Bottle. Pours a clear and bright straw gold body with a one inch frothy white head that faded to a thin wispy film. The nose comes across as a bit overly spiced with some nice perfume like qualities, light hay, and floral hops. The flavor is a bit too spicy and peppery for my tastes, there’s not much malt or softness from the yeast. It’s very light and thin in texture with fizzy prickly carbonation. I suppose that it is pretty sessionable, but it’s really not what I want from a Saison at all. It comes across as too clean and sterile with too much of the flavor derived from added spices instead of from a good Saison yeast. ajnepple (6622) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2013
12 oz bottle. Golden and hazy with one finger of white foam. Smells and tastes of yeast, lemons and spices. Light body with a dry and crisp feel. Finishes peppery and dry. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2013
This one poured a slightly hazy dark straw color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was of pale grain, light spices, and yeast. Flavor was similar, seemed like a plain lager with spices added rather than a traditional saison. AshtonMcCobb (6605) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl.
Appearance - bright golden with a nice head.
Nose - lemon and a green pungent herb thing. Also a touch of fresh sweat. Cactus/aloe Vera. Maybe bay leaves.
Taste - medicinal lemon balm. More fresh sweat and some tomato stalks.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry finish.
Overall - opposite of synergy. The overall package didn’t live up to the beautiful complex aroma. Patrickctenchi (6590) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 31, 2013

Hazy golde color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted malts, citrus, grass, spices, light pils malt. Taste of light honey, citrus, lemon, toast, spices, and a dry finish. blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2013
Bottled, clear golden yellow with short foam, yeasty aroma, lots of clove in play with rindy melon finish, bitter Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of citrus, banana, coriander, floral notes, and pepper. It smells like a Witbier. It pours a transparent dull gold with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a soapy ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus with a touch of banana. The finish has moderate floral hops, coriander, pepper, and a touch of lemon/lemon peel. It’s light bodied with moderate-heavy carbonation. Overall, it seems like a moderately hopped (floral) Witbier.. It’s not bad, but it’s not what I want in a Saison or Wit. berkshirejohn (6501) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2014
12oz bottle from Wegman’s, Buffalo. A hazy amber pour with a ring of white head; yeasty aroma with perhaps a hint of spice; clean citrus taste; with some quinine-like bitterness, and lingering citrus to finish. A good refresher. mansquito (6438) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Somewhere... 12oz: Pours light golden with a white head. Aroma is farmhouse funk, flowers, and spice. Taste is bitter at the front. Funky. Full saison taste with a light body. Some aftertaste. Almost no sweetness.
