Dough77 (821) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Pours cloudy dark yellow borderline orange. Descent finger thick white head. Nose is of spices and banana with some lighter malt notes as well as pepper. Flavor is similar but this beer is incredibly smooth. I’m not huge on saisons but this girl was a beaut. Very drinkable.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 30, 2007
Bottle. Cloudy orange. Heavy foam bed resting atop the beer. The foam looks like it would hold a fingerprint. Strong scent of citrus and spices, mostly peppery. Flavour seems tamed, very drinkable and approachable for a Saison. Dry until the last sip which is shockingly sweet by comparison.

aru (105) - Smørum, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2007
At first the impression is like a traditionally lager, however the taste is much more rich and soon points of fruit and yeast get into the picture.
