Tap at The Alibi Room. Dark yellow with minimal head. Light spritzy lemon scent. Flavour is like a lawnmower Saison or did they call them threshing beers. Refreshing light and tart hint of sourness. emacgee (4705) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Pours soft bright yellow with one finger white head. Grassy and slightly bready nose with a light acidity and yeasty character. Flavor shows very subdued notes of fresh cut grass with a green apple acidity and light peppery character. Very nice, packing a lot of flavor for a low grav beer.

Pale golden colour, dissipating white head. Aroma of hops, wheat, malt and yeast. Light hoppy flavour, hay and malts. Quite creamy body, finish hay, wheat and malts. Quite smooth and balanced brew.

Thanks to Josh for sharing this bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a medium bubbly white head. Aroma of Saison spicyness, lemon, wheat and light banana. Flavor of lemon, Saison spiciness, tart wheat. callmemickey (4561) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Pale, golden-straw colored body. Large, fluffy, creamy head. Good retention as the head slowly crept down the sides. Nice coating of lacing.
S: Wheat, hay, lemon zest, light pepper, and a touch of tart barnyard funk.
T: The presence of wheat is undeniable. Nice lemon blast. Less peppery than the nose. Good, manageable funk. Slightly tart in the finish.
M: Smooth, ideal weight in the body. Carbonation is spot on. The finish is nice and satisfying.
O: While there was nothing "stellar" about the aroma or the flavor profile, this was a very enjoyable brew. Upright describes it as their "table" saison... I think thats the perfect description. At 4.5% and pleasant from start to finish, this is the kind of saison you need a case of at all times so you can crack one every night with dinner.
