fidelis83 (2136) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle, thanks to joshmcg000. Slightly hazy gold pour with a thin, long lasting bright white head that leaves a surprisingly nice amount of lacing. Aroma of sage, ginger, wet limestone, light cereal, a little tart stone fruit, and some nice, slightly funky yeast. Flavor is cereal, stone fruit and toast up front, leading to the spicy ginger, sage, and peppercorn middle and a nice, spicy, floral and lightly biter citrus peel finish. Light to medium body, slightly creamy entry, moderate, slightly sharp carbonation and off dry finish. Really good stuff.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2013 I love this style and this beer...high carbonation...nice spice in the nose.. A little tart..not a real dry finish as you’d maybe expect... A mild sweet finish.. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

boto (1937) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - APR 13, 2013
12oz. bottle: This one pours a hazy, golden color. There wasn’t much of a white head on it, and what was there didn’t linger or leave any lacing. It has a nice aroma. Somewhat musty, with lemon and grapefruit, wheat and some peppery notes. Interesting taste. Some tartness, wheat, spiciness, bit of bitterness, lemon, a touch of yeastiness and breadiness. A very nice Saison. I hope they do it again!

decaturstevo (5393) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Clear yellow pour with creamy white frothy head and lace. Aroma is sweet brown sugar, citrus, and clove like spices. Nice bready malt, nice spiciness, and a citurs sweetness. Medium body with good carbonation. Nice lingering flavors at the end.

Concealer (909) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Some citrus, spice and a good amount of funk in the nose but a bit underwhelming. Tastes good with a light fruity flavor, a little alcohol and spice.

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - FEB 27, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a pale fizzy yellow. Small white head atop. Fair amount of bubbles rising throughout. The nose is really herbal, which was expected. Notes of grass, yeast, thyme. Crisp mouthfeel, again expected due to the vast amount of carbonation present. A flavorful beer here with thyme, oregano, lemon pepper, lime, yeast, mild citrus. A lot going on, but it’s almost too strange. This was the last of the 3 versions I needed to try. I don’t think any of the other ones really jumped out at me, and this is no exception. Probably a beer I won’t be visiting again. But hey, the friend I shared it with, it’s his favorite beer. To each their own.

gonzosauce (157) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 25, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2013 A random mistake to drink this style at such an age, but we got lucky. Pear, yeast, mint, pepper, faint banana on the nose. Exciting. Very clear through the gold; it’s good to see sunshine. Such an interesting flavor. Minty as hell; seems the rosemary has lost the herby attributes but maintained the floral - would not have expected such! A novelty of sorts, but a beer I would drink whenever I had the chance.

Ughsmash (7327) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Bottled. Poured bright, straw golden with a short white head. The aroma picked up a vibrant blend of lemon zest, floral notes, and related white spices over a soft pale base.. a bit of mint right on the back.. smelled like it was going to be refreshing. The flavor found tangy lemon, peppery spices, and floral notes throughout, with a soft pale and biscuity malt base.. flowers, lemon, mint, and cloves on the bright, refreshing finish. Medium-bodied with low-ish carbonation on the palate.. everything worked well together (though a little heavy on the floral and spicage for me).. delightfully dry and refreshing.

courtesy of the Phoenix/Google crew of Zurich and shared by Toni Flükiger - clear golden beer with a little white foam left; perfumy and fairly hoppy aroma; fruity and resiney with notes of sage; lively and tasty, medium- to full malt backbone; quite bitter, long grassy and spicy hoppy finish, dry - very good
