COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saison style top fermentation old brown beer. Its taste is remarkable, light and favourably combined to offer a tone that is both modestly sweetened and fruity, leaving the mouth with a refreshing feel as is constantly asked of it.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - FEB 16, 2004
Smelled like a fruit salad. Tasted a little like metal and overripe fruit. Not very sweet, slightly bitter finish.

rgrep (156) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 12, 2004
(5% ABV) Dark brown beer with a hint of red. Creamy off-white head that laces well. Warm and inviting aroma of malt, fruit, spice, and freshly baked bread, reminiscent of brandy triffle. The body has a medium mouthfeel and is sweet with a lightly bitter finish.

bierkoning (10920) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2005 Creamy off-white head. Just a bit soapy aroma. Sweet and caramelly with butterscotch. Apricot fruit. Some skunky bitterness. Disappointing saison. 5 3 5 2 9 = 2.4 Re-rate: bottled march 1992, sampled april 2005. Dust an sherry in the aroma. There’s still power under the cork. Sweet and raisiiny. Has become thin, but there’s still loads of flavor. Cherry sweets, mandarin. Vinous. A pleasant surprise, this 13 year old beer. (7 3 7 3 13 = 3.3). The rating is for the fresh version. Re-rate: tap. Café de Engel Oldenzaal. Sweet flavor with hops, licorice, caramel and mustard. Long lingering caramelly bitter aftertaste. Not bad at all, too sweet to be really good.

beerledgend (1197) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 27, 2003
Dark red in colour, big spritzy head, heavy aroma of malt, interesing citrus flavours.

rauchbier (3652) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2003
Bottled. Amber bronze, thin white head and moderate condition. Hoppy, fruit and caramel aromas, reminicient of an english bitter, slight tangy citric fruit edge in the mouth with some background hop flavour and a slight dryness in the finish with a touch of yeastiness emerging late on.

Holdwine (1116) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 3, 2003
I like the name and the taste of this saison. Fruity aroma, citrus? That ruddy brown color I like. Finishes nicely with a little spice and kick.

dberger624 (1028) - Phila, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2003
Bottled. This wasn't bad. Has a slight spicy taste to it.

LINKBREW (101) - Santee, California, USA - JUL 22, 2003
Reddish brown, clear. very little head or CO2. Sweet aroma, followed by a fairly sweet taste. No real spice taste or aroma. I wouldn't grade this well for a saisonb, but the beer is ok.

caesar (5653) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2003
Cloudy orange color, short head. Fruity and dusty aroma. Taste was supposed to be a combination of a gueuze and a rodenbach, but then it was a very weak combination. Pretty metallic palate.

jerohen (2061) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2008 Rating reflects aged sample. Re-rate: Bottled 0.25 liter; BB 06-04-07; sampled 20-03-2008. The beer still came gushing out after all these years, impressive! Very nice aged aroma, raisins and malts, really nice. Sweet malty flavour, somewhat watery though. As i said before, this is one to age. Original rating Dutch Ratebeer meeting. Bottled 03-1992, 0.7 liter (13 years old). Copper coloured, big white head. Very "aged" aroma, port-notes, dried fruit. Surprisingly sweet flavour, some raisins, quite smooth. Seems like it survived all these years in the cellar, pretty good.
