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 didn’t completely knock my socks off. Go C-Unit!

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

Salmoniform (989) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Poured from can to glass. Hazy straw with white head. Aroma is acidic, funky, yeasty, sugar, esters, citrus, lemongrass, pepper. Mouthfeel is really nice with a light body and high carbonation. Taste is sweet with a slight astringent finish and CO2 sharpness. Overall, this is a bit too yeasty but all in all alright.

Can picked up at Bier Thirty in Bown last week sometime... Enjoyed tonight after a long day on the clock... Pours a slight hazy glowing straw golden... short lasting white head leaves decent lacing in the wake. Aromas are pretty traditional Belgian spicy phenols and some expected lemongrass... some bready pale maltiness... Flavor pretty much mirrors the nose perfectly... perhaps a bit too much residual maltiness IMO, but it isn’t a deal breaker.. lemongrass/citrus zest lingers long on the finish. Body seems heavy for a 5% saison, but a good carbonation helps scrub the palate... pretty drinkable despite being a bit burpy. Good beer... Not sure I would buy it again, but it is always cool to find a saison in a can.

Partially cloudy straw colored beer with a fizzy white head that disappears quickly. Somewhat sweet nose of white sugar, lemon, and herbs. Taste is definitely sweet up front followed some citrus and sweeter fruits (mango?), topped off by a bit of spice. With perky carbonation, this is a refreshing beer and paired well with the spicy curry I was eating, but it’s not something I would drink on its own due to the unbalanced sweetness.

12oz can at Scion pours a hazy yellow with some wispy white head. Nose is lemony, herbal, a little sweet, coriander, lime. Flavor is better, lime, lemon, grass, parsley, yeast, a little passion fruit, some malt, a little papaya. Sweet, slick finish. Interesting. Luau beer.

Ferris (4968) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2013
Can - Lemongrass, coriander and funky sweet yeast. Hazy yellow, head that disappears quickly. Sweet lemon, pepper and yeast. Not very grassy or as subtle as I had hoped, also more sweet than anything else.

355ml can from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Cloudy orange like pineapple juice - or like a headless Belgian wit. Smells like one too - light citrus. Taste has that slightly sour taste but not much duration - like I’ve mixed Hoegaarden with Kölsch. It’s all a bit watery and lacking. Not my favourite style.
