Hazy golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of earth, grass, sweeter honey, toast, and spices. Taste of citrus, tart wheat, pepper, and perfect carbonation. Peppery, dry, surprisingly really nice. Travlr (26075) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Draft. Hazy golden yellow color, medium white head. Nice aroma of dusty barnyard corners. Taste has dusty and peppery orange peel. Very nice. woodychevy (874) - - JUN 19, 2015
On tap at brewery. Mental note: when bartender asks what kind of beer you are into, and you reply: "sours and anything wild" and he returns with a saison that probably sets the tone for the whole experience. This was a perfectly decent saison that I’ve had a hundred times before. Slightly hazy golden pour. Subtle saison notes and a pleasantly crisp finish with Belgian undertones. On the sweet side. Sasion. Like the label says. Next brewery.......

On tap at Teresa’s and Wayne Music Fest. Orange colored pour with soapy white head. Citrus, floral, wheat, pepper, cloves, banana. Moderately bitter and sweet. Somewhat sticky body. Light, crisp body. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAY 13, 2015
On tap at the brewery, this was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a soft to hazy burnt golden orange color with a slight transparency about it. Stringy carbonation rises at a nice pace. A one finger white foamy head dissipates within about thirty seconds leaving some light stringy lacing.
The smell started off with a light peppery spice leading into a delicate sweet citrus and then bouncing into a sweet malt.
The taste was mainly sweet through a combination of the malts and the citrus. The spice tends to take a backseat and seems only to be there to balance. A dry lingering sweetness runs into the aftertaste ends up having a light balanced sweet to spicy finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation felt right and also had a sticky sweetness rolling over my tongue.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good saison that I could have again. orangesol (1022) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Served on-tap at the brewery. Pours clear copper orange with a half finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to a light ring, leaving small streaks of lace on the glass.

Smells of the Belgian saison yeast, mildly toasted grain, dash of sweetness, wet hay and other light barnyard aromas. Taste is pretty much identical with the saison yeast strong throughout with the other flavors offering balance and providing a break from the yeasty onslaught. Smooth, yeasty feel with a bit of dryness at the end of each sip.
Overall an ok saison. I like it better than the last one but it is still a bit run of the mill in the grand scheme of things.
Clear golden-orange body, medium to thin white head, spotty lacing. Candied orange, yeast spice, light cracker and biscuity malt, and some florals. Medium bodied with moderate to lively carbonation, mild sweetness, rounded finish.
