Très bonne saison pas trop abîmé par l’age, au contraire, très douce. La levure dévoile tout son profile de foin humide, d’agrumes. Belle représentation du style.

Chudwick (2144) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - NOV 19, 2011
22OZ in a half-liter mug - pours lightly hazy gold with white head and moderate lacing. Nose is Belgian yeast. Aroma is spicy (pepper), light hops and a little smoky/roasted. Tastes is ever-so slightly sweet and lightly bitter on the finish. Medium body with mild carbonation and slick texture. Nothing special. This beer could have made a fine belgian ale.

Leafs93 (1680) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Pours hazy gold with medium white head. Aroma is earthy, spicey, florals and maybe a hint of pears. Taste is sweet and spicey, a little tartness on the finish as well. Finishes somewhat dry.

WabashMan (1012) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - OCT 4, 2011
A nice saison, with big notes of yeastiness, spices and sweet fruitiness. Light and crisp enough to be very drinkable, but with adequately deep flavors and alcohol to make it stand apart from lighter offerings.

JStax (2980) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Poured from a bomber into a session glass. Appearance is a hazy gold with a thick head of beige foam resting atop. Aroma is spicy and slightly grassy. I get notes of jasmine and light herbal hops. Taste is spicy, estery, herbal, and a touch grassy. Pretty good for as long as it’s been setting in the refrigerator.

Sweet, honey meadish aroma with a little bit of belgian spice detected. pale color with brilliant clarity. a little ring of foam around the glass hangs around the entire time. very prevalent honey sweetness, mixed with alcohol and some Belgian yeast spiciness. super light body with effervescent carbonation (tingly!). Bitter sweet aftertaste. Overall, an interesting beer, refreshing for the hotter weather. I have another bottle, but will probably not age it much longer.

An interesting brew; aroms has some flowers and honey. The body is a bit strained at first, but mostly it’s peaches. The finish is stickier, probably form the honey. Certainly unique but not necessarily all that good.

brokensail (10914) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 24, 2011
From August 2009 notes. A: The beer pours a cloudy golden straw color with a tall white head. S: An incredibly floral aroma. Lots of jasmine to it along with some of the peach and perhaps even a touch of honey. A light malt note to it, very soft but slightly sweet. Quite a bit of yeast with a mild citrus note. T: The flavor has a distinct spice and intense floral quality to it. Jasmine notes are certainly there and there’s a hint of lavender. Sweet fruits such as apples and peaches with a lightly sweet malt flavor. M: Quite light in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: Nice and easy to drink, great for the summer time. Not sure how it might be holding up these days.

Hot booze spice aroma. Medium to thin body. Smooth malty wheat flavors. Good not great saison...

22 oz capped bottle, sampled July 2nd, 2011, ~2 years old: pours crystal clear straw with a thin, starchy white head (quickly diminishing). Fruity, bubble-gummy, and effervescent aroma...nice, but not funky enough for my saison tastes...Palate is moist, fruity and sweet...not quite as dry as I would prefer, but the moist-ness works well with this beer. The carbonation is lively and tingles - perfect for my tongue! Linger peach aftertaste, leaves me wanting for more...
