vyvvy (4131) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Sampled at the Midwest Belgian Beer Fest 2012 - pours clear-ish yellow with a white head. The aroma has earthy yeast, rich malt and Belgian yeast fruitiness. It has a medium / full body with a mild amount of soft carbonation. The flavor starts a bit warm with earthy mushy maltiness along with the aroma traits. The finish is earthier and shows more alcohol presence than I’d like. Okay saison.

Huhzubendah (2650) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 19, 2013
The beer is fairly hazy,appearing copper to orange hued with an off-white head. The aroma offers malt, sweet and sour apples, green, earth. Earth and mineral water character. Perhaps a mild tartness. Medium bodied, finishing dry with a hint of spice. Overall, this was okay.

Cornfield (5541) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2014
I’ve had a bomber or few of this from the local grocery store. (Sadly, they don’t 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.

bytemesis (3495) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy golden amber with a gigantic puffy off-white head that makes it a pain in the butt to pour. Head lasts a long time and leaves big sticky lacing on the glass. Aroma is honey, grassy, pepper, rye spiciness. Flavor is light sweet, peppery, hay, yeasty esters; a bit fruity. Dry finish, minimal bitterness. Medium light body, high carbonation.

brokensail (11529) - 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 (4092) - 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.
