To me this was like a cross. Between a saison a nd a triple, in the very best ways. A nice effervesceNt flavor with plenty of pop. A really excellent beer. Probably my favorite of the seven beers I had today dhunter151 (590) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Pours a hazy golden yellow with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Very refreshing and easy to drink. Good mouthfeel. Citrus, pear, yeast, some spice.

Hazy golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted malts, orange, spices, citrus, and light ginger. Taste of citrus, hay, spices, orange, light pepper, wheat, and a dry finish. jcr (2705) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 12, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2012 Bomber. Pale golden body. Frothy, off-white head, slowly diminishing. Spicy aroma of clove, coriander, toasted grain, pepper, grapefruit skin, citrus, mustiness. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Nice dry finish. Medium body, watery turning velvety texture. The spice is nicely integrated and understated unlike so many other "saisons." The initial tastes of coriander, mustiness and citrus get washed away by the pepper and bitterness. Nothing is dominant or overpowering, just as a well-made saison should be. Incredible, the flavors that are coaxed out of this beer, especially for 4.2% abv.

Clear crisp gold color. Wet farmy horse blanket funk smells. Grassy light spices in the flavor yeast taste for a bit then rinses away nicely.

22 oz bottle purchased at Metcalf Discount on 91st Street, Overland Park, Kansas. Pour is light haze yellow golden with a pure white two inch head. Aroma is initially a touch skunked, though that opened up and blew off quickly, revealing a really soft and natural cereal grain, wheat, grass, hay, and a nice herbal yeastiness lingering behind. Nice nose. The taste is equal measures of the cereal wheat grain and the soft herbal grass. Nicely balanced, nuanced, integrated. Even a subtle hint of citrus. The palate is medium to light bodied, soft carbonation and the lingering herbal finish. Closes out dryly with some mineral. Really well done Saison, very much in the traditional style, steers clear of the typical sweet mess of the American Saison. Bravo Green Flash. jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Draft at Jerry’s. Pale gold with big, foamy, white head / Delicate, stylish nose of banana, lemon, coriander / Light body, somewhat resinous, a tad thin but otherwise fine balance and dry finish / Flavors of lemon, banana, ginger, soap, resin, and coriander / A lovely, light, indeed summer saison, approaching a wit in character. ordybill (1758) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAY 4, 2015

christwagons, i will never get all these notes entered in. i’m not a 3rd of the way through the first notebook. damn you lack of internet access, damn you to hell.
light orange body with a lasting lacing head. a bit funky with a manure-ish plowed earth niceness in the nose. what is wrong with someone that describes something like that and likes it? taste hits me with rye peppery wheat , fruit, sweet caramel and a great yeasty sourdough finish. a nice easy drinker i could have all day.

At new Mira Mesa brewery tasting room. Classic light and fluffy Belgian bubble head that laces the tasting glass. Sturdy, bready body backs this up well. Super effervescent and bounces across your palate. Easy to drink. Not as spicy as the classics. Bit of tart in the finish. Really nice.
