omhper (18972) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2008
Bottled, thanks Bov! Cloudy golden, airy head. Perfumy hoppy spicy nose. Lies rounded, lively and spritzy in the mouth. Estery flavour of winegum mixed cith citric hops. Intensive but in superb balance. Combines a perfect saison with an IPA, kind of what many Belgian brewers been trying to do, but this art is now perfected in Switzerland instead.

Bov (9077) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 1, 2007
sampled at the Solothurner Biertage 2007 - cloudy dark orange colour with a solid creamy foam and a nice lace; very aromatic hoppiness, grapefruity, perfumy with notes of cream; medium-bodied, robust late bitterness, very dry and bitter, long finish - a wonderful beer

puzzl (3240) - New York, New York, USA - APR 1, 2010
Bottle from Paul. Aroma bursts with fresh flowers, tobacco, mint, rosemary, peppercorn. Everything I love about saison. Big, bright carbonation, with a flavor of guava, strawberry, horseblanket, some definite funk. A touch of sweetness in the flavor balances things out. Very nice!

rederic (2890) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 19, 2007
Sampled at the Mondial, hazy honey golden hue, with a rocky white head, nice nose of yeasty fruitiness, with flowery bouquet accent, some hops grassiness, with a citrus note, and a faint spiciness in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, fruity floral character, with kind of mimosa flowery accent, with a mild citrusy tartness, a faint hop leafiness, with a hint of black pepper spiciness, leading towards a zesty fruity, hop bittering finish.

Marsiblursi (2985) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2008
(Bottle, thanks omhper!) Pours hazy golden amber with a big white head. The aroma is of citric orange-like hops up front alongside some floral/perfumey and grassy notes. Yeasty, ester-ish fruity and subtle spicy with just a whisper of coriander, white pepper and nutmeg. Undertones of toasted white bread and vanilla ice cream. Light woody. The flavour is floral, grassy and citric hoppy, light to medium malty, light yeasty and light acidic. Medium bitter and light sweet but otherwise quite dusty and dry. Some fruitiness in the background. The mouthfeel is clean and light crisp. Medium bodied. Very nice.

Glouglouburp (5929) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2007
Slightly cloudy golden-copper with a medium off-white head. Fruity yeast and citrusy hops on the nose. This one seems to be built on the same foundation as their equally excellent Récolte Saison with the addition of a lot of hops essence. This adds juicy citrus and orange flavours, a pleasant tartness and a mild juicy bitterness but crushes the yeast flavours. Like the Récolte this is not an intense beer, it is a refined and delicate beer that can be drunk on a daily basis. I’m not sure I understand why it is classified as an IPA. Yes it is hoppy but an unaware North-American buying this european IPA will be as unsettled as an unaware North-American buying a ticket for an european football game.

thebeertourist (4667) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 29, 2008
75 cl bottle (with just about 33 cl left after turbulent flight). Poured cloudy orange with a medium head. Complex piney hop nose as well as sour fruit. Sour fruit flavours gradually giving way to a good bitter finish. An impressive Swiss take on a Belgian beer style.

2013-06-29, draught at Pibar, Lausanne, 8-4-8-4-16=40
Cloudy orange-amber color with compact head. Very nice aroma of West Coast hops, fresh, fruity. Dynamic mouthfeel, with a good malt and toffee flavor, semi sweet; some dust, prominent spiciness from the yeast, good bitterness level, with plenty of hop fruitiness.
Dirty but excellent.

2010-01-03, bottle, 8-5-7-3-16=39
Hazy orange-amber color; nice creamy head, persistent. Despite having been stored in good conditions for a few months, the aroma shows not only the expected Saison spices, but also a light suspicious sourness. Good malt flavor and some caramel; the hop is very fruity, a wonderful signature; just after come the spices and unfortunately the light sourness, that leaves a dry mouthfeel too. Correct bitterness.
Undoubtly good and interesting, but probably this bottle is a bit spoiled.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2010
750 ml bottle thanks to Dany! Pours a hazy deep copper- bright orange with a nice fluffy cloudy head- Nice... Aroma is earthy, musty, crackery malts behind a nice floral and flowery hoppiness, some spicy hops, and light citrus notes as well - also some slight lime-zest? Flavor is slightly tart, earthy, spicy, peppery, citrus hops, lime zest, orange blossom honey, light sweetness, flowery earth hops, crisp clean malts and a slight tart finish keeps this easy drinking- finishes fairly dry as well. Nice!

tkrjukoff (3902) - SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2010
Pours hazy orange with very small off white head. Yeasty, citrus fruity (orange) and hoppy aroma with notes of spices. Flavor is very citric fruity (orange again) and yeasty with nice tartness. Acidy crisp and fruity on palate. finishes refreshingly fruity with nice touch of hops.
