Strykzone (4966) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2012
Sampled at the brewpub. Cloudy gold. No head. Grass and yeast aroma. This is also a bit buttery as well as the above. This is quite malty and has some nice fruit. A bit of spice puts this over the top. Nice.

dumontn (529) - CHICAGO, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2012
Pours completely hazy yellow-orange with a small head that fades to a lace. Aroma is farts, pear, white pepper. Taste is spice, white pepper, pear, some tartness. Body is medium with active carbonation and a long boozy finish. Overall, this just really didntí do it for me. I love saisons, but I didnít even finish a glass of this.

HighWine (952) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Tap flight at the brewery. Clear, dark golden pour, minimal head. Aroma of spice, yeast, and hops. Flavorful brew. Spice drops mixed with a mild hop background. Slippery mouthfeel. Nice .

Newk (299) - - MAR 4, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2012 poured from tap at revolution. Poured into a tulip with a slightly hazy yellow/gold color and a nice head. Very good aromas of spice, lemon peels, and citrus notes. Well balanced, but lacking a bit of depth. Well balanced with a smooth medium feel. Flavorful with notes of citrus, spices and some navel oranges. This version is at 8.1% and itís not really noticeable. A more citrusy take on a saison. The feel is a bit lighter than Iíd personally like, but this is a very good and enjoyable beer.

madvike (2753) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 26, 2011
On cask at GTMW - Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Light spice on the nose, with some funk and a bit of fruit, most notably apricot. Taste is light fruit, yeasty goodness, and a light malt base. Smooth and well-carbonated.

wmubronco1992 (617) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Draft at the Revolution brewpub. Pours a honey color. Very mild aroma. Flavor is sweet fruit and spicy, but something didnít work for me. I love a good saison, but this one was missing something for me. Good mouthfeel. Overall this one was just ok. Based on the other ratings I hope to get another sample next time Iím in Chicago.

Ceebs25 (503) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - AUG 2, 2011
On tap at their brewpub. This was a nicely hopped-up saison, with herbals and peppery spice standing out. The pour was too close to the top of the glass, leaving nothing more than a thin layer of wispy white head. The body was fairly translucent and burnt orange in color in the darker lighting. A full, hazy cloud of an aroma here, with some decent notes. Bananas, peppery spice, lots of herb, some caramel, and nutty cereal grains. The mouthfeel was peppery and bitter. This bitterness made this saison unique for sure. Mixed fruity notes up front, and peppery citrus. More of a herbal and light floral finish. Really not too bad here. Good profile, buts things didnít quite come together for me in all the right ways.

LilBeerDoctor (3497) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a white head. Aroma of yeast, grainy/rice malt, and spices. Flavor of yeast, bready malt, lots of spices (pepper) in the background, some tangy citrus. A good, spicy saison. 7/4/8/4/14 [3.7/5]
