bhensonb (10736) - 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!

brokensail (10635) - Orange County, 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.

BMan1113VR (7832) - 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.

JorisPPattyn (7807) - Antwerpen, 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.

Ibrew2or3 (6779) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 26, 2013
On tap at Flanny’s in Tempe during the tap takeover. It pours with a totally opaque deep pale gold body with copper hues and supports a . . . well, nearly no head at all. The aroma offers up faint soft apple and vinegar and then some saison yeasty spices, faint red wine notes and a fainter still Brett like funkiness. The taste is pretty darn smooth with a mix of malts, soft vinegar and sweet red apple notes rolling into saison yeastiness and mild Brett tartness and funk around the edges.

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.
