Quevillon (2661) - Boisbriand, Quebec, - JUN 3, 2013
Drank from a bottle at the 20th Mondial de la BiŤre, 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.

nuplastikk (5071) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 26, 2015
12oz bottle. Not that impressive of an offering. Kind of has a classic brewhouse golden malt thing going on, not really incorporating the yeast that well. Doesnít come off sort or medium bodied to me, closer to full bodied yet underwhelming in flavor. US Saison all the way, not much finesse or similarities with a good Belgian example. Drinkable, but not so impressive.

bellco33 (481) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Poured from bottle into tulip: Pours golden with a foamy white head. Aroma of coriander, tons of banana, and sugar. Taste is really sweet banana with lots of pepper, and the same cracker malt base as all of their beer. Really gross combination. Bottle might be old, I canít imagine they intended it to be this sweet. Cloying, medium body, yuck

Finhead (1350) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2015
A cloudy, yellow pour with a frothy, white head. The aroma is earthy and slightly spicy with pepper. It has a medium body with slightly sticky texture and average carbonation. The taste is lightly bitter with hints of background sweetness and a dry finish.

RDeschain (11) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Itís the aroma that kills this brew for me. Best comparison I can draw is mild B.O. I think itís the pepper aroma combining with the hops that creates that unfortunate smell. Which is too bad, because otherwise itís not bad at all. Overall taste is pleasant, although the peppery finish is not my favorite. I found this brew works best when paired with a spicy food, as then the pepper works to compliment vs. detract. Itís not so bad that I wonít finish the sixer I bought, but I wonít be buying again. :(

commonmac (669) - 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 thatís welcomed as the sip progresses. A beer Jackie Chan would enjoy.

commonshawn (653) - 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 (92) - 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 (4042) - 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

Poured a very nice medium yellow with a very frothy head. Slight spice in the mouth is very nice.

On tap at the brewpub. Yellow/gold pour with an off-white head. Pleasantly mid saison with fruity taste ans aroma.
