notalush (5222) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 31, 2009
My final rating of 2009 - I figured I would go out on my favorite style - lively pour - hazy - honey-colored - thick, fairly well-sustained head - tangy grapefruit hits the nose first - a decent dose of hops for the style - light yeast, wildflower honey, a mild, rustic earthiness - quite spicy, peppery, and hoppy flavor - fairly dry and flinty, with the exception of a slight honey sweetness on the tail end, that quickly gets swallowed back up by the hops - some floral notes far in the back, a touch of dried herbs - wheat and toasted grains - some pils malt character in the finish - quite bitter, but the dryness really makes it work - it’s no Dupont, but it’s might good.

BVery (7442) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Bottle (small sample). Light orange pour, white head. Citrus and floral hop nose, "clean" tasting for a Saison. A hopped-up Saison - pretty cool.

25.4 oz bottle. Hazy gold with a white froth then a coating. Nose is honey, lemon and pineapple. Medium light with sparkling carb and a creamy finish. Taste is subtly sweet pear, dough and lemon peel. Wonderful saison; spot on.

beerguy101 (5319) - Newark, California, USA - NOV 29, 2009
Sampled 10/26/2009. This saison pours a medium orange gold color from a 750ml bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, orange and orange peel. Bright and yeasty. A medium bodied saison. The malts are fruity and sweet, nice citrusy and flavor flavors. Crisp, clean and light, yet has a nice full mouthfeel. Nice dry finish. This beer went very well with the Thanksgiving meal. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

yespr (33803) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2009
75 cL bottle, courtesy of fonefan. Pours hazy orange with a huge white head, slowly collapsing. Aroma is distinct citrus and floral hoppy with a light yeasty note. Smooth - almost velvet like mouthfeel and hops fruity flavours mixed with mellow yeasty notes. Smooth fruity and bitter flavoured finish yet with a light sweet impression into the far finish.

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 23, 2009
Bouteille de 750 ml, lors du Bières et Bouffe IV. Arômes de levure citronnée et de céréales. Robe blonde très pâle et trouble, effervescence active. Très citronnée et veloutée en bouche, on retrouve également une touche de houblon herbal. Finale très sèche, légèrement acide et moyennement amère. Une excellente saison, tout à fait dans le style.

thornecb (4697) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 18, 2009
Pours deep gold into a tulip. Fluffy white conglomerate head recedes leaving spotted sheets. Dusty lemon and caramel aromas. Crisp with upfront sharp fruity hops and marshmallow turning back to a lasting bitter finish.

omhper (20568) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 17, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2009 Bottled at Belgobaren, Stockholm. Cloudy golden, small head. Rich hoppy grapefruit aroma. Dry and fairly light bodied. Minerally with slight almondy yeast character. Freshly hoppy with grapefruit and seville orange marmlade. Finishes with medium bitterness. Belgian style yeast and attentuation and Amercan style hops is a winning concept! This is good, and very drinkable.
