Can generously shared by kiefdog. Cheers, Kevin! Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is some sweet malt, some light apple, some yeast, a big lemon, citrus, and lemongrass presence. Flavor is similar: it has the sweet malt, it has the peppery yeast, but it delivers on its lemongrass promise, which is nice. I would get to know this beer well if it was available near me.

12 oz can from the Liquor Kabinet. Pretty pale straw color with a small fizzy white head. The aroma and flavor is lemongrass, wheat malts, citrus fruit, and light hops. Pretty light body with a nice crisp feel and a refreshing finish. Easy to drink and pretty tasty.

Elwood (3009) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. can from State Line Liquors. It pours a pale yellow with a frothy white head. Short head retention. Sulfur notes in the nose. Very light flavor wise and too sweet for the style. Light lemon and lemongrass notes, but overall lacking character. Light body with average carbonation. Substandard for the style.

Can from Coppers, Newcastle. This is a cloudy pale yellow beer with a rapidly disappearing white foamy head. It has sweet lemon and lemongrass flavours, vanilla notes and a spicy fruity finish.

MannyGoldberg (160) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2013
Can at Stormbird- 4th September 2013. Saw this was a Lost Abbey collab and should have remembered that such beers rarely provide much of interest. Pale straw yellow with zero head or retention. Looks more like a pilsner than a saison. Not getting loads of lemongrass on the nose but plenty of yeast. Taste is lemongrass and peanut. Not as dry as I'd expect. Kind of refreshing but way off the pace compared to the better saisons out there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brouwerij (914) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Can. Finally got around to trying this since it is on sale. Pours an ever so slightly hazy yellow, gold with rapidly settling white head, no lacing. Aroma is sweet, yeasty, fruity, floral and vegetal. Flavor is sweet peach, passionfruit, sweet with a mild malt, slightly herbal finish. Sweet, juicy, and fruity. Soft carbonation, juicy texture. A strange beer, a mess of flavors, though not as bad as expected.
