GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - APR 14, 2013
750mL thanks to beerandblues2. Full haze, muddier dark orange pour. Very thick beige foam. Big retention and lacing. Nose is heavy esters, banana, compost, dense spelt/rye flakes. Taste is dusty, heavy wheat bread crust, Biere de Garde in profile with malt overload. Palate is drained for Biere de Garde with lemon tea thinning. Overall, good but not a saison. Biere de Garde would be apt.

750ml bottle gushed then poured a hazy, light caramel with some frothy, white head. Nose is heavy with grain, chewy malts, biscuit, bread, a little dust. Flavor is malty and sweet, bread, a little bitter green, more brett in the flavor than the nose, caramel. Medium bodied, dry finish.

Location: 750 ml bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 6/19/12, I just added this one and sent in a picture for it, might as well hit the trifecta and review it first too...

Aroma: Nose of Belgian yeast, spice, some funk, a little bit of rye malts, grass, pepper, and a little fruit
Appearance: This one pours a cloudy golden orange color with a half inch sheet of beige head that really doesn’t ever seem to dissipate and some fairly heavy, sheeting lacing on the glass as well
Flavor: This one has a lot of funky/yeasty flavors up-front, there is also some light rye whiskey, with an a underlying sweetness, and a spicy, slightly tart, and mildly bitter finish
Palate: The body is medium-full, it is smooth and creamy, with a soft carbonation, and a lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: I liked this one quite a bit. Not everything about it works perfectly, but it is a pretty good effort, and a nice collaboration. I’m glad I got to try this one, it is right up there with the best things I have had from Choc.

Bottle thanks to my friend Jamie: Poured a copper orange color with a fluffy off white head. Aroma is thick sticky fruit, a little metallic and some rye. Taste is sour apples, sweet malt, and a spicy rye finish.

jesperhammer (4175) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2012
27-AUG-2012, bottle @Papsø. Hazy orange with off-white head. Saison-like spice aroma. Taste is much more rye and malt. The rye has taken some of the freshness from the saison. Rye bread and spice. Better on aroma than taste. High carbonation.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2012
750ml bottle from Springhill Wine & Spirits in North Little Rock, AR. Pours a cloudy, copper-orange colored body with a finger-width, dense, foamy and frothy, dirty tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is spicy rye, sweeter caramel, and a good amount of Belgian yeast. Some yeasty spice, green pepper, touches of toffee, and a light banana bread note. Flavor is papery, Belgian yeast phenols, sweeter caramel with some banana bread, and a light peppery spice up front. Some rye spice, more green pepper, and a hint of citrus. Finishes with a caramel sweetness and rye spice that never seems to fully come together before drying with a light bitterness. Medium length aftertaste following a medium body and a pretty lively carbonation. Overall, not a bad beer, but not overly enjoyable. Some caramel sweetness with a long rye spiciness and Belgian yeastiness with just a light bitterness. Not really my kind of saison.

Bottle, 75 cl, at Papsø. Cloudy orange with a small white head. Lots of yeast in the nose. Bready. Phenollic. Notes of orange zest. Sweet malty flavor, spicy, with an edgy, dry, medium bitter, peppery finish.
