pintbypint (2593) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 27, 2013
12oz draught at Underground. 6.5% abv on the menu here. Gold colour, fairly clear but there might be some haze, not in a well lit spot. White head on top, pretty sticky foam with a tight bead. Aroma has big fruitiness, orangey, some sweetness, yeasty. Taste has more orange and citrus notes, fruity and yeasty, bit of grass and biscuit and grain. Drier end with minerals and yeast notes. Medium body, light mouthfeel. Good Saison, some interesting yeast notes.

SrSilliGose (3248) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 12, 2013
Fresh 750ml bottle. Aroma of rustic wet grass. Somewhat vegetal Play dough is a tad strange. Wet hay. Fog. Unique. Effervescent. Taste is wild flowers and wet rustic grass. Kind of biere de garde esque. Some pleasant grassy hops. Complex. Quite rustic. Neat. Like.

Erasmus_ro (1312) - Alabama, USA - MAR 24, 2013
UPDATED: APR 5, 2013 6,5% ABV 33cl bottle. Pours an orange amber with a white blanket of a head. Aroma is light. Fruity with peach, pear and apricot, slightly yeast. Taste is fairly sweet with caramel and the aforementioned fruits. Strongly peach and apricot as well as pear, fermented and otherwise. Dries up with herbalness and spiciness. Palate is quite full with strong carbonation. Better pour aggressively. More of a Belgian ale than a saison to my taste, but that all depends on where exactly one draws the line.
