arminjewell (6152) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Pour on tap at the brewery, clear yellow pour with white head, aroma brought white fruits, hints of sweet sugars, some vanilla, grain, touch of grass, slight buttery note as well but not nearly as bad. Taste is a mix of white fruit, grass, grain, biscuit, bread, slight sweet sugary note, finishing fairly sweet.

onceblind (4014) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Clear golden with a big yeast ester nose with hay and barn funk with a little bit of citrusy/golden grain sweetness. Flavor is big and bold with a lot of gold grain sweetness and a touch of booze, with a yeasty eccentricity and a touch of light fruit flavors. Ends a little doughy, but sweet and bold and complex, yet approachable.

theothermatt (165) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Tap at De Steeg. By far their best beer. Pours cloudy and golden. Aroma of hay, wheat, and spice. Very wet and rich, farmhouse and almost like a wheat bread. Very cereal. Finishes slightly dry. Really nice.

adnielsen (8963) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Tap @ De Steeg. Pours a hazy golden orange appearance with an off white head. Spicy, banana, orange citrusy, clove, somewhat sweet/boozy, hay, light barnyard aroma. Pretty thick sweet toasted malty, orange/tangerine citrusy, fairly spicy, wet paper, straw flavor that dries out somewhat on the finish. A bit strong for my taste.

Steve_0 (2575) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 19, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pour is clear golden with a medium white head and great lacing. Lemony, biscuity, somewhat musty, straw, white peppery, floral, sweet fruity, and grassy aroma. Taste is musty, citrusy, peppery, phenolic, biscuit, straw, lemon peel, and esters with a lightly spicy finish. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. This is a really well-crafted saison, very balanced and highly drinkable.
