PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2008
Tap at Barcade: Golden with good clarity for a Saison, and a fading white head. Estery aroma. Has a Belgian yeast character. Fruity with some apple skin, anise and a touch of bubblegum sweetness. Carbonation is frothy, yet sticky simultaneously. Starts sweet with mild bubblegum, honey and apple-like notes. There’s a note of sweet Belgian malt in the middle followed by a spicy, grassy, peppery finish. A decent example of the style, although the flavor don’t mesh very well.

Sammy (11501) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2008
The smell is a bit barnyard, with lots of malt behind it. The taste, from a medium plus mouthfeel,is hoppy and mildly spicey, and is a bit astringent in the finish.Drinkable though not best of style.Orange with off-white head.

Draft @ Phoenixville location on 15 Oct 2012 got a 10 oz. pour. Pale, clear yellow color. Average carbonation without much head. Nose is a mild wheat, grain and light spice. Flavor fell right in line with the aromas. Very thin body. I dont know, something about this just really didnt do it for me. Either Im missing something or I wasnt in the mood for it. I would order the Grisette before thinking about this one. Not bad in anyway maybe I will give it another try at a later date.

kramer (6313) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2005
On draft, Phoenixville location. Poured a golden straw with nice 1/2 head. Aroma of banana, spices, belgian yeast. Flavor is ok with a general spicyness, wheat, clove, and with a very mineral finish. Palate was the highling of this beer for me, nice velvety mouthfeel with good carbonation. Overall this is a decent beer, but it lacks intensity on every front. None of the barnyard/complex flavors and aromas of a true Belgian Saison. As if brewed not to offend anyone. Very clear pour, needs more yeast and funk in there. Wheres the funk?
