A hazy peach color with a persistent cap of white head and good lacing. Light fruit like apples in aroma with some grain and hay and a hint of tartness. Taste has apple, pears and grape skin with a mild tartness as well as some mustiness and woody flavors. Mouthfeel is crisp with a light medium body and effervescent carbonation. Finishes dry. Very nice saison that is easy to drink with nice flavors.

Tmoney99 (11709) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Tap. Poured clear golden color with an average creamy white head that was lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour yeast and fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy blalanced sweet & sour flavor with a medium to heavy sour & sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex drinkable beer.

Rastacouere (6155) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 13, 2013
Cloudy very pale golden hue topped by a healthy, fully lasting white sheet. Intriguing aroma, rather intense with a straight to the point funky side reminiscent of wild flowers, eucalyptus, alguae, dusty cobwebs, moldy lychen on forest trees and rocks. Certainly has a green, almost vegetal component to it, but this remains perhaps underneath the highly lemony lactic character that resembles a lambic. Very dry mouth presence, an impression further amplified by vigorous carbonation and a very mineral, almost salty mouth presence. Tight, lean palate with plenty of refreshing acidity. Not very clean, nor elegant, but thirst-quenching to the max and well-focused, easy-drinking. What a nice surprise. Then again, I’d never noticed that this beer was rated was high in the first place. I feel privileged to have tried it.

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks good; a transparent golden ora ge with foamy white head. Smells solid; tart, spicy, yeasty, earthy, and a little funky. Tastes like it smells with a nice, dry mouthfeel. Good beer.

weihenweizen (2086) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Refrigerated 75 cl green bottle poured into a tulip. Pours hazy light orange with big white head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is nice slightly tart saison Belgian yeast aroma, medium carbonation, medium body, and some thin small bubble lacing. Taste is tart lemon, oak, slightly spicy yeast, with dry finish. Good saison.

rodenbach99 (3498) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2015 Bouteille de 750ml avec une capsule métallique. Cette bière hlevète est dorée foncée avec une mousse blanche épaisse. Un nez de sucre, de caramel, une touche oxydée et finalement avec du bois. La bouche est ronde, épicée, sucrée, pas trop funky, boisée. Elle est facile à boire car la dose de gaz est élevée. La finale est un peu aigre. B.B. juin 2014. Bue aussi en fût au St-Bock (mars 2015) avec note constante.

Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have tart citrus notes, some floral character, moderate funk, a sticky sweet character, grass with mild bitterness. Easy drinking, pleasant saison.

DrSilverworm (8183) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2013
On tap at Dutch’s. Half-hazy golden yellow color. Nice thin off-white head, with good retention, leaves good thicker splotches of lace. Looks nice. Medium to bigger body, sort of bigger for the ABV - lightly sticky. Very nice bright, lighter, sort of soft carbonation. Gets lightly dry in the finish. Good light to moderate sour taste, light spice, light bitter. Nice light spice, lemon citrus, mild funk to the aroma. Tasty sour saison. Good texture, and an enjoyable long funky aftertaste.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2013 Draft at Ginger Man. Funky nose with Bretty aromas. Leather, band-aid, mushroom. Thin, fizzy body. Tart but dry.
