kevinator (873) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JAN 13, 2013
I think this is a somewhat underrated beer. Quite pleasant and surprising. For a Saison it had a floral hop aroma. The color was cloudy like a pear cider. The head was enormous. Clean and weighty palate with a moderate carbonation. The flavors were big and mixed. Hops up front but Belgian champagne yeast. Some fruitiness but earthy essences as well. Really unique.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - SEP 8, 2012
750ml bottle poured into snifter. Sent as an extra, and what a sweet surprise this was. Aroma has sweet hints of lemon oil, hops and yeast. Flavor is a bit champagne like but mostly dry. Aroma is definitely better then the flavor, which is sort of a let down for me.

brokensail (10645) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Cloudy yellow in color with a huge, rocky, white head. The nose has a great floral and citrus hop aroma with a touch of grass. Light funk and yeast to it with some bread and cracker malts. Just a hint of sweet fruit. The flavor is dry and crisp with a moderate yeast flavor. Mild fruit (pear, apple) with a bit of citrus. Decently floral and a hint of grass. Nice hop character overall.

Nose has some floral hops. Flavor has a bit of spice and malt. Dry. High carbonation. Touch of fruit. Not too exciting.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Big thanks to Beerboy9960 for sending this! Nice dark orange pour, huge head from the bottle conditioning, and a massive floral aroma (seems more than just Simcoe, maybe some genuine fleurs and shit). Champagne yeast and dry hopping combined so well with the spiciness of the saison, YUM. The only patch on this was an occasional soapiness in the taste, but still really enjoyable.
