L: Hazy but translucent straw, with a big creamy white head, with fairly good retention and lacing.

S: Banana, apple, pear, lemon, straw, cracker, bubblegum, clove. Smells like a hefeweizen.

T: Crackery malt with straw, lots of green apple, pear, and lemon. Some underripe banana. Dry with clove on the finish.

F: Medium-light-bodied, but lots of carbonation. It actually feels rather fluffy.

O: A really tasty beer, but a saison? No! This is a hefeweizen. A really good hefeweizen, but certainly not a saison.

Remember its a rye beer. As a saison, its an interestingly good beer. Good in small doses.

Pleasant taste but a bit thin to the taste and thin head. Not remarkable.

On-draught @ Randolph Beer Wburg.

Soft. It commits to German yeast judging by the loud banana esters and bubblegum phenol, but it's a bit too much here; I hoped for more emphasis of rye malt's signature spiciness. It's also overhopped for a saison or roggenbier, and its tropical key lime hop flavour is too dominant. Finishes oddly dry, bitter, and even metallic.

Smooth, creamy, wet, and...a little dirty or stale. I have to wonder if the draught line this was poured through is clean; this isn't a pleasant brew.

Imbalanced and underwhelming. I'm not sure what they were after with this, but it's neither much of a saison nor much of a rye beer. Given its title, I thought at the very least it would showcase the eponymous rye...

From a 16oz can. Pours a clear, light yellow with very little head. Seems like a cross between a lager and a farmhouse ale. Light on its feet, both in nose & palate. Crisp, very refreshing with only a mild tartness. Very satisfying beer for a hot day in the summer esp with 4.8% abv.

Poured from a 16 ounce can into a Teku glass.

Pale yellow. Hazy and effervesence. Little to no head.
Smells lagery. Thin, sweet, and grainy with a heavy dose of lemon peel.
Light, spicy, and refreshing. Floral and grainy, a pleasant saison, but I wish the noticeable yeast were funkier perhaps. A mite fruity, citric, and metallic as well. Pleasing against the tongue, it ultimately doesn't deliver any knockout notes, but it's a solid, drinkable, summery saison.

Golden yellow slight haze. Fragrant rye pepper lemon and spice. Drinks with plenty of hearty cracker and herbal hops. Lemon is just sweet. The peel and maybe a ltitle pith. Tart moment but nothing too loud. Nose is lemony citrus with a hint of something tart.As it warms it gets a little sweaty and funky. Soft sweet earthy funk and lots of soft herbal. The herbal is sharp but not dank and is not terribly strong. The lush earth and cracker malts are the most powerful scents. The spice is like headdy perfume. The rye gives it pepper and a crispness. It's not so dominant though as to make you think dark bread . Just light rye bread and lemon. Tasteful. I think this brewer has made an excellent saison.

Decanted into tulip pint from 16 oz can. Pours an apricot to golden color with a thin off white head. Nose: hoppy nose with pleasant citrus fruitiness; palate: similar to the nose, but with apricot, mango, and clove notes. Light bodied with a refreshing cast. Would definitely have again or serve.
