Sammy (9986) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2008
The smell is a bit barnyard, with lots of malt behind it. The taste, from a medium plus mouthfeel,is hoppy and mildly spicey, and is a bit astringent in the finish.Drinkable though not best of style.Orange with off-white head.

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Tap at CK thanks to craftycarl21! Good foam. Sweet pear nose. Estery, bright, mild diaper phenols. Taste is juicy, clean pear. Nice dough and honey bread. Very good. Sweeter saison, could use more hop balance. Still, pretty nice.

Hazy bright golden colour with a thick pillowy white head. Sweet spicy/yeasty aroma with a touch of sweatiness underneath it. Earthy and dusty. Coriander spiciness, orange peel and apple skins all make an appearance here. Spicy wheatiness that is particularly appealing. Flavour is fantastically dry with a spicy yeastiness underlying a soft flowery and wheaty flavour. A bit of lingering hop flavour makes its presence known as the temperature comes up a bit. Light lime citrus and green peppercorns all contribute to making this one of the tastiest saisons I’ve come across. Gorgeous brew.

deyholla (8902) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Bottle shared by Kyle at the Winter Solstice. Poured a pale gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of floral and fruit with a backing yeast and grain note. Flavor was similar with floral, fruit and sweet grain coming through with a bit of soap in the finish.

DLD ’11. Poured hazy yellowish orange with nice fluffy white head, aroma had notes of bananas and clove, some fruity esters with earth, touch of barnyard, some wood and grass notes. Taste was nice and full bodied, touch of spicy yeast with notes of grass, bananas, fruit, and some grassy noble hops in the finish, nice and dry.

3fourths (8801) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Sample from a bottle. Light yellow in color and cloudy in appearance with a soft white head. Weird nose of grain and spice, a but floral, but not really peppery or exciting at all, more of a herb-like spice note. Oily texture up front, lightly drying in the back, which is nice enough, but flavor-wise it comes across perfume-heavy and green, with a distinct oily vegetable note throughout. Okay overall, but a little weird and a little too green.
