On tap at Gabf. Pours a hazy orange with medium white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is floral, citrus, wheat, yeast. Thin body, citrus, wheat, light dry finish, good. tricksta_p (5366) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2017
From tap at BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Pours an uncharacteristically clear golden for a Saison, this doesn't bode well. Aroma is floral and herbal with lots of coriander, sweetish pale malt, soap, grain. Flavour is sweetish and mild bitter. Body is medium. Very spicy/herbal, bit too clean and soapy, I don't really like it. BelgianBeerGal (4256) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 8, 2017
Bottle from Chattanooga WF. Pours a clear gold color with a huge white head that lasts forever. The aroma is fruity esters and earthy yeast. Moderate bitterness with some orange flavors. Fine. obguthr (6832) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 1, 2017

Tap at Craft Brewed. Pours a clearish gold with a full finger of foam. Nice estery nose. Clove, banana bread, light grass. Soft and fluffy on the palate. Medium sweetness. Not as dry as I like but still a solid saison. Solid drop.

Bottle from Mantra, bought at Christmas- I’m loving this one. It’s got a nice body, with some nice spices to make it interesting. nuplastikk (6514) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 11, 2017
12oz bottle. Kind of an odd one. Buttery for a Saison which is really off-putting, not really a Saison. More of a bad Biere de Garde. Or not. Fair enough to call it a Farmhouse Ale, but it lacks any finesse. Could be marketed a lot better, considering it isn’t a Wit or a Saison. Not impressive at all and doesn’t make me eager to try other Mantra beer. SpringsLicker (3685) - Tennessee, USA - APR 2, 2017
Mostly clear yellow with a thin white head.
The aroma reminds me of unpicked apples fermenting on the ground.Spicy, grassy, fruity, acidic and funky.
The flavor is light fruity sweetness with spice.and yeast. Light, complex easy drinking

Tasty traditional saison from Mantra, hitting all the necessary farmhouse notes without adding unnecessary adjuncts or flourishes. Aroma offers up a lovely, boisterous blend of grassy meadow, bananas and cloves, and the pour’s absolutely gorgeous. Taste starts with a healthy witbier sweetness, wheat and spice and a mildly tart yeast undertone, then stays semidry as the malt gives way to a coriander-tinged bright finish. Cloves and grass become prevalent on the back end, and the fade alternates between a slight bitterness and bread. Pitch-perfect saison feel. Delicious. shadey (2171) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 25, 2017
12oz bottle. Pours pale yellow with some gentle bubbles. Quickly diminishing head. Aroma is lightly sweet and gently spiced. Flavors come together nicely and smoothly. Body is very smooth and easy to drink. Very nice, if a touch sweet.
