DanielBrown (4340) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2011
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Faintly sour aroma, with wholemeal. Bready flavour, with some sweet cereal. I didn’t peg this as a Saison, it seemed more like Leffe Brune or similar. Wasn’t great when chilled, but definitely better when a little warmed.

jazz88 (2646) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 4, 2011
Bottle. A dark brown color with a thick tan head. A roasty malt aroma with a light spice that increases in intensity as it warms. Almost a light fruit flavor on the well balanced malty base. An interesting and delightful saison.

GodOfThunder (1248) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 2, 2011
Pours a lively dark brown with a dizzy head. Yeast, yeast and more yeast. The yeast kicks you in the balls. Pretty good, though, even with all the yeast.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2011
A Mes rate. At Chris O’s pre GBBF.
Probably not quite worthy of our 7k but there we go. Dark brown with a thin off White head. Fruity brown beer in a very Belgian style. Spritely yeasty notes and a good rounded malty finish. Nice enough.
