Had this on draught. Remember this one being strange and boring, big on the grass and pepper. One dimensional for sure.

It was just ok. I expected more. More taste, more hop, I realize and appreciate that is crafted in a true old school not much added recipe. I really think with a little more crystal malt, some candi sugar and raisins with a little more amber color it wouldve passed the test otherwise it was alright

On tap @ Bend, brewpub. I wasn’t going to rate this because it was so bad, but decided to warn people. Way over spiced, band-aid and a foul yeast character made this pretty much undrinkable. How could a place like this serve something this bad? Yuk!

On draft at the brew pub in Bend. Pours golden with a light white head. Aroma is yeasty, spicy and a bit of brett. Flavor is spicy, a little sour and grassy. An alright beer.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Draught at the Bend brewpub. A big surprise coming from these guys. I don’t even know If I’ve had a Belgian style beer from them before, and this was quite good. Poured a lightly hazy gold with a lasting, creamy white head. Big tropical fruit notes in the aroma with pineapple, guava, passion, and some lavender and chamomile as well. Lots of fruit juice flavors and some light pale malt, accented by some soft herb flavors. The finish is tangy and dry. Light bodied and clean on the palate with higher carbonation. Really nice bright fruity notes, and very well attenuated.

DYCSoccer17 (3290) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 25, 2010
5 ounce sample on tap at the Pub in Portland, OR. Scant spiciness in the nose with some doughiness and faint esters. The aroma is rather tame. Slightly hazy golden body with a creamy white head. Fruity estery start with some metallic hints in the middle. Tame banana-yeast esters later on. Light and watery, lacking body and complexity. Not really any horseblanket or any other significant saison flavors.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - OCT 10, 2009
Draught. Poured gold with thin white head. Moderate lacing. Spicy aroma with a little hop. Full earthy flavour, some herb, some spice and some sweetness. Lasting finish.

KyotoLefty (6145) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 13, 2009
Draught at Deschutes Brewery and Public House in Portland. Fruity Belgian yeast aroma, cereals, honey, and something not right. Strange medicinal flavor. This misses the mark by a lot. Don’t know what they’re getting at.
