crossovert (7866) - Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Tangy and tart yet sweet and yet unbalanced. A pretty messy beer, the yeast is there too adding sligth phenolics. Messy.

mcberko (7056) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 12, 2012
750mL bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of oranges, some light Belgian yeast, and light coriander. Flavour of coriander, banana and orange upfront, with a mild yeasty character. Nicely spicy and juicy saison. Solid stuff.

DuffMan (7025) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle, shared with Robbie. Very hazy straw yellow, lively white head. Very estery nose and palate, lacking significant hops, but this bottle may be old. Lightly spicy, chalky mouthfeel, dry finish. Not foul, but nothing stands out here.

deyholla (6954) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 7, 2012
On tap. Pours a hazy amber gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has sweet grains and citrus up front with a nice complexity added by the backing rye and Belgian yeast. Flavor begins with sweet citrus and grains with a hint of flora and backed by rye and Belgian yeast.

marcus (6769) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle from City Beer. Pours murky golden with a decent white head and a sharp fruity aroma. There is a slightly sour fruit and light malt flavor, with a dry finish. Not much of a yeast presence and a bit light on flavor, but easy to drink.

j12601 (6743) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 25, 2012
On tap at Hopfenstark during their anniversary party. Pours a hazy golden amber with a thin to medium sized white head. Soft floral yeast on the nose, spicy musk and toast. A little bit of esters. Medium bodied, sweet malt, floral notes and more yeast. Warm and spicy with a small amount of alcohol warming everything up. Finishes off with a long estery yeast note and a bit more spiciness. Very nice.

Ernest (6343) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Bottle (6.5% ABV, brewed May 2013). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of gum, lemon zest, pepper, hint of spearmint. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Whoa, baby! Ok, so this is a Saison Dupont clone, there should be absolutely no debate about that. It’s not quite as aromatically vibrant/complex (obviously not as phenolic), and the finish is not as balanced/bitter as Dupont, but otherwise this is a fantastic rendition. It’s very clean, and offers a fantastic fluffy mouthfeel. Alas, the matter of price is where the glowing words must end...at the same store here in Boulder, this beer is $15 compared to Dupont at $9. So...Dupont is better...and *substantially* cheaper. So explain to me why I would ever buy this again?

blankboy (6263) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2008
Draught at Vices & Versa. Pours a hazy, bubbly yellow-gold with an average size diminishing white head. Lovely aroma with lots of fruit, spices and light floral hops. Flavour’s quite floral, fruity, spicy and with a light bitterness. Medium bodied. A unique and enjoyable take on the style.
