NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Bottle from Vas Foremost. Clearly, this one is a filtered version. Pours a crystal clear gold with a somewhat fizzy white head that sticks around. Nose is lavender & sage, faint yeast dough and grain. Pretty well in balance. On taste, refreshing bitterness and very clean flavors. more sage and lavender come through, as well as a touch of celery. Pretty nice, thought the DFH takes the cake.

Wow. This is really excellent. The yeasty fruitiness (or are those hops?) stays with you for a very long time, well after you swallow it. The body is quite nice too--every American Saison I’ve had errs by being too thin or fat. This is effervescent and cheery. A first-rate beer.

3.3
Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Bottle from Binny’s Beverage Depot in Orland Park, Illinois: This poured a clear yellow body with a short bubbly head that quickly vanished. No lace at all. The aroma was herbal and powdery with a drop of honey in it. It had a strong, bitter herbal flavor that pretty well buried the malt. Dry, dusty finish. Okay.

TheBeerGod (6224) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Bottle. Hazy amber pour with a short white head. Strong spicy and herbal aroma with yeast and flowery notes. Taste is also strong spices, funky yeast, grains, peppery notes, herbs and dried fruit. Body is light-medium and bubbly. End is more strong spices, herbs, light hops, flowers, dried fruit and powdery yeast.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Bottle from Once Upon a Vine - North courtesy of MaltDawg at the 12th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering on 09/18/2010. Clear golden body with a medium creamy white head. Sweet malt, caramel, and light fruit aroma. Sweet malt flavor, some caramel. Noticably lacking rosemary compared to the others. Medium body with moderately high carbonation.

3.7
MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2010
(Sample Date: 9/18/2010 Source:Maniac) Floral herbal nose of rosemary and basil. Light graininess. Clear with small white head. Floral herbal with peppery yeast notes, a light fruitiness, and light graininess. Medium body and light mouth feel. Finish is dry and spicy. Nice balance.

3.5
Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Sampled side by side by side at the Richmond Gathering XII. The most different of the three. The most mild on the herbs, but they are still present. This is the most balanced of the three and maybe my preference if I had to drink one again.

drewbeerme (3920) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Bottle sampled next to the other 2 BUFFs. my favorite of the 3 (but this isn’t saying much), pours clearer than the others, gold small white head. nose is honey, pils malt base is noticed, spices with sage and rosemary coming out the most. flavor is honey and pils malt, those spices. finishes yeasty but clean.

TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 17, 2010
almost clear golden, small white lace that all but fades. Nose is bit drier than the other two. But it still tastes like rosemary medicine and its not generally refreshing at all like a decent saison should be.
