beernbourbon (1477) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 19, 2010
Bottle. Pour is hazy straw color with a thin white head. Looks like cloudy lager. Aroma is light lemon, light hay, light coriander, light champagne, and light funk. I am stressing light because this is a pretty subtle beer. There is an aroma or a quality to this beer that I cannot put into words, but I like it. The flavor is also subtle with notes of hay, light black pepper, light yeast, and a light funk. This beer is subtle, smooth, and really drinkable. Tasty.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JUL 18, 2010
75cl bottle. Pretty clear blond at first pour, topped by a medium white head that leaves some lace. the aroma is floral with some apricot, peach, and spicy hops that make a moderate appearance. The flavor is lightly tart with some bubblegum esters. lightly sweet with a grainy malt flavor, and finishes with a medium-bitter, herbal/floral hoppy side. Light on the palate and decently carbonated, though maybe not quite enough. Good, but not the amazing saison that I was expecting.

On draft at Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Hazy golden colored, white head. Spicy aroma, some hay, citrus. Bitter flavor, spices. Fair saison.

rudolf (2353) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Bottle, shared with Tim & Jacob. Pretty hazy orange, white head. Nose is yeast, clay-like malt, some apple & unripe plum. Flavor is yeast, toasty malt, relatively strong bitterness & a little plastic. Somewhat astringent & appley/fruity finish.

caesar (6297) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2010
Tap @ Beer Temple. Slight hazy golden yellow color, short head. Aroma of hay, barnyard, some citrus, bit cat pee. Taste is slight sweet, bit sourish, bit dry, some bitter. Decent stuff, but once you have the thought of cat pee in your mind, it gets a bit odd to drink.

robinvboyer (3876) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2010
Now this is a saison! Great golden slightly murky pour. Loads of citrus, on the noe with that great style busting pepperiness you expect from a great saison. The carbonation is spot on, and the finish is soft, but slightly bitter, and there is a little bit of funk for good measure.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2010
750ml bottle. Pours a clear, shiny golden hue with a proud head of smooth, off-white froth. Settling slowly to a moderately ramped ring with a thin skin at the center, the head leaves behind a soapy wash that dries to round, wet flares and spots of lacing. The nose is nicely balanced, showing a malt base of clean, lightly honey-glazed cereal that is countered with dry, spicy yeast, peppery grass hops, and perfumy flowers. A hint of graham cracker comes to mind as well. Similarly, flavors show semi-sweet cereal and dessert cracker malts, perhaps a touch of caramel, all balanced by sharp, dry spices, merigold flowers, white pepper, and bitter grasses. The bitterness actually begins to assert dominance on the back end, as the malts dry out and some of the honey character fades away. Moderate in body, carbonation is fine but lively, tickling the tongue and drying the roof of the mouth quite extensively. Overall, it’s a very nice, mostly dry, spicy saison. Good stuff.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2010
Bottle, Night of the Funk Cheval Blanc. Aroma has a fine yeast, wheat and pitfruit, clear yellow, cute little white head. Flavour is mild fruit, plums and pears mostly, some underlying malt. Light bodied, balanced, dry. Very good offering.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2010
750ml Bottle Pours a hazy dark gold and only faint head and lacing. A bit caught off guard by the powerful floral aromas. perfume like, some coriander and lavender as well. Quite a bouqet actually. Flavor is mildly funky with a slight sourness in the finish. Body is medium carbonation and a slight puckering dry finish. Overall not a bad brew and an interesting one as well
