winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - MAY 18, 2006
Poured a hazy dark straw with a huge fluffy persistent head. This beer is wonderful, and one of my favorite saisons. Very refreshing and light with the typical spicy earthiness of most saisons. Also many light fruit flavors including lemon, melon, white peach, and mangos. A good dosage a hops lends a beautiful dryness and flavor. Another wonderful attempt from North Coast.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 14, 2006
Rating #600: Pours with a huge, perennial head over a hazy, orange body; yeasty, fruity aroma thatís peppery and flowery; sweet and tart up front; flavors include honey and orange peel; pilsner qualities in malt profile and spicy, noble hoppiness; musty, tangy and pretty bitter finish. This one has some nice characteristics, but they donít mesh very well.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2006
Huge golden pour, head lasted quite a while. A sharp fruity flavor, yeasty. Abit earthy. An ok brew, but could be better, not bad.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a hazy pale golden with a thick, white head with good retention. Aroma of yeast and banana. Rather light body - I never wouldíve guessed this to be 7.3% ABV. Fruity and fresh with notes of yeast. Some sulphur in the finish. A decent wheat beer, thatís what it is. 300406

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Pours a big fizzy over a golden beer. Huge yeasty musty aroma that reminds me of Vieuve Cliquot. Sharp and citrusy - lemon and a little grapefruit. Clean finish, lacks some complexity.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Bottle.16.9 oz. Pours a hazy yellow with an incredible head. Highly carbonated. Citrus and bread on the nose. Flavors are earthy, yeasty and spicy with a sour citric finish. The beer is thin but quite flavorful. I ended up enjoying this one by the end of the bottle as it warmed. Tasted great with a cheese platter I was enjoying at the time. Expensive. Purchased at Whole Foods for $8.99.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2007 2007-09-22, corked bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival, 7-4-7-4-15=37
Hazy blond color; big creamy head. Some aroma of coriander and oranges. Good mouthfeel, dry malt flavor, sweet, spicy, with a dynamic orange touch. Very good (a sweeter and fruiter Saison).

2006-04-30, corked Bottle, as Whole Foods Silver Jubilee 25th Anniversary Ale, 5-3-6-3-12=29
Muddy golden color. Strange aroma, flowery. Very dry malty taste, some fruitness and resins maybe from the hops, high bitterness with orange peel. Drinkable and refreshing, but quite odd.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2006
Bottle. Unclear yellow colour with a weak head. Aroma of spices, yeast and malt. Sour flavour of yeast, spice and wheat, nice but nothing overwelming.

Ungstrup (29222) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2006
An unclear orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with quite a lot of hops, as well as a good fruit presence. The flavor is very fruity with notes of mango, oranges, peaches, on a sweet background that also includes notes of caramel. The end is dry and bitter with a slight dusty touch.

Bottle. Hazy yellow colour with a big white head. Fruity, citrus, yeasty, spicy aroma and a sweet light floral, fruity taste. Medium body with a sweet dry finish.
