Hazy golden pour; sticky white lace retains. So dry, so funky. Grassy, yeasty, lacks depth. Did I mention it's dry?

More defined, articulate and interesting than most saisons. Pleasant body with a meaty complexity.

Barreras (978) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Pours a cloudy yellow color typical of a saison. Aroma is very floral with a tinge of sweet fruit. Taste is dry but mildly zesty, with a distinct floral aftertaste left on the palate. An easy drinking beer that disappears quickly but has some flavor attached. A decent saison...

keanex (1452) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle with no noticed date.
Appearance: Mildly hazy golden body with a dense white head that sticks around for a while.
Aroma: Mild aroma with lemon and yeast, pleasant.
Taste: Mild flavor that’s balanced between malts and citrus. Lemon and some spicy phenols match doughy malts with a mildly bitter lingering presence.
Palate: Full-bodied with light carbonation.
Overall: Solid saison, it’s easy to drink and would be a nice beer to drink during a nice breezy Spring day/

pras (463) - Maryland, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Nice yellow color. Yesaty aroma coming through with a hint of citrus. Flavor is bracingly bitter, with citrus notes and yeast coming through. Palate is bone dry. Very good example of an American Saison. Very enjoyable.

Hazy orange of color with a white head. An aroma of soap, sweets, hops, pineapple and peach. A flavor of hops, peach, dry, hops, grapefruits and weak sweets.

Lovely fresh and vibrant saison. Typically I am not a fan of the style but this got my attention with is lively yeast and spice characters. Refreshing.

dnstone (2139) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Lemony, spiced aroma. Clear golden in color with a slight sudsy white head. Balanced (not too dry or sweet) with a clean spiced and citrus peel character. I like this saison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle: Pours a tangerine orange color with a fleeting white head. Nose is mild, dry florals, yeast, and seemingly creamed corn. As it warms, the florals open up a bit and it has more of a spicey/lively floral smell. Potent florals in the taste; herbal and barnyard. Good yeast flavors and mild barnyard. A bit of fresh rye bread before finishing with a crisp floral and yeast flurry. Overall good, but not great offering of the Americanized saison.
