This was a pretty good saison. Pretty dry, yeasty,and floral. Winchell brought this in SLC and brought it back to Lawrence in 2013.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Very pale straw, slight haze, light carbonation, large sudsy white head, fairly decent lacing.   Pale floral and wheaty nose.   A little yeasty as well, but not too heavy.   Soft wheatiness up front, with a pale floral and yeasty background.   Pretty much tastes like it smells.   Not a real bright example, but also not heavy like so many American ones.   Backside shows some more woodsy like floralness.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   As it warms it picks up more of a low shrubby woodsy floral note.   A little different, thankfully not too heavy.   Enjoyable.   Thanks Dallas for the bottle!

Strykzone (5526) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2013
Bottle from Hayduke. This was translucent golden and had a nice white fluffy head. I smelled grass and a bit of Belgian yeast with that sugar. Lemon grass was tasted and lead the flavor profile. The Belgian yeast and sugar notes were background. A bit of pepper came late. This is a nice summer beer and was appreciated during a homebrew session.

hayduke (3767) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 29, 2013
This was tasted with Strykzone (in person, believe it or not) in Wood River, IL while we were homebrewing. Pours a hazy yellow. Big foamy white head. Medium body with a carbonated mouthfeel. Nose of lemon hops and lots of barnyard funk. Nice flavorful finish. Good.

LamarBurton (376) - California, USA - APR 24, 2013
Bottle pour. Clear light gold with a lasting white head and nice lacing. Aroma is floral hops, Belgian yeast, light lemon notes, some wheat malt character. Taste is sweet flowers, white fruit, light pepper character from the yeast, some more floral hop character, with some sweet malt in the mid palate before moving to an effervescent and thirst quenching finish. Really nice!

drewbeerme (3898) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2013

EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Lemony, spicy, earthy/dusty yeast aroma. Spritzy carbonation... Lots-o-head, which dissipates quickly. A lot of fruity flavor (tart lemon, and maybe some subtle pear or something?). Banana/bubblegum in finish/aftertaste. Nice pepper/coriander spiciness, and some earthy yeast flavor. A little sweeter than I generally like in a Saison--but I think it works OK in this one.

500 ml. bottle. Thanks Dallas! Pours a hazy gold with a large white head. Aroma of yeast, citrus, spice, and malt. Taste is lemons, yeast, malt, spice, and florals. Finishes dry and somewhat bitter. Nice.
