marcus (6022) - 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.

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2008
Draught. At Vices et Versa. This is the Saison Hopfenstark blends with their Postcolonial IPA to make the Wonderful Saison 55. This one pours a slightly hazy gold, average white head. Simple and crisp aroma, bitter spice and herbal notes, sweet fruity malt - clove, coriander, apple and banana. The taste follows, but there is more fruitiness and less herbal/pungent spice bitterness and more sweet, yeasty malt - it veered toward hefe flavour. Light body, slightly dry and astringent from the spiciness, with a quick finish to the sweet malt and a linger that was all mildly bitter spice. "bloody pleasant / sneaky-complex" are my closing notes.

deyholla (5975) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 7, 2012
On tap. Pours a hazy amber gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has sweet grains and citrus up front with a nice complexity added by the backing rye and Belgian yeast. Flavor begins with sweet citrus and grains with a hint of flora and backed by rye and Belgian yeast.

after4ever (5947) - Brier, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2013
750, capped. Pours a slightly hazy burnished medium gold with a loose white head that doesn’t stick around. Wet grass and some oregano on the nose. Flabby medium body. Floral notes, grass, and oregano on the mid palate. Not their best stuff.

Glouglouburp (5929) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2007 Cloudy glowing orange body topped by a short-lived medium white head. Leafy coriander, herbal spices and lots of freshly squeezed citrus fruits in a yeast dough. Very yeasty beer with a doughy mouthfeel, maybe even a little floury. Feeling of drinking an orange muffin. Finish is orange flavour with some leafy hops. Another good offering from Hopfenstark. I can drink that stuff until the taxi suddenly takes on colorful aspect, makes loud noise and has a spinning light on top of it.

blankboy (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2008
Draught at Vices & Versa. Pours a hazy, bubbly yellow-gold with an average size diminishing white head. Lovely aroma with lots of fruit, spices and light floral hops. Flavour’s quite floral, fruity, spicy and with a light bitterness. Medium bodied. A unique and enjoyable take on the style.

mcberko (5378) - 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.

mabel (5371) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2008
[1434-20080531] Tap. Smells like old barley sacks and a bit of sour yeast and light meats. Hazy, orange red body with a medium-lasting bubbly off-white head. Sour yeast flavour. Medium body. Quite good.
(4T @ Mondial; Montreal, QC)
