camborne (656) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Huge fruit nose and palate. So many different fruity esters, almost too many too name. Sourness of brett plays off sweet fruit well.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7056) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2016
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a hayz yellow-gold color with a large foamy white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was yeasty, chalky and musty with a bit of citrus. The flavor was yeasty and chalky with faint citrus and mustiness. Medium length finish. Medium body. pleasant.

radagast83 (7506) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Draft at the Epic Brewing Denver Taproom. Poured a cloudy yellow orange color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was light sweet malts, peppery yeast notes. Light funky character, dry, straw, some fruity estery notes. Nice solid Belgian Saison.

DuffMan (9637) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 13, 2016
Bottle, shared at pool party. Hazy medium gold, foamy white head. Belgian yeast and light bubblegum, pale malts, dry finish. Not my preferred interpretation of the style.

reebtogi (5831) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 7, 2016
Release #26, 7.9%ABV. 650ml bottle pours a hazy golden color with a finger of white head that leaves very little lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits and grains with some hints of yeast. Taste is a light lemon tartness with a light fruity and malty sweetness and a spicy hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with abundant carbonation. Overall, this is a very well crafted brew that suits the style well and is both balanced and flavorful. Recommended.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2015
Pours a cloudy, bright golden yellow color with banana-like hues and a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Very good retention, taking a while to settle and leaving streaks of soapy lacing behind. Earthy aroma with a decent musty farmhouse presence along with zesty spice, sweet citrus, bready yeast and ester-y light fruit notes. Funky yeast along with straw and hay followed by a strong yeast character. Lots of bread along with some bubblegum and banana. Peppery spice with hints of ginger, coriander and clove. Citric acidity with strong lemon pith and grapefruit. Decent balance in the nose but feels very American with lots of wheat beer characteristics mixed in there. Slightly watered down and light bodied with crisp carbonation. The earthier farmhouse notes are a bit toned down and the bitterness/hop presence is stronger than expected. Dry and earthy with hints of grass, pine, wet hay and straw. This is complimented by a prominent zesty spice presence that lingers throughout giving off hints of white pepper, ginger and coriander. The citrus presence stands out but it tastes less like a wheat beer than it smells. Some bready yeast but the banana and bubblegum notes found in the aroma are muted. Strong lemon acidity in the dry, slightly tart finish. Refreshing and pretty easy to drink but it lacks some depth/complexity. I prefer for the funky saison/farmhouse flavors to be stronger but they are pretty tame here.

Bottle. Hazy light gold/yellow body with a frothy, white head. Aroma of toasted grain, lemon, orange peel, musty basement, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Light acidic tartness in the finish. Taste of toasted grain, lemon.

Saisons should be drinkable and this one is very drinkable. Good flavors not over powering nice and smooth.

UXO (1583) - CANADA - JUL 23, 2015
Appearance: hazy pale gold with two fingers of loose fluffy white head, good retention and chunky lacing. (4/5) Aroma: barnyard funk, citrus, crackery malt, herbal, peppery spice. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, mild tart. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, dry and slightly warming finish. (4/5) A bit sweet and boozy for a saison, but still quite good. I dont generally appreciate gushers, but this one was quite low-speed, so I could manage it with zero spillage. I suspect thats largely due to this thing being two years old, but the extra time in the cellar doesnt appear to have done it any harm - theres no runaway lactic or brett, for example, and the funkiness, though definite, is even-handed. Pretty much what it says on the label: a straight-up saison. (15/20)

snoworsummer (4971) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 5, 2015
Bottle at the brewery. Pours hazy gold with a thick, fizzy off white head. Tastes like herbs, thyme, rosemary, dry cracker malt, lemon, grapefruit, citrus hops. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like thyme, rosemary, lavender, dry cracker malt, and light citrus hops.

A good saison. Slightly sweet and fruit-forward for the style. But, enjoyable. Would have again.
