SDalkoholic (2089) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JAN 5, 2012
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Poured a gloomy golden almost brass color with a small creation of head which eventually dies out forming an O-ring. The aroma has a grassy aroma of hops and a sweet balance of rye or sourdough bread and reminds me a lot of how an abbey tripel smells. The flavor comes across as spicy with a minor taste of rye and a grassy plant like finish, but other than that, this saison lacks substance and taste as though it is heavily watered down.

December 2012. 20 oz. bottle. Hazy orange brew with a white head. Aromas of grain, bread, yeast and malt. This one is a bit off and out of balance. Maybe that is why itís retired now.

Bottle - Leather, feet, dark malts and rye spice. Cloudy brown with a thin whitish head. Tastes much like it smells with a bit of grass. The rye makes this pretty cool, I like this.

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

Goodgrief (1742) - 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.

KajII (768) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 8, 2012
22oz bottle. The pour was a cloudy amber orange with an average (1-2 finger) white creamy head that slowly receded, down to a thin film with a small collar and possessed very good streaky lacing. The aroma was of a light bread malt and a musty Belgian yeast with notes of apple, pears, rye, a mild peppery spice and a slight tartness. The taste was lightly sweet with a mild tartness and a nice fruity presence from the start, and then became rather yeasty with a mild taste of rye and a slightly spicy ending. The flavor lasted an average duration after the swallow, with a lightly tart spicy taste left hanging on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was a bit past light in body and watery in texture with a nice lively carbonation. Overall this is a brew with a very interesting taste. Not exactly sure what to think of it, but I do know it is rather tasty and really grows on you the more you drink...

Tap at Haud Staudt. Pours dark black, thin head. Rye aroma, rye taste, a bit odd.
