Bottle at my parents, shared with my dad. Pour is murky orange with a long-lasting white head and great lacing. Citrusy, tangy, lemongrass, herbal, straw, and herbal aroma. Taste is grass, spritzy, floral, herbal, somewhat spicy, peppercorns, and band-aid with a light bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Really well-balanced, crisp, dry, and tangy. Well-done!

Theydon_Bois (16615) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2012
Tap at the Pine Box, Seattle - 08/11/12. Hazed mid amber with a thin white head, good lacing ensues. Nose is light dungy/earthy, floral hops, pale malt, spice. Tastes of floral hops, vanilla, caramel, earthy, light spice, touch pineapple. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, bitter finish. More pale ale than saison to me!

Lubiere (12765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2012
A hazed golden saison with a thin frothy and lacing off white head. In aroma, nice spiced malt with light Brett, citrus, nice. In mouth, a nice hopped version of the 4, with floral hops, nice coriander notes, still very Belgian. On tap at brewery, Oct. 5 2012.

Gerbeer (3080) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 15, 2012
750 ml bottle. Pours a murky yellow brown with huge head and nice fine lacing. Aromas of citrus, white pepper, overripe apricots, malts, and yeast. A bit funky. Bright flavors of citrus, light brown sugar, toasted malts, tropical fruit, and yeast. Nice light bitter finish.

MrChopin (4303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Hazy chestnut with long lasting beige cream ring, oily top. Nose is tea, chocolate, lightly burnt lead bitterness, bit of estery sweetness lingering. Flavor shows more chocolate front and mid, light earth and leafy mint finish, chalky body accenting earthy dark notes, light ester drifting in and out, lightly watery in toasty end, slightly distracting. Very tight profile but a but muted and muddled.

Nickls (2356) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Bottle. Not a gusher but provides an over carbonated head that results in a huge eggshell head on a hazy burnt rust orange. Dusty yeast, slight apple, cobweb, and ripe fruits in the aroma. A little too sweet upfront , still dusty, bit apples come in, and slight ripe red fruit. Lighter soft body with nice carbonation. Could be drier, and would like to have had this fresher.

Lukaduke (2960) - Gray, Maine, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Pours a very lively hazy golden orange color witha HUGE rocky frothy head that sticks and sways for the life of the beer. On the nose its got a good kick of fresh citrus, tangerine, fresh grass, yeast and the faintest whiff in the sinus of wintergreen. The palate continues the story with much the same but a lot of malty heavy bodied notes to round out the backend and balance out the bright hop and yeast notes. Nice dry fruit mingles with some pepper on the finish.

Bottle courtesy of jcartamdg. Cheers, Jason! Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a big white head. Nose is herbs, some light fruit, some grass, and an earthy funk. Flavor follows with hints of pepper, herbs, grass, and some mild hops. Light to medium in body and just plain delicious.
