arminjewell (9262) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Pour on tap at Churchkey DC, hazy yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of saffron, big and bold in there, slight fruity notes, hints of biscuit, bread, slight grass, pine notes in there as well with a hint of orange peel. Taste is a mix of big spicy saffron, slight grass, biscuit and bread, hints of other spice, yeast, touch of fruit, finishing fairly sweet, dry.

RABinCO (1508) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Drafy sample at ChurchKey. Bread, hay, floral, grass, herbs, barnyard, earthy. Saffron is very overpowering in both taste and aroma. Makes it a bit perfumy.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Tap at ck thanks to abbey. Low haze golden pour. Weak foam. Nose is bright pear, sweet cider, something a tad sticky that is off, some floral notes. Taste is thin, refreshing, dry cider like. Abv and body are low, acid level neutral. Almost like a table beer. Just quite plain flavor wise. Palate is too watery.

gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Nice saison that had a bit of a darker color i think due to the saffron. It was a bit earthier than floral but still had a good bit of grass and wild yeast esters to it. Good one.

TearsforBeers (183) - Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2013
Aroma is unusual a lovely saffron smell that I’ve never encountered in anything else appearance is an unclear Whiteley hazy yellow with a relatively high amount of carbonation. The flavor is complex and beguiling truly this is a beer a distinction.

Draft at Churchkey with Zahra. Pours a light amber body with thin white lacing. Aroma is lemon, grain and yeast. Mouthfeel is light and thin with notes of lemons, grain, cereal, citrus, faint funk and yeast. Okay saison, but a bit plain overall.
