garthicus (2661) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 2, 2010
Thanks to HogTownHarry for sharing. Appearance: Murky brown, small but lasting white head. Aroma: Sweet hops, banana, cream with some vanilla and lemon too, very nice. Flavour: Slight mango, hops, sweet up front but with a nice long dry malt finish.. nice hops mixed in the finish too. Good indeed.

Glouglouburp (5977) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2009
In short: An crisp and sharp flowery and fruity Saison with a truly original character. Wow!
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed when 6 to 12 months of age.
The look: Cloudy dark golden body topped by a medium off-white head with medium retention
In long: Nose of bubble gum, garden flowers and wild berries and wild yeast. Taste of unsweetened red liquorice hard-candies, grapefruits, red grapes, tangerines, toasted biscuits, herbal spices. A lot of flowery hops. Finish is a little dry, some flower juice, a light red grapes tartness/sourness, medium astringency and with only a mild bitterness. Overall very sharp. Not very wild or barnyard but still manages to have a Saison character. Lively carbonation and mouthfeel. There is something different about this beer that I cannot put into word other than to say that it is really original. Quality-wise this is almost to the level of their fantastic Saison IV, but this one is a lot less “standard”. This new brewery is simply amazing. And I have more of it, incredible, me, yes me, I have some good cense.

bierkoning (10000) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2009
Bottled. Brown color. Plums and licorice in the aroma. Medium to full bodied. Toffee, milk chocolate and licorice in the malty flavor. Plums. Fairly long finish. Not bad.

jercraigs (7691) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2009
2009-11-27. Hazy amber body with modest white head and lace. 3+ Lovely aroma! Citrus melange (clementines, grapefruit, other) and light malts. Flavour is a lightly muted version of the aroma. Bitter citrus hops up front is briefly astringent, moderate bitterness throughout, mild malt. 7+ Average palate is just a touch lighter than my preference. Very nice. Bottle shared by HogTownHarry.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2009
Bottled at pre-Zythos bash, Alvinne, March 2009 (thanks due to JoeinUccle I think for sharing). Cloudy amber colour. Nice tart citrus bite. Some distinct aromatic, floral US hop character. I was looking forward to trying a new beer from this quite young but very accomplished brewery and I was not disappointed. Really tasty if hardly a traditional saison.

Borresteijn (4618) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2009
On tap at 3rd Brugs BF. Hazy dark amber colour, dense yellow/orange head. Aroma of grapefruit, mango, light laurel, blood oranges. Flavour is very fruity, as above, some laurel, caramel, grapefruit bitter finish. Medium bodied. Nice.

FatPhil (9258) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 25, 2009
750ml bottle (Kaisla, Helsinki, Big bottle weeks)
Deep hazy orange, small frothy head. Huge, quite pungent hoppy aroma. Soft carbonation. Some sweet caramel aroma too. Palate a bit sacchariney, and bitter. Plenty of roasted malt, and very raw hops. A touch of alcohol occasionally. Some grapefruity bitterness, and other sweet citrus tones. Finish has some sherbetty citrus. Saccharine comes through more latter, coats the mouth a bit. I think they tried a bit hard wit this one.

Rastacouere (6125) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 26, 2009
Veiled amber covered by a large, healthy foam loaded with Belgian lacing. Bright lemon zest hops are brought to our attention together with perfumey/flowery aspects and a rye-like spiciness. In mouth, the pils malts make up a crisp mouthfeel, delivering plenty of freshness as vigorous carbonation cleanses the palate between the sips. Ginger and lime seem to conclude the show. Brightness all over the place. A true performer this beer as my expectations were far inferior to the regular Saison. The yeast shows authentic Belgian character, high, fitting attenuation (dry and almost nutty), a fitting mineral palate and a remarkably bright hop profile considering its origins.
