COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Notes of citrus, strawberry, grass, and a hint of clove make this unique Belgian style ale complex yet satisfying.

mansquito (3297) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Pony Bar, Hellís Kitchen Mahattan tap ($6): Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is bubblegum and fruit. Taste is much the same. pretty weak. The flavors donít come together. Tastes sort of soapy. Palate and profile are pretty bland. This to me is another Kelso failure.

blipp (5967) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Flowery and spicy yeasty aroma. The flavor has spicy yeast and grassy and floral notes. Decent.

Lubiere (9790) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2012
A hazed blonde saison with thin lacing white head. In aroma, a grassy soapy spiced malt with light cloves. In mouth, a chalky sweet malt with light spices, so-so. On tap at TAP NY, April 28, 2012.

Pouring at TAPNY. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Soft wheat and musk. Medium bodied, grain and faint musk. Light lemon, musk. Grainy on the finish with a bit more muskiness coming back.

TheHopster (791) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - AUG 6, 2010
On draft at the Blind Tiger Ale House NYC. Unfiltered with a good palate. A smooth saison with subtle sweetness and mild bitterness.

popkow (285) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 26, 2010
On tap WFM into my growler. Hazy with a golden color with small white head. Light bitter taste with a lighter body than I prefer for a Saison. Carbonation was average and the finish did not linger. Average beer.

2.9
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Tap at the Diamond: Effervescent golden orange pour with an off white consistent film. Aroma is quite buttery. Apparent diacetyl with a grainy note in the background. Crisp carbonation. Light body- the flavor has fruity yeast notes- seems like hot fermentation esters that clash with butterscotch (diacetyl). Quite buttery with a nondescript grainy back. Why donít they just do a diacetyl rest? Wasnít it already hot fermentation with a Saison yeast? Weird.

sleepylopes (318) - New York, USA - AUG 12, 2008
cask with strawberry at spuyten. Nice sopay bubble wwthead on aslightly pink yellow body. Not much aroma and what. Is there is off the flavoris complex and wonderfull starts of much like any other like it and then hits a pop that is all the flavor of straberry with no sweetness. Finish is sour with funk and straw.
