Can. Pours a hazy golden color with a smallish white head on there. Nose is fairly citrusy, with only small amounts of funk to it. Taste is slightly sour, yet light and fairly refreshing. Only issue is that I donít really get anything I would identify as lemongrass in there...

jgb9348 (5674) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2014
Clear golden coloured body with a one centimetre tall white head. Aroma of wheat, grass, hay, lemons, herbs, sage, funk and of course, pure lemongrass. Light-bodied; Herbal flavour with the lemongrass front and centre with a large yeast and bready note, some airy and floral hop notes with a very minimal malt backbone, making it light and airy, especially with all of the herbs. Aftertaste shows a dry, spicey character perhaps from the yeast that lends itself nicely to a warm day, but makes the beer refreshing. Overall, no sweetness at all, but that was to be expected - a hit of herbs and light floral spices and it shows nicely, especially when showcased as a saison. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Olive Tree Market Place in San Diego, California on 07-June-2013 for US$2.99 sampled at home in Washington on 24-April-2014.

Gription79 (2826) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Poured from a 12 ounce can. Pours a very clear yellow. The aroma is fruity, phenolic, sweet honey, slight mint. The flavor is fruity, grainy, very soft citrusy notes. Not bad. This is yeast driven and a refreshing beer.

Can, Cave, Glasgow. Hazy yellow pour with a middling white head. Lemony nose with vague spice. Sweetish flavour with more lemon plus some grass, yeast and spice notes. Dryish finish with a little tartness. Drinkable but nowt special.

kramer (5826) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Can. Pours a clear straw yellow body under a small fizzy white head that faded fairly quickly. The nose is pretty heavy on the lemongrass, with some wheat, perfume hops, and bready malt. Not much in the way of yeast or earthiness, guess if the name didnít tip me off, the aroma sure does. This isnít my kind of Saison. The flavor is pretty well dominated by the lemongrass as well. Itís just too clean and lacking in any interesting character from the yeast or malt. Just lots of clean bready malt and wheat with just a little hop flavor on the finish. A little to heavy and firm on the tongue with soft fizzy carbonation. Iíve had a lot worse, but itís just a crappy Saison.
