Beerman6686 (6585) - 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.

kramer (6576) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2013
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, theres not much malt or softness from the yeast. Its very light and thin in texture with fizzy prickly carbonation. I suppose that it is pretty sessionable, but its 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.

Bottled, clear golden yellow with short foam, yeasty aroma, lots of clove in play with rindy melon finish, bitter

Pailhead (6539) - Plymouth, 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. Its light bodied with moderate-heavy carbonation. Overall, it seems like a moderately hopped (floral) Witbier.. Its not bad, but its not what I want in a Saison or Wit.

Patrickctenchi (6464) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Pours hazy bright yellow with a soft white head. Aroma is slightly musty, spicy citrus. Taste is DRY....lemon, spice, pepper, clove. Very mild soft bitter. Not bad.

AshtonMcCobb (6397) - 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 didnt live up to the beautiful complex aroma.

berkshirejohn (6370) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2014
12oz bottle from Wegmans, 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.

egajdzis (6362) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 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.

Suttree (6288) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Cloudy pale yellow, with a nice white head. Smells nicely spicy and herbal, with a decent citrus hop note. Flavor is pretty much the same, with an appealing dryness throughout. Pretty tasty, I can see myself drinking a bunch of this..

obguthr (6173) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 22, 2014
Lemony wheat aroma, light funk. Hazy golden, slight greenish tinge, thin head. Funk is mire in the forefront on the palate. Deceptively dry. Definitely sessionable, but perhaps too much so. I need something with more substance.
