riversideAK (6229) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Nose of hay, dust, light spice, a touch of yeast, light lemon, a dash of earthy hops. Pours golden yellow, hazy, fizzy head. Flavors of light lemon, hay, dust, a little earthy, floral, mostly lemony in the finish. Dry finish, a touch of spice is there. Quenching, well carbontaed finish, light body, airy feel. Decent.

3fourths (9265) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 14, 2016
From bottle its mostly clear gold with a short but sticky head. Aroma is starchy grain, pale malt, hay, hops coming across as citrus juice and zest, along with a basic white pepper phenol and banana ester profile. Very reminiscent of so many other American-made saison. As it warms and breathes alcohol becomes noticeable, and the herbal qualities of the yeast become overbearing. In the mouth its medium bodied, lightly sweet, turning tart, bitter, and lightly sour in the finish. Tepid carbonation and basic malt with grating / crude phenolic expression.

Ernest (7467) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2016
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow, unfiltered. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, corn starch), lightly hoppy (herbs), lightly yeasty (basement), with notes of gum, banana, celery seed, coriander, fruit cocktail/syrup. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, husky. Light to medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. An ok rendition, but quite grainy/husky (aftertaste is like chewing on straw). A few other brews Ive tried from RR also suffered some huskiness at varying levels, so Im guessing the malt extraction isnt always the most meticulous. Aroma is a mix of good and not-so-good aspects, a bit Americanized and a bit crude in spots, but overall fine. Kinda disappointing in the end, given their solid lagers, but about average on a world scale.

Bulk_Carrier (4206) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - NOV 17, 2016
This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a light golden color with a quickly dissipating fingers worth of white foamy head. Clingy messy lace. The aroma starts off with a sticky floral to herbal sweetly malty to blended grassy hops. Some white pepper. The flavor brings a sticky sweet floral to sticky bready/yeasty malt. White pepper, again, but super light. Nice lean creamy sort of herbal to bready aftertaste with a wet sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a super nice smoothness on my tongue. Overall, really nice saison, very yeasty/bready, but very nice. Thanks Craig aka Sledeutah

Itzjerm (2453) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Not my thing. To much carbonation. Light sour which I think could really be done with out. Apple and carbonation. Not very enjoyable in my opinion. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells clean and citrusy. Pours cloudy with thick white head. Taste a little bit hop a little bit citrus. Tart but not too bad. I dont taste the "spice" but my palate isnt clean. Thin and crisp, not too shabby

Bottle. Golden beer with a big cream head. Yeast and light spice aroma with light citrus. Spice and yeast flavor with light citrus. Medium bodied. Spice and malt lingers with yeast.

bwa5879 (911) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 13, 2016
Cloudy very light orange pour with fluffy white head a quarter inch high. Awesome mellow saison aroma - waxy citrus rind, lemon, bit of pepper and hint of bubblegum. Pretty light carbonation, airy fluffy mouthfeel, crisp effervescent finish. Flavor closely matches the nose with more bitter pepper and earthy tones. Pretty great saison.

Bottle at avenues porter salt lake. Very clear light color, thin white head. Grassy saison aroma and taste. A little thin compared to some other examples but solid.

500 ml thanks to Sledutah. Yellow pour. Very yeasty. Somewhat lemon fruity nature to the taste. Not dry. Decent.
