Koelschtrinker (10720) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 25, 2012
Bitter hopfiger Beginn mit grasigen und Kaugumminoten. Trockener und etwas röstig im Mittelteil, vergleichsweise wenig hopfig, was dafür im Abgang wieder stärker hervorkommt. Hier zudem grasiger, recht süß. 7/9/9/10/9/9

Cask pour at Ginger Man. Slight funk, leather, citrus, grassy, herbal, Bretty, solid carbonation, body is on the lighter side for 7.5%. The finish bitters up a bit with a spice palate developing. Nice.

Bottle split with Pat, Vin and Tom. Pours a lightly hazy amber golden body with thin white carbonated head. Aroma is funky citrus, grass, and citra hops. Mouthfeel is light with notes of grassy hops, citrus fruit, and a muted funkiness to it.

ben4321 (3950) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 20, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Norm’s, 3/20/12

Aroma: The nose is has some big Belgian yeast, lots of spice, some fruit, grain, and some hops
Appearance: Pours a clear golden-yellow color with a small, slightly fizzy, white head, and light lacing
Flavor: Tastes differs from the nose, more hoppy/bitter and citrus/lemon, while the spice, malts, and yeast take a little bit of a back seat, but then on the end palate the spice and funk really come through
Palate: The body is medium, with average-to-fizzy carbonation, and a lingering dry, funky finish
Overall Impression: This was a pretty interesting one. From the nose it really felt very saison-like to me, but the flavor was a little different, and on the mouth I got much more of a combo saison-IPA. I liked it, and I found it to be an interesting combination.

Bottle via SL. Poured aggresively in to a snifter. BIG head that almost over flowed... Nice lacing left on the glass, a bright orange color that lets a lot of light through. Lively nose of spices, floral and citrus hops. Taste is a nice blend of saison and ipa. I think the saison kind of stands out more than the hops. Not bitter but hoppy... grapefruit, citrus. Earthy, spices, the saison yeast really comes through. Medium body, good amount carbonation. Overall. Nice beer. Even though I enjoyed it for some reason I dont like the idea of mixing a saison and an IPA..

dutchtuga (135) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2012 Fantastic special brew for the In de Wildeman pub in Amsterdam. With the Viven maybe the most aromatic IPA around. The hops are overwhelming but in balance. Too bad this is a one time brew for In de Wildeman. The first tapped Farmhouse blew me away. Friends of mine even came back to the pub especially for this beer. A classic.

sonnycheeba (3570) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear copper, with medium, frothy white head; short retention and some lacing. Aroma is grassy and dank hops, wheat, cookie malt, spice, and citrus fruit. Flavor is sweet malt forward, heavy his, and light citrus esters; dry, choppy finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

Elwood (3223) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Serving: Draft at Fireworks in Leesburg. It pours a hazy gold color with a rocky white head. The nose is full of spicy hops, yeast, and grass. The flavor seems to lean more towards the grassy side with notes of hay, yeast, and spicy hops. Lengthy bitter finish. A nice take on a saison.

20120303 12oz bottle from Wine World. An acceptable hoppy saison, and I was hoping it would be that based on the name. Not much funk, but a bit of that herbal Dupont note that’s kind of woody with watercress and some root veg. Citra is a savior for many beers.Just knock it down a bit in ABV and let the yeast work more and this one could be a regular quaff.
