fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Cloudy pale blond color. The aroma is a bit lemony and orangey; the mouthfeel is not too weak or too dry; light wheat flavor with light spicy presence and some bitter orange peel; quite bitter overall.
It’s a regular Witbier (I would have expected a drier, cleaner and sharper beer to be defined Saison).

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Draft at the source. Clear pale yellow color, thick white head, solid lacing. Aroma is funky and dusty. Taste is funky rye and carraway seeds. Interesting.

Imaena (1703) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Draught. This is a decent saison that is perfect in the temperate Oregon summers.

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Draft at the brewery in Hood River. Lean, light and tart with floral and herbal and juicy lemon. Crisp Pilsner malt fluffiness and chewiness with round, frothy carbonation. Turns a bit astringent / waxy / rind-like in a full glass, and resinous too, but similar in nature to overuse of German hops (and this might have Saaz in it): overly pithy and astringent when the body is so lean. It’s almost 4.0-level stuff, I think, if the bitterness was brought down a bit. I certainly enjoyed it more than the regular Saison, which seemed acidic, tart, phenolic, tropical and nearly sour.

beersearcher (2296) - Glendale, California, USA - AUG 31, 2013
My choice of the two saisons that I had. This one is a little brighter and not weighed down by alcohol. Has some really nice fruit taste to it. A touch of Belgian yeast ties it together.

mcberko (5368) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 21, 2013
On tap at pFriem, pours a cloudy blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out light notes of lemon and dill, along with some rustic notes. Flavour brings out notes of lemon and dill, followed by some dry hoppiness and slight florally rustic notes. Highly drinkable, finishing dry and dill-like. Great saison.

BrewDad (4632) - Olympia, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Yellow gold in color, hazy with a thin head. Super little saison flavor good use of malts and yeast. I am impressed.

boFNjackson (4025) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Tap @ Fifteenth Ave. Hophouse... Poured pale yellow with a thin, off-white head. Easy drinking saison. Citrus and lemongrass with mild floral hops, some bready malts for balance and a saison-like spiced yeast tone. Gets the job done and a enough death to make it interesting for this sessionable beer.

bvc (1141) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Draft at lardo. Hazed straw yellow thin tight white head. Hay, pale malt, fruit esters..banana, apple, hint of cotton candy, lemon pith, grassy hop. White pepper, pale malt, fruity yeast, dry hay and grassy hop finish into pepper bittering. Drinks easy and pairs well with this pork belly torta.

Draught. Pours cloudy dark yellow with thin white head. Little lacing. Spicy faint aroma with a bit of lemon. Light bodied, light flavour with some malt, wheat, spice and citrus. Light finish with a hop.
