Pours a hazy gold with no head. Aroma of saison yeast, hops and malts. Taste follows, nice and light yet bitter. Really cool ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

madvike (3149) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Bottle - Pours clear amber with a huge creamy off-white head. Nose is light citrus and herbal hops, dusty yeast, and a dry, lightly spicy maltiness. Taste is dry pale malt, dusty yeast and a bit of spiciness. Long, sharp, spicy hop finish with pine and herbals mixed in. Intensely drying and sharp. Huge carbonation, and the whole thing makes me feel like I need to drink some water.

HogTownHarry (6372) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2012
April 26, 2011 - 750ml bottle at Volo shared with blankboy. Cloudy amber-yellow with huge frothy/creamy long-lasting off-white head. Aroma is bone dry and spicy/yeasty herbal bitter, sharply yeasty - solid background of tart fruit (not sure what kind). Taste - again, tart, some sweet fruit in the background, slightly sweeter than the aroma, mild-to-moderate alcohol presence, really good - somewhat wild, reminds me a bit of Hopfenstark funky beers. Solid body, almost frothy soft carbonation, a little acidity, finishes incredibly dry and tingly, maybe a hint of old oak.

Hazy golden color with a whitish color head. Yeasty with malt and spice at the front and a light fruitiness (citrus and peach). Full enough to matter.

Poured into a tulip. 4.0 A: Lightly hazed yellow orange color. I needed a few pours to get a full glass due to lots of head. Eventually settled on three fingers of white, frothy/pillowy head. Retention is pretty good and lots of lacing is left. 4.0 S: Big herbalness in the nose. Earthy and spicy hoppiness. Pear fruitiness dominates, while melon and apple are underneath. Overall clean with slightly bready malts and just a touch of crystal malt. 3.5 T: Again pear fruitiness is huge. Moderately herbal overall with spicy and earthy hops. There’s a moderate bitterness, which doesn’t work all that well in a saison, but it’s okay I guess. Apple and melon next. Lightly bready with light hay and grass funk. 3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Carbonation level is fine, but it’s a heavy, dead carbonation. I’d like it to be a bit spritzier. Still, good enough here too. 3.5 D: Tasty take on a saison. I like this one way more than Four. Can’t wait to try Six. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-12-2012 03:49:59

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - AUG 8, 2012
750ml bottle from PDX. Clear golden with a huge off white head and some sticky lacing. Aroma is earthy, spicy, honey and bready pils malt. Flavor is smooth and malty without being sweet with some spicy/musty tartness and faint bitterness. Medium to light body with very active carbonation. Pretty nice beer, very easy drinking but not as much complexity as I thought.

radarsock (1146) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 25, 2012
First off, this is foamy as hell. Second off, it smells of cat urine, rustic hops, Hampton Beach, farmyards, wheat bread and rubber. Tastes of bitter hops going up, and bitter hops going down in a smorgasbord/rootsi laud of graham cracker, fish paste, rich soil, and plastic. Oh, man, I liked this one quite a lot!

gramity (1584) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 24, 2012
#700! Pours a very cloudy orange-copper with a massive long-lasting fluffy off-white head. Wonderful Saison aroma: Yeasty, herbal, spicy and floral along with a nice amount of citrus fruit and light hops -- it all comes together nicely. Dry, lightly tart flavour of yeast, wheat, cereal grain, citrus fruit, pepper and a finish that is quite bitter for the style -- very easy to drink. Medium bodied and well carbonated for the style. Very good stuff, I easily polished off a 750 of this.

Very malty saison with a slight soapy note. Otherwise nice spicy lemon character and a crisp dry hop bitterness.

Hazy orange gold with a fluffy white head. Minty nose with some juniper notes. Lighter bodied with more clean herbal notes on the palate. I think I like the hop blast on the finish, but it is rather shocking.
