Not the best saison ever, but it does offer a light summertime feel with hints of lemon and funk. It’s does have a fizzy sweetness but there does seem to be enough yeasty character to sustain the flavor. The body and finish is very light. I could drink this on a beach in Hawaii.
Gold pour, small white head. Aroma of lemon and herbs. Lemongrass and biscuit flavor. Braudog (6675) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 27, 2017
Can. At first I thought this a beefy pour, with some big body. But it quickly settles into a fairly light think, which I guess would fit the style ... not a negative comment.
The aroma is pretty pleasant, rife with fruit and perfume. This drinks very well,
quite well balanced. A great blend of traditional saison styles with a unique twist.
Very good. (#6582, 4/27/2017) wlajwl (6749) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 21, 2017
Aroma is Belgian yeast, spices/mild vegetables and a hint of vanilla. The flavor is fruit/lemon candy, Belgian yeast, malts and a spicy/slightly tart finish. Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 15, 2017
Slight haze, thin head, has a light lemongrass note. Muddled, esters and sticky phenols. Not well composed and not much lemongrass. fiulijn (20427) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 28, 2017
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 5.2% ABV

Hazy to cloudy golden color, small head. In the aroma, light fruit, light yeast spices, and some candy. The mouthfeel is lean, not too dry; delicate malts, delicate fruity esters, and very low bitterness, which makes it feel like sweet beer.
Nice light Ale.
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out considerable saison yeast and a touch of lemongrass. Flavour is much more expressive on the lemongrass, with saison yeast and lots of fruity esters. Too yeasty, sweet and estery. Not very pleasing. obguthr (6301) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 25, 2017
Can: Mild white grape, funk, and lemongrass nose. Clear golden, thick head, some retention. Much more intensity on the palate than the nose. Lime, white grape. Medium body, moderate carbonation. bconch (408) - - MAR 17, 2017
Yellow pour, nose of grass, lemon and some clove. Taste follows with a pale finish. djd07 (14366) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2017
On tap at Hughies. Pours a hazy yellow gold with medium frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong citrus, wheat, yeast, oat. Medium body, yeast, spice, citrus, wheat, light finish, decent. DocJitsu (1972) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2017
Pours a cloudy light golden with a white pillowy head. Fruity saison nose. Banana, green grape, bubble gum, circus peanut flavors. Stale flavor at the finish.
