DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2013
12oz bottle. Mostly clear yellow color. Thin bubbly white head, some bubbles on the side of the glass. Little bits of lace. Surprisingly herbal aroma makes me think Saison du Buff. Sage, oregano, thyme... Not that I dont like that, I just expected a much more traditional saison (to differentiate from the Dogfish / Stone collab). Light spice, some citrusy zest, light belgian-style farmhouse yeast. Nice savory taste. Medium body, smooth lighter crisp carbonation, more on the dry side. Enjoyable, flavorful, drinkable light saison. I cant help but think of it as a Saison Du BUFF Light, which for me is a good thing. Also always good to have another 12oz saison option.

KyotoLefty (9638) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 13, 2014
Bottle from BOTW. Clear pale golden, fine head. Lemony nose, spicy yeast, light grains and hay. Clean. Clean and citrusy, spicy yeast, crisp, light bready malts. Decent beer, not a whole lot of saison character, but high drinkability. Relatively high carbonation.

marcus (9538) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours clear golden with a frothy white head and a fruity aroma. There is a light-bodied bitter malt flavor with a nice yeast presence and a dry spicy finish.

MartinT (9535) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This estery Saison shares plenty of fruitiness and herbs in a lean and quenching mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam settles atop the misty yellow.
-This is just as flavorful as many 6%+ Saisons.
-Carbonation is not as fluffy and airy as I would have liked it to be (for this style).
-Herbal hop bitterness balances out the finish.
-Spices are well blended into the overall profile of the beer.

Bottle.

arminjewell (9423) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy yellow pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of lemon, biscuit, some dull grass, earthy notes, slight vanilla, cracker malts as well. Taste is sweet vanilla, biscuit, into some slight lemon, fruity grape notes, kind of dull and mashed together into some grass and earth, finishing dry. Just ok.

3fourths (9265) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 22, 2013
bottle. hazy gold body, short white head. basically a witbier, just like ernie said. musty perfume, orange jam (jelly? i already told you once), potpourri orange peel and sulfuric vitamin yeast in the nose. lean, dry, bitter texture and flavor. brash dryness with bracing hop acidity, totally unbalanced. okay, it doesnt taste bad, its not the smell and flavor. its how out of balance it is. theres nothing here to make me want another drink. its horribly bitter and rough for its size. ugh.

blipp (8511) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Light spicy yeast, faint malty sweetness, and flowery hops. Good stuff.

b3shine (8366) - Indiana, USA - APR 7, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent gold with fluffy white head. Smells spicy, yeasty, and doughy. Tastes like it smells with a nice, dry finish. Asolid example of the style.
