caesar (6685) - 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.

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

CamdenD (1181) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 5, 2010
This is a beautiful beer. A bit "Americanized" in its hop-forward nose and relatively sour aftertaste, but this beer is all class. It’s refreshing and not a "double" like some "newer" saisons. Without being an expert on this style, I would call this one wonderfully typical yet individual.

brainlair (236) - Maryland, USA - JUL 4, 2010
From a growler obtained at Capone’s in PA. Pours a transparent golden yellow. Aroma has lots of clean floral citrus hops, a touch of yeast. Flavor is very light and dry, with delicious citrus hops, brett, and a touch of cereal. Lots of light fruit, and pleasant bitterness. Good mouthfeel, hoppy bitter finish.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 3, 2010
Draft, SIB. Golden, hazy, with a white head. Aroma is fruity, with white grape and apple, spice, hay, gentle wheat notes. Tastes matches the aroma pretty close, with pleasant fruitiness and lemon thrown in, very light yeasty spice, earth, floral notes, and hay as it finishes. A rather straightforward saison, but I’d love to try it again with a fresher palate.

hirigalzkar (2955) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2010
Bottle. Pours golden yellow with a small white head. Fresh, lightly spiced, american citrus hoppy aroma. An extremley drinkable beer, fresh of citrus hops, light earthiness. Notes of pineapple, sweet raspberries and melon. Smooth and well balanced. Quite thin bodied, but that’s a fact that makes it even more drinkable. I could drink this beer a whole night without getting bored.
