wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 22, 2011
Pours a hazy yellow with a lingering film and some lace. Nose is phenolic and largely dominated by spices and few esters. Taste is strong with spices and phenolics. Some banana character and coriander. Flavor is a bit in your face but not bad. spritzy carbonated feel and light bodied. Medium to short duration.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Pours a pale golden color with a short lived spritzy head. Smells of beer and mild spices. Medium full nectar with ample residual effers. Mildly sweet with defined white spices, pineapple, pear, banana. Theres a bit of an astringency that is unsettling creating a dirty disposition. The finish is bittered nicely yet dirty.

alexanderj (3596) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAY 19, 2011
Bottle; seems I havent had a saison in a while. Poured a dull, cloudy amber-gold color with a medium to large white head. Aroma musty wheat, lemon, yeast, slight funky earthiness, and spice. Flavor was fairly mellow; banana, wheat, yeast, with a moderate sweetness and spice. Ok, but a bit bland.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2012 Not very unique. Nice but typical for style. Hazy gold. thin white head. Rubber aroma. A little too sweet. However, dont you love when someone says however? I like it better now. Liquor balls and rubber, eh Vancouver.

Cloudy pour with a mild hop and lemon aroma. A spicey, bitter bready flavor. Good for style.

IrishBoy (4156) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 16, 2011
12 oz bottle from a Summpler Sampler. Nose is slighty tart and yeasty-musty with some citrus, spice, and carmel thrown in. Very lightly hazy yellow with a medium pale yellow head. Flavor is corriander, cloves, and very light tartness. AFAIC one of the better Sam Adams.

draft at haymarket. pours hazy yellow with white head. nose has sweet honey and musty yeast, not much more aroma to it, rather simple. flavors of sweet lemons, musty, dirty yeast profile and rather sweet finish too. Thin and flabby feel. Sorta gross actually.
