Thanks to Dr. Bill for this 750ml bottle. Itís a clear golden pour with an enormous white, meringue-like, head. The aroma is a bit dusty with some citrus notes. the flavor is smooth and clean.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2010
750ml, gold foil wrapped bottle from grape & gourmet and once upon a vine southside. pours a gorgeous, hazy yet bright orange gold with a thick, creamy, off-white head and sticky lacing. aroma is great with bright, fresh, spicy herbs, tart pears, and lemon zest backed by sweet hints of peach, funky yeast, and dry, dusty florals. flavor is excellent as well, on the drier, sweeter side of saisons with funky, biscuity yeast, pears, apricot, and lemon peel up front backed wheat crackers, sage, and spicy white pepper with a dry, grassy ending. palate is medium bodied, very crisp, and very refreshing with prickly carbonation and a lingering, dry, fruity finish. overall, an excellent and unique saison. looking forward to trying more beers from these guys.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2010
Bottle@TastingSession. Citrus, fruity aroma with hints of grass and herbs. Pale golden, off-white head, good lace. Sweetish, light bitter, light herbal. Refreshing and hoppy.

obguthr (4603) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Strong pear and funk aroma with grass and peach accents. Hazy amber, effervescent, thick yellowish lacing head. Funky and herbal on the front end with pear at midpalate. Rosemary, thistle, and cedar notes are prevalent throughout. Finishes with pale malt. Alcohol is detectable but nicely complimentary. This is certainly a different kind of saison, but IMVHO, one of the absolute best. Nearly perfect!

RyanMM (413) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Spicy, sour, tart, fruity nose. Palate is slightly fruity, slightly sour, with a spicy finish. Pretty darn good.

From sample pour at local December 2010 tasting.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Bottle from Binnyís South Loop. Pours and attractive and mostly clear orantey bronze. Huge effervescent head. Nose is dusty, slightly phenolic. Some rubber notes then spicy aromatics. Hops are quite present as well. Some sweet grain notes as well. Hmmm. On taste, there is straw, a slight tart note, but mostly phenols. Pleasant bitterness. This is kind of a mess and Iím not sure why itís so highly rated...

Vaiz (3839) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2010
Aroma is fruity, spicy, some Belgian hops and some alcohol. Flavor is slightly sour, somewhat hoppy bitter and somewhat chemical. Thick body and lively carbonation. Ok brew.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2010 Bottle @ meeting. Aroma is fruity, light swamp/ feet, some spice. Flavour is thin, fruity, malty, some spice. Good brew, just not very interesting.

Boutip (5185) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2010
Bottle: Poured a bright light orangey color ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and great lacing. Aroma consists of fruity ester with dry floral notes form the hops with some light funky yeast notes also discernable. Taste is also a nice mix between some funky notes with floral hops and dry aftertaste. I thought the malt bill was great if maybe a tad too sweet for my own taste. Body was full for style with great carbonation and no signs of alcohol. Very well brewed and something I would seek again fro sure.
