ClubGonzo (4108) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a hazy light amber body with a huge bubbly off-white head. Nose is peppery rye tones, straw, nougat, caramel and hints of saison yeast, sugary esters and hints of apple cores and toffee. Taste is rye, white pepper, grains, caramel, saison esters and hints of straw and nougat. Medium body, high carbonation. Not bad, very rye-ish in profile but quite enjoyable.

Nische (760) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2014
Pours semi clear amber-orange with thick froathy white head and amazing lacing. Aroma: bretts, rye, berries, hops, saison yeast. Taste: fruits, bretts, bubblegum, alcohol, hops. Balance is near perfect. Original brew.

Hell yes. Nighttime rye saison. This is exactly what a rye saison should be. Very rustic coarse grain and raw. Could use a tad more rye. .. but that is just my opinion. An excellent brew.

ericdevin (824) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Bottle from Belmont Station, Portland. Pours a golden amber, lots of off white head. Aroma slight, citrus, not much Brett, coppery notes of funk. Body light and fluffy, but a slight booziness lingers a la most golden ales. Fine, but slightly disappointing compared to some other Bruery stuff.

Drank it with a friend and really don’t remember it very well...remember enjoying it, but not being blown away...was expecting more brett tartness so probably knocked it down unfairly based on what I was hoping for. Still enjoyed it!

Lukaduke (2243) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Pours a medium golden color with three finger of thick white foam. Nose is interesting white pepper, nutmeg, sage, musty grain, rye spice, stale grass. Palate follows with more sweetness than expected... big doughy mouthfeel with lots of flavors but not a whole lot of balance. Yeast esters, apricot, musky barnyard notes and lots of rye spice that lead into a heavy earthy bitterness. Complex yet unrefined.

zvikar (3492) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - APR 16, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Yoav. Pours yellow to orange hazy with a small head, aroma is spicy and sweet and fresh, flavor is spicy with alcohol, nutmeg, nuts, carbonated, medium bodied.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - APR 2, 2014
A bit spicy, oaky and taught, but doesn’t give too much and is a tad cloying. Apple pie, pecan and lemon with a whiff of funk. Solid if uninspired.

swesson (238) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Poured from a bomber. Cloudy, golden body. Thin white head. Smells of yeasty, malty, clove goodness. Tastes sweet, but not as sweet as a normal saison. Lacing all the way down my pint glass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
