Draught at Country Boy. Big yeasty IPA. Almost wheat meats IPA. Bitterness prevails at end but so does odd lingering taste.

mrmartin (655) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Saison/ipa hyrid. Pours a pale yellow with small white head. Yeasty nose and front with Hoppy finish. Light body, citrus and a little pepper. Its neither one thing nor the other but easy to drink.

ContemplateBeer (1432) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Aroma of gum, light pepper and citrus. Appearance is gold with white head. Flavor matches the nose with a dry citrus finish. Palate is very bubbly, fluffy and lively. Good; thanks to Dfab for the sample.

Arayaga2 (1754) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Unfiltered hazy gold with 2" of white head. Aroma is very saison with ginger, clove and a bit of sulfur over top of a mild hop buzz. Taste is that, plus a rather lemony hop note right off the bat, and pithy bitterness and graham crackery malt into the finish. $3/12oz

cheap (3802) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Very nice floral aroma and attractive presentation in the glass, coudy pale beer with a rocky head. First taste is freshly bitter. Really shows its alky content. Volatile finish, almost. Dull citrus unsweetened blast.

a nice citrus aroma. the nice light flavors that a saison should have with a nice light hoppy finish.

MrBunn (2384) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with lots of active carbonation, but a head that dies down from fairly massive to a thin film in short order, leaving suds sticking to the side of the glass. Aromas are mostly spicy, with a little edge of oranges, honey and grass. Flavor is an interesting mix... kind of peppery and sweet... like a honey orange glaze with white pepper thrown in or something. I would never go so far as to put "IPA" on the label if this were my beer, but itís pretty decent for an "Americanized" Saison.

shrubber85 (6978) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Bottle. Musty lemon, coriander and malt aroma. Hazy golden yellow color with giant white head. Musty-sweet lemon malt, coriander and orange peel hops flavor. Didnít know how this would work out but was very nice - tasty.

355ml bottle (Hilpea Haukki, Helsinki)
Rich hayey orange, small tight off-white head. Wohhhh, totally authentic saison aroma, this really could come from belgium. Lovely dry noble hops, bready grains. Super crisp palate, dry to the n-th degree, again. Alas, thereís frequent wafts of alcohol. Itís so dry that the alcohol stands out. Previous stringer beers hid it behind sugar, Better than your average saison. And that includes many a Belgian. If it wasnít for the alcohol this would be a stunner. Itís farmhousey, yest, but not in an eco way, or a funky way, or a sweaty horse way, or a pooey way. This is a classy brew. One of the few American beers thatís actually emulated the original stye very well.
