5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Orange hued golden, pale haze, moderate sudsy white head, sparce lacing.   Somewhat of a musty barnish nose, not too floral tho.   Sweet musty hay and straw on the tongue.   Pale fruitiness.   Not heavy, but not too bright either.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Tiz okay, but not as floral or bright as others.   Thankfully not a bready example like so many other American versions.

thetmaxx (729) - West Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Poured from the bottle that was picked up at Apple Hill. Aroma is slightly sour malt. flavour is very typical of what I expect a farmhouse to be, how ever it finishes very sweet. thin lacing on glass, cloudy straw colour. Palate is thin and very easy to drink, @ 6.7% this is very easy to drink.

Not sure what kind of farmhouse ale tastes like corn and spent grains, but that’s what this brewery is calling this beer. Some coconut and spices in the flavor too, but the flavor of grain husks is overpowering. The nose is sweet and honey-like, but also quite husky in character. Medium in weight and carbonation, but the huskiness contributes a dusty astringency on the palate. Very hazy in appearance, golden in color, and capped by a short, off-white head that settles to a thin ring. Not enjoyable.

WakeandBake (549) - Greenville, Michigan, USA - MAR 21, 2009
A hazy straw colored pour with a two finger white head that quickly disappears.Aroma of belgian yeast funk,spicy and fruity,some very nice clove scent some peppercorn,citrus zest A slight fruitiness,with some hints at banana. The flavor is close to the aroma,yeasty funk all the way,earthy,slight fruit and pepper notes,lemon zest and a touch of grass,some nice light pale malt flavor with just a dash of alcohol. Medium body with lively carbonation,nice dry/lasting finish with a lingering spice aftertaste. A very nice brew,I would buy this often if I could get it locally.

ZazuH (42) - Brentwood, California, USA - JAN 18, 2009
(12 oz btl) Frothy white head fully diminishes w/ no lacing; cloudy straw color. Strong clove and citrus peel in nose w/ little to no malt. Lively carbonation adds to sharp tang of clove w/ little other noticeable character - slightly astringent. Aftertaste is almost entirely clove; yeast is barely detectable.

Oscbert (971) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 19, 2008
~Pours a cloudy light golden color with big fluffy white head. (In tulip glass) ~Spicy clove scent with some coriander and apple. ~Spicy fruity flavor, just like an Abbey ale, but with more wheat. ~A light crisp feel finished with a sharp dry spicy finish. ~ I thought this was a really good brew. Not sure why all the bad ratings. I think I may have gotten a fresh batch since it was bought from the brewery. Very nice.

hayduke (3159) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 20, 2008
From a 12 oz bottle this poured gp;d with a very light haze, small white head, and a small amount of lacing. Nose of caramel malts and fruit. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is citrus and light malts. Not much finish. Really easy to drink however.

LinusStick (2757) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2008
WOW!! Calling this a saison is REALLY stretching the definition. Aroma was a bit weak. LIght fruit and a hint of light malt. Pour was ugly. Looked like toilet water that has been clogged for a day. Taste was dreadful and near drainpour. Extremely sweet and sugary with a iced tea aftertaste. The only thing that comes to mind is this beer is a clown. It’s laughable and mocks real saison.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 17, 2008
Bottle: Misty gold color, light head and lacing. The nose is a bit malty with some pale and pilsner malts, spicy yeast esters, tons of coriander and clove with a bright orange note. A full sweet pale malt flavor that’s nearly cloying when it pairs with the spice and yeast zest. The finish is grassy and sweet; very spicy. Needs more carbonation, a bit more funk and a bit less sweetness.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - NOV 2, 2007
Poured a lightly hazed gold with a thin white head. Light leather and spice over malt make up the aroma. The flavor was malty with a yeasty spice finish. Medium body and light dull carbonation.
