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.

Muggus69 (1362) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 15, 2015
375mL bottle from Slowbeer. Enjoy Before Nov 2015 Looks the goods - pouring a big white foam atop a hazy bright orange-straw body. Plenty to enjoy on the nose; white bread dough & crust, white pepper, hay, lemon peel, unripe apricot, hint of minerals. Reasonably lively carbonation, body is full, some creaminess about it, with a touch of acidity. Quite intense on the body; grass, grapefruit rind, cereal malts, dried leafy herbs, lots of pepper & spice, doughy yeast, with a lingering earthiness. Lifted bitterness, long finish. Well crafted Saison - ticks all the boxes, can’t ask for much more really.

anstei (152) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 5, 2015
375ml bottle from Warners at the Bay. Pours golden yellow with a big head that sticks. Citric nose, just the right amount if sourness. Taste is... Good, but hard to describe in what way. The perfect beer for a hot day like this one anyway.

Shark_Pants (349) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2015
Pours a lovely straw gold with nice big fluffy head and still streams of bubbles cascading from the dimples at the bottom of my De Struise glass 5 min after the pour. The aroma has a fantastic barnyard funk expected of a good saison, along with coriander and nice light honey on fresh bread. The taste initially has the light honey hinted at by the aroma, then the funky yeast kicks in, followed by a welcome light tart astringency before the long crisp, malty dry finish takes over. Light to medium bodied and highly refreshing. I?ve had this a number of times and it?s not just hands down the best saison in Australia but definitely world class. Absolutely sensational.

bursprak (931) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2015
Bottle from a trade. Hazy light yellow pour with a frothy head. Nose has apples, yeast, grains, spice and some peppery notes. Taste is smooth with a light bitterness, yeast, black pepper and some lemon juice. Pretty lively carbonation.

orange_3084 (127) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 2, 2015
Pours hazy golden orange with thick pillowy white head. Aroma of zesty oranges, lemon, breadiness and spice. The body is effervescent and the taste is dry and refreshing. There is a little alcohol warmth in the finish. Great beer.

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!

Rosslew (288) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 8, 2014
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 (4435) - 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.
