This tastes exactly like Innstadt Passauer Weiße Hefe Naturtrüb only a little more fizz. Big honey flavor. Tastes old. Koelschtrinker (22078) - KÃ¶ln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
Fruchtiger, leicht hefiger, lecker hopfiger Geruch. Hopfiger Antrunk, leicht malziger Unterton. Würziger Mittelteil mit leichter Tendenz ins Süße, vor allem ist es hier aber wässrig. Im Nachgeschmack wird das Bier malziger und deutlich schwerer, lichtet sich dann aber merklich. Fruchtig ist das Bier ab und an auch, dies ist aber vernachlässigbar.

Nose is heavy green apple, then medium saaz, rye, feel is little oily, carb is low, taste is early sweet cake almost doughy, then a weak sweet malt note and mediumbitter hoppy finish Svesse (8970) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2011
(Bottle, Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm) Amber colour, slightly hazy, with brief frothy beige head. Malty, spicy nose with dried fruit, hints of yeast and cinnamon, and some earthy/woody aromas. Malty, slightly fruity taste with notes of dark bread, dried fruit, yeast, spicy hints of nutmeg and cinnamon. Mild bitterness in a spicy finish. Medium body, fairly sweet. Compared to most saisons it’s more spicy and sweet than grassy and bitter. Still, a nice beer. goozen (4178) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 12, 2011
Bottle with swing-top 0,33ltr: Hazy amber with an some kind of fruity taste, i miss the typical farmlike appearance. If this brew have that farmlike stuff, than it will got more points from me.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Slightly tart and slightly bitter. Crisp palate. dry. Refreshing.
13.2 ounce swing-top bottle pours a murky orange/brown body with a lot of "floaties" in suspension. Small offwhite head leaves some patchy lace. Aroma has caramel, toffee, green apples, herbal hops, and nutmeg. Medium body is undercarbonated and a bit syrupy. Taste has an overabundance of caramel sweetness. Herbal hop bitterness is present but struggles to balance. Dark fruits add even more sweetness. Becomes cloying and difficult to finish. Not at all refreshing or enjoyable, even when granting all appropriate latitude to the style. hirigalzkar (3294) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2010
Bottle. First of all, Saison 2000 is a really good name for a beer. This mysterious brew pours hazy orange with a small white head. It is heavy carbonated, which makes the head disappear really fast. It also makes this beers mouthfeel remind me of sparkiling water (in a rather good way for this kind of highly drinkable refresher). The aroma is yeasty and sweet. The taste is kind of strange with its vegtable notes (pumpkin) and spices (cinnamon, clove). Lots of crystal malt notes. Small earthy bitterness in the finish. This beer could only come from Belgium and I love it for what it is. I am really becoming a fan of this Ellezelloise brewery! Suttree (6541) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 13, 2010
Wow, this has been the most depressing sampling session ever - this is my third sub 3 beer in a row. It’s boozy and very heavy - not what I consider saison like at all. Caramel, some spicy notes, but really just too heavy. Body is almost like a Dubbel or something. tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - DEC 5, 2010
33 cL bottle, like the one nearbeer described. Pours a light brown with fizzy off-white head. The aroma is light vanilla and toffee with a subtle fruity bacterial note and a little bit of hay. The flavor is kind of a hodge-podge of flavors without much harmony... raisin and prune, hint of vanilla, slight sour cherry, some hay, and a bit of woodiness. There is a strange seltzer quality to the finish. I liked this at first, but after several sips it is working its way toward mediocrity.
