j12601 (13093) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Bottle at James’ mead tasting. Pours a clear golden orange with a thin white head. Old malt and a touch of sweetness. A bit of age and oxidization. Sweet and toasty, slight sour touches around the edges. Sweet malt on the finish.

Thanks to Jale for picking this up for me at Summer Solstice, 2011 bottle... pours a bright and clear dark gold, bright white head with a great ring and lace, looks great... the nose has lots of sweet malt and alcohol on the end, a bit of floral musk but pretty muted, this could use some work... the taste is super sweet and alcohol too, doesn’t really taste like a saison at all... disappointed in this one

Couple year old bottle shared by the Kuhnhenn brothers. Cloudy pale body with a large white head. Perfume and flowers in the nose along with dough, cotton candy and a touch of honey. The taste is light to moderately sweet, lightly bitter with herbal/floral hops, cotton candy and pears; Just a touch of oxidation, but it goes well with the dusty yeast. Medium body is very soft with moderate carbonation.

Had a Kuhnhenn Summer Solstice. Pours page yellow with thin white head. Aroma of lemon, cloves, wheat. Tastes of light citrus, wheat, cloves, coriander. Quenching medium mouthfeel. Pretty decent saison.

Styles (2016) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - MAY 16, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2011 Bottle shared by the brothers K, and on tap. Hazy dark golden, with average white head. Aroma has a nice balance of floral and citrus up front, fruity esters, light pepper. faint grass, light pils malt background. Flavor on par, pils malt comes through a little more. For everything going on, really clean. Could be a tad drier. Medium carbonation. Well done.

Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - FEB 10, 2007
On tap: The aroma has strong yeasty notes with moderate apple, peach, and faint spice. It’s a transparent golden-orange with a small white head. The flavor starts with a big yeasty kick. There is moderate apple in the middle and finishes mildly spicey with a hint of sourness. I have to say I’m pretty suprised by the overall rating.

Sammy (12725) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 31, 2007
At the brewpub, one additional reason to go there. Bit of alcohol incredibly in the aroma. Yellow with a bit of foam. Bold taste with tartness, then honey and spices aftertaste.Honey offsets the dryness characteristic of this style. Aggressive carbonation.

bgburdman9 (861) - columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2007
On tap at the brewery. Fruity and citrusy in the aroma with a little funkiness but its very light. Pretty sweet but still pretty good overall. I thought this would be a little higher when i looked it up.
