Fatehunter (1951) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Poured into a tulip glass. Lots of head... three or four fingers. I tried a different glass with an even slower pour with the same result. It’s a hazy, golden color. Smells like honey, a flower bouquet, lemon and apricot. Light malt taste with accompanying sweetness, ripe fruit (apricot and plum). Lots of bubbles, crisp and smooth with medium body. Besides all the foam in the pour it’s a great beer. Bright and fruity, but not a fruit beer.

UXO (1128) - CANADA - FEB 4, 2016
Appearance: slightly hazy pale gold with a short, short-lived white head diminishing rapidly to nothing, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: stone fruit, apples, grassy funk, bready yeast. (7/10) Taste: moderate-low sweet, mild bitter, mild tart. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-high carbonation, bone dry moderate bitter and mild tart finish. (3/5) Not sure what the relationship is between this and Cellar Door, but in my opinion this suffered by comparison to Cellar Door. It’s still a nice saison, but doesn’t have the depth and complexity of Cellar Door. The finish is also dryer but a bit harsher, and on the whole it just doesn’t feel as well put together. Good, not great. (14/20)

Pours a cloudy yellow golden color with fizzy white head. Citrus, coriander, other spice, yeast/bread and some light floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes with wheat and coriander.

kidmartinek (4161) - austin, Texas, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Draught at TAP in Mong Kok. Pours hazy copper. Thick white ring head. Complicated aroma, very fruity and creamy. Medium palate. Tastes like dessert, not a saison, which is usually thin, dry and peppery.

onceblind (6379) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 29, 2015
Cloudy golden with a thin sticky white head. Lovely grassy and herbal hop aroma mixed with a crisp little saison malt profile. Clean and bright flavor with some nuanced herbal bitterness, clean saison mealtimes, a touch of Belgian funk, a little grassy citrus, and a dryish Belgian estery finish with a whisper more of grassy floral hops. Really unique and complex.

Cristobal37 (534) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 27, 2015
Yeasty herbal vegetable garden aroma. Very malty at first then comes the expected citrus and bitter orange rind. Pleasant and light. Much more targeted for a summer day than winter night but very refreshing and tasty.

Tognetta (531) - Campinas, BRAZIL - OCT 27, 2015
Alaranjada, boa formação de espuma e persistência. Aroma de frutas tropicais amarelas, levemente acida e adocicads, mel. Paladar bem distribuído entre a acidez e dulçor. Corpo leve e média/alta carbonatação. Aftertaste lembra a mel, sensação prazerosa carbonatada, final levemente seco e lupulado.

tightslice (707) - Redwood City, California, USA - OCT 26, 2015
On tap at Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is slight floral, must, coriander, light banana. Taste is citrus rinds, some floral spice and mild sweetness. Might be a tad too much floral / potpourri for me, but a good stateside saison!
