COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Using Belgian pilsen malt and Belgian candi sugar we’ve brewed a classic pale ale. Hints of coriander and orange make this a refreshing, effervescent ale.

didn’t know it was reformulated in 2009. when this was at it’s best it was toasted white bread with the appropriate Belgian ale spice of coriander. sweet with caramel and citrus fruit and a almost moderate body and low vegetable character.

SSKD814 (854) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2010
A- nice cloudy amber/yellow with fluffy white head that fades to a pretty strange lacing that looks almost like curdles floating around on the top. S-kinda gross. very macro-malty. T- nice yeasty taste with hints of citrus; very mild hop afterbite. P- light carbonation with light body...very smooth. nice. O- Saison by definition is supposed to be drinkable and this beer sure is. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-13-2007 17:42:59

mabel (5371) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2008
[1277-20080410] 355mL bottle. Floral toasted yeast aroma with a mild hint of off-ness. Clear, medium yellow body with a quick white bubbly head. Sweet flower petals flavour is toasted with a bit of vegetable and a sweet aftertaste. Light body is a bit thin. Fair, boring.

Overheard: "Smells a little like toast in all of them... Toast Juice!"

Heathen (1444) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 7, 2008
THOUGHTS: Really nice. Especially when it warmed up. I don’t know why I tasted and smelled vanilla, where no one else seemed to, but I did and that made it even better. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a light orange or dark yellow with tiny body particles of average thickness and a very small, fizzy, off-white head that mostly diminished. The aroma was light citrus hops, light doughy yeast and vanilla. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly acidic; while the finish was heavily acidic and very sour with an average duration. there was citrus, slight vanilla and a little funk then a ton of sour lime. the light to medium body was watery then dry with tingly carbonation and a moderate to heavy astringent finish.

Gorbalev (2895) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2008
Bottle at the no Greg tasting, courtesy of, of course, Greg, shared with Hogtown Harry, Blankboy, Jerc, and Mabel, Mild malt aroma - not much else.Medium to light yellow, small white head. Really bland taste - mild malt, somewhat sweet. What a bland bland beer - no saison type characteristics at all here. Not good.

Bottle (12oz) shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev, jerc & mabel -- courtesy of GregClow. Pours a hazy pale yellow with an average size diminishing white head. Aroma of toast. Yup, simply toast. Flavour’s also of toast along with vegetal notes and caramel malt. Light to average bodied. i didn’t like this at all.
