poisoneddwarf (1707) - 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 (6207) - 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.

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.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JUL 16, 2013
6/6/13 notes: Can. Pours a beautiful medium gold with pillowy white head. Aroma is nicely spritzy, good peppery character, crushed granite, funk, nice lime citrus components. Palate is light, not as light as other saisons but dry and appropriate for the style. Flavor has breadiness, some passion fruit, ripe lemon. Surprisingly deep blend; fruit-sweet and rounder than most but it works very well. This is a great American saison.

spacecube (806) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2013
355ml can, pours a light hazy yellow orange, not a lot of head and low carbonation. Aroma of belgian farmhouse yeast with the coriander flavours, itís a basic saison, nice flavours, the lemongrass and hops do come through but mainly the aroma is the saison yeast. A good drink. Nice and refreshing.

Can thanks to bhensonb. Poured yellow with a white head. Aroma was lemon, wheat, and pepper. Flavor was pretty much the same as the nose with a nice dry finish and high carbonation.

Terminus (3231) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Can at hoppy monk el paso tx. Pours very hazy light orange with a very small fizzy white head. Nose is spicy lots of lemongrass gop and lite grassy hop notes. Very floral as well. Flavors are very tart grassy notes with quite a bit of floral hop notes. Body is crisp moderately carbonated and round. Very long finish of grass lightly bitter hops and some white grapes. This is very solid in the flavors however its not very nic looking. Good for this hot ep day though!
