Apply aroma, very full slow-dissolving head. Nutmeg is pretty strong in this. Hoppy initial taste, but smooth finish.

szkot (100) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2005
Pours a orangish amber. Smells of orange and straw. Taste is citrusy, and (surprise) orange-like. Taste is comparable to a dry cider. Overall, pretty good.

Fruity with a hint of chocolate in the nose.Interesting orange brown color. Starts kinda sweet and quickly becomes a little sour and bitter on the finish.

Hazy amber hue, with a light-long foamy head, shy aromas of yeast, malted caramel, spices, follow a medium-bodied palate with a spicy, fruity, malty-caramel flavors through a winey hint and a small bitterness finish

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JAN 24, 2005
Bottle. Smells like a really mild geuze. Kind of sweet nose. Sour, fruity, earthy, bitter hops. Not bad.

hopdog (9829) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2005
Poured a dark, murky brown color with a huge (5 finger) off white head. Aromas and tastes of yeast, fruits and light spices. Light caramel also in the taste. Malty sweet (brown sugar). Easy to drink. The alcohol content was well hidden.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2005 I have only had a few Saisons so I don’t know what to expect from the style yet. This one was far different from the others. I would have called it a gueze. Dark orange with a large off white head. Fruit and yeast aromas. Flavors of yeast and barnyard; light fruit, and sour. Refreshing; seems more like a summer beer. I didn’t notice the alcohol at all. Stay away if you don’t like a sour beer; but I do and this one is great.
