Pour out of 22 oz bottle, thanks to matboz! Clear orange pour with thin white head, aroma has notes of grain, grass, hints of pear, white grape, touch of sour grain, nice earthy notes, slight caramel and crackery notes. Taste is a mix of sour acidic grain, funky earthy notes, touch of spice, grass, touch of grainy and husky notes, finishing fairly bitter, dry, slightly sweet.

Thanks to TNT for the bottle. Light body with a bit of grain. Heavy pepper and phenols in the nose. A bit of booze comes through in the flavor. Crisp and dry. vyvvy (6400) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Sampled at the Midwest Belgian Beer Fest 2012 - pours clear-ish yellow with a white head. The aroma has earthy yeast, rich malt and Belgian yeast fruitiness. It has a medium / full body with a mild amount of soft carbonation. The flavor starts a bit warm with earthy mushy maltiness along with the aroma traits. The finish is earthier and shows more alcohol presence than I’d like. Okay saison. nuplastikk (6225) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Orange-tan, tulip glass. Dry lemon pepper aroma. Dry and sweet, with some underlying funkiness. Captures the style well, maybe leaning a little to the sweet side. Some twisted melon notes. A nice Saison, but not as nice as I remembered it being the first time. Quite peppery, yet sugary. OK. ccex (1288) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2012
22 oz bottle from Treasure Island foods, Hyde Park, Chicago. Pours a hazy golden color with small white head. Aroma is full of yeast, apricot, cloves, grass, and something from a barnyard. Taste is sweet at first, then spicy, and finally driy. Medium body with enough carbonation to keep the mouthfeel lively. A very good saison, made in the warehouse where I worked for 6 years (it was a computer recycling center before it became a brewery).

Draft sample at MWBBF. Pours a cloudy gold color with a small white head. Aroma of bready malts, farmhouse funk, straw, apricot, and some grass. Flavor of bready malts, lemon, candi sugar, apricot, farmhouse funk, straw, and mild spice. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a mostly sweet mouthfeel. Nice saison. lcherre (6) - - JUL 30, 2012 does not count
Had it at the MWBBF and it was awesome! Had great citrus/spicy notes with a dark yellow color GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - JUL 19, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Very floral. Some spice and banana flavor. White head with some very nice lacing. A little too sweet for me on this, but some interesting flavors. BVery (10328) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUL 11, 2012
