Ferris (2006) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2013 Bottle - Orange and Belgian yeast. Clear gold with a rich white head. Very yeasty as I would expect from a Belgian but a bit bland for saison. Second tasting - as above but lots of honey notes.

DrSilverworm (5024) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2013
22oz bottle, shared by DanielCoor. Clear golden, slightly orange color. Thin off-white head. Couple loose dots of lace. Nice lightly citrusy hoppy flavor, light belgian candy sugar. Bigger body. Light carbonation, lightly dry finish. Moderately zesty, light sweet, light bitter taste, not bad. Solid Belgian Strong

phaleslu (5867) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2013
22 oz. bottle shared by Danny- thanks again! Pours a clear gold color with a white ring for a head. Notes of sweet malts, crackers, straw, apricot, and honey. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel. Reminds me more of a tripel than a saison, or at least the take on the style I really like.

Bomber to snifter (thanks to whoever shared this one). Looks good for the style; a transparent orange with white head that dissipates into lacing fairly quickly. Smells doughy, yeasty, and spicy with a bit of citrus. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Solid beer.

My bottle [650ml] shared with HogTownHarry, jerc & mabel. Pours a hazy gold with little floaties and an average size lasting frothy white head. Aroma: I love it! Belgian yeast, herbs, light hops, spices and fruit. Flavour’s just as good: Dry, spicy, yeasty and fruity along with herbs and a hint of spice. Medium bodied. A great Saison!

jercraigs (7348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2013
2012-01-18. Crisp dark yellow with a small white head. 3+ Moderately alcoholic, lightly yeasty, Saison aroma, lightly funky, more nuanced than I am grasping at this point I suspect. 7++ Flavour is quite pleasant, dry but sort of fruity, modest yeasty funk, moderate bitterness throughout. 7++ Smooth average body. Dangerously drinkable, the alcohol is surprisingly restrained. Very nice. Bottle shared by Blankboy

gramity (1301) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 29, 2012
Hazy golden orange with a large foamy head which disipates quickly. Fruity esters dominate the aroma, spices and herbs create a complex citrusy, yeasty Belgian flavor, medium bodied with high carbonation. This beer just kept tasting better and better, I should have gotten two!

Awesome in a bottle. Drink one; drink two! A beer to celebrate the day with. Spruce, citrus, herbs, floral. Looks like the best beer in the world.

Gerbeer (1491) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 18, 2012
650 ml bottle. Pours a light gold with medium persistent head. Aromas of lemons and yeast. Flavors of lemons and white pepper with light floral/grassy notes. Mild and crisp for this style of saison but very nice.
