brokensail (11612) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Pours a golden orange color with a white head. Some wheat and bread sweetness up front along with floral hops and yeast. A bit of grass and perhaps a light citrus note. Rather bitter for a saison, but not overwhelmingly so. Some cracker and bread malt, a bit of grass, and some floral hops. A bit of yeast, mild pepper notes, and a hint of sweet fruit esters.

ksiwzos (30) - GREECE - DEC 15, 2014
Light hazy medium orange with large head with amazing lacing, lasting, white head. Aroma is light malty, some apple, nice flowers from the hops, grass. Not very intense but complex and beautiful. Very dry and hoppy, a bit fruity(coriander?) with medium carbonation. Just notes of funk. So hoppy and beautiful, but complex too. Truly lovely.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 18/20
UXO (419) - CANADA - NOV 26, 2014
Pours hazy pale to medium amber with a one finger of light beige head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, moderate lacing. (4/5) Nose is pithy citrus, yeast, cloves, barnyard funk, faint banana. (8/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderate bitter, mild funk. (8/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, dry bitter funky finish. (4/5) A pleasant, slightly funky dry saison. Fruit is muted and restrained, as is the sweetness. For the price, though, it could stand to be a bit more interesting - as it stands, it’s a decent beer at a premium price. I think it’s slightly better than the sum of its parts, though, so I’m bumping up the overall a bit. (18/20)
