willisread (3097) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - NOV 8, 2016
Bottle pour at Shelton Brothers. Good saison yeast character on the nose with some lemon, wheat and peppery aromas. Easy drinking and superbly balanced. Has a nice character with some hay and musty notes as it warms up. Lemon and hay on the finish. Clean, crisp and dry. Charming.

phaleslu (9854) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2016
Pour from a 750 ml bottle at the Shelton Brothers Festival, while I was standing in the 3 Fonteinen line. This was conveniently placed. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a small white head. A very traditional Belgian example - or at least what wed think of as one - despite being brewed in Quebec. Notes of banana, bread, yeasty esters, barnyard funk, herbs, and grass. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a funky, dry mouthfeel. Good beer.

b3shine (8574) - Indiana, USA - OCT 29, 2016
600 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks DuffMan). Looks good; a cloudy pineapple with ample fluffy eggshell head. Smells doughy, yeasty, and mildly tart with soft notes of wheat and orange. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

tightslice (1158) - Redwood City, California, USA - OCT 12, 2016
Bottle share at Evernote in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is bready, yeast, some hay. Taste is light bread, maybe crackers, some earthy hay and mild fruit zest. Nothing especially unique but had a Traditional Farmhouse vibe about it. Will try again after a long day of plowing a few fallow fields.

No Anchor, Seattlr. Lacing thin white foam. Bright orange highlights on soft gold. Clean yeast dominates the nose. Soft, clean banana sip, round soft body. Soft grass, very modest spice character. Nice drinker.

trevor211 (1675) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2016
Tap at No Anchor. Hazy orange. Floral and citrus notes on the nose. Juicy. Flavor follows, keeping a lovely floral background on a relatively sweet, fruit-forward saison. Nice.

Poured a hazy golden color with a white head. Aroma was of light spices, grain, sweet corn, yeast. Flavor was sweet, grain, light fake spice. Meh.
