750 ml bottle shared by Bill. Pour is hazed golden with a two inch white head. Aroma is peppercorn, along with malt wheat, and a tangy sourness. Taste is vegetal, along with the very mildly tangy sourness and a nice earthiness. Palate is medium, bone dry. Perhaps a bit over spiced, but nice enough and easy to drink.

(750ml bottle via trade with Josh) opaque yellow with lasting white bubbles. Nose of tart fruits, pear and apple, floral, brett and pineapple. Taste of earth, florals, brett, tart lemon, nice and drinkable if not a bit perfumey.

Thanks to Nellie and thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is lemons and wheat. The flavor is yeast, lemons and wheat and is slightly tart. Very drinkable and refreshing. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

BMan1113VR (7820) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Bottle thanks to someone at Bobby’s tasting. Pours with a clear golden body and a white head. Aroma is grainy, phenolic, and sour. Taste is lightly sour, fruity and heavy brett phenolics. Lively bubbles with a dry mouthfeel.

Sourdough bread with lemon and peels. Nicely balanced, but not a great aroma.

after4ever (6059) - Brier, Washington, USA - AUG 14, 2010
750, capped and waxed. Thanks brian! Pours a cloudy bright gold with a dense and fizzy white head. Big sweet desserty lemon nose. Some white pepper in there but mostly a lemony tour de force. Creamy medium body with tons of lively fizz. Lemon, orange, and white pepper on the mid palate. Long white pepper and mineral finish.

dagimp (698) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2010
From a 750 into a snifter. No dates on bottle. Pours foggy straw color with a TON of white fluffy head. Head dissipates after a couple of minutes leaving no lacing. Aroma of bubblegum, hay, lime and funk. Mouthfeel is medium and frothy. A little to frothy for me but otherwise crisp and spot on. Taste is slightly bitter from the Brett, but not overly so; actually, milder than what I would have thought. Funk, bubblegum, dry flavor. Very nice saison, one of the better ones I’ve had.

pineypower (2479) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Pours a cloudy golden color with a light off white head. Aroma is of slight funky, some yeast, grass and some spice. Taste is complex, yeast, some grassy notes, light spices, some bready grain notes,earth and some light funky notes with a dry finish. Once again a great saison from McKenzie
