mullet (849) - Melbourne, - FEB 23, 2012
Seriously impressive packaging (though I’d prefer something more environmentally friendly!) for an impressive beer. Distinctly coconutty phenolics just like a Bocq beer which isn’t all that different to the phenol profile in Dupont. (I thought bluebetty’s comment about it being more like a tripel a bit odd before tasting it, but it’s spot on with respect to the phenolics. Not that I have a problem with it.) Authentically Belgian malt flavour, with a touch of sweetness but handled well. Subtle tropical esters with some orange juice, at a level more in line with good Belgian saisons than most Aussie attempts. Finishes extremely dry with a hint of anise, not that bitter. I’d like more hop throughout, but otherwise this is a seriously rare bird - an Australian beer that I’d probably pick as Belgian if tasting blind. Impressive stuff, I’ll definitely be on the lookout for new (hopefully hoppier!) batches.

GothGargoyle (1957) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 24, 2016
Yellow with a large fluffy white head. Aroma is dried pear, summer fruits, hint of spice. Medium bodied, fruity on the palate with a hint of spice on the finish. Taste is dried summer fruits, pear, hint of honey.

Something very different to what I’ve ever tried before. Has a real funky aroma and flavour. Not sure if I’d want to drink it that often, but something worth trying.

500ml bottle. Poured into a large wine glass. Colby cheese and prosciutto to accompany. First ever Saison. Didn’t have the funky smell I had been led to believe a saison would have, in fact aroma in general was less than expected. Colour was a spectacular orange yellow with a lively foam. Didn’t see many bubbles streaming up the glass. As it was a 500ml bottle, this was poured in two goes. First glass was pretty clear with minimal haze. Second pour, I went a little too far and picked up some of the sediment / lees which obviously clouded the beer. Taste - light but still plenty of flavour. Not fruity like a english pub ale or citrus like a pale ale - but still managed to portray fruit of another kind - not apple or pear but light like that and only subtlely. Nice on the palate, lingered but very crisp and refreshing. Could imagine having this at lunch after a hard day in the field and feeling refreshed. Despite the alcohol level it felt and tasted much lighter. Not my favourite style of beer, but still really nice and suited to the right conditions. Keen to try more in this style.

willisread (1611) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 3, 2015
375 ml bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a hazy yellow gold with a nice soapy head that lingers. Good saison yeast nose with some light lemon, apple, pear and clove that come out. Good carbonation with a lot of floral honey sweetness. A little too sweet for me, but still a nice effort. Sweet and dry finish.

RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 16, 2015
750 ml bottle. High carbonation and massive white head. The aroma and flavour is mild, not so funky for a saison. I have a cold right now so it might just be me. Dry finish with some alcohol warmth.

j12601 (8700) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle at Max & Jess’s Taco Party! Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Musk and yeast on the nose, a soft bit of citrus. Medium bodied, spicy citrus, tart and bright. Musk and yeast into the finish.

ANZUShophunter (207) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2015
From 500 mL bottle in tulip glass. High CO2 levels gave significant head and made pouring difficult. Probably muted the aroma a bit but picked up a hint from the Saison yeast. Bright golden colour and not as tart or spicy as I’d expected. Still a nice range of flavours and enjoyable to drink.

LesArgen (282) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2015
A prince among beers. It looks beautiful, all yellow and cloudy, with every fruit under the sun mixing together to form a delicious sweet aroma - pear, lemon, cherry, banana, raisins, orange...it goes on. When tasted, the sweetness is balanced with some citrus hops and pepper, making it disappear before you know it’s finished. A ripper

Tap @ Bitter Phew - pours hazy yellow. Malty, hay, spice aroma. Cleansing dry taste with slight astringent note. Medium palate.
