On tap at Teller’s Hyde Park. Pours a clear orange brown with a very small white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, bready malt, and jam. Flavor of Belgian spices up front esp anise, more Belgian yeast and bready malt. Super light and drinkable. 6/4/7/4/14 (3.5/5) bhensonb (15601) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 8, 2011
Bottle from Beverages4Less in Santee, CA. Pours hazy orange gold with a slight transient near-white head. Aroma is sort of fruity, suggestive of lightly earthy. Med body. Flavor is herby/spicy but not very farmyard. It has a certain tang, seemingly related to citrus. Quaffable. Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2011
The beer pours light copper with a small white head. The aroma is ver light with sweet notes. There are notes of yeast saison flavors to dominate, but still too light overall on a medium body. Jabic (656) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 23, 2011
Ar: Peach, rosy alcohol, slight spiciness.
Ap: Cloudy pale orange - medium-large off-white head with good retention and a thick lacing.
T: Fruity up front, peaches, pears, and bananas - light toasted malt with some soapiness - finish is very short, with slight pepper notes and medium bitterness.
P: Medium-high carbonation - finish is dry and a bit watery.
O: Easy-drinking saison with some nice and classic flavors - a stronger finish would be nice. cubs (10693) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2011
Bottle @ home, courtesy of drfabulous. Thanks! A touch hazy, golden orange appearance with a fluffy white head. Spicy, mildly peppery, light barnyard, belgian golden ale aroma. Peppery, floral, barnyard, a touch funky, Belgian ale flavor. Ok.

Bottle. Lemon peel, coriander, and malt aroma. Amber color with small head. Lemon peel malt and strong bitter coriander flavor. Pretty good - very spicy. HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2011
Found a six-pack in some random place in Kentucky and it was labeled Bluegrass Saison. I’m kind of perplexed how two out of staters could stumble upon this at some random liquor store while it has so few ratings but whatever. Pours a straw golden color with a white head. Aroma is fruity, lots of phenols, with some mild pepper in the finish. Medium bodied, fizz carbonation. Not a perfect example of the style but this is certainly drinkable.

This poured a dark golden color with a white head. The aroma is citrus, herbs, and a bit of fail. The flavor contains some brown sugar, citrus, and corn. This is a crappy saison. KY stick to burbon! That1Guy (2237) - Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2011
Crushed with Honkeybra. A little sweetness and kind of grassy nose with a bit of funk. Very smooth beer. Nice flavor with a nice sweet, almost honey-like flavor. Very sessionable. It’s aight. nearbeer (5555) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 14, 2011
12 oz. Orange-amber with a small, sugary head. Bready, sweet aroma with a touch of citrus peel, clove, and a hint of earthy wood and must. Flavor is sweeter, with a spicy cinnamon, wood, and citrus finish. Medium body is well-balanced and quite spice-tingly.
