Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a orange tint and a thinnish off-white head, about only a centimetre tall. Aroma of alcohol, yeast, coriander seed, curacao and a bit of rye - not much though. Medium-bodied; Assertive yeast and a good amount of coriander seed and lemon and orange rinds. Aftertaste is fairly mild with the yeast and malt coming through but not much of anything else. A touch of sugars at the end with a hint of bitterness. Overall, an acceptable beer - but nothing sublime and with a few good tastes, nice, but not as complex as I was expecting. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Super Jr Market (BestDamnBeer Shop) in San Diego, California on 06-May-2012 for US$6.49 sampled at home in Washington on 05-July-2012.

22 ounce bottle pours an orangish color, aroma of orange zest, grapefruit, pine resin and some spicy yeast. Flavor is the same, didnt taste like a regular sassion.

This smells horrible; like soured milk. Looks nice though. The flavor is interestingly bad. Not real heavy, a bit sweet, but it just canít quite overcome the outstandingly bad aroma.

It pours a dark orange color with a large off white head. The aroma does not indicate a Saison at all. Thereís some dull toffee, sweet over ripe fruit and a bit of spice. The flavor does have some Belgian yeast spice along with some notes of plum, apple and fig. The dominating sweetness is pretty simple and cloying. It reminds me a bit of circus peanuts or cotton candy. The finish almost saves it with a little balancing spice and rye malt. Not terrible, but pretty boring and simple. Iíll pass on this one.

Pours a soft and pretty clean straw yellow with two fingers of frothy head. Nose is papery and cidery, stale with lots of acetaldehyde. Very very light saison character, hints of spicy/peppery notes and a light tartness. This just isnít cutting it. Light-medium body and dry finish. Meh.

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)

The aroma is very malty with rye as well as grassy and pine hops. The appearance is dark gold with a smallish head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall this is good with the alcohol well hidden.

Aroma is yeasty and a little fruity, not strong but still inviting. It pours a nice clear amber with a fairly thick and somewhat persistent pale golden head that leaves a little lacing. Flavor is definitely better than the aroma - not quite full-bodied, but enjoyable, malty, fruity (apple plus a little pear) and yeasty, just a tad sweet and just a tad hoppy. Smooth texture has plenty of fizz and firm body. No crisis here - just a good sippiní brew.

A 22-oz bottle shared with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. Poured a hazy orange with a light tan head and a lot of tiny bubbles in the beer. The nose was barnyard, with that slightly moldy damp hay smell, with citrus thrown in. Medium to full body and a slick and very smooth mouthfeel. The flavor is very complex with new tastes coming forward as you progress, including the barnyard, bubblegum, citrus, vanilla, and rye. These flavors continued into the finish, and the beer just more enjoyable as time went on. The alcohol was perfectly hidden. This complex and very tasty beer defies style. It is what it is, and that is very good.
