mbpufall (83) - Andover, Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Aroma is apple and grass. Appearance is clear and effervesent like a cider. The taste is crisp apple and a bit of yeast. On the palate, its crisp, clean and a bit sparkling. Its tasty. Good thing winter never really showed up in MN because this is a warmer weather beer.

crosamich (433) - Twin Falls, Idaho, USA - MAR 4, 2012
release #8. straw color. light white fluffy head. Dont get much here. Little apple, no spices, no farmhouse/saison, just some generic Belgian/banana yeast character. Very much not what I was expecting & disappointing. However it is still drinkable with no off-flavors

maley1 (1193) - Calgary, CANADA - MAR 1, 2012
Hazy straw colored pour with a frothy large white head. Aroma of citrus, green apple and yeast. Taste is green apple, lemon, yeast and a hint of caramel. Nice and crisp mouthfeel, this beer is well balanced. Would be a perfect beer for a hot summer day but beware the ABV is well hidden. Excellent beer.

dmschefke (576) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2012
Pours an expected straw yellow with minimal head, little lacing. Aroma obvious of hay, yeast, green apple pie, citrus, and load of spices. Flavor matches well and makes for an enjoyable brew.

ngeunit1 (1555) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 21, 2012
A - Very cloudy golden yellow with a finger of frothy white head. Head faded down at a normal pace leaving behind some lace. S - Aroma is a mix of funkiness with some lemon, tart apple, and some spices. T - Starts off with some tart green apple flavor with some hay and lemon. Through the middle, some yeast, coriander, clove, and funk come through. The finish is a mix out tart green apple with some sourness, yeast, and some spices. M - Medium bodied with moderate-plus carbonation. It is smooth with a nice tart and crisp finish. D - Very drinkable. Not as sour as expected, but the tartness does give the saison a nice extra kick.

Beerman6686 (6435) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2012
This poured a semi cloudy yellow color with a white head. Aroma was a mixture of light grassy funk, apples, and dust. Flavor was somewhat cheesy, and apples, barnyard notes, and some grassy moldy hops, Eh.

BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Golden in color, hazy with a thin white head. Light sour aroma with lingering fruit. The yeast flavor and aroma are light throughout. Nice drinkable sour ale. Nit too puckering. I am not much of a sour drinker nor saison so this was a very good beer.

zeke626 (460) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Bottle, Release #8 (8.1% ABV). Pours a bubbly, clear, yellow-gold body with a quickly dissapating , fluffy white head. Typical saison aroma with some belgian yeast and clove aromas along with a faint green apple scent. The green apple is stronger in the flavor, near the front of the palate then turns to bread/yeast flavors. Light and effervescent, although somewhat sticky initially. Slightly bitter and metallic finish.
