750 mL corked and caged bottle (6.2 ALC/VOL) shared by Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #376 for this beer.
Bottle. Poured a hazy pale with a thin white head that settled to a ring. Aromas of pears, yeast and light citrus hints. The flavor found yeast, earthiness, and light citrus. Light to medium body and dry.

2010 bottle. Almost like a gateway Saison. Good but more like a Saison light. Light on funk in all respects. Nice light mouthfeel with fairly dry finish.

Obviously, this has been aged a while. From the bottle after being uncorked there was a sour tone, which had me worried. After being in the tulip for a while it opened up to more tart fruit aromas, even pear. Nice brown amber color with a head that surprised me. Good clean and crisp palate with carbonation that didn’t seem to have diminished much. Not much sour but more tartness with yeast flavors. This was well blended and held up. Look forward to the Brett version. Thorpe429 (5122) - , Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Big thanks to yourefragile for sharing this one. Served in a Boulevard Smokestack cervoise. Pours a clear medium golden cot with a nice white head. Plenty of sticky lacing and a nice cap.
Nose has some light grains and faint pepper. A bit oxidized, but still nice. Just a touch of very light fruit in the background. Flavor adds in some semi-sweet grains and light straw. Moderate bitterness and a very crisp body. Light spice through the finish.
Probably a bit muted compared to its prime, but still quite enjoyable and easy drinking.

Bottle from a generous trader. Pours cloudy golden orange with white head. Nose and taste of lemongrass, yeast, orange zest, spicy malt, light citrus and coriander. Medium body. jandd1983 (4680) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. Pulled out of the cellar. It poured a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma was of lemon, earthy notes, a little yeast and some interesting peppery spice notes. The taste was a little dry with lemons, pepper, wood tones, some earth and a nice carbonation. Very good Saison.
