Shared bottle courtesy of cbkschubert. Pours a fairly clear golden color. Aroma is esters a light fruit. Slightly sour and much to my liking. Clean a fresh on the palate even though this is over a year old. Very nice. Thanks Craig!

Saison de la Soeur Golden pours a crystal clear golden leaning toward a polished copper. Two finger fluffy white head formed on the pour and the lively carbonation kept it there for ages. Leaves great clingy lacing. Aroma has the dusty summer field of wildflower aroma I find so intriguing. Tart green apples and a squeeze of lemon juice show up as well. Spicy yeast quality fills the nose. Flavor is right down the same path as the aroma. Spicy, flowery, and quite refreshing. Green apple skins and a squueze of lemon sourness. Nice flavor. Light bodied and refreshing with very lively but massaging carbonation. Finishes slightly dry. This is a quality saison that if cellered properly is still holding up very well. If you can get your hands on it give it a try.

Pours a hazy yellow/golden color with foamy white head. Aromas of straw, grass, hops. Flavor is lightly acidic and lightly bitter. Not very exciting.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2006
Bottle shared with lukin, feedmecookies. Aroma: bread, chocolate, kind of acidic, a bit of hops, "saisony." Cloudly gold with a soft, puffy head. Flavor: pungent, saaz, earthy, wet mushrooms, phlegm. The goldings hops are noticable too. Pretty dissappointed with this.

Very fine white foam atop a golden slightly cloudy liquid. Lemony, dog blanket, some fun funk that increases at it warms, bit of sweetness. Poitns for unusualness. Very happy to pick this up at Hi Time Wine in COsta Mesa. Heavyweight will certainly be missed. This is spectacualr.

Rating #600.
I had this bottle last year in Baltimore at Max’s. It pours a murky golden color with a creamy white head and sticky lacing. The nose is sour and yeasty with notes of citrus. Nice citrus and tart fruit flavor mixed with funky sour base. Also noted the spiciness and wheat in the flavor. It has a nice lemony sour finish that is crisp and refreshing. It is to bad about Heavyweight. This is superb beer. Beers like this will be missed.

750ml bottle. Pours orange\golden with a decent sized white head. (i am on a mission to scoop up all of these beers, before they cannot be found any more). Aroma of citrus, yeast, fruit. Flavor is citrus, fermented fruit, tart, carbonation, and spices, good body, good brew.
