Bottle - Stone fruit and some funk. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Funky stone fruit and some odd yeasty notes. The yeasty notes throughout are a bit odd. Maverick34 (3303) - New York, USA - AUG 8, 2016
Bottled. Bubblybpiur Tons of bubble gum and bananas hit you up front then a sweet finish. Pretty well Ctplt777 (533) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 27, 2016
Super solid Saison from Alewerks. Aroma is lemon, clove, banana and bready. Very zesty aroma. Smells delicious. Taste is actually pretty juicy. Lots of lemon and breadiness. It’s spicy, zesty and dry. Overall, it’s a super drinkable, delicious saison. Alewerks makes awesome beers and this is another one in the line of them. It’s really simple and I think that’s what makes it even better. Cheers!

Draft at the source. As springtime saison(confirmed as same). Yeast, spice, herbal, Belgian aromas. Flavors are light, yeast, spice and fruit toned. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Poured into a pint glass. Bottle.
3.25 A: Moderately hazed yellow brown color. Three fingers of foamy white head. Retention is about average, but leaves no lacing.
4.0 S: Dry with a huge herbal component. Chamomile, hay, dirty earthiness. Not much fruit, but hints of lemongrass. Very nice nose here.
3.75 T: Pleasantly sweet, which is a bit surprising given the nose. Hay, lemongrass, earth. There’s a touch of cracker component to the malts as well.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Just a touch of creaminess.
3.75 D: Very nice beer. Super drinkable and balanced.

Pours a hazy, dark golden orange with apricot colored edges and a frothy, two finger white head that very slowly settles into a lasting cap/ring. Very good retention for the style with large chunks of soapy lacing left behind.
Floral, perfume like aroma with zesty spice, bready yeast, bubblegum and sweet citrus fruit. Not much of a farmhouse/saison yeast character with only subtle musty funk. Smells more like an American wheat beer. Slightly mineraly with some pepper and clove followed by the wheat, yeast and orange peel.
Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a zesty spice presence up front that lingers over subtle funk, bread, bubblegum and citrus zest into a slightly dry finish. Again, the saison/farmhouse character is faint with only subtle grassy, musty funk. Feels more like a wheat beer with peppery clove and coriander followed by a strong bready yeast character and prominent bubblegum flavor. Some lemon pith/citrus sweetness towards the finish but that’s pretty tame as well. Not all that interesting or flavorful but at least it’s easy to drink. Not a very good interpretation of the style in my opinion. jsnicholas (679) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - AUG 6, 2015
Bottle 22oz at restaurant : description is very accurate. Golden small head lots of carbonation. Belgian funky aroma. Fruity wine like taste. hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2015
Bottle... Pours clear and amber with orange highlights and a small, fizzy, white head that’s gone in a flash. The aroma features herbs and spicy phenols. Full-bodied with busy carbonation. The flavor is all about spicy phenols and fruity esters flanked by too much hop bitterness. Why don’t we just take this farmhouse yeast strain that everyone (except Fantôme) seems to be using for their saisons and alter the grain bills so they are heavier on wheat and lighter on barley and whala – a bunch of Belgian and French farmhouse hefeweizens! Meh.
