Draught @ Bottleworks:   Golden, a little fiery, thin to moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Soft mealy nose, light honey.   As it warms a bit of pale breadiness shows up.   Sweet pale breadiness with a touch of mealiness on the tongue.   Soft honey is also present.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finish shows a slightly earthy hint.   Lingering mealiness.   Tiz okay, but lacks the musty or bright herbal notes of most other Belgians.

Clear amber color with ivory head. Mild floral hop, mild light fruit, light pale malt aromas. medium body, average carbonation. Lighty sweet pale malt flavors with mild floral hoppage--nice easy drinking ale-- after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Tap at sb. Pours a clear medium gold with a loose white head. Big sweet honey nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Gentle caramel and sweet honey on the mid palate with a gentle herbal finish. savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Growler. Murky reddish brown with a fizzy beige head. Aroma of spicy yeast esters, musty/earthy, caramel, bread and honey. Flavor is zesty yeast, caramel and doughy malt, light tartness and no alcohol taste. Medium body with lively carbonation. Ok beer, kind of all over the place and not a refreshing saison. bvc (1242) - Washington, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Draft. This is a saision?...wouldn’t guess that by looking at it thin clear darker tobacco brown with minimal tan head. Sweat caramel malt, light green hay, bit of hazelnut and a light metallic twang backbone. Lifeless carbonation, thin. Peppery sweet oat, charred nuttiness, some hay, twangy finish. This isn’t good.

On tap at Pike Brew Pub, Seattle. Uninspiring taste and aroma... By far not my best honey beer... BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Drank this at the winter ale fest in Seattle. Very nice tasty Belgian ale. DuffMan (10609) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 26, 2012
On tap @ the brewpub. The server called this a rye and honey saison, but I’m not confident that it is a different brew from this listing. Hazy medium gold, average white head. Aroma is sweet bready malt with old hay lying in the hot sun, spicy nuances. Grassy and spicy, lightly estery, on a sweet pale malt base. Interesting and very tasty, but I’m not sure I’d have guessed this to be a saison. Dogbrick (13547) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a clear dark golden color with a medium thin white head that evaporates to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of mild hops and biscuit malt. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, fruit and sweet malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a short herbal hops aftertaste. Decent overall. corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Draft at the brewpub in Seattle.
Pours a dark golden yellow/straw color with a two finger frothy white head that slowly fades into a lasting ring. Sporadic streaks of lacing left behind.
Slightly earthy aroma with a touch of zesty spice, light fruit and subtle honey. Funky saison yeast notes with grass, straw and bread followed by coriander, earthy hops, apples and honey.
Medium bodied but fuller than expected with a nice balance of funky saison yeast, zesty spice, sweet fruit and honey. Some earthy farmhouse yeast notes up front along with subtle grassy hops followed by peppery coriander in the finish. Some sweetness mid palate with lots of honey, apple and pear balancing things out. Not very complex but well balanced and easy to drink.
