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 (1763) - 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 (10000) - 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 (8839) - 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.

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.... gripweed57 (2966) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAR 23, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Slightly hazy straw gold color topped by a small bubbly white head. Fragrant lemony malt aroma has hints of coriander and hay. Dryish citrus malt flavor with notes of wheat, yeast, more coriander and grassy hops. Their is an underlying funky, sulphury earthiness that adds a uniqueness to this ale. Finishes crisp and dry with atouch of lemon peel. jcweaver (770) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Bottle. Golden pour with a small, white head. Spicy and yeasty aroma with notes of hay, citrus, florals and earthy/herbal hops. Similar flavors and finish. Light and easy drinking.

Hazy golden-yellow body, solid white head, soapy lacing. Nose show lemon zest, herbal and floral, light grains and yeast. Flavor is a bit more mellow with less definition. Medium to light bodied appropriate carbonation dry, refreshing finish. Suttree (6537) - 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..
