Excellent beer. Pours a hazy orange with a big fluffy white head. The aroma has flowers, fruit, very summery. The flavor has the fruit and a bit of sweetness but is well balanced with peppery hops. Finishes dry and clean. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Gold pour, white head, excellent retention/lace. Aroma of bubblegum, fruity ester, citrus/floral hops, lemon zest, grain. Taste is bitter, floral/citrus hop, spicy yeast, lemon peel. Palate is average carbonation, a bit oily, bitter finish. More IPA than saison.

Tmoney99 (12247) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Draft. Poured a hazy orange yellow color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy hop, citrus and yeast aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. I would recommend this to a friend.

keanex (1629) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JUN 24, 2013
2013 release.
Appearance: The body is golden in color with a mild haze, the head is tall with decent retention, the color white.
Aroma: The aroma is floral and spicy with light malts and light strawberry and even bubblegum notes.
Taste: Light fruity notes and bubblegum hints hit the palate first as the strawberry gets a bit heavier by the mid-taste where it’s complimented nicely with a light spice and mild malts. The finish has a touch of bitterness and a perfume quality to it. Very nice.
Palate: The body is soft with a light leaning thickness.
Overall: This is a great saison, I wish it were a bit more bold but I suppose balance is the name of the game here. Well done.

superspak (3627) - Michigan, USA - JUN 24, 2013
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, 2013 bottling. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a nice 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big orange zest, lemon zest, pear, herbal, floral, coriander, grass, pepper, clove, hay, bread, light funk, and earthy yeast spiciness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop and fruity/spicy yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of orange zest, lemon zest, pear, clove, pepper, herbal, coriander, floral, grass, hay, bread, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of citrus, light fruits, pepper, clove, herbal, floral, coriander, grass, bread, light funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic balance and complexity of citrus hops with fruity/spicy yeast esters; with a nice spiciness over fruitiness flavor balance; and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very crisp, smooth, and fairly prickly mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent saison. Great balance and complexity of hop and yeast flavors; very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

From a 75 cl bottle shared at home. Pours a cloudy gold with a thick white head. Bubblegum aroma. Flavors of cardoman, orange, and a hint of banana. Tasty.

3fourths (8702) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 21, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2015 Fresh bottle. Hazed gold body with a small white head. Good effervescence brings to life a lot of vivid peppery bubble gum esters with lemony, grassy hops and a mineral-heavy pilsner malt honey richness. Floral, chalky, sulfuric, salty, peppery, juicy. Rich and tart and fruity and dry and bitter and beautiful. Breathes a bit of banana esters as it opens. I will complain that it’s a little too rough / dry around the edges and in the finish, but otherwise it’s very clean tasting, no fusels, highly attenuated, and in fine shape.
