This Saison is ok, it has a pale flavor that has a bit of honey highlights. Nothing exciting

Cybercat (3275) - Georgia, USA - APR 15, 2011
Comes out of the tap a pretty clear golden with a fine-bubbled white head. Strong fruity and woody aroma has a firm malty tone and hints of pear and banana. Lip-smacking malty flavor has oak and banan tones and a hint of grass. Texture is smooth, slightly slimy (but not nasty at all!) and rather fizzy.

bozoNZ (719) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 4, 2007
330ml bottle. Golden, reasonably clearwith a decent lacy head. Floral aroma with almost fruit apricot stones. Flavours slightly peppery with some sourness. too malt dominant and lacks sourness, bite and carbonation

thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2007
Tasted at the Brewery, 3/29/07. Nice golden beer with a nice white head. Aroma is slightly fruity and hoppy. Taste is subtly fruity, but overall this beer was too watery. Sam Adams should stick with Germanic beers and steer FAR AWAY from the Belgians.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 6, 2007
Tasted 03/05/2007. 12oz bottle, shared amongst 4 of us, after a BJCP study group. Hazy pale-medium gold, reasonable white head stands. Fruity hops on the nose at first, mostly orange. Caramel malts, possibly munich, come to dominate the nose with some spices later that aren’t all that pleasant. Caramel malts and medium bitterness up front in the mouth, with strong unpleasant vinyl and clove note in the finish. Too malty, under-attenuated and under-carbonated for the style. Not all that pleasant to drink either! I’m not surprised this failed to medal at the NZ Beer Awards. Sam Adams seem to struggle with beers that are not meant to be richly malty.
