Faint fruity saison aroma. Cloudy orange-yellow appearance with a full head. This is really an excellent Begian beer, a fine saison. Definitely could have this again and again.

MN Ratebeer Winter Gathering ’06. Bottle. Really sour aroma; effervescent. Light gold in color with some visible carbonation and a white head. Excellent lace. Crystal clear body. Belgian flavor. Very dry. It’s fine. Not sure I really like it. Has some characteristics of a dry white wine.

walter (359) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2006
500ml corked bottle. Hazy golden with white head. Nose of sour citrus, green apples, pears, hay, yeast, and some general funkiness. Super carbonated, with sweet and sour flavors of all of the above blending nicely into a crisp tartness overall. Dry finish is somewhat grassy and yeasty. Tasty stuff!

HumbertHumbert (77) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2006
Earthy, barnyard flavors with just a little too much sweetness. Mild fruit and spice, nothing prominent, just well balanced. A touch of burnt rubber bitterness at the end prevented this from being a greater beer, but still quite enjoyable.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2006
Nice golden body with a heavy white head. Some cheddar aroma, light fruit accents (maybe bannana). Spicy body, light hops, maybe some thin fruit accents. Smooth, clean ending.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 3, 2006
Hazy light golden color with a thick foamy white head. Spice, apples and light sour notes in the aroma. Sweet flavors with some hints of bananas.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 17, 2006
Corked 500 ml bottle. Hazy golden color with foamy white head. Cloves, bananas, sour apples, and citrus round out the aroma. Spicy up front with a delicate sweetness in the middle followed by a sour/bitter finish. Flavors follow the aroma fairly closely. Extremely effervescent.

dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - MAR 15, 2006
Aroma of yeast, cloves and white pepper, floral hops, toast. Appears a cloudy golden yellow with good effervescence and with a large foamy white head. Flavor is peppery and earthy, with a bitter finish, all overlying the slightest sweet honey backbone; a yeasty breadiness is apparent in the aftertaste. Palate is crisp, refreshing, and highly effervescent. Overall, I find this to be an interesting brew and it is equal to the sum of its parts.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAR 10, 2006
500 ml bottle - Cloudy bright gold body topped by a gienormours pillowy head. The aroma is very yeasty: herbs and pepper with some citrus thrown in for good measure. The flavor is citrus, light plastic notes and big peppery finish. Spritzy body. A bit one-dimensional but not a bad beer.

Aubrey (3452) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 23, 2006
Cloudy and yellow-orange. Lively carbonation ... and a fluffy mouthfeel. Spicy, aromatic hops (pepper, grass), with lesser notes of bitter orange and sweet passion fruit. Pinch of sourness in the background, along with some yeast notes. Sweetness was mildish; bitterness was a bit heavy on the tongue. Overall, not as funky and vibrant as many traditional farmhouse ales, but it was really pleasant and surprisingly well made.
