bhensonb (10340) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Bomber from LetsPour.com. Pours a dark rather orange gold with a transient white head. Not getting much out of the nose, except some mild spicy citrus. Med body. Flavor is very Belgian yeast/fruity ester. To taste it is to know it’s Belgian. There are some very earthy aspects to it. And it’s also rather citrus. It’s a bit heavy for a saison, perhaps, but I have no idea why it has a low rating.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 14, 2012
Tap @ River North. Pours a bit hazy, golden orange appearance with a white head. Somewhat citrusy fruity, somewhat peppery, yeasty, sweet malty aroma. I got a ton of apricot/peach fruitiness in the flavor along with some spiciness, though this really didn’t jump out at me as a saison- much more like a belgian ale. Ok but may need some tweaks (like using an actual saison yeast).

GT2 (7863) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Apparently this beer is thus named because of the owner’s wife demanding that if he started a brewery, he needed to name a beer after her. -__-

Tap at River North. Low haze golden pour. Weak foam. Sugary candy aroma with stickier, phenolic Belgian yeast. Taste is more like an Abbey Tripel with booze, sugar, soap and hefty rustic grain cracker content. Eh. Dusty mouthfeel. Not really on track for saison.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 12, 2012
draft. lightly hazed orange body with a small off-white head. little retention. sweet and juicy fruit nose is made up of candy sugar, pear / apricot / orange / general fruit cocktail syrup... that sort o "fruit" character. which may be ester-driven, but there’s so little yeast at play here that I’m unsure. the yeast is dull and lifeless, and sadly the body and texture of this one is just as dull and lifeless. it’s a somewhat goopy / chewy / sweet mess of sharp candy sugar. doesn’t fall in with what’s expected of the name saison, and really doesn’t fall in with what would be expected of something like "belgian golden" or "belgian ale".
