Mazama Brewery, Draft: This was not my favorite beer of the night. I didnít like the cloudy pour, and I thought it might be a tad thick. The aroma was okay, but overall, I was left disappointed. Like I said, itís not a horrible beer, but I think they have other options that I would drink next time. Overall, this brewery has quality beer...a lot to choose from.

22 oz. bottle from Pacific Liquor. Pour is dark gold with a frothy white head that leaves lacing. Aroma is faint, of wheat and slight citrus. Has a refreshing taste, slightly sour, lively on the tongue with a very nice sweet/sour finish. A good session ale. Would repeat at this price.

22oz bottle from Bottleworks.

Pours yellow with a white head. Estery nose with some pepper and flavors that follow. Sourish (but not sour ale sour) ester bomb like Red Barn but even worse. Disappointing, though in part simply because this is my least favorite interpretation of the saison style.

BillKismet (3723) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 27, 2016
Bronzish-orange body topped by a lacey, silky white head. Yeasty, bready, estery, and phenolic nose with a strong dose of banana and a touch of clove. Again, lively esters on the pate. The taste of liquid yeast envelops the palate. Buzzy quality on the tongue. Some twangy sourness, wheat, and muted phenols.

jake65 (3236) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Bottle shared with my folks. Orange color, a bit cloudy after divying it up, topped with a thin sandy head. Mild aroma of Belgian yeast, spice, a little peppery. Tastes of spice and light fruity sweetness. Finishes dry and spicy, but mild. Easy drinker, paired well with lasagna.

Basic, funky, cracker and lemon. Not terribly exciting, but a decent saison. Nicer to look at than to drink.

Cloudy dark straw yellow. Nose of Belgian yeast esters, pepper. Taste follows. Fine but not my thing.

(Bottle) Just okay. Itís good because I like the style, but not a very stand-out saison.

willisread (1896) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 21, 2015
On tap at CBM Koenji. Pours a deep hazy orange with a fluffy white head. Aromas of banana, papaya, and yeast. Medium to medium-full body with average carbonation. Sweet on the palate with some pepper in the finish. Kind of heavy and not really refreshing for a saison. More of a blonde or Belgian style ale. Just OK.

KyotoLefty (8748) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 27, 2015
Tap at Marciero. Thick malt nose, spice, peaches, esters. Cloudy, deep golden orange, with lace. Very extery and fruity flavor, sweey, but not too muhc, also tangy and spicy. full body. A nice Belgian blonde, not really a saison.
