muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 1, 2007
Sampled draught at the Mondial, Montreal (May 2007). Opaque apricot in color, little head, no real lacing....apricots in the nose as well, at first the fruitiness dominates but a bit of earthy funk works its way in eventually....body starts out rather too sweet, dries out a bit midpalate, gets a bit mineralic and salty to finish....somewhat "dirty" or rough on the palate and too sweet and syrupy overall, too much fruit-sugar....drinkable, but a disappointment.

Marheb (4339) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Un nez levuré et poivré qui laisse passer des notes de céréales mielleux. En bouche c’est rond avec une certaine sécheresse incomplète teintée de verdure. Une touche métallique engourdie momentanément la langue. Bon, sans plus.

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 (3852) - 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 (3812) - 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.

MrHangover (3765) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle @ ZZT X, courtesey of Caesar. Pours a clear blonde beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is peppery, very yeasty, light fruity. Flavor is light bitter, quite fruity and has some cheesy notes. Quite yeasty and sweet aftertaste. Quite ok!

Eructoblaster (3649) - 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 (3631) - 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.
