brokensail (11008) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 21, 2013
A hazy golden orange pour with a white head. Lactic sourness up front with a nice lemon zest note. Some grass, straw, yeast, and a light bready sweetness. Very bright and citrusy. The flavor has a very nice lemon tartness, lime zest, and plenty of grass. A bit of bread sweetness, yeast, straw, and a dry finish.

JohnnyJ (4370) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Draft at OBriens. Clear golden amber pour, with fluffy white head. Bread, rough grain, straw, light lemon grass, banana sweetness, and finishes with light tartness which is a bit strange. Decent and enjoyable, but not a fantastic saison.

Hazy blond colour. This is rather gassy. Thin light body with a flavour that is a bit too sour and also bready/yeasty.

Sammy (8680) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. So-so saison, certainly displaying white pepper, coriander, and yeast. Not a lot of inviting spices, however. Quaffable. Blonde coloured body.

phaleslu (6555) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Draft at the brewpub, served in a sampler. Pours a hazy gold color with a white head that laces the glass evenly. Notes of banana, bready malts, clove, sugar, light bready funk, straw, apricot, and light white pepper. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bready mouthfeel. Dry finish. Solid saison.

Not a huge Saison fan but this is tasty. Smooth and bubbly. Sticky head. Draft at Russian river. Good grapefruit backbone ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jethrodium (366) - Berkeley, California, USA - OCT 31, 2012
From a growler. Pours a hazy golden amber with a small white head that has good retention and leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is earthy with a light mineral note, a hint of apple, and a peppery note. The Taste is dry and earthy with a bit of pepper. The finish is dry and earthy with some light apricot. Medium body. Medium carbonation. A pretty solid American Saison.

Pale golden straw colour. The nose is bright ad lemony. A little bit of light pepper and lemon. Fresh and spicy. Nicely done. Flinty/spicy bitterness. Awesome
