Oakes (12551) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 15, 2014
Hazy blonde, not much head. Lots of phenolic yeast...common saison yeast.... Sweetish, but in the finish there’s a touch of acidity and pedio that doesn’t seem like it should be there. Ends up not that interesting save for the faults.

Travlr (11812) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 15, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2011 Draft. Sweet aroma and finish, too sweet, too light and not enough barnyard to be a classic saison.

On tap @ Epic (Denver). Pours a pale straw pour with a white head. Tart lemon and citrus, banana, and grass on the nose. Pears, apples, and a touch of pepper. Maybe some coriander. Sweet malt as well. Flavors of banana, pear, and apple. Light citrus, a touch of lemon peel, and clove on the finish. Sweet malt and sugar notes all the way through. Not really a saison, but a decent Belgian-style beer.
