nimbleprop (4970) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 15, 2012
750ml bottle at Paradiso Dupont. Pours a hazy burnt orange with some thin, white head. Nose is muted, some wood, some spice, lightly floral. Flavor is malty, sweet, grainy, light wood, a little unappealing dust, some fruit. Medium, dry finish. Not my style.

deyholla (6707) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of light tart fruit with backing notes of Belgian yeast, sweet grains and flora. Flavor has more sourness up front with a bit of acid and finishes with a bit of Belgian yeast and a note of grass/cedar. Odd.

beernbourbon (1309) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Bottle shared by Cory, thanks! Pour is hazy gold with a small white head. Aroma is initially a bit fruity but then overwhelmed by cedar. Itís hard to notice much else. Flavor also lightly fuity but then the cedar takes over and itís all i taste. I do not have a great track record with cedar beers. I like them, but they usually hurt me. Also smoke in the finish. Not much that identifies this is as a saison. I was still intrigued by this and happy to try it.

VsXsV (2323) - LinkŲping, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival 2012. Hazy golden liquid with medium white head. Aroma of white pepper, coriander, wood, cedar, wheat and bubble gum. Taste is dry/light sweet and light bitter with notes of wood, cedar and white pepper. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. My least favourite of the three versions I tried. Still great though.

yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2012
On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Looking more or less clear in the glass, golden in color and with a dense, finger-thick white head on top. Thereís quite a lot of cedar in the aroma, with pine cones, grapefruit peel and a generic fruityness. Not much maltyness. The flavor is less influenced by the cedar, but itís still there, along with grapefruit peel, fruityness, a little touch of pale malts and an appropriate level of bitterness. Full-bodied, creamy and soft on the palate, quite dry. Bitter, citrusy finish. A really nice one, tasteful and quenching even though itís quite high on the ABV level. 120511

jhgrantjr (417) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Poured a hazy orange color with seven head, good carbonation. Aroma of cedar, predominantly, and citrus, spices. Taste is sweet, but with a bite. Again, the cedar is dominant. Not as good as the others in this series. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours gold with a thin white head. Aroma of cedar, citrus and spices. Taste follows, I'm not sure I love cedar in my saisons and this has quite a bit of cedar ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gedronken met joes, benzai en dutchdrebus, goudkleurig, sigaren kistje geur, houtsnipper, zo rook onze oude kast. Hij smaakt ook naar hout en een beetje verbrand. Veel koolzuur.
