Bottle. Hazy amber/gold, white carbonation. Rotten vegetation overtones. Other than that, a fruity, lightly caramel-ly, spicy, grassy, earthy saison. Medium body, well carbonated, dry. Need to retry.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2010 Thanks to Solan. Aroma has a little apple, dried grass and butterscotch. Flavor has a little more butterscotch and dried grasses. Not bad, but something might not be right. Re-Rate: Draft at Moeder Lambic Fontinas. Much better. Fairly standard saison, but not lacking in any area. Good stuff.

750. Firstw whiff is freshly turned earth with a very herbaceous background...a lot like potting some fresh herbs. taste is forefront the earthiness and slight toasted malt with straw and hay, with a faint citric/floral spiciness. Further into the glass, the yeast takes center with the same herbaceousness as the nose, a little mint, white pepper - maybe a touch of coriander, but not prominent and light-handed. Sparkly carbonation. Really a nice beer with a light feel. Great with cheese and crackers.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 16, 2010
750 ml bottle at Maxs- I think Eric or John shared this? Pours a nice light copper orange with a foamy sticky white head. Aroma is big toasty malts, biscuit, bready pils, some doughy wheat, orange zest, lemongrass, spicy peppery phenols, good clean Belgian yeast, earth and nice grassy floral hops. Good big bready malt backbone in the flavor without getting too sweet- light salt-spray, grassy and light citrus hops, some lemon and earth as well- good phenolic peppery hints, and the finish is fairly dry and very clean- very nice saison. Cant wait to try to V!

egajdzis (5515) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2010
Lightly hazy golden color with a small white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus fruits, honey, and light spices. Taste of citrus, toffee, honey, orange peel, light coriander. Just seemed a bit sweet for my tastes.

Pours hazy golden with a thin fully receding off white head. Notes of citric, herbal hops, citric, orange peel, ginger, chamomile, and mango. Medium to full bodied with lively carbonation.

75 cl bottle @ brugsch beertje, nice yellow colour with beautiful white, foamy and stable head. Smell: yeasty and hoppy. Taste: spicy, yeasty, hoppy, some sweetness within. Orange peel, coriander and fruity. Nice saison!

thegreenrooster (3455) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Pour is a blond with a large pillowy white head. Aroma is of pale malts, a nice citrusy hops and some pepper. Flavor is again agressive up front hops with some raisons and a pleasant sweet malt after the swallow. No real brett in this one as the hops are the main focus here. A west coast saison? Still this is a pretty nice beer and a different take on the style.

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.

Bottle (small sample). Light orange pour, white head. Citrus and floral hop nose, "clean" tasting for a Saison. A hopped-up Saison - pretty cool.
