Tap at Flying Saucer Austin. Cloudy, pale yellow. Nose is sweet and yeasty. Taste is a bit hoppy, spicy, sweet, and yeasty. A bit sweet for me. Thinnish body. Not bad but I could only drink one of these at a sitting. DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2009
On draught at the Draught House a couple of months ago. Nice aroma of fruit and malt (thank you Forbidden Fruit yeast!!)! It doesn’t taste like 8% so it goes down easy. Nice Belgian characteristics all-around. I’d drink another...or three. travita (5006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2009
Growler thanks to Fratto. the look is clear, with a beige colored head. The smell is belgian, spices, fruits, and basic for the style. The taste is fruits, some bitterness, belgian, yeast, and sweet. ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2009
Served by Rebecca at Flying Saucer in Austin. Xander tagging along. So this is their anniversary saison! Cloudy amber, looks tasty! Middle is dark and brownish, top/bottom (thinner) is more orange. Thin, soapy head. Aroma of yeast and soap. Flavor... lot like a homebrew, what you taste when you get a mouthful while siphoning. Not very lively in the mouth, a liitle flat. Subdued, muddy palate. Easy to drink, that’s for certain. Nice lacing though.
Smells like a brewpub beer, tastes like a homebrew. Further drinks taste surprisingly sweet. Nice balance. Nothing worse (almost) than an oversweetened saison. Additional sips taste increasingly more Belgian. Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2009

Aroma is heavy malt (bread, cookie, caramel), average hop (herbs, grass), average yeast (dough, earth) with notes of apple, allspice, and ginger. Medium bodied, sticky texture, average carbonation, and an astringent finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness. mar (5417) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2009

Growler thanks to Fratto. Orangeish ruby pour with an off white head. Aroma is floral hops, caramel, brown sugar. Flavor is hops, astringent, nicely bitter and malty. Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 23, 2009
Fort Worth Saucer. Faint banana aroma, a little alcohol and dark fruit flavor, finishes off nicely. Down side is that it’s just too sweet.
