COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American hopped saison.

Editor’s note: The 2009+ versions are spiked with Brett at bottling. Bottles from 2009 are marked as such, although 2010 and 2011 bottles appear to not note the vintage on the label, but might be printed on the neck or base.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2010
Draft at Medici-Normal. Pours a mostly clear gold with fluffy head. Nose is estery bananas, light lemon notes and dusty earthiness. On taste, much more subdued with some nice bitter notes and a helping of bananas. Reasonably spicy with white pepper notes. Body is a bit thin and the taste is a bit shallow. Still, super drinkable.

(750ml bottle 2009 vintage thanks to bu11zeye) clear medium yellow, with a lasting ring of white bubbles. Nose of tart cherry, cinnamon, wood, juniper, and herbal. Taste is also herbal, wet wood, spicy, currants with a spicy finish and oily body. Nice saison.

atze (14) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 24, 2010
Bottle (75 cl), Hazy gold, topped by a small white head. Spicy aroma, laced with the sourness of Brett. Taste is mostly sweet, some sourness and a bit of yeast. Not very special, though not bad either.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Serving: Bottle at Savor.
It pours a light gold color with a small foamy white head. The nose is slightly sour (it’s the Brett!), fruity, and slightly citric. The taste is dusty and yeasty with slight hay and green grass notes with lemon and other citrus flavors on the back end. Light in body with medium to high carbonation leading to a lingering bitter finish. A very solid saison.

beerbill (3564) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUN 13, 2010
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a moderate linen white head that lasted through the first third of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma that is more sour than funk with notes of lemon and apple. The flavor is very similar and again is more sour than funk with the apple more prevalent along with some lemon. Mouthfeel is a bit prickly. Something out of the ordinary and enjoyable.

750ml into challice. Pours a transparent straw yellow with little to no head. Aroma is a barnyard, some spices and a little bit of funk. Mouth feel is thin with moderate carbonation (surprising!). Taste is yeasty, spicy, with a hint of lemon. Great saison.

peter (445) - Normal, Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2010
Draft. Thin head and the cloudy appearance of a wheat bear. Nose has a slight tinge of funk on it but is mainly sweet with a honey character. Taste follows suit, a bit like a wit. Great session for watching the Blackhawks.

Pours a hazy golden yellow colour, with a little white head and lacing. Smells of grass, citrus, kinda barnyard hay. Tastes like it smells. Nice beer!
