Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Bottle shared by a friend. Pours a cloudy orange-gold color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet fruit and biscuit malt. Medium body with flavors of tropical fruit, yeast and bready malt. The finish is fruity with a pineapple aftertaste. Decent overall.

Light haze on this amber beer, short white head. Crispy dry palate. A little dry malt. Okay fruits, a little tangy - somewhat lost among the minerals and dryness. Okay.

December 28th, 2011 - Now here are some flavors I haven’t seen packed into a bottle of beer before. It feels weird to be tilting back tropical flavors in the space between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, but the unique tastes of this beer do it justice, making it a drink for year-round good cheer. A clear beer with a healthy golden glow and heavy carbonation, the Prickly Passion Saison is dressed for summer and spring. Its perfume of choice is light and sweet and even puffed, marked by bubble gum, lingonberry, and of course, the rich but fruity creaminess of braised pear. The flavor features more sweet apple and light saison grains on an incredibly delicate palate. This beer feels "fragile", almost so much that the body is flat. Pear appears in the taste too, but it is much stickier and borders on cloying. The fruitier and less candied pear like in the aroma appears in the long aftertaste, where it adds layers of cotton candy and jasmine flowers. In other words, this beer blossoms after the sip is done and is worth patient sipping for full appreciation.

Ral. rare beer fest. Not a big saison fan but I needed a change of pace. Too sweet/sugary for my taste but thats coming after BBL beers. Might not be a fair shake of the beer but my first impression.

Bottle shared by Sumner. Thanks man. The beer is clear and golden orange hued with a small head that fades rapidly. The aroma offers dank hops, earth, fruit, alcohol. The flavor offers fruity hops and booze. Not too good. A few ounces of this beer is more than I need. Out of balance. Low carbonation with too much alcohol in the flavor. No thanks.

ROGUE (2086) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 29, 2012
On tap. Poured a clear golden copper color with a small white head that fades quickly. Aroma is fruity and sweet with a lot of yeasty esters, over ripe banana and faint wheat. Tastes of passion fruit and pear with a lot of yeasty notes, banana, bubblegum, sweet wheat malt and a touch of spice. Medium body with good carbonation and a lingering sweetness.

22 oz bomber. Pours a mostly clear orangish amber with a nice white head. Aroma is Belgian yeast and fruity with pear and apple. Taste is funky and fruity and hides the ABV very well. Nice saison.

jsquire (3340) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Hazy golden color out of the bottle with a fizzy off white head. Light, spritzy fruit loop nose. Fruity beer with what I assume is passion fruit. Some strawberry notes, strong spice, honey and dark sugar sweetness. Full mouthfeel.

chinchill (1378) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Decent looking and A very fruity saison. It has an intriguing aroma featuring apple cider, pear, apricot, and biscuit. The flavor is also very fruity with plenty of yeast too, imparting a light funk. Lingering aftertaste. Only slight presence of alcohol. Medium body. Unique and interesting brew, but a bit too much funk for my tastes.

Gold pour, white head. Some tropical fruit and yeast flavors and it’s pretty good, but not great.
