Tap at Paradiso Dupont. Pours a near cloudy yellow (barely hazy) with a small, fizzy white head. Okay retention and no lace. Aroma is all clovey Belgian yeast, lemon, fresh grass. Taste is very Belgian in character: dry, candi sugar, big clovey yeast character. Moves to grassy bitter full of citrus peel and soapy hops. Dry, fizzy, watery palate. Not necessarily rich or hoppy. Comes across as a pilsener with Belgian yeast. danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Served on tap at the The Bruery Provision. The appearance is a slightly cloudy golden hue. The flavors and aromas have a bit of a barnyard note that everything rides on. I’m not sure if I am tasting that wrong. A bit of other grains are picked up, some rye, and barley in particular, I like the concept and there are some cool flavor mixes in there but I’m not so sure I’m digging it.

Tap at Paradiso Dupont. Cloudy yellow, small white head, scant lacing. Aroma of hay. Taste has lots of lemon, oily with a very bitter finish, too bitter for a saison. Very light body. This one misses the mark. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 9, 2010
Draft. Pours a golden body with a white head and light retention. Musky cologne and citrus notes, a mild grains as well as toast and fruit. Spices with a hint of flax and cinnamon. A mild drying citrus finish, almost a lemon rind. Nice. Lubiere (13898) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2010
A hazed blonde saison with a thin white head. In aroma, a nice lemony saison with light cloven notes. In mouth, a nice smooth saison, with fruity notes, light orange pulp, oily mouthfeel, quite classy and smooth. On tap at ChurchKey DC, Sept. 18 2010.

On draft at provisions. Pale gold pour with slight white head. Nose of spice and hops. Notes of currant, spice, and sour yeast. Dry hoppy finish. dcschiller (2208) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 19, 2010
(On draught at Sun Devil). Pours slight hazy golden with thin white head. Aroma is very much like a saison-maybe a little spicy from the rye. Semi-sweer with bitterness increasing with time. Light bodied with thin texture. Finish is initially quite bitter, but not as noticeable with more sips. Decent beer.

Draft @ Brouwers, Seattle, WA. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Has a fruity spicy yeasty aroma with some weak grassy hints. Sweetish malty spicy yeasty flavor. Has a sweetish malty spicy bitter yeasty finish. Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 2, 2010
On tap at Churchill’s. Pale yellow and clear in the glass. Nose is lemon yeastiness. Taste is same with hints of Bretty funk. OK. MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 30, 2010
on tap at max’s. tepid gold, pond scum white head, thin ring. Transparent lemon-gold, soapy, lght brett and grainy nose and flavor, more Brett in the latter. Lightly stinging carbonation, vey singular citrus notes with the pedio/Brett, almost diaper quality. The citrus draws too much attention to grain, stinging body, carbonation too high. Descent, but I’d prefer less harsh front, wheaty back appreciated.
