I had this on tap at the Bruery. This saison had some spiciness, muted fruits and finished dryly. LtDan (1808) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAY 26, 2010
Appearance: Pours an amber gold with a white ring of foam. The body was bright and clear.
Aroma: Tripel yeast.
Taste: Spicy yeast and pale dry malt.
Mouthfeel: Thin and fizzy.
Overall: This wasn’t complex enough for something called Seven Grain, and wasn’t that exciting. WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Tap at Second Anniversary party. This brew has an amazing nose, but the taste is too floral for me to realistically drink. Nose has lots of wonderful floral notes and great citrus. The taste is sweet and way too floral. nimbleprop (8922) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Sampled at Max’s in Baltimore. Pours a totally clear, bright yellow with a cloudy white head. Spicy, sugary aroma, herbs, flowers, a little perfumy soap. Flavor is sweet, a little chalky, light citrus, light bread. Finish is chalky. beersearcher (2383) - Glendale, California, USA - MAY 22, 2010
Pours a hazy, muddled yellow. First off you get the Belgian yeast coming at you then a gentle spicing. Not far off from style but really mild. I prefer Saison de Lente.

On tap at the Bruery’s 2nd Anniversary party. Yellow color. Dry saison character. Medium to low bitterness. Frothy head. Dry and seems low in flavor, because of lack of sweetness. Pretty easy to drink. riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2010
Interesting muddled grain bill on nose, tropical fruit, sweey fruity yeast notes as well. Golden orange pour, thinnish head, bright nice lace. Peppery, dry grainy, tons of different grain flavors, bread, wheat, rye perhaps, soft tropical fruit, peppery bitterness in the finish. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Leafy herbal bitterness is there as well as some lemon. Not bad, but a little muddled to me. TomDecapolis (4636) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAY 14, 2010
Tap at the Bruery. Pours a hazy golden with a medium bubbly/creamy white head. Aroma of great saison fruity and lightly spicy yeast profile. Also getting some bready and citrus notes. Some
of the rye and oats coming through. Flavor of the same great saison character. The various grains coming through a bit more in the flavor. Nice and dry. Well done crisp,
refreshing and flavorful saison. AmEricanbrew (7080) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Hazy golden color with white foam. Big barnyard dung, dry herbal, hay, multi grain aromas. Light bodied. Crisp, dry hay and pale malt, cereal grain flavors with a nicely bitter hop twang to finish. @ Bruery. kmweaver (3208) - Petaluma, California, USA - MAY 9, 2010
(fest rating) Draft @ Boonville Beer Fest. Pours a hazy, effervescent, whitish-straw color; fine-bubbled white head with solid retention and lacing; attractive beer. Lots of mineral and herbal bitterness (touches of grapefruit, even); some creamy toasty grains play out well behind it; zesty, hop-driven nose with some touches of honey and vanilla. Medium body (or less); high carbonation, moderate acidity; slightly creamy and non-astringent; lively, zesty herbal and grassy hop character; following the nose, solid amounts of toasty grains and vanilla and honey; certainly saison-like, beautifully dry and lightly peppery (and lighter bodied), with a load of herbal and mineral bitterness; great, great stuff. Refreshing and well-made. When The Bruery nails their attenuation... Lasting, toasty finish, showing a complexity of grains and lasting touches of citrus bitterness.
