Guerde (1297) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 26, 2013
(bottle) Drank during one of the nicer days of the year so far, so felt the style was appropriate for the weather. Pours out a clear gold color with a large, fluffy white head and solid levels of lacing. Yeast pour introduces plenty of haziness. Aroma holds some pizza crust, oregano, coriander, light banana, and faint soap bar. The flavor holds substantial cracker and bread notes, especially shining through on the finish, with further flavors of faint banana, mild but herbal hops in the mid, and a lingering finish of grain holding well on after drinking. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is a bit subdued for the style. Overall a decent saison that would be great for the upcoming summer weather. arnold931 (1264) - Iowa, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy copper with a nice head. Nose is mild citrus and some fruit. Taste is also very mild...citrus and some breadiness. Tart on the backend. Thisis12ptfont (1221) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Faint caramalized sugar, belgian yeast and coriander aroma.Yellowish gold with a fine foam rim. Immensly crisp and hoppy flavor upfront with a full bodied malt giving off dough, caramel, herbs and maple syrup. Finish is a strongly carbonated continuous hop flavor. Overall, this is actually really good. Pleasantly light yet, full flavored. I’d give this an A- rating. jeremyh70 (1115) - Missouri, USA - MAY 28, 2013
A golden orange color with a big rocky off white head with nice retention and good lacing. I get lemon and orange zest aroma with a little funk and grain on the nose. Taste light fruit, orange and banana, with quite a bit of toasted grain and a bit of pepperiness. Has a saltine cracker flavor mid palate and finishes semi dry with a slight bitterness and more grain. Soft mouthfeel with a light/medium body and medium carbonation. A little clean and a bit off for the style. Could use some more funk and less grain, but not a bad tasting beer. ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a slightly cloudy straw-orange. Lots of off-white head. Aroma malt-forward, but with some yeasty ester notes as well. Body lively on tongue, finish very abrupt, maybe some hints of grass or spice? Not bad, just a little slight.
Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a finger of quickly settling white head. Some thin lacing. Aroma is mildly funky, musty, wheaty, with a hint of manure. Flavor is similar to aroma, funky, mild ctirus, with a bitter aftertaste that lingers. Very mild and disappointing throughout. Moderate carbonation, light body, and watery texture. A lacking saison. Bricktop86 (894) - Moore, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Pours clear yellow with a white head. Aroma is wheat, lemon, and spices. Taste follows nose Wittales (884) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Appearance was cloudy light golden with diminishing white creamy 1 finger head, hints of lacing. Aromas are stale bread, citrus fruits, dirty socks, funky yeasts. Taste are grainy wheat, slight pils or pale malts. Lemony hops and then funky sour barnyard, not in good way. Palate was soft creamy co2 with light body, citrusy, medincial stale bread lasting unbalanced finish. Not my cup of tea... mbgrayson (806) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - APR 26, 2013
Twelve ounce bottle, a limited release. Pours a cloudy golden color, with a long lasting white head. Aroma is thinly of hops. Taste is typical of a Saison. Good flavor, but this isn’t my favorite style. Thumbs up. MikeJslc (778) - Alabama, USA - APR 20, 2013
Gold, hazy. off-white head. Grainy-sweet malt with some cornlike notes, a little hay, some light herbal and earthy notes. Finishes grainy and relatively dry, with some lingering herbal notes.
