SpringsLicker’s Fish Fry. Sample from a bottle thanks to Suttree. Just barely hazy orange with a slow white foam. Aroma of oranges, nice sweet malts, awesome aroma. Taste is grassy, zesty, citrus, but a bit syrupy and the alcohol shows through. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 10, 2009
Aroma of apple, butter, and yeast from a slightly hazed gold pour with creamy white head and lace. A barnyard burlap/straw like earthy flavor with a sweet almost cloying finish. A little thin and watery but ok. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAY 9, 2009

4/25/2009: Wedge Super Saison (8% ABV) pours a cloudy, dark gold color. It is sweet and malty with an interesting spice and a good body. This Saison is thick and pretty good overall. I tend to prefer the thicker, malty saisons like this one with a bit of sweetness and lighter on the spice, fruit, and funk.
Sample at Dark Lord Day 2009. Rating #16 for this beer.
DLD 2009, thanks to [RBian ?]: It poured a hazy orange body with a slender white head. The aroma was tart tangerine, pink grapefruit, and a touch of honey. The flavor was much the same with the addition of a light herbal bitterness. I’m surprized at the higher ABV, but I s’pose the "Super" had to have some meaning.

Sampled at Springslicker’s Fish Fry ’09. Semi hazy orange pour with thin white head. Smells lightly funky, sweet grapefruit. Tangy orange flavor with a semi-bitter finish. Cool swingtop bottle. Thanks Phil! jsh12bama (761) - Alabama, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Bottle. Pours orange with off white head. Aroma of honey and citrus. Taste is sweet with honey and pears. Decent. daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2009
Another DLD sample. Amber pour. Light head. Honey notes and a lack of funky lead me away from the saison style. But the flavor is nice. It is a bit funky, but with more syrup and honey notes. There is a tartness in the beer. But more sweetness than anything. Not bad.
