fidelis83 (1910) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Pours a cloudy, dirty copper with a 2 -3 finger, creamy off white head. Aroma is loaded with toffee and wine braised dark fruit... wait, what, Saison? Nice tart and dark fruity esters, dark caramel, tree fruit, light pickle-y tartness and a nice earthy, spicy, heat. Flavor is loaded with caramel, sweet cereal, sweet malt, and pale toffee up front, then some toast, sweet, woody vinous notes, darker caramel, grass, earthy leafiness, nuttier, darker toffee, tree fruit, roasted nuts, roasted citrus, a bit of lemongrass, sweet, tangy citrus, a little sprout, light pine and grapefruit hard candy. Creamy to chewy body throughout with a medium, blanketing and somewhat sharp carbonation. This stuff is all over the place, I could call it an EPA, ESA, Old Ale, Barleywine, DIPA, Belgian Ale, Belgian Dubbel, BSA, or even,,, Saison, it really doesnít fit any of those descriptors all that well. However, it is pretty freaking good.

Reddish orange pour with a slight head. The nose seems a little malt forward with notes of grains, yeast, and a slight grassy, spicy hop note. Fuller bodied on the tongue than I care for in a saison with a good bit of yeast influence. Lingering sweet finish. Not bad per se, but not great either.

RussianDragon (331) - - JUN 20, 2014
22oz bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a hint of crimson. Half inch of off-white head. Aroma is hops, malt, bread, sweet fruits, esters, candies. This is clearly past the date when it should have been consumed.

bottleshare thanks to DrewFace. Pours clear, weird taste and smell. Is idly sweet and not what I was expecting.

bottleshare thanks to DexterCat. Super sweet and no funkiness at all. Kind just a honey sweetness that lingers until it becomes intolerable. Just not good.

patrick767 (3536) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 26, 2014
bottle, 500th Indiana beer, hurray! - Pours very hazy orange with a big, dense, off white head. The aroma is of resinous hops, caramel, and alcohol. It tastes of big hops bitterness, resinous hops, caramel malt, and yeast. Bitterness lingers on the palate of this... saison? hah! Honestly Iím not sure why 3 Floydís calls it one. I like the beer, itís not great but itís very good, but Iíd put it in the more catch-all category American Strong Ale.

Pyrmir (3271) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle at mikkeller stefans, thanks for sharing, norwegian buddies! Murky amber with off white head. Aroma sweet and malty; of smoke, caramel, marmalade, yeast and dry dust notes. Taste is more american barley wine than saison, sweet, caramel, alcohol, marmalade, yeast, plus some spicy dry saison notes.

finol (2110) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle at Mikkeller & Friends. Orderd it since I was in the mood for a hoppy Saison. This was not at all what I expected. Tasted more like an old US Barley wine. Taste of red berries, old hops and some butter. Still a stable brew though.

hirigalzkar (2265) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle. Is this really a saison? It actually tastes somewhat like a barley wine with its buttery notes and strong alcohol. Also notes of cookies, rye, orange and roses. Kind of growed on me after the shock from the first sip.

Livendadream (104) - New Mexico, USA - MAY 4, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2014 Blt(cellared over 6 months) pours cystal clear, golden bronze,big thick creamy off white head that lingers forever leaving wicked lace on glass. Smells of brown sugar, biscuit, dried prunes,raisin brand cereal,earth,booze, faint orange and a hint of pepper. Tastes of sweet caramel malts,dates,raisins, graham crackers, torbinado sugar, earthy hops and pepper.Medium body,thick texture,creamy mouthfeel, lively carbonation, and a tingly,spicy,lightly bitter finish. Wow! I have not had alot of saisons,but this does not taste like any I have ever had. I taste no barnyard or funk. I aged this hoping it would get funkier,unfortunately no luck and I killed the dry hop flavor.This ale is good but it is not a saison. Reminds me of a winter warmer???? Idk. Anyway its tasty and alot of different flavors going on here but not spectacular.

blklab2007 (1941) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle poured a copper amber color with a coating of white head. Aroma has grains, resinous hops, yeast, and fruit. Mouth feel is medium light and the carbonation on the lower side. Flavor brings in some odd malt, bitter resinous hops, rye, yeast, and some fruit. Such an odd combination of things and certainly not like any Saison I have ever tried.
