Golden, hazy, and sudsy head holds. Nice funky straw notes with citrus in nose. Ginger, orange, spicy taste. Love the barnyard funkiness. Mouth feel is full of carbonation. This is a fun saison, very enjoyable.

bartlebier (1638) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2014
650ml bottle, bb? merci embrouille! Clean, light, sessionable New World rendition of the style, subtly redolent with a range of spices and culinary accompaniments to Californian cuisine: tangerine, lemongrass, Sezuan pepper, clotted cream, going on indeed green tomatoes. Not getting much funk or any non-stainless steel-concocted aromas, the ¿dryhopped dryness a means to easygoing sessionability, going on maracuja bubblegum. Careless summer refreshener, - pay the field workers a Cupertino day’s ransom and send them out with a case of this?

OleR (4799) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2014
Pours a shady yellow, under a firm shiny white head. Dry tropical-fruity nose, with a fine peppery touch. Hint of leafy hops. Properly light-bodied. Fine sparkling carbonation. Taste has fresh lemony fruitiness. Hint of mild resiny bitterness and a fresh and light sourness. Dry, restrained malt body. Very refreshing, quite so moreish. [Bottle from Kihoskh, København]

ejr (121) - Sarpsborg, NORWAY - JUL 13, 2014
Klar lys gyllen med et hvit skum som festet seg litt i glassveggen. Aroma av meldt, sitrus, gress og krydder. Smaken følger aroma, men fer innslag av søte frukter og banan også mer innslag av hvete. Fin bitterhet i avsluttningen.

Stuedmaster (207) - Vista, California, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Pours hazy light gold with a decent white head that retains. Aroma of wheat, coriander, lemon, ginger, pepper, slight grass. Flavor is dry with light bitterness, lightly sour. Light to medium body, slick texture, lively carb,, and clean, sweet/sour finish. Not as distinct as many saisons, but a decent brew which is refreshing and crisp.

RedSox2004 (1229) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Clear bright golden yellow with an enormous fluffy white head and great lacing. Standard saison aromas of bubblegum, Belgian yeast, pepper, and clove. Lightly sweet, lightly hopped, a bit of tartness pokes through toward the end. Light body, brightly effervescent, creamy mouthfeel and a crisp finish. Extraordinarily refreshing.

POLK (2195) - Hørning, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2014
Very nice yellow color. slightly dull Unfortunately, not quite fresh. Fine easy-drinking creamy beer with fine carbonation. But I’m missing is a little more spicy notes from the yeast.

ryanscourt (737) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Nice body. Fizzy mouth feel. Nice spicy start with enjoyable flavors. Doesn’t finish as nice as it starts. A little bit of an anticlimactic finish.

2013-01-18 - with blankboy, jercraigs & mabel - my bomber. Bubbly hazy gold with a huge lasting pillowy white head. Smells like a saison all right - floral, spicy, with a bit of tart tree fruit, quite grassy, almost berliner weiss-like with some lemon and lacto sourness as well - solid stuff. Taste is sweet, but follows, quite a bit of pear and a lot less grassiness and sourness - nice enough, but sweeter than I thought it would be based on the aroma. Fairly thick-bodied, solid carbonation, finishes quick and fruity, with a hint of dry grassiness - all in all a very nice saison and extremely easy to drink - pretty much zero alcohol presence.

Timvim (73) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle @ Midsummer party 20140621. Aroma of citrus, pepper and a slight funkiness. Taste is spicy, oranges, grain. Very light bodied and refreshing. Could be argued that it is too bland, but I like it and consider it well worth the price.
