Draft at heartland. Somewhat faint aroma. Muddy yellowish orange body. Really attractive. Nice, fruity saison with a hint of funk. Really enjoyable brew.

bartlebier (2683) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JAN 26, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2014 16oz bottle from Ridgview Liquor, Green Bay/WI 08/2013, emptied midway up to the UP (from on the road notes). Test-tube Dupont, slightly metallic. Still comparatively easy drinking, given any character is on the horizon at best, but tastes mainly like laboratory funk injected into an undefined straw pale ale. There is some white pepper, grassy hops and strawy malt character but overall: A convincing, truly slow-grown organic Saison remains a thing of beauty and seems to be one of the styles beyond many US breweries’ grasp/range/interests/palates?

Patrickctenchi (4992) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle: Pours cloudy orange-yellow with a short, off-white head. Sweet fruit, barnyard aroma. Taste is lemony, fruity, slightly yeasty, with a mild, spicy/bitter peppering. Pretty good.

Chudwick (2479) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Pint bottle - nose is floral and a bit like a head shop, but maybe soapy. Spicy like incense stick ash. Citrus aftertaste. Slightly sweet and a little tart. Short finish. Light-ish body.

Nuffield (3892) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Indescript yellow color, somewhat darker than the norm. Some fruit appears in the front, giving way to a few grassier notes and some pepper, before fading to a quick finish. O.k., drinkable, but not distinctive. (on tap, The Stone Tap, Hudson, WI)

Was satisfied with this saison. Paired well with my sweet glazed pork for dinner.

Fritz123 (1360) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. I like the look of the label for whatever reason. Snifter at home. Pours a nice golden light amber with a thin white head. Nose is citrus, spices and earth. The taste fell slightly flat after the nose but overall not bad. Light notes of citrus (lemon and apples) with mild spices and kind of an arugula greens taste. Dry, crisp finish. Medium to heavy carbonation. Not bad, but not memorable either.

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Pours sparkling amber with a creamy off-white head that could’ve stuck around for a bit longer. Medium intensity musty yeast aroma. Nice flavor... not as yeasty as other saisons I’ve had, but bright citrus and coriander notes make it easy to drink. I didn’t have the highest of expectations from this, but was pleasantly surprised.

Bottle. Orange pour with white head. Smells of malt and yeast. Tastes of the same with a very slight bitterness. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
