Idiosynkrasie (3630) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2014
750ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, golden colour with huge, frothy, fully lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Fruity hoppy aroma has hints of apricot and peach, hints of rye, vegetable, unripe pear, spicy yeasty overtones. Taste is fruity, hints of apricot and peach, minimally peppery, spicy yeasty overtones; subtle tartness. Soft, gentle, micro pored, nevertheless sustainable carbonation for excellent palate. Superbly balanced, thoughtful crafted.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2008
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!

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Bottle shared by Drew. Thanks! Pours a paler gold with a big white head that falls. Nose is full of citrus. Also some black tea and orange blossom. Clean pils and vanilla. On tasting, it’s a bit flabby. Peach and vanilla, more tea and citrus. Medium bitterness but has a pilsner sweetness that keeps it from drying out. Solid but not quite there.

DYCSoccer17 (3302) - 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.

mansquito (3295) - 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.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 15, 2008
Tap at Vices et Versa. Spicy, orange zest, black pepper and thick yeast aroma. The pour is orange, loosely filtered. A bit meaty, chewy as it warms, with nice spice and a definite bitter hop finish. Quite nice.

thegreenrooster (3174) - 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.

Grzesiek79 (3148) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 18, 2014
Dobre pyszne i pelne smaku i aromatu. Doskonale odzwierciedlone piwo Saison w stylu Belgijskim. Mnostwo piany trwalej i pieknym metnym ciemno zlocistym kolorem. Zyto takze zostawilo tu sporo osadu. Spore kawaleczki plywaly na dnie pokala. Po dolaniu calej metnosci piwo zrobilo sie szarawo pomaranczowe. W smaku dodatkowo chlebowo drozdzowe. Nieco cytrusowosci. Orzezwiajace i przyjemne w piciu. Brak goryczki ale nie byla potrzebna w tym przypadku.

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.
