RSRIZZO (1852) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 7, 2008
750ml bottle courtesy of Headbanger. Aroma is a bright sour scent with hints of apple. Color is a hazy orange brown with good carbonating and a thin tight white head. Taste is sour and citric. Starting with a medium body it goes down with a crisp feel. Finish comes in sour with orange and coriander flavors then a faint tartness on the end. In the after taste there is a mild sweetness. This is an amazing brew, it combines the flavors of a white with the sour feel of Flemish.

750 ml (8/10/08)-Pors a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, coriander, orange, and sweetness. Taste of the same with a little more citrus than most other saisons. This medium bodied brew has a dry finish with a tweak of alcohol. A nice tasting Saison.

hombrepalo (1823) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2008
750ml bottle thanks to OldStyleCubFan for this big bottle. Poured a golden body with a good size head. Aroma is of yeast and spices. Medium bodied, creamy texture, soft carbonation and a chalky finish. Short duration, moderate sweetness and acidity, light bitterness; nice herbal hop and straw, grassy malt and yeast flavor with trace citrus notes. Overall a nice tastey Saison.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - AUG 29, 2008
Bottle. Pours a very pale yellow with incredible head and carbonation. Nose is musty and damp. Flavor is that of funky, basement with some barnyard. Not that I mind that actually since in some red wines it is very welcomed. However, iIt is thin and slightly bitter, not a full bodied saison. The excessive carbonation became annoying. Definately not worth the $12 price, but I’m not sure at what price it would be worth it.

Bottle from sams. Hazy yellow pour. Tart aroma. Sweet malts giving way to tart grassy hops.

750ml bottle on clearance @ Sam’s for 3.99- Some other raters have complained about excessive carbonation, but this bottle has basically none. A bit of a lactic acid/ lambic/ raspberry smell, some sweet malt cowering behind it and a vapor trail of earthy hops. Sweet malty taste up front yields to some boozy flavors, slight hop bitterness. This might have been good at one time, but I can see now why this was on clearance- really don’t want to finish this glass of flat unenjoyable brew. At least the bottle is high quality, will reuse it for homebrewing.

Bottle from Swolf! Thanks for sharing wolf! Hazy yellow in color, small head. Raspberry aroma. Taste is a nice fruityness of raspberries and spices. Kind of tart, and lots of carbonation but overall a good summer time brew that I enjoyed on a hot day. Thanks again wolf

Vibrant light yellow orange - semi thick pour with a bubbly head. Big smell of fruit. Lemon citris flavor. Really highly carbonated. Not very enjoyable. Overly lemon.
