ClassyBeagle (319) - USA - NOV 3, 2013
FROM NOTES: July 20, í12 Poured on draft at Yazoo Brewery into a pint glass. A: Big, spicy Belgian yest notes, some bready notes as well A: Very hazy, bright orange with a one-finger head that dissipates into a cap and decent lacing. T: Dominated by Belgian yeast characteristics. Banana and clove notes with black pepper and candi sugars. Rye taste shows up in the finish. P: On the light side of medium bodied, highly carbonated. O: The Belgian yeast overpowers the nuances of the rye/saison but still has that light saison quality.

DrSilverworm (6002) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2013
12oz bottle, shared by beerpig317. Hazy golden orange color. Thin white head. Few loose bits of lace. Good spicy orange citrus aroma, nice yeast character. Medium body. Smooth, sort of soft/crisp lighter carbonation, with a more dry finish. Nice moderate bitter taste, light zest, some light sweetness in the finish. Solid, bright, refreshing rye saison.

nearbeer (3602) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 9, 2013
12 oz. Translucent orange-pear colored body has lots of bubble activity that supports an enduring half-inch of sticky-creamy Belgian style foam. Great aroma still comes through the big foam and consists of earthy white grape must, pear, orange-lemon zest, spicy banana bread, and toast. Taste is the same plus some peppery rye, a bit of oxidized grape skins, and wheat. The light-medium body is well balanced but has just a bit too much carbonation for me.

Poured a hazy copper-orange color with a thin white head, very light lacing. Aroma of flowers and citrus. Medium body with a fruity, citrus flavor. A very light bitter finish.

tmoreau (2304) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Shared 12 oz. bottle poured to snifters showing a hazed, orangy hue, with a modest layer of soft white head foam that reduced expeditiously to a thin ring & film, and left some spotty lacing on the glass. The aroma was light Belgian yeast, light esters, some citrus, and a touch of spice. The flavor was similar, adding low hop bitterness, and light acidity/tartness. Soft carbonation added to the perception of a light body, with near watery texture. Subtly dry finishing, with pleasant but subdued taste. Thanks for the share, Eric!

Tasted on draft at the 12 South Winter Warmer in 2011. Pours clear dark golden with a thick white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is spicy rye and spicy Saison yeast, with some caramel malt as well. The flavor is a pretty classic spicy rye Saison, although a bit on the sweet side. Body is full with lively carbonation and a long spicy yeast, spicy rye, and caramel malt finish.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Bottle. Pours a nice bright golden orange with a creamy white head that stays. Aroma is nice with the saison yeast really coming out, spicy and floral with some of the rye there, a bit citric. Flavor isnít quite as nice, some cidery like characters that are a bit overbearing to the delicate peppery notes. Still refreshing though. Medium body and a sharp carbonation.

beerproject (129) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Aroma is light with mostly belgian yeast fruitiness. The taste is slight bitter up front followed by rye ranginess and quite a bit of belgian yeast flavor. The beer was too light on hop flavor and aroma for my taste, there was enough hop bitterness but other hop aspects were missing, imo.

bottle. clear pale orange with a small, stable, white head. apricot tartness aroma. flavors of buttery malts and tart apricot. good bit of booze in here...canít taste it, but i can feel it. not really the refreshing saison sipper i expected..more like a belgian strong. some sources claim this is 5%, no way. iíd bet this is closer to 8%.
