Darkmagus82 (2291) - - SEP 4, 2014
Transfer from BA reveiw on 3-27-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance Pours a lightly hazed golden yellow color with a big billowy white head. The head initially fades very fast, but then slows its fade and lingers a bit. Once the head is completely faded (after about 4 min) a decent level of lace is left on the sides of the glass. Smell The aroma is heaviest of wheat, yeast, grass and some haylike funk. Mixed with these are notes of pepper, coriander and nutmeg as well; overall a fairly drier smelling traditional saison. Taste The taste starts out of a medium wheaty flavor as well as some flavors of a light citrus. As the taste advances yeast and the spices detected in the nose, come to the tongue with the orange citrus transitioning more toward a lemon flavor. As the orange transitions to lemon, the bready flavors lighten and haylike and grassy flavors enter the taste. These flavors all take the taste its end, where the funky and hay flavors get even stronger in nature producing a somewhat bitter and a bit unbalanced grassy and astringent haylike funky flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is thin in its creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both are nice for making a crisp feeling brew and suit well the lighter session saison profile that the beer is going for. Overall The initial tastes, mouthfeel, and look were all very nice, but the finish to the taste, with its big funky, grassy, haylike, and bitter flavors werent balanced out by enough wheaty/bready flavors/body.

355 ml bottle from wegmans in Niagara Falls ny. Clear light golden with a lasting white head. Nice light fruity and spicy nose. The flavour is way over spiced making it pretty much undrinkable. Not a session saison at all. Boooooooooooooooo!

tmongoose (2264) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 13, 2013
12oz bottle poured golden yellow with just a touch of haze. White head that leaves a nice lacing on the glass. The aroma was of some undetermined spice notes and citrus. The aromas were light in nature. The flavor is a light to medium evervescent blend of those spice mixes and citrus possibly lemon with some yeasty funk but its not overpowering. Overall a pretty good flavor and this is one you could easily drink a few. There is a lot of carbonation with this beer as well.

12oz bottle from Binnys. Pours hazy golden yellow with white head. Aromas of lemony citrus, light spices, and saison yeast. Flavors are on the lighter side with some light spices, bready malts, little yeast, and some citrus. Nice drinkable beer.

conway (2210) - - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle. Clear gold with a 1 finger white head. Aroma is spelt and floral notes. Taste adds a heaping portion of mint and some citrus in the finish. Soft mouthfeel and light carb. Not bad but a little weird.

Emeister84 (2207) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 7, 2013
Aromas of cardamom, herbs, ginger, and lemon peel. Straw-like complexion with a slight haze, and a mostly fading, white head. Dry, very floral, perfume-like, and somewhat spicy. Light bodied with lively carbonation, and a clean finish with lingering cardamom-like flavors.

ROGUE (2205) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - OCT 6, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a pale straw color with a slight haze, with a huge, fluffy white head that lingers. Aroma is grainy, some barnyard, lemony citrus and some peppery spiciness. Very floral flavor up front, lemon and orange zest, herbal and slightly medicinal pepperiness on the finish. Almost tart tangy feel, lightly effervescent, on the lighter side of medium bodied, finishes dry.

Pours pale gold with a medium fluffy white head. Aroma is earthy, floral, pepper and citrus. Taste is spicy sweet with a touch of bitterness. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Very drinkable and sessionable.

ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Yellow colored pour with a white head. Smells yeasty, malty, and kind of citrusy. Pretty easy drinking - smooth, refreshing, served pretty cold - i couldnt image it being better as it gets warmer. Not a bad beer.

This has been my go-to beer as of late. Sessionable is the key although it does start to get a bit estery after a few.
