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.

jgb9348 (5911) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 11, 2016
Hazy golden coloured body with an orange glow and a thinnish, single centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of wheat, canned corn, grass, hay and a lot of coriander seed. Medium-bodied; Very assertive wheat flavours with a big malt profile, some subdued sweetness from honey, grass and a little funk from the yeast. Aftertaste shows some honey along with bunches of coriander seed and not much else - not much of a saison at all. Overall, a pretty unassuming beer with no real good flavours nor complexity, especially for the style. I sampled this snifter on draught at the Brewpub in Chicago (Kedzie Ave), Illinois on 11-May-2016 for US$6,00 while here in Chicago.

Very different beer. Fruity smell. Darker yellow pour with sticky white head. Lots going on with the taste I can't put my finger on. But somehow comes out good. Yeasty? Peppery? I think! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft pour at the source. Pours a hazed copper with a thin white head of foam. The aroma has big ester notes with some dry, herbal qualities. Some sweetness comes through, but it is mostly a dry herbal bitterness. Medium carbonation.

Bottle (22 oz). Thanks to Rich for this one! Clear golden with a medium white and some lacing. Aroma is of Saison yeast, citrus, floral/herbal notes and light spiciness. Taste is yeasty with light spiciness, biscuity malt, citrus, floral/herbal notes and light bitterness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Dry and citrusy finish. Simple and tasty Saison. Alcohol is well hidden. Drinkable.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2014
I’ve had a bomber or few of this from the local grocery store. (Sadly, they don’t stock it anymore.) The body is clear and golden with a short-lived sudsy head. It has a warm pale malt sweetness to the aroma, candy-like, with some floral scents and a bit of funk. It tastes of a floral bitterness followed by a soft sweetness and a hint of apple. The finish is dry and mildly bitter. Pretty decent stuff.

TimE (5372) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 14, 2016
Medium dark golden color. Frothy white head. Yeasty spicy nose, modestly hoppy. New world take on this style, which usual results in a poorly executed beer and this is no exception.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy amber with an off-white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, light fruits and apples, and some pale and caramel malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not bad but not the best of the style.

Sampled at brewpub. Came in the glass a hazy gold with a wisp of a white head. Nose of funk. Medium body. Flavor is ripe fruit and barnyard. Some spice in finish Good.
