brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Growler shared by GT. Pours a hazed pale golden color with a white head. Aroma is disappointing based on their other beers. White pepper, banana, apple, bread, and a hint of lemon zest. Maybe some yeast and orange. Flavor is kind of bland. Bread, lemon zest, white pepper, and banana. Cracker malt, yeast, and apple.

mcberko (14682) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
On tap at City Beer, pours a hazy pale golden with a medium creamy white head. Nose is like a traditional rustic farmhouse ale, with loads of rustic spicy notes and some moderate barnyard funk. Flavour isn’t as impressive as the nose, but this is still a high quality authentic saison, with very rustic notes, low funk, and Belgian yeast. Nice and dry, with a very rustic mouthfeel. Great stuff.

DSG (12189) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 15, 2015
[2/13/15] Draught at Sante Adairius Rustic Ales in Capitola. Hazy golden. Aroma of juicy fruity esters. Flavor is quite dry, fruity, with some earth and spiciness, especially in the finish. Medium-bodied. Nice.

if this is there base saison (as it was advertised) it’s easy to see why they have so many great saison/sour beers available at any given time. Bright and a little peppery, with a distinct gummy Belgian yeast. Delicious!

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUL 28, 2013
2L growler from belgianthings on BA. Traded heavy for this beast. Pours a low haze golden with buttermilk, thick, large foam. Nose is sweet apple, esters, banana. Some white pepper. Taste is juicy, savory melon, some peach. Chalky palate. Not so great. Vastly disappointing.

marcus (9231) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Pours dirty blonde with a decent beige head and a bready aroma. There is a smooth caramel malt flavor that is a bit fruity with a nice yeast presence.

Draft / pint / at the brewery with Linh. Pours a bright golden yellow body with white head. Aroma is fruit - apples & pears, light banana, spice, clove, fresh & bright yeast. Mouthfeel is medium with noticeable carbonation; notes of spice, pepper, clove, soft hop profile and some light wheat. Nice saison.

TheAlum (6991) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Bottle shared at Sean’s Tasting (Ann Arbor, MI). Pours a gentle hazed golden bright hue, touches of sunfire and frothy whitish head atop. Frothy layer stays ok sized, laces ok. Aromas present gentle tartness, bread, and straw. Mellow wheat, some yeastiness, touch of vanilla, citrus and mellow ester. Initial is lighter end of the fold, a touch of body in the middle. Bready, a touch toasty, straw. Some yeastiness, apple, some gentle tartness. Middle is a bit sweet, bready and doughy, touches of fruit and mellow earthy hops. Backend is a bit tart, vanilla, apple and subtle pear. Some citrus, yeast and straw. Mellow vanilla, almost a creaminess. Finish is a bit wheaty, fruity, vanilla and estery elements, touches of melon and straw, gumball and yeastiness. Not bad, a bit tart, a bit sweet at times for me.

bytemesis (6971) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 13, 2013
Tap. Pours hazy golden amber with a small white head and nice lacing. Aroma is lemon, yeast, banana, spices. Flavor is the same, very hefeweizenlike, actually, lightly sweet with a light zesty astringence. Light body, fine bubbly carbonation. Good, but not great.
