TheHopster (1111) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - JUL 15, 2011
On draft at Salt Gastro Pub in Byram. Faint but sweet aroma with lemon. Unfiltered hazy appearance. Refreshingly crisp with lemon and citrus notes. ABV well hidden. Nice summer pick.

freeofthoughts (688) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - JUL 15, 2011
bottle pours pale yellow with tall white head, little smell, kinda musty. Taste is much the same, very yeasty and musty with a prominent wheat malt similar to bavarian varieties or the Grand Teton wheat. There is some hops that give it a belgian saison dryness and really adds the most to this beer. There is a touch of sweetness with some lemon and a bigger bitter orange flavor, maybe some spice but that is probably from the strange yeast that lingers with a soft dryness. Not bad but seems a little off. Has a great mouth with a near champagne beer like crispness.

J_man (993) - Tustin, California, USA - JUL 13, 2011
Clean, salty sea air aroma rising off a hazy and highly effervescent pale yellow body topped with a finely laced white head. Herbaceous and grassy with a light sour barnyard flavor with some of that saltiness in the background. The high carbonation give the beer a very creamy texture for such a light beer. Floats away leaving just a light bitterness along with the earthy qualities behind. Very tasty and refreshing.

spilledpint (352) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 10, 2011
12 oz. bottle from some place between Chapel Hill and Durham. Ar: Aroma is mild spice (clove), banana. Ap: Pours a beautiful hazy blonde yellow into my tulip with a frothy off-white head. Decent retention, little lace. T: Moderate level of sweet spice up front: clove and ginger notable. Finish has a nice tartness, very little bitterness. Flavors are nice but they dont quite meld together. P: Medium body, not as sticky as some Saisons Ive had. Carbonation is medium-high. O: This is a nice beer. It is pretty sessionable for 7%+.

tmoreau (4225) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2011
On tap at Poor Phils in Oak Park, IL., displaying a clear, light golden hue, modest, white head foam that reduced rather quickly to a ring and film, but left some thick streaks and spots of lacing. The aroma was some funky yeast hints, light fruitiness, a hint of spice, and some light tartness. The flavor was similar notes of the same intensity, adding some lively carbonation with a subtle dryness, in a light body. Lost the alcohol, but a pleasant Saison 101 nonetheless.

48FanInCali (851) - California, USA - JUL 6, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pale gold pour with a fairly thin head and limited retention. Nose was typical saison but with more lemon and citrus notes. A bit sour on the nose. Taste followed the nose but with less of the tartness and more of the lemony, grainy presence. Pretty damn good for a larger produced micro saison.

Bottle. Musty lemon and barley malt aroma. Cloudy pale yellow color with large head. Musty sweet lemon peel and malt flavor. Very well made - an excellent beer.

Terminus (3669) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 22, 2011
tap at Hoppy Monk in El Paso, TX-pours hazy yellow with a fizzy white head. Nose is earthy lite spice and pheonols and lite lemon zest with tartness. flavors are grassy grainy and spicy with lots of zest. dry on the finish-pretty tasty! pretty good for a big regional brewery. I will have to have more of this!
