Hah. loved the description. Looked a little deceiving as to what was really in the can. Somewhat spicy scent and bite in the taste. Nothing really amazing, but a good tasting breaker or something to just have and enjoy. Wish it was easier to get more of this here.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 23, 2007
Can- Pours a slightly hazy golden color, white foamy head. Nose is beautiful, hard to believe this came out of a can. Straw, earthy, some black pepper comes through, wonderful nose. Soft on the palate, spicy, good ester charachter. Saison in the can, very cool, very very cool.

blankboy (6572) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2007
Can shared with and courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a hazy orange-amber with an average size somewhat-lasting creamy off-white head. Very nice aroma of yeast, lots of fruit (peaches and more), honey, pepper and other spices -- quite impressive really. Flavourís yeasty and spicy along with some fruit and honey to sweeten it and has a big bitter finish. HogTownHarry mentions "almost a charred linger" and Iím getting that as well. Medium bodied plus. Iím not the biggest Saison fan but I love this! Surly never disappoints.

isnus (7) - USA - OCT 12, 2007 does not count
Hazy and smells great. Very fizzy, kind of dry. The taste left me somewhat disappointed, I was expecting more coriander flavor. Itís a good beer, but for the price Surly runs, I would rather grab a delirum tremens or something.

HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2007
Can (16oz). Shared with blankboy, my can courtesy of Oakbluff. Saison in a can - well why the hell not. Hazy medium-deep amber pour with a large lasting creamy-frothy beige head. Well, smells like a saison - very yeasty, light herbal hops, almost hefeweizen fruit sweetness, I detected a bit of banana bread in there. The taste is solid heavy yeast saison, so much yeast and spice itís quite pungently bitter, lots of very heavily roasted malt backing it up, and not much fruit - almost a charred linger. Thick body, very astringent with the spice, long raw spice (cinnamon? nutmeg? allspice?) bitter finish. Damn thatís good.
