I really like this saison for its unique and powerful yeast-character. It’s dry, golden with only a slight haze, and has minimal head but nice lacing. The yeasty spiciness and breadiness really comes through with a soft lingering on the back end. It’s great! closey22 (1952) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Hazy yellow with thin foamy white head; aroma of Belgian yeast bubble gum; Flava is wheaty yeasty w/ slight salty tang; feels light and crisp finishes dry and slightly hop bitter deliciosity (12) - USA - APR 8, 2013
Served on draft. Excellent mouth. Dry as a saison should be with a silky mouth, but could he a bit more crisp. Barnyard funk and sour oranges on the nose. Good mineral quality to the beer (they gypsumed the hell out of this one). Strong wheaty, bitter taste with some citrus notes. Overall, fantastic saison. The barnyard funk is strong with this one. If I didn’t know this was a Sixpoint beer, I wouldn’t have thought it was domestic. Best new saison I’ve had in a while. madvike (3264) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 20, 2013
On tap - Wow...surprised this one rated so low--I thought it was awesome. Pours hazy golden with a creamy off-white head. Nose is lightly spicy, with subtle herbal/grassy hops, pear, dry pale malt, and a dusty yeast. Taste is the same, with the fruitiness balancing out the mineral dryness. Full carbonation and a fluffy body. Great stuff--made it through my glass and wanted more. keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAY 15, 2013

Appearance: Pale hazy straw color, creamy coating.
Aroma: Earthy, citrus, spice.
Taste: Sweet malts, citrusy and earhty with light spice.
Palate: Medium body and carbonation.
Overall: Great saison.
On tap at 2SP. Pours a clouded deep straw yellow with a two finger white frothy head that retains well and leaves light patchy lacing. Aroma is lemon peel with some peppery tones, fruit juiciness and faint yeasty funk. Taste is citrus forward with lemon rind and grapefruit juiciness, with some peppery hop presence. A bit sweet but more dry and lemony than anything else. Light to medium body, high carbonation, dry and spritzy. LilBeerDoctor (3931) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2011
Growler. Pours a super hazy light orange (almost looks like a glass of less bright OJ) with a small white head. Aroma of bready malts, sweet light fruits, orange and citrus. Flavor is quite sweet and citrusy upfront with floral hops and a bready malt finish. Very pleasant saison, easy drinking, with a nice fruit dominance. Well done.

Tap @ Iona. Cloudy gold pour with a short, fine white head leaving moderate lace. Yeasty, Belgian nose. Medium-light body with fine carbonation. Lemon, pepper and toast up front, then it gets yeasty, toasty and very Italian bread towards the finish, along with a subtle late sweetness. stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2011
From Iron Abbey Sixpoint beer dinner. Notes only. Spicy. Banana. Citrus. Lemon. Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 22, 2012
THOUGHTS: A little more watered down than most saisons today so maybe it’s a little closer to the original saisons of the past. As it warmed the flavors erupted but it was still fairly light.
TECHNICAL: Unlabeled bottle from the brewery as part of prize pack. Poured a hazy, light to medium yellow with great carbonation and a gigantic, rocky, white head that nearly filled the glass and mostly diminished but extremely slow leaving excellent lacing. The aroma had light light-colored bread and pale malt; light herbal and grassy hops; light doughy, sweaty, leather, spicy, and peppery yeast; slight barnyard and funky yeast; light banana; and lemon. The initial flavor was moderately acidic, slightly sour and ever so slightly sweet; while the finish was moderate to heavily acidic and slightly sour with an average to long duration. There was pepper, lemon, lots of yeast, sour fruit, metallic and herbal hops, grassy hops, perfume hops, other spices and slight funk. The light to medium body was very dry with very fizzy carbonation and a dry and slightly astringent finish.
