Lubiere (9923) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2008
A reddish amber ale with a thin off white head. A nice sweet candy sugar aroma with orange peels, hops and warming alcohol. In mouth, a rather peaty sweet malt with curacao, licorice, light herbal hops, oily mouthfeel. Medium bodied. Tasted late Dec. 2006.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 9, 2008
This is seriously good stuff. Reminiscent of marmalade spread over sweet dark wheat bread. I really enjoy the hop profile that is in this BSA as well. It is extremely well balanced, creamy mouthfeel but still rich and smooth.

bhensonb (10977) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 25, 2008
750 ml bottle from Monument in Concord, CA. Musty, bready, yeasty, dark fruity, floral aromas. Seriously. Near mahogany color with small particles and a fair, creamy beige head. Full bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet malt, with floral hop and a lot of mysterious things. Very smooth. Finish is well balanced, and not very sweet. It’s just delicious. It’s really, really excellent. Brilliant, even.

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 23, 2008
[bottle] Poured caramel apple brown with a smallish off white head. Aroma is sweet with candi sugar, and some floral hops. Flavor is fairly sweet with some bready yeast. Medium-light mouthfeel. Very good stuff.

JK (4416) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 20, 2008
more of a saison than a Belgian strong, it doesn’t have enough alcohol to be the latter, and has spices and yeast like the former. Yeast aroma. Sweet flavor with some malt, grass, and wildflowers. I enjoyed this quite a bit.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2008
Not bad. Belgian yeast on the aroma with a light spice. More belgian yeast and spices in the body but a little cardboard. Copper colored with almost no head.

Stine (1547) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2008
Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Murky, rusty hued pour. Aroma of sour cherry, rotten banana, and pleasant aromatic florals. Wild and outdoorsy, with funky compost and old pineapple in the background. Spicy, soft flavor gives a rich canvas of brown spice over which layers of saison-like flavors of honey, wildflowers, pine, and cotton candy mingle and settle; deep yeasts lend a lot of dusty, rich, old character. Sprightly and festive. Mineral effects noticeable throughout. Smooth, medium to full body, which is very fruity but never sugary, and quite lively. A lovely Christmas ale for a subtle balance of complexity and refreshment; for winter or summer, awesome.

badgerben (4395) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2008
Dark copper color with no head. Light yeasty aroma. Noble hop taste. Some malt and a slightly bitter finish. Almost like a strong, slightly yeasty Pils.

AgentSteve (1614) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - APR 17, 2008
Deep amber pour with a thin off white head. Nose is interesting, with a sweet hoppiness to it. Flavor is clean and bitter from the hop influence with a touch of dried frui. Interesting beer.
