Bottle @ home shared with myself sent from booston from Lushawn917. Thanks! 375 mL bottle. Pours a milky dull golden yellow appearance with a big foamy, cream colored head. Lemon, spicy yeasty, light pepper, mild barnyard, dry pils malty, bready aroma. Just a bit tart with a fair amount grassy/herbal hops in the flavor along with slightly spicy yeasty, light grain, a bit juicy flavor. Delightfully dry with pretty potent hops. Very reminiscent of old world Saisons. Thank you Dr. Shitheaddddddd!!!

SlackerMads (1259) - DENMARK - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle. Hazy yellow with a large creamy white head. Floral, spicy saaz, white bread crust, straw, lime, fruit esters. Feels pretty light and soft, soft/medium carbonation, oily/creamy mouthfeel. Has some bitterness in the mid-taste, but the finish is pretty soft. High drinkability and fine balance.

BeerGolem (620) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2013
Bottle 375 ml. Bought at Redstone (Stoneham, MA). Pours hazy golden with medium creamy white head. Slight particles. Commercial description fits fairly well to describ this one. Strong presence of pilsner malt (too much for my taste), but it comes along with citrus, spices and lavender. I’ve sen better saison, but this one certainly worths a try.

Prominent Saaz hopping, which is not my top but up front flavour. Thanks for sharing, Americo.

harrymel (1450) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Batch 6 Pours cloudy light yellow with a solid sheet of bone white bubs. Smells of grain, clay yeast, some floral notes and a good hay/squash/butter combo. Flavor is all about this awesome yeast: bread, lemon rind, grass, cornmeal, really nice flavor that is simple, but carries some nuances I just can’t articulate. Medium bodied with moderately hi carb and a semi dry finish. Nice beer. I really dig it.

Concealer (651) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a fizzy, clean white head. Aromas of citrus, grain, yeast, light funk, and spice. Flavor is sweet citrus, yeast, spice, pine, light bitter end. Light, dry and crisp. I like the balance between sweet and bitter.

brokensail (9959) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 20, 2013
On tap @ GABF. Hazy golden pour with a white head. Lemon peel, herbal hops, and lots of pepper. Cracker and bread malt aromas, some grass, and a touch of orange. Nice dry, peppery flavor. Subtle citrus tartness, lemon peel, and orange zest. Bread, cracker, and a touch of grass. Solid all around.
