PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Tap at Spuyten Duyvil: Cloudy golden with an off white dense film of head. The aroma has some underlying rich bready malts- lightly sweet mild apricot notes- dryish/chalky phenols. Thick creamy carbonation. The flavor mixes spicy phenols & fruit skin bitterness. Light apricot/softly sweet- light bread crust and preserves followed by a light noble peppery presence and residual spicy phenols to dry it out. A nice, dry Saison.

DYCSoccer17 (3354) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 2, 2009
A 25.4 ounce bottle acquired in a trade with MatrinT. Thanks. I shared this one with my brother. Sweet, musty, dusty yeast notes present with prenty of esters. This is not as sweet as the Hennepin that is also a part of this tasting. Mildly hazy honey colored body with a long-lasting medium white head. Starts a bit metallic with some astringency present as well. Some yeasty esters follow, which are not overbearing. Plenty of doughy flavors in the middle, followed by some nice husky, chewy, grainy flavors. This has a lightly grassy and metallic hop finish. Quality stuff.

presario (4705) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 17, 2009
Glass at brewery. Thick creamy white head. Big funky scent. Drinkable pepper and light lemon. Aftertaste is almost mushroom and a bit buttery.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAR 14, 2009
On tap, Vices et Versa. Pours opaque gold with a white head. Wheaty nose. Body has intense clove and wheat, with a spicy, herbal finish. Palate remains pleasingly buttery throughout. Solid beer, if not stylistically overlapping with Belgian Whites.

radiomgb (2363) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2009
Clear golden orange in colour with a thin white coloured head, light lacing. The aroma was of oranges, lemons, some spice, bread and yeast. The flavour has some grapefruit, moderate bitterness, lots of citrus, yeast, must and a bit of brett. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes bitter, with yeast and spice.

This didn’t have as much grapefruit as the Station 10 that I just had but was a bit more intense in the flavour. Moderate amounts of alcohol at times, quite refreshing.

Draught at Mondial 2008, Montreal, Quebec.
Sampled on May 29, 2008.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2008
On tap at Volo Cask Days 08. A sour/tart nose with a hint of yeast. Cloudy orange/golden with a minimal white head. Taste is sour fruit, yellow plums, white grapefruit and starfruit come to mind. Light bodied, very well balanced, complex, tart, dry and most refreshing. Terrific.

rudolf (2342) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Tap @ Cask Days. Very hazy golden yellow, soft but resilient white head. Nose is tons of yeast, bright fruits, banana, clove, apple skins - a very aggressive nose. Flavor is bright apple skin, light must, eyast, lemony banana. Earthy fruit in the finish. Very nice and verrrry aggressive.

Cloudy orangey golden pour with a thin offwhite head. Nice aroma of yeast and fruits. Good flavor of yeast, bread, fruits and some sweetness. The body is medium with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation. Another very good saison from Hopfenstark, keep ’em coming!
