Bottle. Bright dark golden pour with ample white head. Smell is initially yeasty spice, followed by some funk and a touch of fruit. Flavor follows suit. Some grass and hay in there too. Fun beer. rougeau13 (3237) - Richmond, Texas, USA - SEP 20, 2017
Bottle. White resilient head. Golden amber, almost clear. Aroma of funk, apple, bubblegum and citrus. Tastes yeasty, funky, fruity, and a bit sweet. Medium bodied and smooth. AWISLguy (3375) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 19, 2017
Flight at the source during ck1 birthday trip. Light funk. Other fruit. Subtle, which is disappointing as it shows promise. 13 Ernest (7863) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2017

Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is hazy medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), lightly yeasty (cobwebs, basement), with notes of candy (Jolly Rancher-ish), gum/banana, dried pineapple, with light notes of alcohol and coriander.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation.
While this is slightly better balanced (a little less sweet, but still not dry enough in the finish to be enjoyable to drink much of it) than the regular Saison, it’s oddly less saison-like aromatically; more like a generic estery Belgian ale, and almost suggests coriander was added. Still, on the whole it’s not too bad...I guess my main gripe is just that it’s kinda non-serious, overly accessible, Americanized. "Sweet and easy", you might say.
On tap at Hops and Pie poured a hazy gold with a lasting off white head. Aromas of bread, yeast, bandaids, light citrus and light oak. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, yeast, bandaids, light fruitiness and a hint of oak with a crisp dry lingering bandaid finish.

1-21-2013. Hazy light yellow with a thin white collar. Aromas of funk, grass, lemon, a touch of cracked pepper, melon. Musty and funky. Ample brett character throughout the aroma and flavor. Nice. markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Bottle courtesy of NielsenRatings. Cheers, Aaron! Pours a hazy yellow with a fizzy everlasting white head. Nose is some bretty funk, burlap, pineapple, barnyard, lemon with lemon zest, and earthy brett. Flavor starts with lemon and some sweet malt then moves to brett, burlap, barnyard, then to pineapple, citrus, lemon, and some earthy spice, then finishes a bit dry with lemon peel, earthy brett, and a dry yeasty character. Light to medium in body and a nice saison overall. jcnielsen (3416) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle. Thanks to adnielsen for sending. Pours a hazy lemon yellow color with big white head. Citrus, lemon, hay, slight funk and yeast aromas. Funky, citrusy, cheesey, lemon, yeast flavors. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Pour on tap at the brewery, slightly hazy yellow pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of grass, slight spice, hints of funk from the brett, oak, touch of earthy tones in there, slight white fruit, not bad but not overly flavorful. Taste is a mix of white fruit, biscuit, bread into some grassy and funky hops, hints of an earthy tone, slight oak, vanilla, finishing fairly bitter, and very dry. drowland (9164) - Georgia, USA - OCT 31, 2013
10/18/13. 750mL bottle shared by Pacha - thanks! Golden orange pour with a nice khaki head. Cheesy aroma, sweat sock, some lemon and doughiness, mild tartness and funk. Nicer flavor, good funk, some tart lemon and douginess, some spice... tastes a bit like soup. Not bad.
