Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Lightly sweet aroma with some spicy hints. The flavor has a peppery spicy note that rubs me slightly the wrong way. Light earthy notes and a light sweetness, followed by a pleasant dry finish. Decent.

juiceisloose (1055) - Windermere, Florida, USA - NOV 10, 2009
Bomber courtesy seabass. This one pours a hazy golden yellow color topped by a thick, foamy white head that slowly fades to a thin film. The aroma shows some lemon citrus, fresh floral hops, peppery spices, and some funky yeast. The flavor follows and is slightly tart with the citrus fruit and grassy hops playing off nicely with the peppery spices and funky yeast. Medium bodied and refreshingly dry on the palate and finely carbonated that leads to a spicy dry finish. The flavors compliment each other well. Really nice saison.

Pours hazy pale golden with a small, creamy, off-white film head. Fine lacings. Aroma is sweet, some pilsner malts, light brett. Highish carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet and malty, light pepper, dry brett-y, a touch of lactic acid. Elegantly spicy. Very easilty drinkable.

wavers1 (872) - Notown, California, USA - NOV 5, 2009
bottle courtesy of bmartin08, thanks man, i own you! this was the saison i have been waiting for to make me a fan of the style! pours a very hazy, soapy muttled orange. head is a nice creamy orange-ish offwhiote what lasts a bit and leaves some spotting and retains a nice ring the whole way through. nice bready, hoppy aroma with a strong bit of banana. sweet yeasty notes and wild sour notes are balanced well in the nose. taste is tart, sweet, bold at first, yet very delicate, refreshing, but even in cold weather. citrus, beady wild yeast with tons of subtle flavor, and faint hints of several cooking herbs balance out nicely. the body is nice and full, creamy and rich, especially for a saison. yet it fades to nothingness in the back end and finishes with a well balanced hot tartness and sweet pils malt oiliness. nice easy drinker, well rounded.

Fin (7251) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2009
At the ’Beer Temple’, Amsterdam, 28-10-09 Nice sourness on the nose, colour is amber with white head. Once again seems a decent beer, its a little fruity and there is some yeast, taste is a lazy sourness, actually I’m geting a tad bored of this beer the more I drink it. A6 A3 F6 P3 Ov13 3.1
