Very cloudy yellow with a thin white head. A bit tart, apple and spice, some lemon as well. Nice and punchy.

KyotoLefty (9114) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 21, 2015
Tap at Ape. Tart apple nose, pilsner malt, cinnamon and lots of spice. Clear gold. Tart apple flavor, saison yeast with a decent saison character, bit basically apple pie with way too much spice in there. Smooth, medium body. No thanks.

gripweed57 (1344) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - NOV 12, 2015
22 ounce bottle. Release # 63; 7.8% ABV. Pale yellow gold color. Small creamy white head. Yeasty malt nose has obvious notes of Apple, cloves, cinnamon and cardamom. Flavor is semi-sweet with crisp apple notes. More cinnamon and cloves in midtaste. Tart and dry fruit as well. Yeasty notes in finish. Some spicy hops with warming alcohol. Comes across a a cross between a Farmhouse Ale and a Cider.

oh6gdx (25127) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2015
Bottled@SBWF2015. Golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is floral, wooden, herbal and some mild apple skins to it. Flavour is ginger, some apples skins, mild fruity and wooden notes with some very strange things going on.

stevoj (3839) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Growler from Albertsons. Release 62. Notable that this straight up Saison in aroma and taste, fruit comes in second. Musty, yeasty, bready aroma. Taste follows with floral, yeasty Saison tastes, accented by the sour apples. Saison nature shines through

Nische (1834) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2015
Sample at SBWF. Hazy golden with small off white head. Peppery aroma with marzipan, yeas and citrus. Dry and peppery taste with loads of spices. I don’t feel much sourness and almost no apples. Way too much spices in this one.

TBone (16079) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2015
Bottle at SBWF2015. Yellow color, not much head. Herbal rubbery apple aroma. Light-bodied. Rubbery apple, white-peppery Saison yeast. Some tartness. Simple but odd.

omhper (23313) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2015
Bottled at SBWF. Hazy golden, small head. Aroma of marzipan and elderflowers. Mid dry with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Winegums, grains and marzipan, some sour green apples. Low bitterness. Elegant.
