Palme (4134) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2011
0.75l bottle @ RBNAG11. Pours a clouded copper-orange body with a small filmy sidesticking head. Aroma has yeasty fruit-hints, some pears, apples, apricot and nuts. Average carbonation with a oily mouthfeel. Flavors are also fruity, strange mustard seeds-tones, some apples and nuts before I get some yeasty hints in the somewhat dry finish. Nice stuff!

JulienHuxley (5590) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 29, 2011
Bottle thanks to Dany. Appearance: Dark gold with creamy white head. Aroma: Matly, light yeast and lemon. Some Dupont light and enjoyable funk. Taste: Nice mix from the malts and yeast along with a thirst quenching acidity. Very refreshing. Palate: Full bodied and lively carbonation. Overall: Very good as expected with Dupont.

Sigmund (6719) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2011
Shared bottle, RBNAG 2011. Deep golden to amber colour. Main impression of both aroma and flavour is "moderate everything" - but this would probably stand out as a decent saison if sampled on its own, and not in immediate connection with many sours. Decent hops in the finish.

Spab (3390) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2011
750 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits (Halifax). Pours a hazy amber colour with good-sized lasting cream-coloured head. Aroma is very Belgian yeasty - sweet/sour light fruits, spice and a bit of caramel. Flavour is dominated by fruit notes - grapes, apples and pears sort of sweet, sort of musty, and a distinct spicy note. Finishes somewhat dry and musty. A nice one.
