On tap at MacGregors. Poured golden with a white head and not much lace. A little spice and funk in the aroma. Spice and pepper in the flavor. Saison, not my style. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 22, 2013
draft, starter saison, light floral notes, light perfuminess, lemon pith. did not gather a tone of maple. ok McGarnigle (653) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Growler from the Malt & Market on monroe Ave. Looks quite attractive, golden and clear. Alas, this is a very mellow Saison. Slight yeasty spice and botanical, but not much funk. I don’t detect any maple. The temptation is to say their heart wasn’t in it, or perhaps they thought this custom brew was for a civilian crowd and needed to be toned down. But ST has struggled with this style before. MacBoost (1924) - Victor, New York, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Tap at macgregors penfield. Pours a clear golden color with a puffy white head. Aromas of sweet corn, some yeasty esters. Taste is quite dry with some spice/pepper. Finishes dry And slightly bitter. It’s ok. jb (3301) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2013
On tap at the Dinosaur. Was surprised to see this as I’d never heard of it. I’d have never guessed the style. Not much funkiness, or spiciness that I detected. I thought it was a Pils, based on a mild hop backbone and not much else.
