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.

note - dont bother ageing this beer. cellared this for a year and a bit and didnt gain a lot. still, nothing to lose, i remember it being pretty crappy when i first had it 5 years back. red-brown - looks like JS amber ale. i think this bottle was a bit oxidised - smelt of one-dimensional sweet malt, with some sherry. taste has some biscuity (dog-biscuity!) nutrigrain sweetness, touch of bitterness, but not much else. not even as fruity as i remember it, just flabby and sweet. oh well.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 9, 2005
his does not hve the typical farmhouse character of a true saison. Vey acidic and unbalanced. some yeast and spice notes very little fruit with a little oxidation coming thru. very thin mouthfeel and some off flavors in the finish.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2005
Clear amber, small tan head. sweet yeasty orange aroma. Fruity flavour nectarines with a yeasty background. Thin body. Harsh carbonation. Fruity and light herbal finish.

TBone (16194) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 2, 2005
Deep "kriek" red, good brownish head. Aroma of red currant and rye bread. Full-bodied, sweetish with berries and sugar, like Grandma’s red currant juice. Some late bitterness in the aftertaste. Quite unique saison.

joet (2547) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JAN 26, 2005
very malty, not like a typical saison at all, cookies and biscuit. some fruit esters. hmmm this is most like an American brown or "amber". Slight sour fruit. Not very interesting. Not much in the nose of an "outdoor" nature. No refreshing crispness to the body.

rederic (3256) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 26, 2005
Amber color hue, with a big foamy head. It has a fruity, yeasty of ripe apples, and candy sugar nose. Medium-bodied, with a fruity, sweety flavors with a hint of acidity on the tongue, with his malted appearance make out on a shy bitterness finish.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2005
(Bottled, 5% ABV, BBE 02/2005) Very hazy, beautiful , dark red color with a medium, lasting and lacy, beige head. Toffeeish, caramely, quite malty aroma with some vinegar, bubblegum and raspberry hints. Very interesting, sweetish, a bit sour flavor with lots of plums, dried fruit, some toffee, burnt sugar - you name it. Medium-bodied, oily, smooth, sweet-sourish, moderately carbonated palate. A very drinkable, but admirably tasty and enjoyable saison. Quite original for its style. A dessert drink.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2005
The Lure:
Funky, farmhouse bière 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.

The toil of harvest does have its perks.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2005
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 bière 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.
