Bottle… Pours murky and brown with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Good retention. The bouquet is of moderately roasted grains, spice and herb phenols and mild chocolate. Medium-bodied and very creamy with relaxed carbonation. The flavor is lightly acidic and herbal. Finishes herbal and lightly bitter. Bottle shared by Maltzilla!

Thanks to hopdog for sharing. Pours a brownish amber with a bubbly creamy off white head. Aroma of traditional saison spiciness along with nuts and toasted malt. Flavor was also nutty, some peppery and tropical fruit notes.

egajdzis (5275) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2010
Red brown color with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of spices, citrus fruits, some cocoa, and dark fruits. Taste of dark fruitiness, light cocoa, spices, tart citrus, and a dry finish.

750ml bottle - thanks Andy for sending this one my way. Poured a medium to deeper brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of spices, some earthiness, cocoa, and bananas. Tastes follow suit with some caramel.

Damico (2511) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2010
The aroma is very light, a bit malty and light brown sugar with a tad of funkl. The color is cloudy mud brown. The flavor is funky, wild, sweet, but all of these flavors are light notes.

Had this recently thanks to "hannont". Colour...ruddy-amber with a thick head. Nose... fruity and acetic. Palate... quite yeasty, bittersweet (but not too much), some grain but refreshing nonetheless and a quick finish.

notalush (4795) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 10, 2010
Thanks to Bill for this one - hazy reddish brown with a huge, foamy, lasting head - very nice-looking beer - a bit of yeasty doughiness in the nose, but mostly dry cocoa, herbs, toasty grains, earthy/dusty qualities - quite a yeasty beer, with a lot of toasted grain flavor, a touch of semi-sour rye - a bit of cocoa and nutty character - semi-earthy - much more like a dark biere de garde, but a decent one.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2011 750mL shared by Brandon through Bill, thanks LI crew. Bottle pops loud but doesn’t foam out of the bottle. Pours with a large, foamy head, Carbonation is way too strong but settles down eventually. Beautiful beer from the large head, has a brown body that I cannot see through. Aroma is a very nice and earthiness and very airy. Airy grainy buckwheat is what I get. Flavor is lighter, light bark-like earthiness, and more watery, this easy drinking. Ends lightly bitter bark. A nice beer, maybe good for aging, definitely a strong yeast. A bit more like a Biere de Garde and Saison mix. 8/4/7/3/16

Bottle is aging nicely, really lost that BdG aspect and coming into its own as an airy, dark, Saison. Its lively and the yeast has eaten away some of the heavier aspects and the Saison yeast is coming strong. 8/4/8/4/16

25.4 oz bottle. Clear ruby brown with a pillowy white head. Nose is yeast, banana pudding and brown sugar. Medium light with foamy carb. Taste is yeast, toffee and lemon peel with a grassy finish. A classic saison but oddly subdued.
