Bottle either 2010 or 2011 and served in a Half Acre snifter: pours a clean golden hue with a fizzy head and okay lace. This is what happens when you dig around your "cellar" and find a Saison that you had no idea you had and had no intention of aging. Good news is that it is still quite drinkable even if the lemon has likely faded as has any pronounced hop profile. Nice whisper-y pale grain and flowery character along with a dash of yeast spices. No noticeable aging effects like cardboard nor band-aid. Actually it is more than just drinkable, it is pretty damn tasty.

Thanks to Moll for sharing. Dry and fairly grain heavy. Little bit of citrus and floral character. Dry. Pretty boring. Bit too much body.

22 oz. bottle shared by Bunker. Pours a hazy light golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is citrus, lightly floral with sweet applesauce and hints of tropical fruit. The flavor has more sweet applesauce and citrus, light herbal and spice notes, light yeast and a touch of hay. Interesting take on the style.

Bottle shared by Bunker. Poured a hazy amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate fruity citrus and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet yeast citrus flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectation where met.

Bottle to snifter (thanks Bunker). Looks fine; blonde with low carbonation and thin lacing. Smells like applesauce. Tastes like a saison with an okay mouthfeel. Decent.

Bottle shared by TheAlum in the GTMW ticket line, thanks Adam! Pours an unclear straw yellow with a soapy white head, the aroma has a good amount of citrus and tropical fruit, the flavor has a yeasty front end with some fruit and barnyard in the finish, really refreshing overall, good stuff.

Bottle shared by TheAlum in the GTMW ticket line...thanks Adam! - Pours light hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is honey and tropical fruit, with sweet agave nectar. Drier taste, with apple juice, white grape, honey and a mineral and yeast finish. Smooth and lightly slick in the mouth.Was a great change of pace from some big beers in the tasting.

22oz bottle, shared by dwm1034. Thanks! Pours a hazy, bright yellow color with a big white head and some lacing. Aroma is citrus, lemon, Belgian yeast spicyness, bread. A little light on the palate with soft, smooth carbonation. Flavor is sweet, bread, a little yeast, a little clove, with a light, sweet finish. A very easy-drinking saison.

bomber into a Lost Abbey glas...First beer of the day at our Sunday tasting at Seans. Perfect weather outside, a perfect beer to start the day with, easy to drink above average abv session. Big time thrist quencer, crisp drinker...A light gold with light carbonation, decent enough looking...ARoma is light lemon, citrus, light hops, not at all a typical belgian saison, not funk or floral hoppiness. Easy to drink and tasty light lemon on the front, crisp hop finish. A well done saison better out of the bottle than on tap tap, well worth getting on a nice summer day.
