ajnepple (6147) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 10, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours pale, golden and hazy with one finger of white head that retains nicely yet leaves little lacing. Yeasty nose, tropical fruit, wheat malts and earthy. Medium body with a sticky, dry texture. Somewhat creamy and smooth feel. Flavor is wheat-like malts and earthy yeast with a mild fruity hop flavor, faint bananas and vanilla. Refreshing saison.

maekchu (3764) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 11, 2013
Bottle from Five Points Bottle Shop (Atlanta Highway) in Athens. Pleasant juicy aroma, with some light citrus spritz. Cloudy light pear juice color. Initial is sweetish, lightly yeasty and barny / bits of lemon punch through in mid palate / final is mildly sweet. Refreshing stuff, but not very complex. Is this Great Divides first go at the style? Not great, but not bad. Doesnt have the fresh kick or brightness of a really good one.

rollinsr (660) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JUN 12, 2013
Pours light golden with white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is light with some banana and clove esters. Flavor is also light, fruity and refreshing with no noticeable bite for a 7.3% beer. Not the greatest beer I have had, but certainly a repeat purchase.

hotstuff (5078) - 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 (1075) - 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.
