Draft at the brewery. Golden yellow pour, frothy white head. Grain, bread, lemon, peach, pear, and finishes with some earthy hops. I really like the grain profile in this, very rustic. This is good.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very good light saison. Iím a big fan of lower abv saisons, and this is a very nice example. The beer pours a yellow gold with a big white head. The aroma is mostly bright, clean malt with some vegetal and earthy notes. Itís fairly mild, but thatís no surprise in a saison of this size. The taste has a great grain flavor. All of the different grain notes blend nicely together to a pleasant, refreshing beer. Itís mildly sweet for a saison. The light yet creamy mouthfeel is the most striking aspect of the beer. Itís full and lush, particularly for the abv. Excellent beer.

Subtle sweet aroma, light golden body with thin head. Subtle bubble gum flavor due to the sweet yeast, very dry finish and slightly bitter aftertaste

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this growler.
The beer pours a light yellow color with a white head. The aroma is pretty basic saison with some wheat, yeast and lemons. The flavor is lemons, oranges, yeast and wheat. I donít get too much funk from the beer, it is more of a fruity saison. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Pretty good basic saison, though not as good as Saison Rue.

A really good saison, best from the Bruery yet, extremely dry, hints of coriander and white pepper. A good representation of style.

Served from tap into a tulip. Pours a clear golden yellow with a one finger pure white head. Maintains decent lacing throughout. The aroma was comprised of fruit, malt, and grain. The flavor was of fruit, grain, citrus, and an earthy note. It was light on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a nice saison. The last few I have had I didnít really enjoy that much due to some of the harsher flavors they impart. This one however was nice and subtle and allowed me to enjoy it without the harsh aftertaste of most I have had. Worth trying if you get the opportunity for sure.
