Draft at 2SP..yellowish color..lemon aroma..some citrus also present..quite easy drinking..but this just lacked tht it factor that left a solid impression..was crisp and ok but just seems to be missing that typical saison profile.not getting much of the usual tastes and aromas..ok.not really much else to say..

A fresh bottle. Strong and pleasantly herbal nose pushing lemon and rose hips in with the light tartness. With the cleanser feel, has some slight wittish character. Lightly hazy bright yellow body with a lacing white head. Taste is faintly sweet to start but dries out quickly as the bitterness picks up, not so much hoppy as stripping and herbal, nailing those medieval traditionals and bringing light flights of purifying astringency without the rubberiness. Peel and pepper, grainy hay. Clean yeast, fullish body, seems to be less alcoholic than it is, though I think Iíd prefer a lighter body. Honestly, Iím uderwhelmed, but itís fresh and repeatable.

Very light gold. Big fluffy head. Mild fresh basil scent, big fresh basil taste. Otherwise light bodied, flat flavors, not too good.

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 27, 2013
transparent gold, thin white bubbled head with decent lacing. Esters out of control after three pilsners, pepper, ginger, and lemongrass. Light dough adds balance. Peppery lemongrass flavor up front followed by dough and heavy citrus, finishing with bubblegum and crust hints. High carbonation accents esters, but overall pleasant.

Tart, grassy, and full of yeast. Spice and pepper, citrus, then a trailing finish. Light and punchy.

AirForceHops (2979) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 29, 2013
12 oz. bottle from Top Shelf Brews. Snifter displays a nice unfiltered gold with small white head, leaving lace down the sides. Nose is limes, lemon zest and a zesty spice. Taste is mostly identical to the nose with the addition of honey and dry grassy hops. Light pepper in the finish.

Draught at bar. Golden color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, orange peels, earthy notes, grapefruit and some peppers. Dry bitter finish with citrus. Nice saison.

jcr (2187) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - APR 21, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy light gold. Frothy white head. Lots of spice in the aroma. Cardamon, clove, all spice, herbs, toasted grain. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery turning velvety texture, lively carbonation. Dry enough, but the spice tastes forced and infused, making one wonder what theyíre masking in order to pull off a 4.5% saison. No nuances here.

Bottle. Pours yellow gold with white head. Nose and taste of coriander, spicy malt, banana, metallic lemon and light citrus. Light to medium body. Finishes with spicy coriander and splash of citrus.
