brokensail (14036) - San Leandro, California, USA - JUL 1, 2011
A: The pour on this one is a hazy golden color with a very large white head. S: Wasn’t sure what this was at first, but it definitely makes itself known as a Saison. Lots of spicy phenols, especially pepper, and plenty of fruit notes. A nice pear and apple aroma and a bit of straw and grass. T: The flavor profile is very similar to the aroma. Lots of pepper, straw, grass, and yeast notes. The fruit character is a bit more on the sweet side with a touch of apple juice to go along with the lemon zest and pear flavors. M: On the lighter side of medium in body with a medium to high carbonation. O: This was a nice Saison, and good on a hot day, but not an amazing beer.

bhensonb (12945) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle from Ken at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours golden orange (or orange gold) with a very slight white head. Aroma is mixed malt and brett. Med minus body. Flavor is like oaky white wine mixed with brett. And some earthiness. It is tart/sour. Barnyard. They got this one just excellent!

mcberko (10551) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2013
On tap at Belmont Station Bier Cafe, pours a cloudy pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out loads of ginger, Belgian yeast, some vinous notes, and a little funk. Flavour brings out loads of pepper, followed by ginger, light vinous notes, and light tartness. Quite dry and fairly vinous. Nothing special but solid.

JorisPPattyn (8793) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2012
Draught, announced as 5.2% ABV Pale golden beer with small white rim and lasting lace. Apple, faint grain nose. More apple, making it really cidery; lightly sweet, but with a fine bitter edge. Medium bodied at best, long lasting flavours. Frankly more cider than beer.

marcus (7987) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle from Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours cloudy golden with a tiny off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a tangy light malt flavor with a nice yeast presence and an oak finish. Very refreshing.

BMan1113VR (7909) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 17, 2011
On tap at Sourfest. Pours with a hazed golden body with a large and lasting white head. Great lace. Aromas are of funk, saison phenols, brett, grass (hops?), straw, delicate malt profile. Flavors are a little bit watery, but understandable at the ABV. Funk, light white wine, straw, hay, brett, earth. Dry, lively bubbles, light bodied. Very drinkable. I could drink a lot of this! I really enjoyed this one.

slowrunner77 (7852) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 14, 2014
similar to but different than Le freak, even outside being a smaller beer. Maybe because it is thinner the brett is immediately dominant. There is also far less hops and more fruit in this brew. Good stuff.
