probstblueribbon (3726) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2010
Bomber via Lubiere, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. Bottle nOV. 2009, BATCH TEN. Slow, steady gusher.

App.: Very cloudy orange-amber with a large, loose white froth. Aroma: Quite tangy, somewhat fruity, hints of tropical fruit esters, Saison bordering on Lambic funk, bitter green herbs, very slightly nutty (not roasted, raw), bread and biscuit later on, Palate: Medium+ body, very full effervescence that fills the mouth. Flav.: More like a Tripel in mouth, citrus, earthy, yeasty, some light tropical esters, still some tangy, funky notes and a bit of the bitter green herbs, seems fruitier than the nose, Tripel with an edge, maybe; dry with a fair sour kick and a more than fair bitter kick, finishes with some bread/biscuit malts and sour fruits.

Quite the brew. Definitely American amping of a Belgian style. Im not loving it. Jack dArgent, maybe?

22oz shared by after4ever. Clear darker golden with uniform tight slightly off-white head...looks good. Light lemon, hay, touch of bubblegum, and raw almonds. Nice light lemon tartness, delicate esters, cracker bite and finishes with some dry peppery hay. Decent but not great.

Travlr (21661) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 2, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2011 22 ounce bottle at the Publick House. Clear orange, thick, creamy white head. Aroma of dust and orange peel, and a ton of coriander. Taste is bitter, dry, licorice, pepper, orange. Unbalanced. Odd. 3.2 Re-taste: sample of 2010 version at Paradiso Georgetown. Significantly improved recipe with nice sour grapefruit and barnyard aroma and taste, much better complexity and character.

RPKLove (105) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 1, 2010
Tingly on the palate with an unenjoyable dry finish reminiscent of a pilsner. A brew more interesting than good, and expensive at roughly 8 a pop.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 1, 2010
Bottle split with anchor. Purchased from Whole Foods Bowery after checking out the nearby bar, Slainte. This is my 3rd from pretty things.. others Ive had only on draft. I have to admit the bottle is awesome looking, but I was quickly reminded you cannot judge a book by its cover. Pour is a light orange, slightly hazy.. dissapating white soapy head. Smell was tart, orange, coriander, farmhouse. Taste was tart and uncompliant... sour and offensive. Literally made my stomach churn which never happens. Extremely unenjoyable. Between the two of us, we could barely finish a half glass before pouring it out. Complete waste. Terrible.

tennessejed420 (940) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 29, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2010 22 oz. bottle, batch 10. Pours a cloudy gold nectar, with average sized white head. Somewhat sweet floral aroma, hops present but not in the typical way, pungent, spruce, flowery, yeast noticeable. Taste reveals a sour fruitiness, cranberry, lemongrass, lightly spiced. Full bodied. This is certainly unique, not bad, but a little too much sour berry on the finish, very tart, for my taste.

lefossoyeur (589) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2010
Golden blonde with a thin white head. Sweet aromas of belgian ale with some spices coming trough (cinnamon) and some esters. Medium body, medium level of carbonation, hint of tartness in the attack, some minerality, but a grapefruity bitterness rapidly follows and it finishes on an almost harsh grapefuit peel bitterness. Lingering bitter finish. Nice beer, altough a-typical for a saison, but label says "american saison", whatever that means...

Pours deep orange with loads of carbonation. Light spice and citrus in the aroma. Tastes of spice, bread, citrus. Great beer for the changing season.

sloth (2815) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - MAR 28, 2010
Medium sized white head with fair retention and some spotty lace. Lightly hazy gold/orange color. Nicely spicey nose, citrus, grass and some coriander. Body is almost medium, good carbonation. Dry malt flavors, light breadyness, some funk?, lemony zestyness. Dry lightly fruity finish. Nice quaff! Thanks to NYbeer for the bomber.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 24, 2010
2009 Bottle from Zipps - Pours a hazy golden with a massive off white head...aroma is nicely phenolic, spicy, grainy, plenty of lemon...flavour is similar, tart apriot and lemon, coriander and slight shampoo, plenty of chalky yeast...a very refreshing interpretation on saison...
