Cloudy yellow pour with a big white head. Aroma is lemon peel, spicy funk, hay, maybe a bit of biscuit? Flavor is lemon and yeasty spice but the mouthfeel is amazingly smooth. This was a good beer.

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2011
Corked and caged 750. Pours a dingy and light gold with a pretty massive frothy head that slowly recedes and leaves the sides of the glass covered in a thick layer of white foam. Aromas are pretty pungent… lots of lemony fruitiness with a little farmyard and a light spiciness. I’m enticed, but first sip is pretty betraying. It has suddenly morphed into something nearly cloying… like Lemon Drop candy or over-sweetened lemonade. The mouthfeel is kind of sticky and it sits heavily on the palate. If I pay real close attention, I can pick up a little of that funk that came through so strongly in the nose, but for the most part this seems like a miss. Way to sweet and not nearly dry enough for my tastes.

Dfonorow (1420) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2011
Pours light orange to amber in color with a thick white head. Aroma is heavy on the citrus and very sweet. Flavor is filled with fruit such as oranges, bananas, pears. Touch of bitterness and hops in the finish.

rajendra82 (952) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - APR 11, 2011
The pour was pale amber in color, and the body underneath the four finger thick foamy head was very cloudy. The smell was biscuit like, citric, and floral, all characteristic of a rustic character. The taste was lemon juice, saltine cracker crust, and coriander. From the start to finish, this beer was extremely dry. This was basically summer sunshine liquefied, and packaged for consumption. The airy body was like a stiff sea breeze in my face. What a joyful expression of the art of brewing. Seemingly simple as you taste it, but that is because it is so meticulously crafted to hide artificiality.

Bottle thanks to Brooha. Pours cloudy yellow gold with white head. Nose of yeast, ripe fruits, basement funk and orange rind. Taste is the same with a nice lemon zest finish. Nice full mouth feel.

bbbeer (586) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 18, 2011
Cloudy yellow with ridiculous head. Aroma tropical citrus fruit, grass. Medium body, some carbonation but not overdoing it. Flavor is mostly fruity, some yeast, wheat, spices, nice dry finish. Not bad although wouldn’t go hunting for it.

Cybercat (3277) - Georgia, USA - MAR 11, 2011
Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a very thick but quickly dissipating off-white head - not too appealing, but appearance isn’t everything. Aroma is strong and fruity, the latter being mainly pear and banana, with a hint of yeast. Refreshing flavor is mainly fruity, again pear and banana mostly, with tones of malt and yeast, a sweet citrus hint, and just a whisper of hops. Texture is fairly smooth yet strongly fizzy, leaving behind a tingly, fruity finish.

lamas (1355) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 5, 2011
750mL bottle. Best by: 12/10/14. A hazy glowing gold pour with a MASSIVE meringue-like off-white head that leaves chunks of lacing behind. A semi-funky aroma that features quite a bit of pepper, some citrus fruits & rinds, bananas, cloves, and some wheatiness. Medium-bodied and kinda creamy in some places and crisp in others. A sweet/tangy start taste-wise with some cantaloupe, honey, Mandarin oranges, and bananas. The finish is dry and wheaty with plenty of lemony zest. Musty, yeasty, and plenty of spiciness (white pepper and hints of clove) throughout. A solid saison.
