reebtogi (4388) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 13, 2012
750ml capped bottle pours a cloudy golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some sporadic lacing on the glass. Aroma is pleasant with some grass and citrus. Taste is citrusy with some grass and a citrusy component and some light fruitiness. Light to medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Not the best of the Saison family, but still an appreciable brew.

Gerbeer (2003) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2012
750 ml bottle. Pours a light yellow/brown with medium head. Light aromas of grass and lemon. Flavors of green apples and lemons. Where’s the hops? Nice fruit juice - not much beer. Saison - no. Cooler - yes.

DuffMan (7032) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2012
Bottle, shared with Brian. Medium orange amber colour with a poorly retaining off white head. Aroma is quite fruity, sweet peach, some citrus. Flavour is sweet, approaching syrupy, which right away puts me off if you’re calling this a saison. I think the hop oils have faded here because there is weak citrus and stonefruits on the palate, but very little bitterness. The finish is brief and dry and gone. No spiciness or yeast character anywhere. This was just okay for me, but to be fair, I’m pretty sure it would be a totally different drinking experience if it were fresh.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Notes from my backlog: Pours a murky copper with a tan ring of head. Sweet fruity aroma- figs, dried apricot simple. Rounded body. Fruity flavor as well with a light tartness. Green raisin, apricot, some minty undertones. Pretty unique. Similar to a Fantome.

Reimer96 (1342) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2012
Pours a cloudy copper orange color with a small white ring. Aroma is a huge citrus blast with lemon & fig in the background. Taste is is fruity sweetness up front with a light citrus & peppery bitterness on the finish. Good beer but not what I expect for a saison.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Dark orange murky pour with a white head. Aroma is peppery, citrus, a bit of apple. Flavor is spicy, malty, some hop twang. Good notes all around. Nice saison.

gramity (1462) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 30, 2012
Spectacularly hoppy nose bursting with citrus fruit, golden amber with a slight haze, vigorous carbonation, citrusy hops dominate the palate, with some sainson yeast spicy character trying to make its way underneath, long bitter finish, with some spicy, peppery notes. Great beer

andrewturba (1088) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2012
Pours a very cloudy amber colour with mild white head that quickly disappears and leaves nothing. Aromas are sweet peach, yeast, citrus and grass. Taste is a light spicy bitterness, citrus, yeast and peach sweetness(syrup like). Could have had a lot more peppery spice for a saison.
