Poured from a 12 oz (355 ml) can: beautiful straw yellow color with a full head of foam. Carbonation jumping. Strong smell of lemongrass and clove, with a hint of banana upon first smell. Light-bodied and watery on the palate with a dry finish. Taste is pepper-forward with hints of citrus, especially lemon zest. Nice saison.

Pours corn & butter yellow with a gorgeous one finger cap. Carbonation is popping, you can see one column of fizz giving up its ghost from the bottom of the glass. Flavour is lemon meets saltwater. Picked this out of the fridge at the Only Cafe. Workable saison.

Muggus69 (1409) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 30, 2015
355mL can PKGD 6/16/14 Hazy straw beer, holds a creamy white head. Subdued aroma; husky cereal malts, clove & pepper spicy phenolics, touch of overly ripe pear & citrus. Medium body, decent carbonation, dries out a lot, seemingly well-attenuated. Mild on the body; cereals, hay, earthy spice, pepper, ripe pomme fruits & citrus rind. Dry finish, moderate bitterness. Very different - somewhere between a Saison & Witbier, actually a bit reminiscent of a Coopers beer.

Luvystypotables (965) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Aroma of Belgian yeast and lemon, pours a pale straw color with moderate carbonation. Tastes like a sour with hints of lemon, dry feel with a slightly chalky finish.

Lubiere (10846) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2015
A hazed yellow beer with a thick receding frothy white head. In aroma, pleasant grassy malt, no corn, light Brett, herbaceous hops, very nice and saison like. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity malt with light silky character, grassy hops, very nice, and well maintained in the can after 2 years. 2.99 a can in Brooklyn.

Rustyham (1781) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Very old world, dry and bitter flavor. Floral and old-world tasting, but still very light and simple. Quite good. Very deep but not heavy at all.

jlruthven (587) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Can. Hazy gold appearance; turbid. Grainy, hoppy nose, with some lemongrass, hay and flint. Soft but active carbonation, goes down crazy easy. Great anytime beer.

jbrana (551) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - JAN 18, 2015
I found this too be a disappointing saison. It was very dry and peppery without any hints of lemon, botanical, or breadiness. The typical saison bubblegum / banana flavors were very muted on this one as well.

Craft Islington. Keg. Lightly hazy pale gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and crisp and semi dry. Light pale malts and light floralness. Herby streak. Mild tangy dried fruits. Little ester. Everything about this says Saison. Light crisp finish brings a little tangy orange peel. Not bad.
