pour at brewery, simplistic and highly drinkable. High carb and very dry. Some spices, wheat grains. Lightly tart. Very quaffable. bellco33 (842) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - JAN 22, 2017
On tap at the brewery: Pours hazy straw with a fluffy white head. Aroma of cracker malt, herbs, and saison funk. Taste is more of the same with a light touch of pepper. This is a really dry, light, but flavorful saison. It’s incredibly tasty, refreshing, and infinitely drinkable. I love this simple saison. Reynolds314 (3472) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 2, 2017

Draught at Return of the Belgian Beer Fest, 9/17/16 as Saison de Foam 2.0 (same abv).Stoned99 (1704) - St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2016
Very pale golden body shows good clarity and a small, but fairly well-retained white head atop.
Very light simcoe-like notes in the nose of lime, light pine and some dank, spicy vegetal character. It works with the dry, peppery, vegetal yeast notes and produces an overall peppery, spicy, somewhat citric-laden nose that seems to be right up there with some of Oxbow’s hybrid American-hopped table saisons. Great attenuation, with biscuit and cracker-like malts in the background and no resin, alcohol or flaw.
Light tartness up front takes the form of lemon-lime-like acidity as very soft esters (apple, bubble gum, strawberry) collect about on the soft palette of wheat and biscuit-like malts, nicely dry and further softened by the tight carbonation. A bit of bitterness followed by a good dose of black pepper phenolic character ends on more biscuity malt, lightly tart acids and interesting vegetal notes that I think are hop-derived. Awesome, highly drinkable stuff.
8 ounces on tap at brewpub. Aroma: lots of fruits, especially citrus, pineapples. As it get warmer, lots of peppery notes come join the fruits to the party. Taste and palate: medium body, lots of pineapples and kiwi in mouth, maybe too much, light bitter finish. Overall: good but not as good as expected. With all this fruits we almost lose the saison signature. Preferred the aroma over the taste which is ok but after a few sips, it gets annoying. An ok and refreshing beer. rejtable (2891) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2016
Tap at brewery. Pours yellow clear some head and some lacing. Nose is fruity and some yeast. Yeasty pepper. Taste medium bitter, light sweet. Light body with lively carbonation. Bulk_Carrier (6064) - Vermont, USA - JUL 29, 2016
On tap at the brewery.
They poured this into a tall tulip (maybe stemmed pilsener).
The appearance was a hazy burnt yellow to orange color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head. Adequate sly to thin foamy lacing.
The smell had a huge stiff farmhouse funk up front bursting over some fresh sweet grassiness. Delicate black pepper. Refined sweet citrus pulp. Balanced bitternesss.
The flavor takes in all previously mentioned flavors - nice funk with the sweet, subtle sour and then the spice. Sly breadiness lingers and slides together to bring into aftertaste (quite subtle yet really good). Semi-sticky to wet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. Spiciness is there but semi-contained harsh bitterness of the citrus rind invades to bring about the balanced sweetness.
Overall, damn nice saison, one of those Summer saisons that has a nice refreshing aspect to it. Would love to have again.
