My personal opinion is that this is a very nice example of this style, better than some more well known examples. Wish I had more in the cellar.

Aroma is light to moderate malty, pale malt, moderate yeasty, leather, funky, fruit, saison yeast. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and light to moderate bitter with a long duration, saison yeast, fruity, peppery notes. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20120727]

jgb9348 (4851) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Super hazy golden coloured body with a soapy, full white head, about three centimetres tall. Aroma of yeast, pepper, coriander seed, curacao, alcohol and tons of hay and grass. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and wheat flavours throughout with a bunch of pepper and clove flavours tucked in with some herbes de provence, lavender and sage, all with a very nice glow of yeast and wheat. Aftertaste is quite complex as well with the spices ranging from white pepper to oregano back to coriander seed and even some allspice. Overall, a very nice saison with tons of flavours from hay and grass notes to the obligatory spice notes. A great beer to sample - very nice to find and I wish I could have sampled them all! I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Bacchus Cornelius in Bruges, Belgiuim on 14-August-2013 for €2,50 sampled in my hotel room here in Luxembourg City, Luxembourg on 16-August-2013.

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The aroma is a hazy, milky yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of wheat, yeast and peaches. The flavor is a bit more complex. I get some brett and light funk notes as well as some peaches, Belgian yeast and wheat. Nice, light tartness in this saison. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

bartlebier (1977) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAY 28, 2013
Bottle pour@Day2, 4th Festival der Bierkulturen Köln 26/05/2013.
Burnt rubber, off hop notes, intense unpure brett (doppelmoppel). Grass hop bitter. Yet oddly, fringe enjoyable. What swallowed all that beautiful Cascade?
