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.

Strong and alcoholic aroma. Dry and bitter finish. Artificial flavour of wax from oranges.

Reddish brown coloured. Fruity aroma with some coffee notes. Quite sweet and boring flavour with a metallic finish. Thin.

Dark amber color; creamy head. Simple caramel aroma. Quite interesting flavor, caramel and roasted malt; promising, but unfortunately too much metallic.

Strangely, bright red with a thick, white head. The aroma is interesting--and not in the best way. There’s not much character to this one. Slightly spicy with boring malt and no hops. If it makes sense, this is like the dumbing down of a good style. Give up on light, crisp, spicy hops and funky yeast to get uninteresting, everyday malt, fake spicing and no bitterness. I guess I’m glad I got try it, but don’t count on me drinking much more of this one. What a shame...

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - MAR 24, 2004
Amber coloured beer with a small head. Sweet caramelly aroma. The taste is a bit too sweet. The bitterness is there but the caramel is too dominating. Could be better balanced. I want saisons to be more bitter.

skortila (4821) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2004
Aroma is quite good; sweet malty, bit yeasty and fruity (abrikot). Looks are okay. Hazy, amber-brown coloured with a lasting head. Taste is initially sweet-malty and fruity, becomes more bitter in the end with a not too great aftertaste (some kind of polish). Aftertaste is a pitty rest is quite good.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 29, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2005 darkish red amber, nice solid head..musty nose of yeast and banana, and maybe some grape...grapey and yeasty flavors remaining clean and refreshing...not too spicy though...subtly fruity with chewy yeastiness and some overripe apple.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2004
Muddy brown colour with a fruity sour aroma. The taste is somewhat of burnt fruit and is a tad too fizzy in the mouth. A complex beer but not moreish

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.
