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.

Ungstrup (34334) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2012
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, rye, yeast, caramel, alcohol, and straw, leading to a dry alcoholic finish.

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.

nimbleprop (7487) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 23, 2013
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.
