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.

375ml bottle at Matt’s. Pours a hazy blond with a white head. Aroma and taste are hoppy, slightly flowery, some mead and bread notes. Hoppy bitterness, flowery aftertste. Good one.

fiulijn (18442) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2016
Tasting at Matt’s, batch LS230088, bb July 2016
Hazy blond color. Penetrating aroma, a lot of strong honey (eucalyptus, linden), and some spicy yeast, perfumy candlewax; original. Too much carbonation, probably too much bottle refermentation, and the mouthfeel is very dry; spicy character, strong, and woody final.
A bit chaotic, but interesting.

mcberko (13016) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2016
375mL bottle, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out rustic farmhouse notes, light sheep / horse blanket, and dry biscuity notes. Flavour is complex and well-balanced, with rustic farmhouse notes, a touch of funk, and a dry biscuity finish. Really nicely constructed. Complex and authentic. Excellent.

wrlangin (122) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2016
500 ml bottle from CRU in Brisbane. Pours dark amber with mild, soft fermentation that dissipates quickly. Mild aroma of fruit. Taste is malt and fruit with a hint of sourness. Very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mrjez (380) - Osaka, JAPAN - FEB 26, 2016
Pours gold with a lot of carbonation bubbles, sediment, and a finger of white foam with great lacing. Nice aroma of champagne grape, yeast and funk. Taste follows suit, big champagne sour note, lemony elements, lovely barnyard tinge, and a big peppery finish. It’s quite a big beer in feel, gentle carbonation, slightly puckery. Excellently executed saison.

M_Sack (598) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 15, 2016
Bottle. Light hazy gold, frothy white head. Delicious aromas of pineapple, banana, stone fruit, Granny Smith apple and a touch of funk. Similar flavours of apple and stone fruit, but sourness, pepper, clove and alcohol also creep in. High carbonation. Quality beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
