Thanks to Ian for smuggling this back from Minnesota. Pours a nice copper color with thick white head. Aroma is belgian spice and black pepper. Hoppy bite in the taste, very smooth going down with a slight bitterness in the aftertaste. A unique ale that is just wonderful.

harrisoni (13217) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2007
Can at Chris_o Shindig. Gold, lasting beige head. Nice peachy fruit. Very distinctive hit of hop. Very strong flavours, good biting hop on end. Tasty. Dry, hoppy. Harsh. A bit like De Ranke XX Bitter.

WallyWalrus (205) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 9, 2007
On tap at Macís Industrial Bar. Drew a cloudy amber with a good head. Smell was very crisp and hoppy with some more yeasty and earthy notes. Taste was medium-bodied with initially sweet notes of honey and cream giving way to a spicier, hoppier finish with a very lingering mildly bitter aftertaste. A delightfully unique ale worth your time.

Can@chris_o. Caramel, raisin and light skunky aroma. Yellow color, white head, good lace. Malty, nast bitterness, light herbal. Feels pasteurized and probably is.

sloth (2447) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - AUG 8, 2007
Small offwhite head that,s short lived. Lacing is minimal at best. Hazy yellow orange color. Nose is yeasty, light breadiness, black pepper, light fruit and co2 notes. Body is lightly medium with an effervescent carbonation and an unfortunate astringency. Lightly sweet toasty malts, black pepper and faint fruit notes are all kinda pushed aside by the astringent notes. Finish is dry, peppery, metallic and astringent. Bummer! Props to footbalm for the CAN! Thanks Eric!

Canned - Chris O shindig 2007 - A dark gold coloured beer with a whitish head. Must admit I didnít get any saison character at all. Seemed like a well brewed IPA to me. Nice fruity piney hops all through. Enjoyed it a lot, just a bit confusing.

Thanks to toncatcher for sharing. Wow, lots of pepper in the taste. I had a really tough time drinking this one. Couldnít finish it because it made me want to sneeze. Not reall what I thought a saison should taste like.

A Mes rate: Can at Chris Oís Shindig. Canít believe I am drinking a decent beer from a can but decent it is. Golden colour with a reasonable head. Hoppy aroma with plenty of fruit. Malty flavour with plenty of citric hops. Bitter finish. Straight down the line but pretty good.
