Pour is clear orange with off white ring. Nose is heavy citrus and grapefruit with a faint note of cedar and barely any Saison. Taste has more farmhouse to it with a strong grapefruit and citrus backbone. Fairly sour dry finish on a fuller syrupy body.

SpringsLicker (3502) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Not the gusher that the previous one was. Funky yeast and lemon aroma. The flavor starts with a tart bite then mellows out as the sweet fruitiness comes on. The finish is dry and fruity.

THX! To Sebletitje. 75 cl. bottle sampled. Aged on Spanish cedar wood (apparently they stuff they use for cigar boxes to age the stuff fitting) saison with coriander and ginger. Pours bright orange with a touch amber, oakish, white head. Nose is very unique, I suppose that this is Spanish cedar, its huge, sweet fruity wood, soft, juicy wood, fruity, berries, light sour tang pure wood, ginger, tad sharp, wow this is new. Picking up lots of ginger in the taste, I assume what is the cedar, stringy, juicy wood, very sharp, hard to describe, sour fruits & more-so sour berries, wild berries, orange peel, fresh grapefruit juice, hint of pear, sour pine, peel, This is a bit much to take in, I am not even too certain whether I like it or not, bit hard to tell, it is more interesting. Clean, sharp body. Interesting stuff.

75cl bottle. Thanks Sean (Melody Brewing) for hauling this one back from Philly. Couleur est orange lgrement trouble, col pais blanc-beige. Arme prsente de suite ce bouquet typique de cdre, bote cigare. Ce dernier ajoute demble de jeu une prsence boise mais galement pice qui domine la bire sans pour cela enlever toutes ses caractristiques. Entre cela, sentrechoque des notes de gingembre et de pelure de pamplemousse. Je pense aussi noter une levure belge qui serait peut tre celle de la brasserie Bruery. Palais est agrable au dpart et bien loi du profil typique dune saison type wallonne. Ici, on retrouve distinctement tous les ingrdients noncs; cdre, gingembre et pelure de pamplemousse. Le cdre donne cette dimension unique bois tirant fortement sur lpice, cette dernire pice est par ailleurs supplmente par des notes de gingembre qui viennent presque adoucir le ct pic du bois. Le pamplemousse quant lui offre une certaine fracheur en bouche pour une bire qui peut rebuter du son profil unique. Le tout est complexe, sortant des sentiers battus, avec une pointe de levure rappelant ici un style belge. Malgr ses 9% la bire reste facile boire sans pour cela tre une bire qui coupe la soif. Je ne suis pas certain quun alcool plus bas aurait bnfici de ce traitement du cdre. Au final, belle bire, mais qui reste dans le domaine du gimmicky et qui pour moi se boit une fois sans pour cela devenir une bire que je mettrait en stock chez moi. 25cl aurait t amplement suffisant pour moi.
