Ungstrup (29017) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2006
An unclear yellow beer with a huge lazing off-white head. The aroma is sweet and lovely spicy - especially with cloves and coriander, but also with a touch of citrus. The flavor is sweet citrusy and very spicy, coriander being strongest, as well as having a fruity touch of oranges, leading to a dry spicy end. Nice saison.

fiulijn (14290) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2009
Draught at Barcade, New York
Hazy blond color. The aroma is lightly spicy (coriander). Medium body strength; the flavor is lightly spicy, but boring overall, confirming that American microbreweries should not brew Belgian styles.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2008 Beige, slightly hazy. Slightly funky, with some pedio. Fairly full body, spicy, with a nice firm alcohol finish with herbal hops. This cuts through just a hint of sweetness at the fore, which comes in a little plasticy. Some spritziness moves the body forward. Decent little saison.

(750ml bottle, thanks Shadrach) The bottle oozed white foam as soon as the cork popped, and it gradually was replaced in the glass by a hazy lemon yellow body. Aroma is moderately sweet, orange, some floral, light lemon/grass. Taste is medium sweet, orange, spicy, some clove, pepper, light dusky. Fairly dry finish. Creamy medium body.
