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.

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

dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2004
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 (4722) - 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.

Brown/Red Coloring. Frothy Head. Herbs..Prune/Raisin...Very Sweet... Kind of a Cardboard Taste at the End...

BBB63 (6507) - 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.

Sven (229) - Lancaster, California, USA - OCT 22, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2004 Draught at Lucky Baldwins, Pasadena
Dark amber brown in colour below a creamy off-white head that laces well. Pleasant aroma of malt, fruit, spice, and freshly baked bread. The body has a medium mouthfeel and is sweet with a lightly bitter drying finish.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 12, 2004
Nice orange colour, slightly hazy with a thick yellowy head. Nice fresh, biscuity, caramel aroma with some spice and apple cores. Tastes far too sweet for mine. It has a very nice juicy, caramelly maltiness but it’s way out of balance and one-dimensional. Coming home from work on a hot night I expected a Saison to be nice and refreshing (this exactly what the style is for right??) but this was thick and cloyingly sweet. Dunno why MJ reckons this is good.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 4, 2004
330 mL bottle: dark red cedar body...hazy, almost gritty in appearance. Large, slowly falling, fluffy light brown head. Strong metallic aroma, with some bits of cherry skins and sour malt. Sugary palate, lacking in any real complexity or funkiness...mild caramel flavours with some toffee and a lightly bitter hop finish.

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2004
Bottle @ Akkurat, Stockholm
Dark orange. Full bodied and rich. Toffee, grass, milk chocolate, mud (!). tobacco ends in a mellow aftertaste. Might be slightly to sweet in the long run.
