Davros (1893) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2014
Pours gold with a large white head. Nose shows herbal and citrus notes, sweet honey and saison yeast. Very inviting. Very similar flavours; more honey, saison yeast, herbal/spicy hops and some grapefruit/orange peel. An assertive bitterness presents itself in the finish. Great moderately high carbonation works perfectly.

ericdevin (721) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle from unknown, Boston. Pours a brilliant golden hue, slight, lemony aroma, almost astringent, estery. Body lively, hits with a huge lemon/grapefruit finish, surprisingly bitter. Wow!

Brewhemia (17) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 23, 2014
Light golden color with white head. Peppery aroma. Sharp bitterness at first and a bubbling bitterness stays on the tongue along with taste of herbs I cant identify. Good but a bit to long bitter aftertaste for my taste.

mfp13jr (148) - Glenville, New York, USA - APR 13, 2014
UPDATED: APR 14, 2014 This beer pours pale straw qith plenty of fluffy white head that lasts the entire glass. Aroma is faint but pleasant. I wouldn’t drink this as a season, but it does have its place. The beer is light and flavorful.

ContemplateBeer (1524) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 13, 2014
Aroma: Lemony with some light cheesecloth; coriander perhaps? Reminds me a little of Riesling with some minor vinous, floral properties. Appearance: Well carbonated bright, hazy gold with a sticky white head. Flavor: Lemon peel; light cheesecloth; floral, maybe a little gum and coriander; no real "barnyard" properties to speak of. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: A good American Saison, but I would’ve liked a little more barnyard character.

Bottle; Pour is clear gold with a frothy, fine bubbled / yet modest head into this glass. Its sticky - and it retains on the average side here - The nose is floral, light herbal - modest grain presence with a hint of lemon. THe flavor profile is medium bodied, mild sweet - I thought it was lacking initial but it did grow on me a bit - peppery spices, grainy notes move to floral hops - Saison Americain is a good description for it, I suppose - Its a decent drinker but I don’t know if I would go out of my way for this

Bomber shared up to Proof from Craft Beer Cellar in Brandon, FL. Murky yellow pour. Barnyard funk, straw, herbal in aroma. Tastes are grain, vanilla, lemon, orange. Straightforward saison. Ok. 7.0
