MrChopin (3280) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 25, 2014
murky amber, thin white ring, wispy oily head. Very dusty nose, light manure and melon. Hay and playdoh palate mid, very dry, faint sulfur, lightly metallic and very watery, but if carbonation spikes higher would draw out esters even more.

En fût. Verre de dégustation directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Odeur de blé avec une pointe de pomme verte. Apparence: La couleur est orangée voilée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de céréale avec une pointe d’agrume et d’épices. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement minérale. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence d’agrume en arrière goût. (Rating #5251)

In short: A very smooth mildly rustic light Saison. Good session beer.
How: Tap at Three Penny taproom, Montpelier VT.
The look: Clear golden-amber body topped by a small beige head.
In long: The soft nose is pleasantly rustic & clean, like a breeze from a countryside field. Taste is more malty than expected for a 4% Saison. Oily toasted hay and biscuits, a bit of caramel, fruity flavor of juicy red apples, a mild citric acidity in the finish, an overall soft rustic character. Obviously this is a highly drinkable beer (d’uh, it’s a 4% Saison) and it is also very soft, low-intensity beer, only large sips can stimulate the taste buds. I liked this one but it is very very smooth, even for the session beer lover that I am. Also, drinking this beer raised an important question that needs to be answered, since we call a movie with regular cowboys a Western should we call a movie with space cowboys an Uptern?... please advise, I’m losing sleeping over this.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2013
On tap at Worthy Burger with Max, Andy, and Pearl. Pours a mostly clear amber with a thin white head. Very light musk a bit of wheat. Medium bodied, crisp, toast, light tang into a gentle bitter finish. Not a lot of musk like I would like, but still drinks very well.

Reynolds314 (2331) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Pretty average amber saison here. A bit spritzy and thin with little complexity. Toasty, crisp, and light fruity punch. Not bad.

PhillyCraft (3225) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Sample at Black Back, Murky reddish brown pour with medium whte head. Aroma was kind of wet, moldy, apples.Taste didnt follow the aroma, notes were more lagery or pale like then a saison. Mostly some florals, spice, and malt. Wasnt crazy about this.
