mansquito (3569) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 21, 2014
New Beer Distributors, NYC 750ml ($10): Pours light yellow with some haze and a white head. Aroma is nice citrus, farmhouse funk, and some nice light malts. Taste is much the same. This is a mild, but well-done saison. Nice and dry toward the finish. Easy to drink and pretty light. I liked it.

madvike (2905) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle - Pours amber with a foamy white head. Nose is dusty yeast, pear, melon, and dry, crackery malt. Taste is fruity in the same way, with dry, lightly astringent malt. Doughy yeast and pear dominate, with a light herbal hoppiness. Medium-bodied with fluffy carbonation.

Idiosynkrasie (4099) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 30, 2014
750ml bottle. Hazy yellow-ish golden colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting and lacing, white head. Fruity, floral and yeasty spicy aroma, notes of peach and orange. Taste is quite similar, cautious tartness. Resemblance to a Belgian Wit - would have guessed this to contain wheat instead of rye.

joeneugs (3493) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 14, 2014
On tap at the Beer Baron. It pours a clear gold color with a huge, thick white head. Lasting. Looks nice in the glass. The aroma is very fruity with sweet peaches and dried apricots, hints of estery yeast spice and mild florals. The flavor is full bodied with more dried fruit, floral noble hops, light dusty malts and some floral bitterness, fruit and honey in the finish. The estery yeast profile carries through to the aftertaste. Very full bodied. Pretty nice, although I prefer my Saisons a bit crisper.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2014
Gave a cloudy pour, so cloudy tan with a big head, yeasty, peppery, floral nose is classic saison. Sweet malty, pale malt, character with peppery yeast, dusty character. Good balance...sound example.
