3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at Cellars Wine & Spirits in St Paul, MN, and shared by brewfiend. Pours a semi-hazy golden brew with an average off-white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film. Aroma of light golden grain malt, some citrus zest and grassy hop character and a touch of apricots. Taste is medium bodied, some light carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, some citrus hops, white grape and some fruity pear. Finish is semi-sweet, fruity aftertaste that slowly disappears with a light grapefruit finish.

BCTC. Sampled from a big 1 liter bottle. Pours a cloudy medium amber/deep copper with a fizzy head. Aroma is very floral and fruity with hints of raspberries, roses, lily flowers, and other herbal notes. Light spice in the aroma, pepper yeast, fruity and herbal. High carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of the funnest brew of the tasting. Hazed amber color with a moderate white head. Funky aromas with lavender, spice, cinnamon, and hints of brett. Mildly citric in the flavor, with light lemon grove and wild flowers fields in the background. Equally as complex as pannepot, but the flavors and aroma, to me, where much more enjoyable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2007 I thought it was a saison, and this is what I imagine saison used to be when it was intended as a refreshing beverage. Some acid in the aroma. Barnyard and horseblanket aroma. Sour, yeasty flavor. No alcohol in the nose or flavor, which is what I expected. I finished off the contents of the swing top bottle 6 days after first opening. The beer is still sour, but also has more of an earthy quality. It is brown and opaque with lots of sediment. This is good.

A nice flowery citrus aroma. This has some crazy floral bite to this. Very tangy with a lot of citrus. Mostly just strange. No way to accurately describe this and I’m not sure if I like it.

Poured a hazy orange with chunky yeast floaties. The aroma was sweet with notes of flowers, spicey cracked pepper, orange skin, toast, and a hint of honey. Decent complexity. The flavor was sweet and almost ginger ale like. Spicey with a wet finish.

pours a murky light orange color with a huge creamy off-white head. little bit of sediment floating in glass. aroma of flowery hops and black pepper. aroma is somewhat similar to a fantome saison. flavor has notes of hops, pepper, bread, peanut brittle, grapes and berries. light bodied. hint of tartness on the palate. seems more like a summer beer than winter.
