Bottle… Murky, dark caramel ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. The aroma is of ripe apples and spice. Light to medium-bodied with soft carbonation. Earthy, but tart and fruity. Reminiscent of green apple cider. Tangy, watery finish. Thanks to mgumby10 for popping the top on this one!

Bottle @ Scott’s Summer Saison tasting. Thanks so much Scott! Milky, cloudy orangish brown appearance with a small tan head. Somewhat oxidized, bready, light fusel, somewhat spicy, dark fruity aroma. Orange, dark berry, tangy, somewhat sour, bready, light cardboard flavor. Maybe peaked a little white back but still fun.

me mates thought it like a tasteless cider. Beige yellow. My mature tastebuds found it a very good yeast preparation. In the yeast peach, lemon, celery. Good with spicy veggies.

750mL bottle, courtesy of julian, pours a cloudy dark orangey brown with a voluminous white head. Aroma is a bit oxidized with metallic notes, Belgian yeast, and stale wet cardboard. Flavour of wet cardboard, cork, and other dry, construction site notes. Lively carbonation. Too bad this isn’t a bit newer as I think this would be very enjoyable fresher, but as is now, this is past its prime. Not s good.

Old ass bottle. IT is big time oxidized, some minitiness and cardboard, some spices.

shrubber85 (8836) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 23, 2005
Bottle. Primarily a musty aroma with fruit tones. Orange yellow with large, quick collapsing head. Light apple juice flavor transitioning to a musty, dry flavor - very much dry wine-like. A nice drier saison.

Bottled at the Chris_O Beer, Cheese and Curry powwow. A hazy golden coloured beer with a wispy white head. The aroma is funky and peppery typical of the style. The taste is funky with lemony and peppery notes. Funky, interesting and very tasty. Cheers Joe.

Pour at Scott’s saison tasting, dark red pour with off white head, aroma has notes of herbs candi sugar, apple, sour fruit, lemon, caramel and toffee, hints of dark berry and oak as well, funky and spice notes come through. Taste is a mix of dark cherry, caramel, toffee, biscuit, bready notes with some candi sugar, green apple, slight oxidation with a sour fruit, and oak middle, finishing fairly sweet but sour, lots of subtleties going on.

Hazy light orange with a white head. Soft nose of some spices, wheat, oranges, coriander. A dullness appears mid drink, but disappears into an orange peel, grapefruit and wheat flavor, with a slightly fizzy palate though a bit thin and a light sweetness throughout. Decent.

I’m as excited about this one as my last college 3-way (circa 1991). Big thanks to beeryum for popping my Fantome cherry. Pours hazy dark straw with gargantuan white head. Aroma of malt, bread, hopcit, perfumy florals, pears and apricots....nice complex aroma. Tastes malty, fruity, crisp and smooth with multi-layered complexity of flavor. The finish does seem a bit tart and one-dimensional.
