lusikka (6963) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2013
Draught @ Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Pours a hazy golden colour with a white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus, grapefruit and white grapes. Flavour of wheat, caramel, white grapes, Belgian hops, floral notes and grains. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a citrusy bitter finish with dry white grapes. Really well balanced and reminds me of Avec Les Bons Voeux.

TheAlum (6193) - Aurora, 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 letís 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 Iíve had from Chicagoland. Tasty, inoffensive, balanced well. Pulls several elements and flavors together well.

jmgreenuk (5616) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 15, 2013
Tap at Revolution Brewing, Milwaulkee Ave, Chicago. Poured a clear medium amber with a round white head. The aroma is yeast and citrus fruit. The flavour is medium sour with a surprisingly malty caramel acid citrus palate. A somewhat different saison!

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Iíve had a bomber or few of this from the local grocery store. (Sadly, they donít stock it anymore.) The body is clear and golden with a short-lived sudsy head. It has a warm pale malt sweetness to the aroma, candy-like, with some floral scents and a bit of funk. It tastes of a floral bitterness followed by a soft sweetness and a hint of apple. The finish is dry and mildly bitter. Pretty decent stuff.

Pailhead (5445) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2013
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy citrus, orange peel, and a touch of spice Belgian yeast. Itís 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. Itís light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
