BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 10, 2009
Sampled at the Great Tucson Beer Festival. Not a fan of this at all. Didn’t really find the saison in here...in fact, tons of hefe characteristics with strong banana and clove presence. Dark ruby brown color with a small eggshell head...medium mouthfeel. Don’t really understand this one.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - OCT 2, 2009
On tap at Three Floyds served in a tulip. Mahogany brown pour with some ruby highlights and a lasting cap of tan foam that produced some nice lace. The aroma included cloves, orange peel, some wheat, and some bready yeast. The flavor also had some noticable wheat notes, and also some clove and spicy yeast. Kinda weird for a saison. Medium-bodied. Light, crisp carbonation. Drinkable, but not one of their best efforts.

On tap the the Sierra Tap House in Reno, NV. Amber/light brown color. Sweet malt, yeast, a touch of funk, pepper, and spiced bread. It was okay, I didnt enjoy it to much though. It was kind of messy.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 23, 2009
Dark amber to copper color. Moderate, foamy ecru head. Fairly yeasty aromas with spices of pepper and cloves. Nose has a touch of dough, toasted malt and cocoa. Flavors have some initial pale malt and then a bit of fruit and spice. Bit of banana and spice have a light dunkelweiss quality.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 20, 2009
This draft brew from a beer bar poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a transparent very softly carbonated caramel brown colored body. The mild aroma was mild malt. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt mild hops semi-sweet and brown malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Draft @ Little Waldorf Saloon. Pours a bold, clear, reddish-brown color; thin, light-tan head with fine-bubbled lacing that sticks. Some light funk, citrus, medium acidity, and a pleasant mix of breadiness and sweet esters in the aroma; some white pepper. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: chewy breadiness, good levels of mouthwatering acidity, chewy esters, and residual Belgian sugar sweetness; drinkable (appropriate) levels of carbonation, plenty of dense chewiness, tempered by white pepper and a light tartness. A bit messy, well-spiced, generous saison, but slightly off. Lengthy finish: sweet breadiness, white pepper, and Belgian sugar.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Virtually nothing to do with the style...but an interesting beer anyway. Clean transparent light brown pour with small tan head. The nose is pretty spicy with some dark fruits. Flavor is roasted caramel and toffee malts, with a substantial spice component (cinnamon and clove?) with a fruity yeast ester note. Moderately carbonated palate...almost spritzy on the tongue. Weird enough idea from a brewery not especially known for weird ideas.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2009
Draught. Pours reddish brown with a small head. Aroma is sweet malt and sour acidity, with some miscellaneous fruit, yeastiness, and spices. Flavor is pretty similar. An odd beer--- bit of sour funkiness, some malt-sweetness mixing with candy sweetness, spices, and estery fruits. Not bad, but not great.
