UPDATED: SEP 10, 2004 This pastoral storyteller, fond of yeasty bonds and orange juice ponds, feels like a product of pure oral tradition coupled with a sane dose of delirium...The tintinnabulation of truthful coriander rides atop the fabulation of boastful citric acid...He even confides that grains of paradise grew plentiful in these humid, damp soils not long ago...He has a silver tongue which has the power to influence and propel with a panoply of audacious affability and gracious quaffability... Some bottles can get very foamy though and the uberfluffy feel tends to mask these munificent flavors...

Bottle shared by Savvy1982 at the 2010 RBSG Grand Tasting. Thanks! Apple-cider-looking and extremely cloudy. Aroma of spice, apple, citrus, cream. Very dry, with a slight acidic sourness, a little bit of yogurt and apple, herbs-quite herbal. Very nice indeed.

arminjewell (9262) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 4, 2012
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.

marcus (9231) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 27, 2005
This copper-colored ale poured with an almost negligible white head. There is a funky lemon scent and an equivalent acidic lemon finish after an initial geuze-like mouth feel. Like most Saisons, this is a satisfying hot weather drink, but the unusually full flavor makes it good for any season.

3fourths (9149) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 11, 2004
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.

Bottle. Fluffy white lasting head. Clear golden body. Spicy malty fruity aroma. Spicy fruity leomon pepper hoppy flavor with har carbonation and a long bitter aftertaste.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2005
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.

bb (8572) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 13, 2005
Bottle. Reddish-amber-honey color with a thin white head. Sour aroma with some lemon. Sweet/tart flavor with lemon and some spiciness. A bit refreshing. Mixing in the yeast adds a touch of vomit that isn’t all that unpleasant. Here’s my take on this beer - it seems like the people who rate it high don’t mention a sour/tart flavor. The people who rate it low notice this. Infection? Who knows. But my bottle wouldn’t have been a bad gueze, but it wasn’t what I was expecting with it’s almost Cantillon like sourness.

Hansen (8436) - Assentoft, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2004
Flavor is clear and fresh, sour and astringent. Aroma has the sourness. Colour is orange, medium head.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 22, 2011
Apparently a very very old bottle. Pours with a hazed murky brown body and a small white head. Aroma is minty and spicy with crushed grapes, ethanol and white wine. Flavors are bready, malty, and minty. Noticeable oxidation. Light bubbles. Tastes faded.
