Draft at the tasting room. Cloudy yellow color. Aroma of grass, hay, straw. Taste is lemon flavored bubblegum, if you can believe that one. Nice soft funk. Good stuff! yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2011
I loved this. Hazy golden yellow color with a frothy head. Aroma has some herbs, yeast, grain, some spice and a hint of citrus. Flavor is great. Smooth, sweet, nice and spicy, good full body, a little dry too, a hint of sweetness, citrus and light bitterness to complement the spice and sweetness. Awesome.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2011 Courtesy of Pailhead. Hazy golden, huge rocky white head, sticks around a while. Floral, dusty, cereal, light citrus, lemon, lacto. Flavor falls a little bit short of aroma, dusty malt up front, light lacto, floral, citrus, dries out nice through the finish. Billowy mouthfeel, silky. Great session brew.

Bottle shared by 321Jeff. Thanks!
The beer is a hazy, straw yellow hue with a couple inches of thick, white head that leaves a thick sheet of lacing on the glass. The aroma brings lemons, spice, grass, fresh celery. The flavor is refreshing with crisp, zesty carbonation. Light floral and citrus notes are quite enjoyable. The feel is light on the palate. Highly drinkable.

Draft at brewery, Portland. Pours a cloudy medium golden straw. Aroma has a slight funky yeastiness, maybe some fruit as well. Lovely lightness to aroma. Body incredibly light on the tongue, sublime and direct, finish abrupt and crisp. Brilliant in any situation, but on tap at the brewery is the pinnacle of freshness.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours extremely hazy golden amber color with a 3 finger foamy and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a thick cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, straw, grass, light funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, wheat, bread, pepper, clove, grass, straw, light funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, wheat, bread, pepper, clove, grass, straw, light funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast ester notes; with good flavor robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and prickly mouthfeel that is great. Zero alcohol warming present after the finish as expected for 4.5%. Overall this is an excellent session saison style. All around great balance, complexity, and robustness of flavors for 4.5%; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle. Grate pils malt with a touch of pepper in the whiffer. Hazy light yellow. Large white head. Slightly tart, crisp, refreshing. Pleasant yeast phenols with pepper and a drying finish. Wow. This is light Saison DuPont table beer. Like avril. But fresh n good. mfp13jr (152) - Glenville, New York, USA - APR 28, 2014
On tap at the blind tiger. Hazy orangish yellow. Plenty of unsalted wheat and very rustic. A bit of lemony freshness on the tongue. Finish is long with a dry pepper finish. dmac (6257) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Love this one. Hazy golden-yellow with a smaller foamy white head. Aroma is sour, slight pepper, dry grains, lemon. Flavor is great, lemons, sourness, slight pepper, sweet fruit notesin the middle.
