brokensail (10955) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 20, 2014
On tap @ Revolution. Orange pour with a white head. Clove and white pepper spiciness, but lots of sweet bread, apple, and pear. Fair amount of sugar and bubblegum, too. Flavor is way too sweet. Bread, apple, and pears. Bubblegum and banana esters as well. Light pepper, some clove, and a bit of nutmeg. Not bad, but not really a saison.

ben4321 (3920) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Location: Draft at Primebar, 7/1/14

Aroma: The nose is yeast and spice, some citrus/fruity notes as well
Appearance: it pours a clear golden-orange color with a small white head and lace
Flavor: The taste is much the same, spice and fruit, light sweet, light-mid bitter
Palate: The body is medium, it has a solid mouthfeel, and a plus carbonation
Overall Impression: Solid, drinkable saison. Definitely worth trying, and makes for a nice sping/summer happy hour beer.

wedgie9 (1946) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 26, 2010
Tasted on draft at Revolution. Pours cloudy orange with a thick white head. SLightly nutty and sweet aroma with a hint of lemongrass. On the front of the palate there is a hint of citrus hops with a nice sweet roundness. There is also lemongrass with a yeasty finish. The carbonation is very lively with both a medium body and finish. Overall, this beer is great with food, but it is lacking a bit in the complexity department.

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 didn’t 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 I’m in Chicago.

GJF (1250) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - JUL 19, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Very floral. Some spice and banana flavor. White head with some very nice lacing. A little too sweet for me on this, but some interesting flavors.

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.

Draft, 8.1%. Cloudy apple cider body, small white head, nice lacing. Aroma is moderately sweet spicy, some pepper, light funk. Taste is moderately sweet, pepper, some spicy, funk, light sourness. Medium body, some effervescence. Too sweet -- took away from the saison qualities.

Draft at kedzie. From notes. Malty and bready with a little apple. A little on the fizzy side. Decent, but not really my style.
