lesifflebiere (1472) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 14, 2013
Blonde tirant sur le cuivré, avec quelques morceaux de levure en suspension ; un peu de mousse blanche crémeuse. Au nez, elle rappelle une blanche : une touche de bananes et de céréales blondes. Le côté saison ressort vraiment en bouche, avec une gorgée toute en épices et en fruits jaunes, avec du poivre délicat qui ferme la marche. On croirait même à du piment vert. Savoureuse et complexe, après une introduction quelconque, elle sort de l’ordinaire dans ce style de plus en plus intéressant.

mansquito (4101) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 29, 2013
The Sampler, Brooklyn ($15): Pours orange with a sea foam head. Aroma is tropical fruit and a bit of funk, but it ain’t as saisonesque as many other saisons. Taste is mildly bitter, with a hoppiness that carries over to the aftertaste. A little on the dry side. Somewhat sweet around the middle. Nothing all too impressive.

fiulijn (16426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle from Elizabeth St., Bellingham
Hazy golden color; small head. The aroma is a bit plastic, some sweat, and light spices. Dry mouthfeel; mid-spicy flavor, but also some vegetables; ordinary bitterness; a bit of metallic feeling in the end.
Not exciting.

thegreenrooster (3533) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Pour is a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is sweet honey and barnyard. Flavor is a decent fresh fruit with some white wine and vinegar. Finish is bone dry and a little tart. No real mustiness or pepper which I like in a saison are found. This was tart and sweet. Found in a bargan bin for 7 bucks.

Gription79 (2612) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Poured from a 750ml bottle. This is a very yeast driven saison. Fruity, banana, some rustic yeasty farmhouse qualities. A good beer, but not that great of a saison.

dandeman (654) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2013
from a 750ml bottle bought at Peluso in Montreal. Aroma: cereal and grain with little lemony accents and Candi sugar. Appearance: Hazy blond / straw developing an average thickness head, creamy and long lasting. Head is sticking well to glass leaving a good lacing. Taste: We can well feel the Belgium yeast doing the work here with peppery and acid notes. Hops are at work also, leaving a floral bitterness that last for a long time. Acidity and bitterness are the main characteristics of this beer. Flavor notes are light but mainly Candi sugar, pepper, grain and cereal. A farm taste with a slight acidity. A good traditional season within style.

Johnsense (997) - - MAR 30, 2013
Cloudy gold pour, huge head. Aroma of funk, cloves, very yeasty. Taste is reminiscent of a tripel, belgian yeast, clove, slight pepper, banana, saison barnyard funk. Fairly tart. Getting lots of rye as well. Medium body. I’ll call is a saison hybrid, and one thats very refreshing after a long day of runnng errands.
