Bottle poured into glass. Light in color, goldish hue with a orange tint. Aroma is somewhat like cereal, a tad wheaty with slight hints of fruits. Not really all that exciting but a half way decent beer.

Slightly cloudy yellow orange pour with small off white head. Aroma of rye malt, belgian yeast, spices and lemon citrus. Taste of rye malts, yeast, slightly spicy, lemon citrus, slightly dry finish. Perfect carbonation, perfect mouthfeel, incredibly easy to drink, ABV well hidden. Lots going on in this beer but everthing comes together perfect with no one thing overpowering the others. I loved this beer, cant believe its not getting higher ratings. Perfect beer for spicy foods.

unclemattie (4262) - Georgia, USA - APR 10, 2012
22oz bottle. Clear golden pour, white head. Aroma of spicy rye grain. Dry taste of rye malt, some earthy spice, bready yeast character. Finishes with a bready dryness. Tastes like a session ale, only heavier than what a session normally is. Simple flavors, medium bodied, alcohol well hidden. (3201)

Light gold and hazy with a thin white head. Aroma is honey, lemon, and peppery hops. Taste is light biscuit with sweetness and slight sourness with a bit of hop bitterness. $5/22oz

I like it. I donít get the hate Iím seeing for it. Aroma is a bit muted, but the proper Rye, sweet wheat, and citrus notes are there. The taste is extremely smooth. Sweet rye, biscuity malt, citrus... classic farmhouse notes. FInish is slightly bitter, but mostly just sweet rye and citrus. This beer hides the ABV really well too. Itís smooth, balanced, and damn good.

Bomber from Total Wine, Greenville, SC. If ever a name was an object lesson in how to avoid snarky ratings, this would be a top contender. But in fairness, it actually is emphatically a saison in terms of its majority characteristics. So no stylistic crisis, but just not an especially good beer. Light copper pour, moderately carbonated, and an unassuming nose of grain, generic yeast, and phenols. Slightly watery mouthfeel does little for the flavors, which come across like buttery popcorn, mild spice, and a bunch of fruits. Meh.

22oz bomber, no date for $8.49 at OB Quik Stop a couple days ago. Clear golden with a small off-white head, low retention down to a thick ring. Sweet rye as well as some fruity sweet yeast esters (overripe peach and banana) and a tinge of earth. No pepper notes so far. Flavor follows suit with overripe fruit and moderate earthy rye sweetness. I canít believe this is 8% ABV, masked incredibly well. Not a whole lot else going on, as far as I can tell. Dry finish, bitterness peaked at a 3-4. Medium body with light prickly carbonation. Didnít seem like a saison to me--more like an overestered Belgian ale with some sweet rye.

Not much to this one...straw colored pour with a fluffy ivory head. Yeasty nose with mild pepper, lemongrass, and earthiness. Slightly hoppy with a smidge of citrus. Meh.

Goodgrief (1811) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Crystal clear golden pour (unfiltered?). Not much of an aroma. Sweet fruity flavor with honeysuckle and a grainy rye finish. Tastes nothing at all like a saison. It wasnít bad, just boring.
