Crushed with Jakebra at the Trinity Saison Fest. Nice fruity, earthy, kinda spicy nose. Looks like gonnorhea pee though. Pretty full bodied though with a great yeasty, slightly hoppy finish. A nice saison. Go Great Divide. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2009
Draught at Capone’s: Aroma of vegetables, yeast, and a hint of lemon. Poured yellow/gold in color with a small white head that lasted around the edges. Hazy. Sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of hops, yeast, spices, coriander and caramel. Medium body. Medium-dry texture. Average carbonation. Yeasty, lightly sweet, dry finish. Rciesla (5607) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Draft at capones. Pours a hazy golden body with a white head. Some light lemon grass and dry floral notes. Very tangy with a moderate amount of spice and earth. Reminded me mildly of an old Heavyweight offering which one im not sure of. bleeng (1705) - Houston not near Beersel., Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2009
22 oz bomber. Pale yellow, fizzy, slightly hazy small white head. Nose: Fruity, spunky, a bit horseblanket and perfumy, somewhat sweet. Taste: Bitter, alcohol a bit upfront, lemony, tart and drinkable. Nice interpretation of an American style saison. I’ll look for more of these. drjay44 (3892) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2009
22 oz. bottle. Pours a thin head with slight lacing over a light yellow (SRM 5) slightly cloudy body.....nose of spice, fruits and honey, and Belgian barn yard funk....tastes of light lemon, bit of banana, bit of bubblegum, coriander, slightly sweet to start then dry finish....mouth feel is light. A very interesting, refreshing ale which really meets its style.

Bottle (22oz). Shared by tupalev with me, blankboy, garthicus and gregclow - did Jeff provide ALL the beer for this tasting?!!! Thanks again, Jeff!. Cloudy gold pour with a swirly, creamy off-white head (3+). Aroma of banana, pear, yeast, dry spice, some alcohol and plenty of grassy bitterness to tie it all together. The taste follows - lots of clover and lemon; tingly: good. Lively mouthfeel, fruity, yeasty, with a sweet fruity/spicy linger. And excellent hoppy (but not over-hopped) take on a saison - we quite liked it. darkguardian (733) - Florida, USA - JUN 7, 2009
22oz bottle. Pours a hazy gold. Its definitely a saison. Nose is yeasty sweet with light spiciness and lots of grassy, hay filled lemon notes. A somewhat off putting cleanser note is also present. Flavor has a great fruity light spicy flavor. Modest sweetness. Missing the spicy profile of the best saisons. A pretty solid effort from a pretty solid american brewery.

Pale yellow with a Brussels laced head. Piquantly phenolic nose that pricks and tickles. Tart wheat fields and zingy yeastiness. Body is charcterized by Belgian funk and is full-bodied, phenols are much less pronounced. Zingy body and indistinct spiciness. Crisp. A great saison to start the summer.

Bottle shared with Hogtown Harry, Garthicus, Blankboy, and GregClow, courtesy of me and my trip to Denver. Nice lemony yellow, small white head. Mild zesty aroma. Good taste - very yeasty, bitter, dry. Quite enjoyable and better than the scores here suggest so far. dchmela (3088) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2009
Bottle shared with Ian. Pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is wheaty lemony and tart. Nice light malty taste with hints of grass and lemon. Refreshing and tasty, works well by the pool on a summer day.
