FunkyBrewster (1517) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Can. Pours very light pale hazy yellow with a billowy white head. Aroma is a touch gummy with wheat, some light citrus and hints of spice coming through. A touch peppery and lemony. Flavor starts with a bursting citrus character, quite hoppier than expected but it a good way, giving way to the lighter spice and doughy notes in a clean crisp finish. Light to medium body and a crisp carbonation. Excellent "americanized" version of the style without being all hops.

ContemplateBeer (1436) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 19, 2014
Aroma: Pre-prohibition? Really had a funkiness not unlike a Saison. Otherwise, a little herbal with a touch of honey. Appearance: Slightly cloudy light gold with a foamy white head. Flavor: Matches the nose. Palate: Light body, slick texture, soft carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Overall: Quite good, but kinda wondering if I was drinking the right beer.

Nice, especially for something with rice and corn. Nice bitter hay feel. Golden pour. Bitter finish. Well rounded, good balance. Tap at RFD.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1340) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 18, 2014
Can at the Stillwater event at dig bar. A slightly cloudy straw gold pour with a big foamy head that leaves behind good lacing. Fruity funky saison yeast notes in the nose. Zesty soft carbonation, ascerbic mouth puckeringly bitter, saison spice, some citrus & a dry bitter finish. At first I got some metallic notes but the second time around not so much. Solid. Served in an aroma glass at Rome temperature. It has a more grassy spicy aroma with the classic saison nose. A light zesty body with an ascerbic mouthfeel, mild metallic notes, spices, quite tasty stuff. Lots of flavor for the low ABV. This beer grew on me.

chinchill (1380) - South Carolina, USA - APR 17, 2014
12 oz can. Canned(?) date stamped on the bottom of August(?) 2013. Pours pale golden-yellow; hazy; very good head. Aroma: banana, bubblegum, green tomato ... thereís more, and in total it is much nicer than this mix sounds. Flavor: some Belgian notes; like nose; no musk or funk. Feel: very clean, especially for style O: Another excellent canned beer.

jonnyguns (800) - AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2014
Can from mane liquor. Nose is quite floral with light toffee malts, zesty lemon and Belgium yeast. Taste is super clean - nice Belgium yeast coming through with floral hops. Hints of lemon zest. Sessionable saison straight from the can! Good stuff! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz can picked up at the COOP a month back.. pours clear straw golden.. white head with flecks in the pillow. Big phenolic bubblegum and minor clove and peppercorn.. white wheat.. green apple esters. Flavor is nicely done with the lower ABV... clovey phenols and grassy/lemon hops mesh a fermented out pale malt essence.. big carbonation.. still pretty drinkable... The low ABV is special, I would like to see this more often in the coolers.

troyc (2214) - Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2014
[Tap] Light orange in color with a slight haze to it. Nice pillow of white foam head. Lemon zest, lime and light yeast/funky nose. Light breads, corn flakes, lemongrass and light spiciness. I realized that I wrote ílightí many times in this review, and that pretty much sums it up. Itís all right. Tasting notes from 1/2014.

maneliquor (2786) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2014
UPDATED: APR 16, 2014 Can from Mane Liquor. Gets perfect appearance caus the can looks epic. Nose is full of sweet Belgian yeast, banana, mango and mild grass. Itís like a hop loaded Belgian ale. Loads if mango and banana with heavy zest and Belgian yeast. A touch biscuity with mild herbal notes and lemony bitterness. Goes down an absolute treat. So clean and refreshing. I can see it possibly getting a touch sweet but works well as something other than an IPA in a can. Tasty beverage

rumproasts (2588) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2014
can. Golden yellow with one finger head. Dry with citrus, particularly lemon. Slight funk and a bit of a hoppy bite. Light, but with excellent flavor.

Davros (1806) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 6, 2014
Pours yellow with a quickly fading head. Nose shows some Belgian yeast, some farmhouse funky notes, soft vegetal hints and banana. Some of the Belgian and farmhouse notes remain as flavours along with a corn note and apple characters. Carbonation is a bit excessive.
