Pours a hazy, barely translucent apricot with a thick and fairly persistent white head that leaves good lacing. Strong, fruity aroma has yeasty and sour hints plus a bit of malt. Sour, woody, and fruity notes make a nice flavor trinity, with a malty undertone. Creamy texture has some good fizz. For the free spirit within us all!

Bottle from Hop City. Drinking in honor of JHeath99’s bday. Cloudy amber with frothy white head. Very floral, hoppy aroma. Tastes of citrus and bitter hops. Leaves a tingling on my tongue, with a citrus aftertaste. Decent beer.

Bottle from Growler Spot. Pours a hazy golden with a thick layer of off white head. Aroma of yeast and spice. Taste same but overly carbonated.

I’m going to put this rate here so if it needs to be moved someone remind me. Collab between terrapin, 3 taverns and 8 wired. Nice full bodied spicey aroma. Subtle tropical hops are what made this beer jump into another category for me. Good balance with Belgian yeast and otherwise a solid saison.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2014 Pours a hazy golden orange from the bottle with quickly dissipating white head that leaves minimal lace. Aroma is funky farmhouse saison yeast with a nice malty background, a hint of oxidation. Taste is like a caramel malt and saison medley with a nice bubbly mouth, good residual carbonation. Nice beer, we?ll see if it ages any better. Holy shit, way better fresh.

Bottle shared by brew3crew. Pours a hazy orange golden color with a small white head. The aroma had herbal and grassy hops, candy sweetness, sweet malts, juicy citrus. The flavor had much of the same; sweet, herbal, grass, some bready malt. The flavor kind of fell off toward the finish.

Butters (3983) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Sampled from a bomber at the end of the evening shared by an great guy at RRVF2013. Pours a clear golden hue with a ring of offwhite head. Primary notes of honeysuckle, and grass. But it also had a distinct aroma note that is identical to the way that Oscar the Grouch smelled in the Seasame Street Scratch-n-Sniff picture book I had when I was 6 years old. Funny, the things you remember from childhood... Anyways, the beer was quite tasty, but hearing the tragic story behind it is even more moving. My thoughts go out to the families.

AmEricanbrew (6451) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Hazy golden and orange color with ivory sheen. Dusty pale malt, spicy hop, light berry fruit aromas. Smooth mouthfeel. Nice herbal, spicy coriander flavors with dusty pale malt, and a light berry sweetness--tasty saison.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 20, 2012
On tap at Tyler’s, Durham. Fairly attractive pour, a semi-cloudy medium gold that was well carbonated and had decent lacing. Nose was mildly herbal, quite bready for the most part. Mouthfeel moderately playful, not much of a yeasty, herbal bite on the palate like I enjoy with the style. Flavors were very indistinct, bready and malt-forward without much other character.
