Pouring at The Festival in Portland with Kramer, Andrew, and J-Dadmond. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Big musk, citrus, and light lemon. Citrus and musk, faint tropical fruit. Big musk and funk. Long citrus into the finish. Awesome.

On tap @ the brewery. Bright yellow, hazy; zesty fresh tropical fruit and citrus, moderate vegetal bitterness in the finish, crisp carbonation, minerally even, very bright and highly drinkable. They called this an American Saison, and even though it isn’t showcasing much yeast character, I don’t care that it may not fit the purists definition of a Saison-- I freaking loved it!

jredmond (7402) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Draft at the brewery with Andrew. Pours a bright peach juice body with white lacing. Aroma is peppery, yeast and grass. Mouthfeel is crisp with notes of grass and pepper upfront; backing notes of light citrus, lemon zest, and yeast. Nice and bitter.

JulienHuxley (5578) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 24, 2013
From tap at the Festival. Rather murky pour with white head. Citric aroma, lots of herbs, saison yeast character is pretty clear cut. Flavor is quite citric, a bit too hoppy, too yeasty. Well attenuated and dry palate, low-med carb. Good, but not quite up to level with their other stuff.

Tap at brewery. Pours hazy gold with creamy white head. Aroma is light fruit, floral notes, cereal and rye malts, and light bubblegum. Flavor is dry malts and grassy notes for with some light citrus esters and faint toast; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

snoworsummer (4532) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Pours opaque yellow with almost no head. Tastes like lemon and apricot. Dry feel. Smooth light body and low carbonation. Smells like lemon rind, wheat, and musk.

Palme (4065) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2013
On tap @ Blind Tiger House. A really cloudy kinda yellow-golden one with a small quickly sidesticking white top. Not to extreme on the nose, but the saison yeast is shining in through as is traces relate, grapefruit grapefruit zest and lots of ripe sweet organic banana. Never mind the non extreme, cause after a while in the glass the aroma just explodes. Getting really quite unique and the aroma intensifies after a while in the glass when it has some temperature. It’s light oily on the mouthfeel and it has some big bubbled carbonation bubbles. Orange zest, wet grass,candy sweetness and lots of saison yeast. In a way it reminds me of a Nøgne Ø saison as it’s quite powerful, kinda perfumy and mighty. Really enjoyable and fantastically delicious! 12.06.2013

Lukaduke (2968) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAR 26, 2016
From notes sampled at the Festival in Portland. Pours a straw colored haze with a finger of white foam. Nose is peppery yeast and a bit of grain and a weird grassy note. Palate is a bit lifeless and under attenuated. Backend sweetness and too much earth yeast character. Meh.
