eManu (491) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2010
From draft, hazy gold color with off white head. Aroma is wonderful, packed with fruits and flowers. Flavors is like a bouquet of fruit salad, but well balanced, lots of great flavors with some honey. Nice and refreshing. Taste so good you want more.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAR 5, 2010
0.75 l bottle at Old Bricks Inn, Jyväskylä. Deep golden color with persistent head. Sweetish, tart, flowery, grassy, herbal and peppery aroma with berryish fruitiness. Very summery aroma. Dry flavor with spicy bitterness, honey, herbs and some fruity berryish notes. Highly carbonated. Pleasant enough, quite typical belgian ale.

hopscotch (10083) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2010
Bottle… Pours clear and deeply golden with a small, wispy, white head. Great retention. The bouquet is bready, doughy and very lightly spicy. Light to medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. The flavor is mostly bready and very well-bittered with just a touch of sorghum. Crisp, moderately bitter, dry finish. Now, this is a fckng saison; the way God intended saisons to be.

Jblauvs (1357) - Chester, Vermont, USA - FEB 23, 2010
Hazy golden pour with a white head. Aroma is herbal, some grassiness and some light nuttiness. Very enticing. Flavor is light and playful, medium carbonation, a tiny bit of tang on the end of some nice grassy, leafy tones and some savory herbs, rosemary and thyme. Delightful

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - FEB 21, 2010
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.

GodOfThunder (1248) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 21, 2010
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.

alagnak (467) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2010
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 (5581) - 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.
