Till the earth, tip the bottle. With the new season comes a new saison - complex and fruity, with a semi-dry finish.

Overripe lemon and pear. Cloudy amber, thick head. Lemon and funk, musty pear finish, vegetal. Medium body, moderate carbonation. I misread the label expecting it to be an American wheat. Clearly, it is a saison.

Bottle. Cloudy, gold color. Really huge head. I can see why this is called "Hay Fever". That’s what it smells and tastes like.....hay.

11.5oz bottle. Hazy unfiltered golden tan body. Mellow sweet corn-wheat aroma. Creamy, bigger side of medium bodied. Some deep saison yeast notes, from banana to phenolic high temp. A pinch closer than a lot of stateside Saisons, but still has a little but of a harsh, unrefined feel. The wheat does flesh it out some, but at the end of the day it still comes off as not quite there. Has a little bit of depth and subtlety, which is more than most "Saisons" can say.

11.5 oz. looks like it was bottled in 02, 2014. Pours a foggy golden-amber with a lasting spit of bubbles. Nose is white grape, honey, wheat and pungent cheese. Flavors of white grape must, honey, tropical bubblegum and a squeeze of lemon are finished off with some bitterish wheat flour and funky yeast. Nice balance in the medium body makes for a fairly easy warm weather quaff. Medium-high carbonation is not what I prefer, but fits the style I suppose.

Suttree (5266) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Murky gold, big, loose white head. Smells tangy and citrusy, with grassy notes in the background. Taste is pretty sweet - A little sweeter than I prefer, to be honest. Some flowery and perfumey notes, too. Some subtle funky and woody flavors, as well.

Cloudy straw. Aroma is yeasty...is that the Thiriez yeast I smell everywhere these days? Touch of grapefruit/lemon citrusy hop, dash of tropical esters, hint of pale malt.

340ml bottle. Hazed pour. This one is very zesty and bitter, grassy, herbal nice spring saison.

Bottle at West Coast Brew Fest 2014. Pours dishwater gold. Earthy, celery aroma. Med body or nearly. Flavor is earthy, citrus, and ? Finishes mildly farmhouse. Excellent.

Cloud and golden, ring if head remains. Smells of melon and grainy and yeasty. Medium body, medium high carbonation, slightly dry finish. Tastes fruity and sour, slightly pear-like, some straw flavours. Doesn't taste very yeasty (like the smell) fairly pleasant and well balanced. I really like this style and this beer is ver tasty in my mind.

vadie (802) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 2, 2014
Jaune brumeux avec une petite mousse blanche. L’arôme légèrement fruité avec du levure et du blé. Le goût est plutôt comme une heffewizen qu’un saison. Un peu fruité, un peu du blé.
