Glouglouburp (5934) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2007 Cloudy glowing orange body topped by a short-lived medium white head. Leafy coriander, herbal spices and lots of freshly squeezed citrus fruits in a yeast dough. Very yeasty beer with a doughy mouthfeel, maybe even a little floury. Feeling of drinking an orange muffin. Finish is orange flavour with some leafy hops. Another good offering from Hopfenstark. I can drink that stuff until the taxi suddenly takes on colorful aspect, makes loud noise and has a spinning light on top of it.

Gription79 (2227) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Poured from a 750ml bottle. This is a very yeast driven saison. Fruity, banana, some rustic yeasty farmhouse qualities. A good beer, but not that great of a saison.

Sammy (8348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2011 Modiale 2007. A little white head on cloudy orange. Appealing aroma of spice and yeast. Taste is great, fortified with rye, a good saison in a great style. Sourness in the finish. Good medium plus mouthfee. Lace in the glass. Refreshing. Had it again in 2008 and was not as enticing. Had it by bottle in 2011 and very ordinary farmhouse.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 15, 2010
Draught at Churchkey, recommendation from Sam. Clear orange, white edge head, good lacing. Aroma is sour orange peel and bubblegum, very nice. Taste is disappointing, sour start followed by unbalanced sweet bitterness. Oh well.

Sampled at Max’s in Baltimore. Pours a transparent orange amber with very little cloudy white head. Aroma is floral, herbal, sugary. Flavor is sweet, malty, oranges, tropical fruits, passion fruit. Finish is full bodied, sweet.

JulienHuxley (2852) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2010
On tap at brewpub’s anniversary. Hazy yellow pour, lots of frothy white head. Aroma is quite tart and lemony, a bit of grain and saison yeast. Taste is lemony, some alcohol quite straightforward. Palate is a little slick for the style, I was expecting more from this beer.
