drsandman (1035) - New York, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle from brewery. Pours a clear pale yellow, big white head fat bubbles. Aroma is pear, moldy peach, yeast, banana, sweet malt. Flavor is clean pale sweet malt, migrating to light bitter hop & booze on the back end. Nice fruity refreshing saison.

ben4321 (5646) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 22, 2016
750 ml bottle from Sparrow, 7/22/16. Pours an unclear golden-orange with a large, fizzy froth of off-white head and some drippy lace. Lots of spice and yeast, pepper, earth, some lemongrass, and a little peach. Nice overall mix of flavors here. Slightly overly carbonated, but otherwise it drinks pretty nicely. Finishes a little dry. Another quality yeast forward beer from Transmitter.

Sample at the brewery. Pours a lightly hazed gold with a medium sized white head. Soft musk, light wheat. Medium, soft musk, light wheat. Gentle musk, light wheat. Musk into the finish, nice yeast character.

jc1762 (643) - Washington DC, USA - APR 30, 2016
Poured into a shaker showing well filtered yellow with sparse white foam. The nose shows light apples and sweet malts. The palate is well carbonated and fluffy, like a typical saison. Light spiciness throughout and a rather large bitterness from the hops on the finish. Spiciness appears once again on the end. Overall, it doesn’t really work together at all.

mansquito (5207) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 30, 2015
Hops Hill, Brooklyn tap: Pours light golden with a white head. Aroma is spice, full fruitiness, and some grain. Taste is lightly spicy, very fruity (not citrusy), a bit sweet, and not that dry. This is very clearly a saison, but it is not the dry kind, rather the sweet kind. The peppery touch is nice. Good, not great. I had this right after the Prairie Brett C, so it was facing some tough competition.

jbeatty (1244) - New York, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle, 10/08/2014. Pours dull hazy gold, small foamy head on the surface, some lacing built around the edge of the glass. Aroma is sweet pear, mild peach, banana with full-bodied malty yeast notes, touch of pepper, grass. Taste is mildly sweet malts, fresh hay, stone fruits, nice citrus hop accents. Medium body, drinks very easy. Not the typical saison profile, more round slightly sweet, but a nice change of pace.

jtclockwork (14718) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle from Brewery. Pours yellow gold white head. Nose/taste of alcohol soaked pear, saison yeast, lemongrass, peppercorn, pear and stone fruit. Medium body. A touch overcarbonated. Got better as it "breathed."
