&Schmick’s, Portland as "Full Sail Saison A Pleine Voile"
Slightly hazy yellow color, good creamy white head. Aroma of leather, herbal-fruity notes, Saison yeast. Light-bodied. Light fruity flavor with light spiceyness and lemony hops. Weak palate. Refreshing but not very exiciting Saison.
On tap at Falling Rock poured a hazy yellow with a lasting off white head. Aromas of straw, barnyard funk, light leather, light fruittiness and light spice. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, barnyard, spice and light fruittiness with a smooth dry finish.

A golden saison with a thick frothy white head. A good aroma of sweet cream, epsom salts, light belgian spices. In mouth, a clean, lightly oily, malt with light spiced notes, wheat, not bad. On tap at Horse Brass, Sept. 4 2010. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2009
(Draught) Pours a lightly cloudy golden orange body with a small white head. Aroma of orange peel, grass, florals, leather, horseblanket, and bread. Flavor of lemon, orange, yeast, earth, brett, and biscuit with a somewhat dry, bitter finish. cubs (10635) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 24, 2010
Tasted on tap at Falling Rock in Denver, Colorado. Appearance is a bit hazy, but mostly looks like a Pale Lager. A bit sweet Belgian aroma that’s mostly dominated by the hops. Very hoppy for a Saison that is reminiscent of a American-style Belgian Pale Ale. Not all that yeasty. Below average or worse Saison.

Tap at Falling Rock - a surprisingly solid saison - very dry and flinty throughout, with just a hint og yeastiness on the tail end - a bit of melon and lemon rind - moderate spicy character and a lot of dry, herbal bitterness - not lacking Full Sail’s house flavor, but it works well in this style - nice.

On tap at Falling rock listed as "Saison de Full Sail". Pours almost identical to the RR publication which I had side by side. Pours a nice hazy yellow with a monstrous white head and great lace. Aroma is highly phenolic but nicely yeasty with great saison character, a bit of dirt, brett funk, earth, light burnt wire, toasted and bready malts, and nicely hopped- earth and floral. Doughy slightly earthy flavor, with nice phenolic yeast, funk is earthy with some horse, toasted malts, great typical saison character and a nice earthy hoppy finish and very dry- smooth. Held its own next to the publication. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 30, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2009 Tap @ Saraveza... Poured golden, hazy yellow with a white head. Faint, earthy, malts on the nose. Creamy palate with yeast flavors, wheat malts and earthy spices. Mild bit of hops and a candy sweetness. BillKismet (4059) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 21, 2011
Slightly hazy blonde body with silken cover. Belgian nose of restrained farmhouse presence and lemons. Farmhousey body, yeasty-wyeast nutrient flavor and light phenols and pepper through the finish. HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2009
Cloudy, golden pour with creamy white head. Aroma of hay, light funk, bread. Flavor is pretty good: yeasty, a bit of funk and dust. Some citrus in there too. Nice mouthfeel, with good carbonation. Very good interpretation of the style.
