On Tap at Avenue Pub in New Orleans. Poured hazy in an American Pint glass. Smells a tad peppery and bready. Tastes mellow for a Saison and yeasty with not much funk. Medium carbonation makes this beer and easy drinker.

TheAlum (5833) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Draft on tap at the brewery (New Orleans, LA). Pours a deeper darker well hazed amber hue, a bit of old gold with frothy offwhite head atop, firmer layer sticks atop and laces well enough. Aromas are fruity and a bit spicy, nice Belgian yeast bite with some apple, pear and gentle banana wafting in. Cereal grains, fruit, spice, bread dough. Gentle vanilla, fresh harvested apples, and touches of citrus meet that spiciness. Initial is fruity, a lighter end of medium body with gentle with apple, banana, gentle cool vanilla and clove. Some bread dough, faint bubblegum and yeastiness. Cool, a bit sweet and grainy. Some more fruit, that bubblegum bite into the middle. Gentle spice, dryness, a bit of earth hits the backend. Some applesauce, banana still linger out with that gentle spice, flaked wheat and bready malts. A bit dry, spicy as we finish and lingering on. Solid, a bit sweeter than I enjoy.

ronaldtheriot (1288) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - SEP 30, 2012
On tap at Irish House in New Orleans, Louisiana- NOLA Hurricane Saison has a thick, fluffy, slightly off-white head and a hazy, golden appearance, with lost of thick lacing left on the glass. The aroma is very much of green grass or a freshly-mowed lawn (St. Augustine grass). There is some sweetness and malt as well. Taste is of green grass, sweet & resiny hops, sugar, candy and loveliness. Mouthfeel is medium, and NOLA Hurricane Saison finishes semi-dry, clean, and smooth. Overall, this is a wonderful draft beer. A must-try! RJT

Svesse (6175) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 22, 2011
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, 11 Aug 2011) Hazy amber colour with rocky, off-white head. Malty, spicy nose with grass, hay, herbs and slightly earthy hops. Fruity, slightly tart taste with notes of citrus, tropical fruit, grass and a generous, spicy bitterness in the finish. Dry, refreshing and slightly tart. More than medium body. Didn’t really expect that from Louisiana, but this is quite an excellent little saison. Very nice.
