hotstuff (4921) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Rated on 9-25-2009 at Fort Wayne, IN Gathering. This bottled beer pours a very small white head that mostly diminished, some floaties, cloudy body with a tapioca hue, and next to no lacing. The Aroma is fruity, spicy, yeasty, and lightly tart. The Taste is tart, fruity, spicy, and has a dry finish. The Palate is spritzy and this beer is light-medium bodied. In conclusion, this is an easy drinking beer as the 7.3%ABV is well masked and is easy on the palate. I recommend trying this Saison.

bkurtz (1068) - MOROCCO - JAN 8, 2014
Pours a cloudy yellow with sweet citrus aromas (peach, tangerine). Complex, but there is an astringent note (not tart), that doesnt work.

Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 18, 2014
5oz sample at the brewery. Lemon-yellow cloudy beer, no lacing, small head, zesty aroma, just fruit and a little barnyard in it. Nicely done taste--good medium palate, just enough bitterness, more sour than sweet, not very complex but nothing bad in it.

floydslip (367) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Cloudy golden beer with a virtually non-existent white head. Pungent nose of preserved lemon, sour yeast, and grains of paradise. Flavor is light and crisp with some green apple, pear, and citrus followed by a heady bitterness. Good saison, not exceptional.

"Fruity and slightly tart is spot on. Light in body for the abv. Vibrant cloudy yellow, yeast driven for sure on the palate. I liked it, but Im hoping for standouts from GD. This was "pretty good.""
