look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a nice, hazy, strong yellow with a near creamy white head. Really good retention, smooth, even dissipation with decent but scattered lace.
Smell is the usual suspects: banana, clove, malt, yeast, slight hops. Really good balance.
Taste is surprisingly tart, and much welcomed. Malt, yeast, banana, clove, a hint of citrus, too. Balance is quite good.
Medium + body, tart especially up front, dry from the middle on. Warming was a nice, unexpected, surprise. This is more of what I expect from a Saison. Tight, light, effervescence on the tip of the tongue.

8.9 ABV--pours amber, clear with 1/4 inch head and high carbonation. Taste is pear, apple, hay, and Belgian spices. Hits all the expected notes and is very clean. Not boundary pushing, but good for the style. I would get this again.

Thanks Willie. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy burnt golden orange color with a half finger’s worth of sustaining white foaminess. Thin messy lacing roams all around the glass nicely. The aroma starts thick sweet bready/yeastiness with some sweet citrus pulp striding in nicely. Spices seem there but definitely stay in the background. The flavor brings in the sweet breadiness with the sweet citrus. Spices, still stay far in the background. Sly sweet bready/yeasty aftertaste. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation feels pretty low in this. Overall, it’s a decent saison, nothing out of the park and may be a bit aged right now, not sure (lack of bolder spices makes me think that).

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of fruits, some spices. Taste is spices up front, malts, fruits, citrus, very easy drinking, especially at this abv. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

Pours a fairly translucent golden color, with a stark white head. No lace, very bubbly.

Aroma is rustic and earthy, with a musky yeast note and light fruitiness.

Taste echo's the rustic nature, with some grassy and herbal hops, grape skins, yeast, bread crusts and a light fruity note.

Body is light, crisp, effervescent, dry and clean.

Its a good Saison. Not as rustic as I prefer, but not as fruity as some poorer examples tend to be. Hope they bottle it for summer.

It has a very floral smell and pours a amber color. The taste is very pleasant with a hint of pear and spices. Overall it was very good and I will be having another one soon.

Lazy Magnolia Lazy Saison has a medium, white head, a clear, bubbly, burnished gold appearance, and a thin lace curtain left behind. The aroma is of bready grain and herbs. Taste is of those things, with some yeast and mild hop bitterness riding along. There is also some cream of wheat in there. Mouthfeel is medium and somewhat slick, and Lazy Magnolia Lazy Saison finishes dry, easy drinking, and only the slightest bit alcohilic.
