maxwelldeux (3812) - 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 you’d 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 (303) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 19, 2014
From last month’s Total Wine summer beer tasting class. Lots of aroma here; good flavor. For both aroma and flavor: yeast; lemon; Belgian; clove; sharp; peppery. I’d definitely have this again.

tiong (4019) - 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.

onceblind (4670) - 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.

Prufrockstar (1164) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Bomber. Clear gold, wispy white head. Mineral, bubblegum, earth toast and grass. Reasonably dry with an ipa-level bitter finish that lasts. Medium body. Overall: okay local saison-ipa.

Thewade (328) - USA - MAY 21, 2014
On draft at Yardhouse in Seattle. Excellent saison. Slight orange notes. Easy to drink and enjoyable.

DiarmaidBHK (3583) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle from Total wine McLean. Pours orange with a thick white pillow head. Nice funkiness on the nose. Some nice hop virtue on the tongue but not as much of the barnyard as I was hoping. Finishes clean. Solid.

skoisirius (1765) - Earth, Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle. Medium bodied with a nice grass element to it. Quite a banger in the spice department, fills out the flavors well. Peppery almost, if you will. Hints of lemon hops in there as well. Good tasty brew, not outstanding.

khays (57) - - APR 27, 2014
Smells estery, yeasty and fruity (raspberry and pear notes) and there is a very slight metallic smell. Pours a golden colour, looks highly carbonated and clear. White finger width head. Complex flavour, sweet and bitter, like grapefruit peel, hints of raspberry, strawberry, spices, grass and pear. Lack the funk that is usually present with saisons. Medium body, sweet to begin with, creamy in the middle, a bit bitter near the end and slightly astringent to finish. Perhaps this is a little too refined for a saison, no haze, clear taste, no funk and really amazing flavour. The bitter finish leaves you feel like you just are grapefruit peel, which is all. Would fault this beer for.

bytemesis (3526) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 1, 2013
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 ain’t bad!
