COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American hopped saison.

Editor’s note: The 2009+ versions are spiked with Brett at bottling. Bottles from 2009 are marked as such, although 2010 and 2011 bottles appear to not note the vintage on the label, but might be printed on the neck or base.

drowland (8888) - Georgia, USA - JUL 6, 2011
6/8/11. 750mL bottle courtesy scotchzi. Cloudy golden pour leaning towards orange with a fizzy white head that fades. Slight banana and esters on the aroma with big spices. Fruity, yeasty flavor with a hint of spice and lemon peel. Nice!

gvmdw7 (188) - California, USA - JUN 30, 2011
Golden with little head. Smells a little if lemon, but not much else. Tastes strangely similar to Aventinus with banana and clove, but much lighter bodied. I think it was served too cold.

3.2
espenra (1017) - Kurland, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2011
75cl bottle at Håndverkerstuene. Shared with two fellow beergeeks. Hazy golden orange colour with a minimal head. Aroma is yeasty, notes of Bret, as well as bread and some citrus. Flavour is Bret yeast, dough, and some citrus later on. Decent saison, but not my favorite, mostly because of the Bret.

3.8
Shag (3028) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 22, 2011
Golden color with a white head. Aroma contains lemons, yeast, barnyard. Flavor is sour with a slight bitterness. Some vinegar, citrus, and bread notes. A sour finish. This is like guezue light, but good.

pineypower (3346) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Bottle shared thanks to Dmac. Pours out a cloudy straw color with a moderate head. Aroma is of fruity esters, lemon, and some slight funky brett. Taste is very complex and smooth, fruit, lemon, light spice, brett and a light tell of the alcohol. Pretty awesome stuff.

3.7
murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Bottle at RBSG Philly. Gold with white head. Aroma is very similar to the 2008 with lots of yeast and lemon, but with a very nice funky brett as well. Taste is the same, complex and flavorful, very enjoyable.

efdejesus (93) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUN 19, 2011
Bomber poured into a tulip. Pours a cloudy golden color with a huge fluffy white head. Aromas of yeast. Bitterness and spices up front. A funky base is apparent throughout. Warming alcohol affect is detectable but not overpowering.

dmac (6395) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 18, 2011
750 ml cork and caged bottle purchased at Capones during the RBSG bus crawl. Poured a light gold body that was slightly hazy underneath a HUGE foamy bright white head. Aroma of lemons, funk, bread, yeast, spices, corriander and a hint of brett. Lighter to medium body along with very strong and very foamy carbonation. Flavor of lemon, funk, spice, bread, brett and yeast. This was one solid beer.

jtclockwork (16857) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Bottle at RBSG. Pours clear amber gold. White head. Nose/taste of Brett, grape, grassy hops, lemon zest and yeast. Medium body.

3.5
Nuffield (4187) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 5, 2011
Described by the bar as a "dry hopped saison", this had some interesting grape, floral and pear notes, with a moderate body and definitely drinkable profile. Decent. (on tap at Toronado, San Francisco)
