2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 didnít completely knock my socks off.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 isnít 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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 itís not something I would drink on its own due to the unbalanced sweetness.
