Nate (3806) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2012
From bottle. Nice funky aroma, bit of sulfur with some citrus and yeasty notes. Carbonic gaseousness and slight bubblegum. Cloudy golden amber with while rocky-frothy lacing head. Medium body with vigorous carbonation. Starts medium dry with wheat and light yeast astringency. Bubblegum, coriander, and honey. Sweet finish with mild chalky after. Nice saison.

monk191 (1201) - California, USA - MAR 27, 2015
A nice saison overall. Pours a slightly cloudy, bubbly orange with a white head. Smells of herbs and orange. Taste is very bright and champagney, with lots of herbs and spice. Had in the bottle.

fraternie (880) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Belgian yeast aromas, medium-bodied palate of floral/tropical citrus, notes of bread and pineapple fruit but this really thins out as it lingers on a stale note. All yeast, abv covered well though.

Mateus_Vidigal (1) - - MAR 17, 2015 does not count
Bonita aparência: âmbar - próxima a um alaranjado - brilhante, suavemente turva, com espuma branca de boa formação e média duração. Aromas frutados, lembrando damasco e pêssego, com especiarias, leve percepção cítrica - algo como laranja madura. Na boca, a carbonatação é média, com corpo médio/baixo, textura macia. Segue a mesma linha do aroma, mesma intensidade. Boa presença de lúpulos, que ajudam a equilibrar o dulçor que também marca presença nessa cerveja. Final é levemente amargo e picante, com resquícios de fermento e um sabor adocicado. Álcool bem inserido, cerveja refrescante e bastante agradável. Tem seu valor, mas não surpreende.

Changed (369) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAR 15, 2015
12oz bottle, pours pretty pale yellow, fluffy white head. Aroma is wheat, bread, banana, some sour funk. Taste is saison wheat, a smallish amount of sour, and orange peel. Decently carbonated, and imminently drinkable. A really good Belgian style saison from NC.

ljthiessen (600) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 15, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy golden pour with a thin white head. Pretty solid saison aroma and flavour - a little tart and nice citrus, Belgian yeast. Nothing incredible, but nicely done.

danielyabu (1339) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - MAR 2, 2015
average frothy white head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. clear thick golden body. aroma: light hoppy, apple, pear, white wine, alcohol. if: moderate sweet light bitter. ff: light sweet moderate bitter; long duration. palate: light medium bodyk watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic moderate alcoholic finish. Delicioso aroma campestre, típico das boas Saison. Sabor muito semelhante ao de um vinho branco. Faz também parte do sabor a tradicional presença campestre de maçã. Percebe-se bastante o álcool no paladar, sem prejudicar nenhuma nuance, no entanto. O amargor escalante, semelhante ao de casca de frutas, torna-se destoante do conjunto no final do gole, ficando um pouco desagradável e surgindo como defeito.130 s

dambor (110) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 21, 2015
Pours gold with medium head. Aroma: ctirus fruit elements (orange, lemon), "horse blanket", herbs and spices (coriander?). Taste: citrus fruits and herbs, followed by a pretty dry finish. The body is medium, as well as the carbonation. It is drinkable and refreshing, I would not say it has 7,9% ABV.
