thirdeye11 (5618) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 2, 2012
(750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye at RBWG) cloudy gold-orange pour with soapy offwhite bubbles. Nose of wet wood, tart cranberry and honey. Taste of cranberry, tart orange, very drinkable and well carbonated. Awesome saison.

BoBoChamp (5659) - Gent, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2012
75cl, Vintage 2011 (golden foil), new exclusive brew, from De Hopduvel Gent, complex brew, floral/sweet and slightly bitter/spicy, not too heavy, balanced, cloudy, rocky head, good brew, yet very expensive!

3fourths (8212) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 10, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2012 bottle conditioned 750ml, 2011 (gold foil). billowy tall white head with lasting retention. heavy minerallic and phenolic nose of banana match sticks / sulfur and gravel / dry concrete; strongly peppery and musty with a touch of what seems to be smoked malt. the boldness and surprise is what captivates me so much. medium-full body with rich and chewy banana and candy sugar with a touch of muddled tropical fruits, and it’s surprisingly dry - not at all what I would expect from 10%. highly bitter, highly dry, medium-high acid, intensely musty. honestly quite hard to wrap my head around.

AmEricanbrew (5901) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Hazy golden color with white head. Lemongrass, mint, coriander, pale malt aromas. Medium bodied. Lightly tart lemon flavors with honey, herbal sweetness, and coriander, clove spices in a pale malt base brew--very good

theblindshaman (6) - Alabama, USA - JUL 28, 2012 does not count
Average example of a saison in the funkier style. A bit of smoke in the middle. Pours cloudy with a long finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
