Scopey (11356) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2016
Bottle thanks to Matteo at Craft Islington. Gush! It pours murky brown with a thick, foamy light beige head. The aroma is soft, sweet, funky, peach, sour apricot, dirty musty, floral notes and some creaminess. The taste is crisp, tart, funky, woody, dirty peach, apricot, alcohol, must and spice with a dry, woody finish. Medium body and high, foamy carbonation. High carbonation detracts from the overall experience. Decent anyhow.

deepeary (404) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2015
2012 cork. Pours a clear amber, well carbonated, with off white head. Nose nose is tart, white wine, flowers. Taste is malty with fruity esters, white wine, bread, figs, prunes, candied sugar, . Dry tart-dark fruit finish — a unique combo. Strange brew, not like any saison I’ve had, but good no less.

AirForceHops (5665) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 17, 2015
750 ml bottle purchased at Total Wine, Tampa. Amber borderline brown color. Aroma is huge hibiscus flowers, candied sugar, and some toasted grain. Body is a tad thin on this one. The hibiscus is mostly all I’m getting here. Almost a old lady’s perfume flavor. Pretty high level of carbonation, not really my style saison, if you call this that style.

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle from Will P in trade. Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange, little to no off white head. Aroma citrusy, with a hibiscus and a grainy yeast character as well. Body lively and a little dry, with a nice orange peel dry bitterness to the finish. Nice.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2015
750ml bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York. Hazy orange-brown in colour with a very quick to dissipate white head, no lacing. The aroma is very red wine like, musty and yeasty, alcohol, lots of grape in this. The flavour is very wine like, tart and acidic, fruity, lots of grapes. Acidic mouthfeel, medium body, high carbonation. Finishes long, tart and warming. Like a spicy red wine saison. Very weird but this seemed to grow on me.
