Earthy, yet the sweet overtones brought this delightful saison to a rare complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GregClow (2892) - 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!

blankboy (6052) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2008
Draught at Vices & Versa. Pours a hazy, bubbly yellow-gold with an average size diminishing white head. Lovely aroma with lots of fruit, spices and light floral hops. Flavour’s quite floral, fruity, spicy and with a light bitterness. Medium bodied. A unique and enjoyable take on the style.

puzzl (3251) - 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.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Tap at Spuyten Duyvil: Cloudy golden with an off white dense film of head. The aroma has some underlying rich bready malts- lightly sweet mild apricot notes- dryish/chalky phenols. Thick creamy carbonation. The flavor mixes spicy phenols & fruit skin bitterness. Light apricot/softly sweet- light bread crust and preserves followed by a light noble peppery presence and residual spicy phenols to dry it out. A nice, dry Saison.
