11.2oz undated bottle poured into a becher glass at fridge temp 6.5% ABV. The beer pours hazy, soft peach & yellow with abundant bone colored head. The head recedes slowly to a rocky cap and leaves plenty of lacing. The aroma is rustic yeast, citrus and soft malt. The taste is funky & sharp featuring semisweet malt, plenty of yeast character (clove approaching rubber) and some floral & mild citrus notes. Mild bitterness. The mouthfeel is thin bodied with tons of carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, good.

Can from The Beermongers.

Mildly hazy straw yellow with a large white head with good retention and lacing. The nose is pure saison, unapologetically classic and rustic with raw grain, spicy yeast, mild esters and loads of lemony, bright Saaz hops. The palate opens grainy and spicy with a lovely yeast expression, focused , spicy, yeasty with white pepper, grains of paradise, a little fenugreek. Rustic grain with straw and a little wheat complement the lemony and spicy saaz hop character. Fruity with light pear and melon esters on the finish. Soft, creamy, snappy, doughy, this is fantastic on the palate. Lovely stuff.

750 ml paper-wrapped bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 6.5%. Pale straw colour, huge white head. Pleasant aroma of spicy saison yeast, some fruity hints too. Spicy and fruity notes in the flavour too, with decent herbal hops. Very good beer.

Decently carbonated gold pour with two fat fingers of white foam and lacing. Smell and taste mirror each other with slight variations. They both are a clinic in belgian yeast: buttery lemon, light must, phenols, biscuit, flowers and grass. The taste hits with dry earth and big black pepper, where the smell lifts the sniff with apple and general esters. Feel is yeasty, springy, bright, medium bodied and dries through the sip but middle does thin a bit. Great pairing with BBQ pistachio. Wonderful classic saison for springtime. The wife liked it

look: gigantic fluffy white head with very good retention, beer is a super pale lightly hazy light straw colour, gentle carbonation rolling up the glass.

smell: white wine, sweet green grapes, pear, apricot, vanilla, belgian yeast, white bread, wild saison aroma, leather, floral, smells great.

taste: light, but complex tasting saison, all those whacky saison flavours there, hard to describe, leather, goaty, farmhouse, earthy, lots of gentle floral flavours too, lot of white wine and pear as well, nicely sweet, light bitterness on the finish, very tasty indeed.

feel: light bodied, super high carbonation, very smooth, very drinkable, dry finish.

overall: a gentle and complicated beer, and very a tasty one too, drinking this while watching ufc 261... odd combo, but it’ll do just fine

Super pale straw yellow with a robust and persistent snow white head.
Nose is soft sweet bread with some fruity floral notes. Something kinda honey like.
Taste has some dry floral/citrus notes over a classic softly honey sweet saison essence. Very pleasant, leans a little sweet for my ideal but pleasantly balanced.
Mouthfeel is soft and creamy with faintly prickly carbonation.

Cloudy straw. Thin white head. Smells like band-aids, vanilla wafers, hay. Sweet funk , esters, saltines. Bitter. Well carbonated.

Can purchased from B. United.

This one pours with a big fluffy head, with lots of lacing, and a cloudy orange and hazy color.

This smells like clove, banana, spicy hops, minerals, and citrus.

Although I'm a big fan of the funky/citrusy/wild saisons you see coming from places like Hill Farmstead, I also love seeing these drier and more Dupont-like takes. This has a great hoppy and fresh bitterness to it, probably heightened by the fact that beer is finished and canned in the US after being brewed in Belgium. There's some nice spiced character - clove, herbs, grass, marijuana, etc, with some light banana and citrus sweetness.

This finishes very dry, with a nice lingering bitterness, and a really good drinkability to it.

This is extremely enjoyable, and extremely well done.

It tasted bad at first. But after the flome settled and it warmed and the pallet adjusted, it was very good.

can (into glass)
Brewed in Belgium, canned in Connecticut
Rocky white head. Cloudy light orange color. Has an aroma similar to fine hefeweizen i.e. sweet spice and banana in a slight degree. Initial sharp note that does eventually soften on the palette. A slight clove tinge, late on the taste.

750ml brown bottle. No bottling date found. Had a paper overwrap.
Clear, straw colored body. Each pour brings forth a billowy white head, which breaks down in time, but the ring is constantly fed by rising bubbles. Thick rings of lacing coverage left behind.
Aroma of Belgian yeast, lemon citrus, coriander spice, earthy and with grass.
Taste of sweet malts, lemon citrus, esters of clove and coriander. Gets more tart and bitter toward the end. Rather dry.
Medium, effervescent mouth feel, texture is soft. Very good carbonation.
Overall soft and dry saison, with the mix of bread, fruit, and spice flavors. No funk. The breakdown of the white head is a show in itself.
