marcus (6343) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle from City Beer. Pours murky golden with a decent white head and a sharp fruity aroma. There is a slightly sour fruit and light malt flavor, with a dry finish. Not much of a yeast presence and a bit light on flavor, but easy to drink.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 25, 2012
On tap at Hopfenstark during their anniversary party. Pours a hazy golden amber with a thin to medium sized white head. Soft floral yeast on the nose, spicy musk and toast. A little bit of esters. Medium bodied, sweet malt, floral notes and more yeast. Warm and spicy with a small amount of alcohol warming everything up. Finishes off with a long estery yeast note and a bit more spiciness. Very nice.

mcberko (6017) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 12, 2012
750mL bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of oranges, some light Belgian yeast, and light coriander. Flavour of coriander, banana and orange upfront, with a mild yeasty character. Nicely spicy and juicy saison. Solid stuff.

bhensonb (10765) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Capped 750 from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours hazy dark gold with a slight foamy off-white head. Aroma is a strange earthiness mixed with citrus. Med body. It’s earthy, and citrus, but it has a rather strong dose of phenolics. I don’t think this is infection - not a nasty sour thing - but rather unusual. Maybe it’s the rye reacting with the yeast.

Lukaduke (2045) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 2, 2012
INFECTED.... Opened without any pop, poured a viscous pale golden color with no head. Aromas of sour petrol and rotten fruit. Sipped the same Yuck. Looks like pediococcus to me... hope to try another bottle soon and reassess. On to the station #55.

solidfunk (3660) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Another good saison. Past month started off with a series of bad Ontario saisons and finished with trying some great Quebec stuff. Smells fruity, fermented orange juice. Wild yeast. Pours cloudy blond. Taste has some tartness. Bottle from Peluso.

AlainG (1141) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2012
Liquide à la robe orangée et voilée, surmontée par une mousse dense et persistante, laissant une dentelle exemplaire. Les arômes sont situés sur une palette surette, laissant paraître ce fameux élément gazeux ainsi que de la levure poivrée. Un goût proche du levain par son acidité et une légère amertume imprègne la bouche. C’est bon sans être extraordinaire. (290-260712)
