On tap at Taste of Mill City Tavern Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Clear straw golden with a small white head, some lacing. Aroma of bananas and fruity esters. Taste of fruity esters and citrus
Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with very little white head on top. The aroma picked up a hefty dose of coriander, orange zest, and earthy spices over pale malts.. smelled dry, and was perhaps too assertive. The flavor found a little honey to join pale malts at the core.. again strong and spicy on the edges with tart orange zest and wheat leading.. coriander and white pepper as well.. long finish with tacky malts and spices. Light-medium bodied and a bit rough on the palate.. overall this was OK. Strykzone (7363) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2015
Sampled at great taste. Hazy gold with some white in it. Thin feel. Grassy with some lemon. Not enough here. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded fairly quickly. The nose is fairly restrained in the spice department, which is nice to see. Pale slightly bready malts with a nice yeast profile and some floral notes. The flavor is a little bland, the light spicing is better than going overboard, but there’s not a whole lot of softness or complexity to the malts. Tastes more like a generic "Golden/Blond Ale" than a a true Belgian style Saison, there’s no farmhouse character or funkiness at all. Medium bodied with slight stickiness and soft fizzy carbonation. An OK beer I guess, but a little lacking within the realm of the style. RobertDale (6483) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - NOV 3, 2010
12 ounce bottle. Pours a cloudy gold with a small white head. Aroma of spice, citrus and malt. Tastes of malt, bananas, yeast and corriander. Clean finish. Refreshing.

Yellow pour from 12oz bottle at home. Foggy with white head. Lemon, wheat and fruity aroma. Dry, test, flowery, lemon flavor. Average. Pound able. nuplastikk (6289) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 26, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2013 12oz bottle split. Hazy, pale, yellow-tan color, soapy off white head that fades into a thin, oily non-presence. Fruity sweet aroma, a touch of lemony funk. I almost get some peach notes in my first sip. Soft on the palate, well above par for an American Saison. Mellow fruity tones, with a gentle peppery hop balance. Fruity tangerine and sweet malt finish. Delicious and refreshing, this is one to seek out. Wow. jgb9348 (6268) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2016
Slightly cloudy golden coloured body with a thinnish, two centimetre tall pure white head and thousands of small bubbles rising from the bottom. Aroma of hay, grass, yeast, curacao, full oranges and a bit of caster sugar. Medium-bodied; Assertive sweet orange flavour with a mellow wheatie malt backbone with some yeast elements and hints of grass. Aftertaste shows some sugars from the caster sugar and oranges, but a bit of grass and the complex yeast strain as well comes through. Overall, a decent saison, but better beer in general - this tastes, looks and feels like a wit, so for that style, a good beer that should be sampled if you like the style and can find this! I sampled this sixteen ounce draught at Republic in Minneapolis Airport on 04-October-2016 for US$8,49. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 28, 2009
Lightly sweet, some straw, spice, banana, and light cereal malt notes. Hazy yellow, nice head. Wheat, cereal, grain, some orange, very carbonated. Very uninteresting. JK (6162) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2008 Tap and Stub & Herbs. This is a mid-grade saison. Certainly not comparable to something from Fantome or Blaugies, but for a new brewery in Minnesota, not bad at all. The cloudy color is right, but no sediment. The aroma has yeast, cloves, some citrus, along with the flavor that is more of the same but also includes some sugar. Medium palate. Lightly spiced. Some wheat. A decent first try. It needs more intense flavor.
