Gold in color with a little cloud and nice white head. Spice, grass, yeast and malt on the nose. Flavor is got a little bite up front with a nice malty yeasty taste. Some warmth on the finish with the alcohol, just enough to know its there. Very nice.

Light golden colour with a bit of a whiteish head. Not much of an aroma, flavour is light with a bit of pepper. Not too bad, not too notable.

MMM!!! How nice. A wonderful Saison with tons of malty goodness. Aroma is semi-sweet with a cloudy light red hue. Has a very nice medium head. Taste is smooth with a carbonated afterburn.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2008 Eh, not bad. Golden color, nicely formed head, aroma is very fruity. The taste is a lot heavier than the color would have one believe. Spicey and yeasty taste.

Light amber with a eggshell white head. Nice spicy smell of ginger, black pepper, citrus fruit. Med. body and smooth. Taste is first spicy sweet with ginger and citrus then a dry pepper, grainy flavor to finish. Mild but complex flavors here.Apr 01/2007

750ml bottle: This one pours a rich, golden color. There was just a hint of haze, and a bit of an off-white head to it. The aroma is very fragrant. Earthy, musty, yeasty and grassy. The taste is very good. Somewhat fruity, grassy, spicy, just a mixed bag working VERY well together. A very good Saison.

(750ml bottle) Sampled at Oakes 2007 Christmas party. Pours a frothy white medium head with a high carbonated body. Nose of funky yeast. Good tart flavour but nothing coming out from the decent nose.

Hazy dull beige. Thick head. Yeasty, duponty nose. Very yeasty. Some dust, malt-accented. Not especially mindblowing, didn’t capture my imagination.
