2000 vintage Golden amber with a champagne-esque lively body. The head is initially large and frothy and mostly maintains its size. Spicy acidic aroma, almost like a gueze. The flavor is equally as interesting, sweetness up front, then tons of spices, and some acidity, followed by musty aftertaste. Body is medium and quite lively. To sum it up, the saison that thinks it is a gueze.

errr ... a kind of a let down. Aroma was of apples and oranges, maybe a litttle rotten apples but nicely balanced none of the less. Tiny head, a little dark amber colour. Taste was. Fruity undertones, balanced with malt, to much tart .. not as good as I was hoping

Very nice orange color with a light malt aroma and flavor. Somewhat earthy. A refreshing saison.

brewbandit (312) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 3, 2004
Very light carbonation by the sound of the cork extraction. Poured a bright orange amberish color with little head. Fruity aroma with faint hint of malt. Flavor was similar with a light tartness and horsiness. A good Saison and easy drinking.

aracauna (3409) - Georgia, USA - JUN 16, 2004
Orange glow of a color. The head is very weak and fleeting. Tangerines, horse blanket aroma, a bit of cotton candy. Very little sweetness, but fruity. Very lambic-live, but not as tart as the hardcore gueuzes. A little pipe tobacco. Not sure if the beer was this lambic like originally or if its the aging, but it tastes intentional.

Shadrach (176) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 6, 2004
Poured a tan/orange. Aroma was almost like blacberries. Taste had some tang to it and an undertone of grapes and citrus. A bit too much tart "tanginess" for my tastes.

rickgordon (3851) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2004
Bottled. A beer that looks like peach juice, with its hazy grey/orange colour. Fruity nose, reminiscent of overripe/rotten apples with notes of pepper and Sevilla Orange. The flavour is peppery, a bit sour with coriander notes. Light bodied.

Bottled. HAzy amber. A spicy aroma and flavour with notes of coriander, overripe apples and pepper. A sourish and sweetish palate.

mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2004
very hazy deep gold, white head. aroma is very perfumy and funky with lots of barnyard, apple peel, lemon, and spices. the flavour is equally funky with woody sourness and spicy apple notes. 1995 bottle. has held up very well. delicious.

Kinz (3696) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2004
Vintage 1995. As usual, I didnt notice this tidbit until I was pouring the bottle. Burnished orange color, nice lasting head, very impressive for a 9 year old beer. Aroma was unrepentently horseblanket, with sourness. Flavor matched, with a subtle note of apples and gentle spice. The spouse stole the rest of the bottle from me and told me to go buy more. Awesome beer, would have been worthy of #600.
