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.

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.

Bottled. This wasn't bad. Has a slight spicy taste to it.

caesar (5499) - 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.

omhper (20448) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2003
Bottled. Very far from the other saisons I've tried. Ruby colour. Deep fruity aroma. Sugary sweet, and completely dominated by crystalized sugar flavour which makes it one-dimensional and simply too sweet for me.

jerohen (2048) - 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.

thedm (5001) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 2, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured a medium head of fine to medium sized bubbles and a cloudy brown body. It has a very nice malt aroma and a flavorful taste of a mixture of spices and malt. It is very smooth with only a slight after bite and a fair lacing.

jbrus (4991) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2003
UPDATED: APR 10, 2005 The most non-saison type of saison I’ve ever had. But I like it a lot. Nutty nose, light roasted and plum as well. Dark red color, small light brown head, fair lace. Sweet, nutty, sugar, plum, quite complex. Long lasting, light hopbitter and rather dry finish. 13 jaar old3.5: Raisin aroma with a hint of port. Hazy, orange/amber color, beige head, good lace. Unexpected sweet, very sweet even, raisin, apple, port, sugary.

JorisPPattyn (8197) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 19, 2003
Dark ruby-amber with red-golden shine (Saison?), thick yellow head, lacey. Nose of sugar (Saison?), Madeira (?? - aha, 'BBdate' is 1 month ago - strange, that's when I bought it), maple syrup and raisins. Taste is water with syrup (like maple or candi) dissolved. Porto-ish flavour too. This is ridiculous. Nice, but ridiculous. Retronasal there's just a hint of oxide-acidity. Good point. Thin bodied. Well THAT's another one OK with the style. Only is it countered by the madeirisation and the esters. It has to loose points somewhere - this travesty of a classic style. But the unexpectedly ageing of the bottle saved it, I darkly suspect. The much rarer draught version is usually better, and more closely resembles the traditional Saison-style. Which is a contradiction in se for a bottle-lagered style...

aracauna (3179) - Georgia, USA - MAY 13, 2003
Hazy dark brown body is topped by relatively thin but creamy and lasting head. The aroma is lemon zest, toffee, vague fruitiness and a slight leafiness. Flavor is candy-like but not overly sweet. Ripe pears. Oak wood competes with cola in the finish.

hotstuff (4388) - Indiana, USA - JUN 2, 2003
Poured a medium light brown head with fine-small bubbles. The lacing was sparse and the body was cloudy and reddish-brown. It had a plum aroma in my opinion with a light body.
