ComradeK (1028) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours a murky dark gold, with a large off-white head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. The aroma mixes spicy Belgian yeast with floral, fruity and mild pine hops. Quite strong pine, spice and floral hops notes up front give way to spicy saison yeast and light bread malt in the mid-palate. More spicy yeast blends with floral hops in the finish. This is a pretty decent beer on the whole. The hops flavours are a good match with the spiciness of the yeast, and give it a little more interest than most saisons.

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 22, 2013
A nice pseudo Saison style with a blend of tropical hops and peppery saison flavours. The pour is a cloudy, hazy golden yellow with a massive foamy white mess of a head. The nose is multi faceted with a pale ale esque tropical and fruity hop aroma and a traditional peppery and earthy saison backbone. Light toasted bready malts and honey sweetness are also noted in the aroma. The mid palate has a mild toasty bread malt with a hint of lemon zest and overly fruity notes. A mild bitterness pervades the flavour profile into the finish. Moderate spice flavours with pepper and coriander on the finish give a noted Saison style flavour. This beer has a very unique flavour and as an experimental beer this is a tasty blend of a pale ale and a saison.

330mL bottle. Pours cloudy pale gold with a big fluffy and persistent white head. Wonderful aroma of earthy yeast, fruity and floral hops and some sweet malts. Fairly bitter with a mild sweetness and some citrus. Light body with a fuller mouth feel, lively and quite creamy carbonation and a long finish.

Eructoblaster (3021) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle - 500ml.Beautiful, cloudy blond body with a thick, lasting white foamy head. Fresh, sharp hoppy aroma with coriander and citrusy hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Its sharp hoppy taste carries coriander, citrusy, yeasty, and some grainy notes. Ends with a long, dry, robust bitter/herbal finish. Wow!
