Bottle - thanks glkaiser. Full disclosure - I am not a big Pike fan, so I was a bit predisposed to not like this one perhaps. Pour hazy amber, small white head, great lacing. Aroma is yeasty, grass, lemon grass, black pepper, grain. Flavor is the same, light sweet, zesty bitterness. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Finish is a bit zesty-metallic, but otherwise this ainít bad!

500ml bottle. Unfiltered orange-tan body. Soapy, steady, respectable off-white head. A really nice, pronounced aroma, very Belgian. An interesting, potent mixture of Belgian yeast and hops. Iím generally pretty critical of US Saisons, and while this one isnít in the Dupont vein, it has that bolder robust fruity/spiciness, this is quite solid. The extra hops are nice, and make it sort of reminiscent of Belgian IPA. Has a very nice amped up dry noble hop character. Funky and unique, would be a fun beer to revisit.

Wittales (564) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Appearnace was clear orange gold with diminishing rocky white 1 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are sweet pils, wheat malts with slight pineapple and orange hops and tart yeasts. Taste are slight sweet malt backing with hop of lemon, pineapple, then bready mild yeasts thing going on. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with medium body, mild tarty medinical fruity lasting finish. The brew was solid until the finish, bad bottle maybe with zingy finish.

MadRobin (1693) - Silver Spring, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Poured from 22 oz. bottle. Clear, amber gold with a large off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of white pepper, light fruit, yeast, spice, caramel and lemon. Taste of caramel, citrus, spice, pepper and light fruit. Medium body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

marcus (6011) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours cloudy golden with a foamy off-white head and a fruit and yeast aroma. There is a funky fruit and caramel malt flavor with a huge yeast presence and a bitter finish. Very barnyard.

metalhead0043 (141) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 27, 2013
22 oz for 3 bucks. Pours hazy orange with a huge fluffy white head. Aroma is grassy, wheat, spice and a little lemony zest. Taste is similar up front with a smooth bitterness on the end. Body is a little above medium, average carbonation, creamy texture. Quite a nice beer. One of the better saisons I have tried, and a very good value at that price.

Butters (3684) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Clear yellow pour with massive white billowy head. Very Floral and and earthyhops. Not peppery. More perfumy. Interesting. Cheap. And quaffable.

DialSquare (2307) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 20, 2013
From an old note (bottle shared up at Proof): belgian saison vibe with good bitter ipa backing it up. Well balanced. Wheat, lemon, biscuit, grass 7.6

CampesinoTino (725) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Bomber. Appearance is a hazy golden orange color with a half-inch of off-white foam. Mostly lemon, yeast, honey and herbal hops notes in the aroma. The taste is citrus rind, pine resin and Belgian yeast upfront along with some pepper, toasted grain and tropical fruit at the end. Plenty of carbonation in the body in addition to a dry, tart finish. Overall, an enjoyable regional take on the style.

nealblind (511) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Clear amber pour some head. Smells of funk, apples, pond water. Tastes of rye bread and then full hop flavor. Light carb. peachy bitter hops. aftertaste of dust and bretta. Watery palate. Very un-saison in quite a few ways. not nearly enough yeast flavors. good gateway into saisons for the ipa lover.
