On-tap at Idle Hands, New York, NY

A: The beer is hazy golden yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that has excellent retention properties and left lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: There are light to moderately strong aromas of floral hops in the nose.
T: The taste is very similar to the smell and has flavors of floral hops—marigolds seem to stand out in particular. Notes of spices are also noticeable, while the finish has hints of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a short finish.
O: The beer is refreshing and very easy to drink but it lacks complexity in the taste and could use a bit of sourness in the nose.

On draft at Blind Tiger, NYC.

Poured a medium copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured a light caramel and smooth esters.

The taste consisted of round malts, a grassy hop and a pleasant soft ester.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style.

Overall a tasty ale. Not too true to form for a saison however.

Reviewed from notes; originally 9/17/11.

Appearance is a cloudy orange color with two fingers of white head.

Bubblegum with some hints of peppercorn, and some clove.

Follows the nose with bubblegum, clove, black pepper and some cracked grain notes.

Light bodied wuth moderate carbonation and a prickly feel.

Pretty nice and certainly refreshing but the bubblegum is a little overwhelming.

Served on-tap at Rattle N Hum in New York, NY

A: Pours a hazy medium golden yellow in color with minimal amounts of visible carbonation and some lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall off-white head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of floral hops and just a touch of yeast spiciness.

T: Upfront there is a light flavor of pale malts with some light to moderate flavors of yeast spiciness (black pepper and clove). There is a light to moderate amount of floral flavors from the hops. Very light amounts of bitterness which fades very quickly.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: I prefer my saisons with just a touch of barnyard funk or sourness in them and this one was just lacking that element though it was quite easy to drink. Not as much complexity in the smell and taste as I would like. Think I would not get it again.

On tap at Pizza Port San Clemente

A: Clear light brown color with a 1/2 finger bone white head.

S: Definitely has a bit of spiciness along with a rich nutty smell. Some faint malts as well.

T: Not much about this beer screams "saison" to me, but it's pretty solid. Toasted nuts, caramel, a bit of ginger and indistinguishable spices and some roasted malt. Very drinkable.

On-tap at the brewery. 5.8%

Served a fairly clean golden color with a bright white head that faded into a good collar leaving wispy, spotty lace. I get notes of peppery Belgian spices, cloves, citrus and bubblegum yeast on the nose. Flavors include all of those plus some cracked grains and earthy hops in the finish. Yeast is earthy, and I might detect a hint of mint? Mouth is slightly bitter but definitely refreshing, drying, and clean all around. I loved the flavors in this one and thought it was a solid saison.

In the 16 oz tulip. Attractive golden amber color with very nice lacing. Tart and spicy. Starts with a good dose of sweetness. Hops come on with a modest biterness. Ends on a dry and scratchy note. The malt is quite pleasant with the light body and makes for good drinkability, if less intrigue.

Not a bad Saison. A more watery and quaffable version than most. Great with hot shrimp and sausage gumbo at Local Habit in San Diego. Like throwing gasoline on the fire.
