Travlr (22467) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 15, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2011 Draft. Sweet aroma and finish, too sweet, too light and not enough barnyard to be a classic saison.

brokensail (16222) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 11, 2013
On tap @ Epic (Denver). Pours a pale straw pour with a white head. Tart lemon and citrus, banana, and grass on the nose. Pears, apples, and a touch of pepper. Maybe some coriander. Sweet malt as well. Flavors of banana, pear, and apple. Light citrus, a touch of lemon peel, and clove on the finish. Sweet malt and sugar notes all the way through. Not really a saison, but a decent Belgian-style beer.

Oakes (16105) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 15, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2017 Jan 2017: Hazy without much head. Quite yeasty on the nose, especially pedio and way too much yeast. This has a fair bit of dusty character, with a sweet and dusty character. No change in the rating.

Spring 2014: Hazy blonde, not much head. Lots of phenolic yeast...common saison yeast.... Sweetish, but in the finish theres a touch of acidity and pedio that doesnt seem like it should be there. Ends up not that interesting save for the faults. 6-3-6-2-12 = 2.9

mcberko (15431) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 4, 2017
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out saison yeast, some citrus notes and spiciness -- typical North American saison. Flavour is likewise a typical North American saison, followed by citrus and bready malt. Lots of cheap North American saison yeast. No good.
