Gription79 (2157) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Poured from a 12 ounce can. Pours a very clear yellow. The aroma is fruity, phenolic, sweet honey, slight mint. The flavor is fruity, grainy, very soft citrusy notes. Not bad. This is yeast driven and a refreshing beer.

wyzzywyz22 (1881) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2014
Can, Cave, Glasgow. Hazy yellow pour with a middling white head. Lemony nose with vague spice. Sweetish flavour with more lemon plus some grass, yeast and spice notes. Dryish finish with a little tartness. Drinkable but nowt special.

kramer (4682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Can. Pours a clear straw yellow body under a small fizzy white head that faded fairly quickly. The nose is pretty heavy on the lemongrass, with some wheat, perfume hops, and bready malt. Not much in the way of yeast or earthiness, guess if the name didnít tip me off, the aroma sure does. This isnít my kind of Saison. The flavor is pretty well dominated by the lemongrass as well. Itís just too clean and lacking in any interesting character from the yeast or malt. Just lots of clean bready malt and wheat with just a little hop flavor on the finish. A little to heavy and firm on the tongue with soft fizzy carbonation. Iíve had a lot worse, but itís just a crappy Saison.

Aholmb1 (84) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Appearance: cloudy bright yellow color, nice white foamy head that is really dense Aroma: citrus, some funk, sour Taste: lemon, citrus, funkier smelling than it taste, sweetness, very appetizing Palette: bitter towards, lots of carbonation on tongue, very alive tasting Overall: the smell throws me off but the taste of this beer is quite nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

stefa (2) - Colorado, USA - JAN 16, 2014 does not count
aroma - has that good saison yeasty, doughy smell. not overly pungent. light banana, almost starfruit. color - hazy & sparkling blonde, very minimal head taste - lightly sweet, not bitter or sour (but subtle citrus/grassy) palate - light body, soft carbonation, creamy, finishes quick w/ lemongrass notes I enjoyed this beer - a solid saison, but interesting with the lemongrass notes. would certainly buy more, though it didnít completely knock my socks off. Go C-Unit!

airrick2003 (410) - Louisiana, USA - JAN 8, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2014 Appearance: beer pours a very hazy light yellow color, has lots of haze and chunks in it, head is tall but fluffy and shrinks fast Aroma: funky, lemon, bread, wild, very aromatic Taste: strong lemon, has a bit of wildness to it, some tart, slightly sour, also has a sweetness to it Palate: light body, high carbonation, minimal aftertaste Overall: this is a really good smelling and tasting beer, I like the low abv on a saison so you don’t get so much of the alcohol taste, you can smell this across the room ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
