This saison pours hazy to clear straw in color with notes of honey and tropical fruit. Flavor has tropical fruit with a lemony bitterness and hints of clove in the finish. Sorachi Ace and Citra hops add lots of flavor to this small, sessionable beer.

This is disappointing because it's the first bad beer I've ever had from Cigar City, the first one that's less than really good. From the very first sip it tasted like a cheap, generic macro that somebody had spilled a little bit of saison in. I checked the ABV thinking maybe it was an attempt at a session beer but not really: 5%. The other people at my table felt the same. We didn't want to finish them and waste stomach space.

Nice saison.... golden glowing body. Lots of fast rising bubbles but low head retention. Nose had a little saison yeast aroma. Taste was more noticeable. Very solid saison flavor, bigger body as expected than typical style. Driking this on tap at speckled hen and pairing it up with some seared scallops.

From 06/22/12 notes. Had on tap at the Blind Tiger in NYC. Served in a pint glass.

a - Pours a hazy golden yellow color with moderate carbonation evident and one inch of bright white head.

s - Smells of bananas, spices, cloves, pepper, yeast, bready malts, light citrus hops. Very nice nose.

t - Tastes of pepper, spices, bananas, yeast, citrus hops, yeast. More pepper than the nose and less hops; a step down for me.

m - Medium body and moderate to high carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a pretty nice beer, though the taste was a little lacking and had too much pepper for me. I was hoping for more hops overall after seeing the description, but it still has a nice nose and is very easy to drink. Good for a summer day, would have it again.

World of Beers - UCF, Orlando. Musty yeasty aromas with sweet malts. Pours a hazy yellow orange with a thick white head. Funky malty with citrus notes and sweet bready malts with spicy yeast flavors, coriander and nutmeg with hints of cinnamon. Clean refreshing finish. Great session brew!!!!

On-tap at Rattle ‘n Hum, New York, NY

A: The beer is hazy pale yellow in color. It poured with a finger high white head that gradually died down and left some lacing on the surface and a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of lemon and nondescript malts in the nose.
T: The taste has some initial hints of sweetness and is followed by flavors of bready and grainy malts along with lemon from the Sorachi Ace hops.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. There is some dryness in the finish.
O: This is an average saison but has some interesting properties imparted by the Sorachi Ace hops.

Had on-tap at CCB tasting room. Poured into a pint glass.

A: Light copper color, fairly clear. Medium head.

A: Belgian yeast aroma, with some apples in the background. Not a bunch of the typical banana aroma though. Overall seems a bit muted.

T: Mildly fruity flavor (bit more banana here) over yeasty belgian flavor. Some more lemon flavor as it warms somewhat.

M: Light bodied and low carbonation.

O: I went into this with high hopes. Honestly, though, it really struck me as a purely average saison. Nothing bad or off-putting, but nothing exceptional. In this area where St. Somewhere brews are available, they need to have brought more to the Table *rim shot*
