beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2007
The pour reveals a murky orange color with a medium white head. Strong aroma of allspice, nutmeg and yeast, interesting. The flavor has a balanced and very pleasant blend of allspice, nutmeg, fruits and yeast. The body has a light to medium thickness with a creamy texture and lively carvonation. This obscure beer was a nice surprise, very interesting.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Pours a super foamy peaches and cream head atop a hazy tan body that looks vigorously active with carbonation. The nose seems rather thick and soapy with Belgian notes having difficulty in making their way through the dense thicket.Wafer thin body with unsubstantial malting and touches of soapy esters. Hay and hop twang finish.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 21, 2009
Bottled. Very cloudy yellow pour. The aroma is quite nice with dry oregano, light lemon, and fresh dough. Grassy and fresh body, with a kind of cheesy, wet, farmhouse overall note. Great dryness.

CanIHave4Beers (3185) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - NOV 15, 2011
Pours a lightly hazy orange color, fairly clear at the start of the 750, muddy and cloudy as can be towards the end (and yes I did pour carefully throughout). The head is a medium size, white in color & leaves a good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is malty and has a lot of perfumey floral pungency that does settle down a bit in time. The beer displays a nice light barnyard aroma and some graininess.

The flavor has a nice balance of lightly toasty malt and hop flavor both earthy and leafy. The beer is nicely bitter and has a lot of bright fruitiness. The beer has mild grassy flavors and is generally dry throughout but not without some subdued malty sweetness.

This is really very enjoyable, I always get so suspicious when my Biere de Garde or Saison are as amber hued as this is, but more times than the old world examples of this are fantastic and this is no exception. I will say though that at first it took me a minute to catch up with what was going on here but by the time the bottle was finished I just wanted another.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2009
Bottle: Hazy golden with a dense white head that retains well. Dry minerally phenols in the aroma with a touch of biscuity pale malt in the background and an herbal/floral component. Nice dry flavor with only a subtle touch of pale malt sweetness- bready body with again a minerally phenolic character. The back displays some herbal hop characteristics (reminiscent of chamomile). Nice and dry.

Ferris (3027) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle - Perfumy, rose, orange and some weird artificial sweetness. Cloudy yellow with a rich white head. Honey and light grain with that floral sweetness. Nice and floral, weird but fun.
