Bottle. Pours a golden color with white head. Malty, yeasty, dusty, citrus flavors. Pretty decent. andrewje41 (4161) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Draft pour. Pours a dark gold with a unique sour apple aroma for a saison. Light ape flavor with some spice. A unique saison overall. Not bad, but definitely not what I expected. Pretty good. cubs (10693) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle @ Jon’s place on the 4th. Pours a cloudy yellow orange with a creamy off white head. Aroma has slightly dank, piney hops in the nose with fruity yeast, tropical fruit, and orange citrus. A touch tart. Slightly earthy, bitter hoppy flavor. Bready yeast. Lemon citrus. Fairly high bitterness. Kind of interesting but could use some work. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Draught at the brewpub. Pours a mostly clear light amber color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is floral and slightly sour, but without a lot of the saison funk you’d expect. Taste is fresh and slightly sour, with a nice bite to it. Seems like a decent inoffensive entry into saisons for the novice. DMLINAZ (337) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 19, 2014
From last month’s Total Wine summer beer tasting class. Lots of aroma here; good flavor. For both aroma and flavor: yeast; lemon; Belgian; clove; sharp; peppery. I’d definitely have this again.

Draught @ The Pike Brewing Co, Seattle, WAonceblind (10322) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Pours clear golden with a smooth head. Aroma of floral hops, crisp maltiness and earthy yeastiness with some spices. Taste is floral hoppy, spicy and yeasty with some earthy notes. Finish is hoppy and yeasty with some lingering bitterness. Okay hoppy saison.
Clear golden under a sticky and lasting foamy white head. Earthy floral and funky nose with hay and white flowers, leafy hops, and freshly milled wheat. Flavor is bright and full and fun with wheat and hay and oats and bright fruity tones like clementine and pear and guava and an earthy kiwi. Very tasty saison worthy of competing with any saison from Denver or Belgium. Prufrockstar (2132) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Bomber. Clear gold, wispy white head. Mineral, bubblegum, earth toast and grass. Reasonably dry with an ipa-level bitter finish that lasts. Medium body. Overall: okay local saison-ipa. Thewade (340) - USA - MAY 21, 2014
On draft at Yardhouse in Seattle. Excellent saison. Slight orange notes. Easy to drink and enjoyable. DiarmaidBHK (5671) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle from Total wine McLean. Pours orange with a thick white pillow head. Nice funkiness on the nose. Some nice hop virtue on the tongue but not as much of the barnyard as I was hoping. Finishes clean. Solid.
