Dave from Great Divide bought me my round at Kraftworks.
Aroma of citrus and belgian yeast. Pours yellow and hazy with a medium fluffy head. Bold taste of light citrus, nutmeg and yeast. Kicks you in the mouth and stays there. Yummmm. Thanks, Dave.

Bottle into tulip. Straw colored with floaties, highly carbonated, an endlessly morphing two finder head. Musky, spicy/floral aromas- I get yeast, cantaloupe, barnyard, violet, caramel, wet wool, metal shavings, sycamore tree… Flavor is much more crisp and fruity than I expected from the nose; sweetish, citric, chamomille and pepper, lychee, five spice. The palate is light, gassy, and sharp as ice shards. Kind of a Sprite and brettanomyces aftertaste. Leaves the tounge tingling. A complex and refreshing beer that is exemplary of the style. Even better than Saison Dupont.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 This one is great! You’re in for a treat. Aroma is of citrus, a little funk, and dough (yeast notes). Pours a pale golden that’s clear with a white head. A slight sour tartness with lots of fruity, yeast attributes and a tiny bit of indistinguishable funk. Finishes dry and sweet. Nice!

Crisp, fruity ale. The fruit doesn't overpower. A welcome taste. A gold standard for saison beers.

Aroma is yeast, white pepper, apple, white peach, white tea.
Flavor is apple, white tea, white pepper, yeasty protein, save blanc, cereal. Yeah, I said white a lot.
Medium to light body, good carbonation.
Very clear appearance, like pale apple juice.
The best 6 pack saison I have ever had.

Fairly hazy, golden yellow, poured into a Duvel tulip, rocky white head, crazy lacing, very cavernous head... Mild funk, saison yeast, light fruits, bright aroma, inviting... Slightly fruity, sliightly yeasty, a little peppery... Medium body with an airy quality, lively, gets a little yeasty as it warms... I really liked this...

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2012 Cloudy straw color, bright white head. Mild aroma of pilsner hay. Flavors reminiscent of classic saisons, but over 7abv its a bit strong. Mouthful creamy and full of wheat, maybe a bit big for a summer beer. Phenols at a nice level. A little bit cloying for style.Overall though a well made beer that ill get again. Tough style to interpret, so props to G D.

I love it. Just the right amount of funk. I let it settle, so it poured only slightly cloudy straw yellow, could have a lot more sediment if you like. Strong lemon and yeasty bread dough aroma. Sweet and tart with lots of fruit- lemon, apricot, tart apple - and a little spice. Lots of yeast character, sour funk, tartness, and that spiciness. Fairly quick dry finish. I’d put it in the biere de garde category rather than saison.

Aroma is spicy yeast, bananas and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is complex spices, orange/citrus, complex bread from the different malts and a tart/tangy finish.
