MrChopin (3280) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2013
murky gold, huge puffy white head. Bursting pine sugars across the nose, light crackers and peppery wheat, orange zest all over. Balanced flavor less bright, incredibly juicy and soapy with pine all over, orange bitterness stings through the lightly dusty, faintly sweet estery finish.

jredmond (5330) - Manhattan, New York, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Draft at tired hands with Linh, Angela and Minh. Pours a clear pale orange golden body with thin white lacing. Light haze. Aroma is pine and wheat. Mouthfeel is medium to crisp with a fresh, bitter pine flavor upfront, followed by wheat, Brett dryness - maybe from the cascade, pepper and rich resin character.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - OCT 25, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Nice hoppy notes in the aroma. Some grapefruit and soft citrus. Flavor is hop forward with some good Belgian yeast notes. Again, a little thin on the mouthfeel, but a nice hoppy saison overall.

GT2 (8432) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Growler thanks to MrChopin. Less than 24 hours old. Pours a pale straw with a large, white head. Nose is Belgian yeast estery, grassy hops, honeydew rind, flashes of phenols. Taste is Belgian IPA like with spicy yeast, higher hop content. Clean, light body. Nice. Typical great palate from TH but is lost in the nebulous bright, soft IPA area and saison, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

nimbleprop (4869) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 21, 2013
32oz growler pours a clear, juicy gold with some spitty, white head. Big juicy nose, tropical fruit, grass, some candy. Flavor is sweet but not sugary, tropical fruit, pineapple, candy, grass, a little herbal. Clean finish.

argo0 (11533) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Growler, thanks MrChopin. Clear apple juice body, small white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, pine/spruce, some grapefruit. Taste is moderately sweet, spruce/pine, some grapefruit, light spicy. Medium body, some resin, light acidity.

auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 20, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Gummy, banana phenolic aroma, a touch harsh. This has a grisette qualities, with dominant minerals and a lack of sweetness. A cleaner Saison body, but still a slightly medicinal quality that I find hard to enjoy, it breathes of yeast stress. The hoppiness evades me.

radagast83 (4641) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Growler shared by MrChopin, thanks! Poured a light golden color with a small, foamy white head. Aroma is very nice spicy grain notes, plenty of citrus in this one with juicy tropical fruits. Earthy spice notes, hops. Very good!

Travlr (11835) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Draft. Hazy pale yellow color. Aroma of perfumey lime, lemon, haystacks. Taste is dusty, peppery, fruity. Very nice.
