Canned 1/22/15, drunk 12/4/15.deyholla (12240) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 22, 2015
Large white head steadily recedes to cover atop a blonde, clear body.
Dough, light dustiness, hints of corn and cereal grains don’t really announce much of a saison-like nose. There’s light lactic character, hints of bubble gum and mild fruits (apples, strawberries). But mostly just dough and grains....
Hard, rather lifeless feel to the beer, with prickly carbonation and tons of huskiness and graininess, leading to a thin, watery finish with light fruitiness and a hint of acidity. Very little malt depth, loose carbonation and just vaguely Belgian.
On one hand I thought about not reviewing the beers I got in this sampler 9-pack, but they were refrigerated and even if they weren’t refrigerated, I’ve had Saison Dupont’s that have sat on the shelf warm for years that were absolutely delicious. So I don’t see any reason why the beers were in such poor condition after 10-12 months in the fridge.
Can. Pours a clear hazy gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grains with a bit of light fruits and a bit of flora. Flavor has a good amount of sweet grains and flora with a bit of light fruits. ilovedarkbeer (2748) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - SEP 24, 2015
Pours a light yellow color with a bubbly white head. Notes of lemons, sourdough, and faint Belgian yeast. SG111 (2025) - New York, USA - AUG 10, 2015
Canned. Pours fairly light hazed yellow, mild gold tinge, white head. Aroma is funk, slight tart notes, belgian yeast, esters, white grape, slight green apple (or pear?). Actually pretty solid aroma. Flavor is more standard, slight tart, grape, mild banana/clove, slight estery note, belgian yeast. Not bad. Very solid.

The Beer Store, Southampton 4 pack: pours light gold with a white head. Aroma is herbs, spices, and bit of yeast. Taste is very saisonesque. It is very simple, but that appears to be the point of it. Nothing off in the taste or anything like that. Nice dryness in the finish. Good. scarletfire65 (1507) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 14, 2015
16 oz. Can in Fountainhead Chicago. Aroma is dough, dusty old hops, and old citrus. The flavor follows the nose with mushrooms, hay, and earthiness. Well balanced finish. Grainy and lagery. bluejacket74 (1995) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2015
16 ounce can. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a cloudy straw gold color with about an inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like citrus (lemon peel), hay, apricots and some earthiness. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also some bready/grainy malt and a bit of an apple flavor noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s crisp and easy to drink with a decent amount of carbonation. I thought this was an enjoyable brew, glad I got to try this! I got this for $3.29 a can, not sure how much the 4 pack was. ccex (1365) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2015
16 oz. can pours a hazy yellow straw color with small disappearing head and little lacing. Aroma has honey, biscuits,grains, and a bit of spice. Taste is slighltly sweet. Body is meslight to medium with average carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. This one is easliy drinkable and pleasant, but nothing that made me say WOW. A solid, sessionable Saison which I could drink all night long. jh773 (311) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Light golden-yellow in appearance with a good bit of yeast/bacterial rope hanging throughout. Smell is vaguely spicy with some wet cardboard. Funky yeast flavor with a bit of pepper and spice. Body drops out quickly. Decent, very drinkable.
