DuffMan (7138) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2012
Bottle, shared with Brian. Medium orange amber colour with a poorly retaining off white head. Aroma is quite fruity, sweet peach, some citrus. Flavour is sweet, approaching syrupy, which right away puts me off if you’re calling this a saison. I think the hop oils have faded here because there is weak citrus and stonefruits on the palate, but very little bitterness. The finish is brief and dry and gone. No spiciness or yeast character anywhere. This was just okay for me, but to be fair, I’m pretty sure it would be a totally different drinking experience if it were fresh.

reebtogi (4437) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 13, 2012
750ml capped bottle pours a cloudy golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some sporadic lacing on the glass. Aroma is pleasant with some grass and citrus. Taste is citrusy with some grass and a citrusy component and some light fruitiness. Light to medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Not the best of the Saison family, but still an appreciable brew.

yngwie (14338) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle, 75cl. A gusher, producing a brownish off-white head looking like it’s sprinkled with cinnamon. Murky, dark golden body with lots of floaties. The aroma is wonderful, with lots of citrus and pine cones, some maltyness in the back. It’s lighlty sourish on the palate, dry and effervescent. Citrusy, piney hops and some yeast, caramel maltyness too. Overall, a quite decent beer, but it’s completely hopeless to add hops to the bottle, which it seems they’ve done. The aroma is lovely, the appearance just redicilous. 111105
