The beer is a pale golden yellow color. Fairly cloudy. The head is good sized and white, lots of fine bubbles. The aroma has a nice bright, fresh malt character with a pleasant earthy saison yeast. It’s fairly floral. Actually a bit much for me. It’s verging on medicinal territory, between the sweet grain and the flowery, perfumey note. There seems to be a peppery flavor in the mix, but it’s a bit buried. The taste starts out with a dose of pale malt sweetness. The medicinal perfume/flower flavor comes in fairly strong. Also a bit more from the spice. Dries out well in the finish. Medium bitter for the style. A bit of lingering sweetness. Light mouthfeel with some slickness in the finish. I would like to try this beer without the chamomile addition.

Ticked at Ale Arsenal. Hazy golden color with a white head leaving light foam. Floral chamomile aroma with minimal funk. The flavor it’s nice, very floral and very dry. Medium body with nice lively carbonation. Enjoyable but not crazy.

after4ever (6562) - Brier, Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2014
750, capped. Pours a cloudy medium amber with a loose white head that fades fairly quickly. Sweet grassy nose, floral; plenty of chamomile. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Soft caramel, lots of grass and floral chamomile notes. Very pleasant and easy drinking. A bit too sweet and simple to be amazing, but very well made and worth repeats nevertheless.

Draft pour at Special Brews. Pours a cloudy golden color with a really nice aroma with oranges and belgian yeast. Really nice mild orange spice flavor with a ton of belgian yeast in the finish. Sweet and flavorful. Really enjoyed this. A little different than your typical saison. Good stuff.

mcberko (8695) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2014
On tap at Elizabeth Station, pours a cloudy golden blonde with a small white head. Aroma is very nice, with notes of Belgian yeast, cereal and light farmhouse notes. Flavour brings out complex farmhouse yeast and lightly sweet cereal notes. Very well-constructed and highly drinkable. Everything I like in a non-brett saison. Excellent.
