Bottle, from Central Bottle, wine & Provision. Cambridge MA. Ok aroma, tart, yeasty funky. Cranberry, duh, mild yeasty funk. Tad reddish, brownish, orange color, ok head and lace, tart flavor. Lighter body, thin smooth mouthfeel, tart finish. Itís ok. Not gonna wow anyone here, but interesting enough for a try.

Crazy aromatic...cranberry and strong floral influences. Dry and clean on the palate with nice length on the finish. Not the biggest fan of the saisons but this one was interesting...almost drinks like a sparkling wine because of the fruitiness and floral notes along with the noticeable carbonation.

750ml corked bottle in a tulip. Pours amber/ruby with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of light spices and light fruits, some pale malts, a little bit of bitterness, and some cranberries. Flavor the same with the perfect amount of cranberries. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

Bottle shared by Jim, thanks! Pours a hazy peach with a hint of redness. and a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a decent amount of cranberries with a musty Belgian yeast and a grain backbone. Flavor has more of a floral note with some underlying sweet grains and a hint of cranberry.

a bottle cracked open on a late summer evening. Yellow color with just some redding cranberry hints. Aroma and taste was some of the spiciest saison I have ever had. Spice over some grass and hay with just a little tart from the berries giving a good accent in the end. Bottle conditioned fine carbination. One of the better saisons I have had. And this is one of my less fav styles.

I think they forgot to put the cranberries in as I get absolutely none in the flavor or aroma. Tastes like a malty saison with a thin fizzy mouthfeel.

Smells like potpourri. Floral nose with a touch of fruit. Slightly medicinal. Very floral and dry. No fruit flavor. Very heavy potpourri

Poured into a "worthy glass" brandy snifter type from on tap at worthy burger. Poured with an eighth inch head that quickly disappeared. Typical saison aroma with cranberry and ammonia present as well. Golden yellow cloudy. Cranberry is subdued and refreshing. Sweet but not overly so. Hops are inerceptable. Mouthfeel like flatter sprite. Overall a refreshing summer beer but not quite easy enough to be a sesssion beer.

Draft @ Sunset Grill and tap. Light pale gold color, thin cap of white head. Nose is grains, dough and citrus. Flavors reminiscent of crackers, musty yeast with lots of citrus in the finish. No problems with this brew but it feels like itís missing something. Kind of bland.
