Pours a darkish red/brown. Aromas of spice, coriander, yeast, and alcohol. Flavor has an alcohol taste to it, mixed with a nice smokey dark fruit. Also has strong hints of spice and orange.

gyllenbock (4858) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2011
Bottle. (the bottle was old) Hazy light amber with a huge white head. The liguid was thick and almost syrupy. The aroma was rather fresh with something "strange" in it. The taste was yeasty with something that reminded of lemon yogurt. Really a strange beer but next time I must try a fresh bottle. I hesitated if I would rate this or not.

Miksu (4948) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 2, 2011
Bottle at Chris O’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2011. Hazy yellow color. Musty, earthy and fruity aroma and flavor with grapefruit and white pepper. Slightly acidic and slightly tannic. Complex and rustic beer.

FatPhil (9405) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 18, 2011
750 ml bottle (ChrisO’s pre-GBBF2011 "Donkey Dork Lord" shindig)
Sour aroma. Very dry and musty. Some fruitiness too. Thick and mashy body. Lacks the fresh grunginess of a good saison. Didn’t inspire me.

Bottle at ChrisO’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2011. Pours cloudy yellow-gold with a filmy head. Crisp, slightly grassy aroma. Nice sweetness, light bread in the flavor. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Very faint warmth to finish, bit more grass, yeast and light sugars. Nice beer.

Bottle at chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig ’11. It pours orange-amber, with a thin foamy white head and moderate carbonation. The nose is strawberry, orange, pineapple and spice. The taste is hay, straw, lime, lemon, orange, spice, pepper and grass. A pleasant saison.

laiti (5750) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2011
75 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu. Rated on 17.10.2008
Aroma has lots of forest-like hops and fruits, especially lemon. Flavour is foresty too and it has some brown sugar with some lemon. Good and refreshing saison.

Thorpe429 (5012) - , Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2011
UPDATED: APR 7, 2013 Updated review (04.06.2013): Amazing notes of lemon with a bit of pine tree. Backing light acidity and a bit of pineapple. Tropical fruits. Very dry and light. Awesome. Original review (04.22.2011): Bottle shared by drabmuh. Thanks. Served in a tulip. Pour yields a slightly-murky golden-ish beer with a good white head and some slight lacing. The nose brings forward a good mild funk along with some hay and earth. Some peaches and other stone fruits lingering in the background. Some floral notes as well. The taste lays it all out--funk, earth, hay, fruits, and some dry floral notes. Really nicely balanced with a crisp, dry finish. Drinks pretty well. A very nice beer. Best quote during the consumption of this beer: "You don’t have a power animal? I’m laughing at you." Original Score: 7 / 4/ 8 / 4 / 16 = 3.9 Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-14-2011
