Cunningham (5154) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 25, 2014
Appearance: Pale golden color with a white head.
Aroma: Mild fruity, mild citric and some yeast.
Palate: Medium body. Tad sweet, and a moderate bitterness. Flat (due to a punctured can fixed with electrician tape) carbonation.
Taste: Citric, yeast, fruity and a mild malty back.
Overall impression: Nice fresh thirst quencher. Think this would have been very nice with proper carbonation.
Personal stats: Can from a trade with Gunnar

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2013
On tap at Pizzeria Paradiso in Old Town during the Stillwater tap takeover event. Pours a somewhat cloudy pale yellow color. Nice nose with a bit of corn and wheat alongside a mild take of saison spice. Floral, spicy, hay. Flavor is similar with a smooth bitterness. Tastes like young Premium. Really nice and will be an amazing warm weather beer.

Boutip (4995) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle: Poured a light yellow color ale with a large pure white bubbly head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of light rustic malt notes with some dry hoppy notes. Taste is also dominated by rustic malt notes with light dry ester and some bready yeast notes are also noticeable. Body is light with great carbonation. Very much enjoyable if maybe a bit short on the complexity notes with great drinkability level.

Beerman6686 (4979) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2014
This poured a golden yellow with a white head. Aroma.was of.crowne, grassy and.citrus hops. Flavor sweeter, grassy hops, similar but cleaner than an American lager.

onceblind (4965) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Light gold with brilliant clarity, until the bottom of the can enters the glass, then it gets that yeasty haze. Big persistent foamy white head. Smells lovely with lemon rind, hay, tangerine sweetness, pilsner malts, and a certain hoppy dustiness thats also just a wee touch resiny. Semi-full flavored with a bright grainy sweetness on the front, a touch of toast, some lemon zest, a bit of tropical resin and sweetness, finishing on a semi-dry hay and barn note. Fast finish. Like a cross between a modern saison and a good quality lager.

jgb9348 (4943) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Slightly cloudy golden coloured body with a rich, dense, three to four centimetre tall pure white head. Aroma of very light hops, hay, grass, herbs and a bit of sugar. Light-bodied; Sharp light malt flavour with cardboard and grain with very little else on the body, just a big dose of strong hops, hay, grass and a bit of wheat. Aftertaste shows just the hops, grass and hay with a touch of sugar at the tail end. Overall, a very interesting beer - smells great, and the first few tastes are good, but then you realise there is no body and no depth at all. Still, not a bad beer, but just not amazing - great to sample and neat to try this based on the malt profile. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon (not even local to me/brewery) on 27-September-2013 for US$2.38 sampled at home in Washington on 07-October-2013.

solidfunk (4782) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 18, 2014
Nice, especially for something with rice and corn. Nice bitter hay feel. Golden pour. Bitter finish. Well rounded, good balance. Tap at RFD.

TomDecapolis (4590) - Milton, Delaware, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Pours a lightly hazy golden with a large foamy white head that left sticky lacing. Aroma of spicy saison yeast, lots of citrusy hop notes some floral and tropical fruits. Smells like a hoppy saison. Flavor of honey, corn, very dry, some bubblegum and spicy saison notes. The citrusy hop notes as there but not as prominent as they are in the nose.

vyvvy (4469) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Pours light pale yellow with a sturdy white head. The aroma has fruity Belgian traits, mild sweetness, grapes, apricot, bubblegum and light funk. Light crisp refreshing body with a bit of lively carbonation. The flavor starts with mild maltiness, apriocots/peaches, spice, earth, bugs and some cellar must. The finish has lots of pepperiness, brett-like bugginess and a thrist quenching snappiness. It would be real easy to drink a lot of these & at 4.5% I can’t do it without running into trouble quickly. Another winner from Stillwater. Love that this is now in 6 pack cans instead of the everything being in bombers.
