Translucent golden straw with a billowing white head. Medium body with high carbonation.Bigkid895 (13) - - FEB 20, 2014
Aroma: classic saison yeast notes like a stone basement full of lychees, apples, pears, mango, and straw. Malt and hop character are pushed into obscurity.
Taste: black pepper and clove yeast phenols dominate up front, followed by a complex mix of pale barley, tart wheat, and a hint of grainy rye.
I’m not generally a fan of saisons, but this is wonderfully fruity, spicy, and grainy -complex and balanced.
Pours a hazy golden with nice frothy head great flavor a bit different from most beers I have had but in a good way Sidnne (11) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2017
Pretty decent saison. A little light bodied, but good flavor. Just the right amount of peppery. Low ABV makes this a refreshing, easy-drinking farmhouse, as a saison should be. acread (23) - St. Albans, Vermont, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Unlike other posters, I happen to think that this example of a saison is very well done. Despite its low alcohol and high sessionability, the white pepper and tropical fruit notes are highly complex and balanced. The use of oats creates a lovely mouthfeel, but the shining star is the yeast. Beautiful beer. malrubius (2896) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 27, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2014 Bottled 6/6/13 from Trader Joes in Fairfield. Very pale gold with slightly fizzy loud head. Nice lemon pastry yeasty citrus spicy aroma. Medium fruity pineapple mango sweetness with assertive herbal peppery hop fairly dry finish. Lacks the true Belgian saison soft texture. Medium light but fizzy. Good.
12/5/14 Meh. I think my tastes have evolved. Giving this more points. Lively texture is okay.

Soft citrus lemon bread aroma. Enormous head to start. Hazy straw colored body. Mild bitterness. Soft lemon yeast taste. Soft bubble feel.Refreshing and tart. Well done. puboflyons (3432) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle 02/03/2016. Slightly cloudy yellow pour under a modest white head. The aroma has a nice note of Belgian yeast, mild spice, a little tropical fruit, and toasted grainy malts. Light to medium body. The taste has a great toasted barley and grainy character to start with a tropical fruitiness that kicks in and a spicy bitterness to finish. It runs the gamut.

Flaska från Mikkeller&Friends. Gyllengul klar vätska, vitt lågt skum. Stiltypisk belgisk saison med mycket karaktär. Torr, krispig och lite oljig munkänsla. Kryddig, fruktig, jästig, estrig i trevlig kombination. Jordig, gräsig och örtig, vitpepper, nejlika, lätt pepprig och gräsig beska, lätt tropisk fruktighet. Fin smakbild.
