iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Tap at South Beach in OB. Clear pale golden with a small white head, fading to a ring before long. Aroma is a clean US version of a saison, light bananas and apricot, some white pepper. No rustic farmhousey anything. Flavor follows suit, not crazy strong, but bananas and pepper dominate. Not sweet, but the esters have me thinking a bit otherwise. A Belgian pale,perhaps? Semi-dry, bitterness at a 3. Light to medium body, low to moderate carbonation. OK. 7-3-6-3-13--3.2

Faint aromas and flavors of floral, light fruit and a slight earthiness. Light color and weight. A little to watery. Pretty average for the style.

Taster at the brewery. Pale yellow color with white head. Aroma is some fresh fruits, apricots, a bit biscuity. Taste is light, refreshing, spicy, apricots. A light and easy Saison, not too complex on the spices and not too dry.

joeneugs (6063) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 14, 2013
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a nice yellow color with a white head. The aroma is floral with some light funky yeast and spice. The flavor is a good balance of spicy yeast and light, grainy malts. Very subdued in every way malt, yeast and spice, but very pleasant as well. Drinkable. Theres some light fruitiness and bubblegum sweetness if you look for it.

Draft sample. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate yeast balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 14, 2013
On tap at Dutchs. The keg we received is labeled 5.5%. Mildly hazy golden color. Thin white head. Some ropes and dots of lace. Medium body. Smooth, sort of softer crisp lighter carbonation, with a dry finish. Nice herbal spice flavor, some lemon citrus. Easy drinking and refreshing. Moderate bitter taste, light savory. Tasty light sessionable saison. I wish there more beers like this readily available.
