Pineapple and sour banana aroma with some honey and a woody character. Hazy yellow under a thick, white ring that laced the glass. Tropical fruit flaovur with a woody bitterness and a touch of horseblanket and white grape. The woody bitterness transcends the whole tasting experience and is a nice counterpoint to the horseblanket. Light body, medium carbonation, woody bitter finish. efdejesus (93) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2010
Poors a golden hue with a medium sized head. Very carbonated up front like champagne. A tart flavor is noted that is not overpowering. Clean finish. msante79 (2244) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2010
On tap at Anchor Bar in Wichita. Pours hazy yellow-gold with small white head. Aromas of orange, a bit of tartness, yeast, and a bit of the barrel. Flavors of light spices, orange, lemon, yeast, bit of tartness, a bit of vanilla, and some wet wood. Very tasty brew and a hell of an american saison. Very proud that this brew came out of Chicago.

Hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of exotic fruits and brett funk. Sweet and fruity flavour with peach and spices mu11igan (133) - Davis, California, USA - SEP 29, 2010
Big bottle pour is effervescent, releasing lots of fluffy white head. Body is a nice golden yellow. Aroma is citrus and yeast, very natural. Mouthfeel is crisp, perfect carbonation level. Flavor is very citrus intensive with some tartness and light finishing bitterness.
As I sit and drink this beer it seems to be getting better and better. That, to me, is the mark of a quality brew.

2010 bottle poured a light golden color with a big fluffy white head that retained a half inch. aroma has earthy yeast, light spice, wet orange peel, and a nice bright citrus. mouth feel is light and crisp with high side carbonation. flavor has banana yeast, green apple, light citrus, mellow spice, orange, and a mild barrel wood thing. nice and crisp and has a lot of saison character but there is a slight funky dry twist thrown in.

Blond and effervescent with a fluffy white head. Nice white pepper spicy zip to the nose. Fairly clean yeastiness, with piquant white pepper and a delicate ripple of orange and a small wave a pinot grigio. Refreshing, piquant, balanced, crisp, and altogether enjoyable. mixmasterob (1060) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 14, 2010
On draft @ ChurchKey in DC. Hazy golden pour, small white head. Aroma was an array of some citrus, sour fruitiness, and maybe a touch of wood. Nothing overpowering. Flavors were somewhat traditional saison flavors. Some sourness, big fruitiness, very crisp and refreshing. Smooth finish with a light bitterness, somewhat vinous and a bit of heat. Easily one of my favorite saisons that I have tried. jake65 (4033) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - SEP 13, 2010
2009 Bottle: Pours a bright straw color with a light haze and a finger of bubbly white head. Fruity aroma is green apples, yeast, vinous fruits, and something that reminds me of raspberry jam. In the flavor I can really pick up the orange peel and hints of pepper, along with the yeast. It has a dry, vinous note that blends well with the pepper and keeps it from being too fruity. Crisp. Enjoyable.
