Yeasty aroma, bread, rye, wheat, spicy, some fruity esters. The color is brown (duh) reddish, off-white head. The flavor is molasses, candi sugar, rye, spicy, banana, and anote of chocolate. The finish is mild hops, and spices like coriander, slight bit of chocolate. The mouthfeel is medium, fairly high carbonation. Iíve wanted to try the brown saion for a while, but now that i have, it isnít substantially different than the regular saison, maybe a slight chocolate note not seen in a regular saison.

Bottle. Aroma very earthy and even basement-funky with oddly elegant clove notes and restrained candi sugar, some pleasant alcohol. Flavor has sweet elements from the candy sugar along with dry, earthy notes, and is richer than the aroma would indicate with a chocolate character. Strong peppery notes appear at the end as well. Pretty highly carbonated. I quite like this and can find nothing to complain about.

LilBeerDoctor (3504) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2010
Bottle purchased at the SPH release. Pours a deep brown with a thick light tan head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, grainy malts, bready malt, light spices. Flavor brings out more of the rye and other bready malts, still plenty of yeast and spices (esp. in the finish). Super drinkable and super tasty. I really enjoyed this one. 8/4/8/4/15 [3.9/5]

Beerapprentice (207) - Hopatcong, New Jersey, USA - FEB 2, 2010
On draft at SPH for the 2010 RIS release. This was among the goodies available on tap and in bottles. Pours a muddy brown colour with very little, if any head. Aroma of malts, rye, sweet raisins. Flavour of plenty of rye, malts. Not good enough to purchase a $14 bottle after tasting it but it was pretty good.

beerbill (3456) - Laurel, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2010
On draught at the Publick House and from a growler filled at Big Z and consumed the same day. Pours a very hazy deep brown, almost the color of prune juice actually, with a thin linen white head that lasted through the first two sips and left very little lace. Very pleasant and pungent fruity aroma along with Belgian yeast, bread, brown sugar and some alcohol vapors. This is a party for the nostrils! The flavor falls off a bit from the aroma. There is a good measure of fruit, along with Belgian yeast, bread, and wheat malt, however the flavors seem a bit muddied. The finish falls off considerably and is somewhat thin in body. Noticeable alcohol as well. A lingering dryness emerges at the swallow and lingers briefly afterwards.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Draft at SHPH. Pours a murky brune body with a white head. Floral fruit notes, lots of esters slip through the wheat and rye like body. Pears, apples skins, some light citrus and Belgian yeast tones. A light citrus apple rind body with a hint of cinnamon. A nice young saison.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 31, 2010
Tap at SHPH. Pours a very hazy (some more muddled than others) light woody brown - mahogany- thin mostly fading head. Aroma is earthy, yeasty, dough, wheat malts, light rye bread, toast, phenols and esters are somewhat restrained- light raisin character. Flavor is earthy, yeasty, a bit muddled, phenolic some fruits, rye, doughy wheat- some leather, with a muddled mouthfeel- yeasty and a bit prickly- not that great, but I have high hopes for this in bottle, which I will re-rate when I get around to.

Tap @ SPH. Pours a hazy brown with a thin white head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, caramel, a bit of malt, and some dark fruit detectable as well. The taste is a sublime amalgam of yeast, banana, clove, and caramel, with a wonderful dark fruit and malt finish. Beer is smooth and holds up very well to the best this brewery has ever done. I loved it, and Iím even happier I left with 2 bombers. This is a very welcome addition to the lineup of this fantastic brewery.

So I am the second rater here - love it. Had a glass of this new release at the SPH release party today, and got to shake hands with head brewer Phil Markowski too. Brown pour, no head. Pleasantly sweet aroma. A roasty, malty, and astringent brew, with lots of rye bread flavor (as Adrian was the first to point out). Very enjoyable.
