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.

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.

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.

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

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2012 Pale gold with a white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is orange peel and the slightest hint of sourdough. The taste has some rye and yeasty qualities as well as a bit hit of orange, and an appreciable amount of bitterness to finish. I think the rye/grain flavour and aroma could be played up quite a bit more while still making this drink like a saison.

unclemattie (4250) - 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)

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Bottle. Pours with a clear golden hued body with a quick to fade white ring. Some very light lace. Aromas are grainy, malty, peanut shells, light esters and phenols, black pepper and 3M scotch-tape. Light banana and vanilla as well. Flavors are way too sweet for a saison. Lots of bubble gum, plastic, waxy, banana. Light rye spiciness. Odd candy-ish ester. Lively bubbles, medium dry. Not really flawed as a belgian beer, but not a great saison, and not particularly what I want to drink.
