Can shared with Ashton McCobb. Properly enjoyed this in the Edinburgh sunshine! Perfect beer for it. Pours cloudy, no bad thing for the style. Floral aroma with bread and hay. Lots of pineapple mixed when the taste comes, along with Belgian yeasty notes. Something wheat-beer about it. Surprised it’s not a bigger beer. Finishes very dry, which was perfect.

Pours a light piss color with no head. Light aroma of funk no real lemongrass. Flavor is a bit of funk up front then a bit of lemongrass. Nice and refreshing.

Disappointing saison from Maui. No lemongrass, pretty standard saison without any standout characteristics. drinkable but forgettable.

Suttree (5879) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Thanks to my Secret Santa for this one. Murky yellow, thin ring of foam. Bready and toasty aromas at first, then nice tropical notes. Lots of citrus in the flavor, too. Mango, grapefruit, lots of juicy flavors. Some light funky notes in the finish.

Coriander and honey notes in the aroma. Light yellow with effervescent carbonation but a small white head. More coriander and honey in the taste with lemony sweet and sour all over. A little too sweet for my taste in a Saison, but still a good light summer beer.

Clear golden pour with a big white head. Aromas of cracker, grass, and bread. Some peppery spice, yeast, and a touch of lemongrass and citrus. The flavor is a bit dry and lightly tart. Lemongrass, cracker, grass, and yeast. Some pepper, citrus peel, and bread.

beerbastard (841) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 23, 2013
12oz can,pours a pale straw color. Effervescent at first with a head that quickly retreats. Mild lemon and grapefruit aromas. Laided back sweetness mixed with smooth tart lemons. Easy drinking. Not quite what I think a Saison should be. Needs more dryness and less sweetness. Still its very enjoyable.

Danyel (1606) - Colorado, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Can. Pours hazy yellow with minimal white head. Smells like eggs...cloves, spicy eggs. Tastes crisp, citrus, eggs, yes- eggs...hmmm. Interesting.

Wittales (760) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Appearance was cloudy yellowish gold with fizzy creamy white diminishing 1/2 head, no lacing. Aromas are soft lemons, sweet pils malt, wheaty funky yeasts, touch of honey and spices. Taste are sweet malts, lemongrass, melon, orange, white grapes and pepper. Palate was soft tiny CO2 with light body, winey citrusy lasting smooth finish. A beautiful Saison with a nice mix of hops.
