Tasted like a traditional saison to me, a very good one. Pours cloudy yellow with large head. Aroma is grassy and earthy, palate is dry, grassy with light citrus and a slightly bitter dry finish. Good saison.

mansquito (3416) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Max’s Taphouse, Baltimore tap: Pours a light orange with a white head. Aroma was mostly saison yeast and fruitiness. The smokiness is faint if even at all there. Taste is much the same. The familiar yeast of Stillwater makes its mark. This is a nice and refreshing saison, but it doesn’t clinch what it was going for in my opinion.
