Pour is a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is sweet honey and barnyard. Flavor is a decent fresh fruit with some white wine and vinegar. Finish is bone dry and a little tart. No real mustiness or pepper which I like in a saison are found. This was tart and sweet. Found in a bargan bin for 7 bucks. jtclockwork (16436) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2013

Poured from a 750ml bottle. This is a very yeast driven saison. Fruity, banana, some rustic yeasty farmhouse qualities. A good beer, but not that great of a saison. anders37 (26137) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2013

from a 750ml bottle bought at Peluso in Montreal.
Aroma: cereal and grain with little lemony accents and Candi sugar.
Appearance: Hazy blond / straw developing an average thickness head, creamy and long lasting. Head is sticking well to glass leaving a good lacing.
Taste: We can well feel the Belgium yeast doing the work here with peppery and acid notes. Hops are at work also, leaving a floral bitterness that last for a long time. Acidity and bitterness are the main characteristics of this beer. Flavor notes are light but mainly Candi sugar, pepper, grain and cereal. A farm taste with a slight acidity. A good traditional season within style. Johnsense (1624) - - MAR 30, 2013
Cloudy gold pour, huge head. Aroma of funk, cloves, very yeasty. Taste is reminiscent of a tripel, belgian yeast, clove, slight pepper, banana, saison barnyard funk. Fairly tart. Getting lots of rye as well. Medium body. I’ll call is a saison hybrid, and one thats very refreshing after a long day of runnng errands. pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - MAR 28, 2013
On draught at Apex. Deep hazy golden color. Tart fruit aroma. Taste is banana, peach, pepper. Full-bodied for a saison. AdamsBeer (12) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2013
delightfully smooth and tastes best when accompanied by gangstarr over the loudspeakers at bar volo.
"down the gullet." GuillaumeCL (344) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2013
Pours a hazy dark yellow-brown with a small amount of white head that lingers for a while. Smell is fairly sweet, with some vanilla, some spice, and maybe a hint of funk. Palate is medium bodied with good carbonation. Taste is a bit weird, this is much more of a tripel than a belgian saison. Quite sweet at first then follows with a bit of bitter and a bit of sour, the aftertaste is slightly better and balanced with sweetness. Interesting overall, but not really what I think when I hear "rye saison."
