TheAlum (5205) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2010
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a hazy murky glowing orange, a bit darker, some tannish elements with a good offwhite head that stays decent sized, laces well. Aromas are a subtle fruity yeasty blend, a touch of spice mixed with apple, pear, and mellow banana. Grainy malts, a touch of wheat, and vanilla come in with dry and decent bittering hops, floral and earthy. Initial is nice, flavorful malts and fruity esters attack the palate, banana, apple, pear mix with a touch of bubblegum, citrus, vanilla, faint honey, good bitterness that let’s the dominant yeasty spice and fruit stay master, but balances well, drys out to a near champagne quality. A touch of orange, floral and earthy hops, and lingering spice stick to the palate. One of the better Saisons I’ve had from Chicagoland. Tasty, inoffensive, balanced well. Pulls several elements and flavors together well.

DrSilverworm (5025) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 12, 2012
22oz bottle. Clear golden color. Thin white head, dots of lace. Really nice fruity estery nose. Nice lemon peel, orange peel, spice (clove). Zesty, estery, kind of savory taste. Slightly bigger body, smooth lighter carbonation. Some interesting lemony tartness. Mild floral hops. I wanted to be skeptical, but I can’t help but dig it. Spiciness impedes drinkability slightly, but this is still a really nice American saison.

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.

Strykzone (4478) - 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.

b3shine (4440) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks good; a slightly hazy orange with off-white lacing. Smells yeasty and spicy with light hop notes. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. An okay saison.

Pailhead (4416) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2013
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy citrus, orange peel, and a touch of spice Belgian yeast. It’s a transparent dull orange with a small white head that leaves behind a good amount of thin webbing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light-moderate citrus and faint Belgian yeast. The finish has moderate orange peel, light lemon peel, floral notes, and a hint spice. It’s light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

kermis (4285) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2013
Draft at Revolution Brewing, Chicago. Pours hazy dark golden with an off white head.. Aroma of peppery saison yeast, malt, fruit, caramel and citrus. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Very malty for the style.

nuplastikk (4128) - 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.
