NICU (12) - Oregon, USA - JUN 15, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2007 Goddamn this is good. Just the thought of a saison in a can makes me giddy. Could anyone conceive a better summer beer? I poured it into a Duvel tulip because as much as I like the idea, Iíd rather not drink it straight from the can...

Aroma is mostly bubblegum and spice, which doesnít sound that appetizing, but it brought a smile to my face as soon as I opened the can and poured the coppery liquid into my glass. (WTF, a can?!?)

Flavors of wheat, spice, and light bready malt mingle happily on the tongue. The finish leaves a trace of candi sugar sweetness and clove/coriander spice mixed with a bit of noble hop spiciness in the far corners of my mouth.

Hey Omar! Please, please send this beer to Oregon. Ever since the local distributor dropped Oskar Blues Iíve been hurting for good canned beer to take camping. Please?!?!?!

Rerate 45 minutes later: I forgot about my glass while surfing the intraweb. Now that itís fully up to room temp it has a much more peppery, almost smoky flavor to it.. Very nice lingering pepper/hop bite that seems to rise out of nowhere and stick to the corners my mind...

I repeat. PLEASE bring this to Portland!

@ Mikkeller Stockholm 14-11-8: en ganska enkel öl utan större smak. Tyvärr. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Poured from can into tulip. Translucent orangey- gold with thin sticky white head. Smell has yeast, light fruit, a little funk. Taste is spicy, fruity, maybe a little earthy, but not overly intense. Feel is very slightly fizzy, kind of light. Overall, a mild, very drinkable example of the style. Not my favorite type of brew, but this one is pretty good for what it is.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2331) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 4, 2014
On tap at Dry Hop. It poured a clear light copper. Light malty bitter aroma, the flavor is malty, light spices and quite tasty. Once it warmed up you got more zesty saison like flavors - solid.

16oz can from Four Firkins with a 7/28/14 date. Golden pour. Aroma consists of straw and spices, with belgian-y yeastyness. Taste follows ... light fruit, spices, grapes, sweet pale malts and straw, with candied sugar. Was trying to figure out why never rated this brew while sure Iíve had it, but now I know why - not a favorite style and such a belgian-y version. Did they mix up batches with their first belgian ale? 12.7
