crazyvin (1940) - New York, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Initially it poured a nice clear, slightly carbonated golden color. It slowly developed an nice haze as the yeast began to stir. Had a white head that was frothy, but quickly fading. Some lace. Aroma had a mild barnyard quality to it. Some grass hops and a nice spice note. Missed the orange peel. Flavor had a little more grassy notes to it. Malts were of hay and light toast. Some spice to it. A smooth body with just the right amount of carbonation. A palate cleanser.

Has a nice fresh aroma. Slightly citric and spicy taste that is quite good. However I don’t like the finish that much, it’s too dry and dull. But it’s overall a good beer.

Block (1408) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Light and mediocre. Pale yellow pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet and grassy. Flavor is equally light with grass, wheat, and some spice.

bartlebier (1723) - 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 (4802) - 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 (171) - 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 (212) - 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 (1252) - 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 (2219) - 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 (745) - 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.
