hawthorne00 (2549) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2011
Bottle. Very murky light orange with a coat of white head. Aroma of ripe and under-ripe quinces, pears, vanilla, pepper, fenugreek. Tastes really quite tart up front with some pear-like sweetness and spices. After the mouthful of fruit the taste falls away to just lingering spices. A little too much fruit for the beer, I think - the intial tartness of the quinces is too much for what comes after. But itís refreshing and a very good soft cheese beer. Pretty bold stuff from an Australian brewer.

harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2010
Bottle at the Chriso Gaylord tasting 09. Hazy orange gold colour with lasting beige head. Wheaty and slight spice in the mouth. Soft in the mouth. Some carbonation sting on the swallow. Bit of hop on finish. Soft and fine and very drinkable.

bluevegie (3059) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2010
Tried this just prior to Xmas and found it quite refreshing, wasnít too sure what quince would taste like and probably couldnít remember or describe it again. Slightly hazy golden body with short head, fruity and soft spice in the taste, smooth and easily drinkable.

Dredd (701) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2010
I wasnít sure what to expect going in to this one after a recent bad experience with a beer fortified with apple. The aroma is great, nice yeast and spice with a fruit undertone coming through. The appearence is hazy orange with a thick white head that lingers. The initial palate is a strong fruit with element, mid palater is a bit weak where a lack of carbonation brings on a watery element and finishes strong with some nice estery elements but finishes a bit short. Fortunately no sign of taint that was describe by Stew41.

Stew41 (1754) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - JAN 17, 2010
Sharp fruits, even for a saison. The Coing fruit adds a tart, stonefruit like flavour along with some dry pepper and lemon. Despite these quite appealing features thereís a piney sour character, albeit subtle, that points to a fault. Unfortunately this showed up on the BdG recently sampled.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 24, 2010
Bottle thanks to dlau. Pours a weird very cloudy orange. Minimial slightly off white head. Very strange looking beer. Aromas are definately on the subtle side. Perhaps some yeast, a little wheat malt and some spice. Not much happening. Flavours are much the same, Lots of yeast and some spice near the end.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 11, 2009
Draught at The Local Taphouse, Sydney. Pours a very hazy grapefruit/pear colour with a small white head. This would have to be the ugliest looking beer Iíve ever seen. Aroma is artificial sweetener, candied apples, burnt rubber, plastic and band aids. The flavour is more of that sickening sweet sugar coated apple and yeast. Itís a bizarre mix and the quince just didnít work in this beer, well for my palate anyway. Sour and tart finish. Perhaps Iím missing something here?
