Had a Kuhnhenn Summer Solstice. Pours page yellow with thin white head. Aroma of lemon, cloves, wheat. Tastes of light citrus, wheat, cloves, coriander. Quenching medium mouthfeel. Pretty decent saison.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2011 Bottle shared by the brothers K, and on tap. Hazy dark golden, with average white head. Aroma has a nice balance of floral and citrus up front, fruity esters, light pepper. faint grass, light pils malt background. Flavor on par, pils malt comes through a little more. For everything going on, really clean. Could be a tad drier. Medium carbonation. Well done.

Pailhead (5654) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - FEB 10, 2007
On tap: The aroma has strong yeasty notes with moderate apple, peach, and faint spice. It’s a transparent golden-orange with a small white head. The flavor starts with a big yeasty kick. There is moderate apple in the middle and finishes mildly spicey with a hint of sourness. I have to say I’m pretty suprised by the overall rating.

Sammy (9541) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 31, 2007
At the brewpub, one additional reason to go there. Bit of alcohol incredibly in the aroma. Yellow with a bit of foam. Bold taste with tartness, then honey and spices aftertaste.Honey offsets the dryness characteristic of this style. Aggressive carbonation.

bgburdman9 (859) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2007
On tap at the brewery. Fruity and citrusy in the aroma with a little funkiness but its very light. Pretty sweet but still pretty good overall. I thought this would be a little higher when i looked it up.

Ibrew2or3 (7473) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 1, 2007
6.5% ABV. On draft at brewery. It poured with a dark gold color with creamy white head. Nice fruity aroma of tart grapes and some sweet undercurrents. Flavor has a nice balance between several layers of sweet and tart grape fruitiness. Pretty darn smooth making it tough to discern flavor notes. I also detect mild spices floating around the flavor profile. Yet another good beer from Kuhnhenn.

hopscotch (10082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 25, 2006
Draft... Clear golden ale with a small, frothy, off-white head. Grainy, spicy aroma. Tart, tangy, spicy flavor. Medium-bodied with an astringent mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. Tangy, dry finish.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2006
Tap at the brewery on 10/14/06. Light hazy gold pour with a fizzy white head. Sweet be;gian yeast aroma with a mild sour character. Soft sourness in the flavor, strong sweet belgian like finish with bubblegum/bannana esters lingering on the palate. A slight grassy note. Medium thin body. Not a bad beer but a bit sweet for a Saison.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2004
Draught. Spicy (cinnamon and unknown herbs), licheny flavors. Clen, but too clean, and thin. Lingering very thin head. Fair to good. Kudos for the attempt.

ClarkVV (4218) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 5, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2006 2004 draught.
Fairly bright yellow, light rusty orange tints. Small disippating white head. Aroma is sharp of hops and yeast, has some light citrus. Slight dusty/musty notes. Flavor is dry, lightly sour and astringent. Some orange peel notes, light hops flavor (spicy and dry). No funk to this, and not enough malt, though there is a mild honey sweetness.
Growler, Nov 2006 consumed the same day as purchase
Immediately dissipating head fizzles quickly to nothing, leaving no lacing. Medium clarity in the hazy, marmalade-honey colored body.
Supremely yeasty nose, with white pepper phenols, dough, bread, a touch of banana and some very minimal fruitiness (cherry, apple, strawberry). Hops are very dry, not juicy or overly aromatic and remind most of dried grass and hay.
Extremely overattenuated in flavor, with tons of doughy yeast blandness. Light bitterness from the hops, low flavoring as well, just light herbs and grass. Meaty and musty, rather than crisp and snappy. Also very watery and low on flavor. Seems they could use more malt and/or more residual sweetness to get some more body as this is precariously thin. Recipe seems minimally modified from 2 years ago. Score is the same.
