Draft. Supremely boozy said on. I like its high-octane nature nonetheless. Solid brewskie.

DuffMan (7030) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 21, 2014
Bottle, shared around the table at Revolution Brewpub. Very hazy pale yellow, thick lasting white head. Bright and lemony, yeasty, lightly spicy. I thought this was a great saison.

TheAlum (5909) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Draft on tap at the brewery (Naperville, IL). Pours a richer glowing hazy golden hue, some honey deeper darkness, haze, big cakey offwhite head cakes big, laces ok. Aromsa are gentle spice, yeast, and doughy sweetness. Apple, pear, gentle growing earthy hop bitterness. More spice, orange rind, and cereal elements, dough. Initial is medium bodied, preaching a lively white peach, apple, pear, lemon, grapefruit feel up front. Some spice, florals, and fuzzy peach. Middle grives more yeast, spice, doughy and cereal malts, bread. Dryness still remains on the palate, dough, apple, pear sweet fruit elements. Backend and finish remains a bit spicy, doughy, mellow cereal sweet. Tart fruit, orange, rind, spicy yeast, doughy sweet and bready malts keep on in finish, a firm hop load, lingers on a bit of tart, citrus, fruit, dough. Pretty solid, fruity, dry and bittter nice hop profile for how big it is. I liked this. Kinda in a similar wheelhouse to the FFF Zes Zes Zes offering that is also out.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 11, 2014
22oz bottle from the brewery. Hazy unfiltered orange-yellow. Big, foamy white head. Says 8.3% on the bottle. This is pretty nice, exceeding my expectations. Kind of bridges the gap between massive Belgian Golden Ale and Saison. The yeast is restrained but still flavorful. Really balanced out well. My bottle is a 4-5 months old, so not sure how the hops have evolved. Very nice.

HonkeyBra (3528) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2014
22 oz. bomber. Pours a hazed golden color with a medium, fading white head. Aroma of bread dough, citrus, mild lemon, some earth and hay notes. Flavor is quite hoppy and bitter, mild earth, some fruit and doughy malts. Fairly hop forward for a saison. Medium bodied, effervescent carbonation, finishes dry and bitter. This is nice.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Draft at Belgian Fest. Pours a deep gold with a sticky white head. light haze. The nose is softly Belgian and fruity. White pepper and rubber. Faint pils malt, hopping seems low. Alcohol is noted. On tasting, quite fruity with more of the rubbery notes. A firm bitterness is there but the yeast is distracting, drying it out with some astringency. Light bready grain notes and some hops on finish. Okay.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2012
on tap at bangers for the takeover event. quick rate... pours a hazy golden orangey brown hue, mostly non-transparent but allowing some light to pass through. topped with a thin soapy white head...aroma of semi-juicy citrus esthers that pair beside that belgian yeast predominancy that i found present in a number of their brews from this evening. fairly clean and straightforward... flavors are more of the same with a sweetness throughout without a corresponding dryness on the backend. belgian yeast, bananas, and citrus notes for the most part. medium to just above that with adequate carbonation. ok.
