Bottle to tulip. Looks good; a hazy yellow with ample head and carbonation. Smells decent; yeasty and doughy. Tastes much like it smells with a little zip. Average on the palate. Not too shabby.

Tmoney99 (10549) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle. Poured a clear orange color with a large frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate citrus hop and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sour citrus flavor with a medium sour & sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectation where met.

jefcon (1376) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Nice saison, great farmhouse aromas and flavors. Lots of yeasty notes throughout, and a good balance of alcohol to cut through the beer. Light caramel on the finish, but sufficiently woodsy elsewhere.

jrob21 (2514) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Release 12 and 7.1%. Bottle back from beer run. Big body an lots of yeast. Band aidish aroma that resurfaces late in the sip again. In the meantime you have a sticky sweet and lemony drink. Bit of wheat and light grain flavors. Bold and aggressive due to the yeast but working well all told.
