Thanks Doug, You rock!!!!! Hazy caramel coloured body. Thick foamy off white head....sediment floating through out the entire body, looks great! Aromas of oranges, caramel malts, and slight spicyness. Malt flavour upfornt witha sweet sour and very bitter finish. Spice also there. Slight corn aftertaste. Lingering bitterness and corn flavour. Very cool to try

Thx to Jeremy for this one. Nice light spicing, some orange, malt, funk. Lots going on in the flavor. Clove, orange, tonic (this is the first time I’ve used this in a deScription in a good way), spicing. good stuff.

Thanks for the bottle Doug! Much appreciated. Thick bubbly of white head sits on top of a heavily carbonated orange coloured body. Lots of sediment here too! Nice! Aroma is of orange peel, spices, sour notes, and sweet malt. Complex! Taste is orange peels, spices, sweet and sour bitterness, and some grassy notes. Long lasting aftertaste that is bitter and sour. Well balanced!

The Lure:
A compact 1/2 inch head thrones over a yeast particle-filled sand orange body. Portly, doughy Belgian ale yeast aroma with, maybe, some orange zest.

The Festivities:
An omnipresent yeast, from doughy to bready, to dusty and bitter, all in a creamy body with low carbonation.

Witnessing all the stages of making bread without getting a taste at the warm and hearty results.

Thanks Stephen for the opportunity!!

Bottle thanks to Ken and DougShoemaker. Cloudy amber color with lots of little floaties. Thin white head fades quickly. Some lacing. Aroma is pleasant, slightly fruity. Taste is malt and yeast. Slightly drying. Pleasant.

Lubiere (11951) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2004
Dark reddish brown with thick moka head. Almost maple toffee aroma. Nice burnt caramel brule, like flan syrup, with notes of raisins. Very sweet but invigorating, especially after shoveling this heavy icy snow. Nice little hops in finish. Bottle. From North York Sammy, thank you sir!

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2004
341 ml bottle courtesy jercraigs. Cloudy deep golden orange colour with a frothy, rocky, and creamy off-white head. Floral, citrus, spicy, and peppery aroma. Dry, peppery, and spicy flavours with a lingering peppery bitter finish. Yeasty flavours build as it warms. Light to medium bodied, dry and very lightly fizzy mouthfeel.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 9, 2004
Bottle, shared with CapFlu, tiggmtl, Rastacouere, Beerhugger, Radiomgb, and DumDum in Ottawa. Smoky amber, lightly hazy, little head. Flowery, perfumy nose...flavors sharply bitter, spicy and smoky-burnt flavor; a bit too sour. Drinkable, not bad, but boring.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2004
Bottle pours cloudy golden, frothy off-white head, superb lacing, with low carbonation.   Slightly floral & herbish on the aroma.   Somewhat bready/yeasty flavor, with very light spices.   Kinda reminds me of a German Hefe in some ways.   Medium body and mouthfeel.   Finishes wheaty, with very little spices.   This is a saision?   Something is missing...   Thanks goes out to radiomgb for the trade!

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 8, 2004
Floral and mildly spicy nose. Amber-copper colour with thin, white head. Lightly phenolic with some tart peach/pear-like fruitiness and a gentle finishing floral hop flavour and bitterness. Soft palate and low carbonation. Overall a bit too ale-like without the characteristic saison yeast flavours. Bottle enjoyed with beerhugger, CapFlu, DumDum, muzzlehatch, radiomgb and Rastacouere.
