Tap, golden color with off white head. Slight sweet tasting with hints of malt and spice. Easy to drink but a little bit above average beer. otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2010
Appearance: hazy straw which start to clear up near the bottom as she settles in my glass. Little head to speak of, though a white collar clings tightly to the sides.

Nose: lemon, dough, and spice ohmy. Lemon bars with just a slight sugar dusting for sweetness while her otherwise tartness reigns. Softness to the nose which belies soft white breads while key lime and lemon grass tickle the back.
Palate: bright atop my tongue; lemon bars. Moves into soft doughy white breads with a hint of leather and spice in the finish. A solid yeasty chewy quality to the entirety of our session together. Lemon bars settle once more, this time upon the top of my tongue, lingering long after each quaff. An earthen leather funk is a gentle stream underneath, there but not dominant. Key lime teases in the very back.
Final Thoughts: overall, a dandy of a saison which is in and of itself a loose style with even looser interpretations. That being said, she was of the seasons and of the earth. Thanks sis for yet another tasty brew!
Poured from bottle into my favorite tulip glass.
Pours a very clear golden color. Slight head with no lacing. Smells of cloves and slight banana. Smooth taste. Very little to no hop flavor. Dry after taste.
This is a beer for the summer time, although I am drinking it mid-winter in MN, oh well.
Drinkable for sure!

16 oz. can pours a hazy apple juice color with a small dissipating white head. Aroma has Belgian yeast, spices, and orange. Tastes sweet with a slightly bitter finish. Medium body with lively carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. Veryt refreshing on a hot day. Strangebrewer (1309) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 4, 2014
bottle. Poured hazy straw coloured with a thin white head. Faint citrusy wheat aroma. Light body, prickly carbonation, dry finish. Flavour of light malt, yeasty with lemon citrus and a hint of spice.

(on tap, served way too cold) Poured hazy light gold with a thin white head. Aroma is predominately orange peel, coriander, and a decent hit of bready yeast as well. Further warming intensifies these aromas, and a light hint of funk is revealed. The taste is standard saison fare, with coriander, more orange zest, with an underlying sweetness giving way to a pleasant cracker-like finish. All in all, this was quite good, and it would serve well as a sessionable beer in the warmer summer months. mnurda (1285) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 9, 2017
Draft sample at JW Marriott Minneapolis. Pours Holden with medium head. Spicy notes. Hoppy. Refreshing

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, golden yellow, no real head or lacing. Aroma of banana, cloves and yeast. Taste is sweet and fruity, yeast and spices. Dry finish. This is probably pretty good during hot summer days although I’m drinking it in the middle of a Minnesota winter... Not bad, drinkable. commonshawn (1259) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Straw color. Tap. Nice floral aroma. Slight sweetness but good balance. Very good standby beer that’s easy to drink. Not girly, despite the name. Well maybe a little girly. commonmac (1246) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Tap pour in a pint glass at Moto-i. Little to no head or lacing for a very appealing beer in color. Epitomizes a saison with a grainy, bready initial taste followed by a slightly sweet end. Definitely no hint of bitter to be found. A pretty good option for a summer day.
