CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Batch 1 bottle: Pours a clear bright golden with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a lightly earthy funky nose with a touch of yeasty esters and a hint of cork. Starts with light effervescence and oxidation with some soft malty sweetness and vinous oak notes before a drier, earthy brett finish. Pretty complex, but this bottle seems slightly corked and oxidized.

SirADNielsen (8963) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2012 Bottle @ Scott’s Summer Saison tasting. Thanks so much Scott! Thanks also to Armin for trading for this gem! Cloudy yellow appearance with a white head. Fairly tart, musty, white wine, pear, citrusy aroma. Nice vinous, apple, somewhat tart, lemony acidic, refreshing flavor. Kick ass. (4.2)

Bottle with Jetson in Vail for Christmas. Beautiful, glowing orange appearance with a big, lasting fluffy white head. Potent dry, white wine, spicy peppery, somewhat funky, big barnyard, lemon/tangerine fruity aroma. A bit tart, lemony, musty, white grape, apple, dry, chewy straw flavor. Really a nice brew. (4.2)

Damico (2553) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Bottle from the 1st anniversary aged for a year in my cellar perfectly. Pours yellow clear in color with a big beautiful white head. The aroma is fresh spring grassy meadow notes, lightly not quite floral sweet soft and pleasant. The flavor brings spring farmhouse ale flavors and then it ends a bit dry on the palate with some grassy notes.

yourefragile (138) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 12, 2012
750 mL bottle, poured into a tulip. Pours a filtered, hazed golden straw color with a dense, frothy white head that initially fills the glass. Abundant lacing coats the glass and the head has nice retention supported by a consistent stream of bubbles. Aroma is very dry, vinous and yeasty. Some residual sweetness with oak/vanilla, ripe grapes, and banana but earth and red wine dominate. Not much presence of spice or funk. Smooth, medium-thick body. Soft, fine carbonation with a dry, oaky finish. Docking the mouthfeel a little for the finish which is very tannic and oaky. Similar experience as Sean preceding me. Not as much wine as the aroma, more vanilla and woodsy oak. More brett funk comes through suppressing the fruity and yeasty sweetness of the aroma. Another well made, good but not great saison from HF. I enjoy this more than the base Art I had a few months ago, but the wine barrel (particularly oak flavors) are a little too strong. Reminiscent of McKenzie’s Saison Vautour and honestly a little more consistent in composition. However Vautour is still the standard I look for in this style of wine barrel/wild saisons.

deekyn (1166) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 7, 2012
A - pours nice hazy golden straw yellow with very high fluffy white that lasts forever. Strong lacing immediately. S - really nice saison aromas. Hay, barnyard funk, grasses up front. Nice fruity notes apple and pineapple, nice oak and Chardonnay notes. Hints of spicy saison. 10 M - interesting play in the mouth. Nice strong flavors on the nose that disappear quickly, weak palate, to a lingering dry almost flavorless bitterness. T - nice grassy spicy saison up front, with notes of barnyard funk, yeast up front. Citrus notes of grapefruit, dry non sweet apple, oak and Chardonnay on the palate. Lingering bitter grassy and dry apple end. O - better as it warms. Fantastic aromas to a less than spectacular tastes. Would be spectacular if it has strong fruit notes or more of the chardonnay notes. Still, very good. 3.8

PhillyCraft (3166) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Sample from bottle. Poured a hazy orange shade. Thin white head. Aromas are on the funky side: apple, barnyard funk, spicy saison yeast. Taste is bready, minty, maybe some dried apricot, oaky. Very complex beer that was hard to pin down. Everything worked well together from what I remember.

Thanks to Biggsbowler for sharing. Straw yellow pour with a huge white head. Muted lemon nose. Medium in body and mild in sourness and acidity. Yeast and lemon notes with just a hint of oak. It’s definitely a saison!
