The Etruscan (648) - Tuscany, - SEP 9, 2013
White foamy full lasting head. Golden cloudy colour. Aroma is moderately hoppy, fruity with citrus, apple, pear and yeasty notes. Flavor is malty, fruity with green apricot and apple tones, slightly sour, ending in a moderately fruity finish. Light bodied.

probstblueribbon (3784) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 4, 2016
33 cl bottle from LCBO online, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. Light gusher.

App.: Cloudy light straw with a decent white froth. Aroma: Quite zesty, zippy and citrusy, peppery, some funk/wild character, light yeast/bread dough, plucky! Palate: Medium-ish body, full, smooth carbonation. Flav.: More malt and yeast character to round out the sharper notes of citrus, funk and spice, a little estery as well; dry with light to moderate bitterness and light tang, with a citrus and bread dough finish.

Interesting. Not my favourite Saison.

Tognetta (803) - So Paulo, BRAZIL - OCT 25, 2016
Amarelo claro de leve turbidez, espuma branca de pouca formao e persistncia. Aroma mais ctrico, frutado, manga, lupulada. Paladar de leve dulor e amargor bem balanceado, final mais seco, mdia persistncia. Corpo leve e mdia carbonatao.

Ernest (7467) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 23, 2016
Bottle (batch 2). Head is initially large, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cracker), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of lemon juice, oak sour apple, hints of pineapple and band-aid. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Effectively a sour ale, and not an especially exciting one. Disappointing.

3fourths (9265) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 23, 2016
Bottle, batch 2. Bright aroma impression is lemon zest, lemon juice, perfume, concrete-musty brett, faint grass-like hoppiness. Medium bodied, tart, lightly sweet, gelatinous-filmy-slick in the mouth, tasting yeasty, musty, and sour. Bland, tart, and sour with some quiet alcohol heat.

fiery_1 (470) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2016
650ml bottle, pours and hazy tan. Nose is very yeasty and brett. Flavour of spiciness, brett, and pale malts. A nice saison.

fiulijn (19824) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 13, 2016
Bottle from Denman, batch 1, year 2012, 4 years old, bottle 1124 of 2400
The bottle is a slow gusher. Nice aroma, moderately funky, quite true Saison, dry, spicy, with an evident orange peel character. Dry, a bit too much carbonated, it has a good blend of spicy and orange peel character, and astringent final.
Nice.

Oakes (16088) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 13, 2016
Hazy and pale. Thin head. The aroma is yeasty, with light fruitiness from the brett, a touch of gooseberry, salmonberry, again with the nice yeast spiciness and a hint of pale malt. Complex, a very good saison.

mcberko (15404) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 13, 2016
750mL bottle, pours a hazy dull golden yellow with a large white head. Aroma is fairly funky, with light barnyard funk, rustic farmhouse notes, lots of yeast, and some hay. Flavour is quite yeasty, with subdued funk and lots of rustic farmhouse yeast. Much less funky and much more rustic than the nose suggests. Medium carbonation, with a nice spritziness. Really good.

lupulist (324) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 13, 2016
2012 bottle, batch 1. A real gusher. Aroma of Brett and yeasty spiciness. Tastes surprisingly tame, with moderate barnyard funk and fairly high effervesence. Nice!
