BlackHaddock (3760) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2014
0.75cl Bottle: brought to the Belgian Beer Board Pre-Brugge beer festival bottle exchange by Filip, thanks mate. An Australian Saison, what a surprise to see this in Brugge. I loved it. Misty golden body (it had been poured a few times before I got my hands on it) with a white covering, I managed to get just under a half-pint into my glass: didn’t want to appear greedy did I? Yeasty farmyard; proper Saison smells in other words. Sour yeastiness in the mouth along with a sweet undertone that blend together giving a truly memorable experience and a wonderful taste. So different to anything else at the bottle swap: some cracking brews, but this and the Ommegang 3 Philosophers really stood out for me in their classiness, even though they are worlds apart in styles.

375ml bottle. Very frothy with a mountainous head of compact white foam above a hazy apricot coloured beer. Tart sour aroma with a flavour to match. Very lively and zingy in the mouth and it certainly wakes up the taste buds.

maneliquor (3103) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 21, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Loving the label. Cool seeing this style come out of Australia more regularly now as well. The nose is very reminiscent of that familiar yeasty note which comes from Dupont, but again, like bluebetty said, reminds me a lot of a tripel on the nose and in the taste. A touch of sweetness works well in this. A little hoppier than the traditional belgian counterpart but its nice. Spices and lemon morange mingle nicely. Very refreshing with a spot on dry finish. Great work

Pale yellowy straw body with decent head. Light /medium body, light pepper, refreshing , a touch of cloves, fairly standard and not extraordinary but very very drinkable.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2014 [12/11] Not clear where this is actually brewed, but I’d guess somewhere near Northcote. Bottle. Straw-coloured with a large white head. Aroma of sweet and some tart apples, earth, vanilla, cloves, slight blue cheese. Taste is moderately sweet with vibrant spices Peaches, apples, light sugars, coriander, vanilla, cardamon pods, white pepper. The taste is less rustic than suggested by the aroma. Finish is dry and spicy. Perhaps a little overcarbonated. Good. [3.6]

[6/12] Second batch. Modest head. Lower carbonation, a little less sweetness. Hard to say whether there’s there’s more tartness or just that it stands out more. Dry with spicy bitterness at the finish. Really convincing stuff. [3.8]

[3/14] Batch 131201. Gold with an inch of white head that hangs in awhile. Aroma of hay, apples, cardamon, cloves, nectarines. Doughy and (too) cheesy yeast notes. A mix of sweet, tart and bitter with again the tartness a little more prominent. Lingering floral and spicy notes.

Davros (1939) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2012
Pours straw yellow with a large, white head. Nose shows citrus, banana, and spicy phenols. Pretty spot-on for the style. Flavours include soft light malt, hay notes and soft spicy hops, all rounded off by a dry, slightly tart finish. Carbonation is a bit full-on.

Bottle at Atticus Finch. Exceptional, very creamy, and with great balance. Aromas of butter and vanilla. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and long length. Palate is creamy, with a medium-to-full body. Yellow, cloudy, with a massive frothy head.

Pours a cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, yeast and spices. Taste is medium sweet leading to a yeasty finish. Damn good!

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 8, 2012
Bottle thanks to hawthorne00. Pours very light straw. Somehwat cloudy. Huge billowy bright white head. Aromas of light bready malt with lots of spiciness and plenty oif fruit showng through. Plenty of yeast character as well. Flavours are quite sweet with the yeast character coming through on the finish. LIngering slight sour finish. Medium mouthfeel with lots of carbonic bite. Reminds me more of a triple than a saison especially with the yeast character.
