RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Draft. Pours bright gold. No head. No real aroma. Taste is bracingly acidic. Not pleasant. Like drinking alcoholic pineapple juice.

Drake (8779) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Draft at Beer Run. Pours a clear yellow color with a creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of tart pineapple, yeast, earthy notes. The taste is pale malts, yeast, herbal notes, tart pineapple and bit of butter. Medium bodied.

DrSilverworm (6817) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2013
10oz on tap at Catskeller. Mostly hazy golden orange color. Good thin kind of rocky off-white head. Decent lace. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp / soft carbonation, of moderate strength. Flavor of pineapple juice and light spice. Lightly sticky finish. Kind of sweet, tart taste. Halfway through the taste gets to be a little too much. Maybe too much fruit, not enough saison body.

harrisoni (14020) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2013
On tap at the Rake. Yes definitely pineapple but with quite a funky saison yeast. Quite tart. Touch of bleach. Can’t say I particularly like it. Ok

Leighton (11649) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2013
Keg at the Rake - London. Pours clear yellow with a creamy white head. Nose holds a decent dose of tropical fruits, some semi-dry pineapple. Light to medium sweet fkavor with moderate dough, glue, pineapple, lemon, some bitter citrus rind. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. More semi-dry pineapple to finish, hints of glue, doughy pale malts, light bitter grass and lemon rind. So so.

b3shine (5737) - Indiana, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a slightly hazy golden yellow with white head that dissipates into lacing fairly quickly. Smells solid; pineapple, yeast, and saison spice. Tastes like it smells, but not as balanced. Average on the palate. An interesting take on the style.

PhillyCraft (3391) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Draft at Barcade, clearish yellow gold with light carbonated head and body. Notes of saison yeast, cardboard, flowers, and pineapple juice. Its not too sweet or overpowering. As it warmed the pineapple got a little bloody tasting, almost like you were licking a can of spent dole. Weird.

devman171 (1022) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUL 29, 2013
On Tap, pours golden with nice head. Aroma is pineapple and some light spice. Taste is fruity sweet pinnapple then a lingering spice finish, pretty tasting. Would prefer a tart finish here.

nimbleprop (5085) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 26, 2013
On tap at Meridian Pint. Pours a clear gold with some cloudy, white head. Nose is faux pineapple, candy, fake soap. Flavor is sweet and very pineapple-y, some yeast, candy. Slick finish. A little odd.

mansquito (3513) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Barcade, Brooklyn tap ($6): Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is pineapple, a bit of saison yeast, some light spiciness, and some more tropical fruity. Taste is mostly similar. Lightly sweet. Fruity tinge. Some light fruity hoppiness int here as well. Easy to drink and pleasant.
