Grzesiek79 (3257) - 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.

matt7215 (2190) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2008
on tap at volo cask days 2008. perfect hazy deep golden with a big fluffy white head. aromas are fruit esters with some saison funk and yeast. the flavour are of big full bodied saison. esters, spice, some sourness and yeast. the hops are there throughout but really shine on the finish. a very good saison and beers like this are why saisons are one of my new favourite styles.

cfrancis (2410) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2012
Pours a cloudy light straw yellow with a small white top. Aroma is spicy rye, yeast, a little hop. Taste is a nice warming dry, spicy rye, yeast and a great bready malt profile. Slight hop bitterness in the aftertaste.

Ernest (6260) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Bottle (6.5% ABV, brewed May 2013). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of gum, lemon zest, pepper, hint of spearmint. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Whoa, baby! Ok, so this is a Saison Dupont clone, there should be absolutely no debate about that. It’s not quite as aromatically vibrant/complex (obviously not as phenolic), and the finish is not as balanced/bitter as Dupont, but otherwise this is a fantastic rendition. It’s very clean, and offers a fantastic fluffy mouthfeel. Alas, the matter of price is where the glowing words must end...at the same store here in Boulder, this beer is $15 compared to Dupont at $9. So...Dupont is better...and *substantially* cheaper. So explain to me why I would ever buy this again?

electrotype (236) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 16, 2013
Ça sent bon et frais...Une vrai Saison! Un beau corps pétillant, juste comme il faut : cette bière a du charme! En bouche, c’est également frais, ça goûte un peu les céréales, un peu les fruits. Une excellente Saison!

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.

3fourths (8100) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle. Effervescent and lightly hazed honey-colored body with a fine white head. Very Dupont-like nose. Citrus fruit, sugar / sugar cookie, peppercorns and phenols. Hoppier and sharper and closer to the recent Cuvée dry hopped batch. There’s a difficult to identify aroma that’s something like orange juice pulp, aromatic hop cones and bathsoap... it really seems to be the key to why the aroma works so well here. Medium body with soft and creamy carbonation, lots of tart, dried fruits, a silky, creamy but frothy and filling yeast character with natural carbonation to give it softness. Astonishing tartness and dryness in a beer that seemingly smells sugary and fruity. Crisp, quenching acid, medium+ bitterness, low sweetness, good acid, quaffable and flavorful. Mild hints of alcohol emerge after it breathes and warms.

adnielsen (9252) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a hazy golden orange appearance with a cream colored head. Spicy herbal yeasty, quite rustic, peppercorn, banana, lemon aroma. Lightly tart, peppery/chewy/bready yeasty, moderately dry, dull lemon citrusy flavor. A lot of dry, grassy, herbal notes. Fun to drink.
