Hazy golden with a lasting white head. Fruity and malty aroma with a nice mineral touch. Dry and refreshing fruity flavour with a bit of alcohol. Very authentic saison.

Big thanks to yourefragile for grabbing a bottle of this for me. Served in a Mikasa tulip. Pours a clear light golden color with loads of visible carbonation bubbles that continue all the way down. Big fluffy white head with a sheet of lacing on the sides of the glass. Great retention, as it settles to a half-inch cap for the duration. The nose is clean with some light spicing and a very faint fruitiness. A touch of earth in the background. Everything is a bit muted, which is a bit surprising given how heavy the carbonation is; I would have thought that those little bubbles would have been pushing out a bit more aroma, especially as it warmed. Flavor is much more intense than the nose with some nice spicy yeast notes plus a bit of apricot and pear. Other stone fruits in there as well. Some white pepper through the finish. It gets a touch fruitier as it warms up. The feel is dry and somewhat bitter. Very crisp. Body is light to medium. Overall, this is a very nice sipping beer and great for warm weather on the deck. Recommended.

A salmon red color with a good amount of white head. Excellent aroma of flowers, grass, lemon, orange peel, perfume and spice. Tastes more like a summer beer, but good nonetheless. Taste is citrus, yeast and spice. Light body and frothy with a small amount of carbonation.

Pours a nice golden color, with large offwhite head. Floral and spice aromas, with nice malts and funky saison yeast flavors. Effervescent and soft on the palate. A fine Saison overall.

Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet and spicy. Flavor is zesty herbal hops, sugary malts, and nice yeast spice. Easy going saison. Very nice.

Pours a hazy birght yellow with a nice white film. Aroma is doughy and lemonzest. Flavor doughy yeasty base with lots of lemon and banana. Very nicely balanced and refreshing with no hint of the alcohol. Overall, a winner.

750 ml bottle thanks to Dan. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet spicy pepper and lemons. The flavor is smooth pale malts and some zesty lemon, a bit of pepper and earthy yeast. Very drinkable. Quite well made.

Cloudy with a creamy white head. Fruity, banana yeasty flavor. More of a summer beer. Liked well enough but not a favorite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle thanks to watson1977. Deep golden color with copious white head. Big citrus, apple, yeast, mild clove, perfume-like hops. Lemon citrus with mild sweetness, herbal hop finish. Slightly dry with lingering hops and watery dough flavor. Springy carbonation.
