DuffMan (7025) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 8, 2013
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 isnít showcasing much yeast character, I donít care that it may not fit the purists definition of a Saison-- I freaking loved it!

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 at blind tiger, the beer had a hazy, lemon-straw yellow color, reasonable head. nice citrus/orange note in the aroma. there was a kind of bitter orange peel taste mixing with hop bitterness. an interesting american take on the style, very good.

Palme (3546) - 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. Itís 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 NÝgne ō saison as itís quite powerful, kinda perfumy and mighty. Really enjoyable and fantastically delicious! 12.06.2013

HeistAlmighty (1146) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 30, 2013
150ml draft. Lest spice and hops than the Collaboration 2, but more yeast and fruitiness come through. Sweet grapefruit, lemon and banana. Overall, very drinkable and summery.

boto (1890) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Draught @ Brewery: This one pours a hazy, yellow golden color. There was a bit of a white head on it. The aroma is nice. Floral, citrus, hint of spices, earthy: a lot going on there. The taste is good. Floral, grassy, citrus, spice, earthy. A bit lighter and a touch dry to the finish. Very Nice!

jredmond (5616) - Manhattan, 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.
