BMan1113VR (7820) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 9, 2012
Green bottle (lots of pressure behind the cork). Pours with a hazed golden yellow hue with a very massive white head that leaves great lace. Aromas are strongly farmhouse, musty, aggressive phenols, pepper, mild clove, sandalwood, earthy, spicy hops, with light but sharp esters. Smells authentically belgian. Spicy, thistle, hops. Light citric acidity. Flavors show mild malt sweetness, spicy, hops, some tart yeast, nettles, phenols, herbal hop notes, quite dry with mild esters. Chestnuts. Pretty straight forward beer. Very lively bubbles, mildly tart and bone dry.

jredmond (5209) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle, and at $5.99 I believe the cheapest bottle I’ve ever had with a cork. Pours a deep, deep hazy orange body with nice thick white lacing. Aroma is funky, tea, lightly earthy, and weird baby food. Mouthfeel is medium, smooth with notes of tea, bitter grass, floral, and a bit earthy funk. Nice.

Pours hazy gold into a tulip. Bright white head with little retention recedes to hug rim leaving spot lacing. Sweet caramel, toast and honey aromas. Crisp with sweet honey and citrus upfront turning to mild earthy resin in the lasting finish.

Aml42000 (622) - Washington, USA - MAR 11, 2012

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - MAR 5, 2012
(375 ml from Oak Street Provisions) Gold/light bronze body with some haze. Tall, lumpy off-white head. Aroma of yeast and grain. Mouthfeel smooth, medium-full. Flavor is yeasty, bready (kind of) but the spelt gives it a unique kind of bready/grainy-ness. Mild, interesting.

drewbeerme (3879) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Draft a bad apple. Pours hazed and golden with soapy white head. Aroma is rather spicy white peppercorn and yeast, honey with a real floral hopping. Flavors are again rather spicy but the honey meets it well, white pepper up front but a sweet floral and honey middle, a bit phenolic and spicy in a long finish. Pretty tasty saison, only issues really is the body, it’s thin and the feel is flabby.
