Scipio (756) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Pours a golden with weaker white head. Aroma has orange, lemon, spices, and grass. Kind of has a bubblegumish impression as well. Taste is quite fruity and is powerful in the orange flavor. Still spicy and grassy while containing something else, I believe clove. Peppery as well. Rather strong aftertaste of oranges and lemon. Medium bodied with a thinner texture. On the sweeter side. Overall, Iím pretty happy with this.

22 oz bottle purchased from West Lakeview in Chicago. Poured a nice gold with minimal white head. A very nice spiciness in it, definitely not overwhelming but certainly delicious. I really liked this.

On tap at the brewpub. This was different than other saisons Iíve had. Didnít get much of the Belgian farmhouse funk. A bit more on the sweet side more Orange and tangerine than peppery spice. Still, not a bad one.

Steve_0 (3424) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Bottle at Danís, courtesy of Armin. Big thanks man! Pour is hazy lemon in appearance with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Tart lemon peel, wheat, white pepper, light pineapple, yeast, and pear in the aroma. Taste is very spicy, bread, pepper, light pineapple, booze, citrus, and band-aid. Nice. Mouthfeel is medium with high carbonation. Pretty tasty stuff.

dlinn (141) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Light but somewhat boozy aroma. Initially somewhat boozy flavor as well, but dissipates after a few sips. Light, malty flavor. Not bad.

Bottle @ Danís house, courtesy of Armin. Thanks a bunch! Light golden orange appearance with a white head. Orange, floral, potpourri, a bit spicy, light straw, tasty aroma. Tangy, spicy, lemon/tangerine, a bit spicy yeasty, straw/grassy, very refreshing flavor. Fairly dry. Super easy drinking and fun to drink.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, thanks to matboz! Clear orange pour with thin white head, aroma has notes of grain, grass, hints of pear, white grape, touch of sour grain, nice earthy notes, slight caramel and crackery notes. Taste is a mix of sour acidic grain, funky earthy notes, touch of spice, grass, touch of grainy and husky notes, finishing fairly bitter, dry, slightly sweet.

Thanks to TNT for the bottle. Light body with a bit of grain. Heavy pepper and phenols in the nose. A bit of booze comes through in the flavor. Crisp and dry.

vyvvy (4737) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Sampled at the Midwest Belgian Beer Fest 2012 - pours clear-ish yellow with a white head. The aroma has earthy yeast, rich malt and Belgian yeast fruitiness. It has a medium / full body with a mild amount of soft carbonation. The flavor starts a bit warm with earthy mushy maltiness along with the aroma traits. The finish is earthier and shows more alcohol presence than Iíd like. Okay saison.

nuplastikk (5090) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Orange-tan, tulip glass. Dry lemon pepper aroma. Dry and sweet, with some underlying funkiness. Captures the style well, maybe leaning a little to the sweet side. Some twisted melon notes. A nice Saison, but not as nice as I remembered it being the first time. Quite peppery, yet sugary. OK.
