Garrold (5195) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle from Bottledog, Kings Cross. Hazy, yellow colour. Thin, bubbly, white head. Smells like the lemon infused aftershave youd get in a Turkish barbers shop. Lemongrass. Sorbet. Taste is dry, and a little pithy bitter. Fresh palate. A little creaminess. Finish is spicy dry, with bitterness at the end.

hotstuff (5145) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Rated on 02-28-2013 at Victory B.C. This beer is presented with a small white head that is mostly lasting, transparent pale yellow body, fast rising carbonation observed, and a fair amount of lacing adorns my glass. The aroma is citrus, earthy hops, spicy, yeast, and malt. The flavor is citrus hops, yeast, spicy, caramel malt, and light bitter. The mouthfeel is lively carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. A very quaffable saison and worth trying.

Heavy wheat and oats in nose. Mild sulfur. Mild lemon and floral notes. Pepper and citrus peel added in flavor. Very light and crisp.

kidmartinek (4999) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 1, 2013
Slightly hazy yellow. White head has some staying power. Kind of a dirty laundry aroma. Floral fruity and sweet flavor. Rose petal comes to mind.

DialSquare (4988) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2013
12oz bottle from Publix. Yellow pour with huge pillowy bright white head. Aroma is perfume, spices, floral, lemon. Tastes are coriander, pepper, yeast, grass, straw. Fizzy creamy texture. Ok.

chinchill (4941) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Undated 12 oz bottle into a Piraat tulip glass. A: Pours a slightly hazed golden color. The white head has moderate size and duration but leaves ample lacing on the glass. High carbonation by appearances (and feel). S: Plenty of lemon and other citrus with coriander and a background of grass, hops and wheat. Nice complexity for a 4.5% saison, albeit not very appealing. T- Notably tart and fruity with some lemon zest, coriander, banana, and vague spices. M- light bodied with crisp, high carbonation; dry finish. O- a flavorful Saison that is too spiced to serve as a session beer for some. Nice and reffreshig, nonetheless, on a hot summer day.

ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - APR 2, 2013
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Appearance: Pours a hazed, light straw-hued body with a medium-small, white head. Smell: Fragrant citrus shrouds the particularly pale maltiness, with bits of grain-flecked dough with subtle florals and a melange of spiciness. Taste: Pils malts, hints of other such grains sprinkled with a fine dusting of powdered sugar. Floral hints meld into citrus notes from the hops and citrus fruit additions which shimmy into a spiciness from the yeast, peppercorns, and hops, aided by the crisp carbonation. Dry, spicy finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-high carbonation for a lively, zippy mouthfeel. Overall: Id always thought the Victory V / Helios Ale saison was a bit too chewy for me, bodywise. This new Swing Session Saison is bright, light, and refreshing.

3.6
DiarmaidBHK (4797) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine Sterling. Pours golden with an inch of white foam that leaves lacing. Nice peppery notes on the nose. Nice, clean on the tongue with some solid hop bite on the finish. Solid for style.

3.3
kerenmk (4722) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Yoav. Hazy light amber with white ring. Spices, bubblegum and clove aroma, bitter and spicy taste. Medium body, sticky texture, bitter finish.
