FlacoAlto (4133) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Sampled from the tap, July 2010 at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas
The beer arrives with a one-finger thick, creamy, off-white colored head, while the beer is a hazed, pale gold / yellow color. The aroma is herbal and hop like up front (even if it is gruit derived), and has a pale, hay-like grain character to it. The nose reminds me of the scent of orange blossoms, sweet clove in the finish, grassy coriander and that Dupont yeast mustiness. There is certainly a very herbal, hop-like character to this note.

Sweet, honey like pale grain flavors are found up front, while the finish has an almost menthol like, herbaceous bitterness that makes this end with a very dry character; this is especially true when coupled with the typical, musty, sort of cotton ball like Dupont-yeast phenolics (that aren’t quite medicinal in character). A biting bitterness is noticeable at times, but others sees the honey and pale malt sweetness being a bit stronger. The beer is nicely light and quaffable and there is a lemon like flavor here as well as a nice grassy note. This is quite a nice beer, it is very much Saison like, which I will certainly never complain about.

SlovakSniper (4824) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 19, 2010
Le liquide dévoile une robe dorée. La mousse blanche est tenace. Une dentelle est observée. Le nez est particulier et très lourd avec des herbes sèches et humides, des fleurs et des épices, du grain mielleux et des arômes acidulés. Le goût est semblable : des saveurs mordantes de houblons se combinent avec une levure un peu folle, piquante et fruitée. Quelques notes boisées sont ressenties. En bouche, le liquide a un corps moyen avec une effervescence active et une texture qui me semble huileuse. La finale apporte des notes fruitées et des notes amères somme toute asséchantes. En résumé, bière singulière.

rodenbach99 (4066) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 19, 2010
Bouteille de 750ml avec bouche de liège. Belle bière dorée avec une mousse immense. Très effervescente. Nez de mais, grain, foin, donne l’impression vineuse, fruits fermentés. Les épices ajoutées rend la bière très complexe. En bouche elle est digeste, vineuse, un peu mince. Elle offre des saveurs d’une complexité étonnante et surtout dur à cerner.

Suttree (5928) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 17, 2010
The final beer of the pre-brewer’s jam tasting (for me, anyway). Lots of floral spicy notes, with hints of freshly mown (mowed?) grass. A little bit oaky, a little bit fruity, as well.
