) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Hazy golden body with an excellent head. Smells floral, fruity and quite pleasant. Virtually no funk in this saison but seems a bit hoppy -- perhaps it is just the "exclusive blend of five Belgian yeast strains" . A modicum of funk in the flavor, along wity some bread, honey, and earthy hops. This beer has a light body and finishes dry. O: a refreshing and relatively clean and hoppy saison.

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - FEB 20, 2013
On tap at the thirsty monk. Pours a hazy dark orange with a smallish head and just a little bit of lacing. Aroma is full of bubblegum and clove and reminds me more of a Belgian pale than a Saison. Not really any fruity or funky notes. More of the same bubblegum/banana/clove yeast esters in the flavor. It is quite muddled and not very refreshing or thirs quenching at all which is what this style is supposed to be. Mouthfeel is pretty thick and sticky which only detracts from the drinkability even more. Overall, not a good effort from Catawba Valley. This beer is pretty messy and not a good representation of the style whatsoever.

Shag (2655) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2013
A golden color with a white head. The aroma contains some citrus, spices, and herbal notes. The flavor is rather sour with some caramel and brown sugar in there too. More herbal notes are present. Overall this was ok but not my style of saison really.

DiarmaidBHK (3650) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Draft at taco Mac. Slight fruitiness on the nose. Fair amount of funk on the tongue. Nice bitterness on the finish. Solid but not spectacular for style.

Travlr (14698) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Draft. Clear golden color, scant white edge head. Aroma of funky, dusty lemons. Taste is sour lemons, peppery bitter finish. Decent.

Lubiere (10760) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2011
A hazed orange amber saison with a thin white head. In aroma, smoooth spiced malt with orange peels, papaya, very sexxxy! In mouth, a nice light saison with light fruity esters, bananas, clovers, milky and smooth. On tap at Knoxville Brewer’s Jam, Oct. 22 2011.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Sample at Knoxville Brewers’ Jam. Pours orange gold with off white head. The aroma is slight sweet caramel and some toast with lemon and coriander. The flavor is slightly sweet with an unexpected caramel note, some toast, and a mild spiciness. Dryish finish.
