tennisjoel (1315) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Clear golden pour with a very creamy frothy white head. Definitely get the sour apple combined with typical saison aromas of pepper, honey, biscuit. Interesting palate. Slightly tart from the apple. Saison characteristics are subdued. Slightly watery. Interesting, but I wish the flavor was stronger on the saison, to balance the sour apple.

Draft at Claude Hoppers. Golden color, very little head. Apple and spices, tart finish. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

drpimento (2896) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 15, 2016
Aroma’s the best thing here with traditional saison characteristic and only a hint of the band aids to come. Flavor, on the other hand, isn’t so good. I can pick up the saison, but the apple corrupts it and creates the band aid- blech. Body is a touch on the thin side. Thankfully, the finish isn’t long.

oldrtybastrd (4888) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2016
Pours a golden amber color with big fluffy head. Aromas of fruit, grass, yeast, and some dusty notes. Starts spicy effervescent, then to some grassy funky highlights...nice brett finish.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with small white head. The aroma is strong apple skin, spice, yeast. Medium mouth, funky, grain, light apple flavor, lingering dry finish, very good.

Syzzer (632) - Oregon, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Enjoyed with brother Bryan. poured from a bomber. Taste of a classic Saison Farmhouse ale with cereal and sour fuji apple. Smell of sweet sour apple candy. Nice rich yellow color partially cloudy with white frothy head that lingers. 9.0bry 9.35bd

Pour from bottle. Light yellow with medium head. Sweet and bitter. Tastes like a dirty apple rind. Not into it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Release#64 abv 7.1%...This is somewhat tart - not sour, but a good balance between sweet - tart - spice - fruit. Refreshing and easy drinking...fairly reminiscent of apple cider.

Very crisp and refreshing, color isn’t the best but super tasty and leaves a nice tart taste on your tounge. Overall really good beer!

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

KyotoLefty (8858) - 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.
