goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Poured a hazy gold color with a large off-white head. Very long lasting. Yesty and caramel aroma with notes of spice. The flavor is of caramel malt but it is also fruity. Light to medium bodied.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 27, 2008
Pours a lightly hazy dark orange color. A frothy, light tan head settles to a thin film, leaving flares of lacing behind. Aromas include candy sugar, honey, cream, and candied orange peel. Coriander lends spiciness, with sweet, bready yeast completing the nose. Flavors showed the same elements, with the addition of a welcomed floral hop kick. The bitterness of the hops lends much needed balance, countering the sweetness of the creamy candy sugar. Medium-plus body, moderate carbonation, highly drinkable. The alcohol is well hidden. Overall, this is a very enjoyable and sufficiently complex beer. It’s a worthy homage to Pauwel Kwak.

guzzler67 (1495) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 23, 2008
Huge, puffy, off white head atop the hazy, amber/orange body left good lacing. Yeasty, sweet, candi sugar aroma mingles with soft fruit. Sweet and spicy flavors interact nicely in the taste. Medium-bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with a smooth, slightly herbal, long lasting finish.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - JUN 14, 2008
Golden color with an intensely carbonated head that nearly explodes out of the glass and creates a pillowy froth. The aroma has a bit of yeast, lemon, and spice. Very flavorful with some breadiness, a bit of citrus, some pepper, and a hint of lemon rind in the finish. The body is light and playful in the mouth. Goes down very easily.

treadyroc (149) - St. Leonard, Maryland, USA - JUN 3, 2008
Not a lot of aroma to speak of. Pours copper in color w/a slight, fizzy head. There’s initially a sharp taste, followed by caramel-y, malt-y through the middle. It has a surprisingly thick mouthfeel. Very fresh, but nothing I can sense to distinguish it as a saison.

DocLock (7832) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Bottle from State Line. Pours hazy dark straw/orangy colored with 3-fingers of head that reappears with every repour. Nose is spicy yeast, bready malt, citrus, rock sugar. Tastes citric, with some sweet honey and apricot notes, some dry florals, spicy yeast, and rock sugary malt. Very smooth and velvety on the tongue. I wouldn’t hesitate to buy this again.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Bottle at Paul’s Hoboken Gathering: Hazy honey-colored pour with a strong white head. Sweet nose with mainly honey, banana and some diacetyl character. Smooth carbonation with a sweet flavor. Lots of honeyish notes and mild over ripened fruits. The finish has a very light spice hint. A bit too sweet overall, but not bad.
