Terminus (3543) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 24, 2004
12 oz bottle-pours a cloudy orange hue with minimal white head. aroma of noble hops, banana, corriander, and a wiff of a garden (yes a veg garden). flavros of oranga, banana, clove, and an earthy/citrus hop finish. The long finish has more of that citrus hop bite like a pale ale, but its so far in the finish that it doen’st show up in the starting flavors. The high alpha acid hops give t his "saison" a different kick. Some metallic notes in the mid palate as well. Is this a dry hopped belgian? Thats what the aroma and finish show. HoTD gave this beer a really cool spin.

Reid (2237) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 15, 2004
usual HOTD brown short neck and label. In appearance this a is a very hazy light orange ( like a hefe) with a smallish but persistent bubbly white head. Again the aroma says to me "hefeweisen"..though less pronounced than the german varieties..I smell the usual esters and wheat..weird. Again I get the typical "banana" taste of a hefe..there are some hops and some pronounced Belgian like spices. The mouthfeel is good and satisfying..dry finish. I liked this a lot its like a cross between a German Hefe and a belgian wit( yes they already are close). I have no expierience with this style yet i found this a very refreshing beer.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 13, 2004
Very yeasty, banana aroma. Cloudy, bubbly light golden in color with light and dark floaties. Tangy citric flavor, very light and refreshing body with a lemony afterglow. Decent Belgian style golden ale.

shadey (2055) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 11, 2004
Bottle thanks to Indiana_Red!! The pour is a shiny orangy with a bubbly white head that quickly dissipates. The aroma is a citric sour. I very much enjoy the smell of this beer. I just wanted to keep my nose in the glass the entire time. Very smooth, very tastey. I am not sure how this qualifies as a Saison. I wouldn’t really know where to put it, but its delicious, whatever it is. This was my first HOTD and I a huge fan. Highly recommended.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 6, 2004
medium orange & hazy - very thick head. Quite sour aroma, almost unpleasantly so. N ice fruity body - very citrusy. Gets smoother and more subtle as it warms.

Dogbrick (10889) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2004
This beer is a lightly hazy yellow color with tiny bubbles and a thick white head that made for a delayed pouring. Thin but foamy lacing throughout. The aroma is lightly hopped with a touch of citrus and spice. Light-bodied with a fairly flavorful blend of fruit, wheat and spice, along with a hint of malt at times. The finish is a little spicy along with fruit and yeast. It’s hard to classify this beer, which is par for the course with HOTD. It’s not overly complex but it is tasty and easy to drink, so it works for me.

ross (2128) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUL 13, 2004
golden color with a white head. looks pretty good. smells fruity and a little hoppy. taste is kind of bitter, and the only other saison ive had was more fruity than this- it had an apple type smell and taste. this one doesnt have that. it is fruity though, mouthfeel is very carbonated. not a bad brew, not the best ive had though.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 30, 2004
Appearance: head is small and diminishing; cloudy straw colored body; Aroma: fruity, pineapple, pear, yeasty lightly lemony/floral hoppy; flavor is sweet and somewhat bitter and spicy, definitively dry and lingering; palate is somewhat watery and flat. I’m not sure I’ll be returning for more.....

irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - JUN 27, 2004
pours a hazy pale yellow, with a huge, dense white head. nose is very complex-some yeasty notes-bubblegum and light medicinal aromas -with some light hop spice. flavor is a good blend of yeast and hop charecters built on a lightly malty base. finishes dry and peppery. very easy to drink. good saison.

Poured a nice white head. Very yellow in color. The taste really stands out from the appearance. Yellow fizzy beers can be great!! Myriad of flavors, nice hop finish. Very pleasant beer!
