From a 750ml. green bottle with a notched best before, in french, on left hand side of front label, 10/07. Made a good appearance, poured into a tulip chalice a cloudy with sediment orange hued copper with a large frothy, rocky white head that reduced to a 2cm. foamy sticky lacing. Had a farmhouse aroma, a funky, earthy yeastiness, followed by a tart sweet fruitiness. Good carbonation and a dry, slick medium bodied mouth feel, good drinkability. Had a good earthy yeastiness and tart fruity taste, a mellow, relaxed bitterness, just enough sweet maltiness to balance the taste, a slight alcohol sting on the tongue and a dry, yeasty, tart finish.

750ml - 2004 - Aroma is funky yeast, spice, black pepper, carmel, and hops. Pours a dark orangish-brown with a huge head and great lacing. Bottle was a gusher. Flavor is bread dough, hops, and Christmas spice. Palate is smooth and creamy. A tasy brew.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2006
A Mes rate: 75cl bottle from The Belgian Belly. Initial impression is OH MY GOD this is over carbed. Great aroma. Smells and tastes like this sample is reasonably aged but there is no way to tell from the bottle but it was covered in dust and very old looking. Very creamy and fruity. Rather nutty too, peanut butter maybe. Very bitty finish. Pretty tasty overall.

Silphium (3192) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 23, 2005
Hazy orange-red body with much suspended sediment, medium tan head. Floral, sweet, petaly aroma, with sweet breads and caramel. Sharp, somewhat tart body, earthy, toasty, and caramely, big on the yeast esters. Spicy. A bit tea-llike, with appropriate bitterness to balance the breads and caramels. No real sweetness. Herbal, balanced, and tasty.

jon112981 (327) - Bristow, Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2005
Bottle. An orange pour with a fat white head. It smells and tastes just like most other saisons. Itís a little less warming than I expected. The taste goes away quickly though.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2005
Sampled at a 2005 Christmas and Winter beer tasting at Delilahís, Chicago, IL. 2001 vintage. Hazy amber ale having no discernable head and carbonation. No discernable aroma. Thin bodied that starts with light sweet malt and sour flavors. Finishes dry with sour malt aftertaste. Thin, watery, and sour tasting to boot, this is beer sure tough to drink. Bad bottle perhaps? As this is a 4 year old vintage beer, I will probably will need to resample in the future.

750. Deeper amber color, cloudy, fuller sized beige head, very long lasting and pillowy. Pleasant aroma of cheese, some lighter funk, lighter fruit, quite yeasty and herbal. Flavor is also pretty herbal with some funkiness, yeast, citrus. Really nice components but altogether a touch mild. Medium to full bodied with lots of carbonation, but itís very soft and it has a tiny bit of acidity. This is a solid beer and if the flavors were fleshed out a bit more it would be mind blowing.
