A little cloudy light yellow beer. Creamy fine laced white head. Smell is hoppy and a little fruity. Mouth feeling is a little flat, but with a crispy bite. Taste is fruity and bitter hops at the same time. Aftertaste is dry hops and some citrus.

From a bottle at Stone 14th Anniversary - I wish I had had the experience that many other reviewers have had here, but the green bottle let enough light into the sample that I tasted to make it skunky. Which is too bad because the stuff around that skunkiness tasted promising. Why in the world does any brewer use green or clear bottles in this day and age? FAIL

Tap: Houston Flying Saucer .. Pours a medium hazy gold.. good amount of puffy head, lacing is quite good too .. . aromas of hay, yeast, and light beehive .. quite a sweet saison, especially for a Belgian . .. You see? You just can’t trust anyone. The first girl I let into my life and she tries to eat me.

Pours a hazy yellow into the glass with a nice white head. Description says that it is filtered on draft, but this is an extremely hazy beer. Aroma is slightly sweet with spicy belgian character. Flavor is cereal grain with a round sweetness and belgian spice that one would expect from a saison. Not quite as dry as most saisons and a bit cloying towards the end.

Sammy (8354) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2010
Draft, and therefore filtered, at Prime 16. Decent mouthfeel. Good pepper, spicy tastes. Suitable carbonation. Whitish saison colours. A good drinkable saison, nothing out of the ordinary.

FlacoAlto (3759) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Sampled July 2010 waiting on a Belgian Cat 4 waiting for The Tour de France to roll through
The beer pours with a brilliantly clear, pale blonde color and is topped by a frothy, barely tan tinged, off-white colored head that is dense and creamy and leaves quite a bit of lace. The beer smells of lemon-like hops, and a nice grassy-grain pale malt character.

The beer is soft and creamy feeling, but a fizzy carbonation brushes the palate quite clean. A touch of pale-malt sweetness is here, but this finishes dry with a grassy, herbal like hop character and firm bitterness in the finish that dries things out considerably. There is also a hay-like grain note in the finish. Lemon like hop flavors compliment nicely with the pale malt sweetness as well as with the grassy herbal hop components. While soft and creamy textured, this beer is still quite quaffable and light; I have been drinking lots of Lambic so this seems heavy comparatively, but really it is quite light and drinkable. Yeast derived notes contributes a spicy, clove-like, earthy, rustic yeast flavors to the beer.

It is quite nice to be drinking this beer as I wait for the Tour de France to roll over this small category 4 hill out in the Belgian countryside. The rustic yeast character combines with the hops and characterful pale malt character quite well. This is definitely a beer that fits the situation quite well.
