jimhilt (2539) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 25, 2007
Explodes out of bottle with a white head that takes a while to fade leaving some lace. Cloudy amber color. Floral nose. Fierce carbonation - like champagne and medium bodied. Flavor starts with some sweetness becomes tart, smooth anyway, dry finish. $8.99 for a 750ml bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - FEB 24, 2007
Sampled @ Aofoxxy’s Labor Day gathering ’06. Nose of yeast & wheat. Pours a light straw. The huge white head is creamy/rocky, firm and very sticky, leaving nice lace behind. The very balanced flavor has moderate acidity with a prominent malt toastiness, and a sweet finish. The watery palate is soft to the point of almost being flat, but feels crisp at the finish.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2007
750ml. Beautiful white rocky head with an aroma of flowery fruity springtime. Has an earthy, dry, farm, grainy taste with some drying hops in there, some bitter lemony flavors as well. Full creamy mouthfeel as it warms. Delicious.

750mL bottle. Hazy yellow with a large rocky white head. Mild citric fruit and spicy yeast derived aroma, with lemongrass and butter. Delicate malt flavor, grainy wheat and heavy citrus fruit ester. Vegetal, earthen component emerges later. Lemon skin, and buttery, wheaty malt flavors in the finish, with a faint lingering peppery tinge. Mouthfeel is a medium light, somewhat dry.

Poured a hazy yellow color with a medium size white head. The aroma was yeasty with a phenolic spice. Doughy and wheaty sweet lemon notes. More of that wheaty lemon in the flavor. Notes of yeasty spices. Lively mouthfeel.

Jerre (3032) - Waregem, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2007
Bottle, 75 cl. Cloudy golden with haze and big white head. Hints of spice, in the aroma. Taste bitter, yeasty and hops. Bitterness is little high, but refreshing on the palate. A very nic beer wathever people says.

thebeertourist (5169) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 16, 2007
75 cl bottle. A great white head crowns this hazy golden beer-beautiful! Complex fruity aroma with yeast and subtle spiciness. The flavours deliver tart fruit with a punch of alcohol and a good bitter finish, leaving the mouth dry and wanting more. Grassy and herbal hops marries well with the lemony wheat. A refreshing Saison from the other side of the Belgian language border.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2007
I’ll start with the head this time, since there is so much of it and it looks like it will be a while before I can get to any liquid. Served in a Hanssens Geuze glass, the foam piles up about 5"; the beer beneath it about an inch. A rather fizzy suds then condenses into a massive block of cream, depositing pillows of foam on the sides of the glass as it slowly collapses. A long minute or two goes by, and now I have three inches of beer and an inch of thick head. I pour again. And wait again... The beer beneath the foam is well carbonated and pale straw yellow. I haven’t stirred up any yeast deposit yet, so the beer is not hazy or cloudy in the least. Nice aroma of yeast, hay, bee pollen, and a somewhat past-its-prime lemon. Prominent tangy wheat flavor, with lots of bitter lemon and grassy hops. The beer is quite dry, with a hint of barnyard. Lightish body, tons of carbonation, and very drinkable if you like your beer dry and tart and tangy. I sure do. Once the yeast is stirred up, the beer is quite hazy, I don’t detect any difference in the aroma, and the taste changes only slightly - adding a bit of the bee pollen to the mix.
