Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a small white bubbly head that fades pretty quick. If the head on a saison doesnt look like a giant cumulous cloud, something is wrong. Aroma of hay, grass, light herbs, dough, cornbread, and lemon. Flavor of earth, hay, grass, herbs doughy cornbread malt and a bit of a mushroomy quality. Finishes bitter and dry with more mushrooms, earth, toast, and hay. Maybe slightly ashy, but that might just be the contrast between flavor and finish. Medium bodied, nearly light, high carbonation, but not that creamy or authentic in mouthfeel. Its a better attempt than New Belgiums Saison, but its still nowhere near where the style should be. Still, its a saison in a sixer, so its worth keeping on deck.

(12oz bottle). Pour hazy light golden color with white head. Very active carbonation. Aroma has grass, wheat, and some lemon. Taste is sweet malt with a bit of tart. Spiciness as well. Thin bodied with an oily texture. Finish is dry. Any ok beer that would be better if the abv were lower. Then, this would at least be sessionable. As it is, I wouldnt want to make this my drink of the night. (or day?).

Bottle. Hazy gold with a short, dense, foamy white head. Nose is grainy, yeasty, fruit laden and spicy. Mainly citrus fruit in the aroma with light tropical fruit notes, soft earthiness as well and hints of salt. Taste is mainly grains, doughy bread, yeast, lemon, soft spice, sweet malt, dried fruit and light earthiness. Body is light-medium and robustly carbonated. Finishes with more grains, sweet malt, sourdough bread, mild spice notes, tropical fruit, lemon, and big yeast notes.

JStax (5628) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2011
Poured from a refrigerated bottle into snifter. Appearance is a hazy gold with a dense white head that slowly dissipates. Lacing is sticky and webby. Aroma is a bit funky, there are notes of freshly cut granny Smith apples and some slight estery aromas. Smell is wonderful. Taste is initially tart and quickly moves to a spicy, estery tasty not unlike a hefe. Crisp and light body and mouthfeel. Very slight alcohol presence is buried in the spicy notes on the back of the tongue. Very enjoyable beer. Im glad I have some more of them.

12oz bottle. Poured into my Delirium snifter it had a nice orange hue to it, slightly hazy with a cloudy center. Aroma had hints of citrus and orange. Flavor was a little on the gingery side with slight sour notes. It wasnt a bad drink by any means but nothing really super exciting though.

Semi cloudy in appearance with a yellow color. Thin white head with good lacing. Head decipated rather quickly. Funky cheese, stagnat water, and toasted nuts come out in the aroma. Lemon, buttered artichoke hearts, and rubber are very noticeable in the flavor. Low in carbonation. It does have a smooth finish. Thin texture. At first i could not get past the aroma, but when i did the taste was amazing. Glad i tried it.

12oz bottle, pours a cloudy yellow. No head. Floral, doughy aroma. Taste is oddly the normal saison consistency, but a very odd almost hoppy finish that throws it all off.

I poured a 12 oz bottle into pint sized glass mug... The liquid is cloudy, pale and yellow with a thin filmy white head that stuck to the glass. The smell has a lot of Belgian yeast, salt, banana, clove and sour lemon. The taste starts with some tart lemon then you get some yeast and spice, banana and a grassy/ lemony finish. The beer is light bodied with stinging carbonation and a seriously dry finish. I really enjoyed this beer, it has a little something for everyone.

On tap at urge in Poway. Crystal clear pale yellow with effervescent strong white head. Nose is super subtle with bits of pineapple and yeast. Taste is bright and light with just a bit of wildness. Kinda chewy in the back. Estroyed the glass with gooey lace. Not bad but kinda uninspiring.
