3.6
jercraigs (10886) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2015
2015-03-04. Hazy orange amber body with a modest beige head. 3+ Aroma is tangy and a bit sour. Mild doughy malt character? Flavour is lightly sour up front which lingers, lightly fruity and doughy. Very smooth average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Decent, enjoyable. On tap at Pizzeria Paradiso Dupont Circle, Washington DC.

3.9
Dogbrick (13777) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Sample at KurtKeller 021: Pappy-tastic 01 on 03/06/2015. Hazy golden color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, oak and yeast. Medium-bodied with flavors of zesty citrus, herbal yeast, oak and malt. The finish is oaky and fruity with a grassy yeast aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

3.5
GenDV138 (7702) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle on the Brew Bus during the RBWG 2015 bus tour. Hazy yellow with off-white head. Aromas of caramel, citrus, funk. Tastes of floral, funk, citrus peel. Medium body with a dry finish.

3.7
PapaSkeetSkeet (1010) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Pours initially hazy, building to cloudy with chunky large sediment, yellow-apricot with 1.5-inches cream-colored head, coarse, moderate rate of decay. Aroma is rather sour, lactic, but with lots of old dry cheese, substantial floral notes, a bit of bubble gum, grapefruit juice with a bit of mango and mint. Body is light, watery, a tad bit starchy. Carbonation is moderate intensity, medium-fine, blanket of light burn. Flavor is lemon juice tartness with a hint of cherry laffy taffy (that’s a throwback). Some tingling grain and herbs in the finish. I wish the laffy taffy were subdued, but overall a very unique, tart saison. Worth trying. I’m not sure if it lives up to the rating its given, though.

3.4
Sledutah (7839) - Utah, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Bottle from Lueken Liquors, RBWG
Clear golden with a small white head, light lacing. Aroma is spices and woody. Flavors are woody, lemon and peppery
Nice

How: A massive bottle. Appearance: cloudy golden, medium to large white head. Aroma: Lemon, floral, honey, herbal. Palate: medium body, lively carbonation.

3.9
shrubber85 (11618) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Draft. Musty floral lemon peel, wheat malt and hay aroma. Hazy golden yellow with large head. Light musty-dry lemon peel, perfume, and malt flavor. Mildly bitter dry grass finish.
