From bottle, very little head, Very citrusy aroma, medium fruity body, orange peel finish. My first farmhouse ale, very refreshing. Good flavor without being too substantial

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz can...Pale yellow with a nice funky aroma. Yeast, earth, funk, and spice greet your tastebuds and a pleasant tartness develops on the swallow. Finishes clean, crisp and dry. Excellent example of the style.

Aroma is heavily citrus and funk, taste is a bit of lemon, a lot of banana, and a bit of spice. Not bad, but not great.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On keg at Brew Dog, Leeds. Only a US brewery would make something like this. It’s vaguely "Belgian", but in no one specific way. Kinda Dupont-y saison vibes but sweeter/denser, or like a drier, more peppery Duvel. Kind of weiss-y too. A melange. Banana peel. Lemons. A little too sweet. Eh.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Keg at BrewDog Helsinki, 20150909) The beer poured cloudy and pale orange. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, tartness and spiciness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, spiciness, tartness, grass, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was tart and bitter. A very tart brew to be called as a Saison but still an enjoyable one.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Pale, cloudy banana-yellow with a short-lived head of white. Soft banana, sweet pear and a bit of tart green apple. The flavor replicates this, with the banana/peardrop leading before tangy wheat, apple and alcohol. Finish leans sweet. Body’s a little big and fluffy for the style, and CO2 is low. Misses he mark a bit.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. can, consumed on 8-30-15. Pours a grainy, hay-like dirty gold with a large amount of cream-colored to light taupe head. Mostly clear with some haze. Very pleasant, floral, grassy, classic saison aroma explodes from the pour. Wheaten, hefeweizen-like flavor but stronger and better than a typical hefeweizen. Vanilla and cinnamon-like wheaten spiciness. Light hoppy dryness in the finish. A touch of booze. Tasty! Medium body. Frothy and smooth. Lively enough in the palate. I’m pleasantly surprised by just how good this is. I shouldn’t be, because Great Divide has been churning out well above average beer for a long time by craft brewing standards. This is an underrated saison here on RateBeer. Refreshing summer beer. The aroma and the flavor on this one are well above par.
