b3shine (7403) - Indiana, USA - SEP 28, 2013
750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good for the style; a hazy orange with ample off-white head and lively carbonation. Smells yeasty, spicy, hoppy, and earthy. Tastes like it smells with a nice, dry mouthfeel. A good example of the style.

dmac (5087) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2016
750ml bottle from www, craftbeerkings.com. Poured a hazy honey brownish/deep gold body with a HUGE crystal white head. Aroma is fruity, tropical fruits, lime, tangerine, lemon, bubbke gum, sugar, Belgian yeast, dough. Flavor is slightly less sweet and a touch more grainy but overall nice. Mouthfeel is delicate with a light body and soft carbonation despite the huge head. The HUGE head is distracting simply because you get a mouthful of foam instead of liquid every time you try to take a sip. This is still a really nice beer but could have been great.

juffage (163) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2015
On keg at the Grove, Huddersfield. Previously had it out of a bottle and enjoyed it more, so maybe this keg is a bit old/oxidized. Dry, crisp, light, crushable saison. Bit of ashy lemony incense. Peppery and well balanced. Nicely done.
