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 (2137) - 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.

First pour resulted in almost no head. Second pour, a very vigorous one, produced a nice fluffy white head atop a good looking sunflower color. Clean, clear look, very few active bubbles. As a result if the weak head on this thing, the nose isn't very notable. Very very faint spice. Mainly fruity esters, a little citrus, and some grass. Smells closer to a tripel with there being almost no spice or funk. Taste is fairly straightforward. Not a lot of complexity here. Lemon and dill are the major players. Enough carbonation on the mouthfeel despite lack of bubbles. There's some apple skin and faint saison yeast playing with the lemony herb flavor. Mild bitterness on the finish. No pepper, no phenols. Actually feels pretty good on the mouth. Full light bodied, decent carbonation in the mouth. Not a complex beer and not particularly representative of the saison style. The flavor is actually pretty good , though. And drinkable. Poor man's Pfriem Little Saison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not a beer that has it’s own distinct character. Very pale, light and easy drinking, lots to remind you what you’re drinking, musty yeasty astringent, and very good at it too.
