Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2013
Tasty saison, nice spiciness. Head on golden yellow. From Lueken Liquours. Dry and significant carbonation, though I think somewhat past bottle’s "posted" due date.

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2013 Highly bitter lemon pith, grass, wood oil astringency, bitter green leaves with a slightly unclean / laundry soap yeast presence. Basil and marijuana green leaf / herbal aroma, some alcohol noticed. Medium body, low carbonation, low sweetness (apparently), high bitterness. Mashed apple and pear esters seem to amplify this greenness. Bracing bittering in a lengthy finish becomes unenjoyable due to the astringent wood oil character. That said, it’s easy to just sip and not think about and it comes across as a decent beer then. But for a Belgian-made saison / hoppy golden ale? Doesn’t fit where I want it to.

JorisPPattyn (7716) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 31, 2012
Huge, whipped-cream - like head, quite even and stable over (cold)hazed yellow- to orange-golden beer. Very slightly oppressive, grains- and (lightly toasted) breadnose. Later garden herbs and (more than) probably white candi sugar. Quite outspoken hoppy flavour, explosively surprising as this stands perpendicular on the nose. Bitter as it is, it is a quite welcome surprise, and satisfying. Quite smooth (terrible term, I know), creamy and yet well-carbonated feel; medium bodied; quite dry finish. Pretty darn’ good!

Benzai (6409) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle shared with Dutchdrebus. Slightly unclear golden color with a huge, quickly diminishing white head. Smell malts, slightly hops, slightly some fruits. Taste malts, lightly fruity, lightly hops, decent bitterness. Quite nice. Medium body and carbonation.

sebletitje (6326) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2012
33cl bottle, BB 29/05/2014, merci à Mike pour la bouteille. Dorée, col blanc épais crémeux.3 Arôme est bien houblonné frais et fleuri avec une pointe citronnée et tropicale. Palais fruité rappelant la papaye et pamplemousse laissant des notes agréable de houblon et amertume. Le tout sur ce profile bien belge, sec en bouche avec une belle effervescence et au fini un malt léger tendant vers le pâle.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow, unfiltered. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of lemon/lime/orange peels, pepper, gum. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Pleasant and clean, not what I was expecting given that this comes out of the De Proef factory. Lots of citrus peel and floral character...simple but nice. Could use more bitterness or tartness in the finish to make it more interesting (once you swallow, it pretty much vanishes completely), but all in all it’s decent.

Mora2000 (5346) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has some biscuit and grass notes. The flavor is a mix of toffee, biscuit malt, grass and yeast. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
