On tap at American Flatbread. Aroma is lightly fruity (banana maybe?). Pale golden color with clear body and white head. Taste was light bitter and medium sweet. Light body with a dry finish. Overall, Iíve had a few saisons that I didnít like before, but this one was definitely very drinkable. A great, mild saison.

Pouring at BBF in Boston. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Soft lemon and musk, wheat. Medium-bodied musk, lemon and more wheat. Cool and faintly herbal, musk and yeast on the finish. Easy drinking and rather tasty.

On tap at Prohibition Pig. Pours a clear golden. Nose is faintly spicy with mild citrus notes. Flavor is similar. No flaws and a good saison profile, but needed something extra to take it to the next level.

Draft at Blackback. Interesting beer thats a bit to clean for my tastes in saisons. The Citra adds a nice fresh citrus/dankness to the beer but the base saison is a little watery and bland. Still nice and drinkable.

20080914 Tap at brewpub. Pale golden, mostly clear. Very mild saison, light bodied, easy quaff. Fruity and grassy. Came into its own matched with the salty flatbread.

puzzl (3251) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Tap at the Blind Tiger. Wheaty, floral, some farmhouse character and light brett. Kind of lactic, kind of sweetish, with bitter noble hops flavor and some spritzy cheap grapefruit juice. Not especially exciting.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2009
A golden ale with a thin white head. A light banana and clove aroma. In mouth, a rather light yet pleasing saison, with bananas, cloves and light berries. Light bodied. On tap at brewpub Oct. 10 2008.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2008
Pale golden beer. Aroma of bubble gum, light clove and a nice crisp Belgian malt base. Very similar to the tripel, but a bit more minty and a more prominent spicy hoppiness. Lean and crisp with a bit of fruitiness. Some cherry and a light berryish character. Crisp and dry on the finish. Lovely.

DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - DEC 14, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. Very mild, almost non-existent aroma. Pale yellow body, small white head. Surprisingly flavorful, given the aroma. Spicy and flowery, with a slightly bitter finish.
