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.

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!

A fine example of the style! Beautiful light golden colour, tight white head, farmyard and zest aromas, tart, dry, a little malty, lemony bitterness and a long finish. Great food beer!

Very spicy with vinegar aroma. Taste of lemon. Does give impression of Belgian tripple. Has a sour taste but not unpleasant. Bit bubbly on the tongue. Need to let settle in the glass. Good after dinner beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BlackHaddock (4150) - 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.

HopRedHead (393) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 21, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a golden straw colour with a lively 3cm of head, gradually fading. Sour and zesty barnyard aromas arise with a touch of wood. Tart flavours with mentioned sour and zest, also a banana aftertaste. Also a minimal toast malt in there somewhere. Nice full carbonation and good on the palate.

mkel07 (3731) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 8, 2012
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.

barakihunter (187) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 20, 2012
Excellent clear and sparkling appearance with a light, sweet, simple aroma. Taste is a tad bit of citrus, lots of floral and moves to honey. Palate is musky with some yeasty flavours. Overall, a very nice saison.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2014 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
