ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 22, 2006
Preparing to go for a rafting trip to beat the heat on this blazing day (107 degree forecast, it’s already 101), this a great brew for the occation. A tasty beverage with a floral, lemon and yeast nose; huge rocky and quickly diminishing head over a highly effervescent, lightly hazy golden body; biscuity malt flavor with a snappy, hoppy and tart finish; tingly palate; quite refreshing and delicious.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Translucent and dulled honey brass in color with a voluminus head booming north of 3 inches, formidably frothy and white. Aroma sets the stage with caramelized wheat, honey oat bread, barrels of oats, callolily floralness, cottonseed, lemon cream cheese danishes, and spliced and dried out lemon rind. Fizzy quaff leads the flavor into a wholesome honey oatmeal portrayal. Ginger root, radish stems and piney whole wheat biscuits. Soapy, lemon like pinesol. Lick them dandelions and chase ’em with ill-fated arrowroot cookies. Effervescent as all can be with a surly incentive that mildly thickens the liquid stream. Too much stale and piney hop residuals overcompensate for the biscuit malt characteristics. Finish begs for liquid replenishment with a modest, numbing alter ego, curtailing to a flavor akin to honey glazed biscuits with too much baking soda. This one tried my patience.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 4, 2006
Pours a hazy yellow golden with a large, pillowy and clumpy-lacing white head. Aroma of sweet biscuity malt and floral citrus hops with some earthy yeast and good authenticity. Body starts with a nice, mild, light Belgian malty sweetness, a refreshing earthy spiced hop bitterness and a smooth bittersweet bready balamce. Thins some toward a slightly warming finish, but otherwise a nice saison.

Otje (678) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2006
Nice tasty saison. Pale yellow with a pillowy head. Good citrus, and belgian yeast aromas, some spices too. Sweetish, bitter citrussy, lemony taste, some funk too. Bitter, piny fruity finish. Nicely balanced, thin bodied. Very decent refreshing saison.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 25, 2006
Slight hazy white color with a medium creamy white head. Sweet fruity aroma. Slightly sour flavor with some sweet fruit and light bitterness.

frankenkitty (1984) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2006
Pours a hazed golden/amber with plentiful carbonation and a huge white head that settles in peaks, leaving thick spackles of lace. Heavy yeast and spice aroma... well-peppered sweat and old fruit with esters and clove revealing late. Overall pungently aromatic yet it corrodes to displeasure when it warms, degenerating to the smell of ass or bad B.O. (think, "homeless guy on the bus"). Sour and metallic to start, spicy carbonation carries dry yeastiness within a filling, fluffy flavor. A few years ago I would have truly disliked this, so I wouldn’t recommend it to novice palates.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 17, 2006
Pours a hazy yellow color with well delveloped head and lacing. The nose is lightly sulphuric with some rustic belgian notes, citrus, wheat and some spicy notes. The flavor is a bit ho-hum here, not snappy at all, lightly musky with some citrus and overbearing yeast. The finish is light and tangy, not too memorable but not bad in any way either. Eh.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUN 14, 2006
Dusty gold with a slight head, sticky and filmy. Nose grassy, some lemon, and mint. Whiffs of chocolate, smoke, and meat. Flavor is quite sharp and peppery, a bit too much. Quite acidic. Herbal, some juniper berries. The strange smokiness doesn’t really work in a saison for me, but certainly different.

Kinz (3567) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 24, 2006
Medium gold, huge head, lightly hazy. Head fell apart fairly quickly. Aroma was of zingy lemon and spice. Flavor matched, initially lemon with other citric notes, providing a bracing acidity and a bit of sourness as well. As it warmed, some more bread and yeast components showed up, as did some spice and earth elements, greatly toning down the initial citric onslaught. Not bad, but not spectacular either. Better cold.

JPDIPSO (5133) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Cloudy straw to golden colored liquid. Mammoth white head. Light orange zest aromas mix with pale malts and fresh herbs. LIght and slightly sweet smelling. Quite dry in comparison to the aromas. Dry dusty malt with a touch of yogurt. A touch of dirt and white pepper in the finish. Linger is crisp with a touch of balsamic vinegar. Just notice the bottle wrapper states a alcohol content of 6.9, while the bottle states 7.5. I feel the 7.5, but I don’t necessarily detect it in the flavors. A few flavors of weeds and dirt that hamper the it in my book, otherwise a nice brew.
