Can from Total Wine in Sac. Aroma and flavor is more Meyer lemon than lemongrass, but whatever. Good carbonation and palate to this one, like a crisp, malty (low sugar) lemonade. This one isn't typical of saisons, as it's more lemon-fruit beer than saison, but I loved it for what it was. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Pours with a clear golden yellow hue with a large amount of carbonation and a foamy white head. Good retention, medium lace. Aromas show a big CO2 bite, but following that there are grassy and citrusy qualities, Nelson, rustic phenols, peppery, a bit earthy, and a very dry funk. Gooseberry, light bready/wheaty malt. Flavors are a touch tart, a nice smooth and biscuty malty quality. Some citrus. Really light bitterness, mildly tropical, grassy. Pretty easy to drink. I might have to pick up a full six pack of this. Lightly spicy. Fuller carbonation, medium dry finish with a low body.

Can in a hotel before FWIBF. Hazy piss yellow with big white head. Aroma is grassy, citrus and some belgian notes with coriander. The lemon is more apparent right up front but quickly fades. More of a lemon peel thing going on. Easy to drink. Refreshing to a degree but not my favorite for the style.

Looks like lemon aide. The lemongrass is not upfront but present enough. Slightly milky finish.

Pale gold, hazy, white head. Aroma of dry, cracker like malt, herbal spice and lemon. Flavor: grainy malt, spicy herbal notes, lemons, a light grassy note, citrusy hops, some spicy wheat character. Refreshing and interesting beer.

rick_91709 (155) - USA - JUN 1, 2013
Poured from a can. Pale, cloudy yellow. Head dissipated quickly. Smells like sour fruit. Tastes like it smells. Not my favorite, although it goes down much better with a spicy burrito than by itself. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

10 karat pour with a sizable ivory crown. Lemon zest, evergreen, wet lawn mower, wheat, honey, and sour tart unripened berries. Unique and enjoyable!

12oz can provided by bhensonb. Pours cloudy yellow with a rocky white head and a sour fruity aroma. There is a very yeasty wheat and lemon flavor, slightly sour with a very hoppy citrus finish. This is an interesting version of saison.
