12oz can poured into glass. While on a recent trip to CO I must have consumed 15 different saisons, or least it feels that way. By this point I was saisoned out and this one just sort of fell by the waste side. I couldnít take any more.

Ernest (6354) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Can. Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is murky greenish-yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, corn starch), lightly hoppy (herbs), with a strong note of lemon-lime juice, other notes of urine, cheese, and dish rag. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Wow, this is absolutely AWFUL. Smells like Sprite with some off notes added. Sour soda-pop fizziness in the mouth, with a rather dirty aftertaste. And one of the worst appearances on a beer Iíve seen in quite a while...fizzy head instantly disappears, leaving behind a muddy weirdly-colored liquid. An embarrassing drain pour for this struggling brewery.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUL 21, 2013
12oz can. Rating #48. Hazy yellow pour with a big fluffy white head. Nice lemon aroma and a little light grass. Lightly sweet with more lemon and a little acidic, pretty good though. (2843)

Scopey (7444) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
Can. It pours cloudy pale gold with a small white head. The nose is fresh orange, tangerine, grapefruit, wheat, dough, earth and spice. The taste is clean, wheat, orange, light spice, earth, light toast, lemongrass, pear and melon with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth, tasty and easy drinking. Pretty nice.

poisoneddwarf (1767) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JUL 19, 2013
12 oz can; canned 5/14/13--a couple months old. Pours hazy yellow with a medium white head with good retention. Aroma consists of dough, rubber, herbal notes. Taste is sweet, lightly tart, earthy and biscuity, finishing with a lemony and slightly bitter flavor. Not too shabby, even with that rubbery off-note.

lusikka (6559) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2013
355 ml can.
Pours a cloudy bright pale yellow colour with a foamy head. Aroma of citrus, grass and some biscuit notes. Flavour is quite messy with citrus, yeast, rubber, cooked vegetables, grass and some spiciness. Light bodied, thin mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Finishes sweet and yeasty with the same vegetable off-flavours as on the flavour. Doesnít feel fresh and isnít very enjoyable.

Canned, milky cloudy yellow with white foam, aroma of lemon Thai, flavor of a lemon grass wheat ale, finish is mild chewy lemon

Pours (from a can into a tulip) cloudy pale yellow. Almost no lacing. Light aroma of hay and lemon. This is very light on the palate, and hugely refreshing, with a taste of yeasty, grassy pineapple. Tons of hoppy bitterness in the finish. Perfect on a hot summerís day - interesting without being too demanding.

Trade from Garry as an extra. Thanks. Had this right after my first homebrew, which also happened to be a light saison. Can to tall tulip. Pours a cloudy hazy light yellow with a quickly receding one finger head. Crisp yet funky aroma with some peppery spice and slight citrus (lemon?). Flavor is light wheat, some crisp lemon, pineapple, and definite yeasty funk. Effervescent and refreshing for the summertime. Not bad at all. I could see drinking this in Maui for sure.
