ClubGonzo (3946) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2011
Sample @ RBNAG 11 (live rating). Hazy straw colored body, small white head. Fruity apricot tones, saison yeast and grassy hops. Fresh citric tones up front, then kiwi, yeast and caramel malty hints. Extremely nicely balanced saison, fruity and refreshing.

On tap @ Mikkeller bar. The aroma has citric and grassy hops, earthy yeast. Hazy, yellow coloured beer with a white head. The taste is light bitter, bit cheesy, earty, citric, light grassy. Quite dry mouthfeel. Good.

thirdeye11 (5501) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2011
(750ml bottle best by 1/2014 thanks to bu11zeye) clear gold with thick frothy head. Nose of Belgian saison yeast, earthy, nice faded/aged hops, orange and other citrus peels in here too. Taste of earth, Belgian yeast, tons of spices, aged hops, subdued flavor. Linger of faded hops, and a bit of umami.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2011
Bottle. Pours a nice orange color with a frothy white head. Aroma is dominated by lemony and grassy hops, with some wet grass, hay, barnyard, earthy and herbal notes and some spice. Flavor is also quite hoppy with the lemony and grassy flavors, along with spice, yeast esters, barnyard, wet grass and earthy notes. The body is medium with a dry mouthfeel. Overall a really nice take on Saison Dupont.

suprchunk (2103) - Crestview, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2011
Clear pale straw color. Huge white head that is slow to fade and leaves plenty of lacing behind. Smells of hops. Hops, earthy grass, malt, brett and pepper. Spicy flavor with a bit of hops and malt mixed together. Bitter, sweet. Dry and light. Pretty decent.

Pelik59 (15) - FRANCE - SEP 30, 2011
Goutée @ La capsule (Lille) en pression, cuvée 2011. Quelles saveurs incroyables ! Le dry hopping apporte un coté très fleuri et très réussi comparé à la version 2010 !

Served from a magnum at the De Heeren 20th Anniversary party during last week’s trip to Belgium. Reviewed from notes. Luckily I was the first of the day to order this one so I got to watch them pop open the magnum. Very cool. Served in a mini snifter. Poured a nice slightly-hazed golden-straw color with a good white head and quite a bit of lacing. Really long-lasting head, actually. The nose and flavor were both pretty similar to the regular version but with an extra bit of hop character. Light pepper and a bit of earthiness. Good floral hop character throughout. Light body and quite dry with a nice bitterness in the finish. Crisp carbonation. Glad I was able to find this one.

(bottle) cork exploded right off. pours a hazy golden colour with a frothy white head. very spicy aroma of pineapples, white pepper, herbal hops, cashew nuts, wet hay and straw. flavour is subtly floral and yeasty, with light notes of marzipan and a yeasty, peppery finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.
