UPDATED: FEB 27, 2008 Big thanks to oakbluff for this one! Poured from a 16oz. can. Paired it with pizza. Aroma: Nice floral & light fruit aroma Appearance: Hazy, amber body with good carbonation. Medium-sized head that grows bigger as i near the end of the pour. Nice & thick. Flavor: Hits you with a bouquet of dried fruit flavor (apricot?) with a slightly mild bitter taste. Palate: The alcohol is nicely blended with the feel, bitter taste recedes & spicy flavor comes to the fore. Overall: It goes down very well & i love the taste! I wouldn’t necessarily have one right after this one though, but would definitely have it again for sure. It gives a sense that i’m not sure how to describe. Like i should be in a nice cottage in the country in front on a fireplace instead of a city. Definitely a go-to winter snowstorm brew.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2008
16 oz can, thanks to iowaherkeye! Pours a cloudy bright orange with a lively carbonation and a nice tight sticky white head and good lace. Aroma is spicy floral and moderately fruity- typical belgain saison yeast, but slghtly skewed on the fruity ester side with some ogange zest- tons of green fresh styrian hops as well. flavor is smooth, fresh bready malts, green herbal hops- good earthy character to the styrians, more orange and mango fruits, some black peppery yeasty spiciness and tons of green earthy styrians in the end for a good bitterness. Seriously smooth and easy to drink. Nice Saison.

pepperford (115) - robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Hazy light orange color with a good carbinated head. Lots of good spice and hops, with a citrus crispness to it. A very good summer on the porch beer.

MiP (14656) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2008
Can, 6.5%. Thanks, yespr. Weak caramelly aroma with a little rag. Hazy greyish copper colour. Small head. The flavour has a little cardboard and some roughness from either the alcohol or the hops. Gets more fruity as it warms. Good mouthfeel. Tastes of more than its ABV.

riversideAK (5944) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Can from Ughsmash. Belgian yeast, clove, a touch of peach and melon round out the aroma. Pours a hazy orange golden with a nice 1 finger thick head. Soft fruit flavors and spices are finished with a nice peppery bitterness to create a crisp and highly sessionable, not to mention, flavorful ale. Body seems rather light, while carbonation is medium to high. A good beer.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 16, 2008
Can from Decaturstevo. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Very nice belgian funk aroma, with some peach and melon sweetness blending in. Medium bodied with a soft and slightly spritzy belgian texture. Flavor of belgian pale malts, honey, and a hint of lemon. Mid palate is dry with a decent european herbal bitterness (almost like a hoppy czech pilsner) that carries into the finish. Finish gets thinner in texture with some chalkiness. An interesting take on a Saison, and enjoyable.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2008
Can. Little hazy golden colour with a nice head. Aroma of hops, yeast and spices. Flavour of yeast, wheat and little bitter. Ends up quite dry at the end.

Kinz (3625) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2008
Can courtesy of Secret Santa, thanks! Medium very slightly hazy gold, slight head. Aroma of black pepper and a bit of honey, pepper and spice notes heading but not quite getting towards pungent. Flavor wa surprisingly complex, with the black pepper and honey from the nose evident, but quickly moving into a yeast and hop dominated finish that included some spiciness, apricot, and a hint of tropical fruit. At the very end, the faintest hint of musky sweat. I was initially afraid that the pepper would overwhelm things, but it was just kept in check. Nicely done, one of the better American saisons I’ve had.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2007
Can shared by artusory. Slightly hazy straw body, thin off-white head. Bready nose, earthy and chalky, with light floral spice. Potent, punchy spice body, floral, with fennel and bitter notes, potpourri, and light bready malt. No soft, sweet, flabby malt heaviness here. Robust, aggressive, and spartan.

antisnobJP (275) - St. Michael, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2007
Can. Brilliant gold with a coarse white head. Bold spicy yeast aroma with a hint of fruit and old books found in the basement. Citrusy sweet flavor that fades to a dry peppery spiciness with some coriander and then a little sweetness comes back at the end. Seems as if it should be so drinkable and yet I don’t find that to be true. Oh well, a beer can be well made and still not be for everyone.
