In short: An ordinary Belgian blonde ale with only very light farmhouse notes. Meh.adrian910ss (2586) - Doylestown, PA, USA - JUL 30, 2011
How: Growler shared at RBSG 2011 grand tasting
The look: Almost clear blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: Nose has only light farmhouse notes and it is mostly fruity yeast esters including bananas and others. Taste is fresh and overripe fruits, a bit spicy, white bread, bubble gum. Overall, not much of a Saison, just another fruity Belgian blonde ale, and a bland one at that. Another beer I didn’t really need to drink but I drank it anyway. And I’ll keep drinking more and more beer until something good happens out of it, or I learn to make better decisions.
On draft at Capones. Pours a semi clear light golden yellow copper color with a frosty medium sized white head. Aroma of faint peppery notes, earthy hints, light spice and musty notes. Taste is much the same as the aroma. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Tap. Pours a slightly hazy dark gold body with a one finger fizzy white head that left minimal lacing. The nose is earthy and spicy with some light farmhouse yeastiness. The flavor is a little too spiced for my tastes, making it almost a little perfume like. The spice do make for a certain crispness as well, where I prefer more of a soft subtle and earthy Saison. Mouthfeel is fizzy and spritzy with a slightly sticky spicy finish. Overall, not a bad beer, but not my preferred take on the style.

This poured a darker cloudy yellow color with a white head. Aroma was light spices, some yeast, and light fruit too. Flavor was musty almost moldy with lots of yeast and medium spice a bit thin. Ehh Leafs93 (2305) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2011

Hazy golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pils malt, citrus, grass, spices, and toasted malts. Taste of citrus, spices, tart wheat, toast, and light bitterness. hivemind (917) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 16, 2011
On tap @ Bullfrog. With Andy PJ and James. Sweet and airy for a saison; drinkable. Decent beer, would definitely try again (had as part of a flight today).
