commonmac (306) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Tap pour at Butcher and the Boar. Tulip glass with a light golden color and quality lacing. Hoppy, fresh taste but unfortunately a less impressive aftertaste. Maybe a criticism of the style more so than the beer but this one leaves something on the table. Good, not great.

zizzybalubba (1409) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 10, 2013
On tap at the brewery in Ft. Collins, CO. Yellowish-orange pour with a short off-white head. Distinct aroma of ripe banana and clove. The taste is more bubblegum than banana with faint tropical fruits and spices. The bitterness from the hops lingers longer than most saisons. A nice beer.
