Tmoney99 (14844) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate fruit, hop and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet yeast flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectation where met.

piscator34 (2621) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 19, 2011
Bottled sample via and shared with oakbluff. Gold in colour with strong carbonation. Aromas are of lime peel, Cream of Wheat cereal, and peppery spice. While many of the flavours are what you’d expect from a saison (lime pith, marshmallow, wheat, and pilser malt), there was also a very strange mineral note that was a bit iron-like. Dry finish with a fairly light body. Not bad, but the weird mineral thing was a negative for me.
