TBone (12988) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 5, 2009
Bottled 75cl (bought from GBBF). Slightly hazy yellow color, small white head. Fruity-hoppy, honeyish, elderberry aroma. Hoppy, flowery, light, but refreshing beer. Elderflower herbal touch. Long bitterness in the aftertaste. Nice summer drink, a bit unusually hopped Saison.

puzzl (3252) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 3, 2009
Bottled. Very horsy, kind of skunky (not in the normal, Corona way), a bit of salt... reminds me of a Gose, really. Lovely, full body, nice dry complexity, some salt and minerals, with a finish of caramel, beach, fresh air. Well made saison in the Dupont vein.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2009
750ml Bottle: Aroma of fruit, light yeast, slight hops, slight nectar, flowers, honey, and a hint of pepper. Poured amber/gold in color with a large, loose, fluffy, white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Flavor is lightly sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of honey, yeast, flowers, and grains. Light to medium body. Thin, slightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Honey, grain, and yeast finish.

absurdia (20) - BELGIUM - AUG 26, 2009
Bottle 75 cl (From next village - Jauche - Mini supermarket - Louis Delhaize) Deep cloudy sunny blond color. Explosion of fruity aroma: pear, honey, light fruity hops & grassy hops. Great first taste with the aromas around light fruits with a zip of bitterness. Medium bodied. Fresh beer, very nice.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2009
750ml from the MJBC. Pale golden pour with moderate yeast presence and a lively cream colored head. Fairly anonymous aroma in some sense, though there are hints of pear, yeast, and a hint of spice. Mouthfeel is nicely full, but there’s something a bit papery about the flavor. Very dry, and both fruit and yeast are there in the taste, but it gets really bland quickly. Kind of a disappointment.

Light lemon, dust, spice, yeast. Yellow, hazy thin head. Some lemon, yeast, dust,wheat, dusty finish. Not that interesting.

750, capped. thanks, dany! pours a murky toffeeish light amber with a frothy white head. nice lightly tarted yeasty wheatish nose. slight touches of lemon and grass. fizzy medium body, tangy orange and a biscuit note on the mid palate. very interesting, refreshing, and drinkable.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - AUG 13, 2009
Pure gold with a straw sheen. Dense crown of white foam adorns the glass and displays good retention. Phenolic and pungently hoppy aroma consists of lemon zest, dusty yeast, wood, plastic, hay, hopsack, and crackery malt. Hops are deeply herbal with a light note of resin, as well. Rambunctious carbonation expands as it meets the palate. Bone-dry with a vivacious plasticlike phenolic snap, upfront. Swift emergence of dry, crunchy, toasty Pils malt collides with the brisk phenols and augments the dryness as it gradually nestles more snugly into the palate. Malt steadily develops more weight-lending toasty richness along the way before yielding to a soft and flavorsome hop burst echoed by an equally assertive aspirin-tinged bitterness reminiscent of resin and citrus peel. Dazzling contrast between the luminous peach succulence, starker phenols and persistent malt crackle. Deceptively simple finish exhibits exemplary focus and well-balanced flavors of feisty phenols, floral and herbal (jasmine, aniseed) hops and crackery Pils malt. Citric bitterness lingers as phenols occasionally reappear in the tasty belches. Ahh…sit back, slowly savor and let this delicate beer come to you. A superlative effort. Should be fun watching this up-and-coming brewery evolve, and see what they have hiding up their sleeves.
