Bouteille. Le liquide a une robe légèrement orangée et finement voilée. La mousse blanche cassée a une bonne rétention. Au nez, les quelques traces de levure rustre sont rapidement obnubilées par des effluves de pêches, d’oranges et d’épices. Les céréales de seigle rejoignent des parfums de banane qui s’affirment avec allégresse. Les houblons sont en fleurs et sont sucrées. Bouquet intéressant. Le goût est frais, je dirais même très frais avec des saveurs fortement fruitées et épicées et légèrement mielleuses. Les saveurs des houblons sont aussi en fleurs et manifestent une amertume fantomatique. En bouche, le liquide a une tenue somme toute solide avec une effervescence juste et une texture crémeuse. La finale me semble maltée, fruitée et épicée, voire même salée avec une touche franchement métallique.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2011 au fût au vices et versa, belle bière ambrée, nez de seigle, d’épices très raffinée, en bouche les épices dominent, très agréable, finale longue et épicée. Version bouteille: le même agrément, belle mousse blanche, une pointe mordante, très agréable.

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.

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.

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!

Grzesiek79 (3485) - 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.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - 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.

Eructoblaster (3363) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle - 750ml. Beautiful cloudy golden body with a thin white foamy head. Fresh, well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with yeasty and flowery hints. its sharp hoppy taste carries grainy, yeasty, and coriander notes. Ends with a sharp bitter/sour finish. Well done.

probstblueribbon (3298) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2008
500 ml bottle from brewery via Lubiere (merci!), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. Hand-written label. AP20/08.

App.: Cloudy medium-amber with a large off-white foam. Aroma: Much like a dubbel – some raisins, molasses, toffee, licorice; lots of bubblegum esters (too much, me thinks), minty, sweet-smelling with a slightly saison-esque funk; some yeast and bread dough. Palate: Medium+ body and very soft effervescence. Flav.: Much like the nose – thick, gooey malts, heavy-handed pink bubblegum, minty, a touch of funk, a bit nutty; off-dry, a bit tangy and a little bitter with a peachy aftertaste.

Perplexing – Dubbel meets Saison...Daison? Subbel? Not sure if I like the results of this experiment, particularly due to the bubblegum esters. Might retry.

puzzl (3257) - 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.
