adnielsen (10199) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a hazy golden orange appearance with a cream colored head. Spicy herbal yeasty, quite rustic, peppercorn, banana, lemon aroma. Lightly tart, peppery/chewy/bready yeasty, moderately dry, dull lemon citrusy flavor. A lot of dry, grassy, herbal notes. Fun to drink.

3fourths (8801) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle. Effervescent and lightly hazed honey-colored body with a fine white head. Very Dupont-like nose. Citrus fruit, sugar / sugar cookie, peppercorns and phenols. Hoppier and sharper and closer to the recent Cuvée dry hopped batch. There’s a difficult to identify aroma that’s something like orange juice pulp, aromatic hop cones and bathsoap... it really seems to be the key to why the aroma works so well here. Medium body with soft and creamy carbonation, lots of tart, dried fruits, a silky, creamy but frothy and filling yeast character with natural carbonation to give it softness. Astonishing tartness and dryness in a beer that seemingly smells sugary and fruity. Crisp, quenching acid, medium+ bitterness, low sweetness, good acid, quaffable and flavorful. Mild hints of alcohol emerge after it breathes and warms.

Marheb (3534) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Un nez levuré et poivré qui laisse passer des notes de céréales mielleux. En bouche c’est rond avec une certaine sécheresse incomplète teintée de verdure. Une touche métallique engourdie momentanément la langue. Bon, sans plus.

lesifflebiere (1521) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 14, 2013
Blonde tirant sur le cuivré, avec quelques morceaux de levure en suspension ; un peu de mousse blanche crémeuse. Au nez, elle rappelle une blanche : une touche de bananes et de céréales blondes. Le côté saison ressort vraiment en bouche, avec une gorgée toute en épices et en fruits jaunes, avec du poivre délicat qui ferme la marche. On croirait même à du piment vert. Savoureuse et complexe, après une introduction quelconque, elle sort de l’ordinaire dans ce style de plus en plus intéressant.

mansquito (4474) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 29, 2013
The Sampler, Brooklyn ($15): Pours orange with a sea foam head. Aroma is tropical fruit and a bit of funk, but it ain’t as saisonesque as many other saisons. Taste is mildly bitter, with a hoppiness that carries over to the aftertaste. A little on the dry side. Somewhat sweet around the middle. Nothing all too impressive.

fiulijn (16924) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle from Elizabeth St., Bellingham
Hazy golden color; small head. The aroma is a bit plastic, some sweat, and light spices. Dry mouthfeel; mid-spicy flavor, but also some vegetables; ordinary bitterness; a bit of metallic feeling in the end.
Not exciting.

75 cl bottle, thanks to fiulijn. Pours cloudy orange with a small white head. Mild sourish and toasted malty. Bitter and citric. Toasted malty and light caramelish.

thegreenrooster (3650) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Pour is a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is sweet honey and barnyard. Flavor is a decent fresh fruit with some white wine and vinegar. Finish is bone dry and a little tart. No real mustiness or pepper which I like in a saison are found. This was tart and sweet. Found in a bargan bin for 7 bucks.

jtclockwork (11798) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours orange gold with bone white head. Nose and taste of peach bread, yeast, light spicy malt, lemongrass, rye and alcohol soaked orange peel. Medium body.

Gription79 (2716) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Poured from a 750ml bottle. This is a very yeast driven saison. Fruity, banana, some rustic yeasty farmhouse qualities. A good beer, but not that great of a saison.
