It is light amber and has little in the way of head. It has aromas of fruity esters, cherries, and some funk. The favors have some cellar flavors, fruity esters, cherries, grainy pils, and sweetness. It has a moderate body.

Draft. Clear golden yellow color, medium white head. Aroma of rising bread dough, subtle pepper. Taste is bready straw, light body. OK.

Xenon (131) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - JAN 19, 2016
I do taste the apple and pear that they claim in the deScription, which adds a pleasant tartness to the beer. I cant say I love it or that its a complicated beer, but this one makes for a good session type beer. Not as spicy as a normal saison, but lacks the complexity and the deep belgian yeast flavors. Almost tastes like it had flavors added afterward to a relatively sterile base.

On tap at Blue Dream curry. Decent saison- better than score indicates. Super dry and crisp with a nice clean finish. Saison notes apparent but not overpowering. Love the apple/pear tartness with the spice notes of the yeast. Pretty tasty. Nice with spicy curry.

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - APR 6, 2015
Poured from bomber an orange and amber hue, forming a light beige craggy head of foam. Aroma of grass, malts, slight floral hints along with some raisin like clues. Flavour much of the same, reminds me more of a dubbel. Ok, but not memorable.

From a 22 oz bottle. Pours a murky brown with an ecru head. Floral nose. Flavors of cardoman and tropical frujits. Smooth, clean finish.

Getbetter (1033) - East Palo Alto, California, USA - DEC 8, 2013
From a bottle.The pour is a cloudy bright orange with no head.I taste a lot of pear and hop bitterness.I actually like this saison than most Saison for the lack of over herbal.

22 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market, Elizabeth City, NC (listed on the label as 6.5% ABV). Dark orange pour with a bubbly off-white head. Aroma of banana, Belgian yeast, faint barnyard, and just a hint of red apple. Smooth, well-balanced flavors of ripe banana, pear, apple, and faint alcohol. Personally, I have had saisons that I liked better than this one. However, this seems like a good entry-level interpretation as it avoids some of the bitter flavors some people may find offensive.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 8, 2013
On tap at Tylers, Durham. With a bit more weirdness, this could be construed as Mysterys tweak on a Fantome brew. That is to say, its a relatively under-carbonated amber brew with a medium yeasty and heavily fruity nose. Flavors are for the most part bready and sweet-ish, emphasizing the fruit once again. This takes it away from the direction I tend to like my saisons heading, but it werent too bad.
