Sampled at mekong on draft after a homebrew meeting. Clear golden pour with small ring of whitish head. Sweet and grainy nose. Flavor is sweeyter than most saisons, and not quite refreshing. Drake (14033) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Served on draft at Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a hazy straw yellow color with a medium sized creamy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of grainy notes, bready, spicy notes, caramel and a nutty note. The taste is caramel, bready notes, nutty notes and a yeasty finish. Strong carbonation. Medium bodied. wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 23, 2011
Tasted on 1/23/11 on draft at Bruery Provisions. Pours hazy golden with an average, smooth, white head that recedes to a thin lace collar. The nose is earthy saison yeast, an interesting and unique malt aroma, and some spicy hops. The flavor is candi sweet up front, moving to the earthy flavor along with bitter and spicy hops on the back of the palate. The body is light with an oily texture, livly carbonation, and a long bitter and herbal hops finish. Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - JAN 6, 2011

On tap at the Bruery. Kind of weird at first. Tasty but a little thin. THe grains all kind of meshed together without one overwhelming taste.

Seven grains? More gimmicky than great. Flavor profile was weird - like cheap adjunct stuff. I didn’t think the aroma matched very well either. By far my least favorite beer from the Bruery. drewbeerme (3920) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 24, 2010
Draft, pours hazed gold with white head. Nose is floral, mineral, and sulfur. Flavors are lightly sweet grain and floral. Watery feel with short palate. Good for a cheap table beer but at $7 a pour, nah. nickd717 (4772) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 21, 2010
On tap at GABF 2010 then again at The Bruery Provisions. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head sitting on top. The aroma is only mildly funky with slight spiciness from the rye. Besides that I get grain and lemon. The flavor is good but not too interesting. Pale malt base along with rye, lemon, and other citrus notes. Medium-light bodied and fairly crisp with medium-plus carbonation. Solid American saison overall, but nowhere near some of the best I’ve had. zdk (1917) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2010
sweet and funky, apples, peaches and grainy notes. lemon zest, spicey rye. nice light funk and fruity. Astringent finish. jredmond (8441) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Draft at Churchill’s pub with Linh. Pours a light clear body with white lacing. Aroma is sweet malt and rye. Mouthfeel is nice aggressive carbonation with notes of Belgian candy, spice, sweet rye, and malt.
