On tap at New Holland Brewery. Pours cloudy gold. Nose is big barnyard some pepper. Palate is same barnyard upfront along with bread, hay, banana and a fantastic balancing bitterness in the end. A great saison overall a must try even better straight from the taps at the brewery!

mansquito (3255) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 30, 2014
The Sampler, Brooklyn bottle: Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is lemony citrus and spice. Not so much in the way of funk, barnhouse, farmhouse type smells. Taste is similarly lemony and spice. Not very sweet. Light bodied and easy drinking. Not bad, but I prefer my saisons to be funkier.

ROBC3366 (515) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Pours a dark golden with a nice bubble stream that provides a medium white head that leaves some nice lacing. Nose is of fruits and spices, pretty much what I expect from a nice saison. Taste is fruity and lightly tart, dry and quenching. Body is medium, carbonation too. Overall a nice saison, I would have want a second pour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SlovakSniper (3013) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Mondial 2014. Oeil: blonde avec une tête assez respectable. Arômes, fruits, oranges, agrumes et fruits du verger, épices en filigrane. Saveurs: fruits légèrement acidulés, poivre, épices, douceur. Impression en bouche: corps et texture qui peuvent faire le style. Arrière-goût: plutôt doux et épicé. Conclusion: facile à boire.

Light saison. Citrus takes over from the light floral yeast. Pours orange with good head and lacing. Finishes with light sweetness. Good balance, good hoppy head and lacing, golden clear pour. Tap at Summerfest DC.

bottle - Pours a cloudy straw color with a one finger lasting white head. It has a yeasty, citrusy, spicy aroma. It’s sweet, yeasty, and tart with a pleasant spice character. Good saison.

As far as saisons go this is pretty good. Coming from a person who doesn’t like saisons.... This is a pretty good saison.
