daknole (9486) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Cloudy yellow pour with a white head. Loads of fruit in the nose, apples, pears, apricots, some nice yeasty qualities. Flavor is fruity, a bit dry and a great yeasty finish. Good stuff!

JPDurden24 (1622) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUN 15, 2012
At FWIBF, Hazy and golden pour, Yeasty and grass aroma, Fruity, citrus with a some alcohol in the finish. Not great, but pretty good and a little different.

hombrepalo (1853) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Pint pour int a plastic cup at the grand opening. Pours light hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is honey and tropical fruit, with sweet agave nectar. Drier taste, with apple juice, white grape, honey and a mineral and yeast finish. Smooth and lightly slick in the mouth.

Vir4030 (530) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 5, 2012
On tap at the curragh in Skokie, pours a medium orange, opaque, with a innish white head. Spicy alcohol aroma like a good Belgian. Flavor is strng and mouthy alcohol and some sort of citrus hint.

Just the right level of spice and earthiness. It’s not often that I chose to drink a saison over an i.p.a. but this was my pick over Revolution’s Anti-Hero.

GuinnessHong (147) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Had this on tap at The Curragh Irish Pub in Skokie, Illinois. Made notes on the spot using BeerJournal app for Android. Served in a tulip glass. Poured a dark golden clear. Medium head with medium dissipation time. Low carbonation. Taste is slightly bitter and astringent. Hoppy, with lingering bitter aftertaste.

Sammy (8954) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2012
Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Decent and serviceable though not exceptional saison. This batch weighed in at 8.1%. It hits the style, apple flavour commingles with orange and grapefruit. Lacey, farmhouse aroma.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
JoeinDahlem (1343) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 10, 2012
I do love me some Spalt. An ale that is spicy from the hops and yeast rather than kitchen-cabinet nonsense. Spicy hop aroma and flavor, going quite dry with a light malty sweetness for balance. Nice stuff. Unnecessarily strong, perhaps.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
Strykzone (5077) - 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.

2.8
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 12/20
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 didnt’ do it for me. I love saisons, but I didn’t even finish a glass of this.
