Glouglouburp (6022) - 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.

slowrunner77 (5910) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 27, 2014
"this was unique, especially in the aroma, tan with a medium-full body for the style. nice brew. aroma slightly hoppy, with a definite rye character, but also some bark (?) and earthy. the saisoniness is in the background in the flavor too, but it’s pretty nice all around."

jredmond (5458) - Manhattan, New York, USA - AUG 2, 2010

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Tap at Bond (1 block from DDC). Pours a slightly hazy deep golden with yeast or hop particles floating around- big lasting white head and solid lace. Aroma is earthy, musty, herbal hops, and good fresh bready malts and some cracker hints. Hoppy flavor with slight woodsy hint, herbal, and good bready light carapils anda drying easy going finish. Very nice easy drinking saison/belgian ale- the typical saison yeast character isnt really found here, but the beer is still real nice.

nimbleprop (4973) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Sampled at Max’s in Baltimore. Pours a transparent orange amber with very little cloudy white head. Aroma is floral, herbal, sugary. Flavor is sweet, malty, oranges, tropical fruits, passion fruit. Finish is full bodied, sweet.

Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2010
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty beige color ale with a huge light dirty brown color head with great retention and some very good lacing. Aroma of funk and farmyard is quite intense with some light apricot and some light spices. Taste is quite complex to describe though yeast is properly the main component that produces a very funky taste with light fruit notes of apricot and candy. Body is full with limited filtration and great carbonation. Very well brewed and somewhat disappointed that I can’t find this more easily.

presario (4649) - 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.
