bottle: cork rocket out of this one thought it put a hole in the celling. pours with a giant pure white foamy head that sits atop a golden hay coloured body with a geyser of liny bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. aroma is a little on the sour side with great grain aroma, brigth fruits and a slight yeast.. flavour is good and wheaty with other grain flavours too, the yeast is very prominent with a slight bite of bitter and a some farmhouse funk. a great ssison.

Hazy yellow with a huge head.Deliciously spicy nose with citrus and yeast. Acidic notes as well. Flavour starts sweet with a very complex yeastiness that makes a dry finish. Good carbonation. An extraordinary saison mugabe (258) - SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2008
2004 bottle. Hazy golden with a lot of sediment. Thin head. Cellar nose, strangely watery body. Hints of cream and rubber. Coconut finish. Unexpectably bland. bumpskier (33) - Sonoma, California, USA - JUL 20, 2008
Out of the bottle the aroma of spicy yeast is amazing. I almost appreciate the aroma of this fine saison more than the flavor. Pours a slightly hazy straw golden with beautifully spritzy carbonation. Make sure to have 2 or 3 tulips ready when you pour because the carbonations forms a huge head that is retained very well. Drinks with a very dry, yet fruity flavor with semi-lingering finish. I just love Saison & this one is on the top of my list. I appreciate the bone dry & spicy aspects to this beer and wish that more American brewers produced a beer with theses characteristics as opposed to the more fruity, sweet side. Blaugies never lets me down.

My label looks nothing like the picture here, but all of the info matches properly. This is similar in profile to Dupont, but slightly sweeter and a little less bitter. Still a terrific saison. TURDFERGUSON (4068) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 14, 2008
’05 bottle shared by bstill. Thanks Brian! Nose is a little funky with some barnyard notes. Flavor is slightly spicey and dry with some mild citrus and more yeast. Good stuff. SHIG (4965) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUL 13, 2008
Bottle: Poured a hazy yellow to straw color with a fluffy white head. The aroma was barn yard with yeasts and some sour fruits. The taste is acidic, very spicy with fruit. Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - JUN 27, 2008
750 ml bottle. A very cloudy golden beer with a huge and persistent white head. The aroma is fantastic, more hoppy and yeasty than malty. There are notes of grass, herbs, hay, citric fruits and some spices. The flavour has a light sweetness and a balanced acidity. Again very grassy with some fruity and spicy notes. Medium body, lively carbonation, dry, medium lenght finish with moderate bitterness. Fantastic aroma, balanced tartness, lovely flavours, maybe a longer finish (that however is very clean) would have helped. But this is a very good stuff. kiefdog (1827) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2008
75cl bottle courtesy of markwise purchased at Knightly Spirits (Orlando, FL). Pours a dark golden color with a very thick, creamy white head that settles slowly. Smells of spice, wheat, yeast, malt. Flavor has notes of citrus and hops with a slightly dry character. Lacks depth, but a drinkable saison.
