Bottle... Hazy yellow ale with a huge, frothy, white head. Terrific retention. Spicy, breadsy nose with banana, pale and fuzzy fruit esters, coriander phenol and dough. Sweet, fruity flavor up front, then gently bitter, slightly pungent and spicy on the backside. Medium-bodied and creamy with fizzy carbonation. Finishes a touch tangy then fairly dry. Without the cage, my bottle would’ve opened itself. Feisty!

deep golden with a very large frothy off white head. A good amount of carbonation. aroma is pronounced with lots of tart lemon, citrus, spicy and earthy. Taste is tart citrus, and spices all over the palate, very dry, with lingering spicy notes. a nice suprise, as i bought this on a whim.

US breweries are starting to out-belgian belgium. An amazing number of good to great belgian style beers being made in the US. Sly fox’s saison is a winner. Even at the end of a pretty good drinking session this beer came through fresh, lively and spicy. A nice finish to the evening. (Thanks Pete)

RBSG 2006 Grand Tasting. Clear deep golden with a white head. Caramel and grassy hops in the nose. Flavor has notes of pale brewing malt, grass, honey, hay, spiciness and some caramel. Medium body with a dry, spritzy mouthfeel. Enjoyable stuff.

Sampled at RBSG06. Slightly hazy amber color with a large frothy off-white head. Aroma of sweet grain and light honey. Flavor of dark malt and grain.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Cloudy, white grapefruit color with a fading, sudsy white head. Aroma of barnyard, spicy coriander, citrus, and some distant sulfur. Flavor is moderately sweet with some nice tartness, medium bitterness, and a semi-dry finish. A fairly tantalizing saison with some depth. Refreshing and interesting.

Remarkable, bright golden body with an enormous white head that leaves crazy sheets of lace up and down sides of the glass. An interesting, sweet and slightly tart aroma. Residual sugars provide sweetness, loads of fruity esters reveal pineapple, mango and banana. Some oranges and lemon zest add citric fruitiness. Dry sawdust shows some funkiness and a unique elements. Some pale malt and light grains show some malty depth that is complemented by dry biscuits and fresh dough. The body is fairly moderate with soft carbonation prickling the tongue from time to time. The flavor shows some fruity sweetness up front, but later the lively yeast, moderate hops and mild alcohol take over and show how dry this beer really is. The perceived sweetness is shortlived but unfortunately takes away from my overall enjoyment. While it’s pretty tasty, I was hoping for a little more.

750 ml. bottle. Pours a cloudy yellowish color with an extremely thick white head that diminishes rather quickly. Aroma is of lemon citrus,fresh yeast and hops. Taste is slightly sour, lemony and yeasty with hops present. Very carbonated and could easily pass as a good pilsner. Very good !!

A nice idea of the farmhouse beer style, but it is not meaty, if that’s what you like in your saison. Simple, and mildly malted. Delicate floral notes, as well as gentle, and sweet fruits. Not too sweet, nor is it too malty. Some citrus in the flavor leads to a slightly bitter, dryish finish.
