NikkTwist (2942) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Draft at Moriartys. Slightly hazy honey gold pour with a large frothy white head. Feels like a very full wheat beer off the top but has a notable spicy citrus hop bite in the finish. Puffed wheat and black pepper. Bit unusual.

Bacterial (2931) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Slightly hazy yellow pour wihth a nice white head. Slightly floral nose with hints of grassiness. Floral notes also in the taste, hops and then lots of bitterness on the finish. I dont taste any of the fruit character that others seem to be getting.

Shag (2892) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is a soapy detergent lemon thing going on. It smells like Orval! This is very dry yet yeasty with a sharp lemon flavor that is slightly sour but very bitter and dry. Oh I see what you are doing Victory you are trying to make an Orval clone. Congrats you did just that! Strip away the name this is way higher rated than it currently is. Overall Im giving a bit above Orval for the balls to do this! Cheers!

MadRobin (2882) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - MAY 8, 2013
On tap at Always Ron's in Hagerstown, MD. Clear, yellow-amber with an off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of yeast, fruit, pine, floral perfume and mild earthy hops. Taste of floral hops, earthy herbs and spice, year and pine. Much hoppier, or at least less malty, than your typical saison. Medium body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gription79 (2879) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is very interesting, orange, citrus, peppery. The flavor is husky, peppery, spicy. This is thin and astringent, lacks complexity.

Bottle pours golden yellow with a white head. Nose of citrus and earth. Medium body begins with earth and sweetness, finishes with oranges. Mouthfeel is crisp.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Pours a slightly cloudy, pale golden yellow color with a two finger frothy white head that has pretty good retention, only slowly fading into a thick, lasting ring. Large streaks of soapy lacing left behind. The aroma reminds me more of a wheat beer. There is some subtle grassy barnyard character but the dominant notes are peppery spice, bready yeast, banana and citrus. Only slightly earthy with pepper, clove and coriander followed by a strong wheat/bread like presence, lemon juice and citrus zest. Fuller bodied than expected and a bit more like a saison than the nose suggests but it still feels and tastes more like a witbier/American wheat beer. Subtle earthy funky with lots of zesty spice up front followed by bread/yeast, banana and citrus juice. Coriander and clove flavor with lemon zest, wheat, light fruit and lemon peel. Crisp, light, refreshing and easy to drink but I dont think anyone would say that this is a saison in a blind tasting. Not bad but reminds me of a mediocre American wheat beer.

Hazy straw color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of yeast, floral, & pepper/spice; Flavor of malt, yeast, hops, pepper, and citrus (notably lemon); Finish is dry & fairly bitter; Nicely balanced; Not too shabby for a session ale.
