swesson (232) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Poured from a bomber. Cloudy, golden body. Thin white head. Smells of yeasty, malty, clove goodness. Tastes sweet, but not as sweet as a normal saison. Lacing all the way down my pint glass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jookos (2274) - FINLAND - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle@sbwf14. Orange hazy. Citrus, with a sturdy malty backing. Bit too sturdy. Nicely bittered, balance, great beer overall. I’m not that convinced rye makes a saison better, but interesting to have tried.

Bottle. Pours cloudy orange, big white head. Good retention, some lace. Aroma of rye, dust, light brett, caramel, floral hop. Taste is quite sweet, minimal bitterness, rye, toffee, booze, toffee. Palate is sticky, slick, sweet finish. No brett, too sweet, too hot to be saison.

Gold pour. Complex aroma with brett, rye, oak, funk. The taste adds more sweet fruit and is slightly less sour than I imagined. Still very crisp and clean. Like the spice from the rye ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
