Quevillon (2644) - Boisbriand, Quebec, - JUN 3, 2013
Drank from a bottle at the 20th Mondial de la Bière, June 1, 2013. Pale blonde, thin head. Aroma of spicy wheat and barley, slightly sweet. Taste very dry wheat, a little spicy, slightly bitter. This is not the king of savory saison.

commonmac (634) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Bottle purchased at Haskells in Maple Grove and consumed with commonshawn. Golden pour with hints of orange. Full finger of white head. Effervescence in full force. Aroma of grains very much like a brewery with less spice than expected of the style. Taste has the strong yeast characteristics many folks love in saison. Relatively balanced representation with malts offsetting a bitter streak that runs through. Some fruity citrus flavors that’s welcomed as the sip progresses. A beer Jackie Chan would enjoy.

commonshawn (633) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Bottle from Haskells with commonmac. Hazy gold with white head. Smells like a brewery. Taste is yeasty and grainy with too subtle spice and floral citrus taste. Good body but wanted more bite crispness and flavor to balance the yeast funk. Almost there.

mp_lane (91) - Indiana, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Pours hazy yellow with thin white head. Aroma is mild fruit and spice. Taste is rich, malty with the right amount of spice and bitterness. I like this saison a lot.

Cavie (4012) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAY 27, 2015
Tap at WoB. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a white head. Aroma is almost a sweet bread, paint chips. Odd flavor, chalky mouthfeel. That same paint flavor is there with a slight bit of saison funkiness. Finished bitter. Not good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

legion242 (2332) - Richardson, Texas, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Poured a very nice medium yellow with a very frothy head. Slight spice in the mouth is very nice.

slaws1230 (7) - - MAY 2, 2015 does not count
Lighter with a slight spice. Taste of yeast, it is also present in the bottle. Overall not a bad introduction to saison

On tap. Comes a cloudy pale gold with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, fruit, and spice. Taste is apple, lemon, banana, spice, and a bit of funk. Pretty good.
