750mL poured into tulip glass

Color is dark yellow, got a few inches of head with an overly aggressive pour, nice lacing
Citrusy with almost a bit of honey
Very earthy taste with a bit of citrus, almost like lime, a bit of bubblegum on the aftertaste.
Smooth, foamy as soon as it hits your tongue, well-carbonated

Glad to finally try a true Belgian Saison. Really enjoyed the way the way the beer feels on your tongue and the different flavors the beer gives.

ppearance is a cloudy light orange color with a thick, lingering head. Wonderful yeast aroma. Flavors of yeast, sourdough bread, and faint citrus notes. Very carbonated, creamy, foamy texture. Funky earthy finish that lingers a bit. Great Saison. Very interesting to try a Saison actually from Belgium, to which I can compare American productions of this style.

Murky orange, with poor clarity, particulates. Average off white foam, frothy, very good lacing. High citric aroma upfront, low floral hops, some yeasty peppery notes. Moderate bitter and moderate-high sour, pleasant dry. Medium body, high carbonation, long lasting dry finish.

From the growler via Jungle Jim's Eastgate in a snifter. This classic saison pours
a lightly hazy golden straw color with a moderate head of white foam that settles
to a thick ring, thin spotty pool, and features light lacing. Nose of grassy hops, farmhouse
yeasty goodness, light grains, subtle breaded aromas, and touches honey and candy sugars.
Flavors exceed the nose with herbal grassy hops and touches of white pepper surrounded by fresh bread
and cereal grains tossed with candy and honey sugars with the yeast notes playing a nice role in the
feel and rear of the taste with touches of crackers on the back. Excellent mouth feel; medium light body,
lightly sweet and herbal, with a lightly dry finish with medium light carbonation.

near perfect for the style. One of my first in the Belgian style and a favorite to this day.

A pleasure to have this one on tap

Cheers

Poured into a Teku glass, from a 750 ml cork-and-cage bottle, 2016 printed on the cork, but can't find a specific date. Pours a bright, hazy golden with a thick off-white head, about 2 inches thick that almost doesn't dissipate at all. Beautiful glow, haze, and head. Extremely pretty beer. Smell is of grains, yeast, grassy hops. Smell is a tad more toned down than I remember, but still hits all the aromas you'd expect from a good saison and then some. Taste is spot-on. Some cereal grains at first, rustic grassy hop character, some slightly fruity Belgian yeast character, and some hops again, and a dry finish. Light to medium in body with a lively, but not overly so, carbonation. For me, this is pretty much the standard for a dry, rustic, Belgian saison, no frills, simple, and classic. Damn near perfect.

A beautiful golden blonde color, with a nice fluffy head and a lot of lacing....Smells of German beer hops....A very smooth flavor, with hints of citrus and sweetness that finishes with a distinctly German-esque hop flavor that isn't harsh. The sizzle of the carbonation here is almost champagne like, and while the finish is somewhat dry, it is still massively refreshing. This beer is distinctly potable and easy to drink. One has to be careful not to drink this one down too fast. One of the finer examples of a Saison out there.

Golden and nearly opaque. Large, lumpy, off-white head. Honey with some clove and yeast on the nose. With warmth, an orange-drenched funk moves in. Flavor is very mild with a strong lean towards sweet. Crisp hoppiness on the finish. Not overly complex, but well done.
