Cloudy yellow pour, pure white head. Nose is tropical fruit and yeast. Sweet. Middle is creamy malt, pineapple & mango. Finish is a little flat, but still pleasantly sweet.

Served on draft. Excellent mouth. Dry as a saison should be with a silky mouth, but could he a bit more crisp. Barnyard funk and sour oranges on the nose. Good mineral quality to the beer (they gypsumed the hell out of this one). Strong wheaty, bitter taste with some citrus notes. Overall, fantastic saison. The barnyard funk is strong with this one. If I didn’t know this was a Sixpoint beer, I wouldn’t have thought it was domestic. Best new saison I’ve had in a while.

I really like this saison for its unique and powerful yeast-character. It’s dry, golden with only a slight haze, and has minimal head but nice lacing. The yeasty spiciness and breadiness really comes through with a soft lingering on the back end. It’s great!

Lukaduke (2045) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 17, 2013
On draft at Nosh. Pours a hazy blondish gold with a finger of fizzy foam. On the nose its peppery, earthy yeast and light malt profile. The palate follows the nose... nothing very special but a decent take on the saison style. Would like a little more complexity in the yeast profile but the spice is well balanced and the mouthfeel is dialed in nicely.

odinstyr (559) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Pours a hazy amber with a minimal white head. Smells of barnyard, plums, sourdough bread. Taste is sour and sweet, minimally bitter - Belgian yeasts, spices, hint of fruitiness.

Poured at Sixpoint tasting at Whole Foods Bowery Beer Room in NYC today. Poured a fairly clear gold with white head. Some citrus and yeast notes in both the aroma and taste. A smooth, drinkable, but average saison.

Tmoney99 (10455) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Tap. Poured a clear golden color with an average fizzy frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate dough, citrus and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium yeast sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a friend.

Heathen (1458) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 22, 2012
THOUGHTS: A little more watered down than most saisons today so maybe it’s a little closer to the original saisons of the past. As it warmed the flavors erupted but it was still fairly light. TECHNICAL: Unlabeled bottle from the brewery as part of prize pack. Poured a hazy, light to medium yellow with great carbonation and a gigantic, rocky, white head that nearly filled the glass and mostly diminished but extremely slow leaving excellent lacing. The aroma had light light-colored bread and pale malt; light herbal and grassy hops; light doughy, sweaty, leather, spicy, and peppery yeast; slight barnyard and funky yeast; light banana; and lemon. The initial flavor was moderately acidic, slightly sour and ever so slightly sweet; while the finish was moderate to heavily acidic and slightly sour with an average to long duration. There was pepper, lemon, lots of yeast, sour fruit, metallic and herbal hops, grassy hops, perfume hops, other spices and slight funk. The light to medium body was very dry with very fizzy carbonation and a dry and slightly astringent finish.

Draft at blue monk, decen Saison, grassy notes good amount of spice. A little off kilter in the balance. Decent flavor, better than advertised
