Dark chestnut colored ale with a nice steady off-white head. Aroma is all about finesse, loads of blossoms and spring flowers. The mouth-feel is refined, playful and complex with Saison-like peppery flavors. Soft nutty after taste with a bite."

Pours brown with a good egg coloured head. Aroma is sweet, fruity (banana) and spices (pepper, coriander) Not very balanced, lots of alcohol. Also some bitterness in the end. Feels confused and a bit of a let down for me.

egajdzis (6004) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2011
Hazy brown color with a small, creamy, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark fruits, spices, clove, banana, a bit of cocoa, and light alcohol. Taste of spices, caramel malts, cocoa, clove, nuts, banana, bread, and light alcohol in the finish.

Bottle brought to the first Idar-Oberstein, Germany local tasting. It really is chestnut colored. Nice pine and cotton candy aroma. Taste is cocoa, coffee grounds, pine resin. Very nice stuff.

Bottle at First German Ratebeer gathering at Idar Oberstein courtesy of Travlr. Chocolate malt and pine aroma. Cloudy brown color with moderate head. Sweet chocolate toffee malt and moderately bitter pine hops flavor. Excellent blending. Spectacular.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 22, 2011
330ml bottle. It’s a really murky pour out of the bottle and settles in as a ruddy brown. Head is creamy and hangs on for a while with a bit of lacing. Aroma is sweet and floral, as in flowers, not floral hops. In addition to the perfume-like aromas, there is a light chocolate malts aroma and some spicy Belgian yeast. The taste has an interesting herbal kick up front, some flowers with cinnamon and other spices mixed in. The malts are in control underneath but the finish brings back the bitter herbal flavors, almost medicinal in character. The mouthfeel is really nice, thick and creamy for a saison with strong carbonation. Overall, it’s another really creative brew from Stillwater, but it’s not nearly as good as A Saison Darkly, which I really enjoyed. The spices and herbs bring a nice complexity but don’t exactly come together for me. Still tasty.

Thanks to Chris for this one... I can tell De Struise did not have much of a hand in brewing this...dirty dark brown with a light tan head... nose of floral wheat with tons of banana... the taste more spice with a banana backbone... wouldn’t have again

Cybercat (4984) - Georgia, USA - APR 20, 2011
Strong aroma is wheaty and yeasty with a firm hint of caramel and a touch of hops. It pours an inviting opaque chocolate brown with a slim pale head. Flavor is yeasty, wheaty and malty and has an undertone of caramel, hoppy and nutty hints, and a fairly strong alcohol nip. Texture is smooth, edgy and minimally fizzy. Finish has a whisper of sweetness within the alcohol bite.

Ughsmash (7507) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 16, 2011
Thanks to Armin for bringing the bottle! Poured deep raspberry brown with a well-retained, sticky cap of beige head. The aroma picked up a rich blend of darker fruits, with berries leading.. more fruity and dusty Belgian yeast backed it up.. just a touch of biscuits and chocolate beneath.. a deep, brooding warmth drove it. The flavor found more berries, with floral bitterness and peppery notes accenting.. more tart floral and oaky accents toward the back.. balance was entirely solid, and I like the was it dried out the back.. tasty stuff. Medium-bodied, but with a slightly heavier feel on the palate.. almost sugary at times, but the balance held.. solid brew.

Pours hazy reddish brown, nice white head. Aroma has notes of pepper, berry, dark fruit, some oak. Taste is pepper, some biscuit, dark fruit with bitter berry, some vanilla. Very interesting.

madvike (3191) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 15, 2011
Bottle - Dark murky brown pour with a nice foamy light tan head. Light floral notes, cardamon, lemongrass, raisins, a touch of cinnamon. There’s a hefty amount of sweet, bready maltiness, too, with a bit of spice. Big malty flavor, dry and yeasty. Finishes with lightly sweet rye bread, sharp grassy/herbal hops, menthol, and a bit of heat. Smooth, light carbonation and a jmedium body. It’s an interesting conglomeration of spices and floral notes, but in the end I wish it wasn’t so sweet and malty.
