Bottle I bought at Appalachian Vintners. Lots of fruit and yeast and a pale yellow color. Nice. douglas88 (9828) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 15, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow color with a large white head. A big grassy lemon nose. The flavor is sharp lemon, a bit tart, hay, deep funky brett. Solid. Very drinkable ChainGangGuy (4949) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - FEB 10, 2016
Appearance: Pours a light yellow body with good clarity and while there are a few bubbles up top, there’s no real head formation.
Smell: Beyond a thin scaffolding of lightly crisped grains, it’s herbaceous, perfumy and winy and alternately bouncing between fruity aspects of muted melon and lemon/lime.
Taste: A light touch of pale maltiness, maybe a bit of pils, with a quick snap of grassiness, soap and light melon. A moderately vinous vein, one that’s acidic and red wine grapey alongside some growing (though not overly bold) bitterness. Seems a bit ’green’ and herbal on the backhalf. A lil’ hint of sweetness comes ’round on the backhalf as well. Clean, subtle bretty quality throughout. All flavors politely converge for the near-flat, bone dry finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Low carbonation.
Overall: A big fan of both breweries, though, for me, it could greatly benefit for some crispness. I guess you could say it fell a little flat with me. luttonm (7061) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 29, 2016
Bottle at Seattle tasting. Golden-orange, foamy-soapy head. Herbal, slightly grassy body. A touch sweet and medicinal. Good. onceblind (11052) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Clear golden with a thin white cap. Big funky and weird aroma with boys locker room and earthy grassy hop and a touch of acidity. Light and quaffable flavor with light Belgian pale malt, grassy herbal clean hops, low bitterness, funky earthiness but light and clean.

750mL bottle, pours a hazy blonde with a small white head. Aroma reveals notes of rustic farmhouse notes and some perfumey, floral notes. Flavour is along the same lines, with lots of rustic farmhouse notes, a touch of floral notes, and biscuity notes. Pretty authentic for an American un-bretted saison. Well made and enjoyable - but nothing special. andrewje41 (4628) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Bottle pour at the tasting, thanks to Ferris. Pours a semi cloudy golden color. Bretty, citrus fruit aroma. Dry throughout, with a semi sweet melon fruit. Very impressed by this one. Very unique flavor, delicious, and a cool bottle to pair. Galaxy hops are like that actor that you could never name before, but now they seem to be popping up in everything. Love it.

Bottle thanks to Ferris. Hazy gold, small head. Aroma: clove, mineral, meadow, fruit (think melon). Lightly sweet, short dry finish, light bitterness. Light body, thinnish texture. Overall: nice! Ferris (17762) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2015
Bottle - Flowery and sweet with lemon grass. Clear light gold with a decent white head. Sweet, herbal, bitter and grassy. Nice complex saison without the estery fruity notes. Go Brett go. b3shine (9334) - Indiana, USA - NOV 20, 2015
Draft to taster at Burial. Looks good; a mostly transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells semi-sweet, bretty, oaky, and mildly spicy with a mild grape presence. Tastes like it smells, but a little more (red) grape-forward, with a semi-dry medium-bodied mouthfeel. Good beer.
