Pouring at their booth at BCTC. Pours a hazy gold with a thin white head. Nice musk, caramel, coriander, lemon, and pepper. Thin to medium bodied and very crisp. Tangy, dry, and light. Very nice.

Bottle shared by Kyle at the Winter Solstice. Poured a pale gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of floral and fruit with a backing yeast and grain note. Flavor was similar with floral, fruit and sweet grain coming through with a bit of soap in the finish. hopscotch (11113) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2006
Bottle... Hazy yellow ale with a huge, frothy, white head. Terrific retention. Spicy, breadsy nose with banana, pale and fuzzy fruit esters, coriander phenol and dough. Sweet, fruity flavor up front, then gently bitter, slightly pungent and spicy on the backside. Medium-bodied and creamy with fizzy carbonation. Finishes a touch tangy then fairly dry. Without the cage, my bottle would’ve opened itself. Feisty! kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

750 ml bottle from michael-pollack- thanks again, Pollack! Pours a cloudy yellow-gold color with a big, fluffy eggshell white head and plenty of visible sediment. Aroma of farmhouse funk, grass, lighter spices like coriander and clove, bready malts, and mild tropical fruits. Flavor of grass, straw, herbs, bready malts, funk, pears, peppery yeast, and a bit of banana. Medium-bodied, with a good amount of soft carbonation and a bready mouthfeel and dry finish. Man, I had a lot of great saisons over DLD weekend for some reason. Good beer. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Tap at CK thanks to craftycarl21! Good foam. Sweet pear nose. Estery, bright, mild diaper phenols. Taste is juicy, clean pear. Nice dough and honey bread. Very good. Sweeter saison, could use more hop balance. Still, pretty nice.
