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 (4528) - 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...

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 (5133) - 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.

Pours hazy amber with a nice, lasting white head. Smells of hay, perfumy, citrus, sage, light wheat, crisp. Tastes of dry malt, light pepper, perfumy, grassy, some tea on the finish.

Thanks to JoeMcPhee for the bottle - I have been sitting on this for a while, but I just couldnít wait any longer to try it - very effervescent pour - hazy straw color - moderate head of large, loose bubbles - dusty, earthy, lightly funky aroma - some dry, biscuity maltiness, spicy hops, light phenols, a little bit of tangy citrus way in the back - carbonation is full in the mouth and a wee bit abrasive - quite dry, flinty, with dusty yeast and crackery malts - a slight tangy, wheaty undercurrent throughout - faint earthy character - the spiciness of the New Zealand hops is very pronounced but works well with the dryness - decent all around, but not the home run I was hoping for - a little rough around the edges.
