beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - APR 14, 2013
Batch #22 8.1% ABV. Sampled on 4/12/2013. This saison pours a light to medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Large to medium sized white foamy head, with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity and sweet, spicy and floral with a definite sour apple aroma as well. A medium bodied saison. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are spicy and floral. Lively carbonation. Spicy and floral, with a very definite sour apple flavor with some hop bite at the finish. Crisp, clean and dry. The fruit adds a interesting flavor component to this beer, although it gets kind of cider like as it warms. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and slightly tart.

jsporrer (1086) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2016
Pours a clear straw yellow with a thin white ring. Faint tart / sour aroma. Lightly tart wheat taste with a dry finish. Hardly any sour apple flavor. Not very refreshing or enjoyable.

dnstone (3497) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Pours clear golden with no head. Sweet and sour aromas, like a jolly rancher. Light spiced ale with a green apple juiciness. Notes: At the Salt Lake Brewery ’15

Draft at Claude Hoppers. Golden color, very little head. Apple and spices, tart finish. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

drpimento (3736) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 15, 2016
Aroma’s the best thing here with traditional saison characteristic and only a hint of the band aids to come. Flavor, on the other hand, isn’t so good. I can pick up the saison, but the apple corrupts it and creates the band aid- blech. Body is a touch on the thin side. Thankfully, the finish isn’t long.

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2016
Pours a golden amber color with big fluffy head. Aromas of fruit, grass, yeast, and some dusty notes. Starts spicy effervescent, then to some grassy funky highlights...nice brett finish.

3.6
djd07 (15356) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 4, 2016
Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with small white head. The aroma is strong apple skin, spice, yeast. Medium mouth, funky, grain, light apple flavor, lingering dry finish, very good.

Enjoyed with brother Bryan. poured from a bomber. Taste of a classic Saison Farmhouse ale with cereal and sour fuji apple. Smell of sweet sour apple candy. Nice rich yellow color partially cloudy with white frothy head that lingers. 9.0bry 9.35bd
