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.

The Lure:
Funky, farmhouse bičre de garde malt poses its intriguing sweetness onto citrusy, curaçao-like freshness. The deep copper garment is somewhat of a surprise.

The Festivities:
Wild, toasted grain grows amidst the ethereal fruitiness of berries and apricots. Tart emissions emanate within the flowery hop bitterness. All is serene and vivacious.

Transcendence:
The toil of harvest does have its perks.

Sweet and malty aroma with a light earthy and peppery undertone is very straight forward but greatly appealing. Claer, dark copper-amber with strong, off-white head that recedes to generous cover with plenty of patchwork lacing. Slight sour fruitiness takes the edge of all tose sweet malts. Medium-light body with fair carbonation. At times seemed more like a Biere de Garde or even a Dubbel in character. Bottle (Best Before 29/05/05) enjoyed with MartinT and Rastacouere.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2005
Dark copper surprisingly. Gentle off-white head. Very malty aroma, moreso like a bičre de garde in nature. It also has those earthy, musty and even salty components that in the actual forms, I wouldn’t associate with a saison, mostly with this toasted malt profile. On the other hand, taking it for what it is, this aroma is very pleasant and satisfying if a bit light. It’s sweet and bubbly on the palate, Gentle spicy and salty hops make for a smooth transition from the buttery and raisiny malt. Mild grassy tartness caress the tongue before merging into an almost metallic finish though not unpleasant. Light body, moderately carbonated. Well, this was a pleasant beer if not quite as hoppy as I expect a saison, but just as refreshing and drinkable. I just wouldn’t consider the differences as extras over your average saison.

Pours burnt orange with faint tan head. Nose is fruity, spicy and malty. Flavor is slightly sour with underlying nutty toffee-like character. Not your traditional saison. Lingering dry finish.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2004
Bottle brought back from Belgium.A load of unfermented wort aroma, unpleasent unfished sugar and sour malt. Not very nice. Silly don’t seem to be a very good brewery. Drainpour

Draft: Cloudy, ruby colored. Aroma of sugars and some fruit, flavor spicy, sweet, and earthy. Interesting and different from other saisons i have had. Quite good.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - DEC 5, 2004
Deep brown reddish body, thin off-white head. Sweet carmelly aroma with some fruity notes. Fruit, toffee and brown sugar in the flavor. Full and sweet and atypical for a saison.

badgerben (4805) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 26, 2004
Amber color with a thin head. Malty aroma, much more so than the typical Saison. Bitter and flowery taste that you would expect from the style, but it was tarnished by a metallic tang at the end. I’m not sure if it was our bottle or not, but it definitely had an impact on the beer. Still, a little tasty.

BBB63 (6526) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 26, 2004
Bottle: reddish amber hue with small head and little lace. The aroma has notes of belgian candi sugar, caramel, ripen pear and boysenberry, rye bread, and earthy yeast esters. The taste starts malty sweet with a sublime fruity character. Surprised by the lack any acidic or spicy qualities to this brew, this is a Saison right? The finish does produce a mild bitter nature, but too late to may the palate happy. The feel is just average. Boy, this is a letdown, one of the worst excuses for a "saison" I’ve ever had.
