harrisoni (15314) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2012
355ml bottle from The Bottle Shop, Canterbury. Hazy orange gold lasting thick white head. Yes Belgian saisony aroma, with some piney American hop. You know what? Itís got quite a good Belgian saison quality but with a tight as your ass American twist. I like the Belgian authenticity, but it lacks a touch of the true wildness of a Belgian beer. If anything its too perfect, too clipped. Tasty as hell. I enjoyed it, even though it is a bit too good. Bit of perfume on finish, Decent bitterness on finish. Yep, like this.

kaser (4150) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Pours clear orange with a TON of frothy white head, had to scoop head off with a spoon actually. Great floral and citrus aroma. Spicy and mild hops taste. Really taste the saison in this more than the IPA. Decent overall but was hoping for more of an IPA taste

Pailhead (5732) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy citrus, light floral notes, Belgian yeast, orange peel, and grapefruit. It pours a mostly transparent gold with just of touch of haze. It has a three finger soapy white head with excellent retention. Quite a bit of clumpy lacing is left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate citrus flavors. Thereís some hints of Belgian yeast in the background. The finish has moderate grapefruit, light-moderate floral notes, and just a hint of lemon peel. Itís light-medium bodied with lively, but not prickly, carbonation. Overall, itís a nice cross between an IPA and a Saison. I would lean towards labeling it as an IPA.

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2012
Very well hopped citric nose with grapefruit and toasted cloves. Pours cloudy orange with a fluffy head. Flavour follows the nose and finishes with tangy hops and some sweet bubblegum. Not bad.

b3shine (6749) - Indiana, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle to snifter. Looks decent; a translucent orange with TONS of head. Smells like a decent saison. Tastes a little bitter for a saison, but not bad. Average mouthfeel. Decent.

A real good floral and citrus aroma, beautiful golden color with an abundance of frothy head. A very light sweetness and medium bitterness. Light bodied, very fizzy with a clean finish. Overall a great summer time beer thats crisp, clean and refreshing!

marcus (7671) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 19, 2012
On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours golden with an attractive beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a yeast-laden pale malt flavor that is fruity and slightly bitter. Nice hopping.

fiulijn (16462) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2012
Bottle from Maruhn, Darmstadt
Hazy golden color. The aroma is spicy, sharp, with hints of lemon peel, bitter orange, talc, light phenol. Dry but smooth mouthfeel; the flavor is sharp and spicy, very spicy, with some malt and wheat; the bitterness level is quite high, and there is enough fruity edge with bitter orange character. Strong and long final.
Interesting but rough.

Draft. Hazy, golden, white wispy head. Piney, spicy, and minty. Bitter, yeasty, lemon, and a maltiness.
