Great nose and palate. Smells and taste like an IPA more than a Saison. Bitter and floral, very frothy, solid.

Very active white head rises from the glass. Aromatics of lemon, thyme, fresh pit fruit, and a little bit of pine. Fresh-tasting, with a medium finish and a bit sticky mouthfeel. Not too reminiscent of a saison.

Appearance: clear bright gold into a chalice; huge, thick, frothy bright white head, with giant swathes of lace and hyperactive carbonation jets--itís a pretty beer. Aroma: strong nose of kaffir lime, lemon zest, tangerine, apricot, with an undertone of light cracker, pie crust, and a hint of funk. Taste: hugely bitter, with muddled and musty hops overpowering all other flavors; itís a mess, but Iím getting lime, pineapple, some pine, pickle juice (!?) and a lot of dust. Finish: lingering bitter must that dries my mouth to an insane degree. Notes: Wow. Looked so pretty to start with, and smelled ok, but itís like someone took a basic saison and indescriminately dumped bag after bag of homebrewerís hops into it with no rhyme or reason. I despised this beer.

Bottle. Pours a golden color with white head. Malty, yeasty, dusty, citrus flavors. Pretty decent.

Draft pour. Pours a dark gold with a unique sour apple aroma for a saison. Light ape flavor with some spice. A unique saison overall. Not bad, but definitely not what I expected. Pretty good.

adnielsen (9090) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle @ Jonís place on the 4th. Pours a cloudy yellow orange with a creamy off white head. Aroma has slightly dank, piney hops in the nose with fruity yeast, tropical fruit, and orange citrus. A touch tart. Slightly earthy, bitter hoppy flavor. Bready yeast. Lemon citrus. Fairly high bitterness. Kind of interesting but could use some work.

maxwelldeux (3665) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Draught at the brewpub. Pours a mostly clear light amber color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is floral and slightly sour, but without a lot of the saison funk youíd expect. Taste is fresh and slightly sour, with a nice bite to it. Seems like a decent inoffensive entry into saisons for the novice.

DMLINAZ (290) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 19, 2014
From last monthís Total Wine summer beer tasting class. Lots of aroma here; good flavor. For both aroma and flavor: yeast; lemon; Belgian; clove; sharp; peppery. Iíd definitely have this again.

tiong (3771) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2014
Draught @ The Pike Brewing Co, Seattle, WA

Pours clear golden with a smooth head. Aroma of floral hops, crisp maltiness and earthy yeastiness with some spices. Taste is floral hoppy, spicy and yeasty with some earthy notes. Finish is hoppy and yeasty with some lingering bitterness. Okay hoppy saison.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 17/20
onceblind (4078) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Clear golden under a sticky and lasting foamy white head. Earthy floral and funky nose with hay and white flowers, leafy hops, and freshly milled wheat. Flavor is bright and full and fun with wheat and hay and oats and bright fruity tones like clementine and pear and guava and an earthy kiwi. Very tasty saison worthy of competing with any saison from Denver or Belgium.
