On tap at Irish House in New Orleans, Louisiana- NOLA Hurricane Saison has a thick, fluffy, slightly off-white head and a hazy, golden appearance, with lost of thick lacing left on the glass. The aroma is very much of green grass or a freshly-mowed lawn (St. Augustine grass). There is some sweetness and malt as well. Taste is of green grass, sweet & resiny hops, sugar, candy and loveliness. Mouthfeel is medium, and NOLA Hurricane Saison finishes semi-dry, clean, and smooth. Overall, this is a wonderful draft beer. A must-try!

1. I had this on draft from a fresh keg at a local casino.

2. There was a great amber color with a thick head that lasted the whole beer.

3. There was a great malty smell with low hop bitterness.

4. Nice thick mouth-coating feel.

5. Overall I would love to buy a 6 pack of this to take home and enjoy. I am new to the Saison market so not having much experience with others of the same kind I can't say how it compares to Brand X but I will be looking for more Saisons in the future.

Appearance: Beer has a clear dark golden almost orange color with one finger of fluffy white head with good staying power. Patchy lacing throughout.

Smell: Very floral aroma with this beer. Hops give it a sweet presume like smell.

Taste: Sweet floral and fruity flavors. Sweet lingering flavor left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation gives the beer a bubbly but medium mouthfeel.

Overall: First time trying a Saison beer. Very distinctive flavor with some sweetness from the hops. Nice sweet lingering finish. I will try this type and brewery again.

Pretty fair beer really. Served with a small, off white head and some lace. Color was clear amber. Aroma was malty, yeast, fruit, a traditional saison. Flavor was similar to aroma. Body was good and so was carbonation. Finish was a bit thin, more bitter than sweet and of medium length.

Golden orange pour, big fluffy white head.

Aroma has some citrus (orange) notes, a nice spiciness, yeasty, bready sweetness.

Taste is more spicy and peppery, earthy sweet, bready, light citrus hops.

Crisp, light body good carbonation, slick.

Pretty sure NOLA brews Louisiana's first and only Saison (though Abita may have tried one as a select, but I'm not confident in that guess), and it's a pretty tasty one. We don't see a lot of Saisons around, so I'll be enjoying this quite often this summer. Can't wait for the cans!

On tap at Walk On's in Lafayette, LA.

A: Pours a slightly hazy straw/yellow color. A two finger white head forms with good retention. Patchy lace is left behind.
S: Fairly neutral, but what is there is from the yeast. Earthy, phenolic, peppery spice. Enjoyable.
T: Again, spicy and earthy yeast that I really like. Some citrus hops. A light sugary sweetness as well.
M/D: A medium body with crisp carbonation. Very clean, but I wish it was a bit dryer. Very easy to drink. I can drink this all day.

A very nice Saison. Fairly simple, but I like it. It needs to be dryer. Other than that, something I would recommend.
