Poured into a pint glass the beer was a hazy yellow color that looked like lemonade. A thick, fluffy white head that receded quickly. A lot of sticky lace.

Fruity, citrus aroma. Peppery spice. Some earthy hops.

Very lemony taste. Peppery. A little bit of earthy hops.

A nice beer. More fruity than peppery/hoppy. It tasted good on a warm fall day.

Friend brought this to try, otherwise I wouldn't have tried this myself.

Decent creamy 1/2 finger head fades semi slowly nice lacing, hazy lemonade color.

Nose lemony, grassy, lemongrass, wheat, little hay funk, light grassy hops little herbal, light bready blond malt, lemon pledge.

Taste grassy, lemon, lemongrass, light hay funk again, wheat, toasty grainy, light dough. Some bitter light grassy herbal hops, little chewy hop too, quite lemony. Finish is tart lemon, light grassy, wheat, little sticky but dry.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, decent carb.

Overall pretty boring, way too much lemon, and grassy, not enough saison funk or malts, fairly meh.

I saw this at the Sahara Mart in Bloomington, IN and remembered it was on my Wants list. To be honest, I can’t remember why I wanted it, but I’m sure past me had a good reason to; I trust that guy.

Brewed a year and a half ago: label reads “Bottled July 2011” over the barcode.

A: This one has fizzy, clean gold body and a beautiful head standing three fingers high: a dense offering of white foam. Great frothy retention with loads of chunky lacing as it settles.

S: Sweet, lemony, funky – the herbal, hopped-up aroma that spells this style out to a T. Spicy pepper and drying esters compound with grainy pale malt and crisp ginger ale in a rush of Belgian complexity, all within an environment of mild farmhouse earthiness.

T: Intense hopping makes this a palate with a punch: lemon juice with floral notes and a touch of pine refresh wholeheartedly throughout. Crisp cracker and bread crust flavors of the malts keep it light, too, never getting very sweet or thick; this one seems to be all about refreshment, as the label mentions. It’s not spice or herb intensive, but those flavors are still there, distracting slightly from the bitter nature of the hops. Finishes with a grassy grapefruit tone, green and astringent.

M: Thin, refreshing, and dry all-around, a light texture that would be perfect on a hot day. Lovingly fizzy, too: great for the style.

O: This is one hell of a refreshing saison; I’d take six of these over a number of American pales as a summertime beer. Still don’t know why I had this on the Wants list, but I’m glad I was directed to this one.

Pale yellow with some head. No lace.

Light grain and some yeast in the nose. Wanted some must and dust and got none.

Light grain, some sweetness and a little spicy bite, but not much else. A little sour in the finish.

Fizzy and medium-light in body.

I wouldn't drink this again. Not a great version of the style.
