jamestulloch (1587) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle from Deeside Drinks Emporium. Hazy golden body with a thin white head. Steady carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of lemon, earth, coriander and peach. Soft flavour of pear, blood orange and yeast. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. Tastes like a cross between a Belgian Witbier and a Saison.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Hazy yellow pour with a decent white head. Light grass and hay in the nose. A pleasant touch of yeast on the palate with some light cracker notes. Grass and lemon finish. No Dupont, but quite nice.

Saison aroma. Small white head. Hazy yellow. Yeasty, lemony, not dry enough to be perfect.

jookos (2638) - FINLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle. Yellow, hazy, well carbonated. Citrusy, light coriander, hayish pale malty nose. Belgy yeastyness, very typical saison aroma. Smooth medium full body, refreshing, flavourful nice. This is a really clean, nice, text-book saison. Can’t find anything bad about it, except that it’s almost too textbooky.

reebtogi (4396) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 22, 2014
500ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is fruity and yeasty with some citrus. Taste is a fruity and malty sweetness with a light earthy and yeasty finish. Light to medium body with good carbonation. A decent saison, but not quite up their with the best of the style.

HipHopOpotamus (233) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2014
Little bit light in the taste but still good, a session drinking Saison, nice on a warm evening.

On tap @ Albion NYC. Pours fairly clear yellow gold, small but lively head @ carbo. Aroma is bready, lots of pear & lemon, wheat, vague yeast. Flavor is similar, crispy zesty saison.. clean & drinkable.
