wedgie9 (1792) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Tasted on 10/23/12 from a capped 750mL bottle. Pours hazy but bright orange with a thick off-white head that slowly recedes to thick lace that clings to the side of the glass. The nose is spicy saison yeast with some nice bread and caramel malt, along with floral and grapefruit peel hops. The flavor is a bit more malt forward than expected with the spicy yeast and floral/citrus hops melding together very nicely. The body is medium with very lively, stinging carbonation, and a long citrus hops and spicy yeast finish.

Bottle at the Stillwater at Dig Bar. These saisons should really hit the spot this summer. This pours a crystal clear gold with a nice head of foam. Probably clearer than either the Classique or Why Can’t IBU. It has more of a fruity Belgian blonde aroma while the taste is fruity, zesty with tons of spicy estery goodness. Really nice, my favorite of the night. He truly has a saison to suit every taste.

superspak (2203) - Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2014
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 9/4/2013. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy bright gold color with a 3 finger dense and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon zest, tangerine, orange peel, pear, apple, black pepper, clove, straw, grass, herbal, floral, light bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast ester, hops, and light-moderate malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big lemon zest, tangerine, orange peel, pear, apple, black pepper, clove, straw, grass, herbal, floral, bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Good amount of yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, tangerine, orange peel, pear, apple, black pepper, clove, straw, grass, floral, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity of fruity/spicy yeast ester, hops, and moderate malt flavors; with a great yeast/hop flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent saison! All around great complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, hops, and moderate malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Minderbinder (1584) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2014
Bottle 355ml. Pours blond with very high frothy white head. Lots of bubbles. Good lacing. Aroma is of citrus, grain, saison yeast. Taste is of saison yeast, citrus, malt, sugar, fruits, slight alcohol. Palate: Quite heavy carbonation. Light-medium body (hard to say with all that carbonation). Good balance. Overall: Nice yeast action. Pretty nice beer. Only flaw is the heavy carbonation. Don’t think it’s supposed to be like this. Very belgian.

rumproasts (2586) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2014
bottle. Slightly hazy golden with small head. It’s a fine saison, but it does hit me as a bit dull on the palate. There’s a nice funky yeastiness, but just a hint of some tartness would really help this be outstanding.

From a bottle. It may have been a little long in the tooth, but it’s still tasty. Good peppery taste, round but refreshing

Oakes (11797) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2014
Blonde, hazy thin head. Yeasty, fruity (apple, apricot). Complex and dry, spicy, clean pale malt with a touch of biscuity notes, really good saison, balanced, authentic.

hockeybeerguy (909) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a hazy yet clear yellow/golden body with some noticeable carbonation seen rising, two finger white foamy head rises and then falls leaving some nice foamy clingy lacing gracing the sides of the glass. The smell was a sour yet funky but also muted musty maltiness combined with some citrus, light hops. The taste was a spicy yet sour yet funky through the esters, clove, and hops, sweet yeasty aftertaste, sticky finish. On the palate, it sat at/about a light, mostly sessionable, carbonation is spot on. Overall, what another nicely done saison that I would gladly have again if I could.

12oz bottle shared. Pours a medium hazy yellow with a big white head. Aroma is mild funk and citrus. Lots if carbonation. Some spice notes as well. The flavor is about the same. I get some fruit notes like apples in this. Very good all the way around.

ClarkVV (3860) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Draught at Three Penny Taproom, 3/16/14
Deep golden yellow body has a small but fairly well-retained white head. Clarity is medium high to high.
Restrained alpha hoppiness in the nose has only moderate citrus character and allows the saison yeast to shine pretty well, adding plentiful yellow fruit-like esters that mix with the hops to produce the pretty standard tropical fruit nose we’ve all come to know and love from this style. Fresh, floral and clean with snappy phenols keeping things quite dry and malt adding only a light honey-vanilla suggestion.
Very fluffy in the mouth with tons of carbonation giving a very airy palate. The malt, though nicely attenuated, does do its best to add a supple body/texture. Hop flavors swim about on the tongue ranging from lemon and orange rind to some grassy/herbal bitterness. Ends crisp, somewhat bitter and with no flaws or alcohol. Really nice, easy drinking, clean, not over-hopped Belgian here.

Rustyham (1711) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Very active bubbles, slight pinkish hue. Slight fruity corny aroma. Some flora laity. A VERY champagne like flavor. Sweet and dry at the same time. Warm aftertaste
