DYCSoccer17 (3603) - 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.

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 (3439) - 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.

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 22, 2011
Dégustée en fût au Vices & Versa à Montréal. De couleur orange-dorée et voilée. Nez de grains de céréales sucrées, moyen de pain de seigle, léger de houblon herbeux aux notes florales et léger de levures fruitées (agrumes, léger d’abricots avec des traces de bananes) aux petites notes épicées. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture moyennement crémeuse. Moyen goût de levures fruitées (agrumes, traces d’abricots et de bananes) aux notes épicées (clou de girofle, traces de poivre) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de céréales sucrées avec un moyen goût de pain de seigle (notes asséchantes) ainsi que des traces de biscuits puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère-moyenne amertume de houblon herbeux (herbes mouillées) aux faibles notes florales. Post-goût moyen et moyennement sec, moyen-léger amer de houblon herbeux avec des notes fruitées (zest d’agrumes) et des traces de blé. (printemps 2007)

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.

Reynolds314 (3255) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Sweet earthy saison. Aroma almost has some lactic notes with tons of earthy bready Malta. Yeasty as all get up. Basement, earth and leaves. Soft carb and thin palate.

rederic (3250) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2007
On tap at the brewery, during their grand opening, Hazy amber-orange hue, with a very small beige head, yeasty dough, fruity nose of ripe apples, hint of nutmeg spiciness, a bit wheaty, with a subtle rye cereal note in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, fruity character of sultana, ripe apples, with a flowery hop accent, a nutmeg spiciness, an orangeish rye mouthfeel, leading towards a fruity, malty finish.

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.

GregClow (3095) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2008
Draught (6 oz. sample) at Vices et Versa, Montreal. Hazy golden colour. Lovely aroma of herbs, apricot, and an odd hint of whiskey - probably from the rye. Flavour is quite herbal as well, with notes of orange and lemon, a faint yeasty funkiness, and a hint of pepper in the finish. Very nice!
