Awesome session table saison. Very refreshing and crisp with peppery spices, wheat, lemon, and some musty sulfuric yeast note(not in an overpowering or bad way if that makes any sense) Loved it.

Served on-tap at the brewery. A - Pours pale yellow with a nice one finger tall white head leaving spotty streaks of lace down parts of the glass. S - Smells of must - not overly funky - light fruity notes, dulled citrus, some candied sugar, some peppery spice and a good bit of bready wheat / grain. Nothing over the top here, just a solid saison nose. T - The flavors closely follow the nose. Starts off with a mix of musty funk and chewy grains quickly giving way to hints of apples, pears and light citric fruit. A nice spice note comes through toward the end of each sip, making me want to come back for more. M - Nice light flavors with a crisp feel. Some graininess toward the end of each sip but thats about it. Quite refreshing on these hot days we have been having. O - This is a great classic saison. Unlike others, there is no need to add things to distract from the base when the base is this good. I can tell that this is going to be one of my go to beers at the brewery.

Damico (2680) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2012
Pours clrarer golden with a light orange hue and bright white head. The aroma brings a bit of Belgian yeast and sweet saison like malts. The rye flavor begins of front and then ligth sweet malt notes come in and a dryness as well with the citrus and black pepper.

Pours a really pale yellow. Aroma of funky yeast, citrus and pepper. Taste follows. So light and smooth, yet so flavorful. Another win by this great new brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Growler shared by yourefragile. Thanks! Pours a hazy straw color with a thin head. Fair head retention. Aroma of sweet grains, nutty notes and herbal hops. The taste is herbal and spicy with tropical fruits and an almost spruce-like note. Medium bodied. Nice.

JAXSON (529) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Draft at the brewery. Pours cloudy pale yellow with a medium white head. Nose is wheat grains, eggy and sulfiric, light citrus. Mouth is lightly bitter, wheat, estery yeast. Kind of a saison/hefeweissen hybrid though a little too eggy for me to really get into.
