boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Bottle from Whole Foods Devon. Pours hazy orange with a small white head that is gone very quickly. There is a lot of small carbonation bubbles in the glass. The aroma has a bit of a citrus note.. maybe lemon.. light orange? and a good bit of Belgian yeast funk. The taste is dry, funky, and has a bit of lemon zest. Good and cheap!

Borresteijn (6282) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 27, 2013
75cl Bottle, thanks Harmen! Clear deep golden colour, white head. Aroma of dry malts, light spicy, fruity esters, phenols. Flavour is medium sweet, malty, dry, sharp alcohol and fruit esters, light spicy bitter finish. Light-bodied, thin. OK beer.

AirForceHops (5971) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Draft @ Phoenixville location on 15 Oct 2012 got a 10 oz. pour. Pale, clear yellow color. Average carbonation without much head. Nose is a mild wheat, grain and light spice. Flavor fell right in line with the aroma’s. Very thin body. I don’t know, something about this just really didn’t do it for me. Either I’m missing something or I wasn’t in the mood for it. I would order the Grisette before thinking about this one. Not bad in anyway maybe I will give it another try at a later date.

DeputyAndy (636) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Draft at phoenixville. Pours a clear gold with a light white head. Buttery taste. Lingering creamy texture. Seems a little too savory for a saison.

MaBeer1972 (1749) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 12, 2012
A medium cloudy orange-yellow brew. Big frothy white head out of the bottle. Peppery-yeasty-bread-fruit aromas. Flavor is on the light side, but very interesting. Some fruit, some pepper, some citrus. Gets better toward the bottom of the bottle. Good yeasty backbone. Nice hop balance. A very tasty saison.
