Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy light gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is fresh, but light earthy citrus. Med minus body. Flavor is lightly earthy and the flavor is something green. Had me thinking of very light bay leaf. Finishes clean, dry and a tad earthy. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle from Sam’s, Durham. All hail the session brew trend. Nicely lemonade-y pour, moderately cloudy, could almost pass for a Berliner crossed with a singel (the fluffy head of the latter gives this one away as farmhouse). Nice nose, citrus wakeup call and spice/yeast to complement. Full bodied, nicely spicy in places on the palate, I was pleased that the herbs didn’t get too assertive, allowing the more bitter and lightly hopped qualities to shine through. Well done. I should get some more. baraciisch (3239) - California, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Yellow orange in color... Light citrusy lemon aroma... Crisp flavor, spicy on the finish, gentle citrus notes throughout... Solid

Bottle [12oz]. Pours a murky yellow-gold with a large lasting fluffy white head. Some lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, citrus, spices, herbs, light grassy hops and some bready, floral and earthy notes. Yeasty, citrusy and spicy flavour along with light hops and a dry herbal finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good, I personally like how spicy it is.

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. rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Draft at Proof. Clear golden pour with a frothy white head. Aroma of pale grains, yeast funk, citrus and spiciness. Crisp tart lemons, wheat graininess, yeast funk and ending a spicy hop driven note. Pretty solid. Bit of of a tinny astringent character. Pretty solid. 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 don’t 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 can’t 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. jredmond (8288) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Bottle with Ken during some Settlers of Catan. Pours a bright hazy yellow golden body and nice white lacing. Aroma is lemons, lots of yeast, spice, lavender, coriander and grass. Mouthfeel is super bitter, prickly carbonation with notes of zesty yeast, lemons, dry grassy hops and spice. GMCC2181 (1610) - Newark, Delaware, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Draft at two stones.... Pours a cloudy bright yellow, slight orange tint. Decent little head. Nice nose of spices, earthy, flowers, camomile and some hops. Taste is the sames, spices, flowers, grains, floral notes, camomile, little citrus lime taste..... slight hoppiness in the after taste to balance it. Body is light, fluffy and really easy to drink. Decent stuff....
