notalush (5796) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2009
GABF2009 - one of the better saisons of the evening - a lovely beer with tons of aromatic spices and a zesty, peppery finish - light, crisp, effervescent, just like I like my saisons - dry, crackery maltiness - soft herbal notes that work really well with those dry malts - just the right amount of peppery heat in the finish to make things interesting - very nice.

60minuteman (1505) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2017
Pours a murky deep orange with bits of lace. Peppercorns mainly upfront. I cant distinguish between the colors but its pretty spicy. Some heat, yeast, wheat and floral backed with orange peel and some booze. White wine maybe, maybe rum.

Pretty good. Not too spicy or peppery. Fruity aroma. Fruity flavor and a waxy palate.

furthur (1081) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - SEP 18, 2016
Bottle, light amber beer, foamy white head. Aroma ginger, black pepper, malt. Taste is malt, honey, black pepper. This is quite sweet through the middle, though itndoesnalmostnget dry at the finish. Palate is fairly heavy for a saison. In fact, not sure this is a saison, its so sweet, and the pepper flavor is quite strong.

stevoj (4447) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Bottle from Brewers Haven. Orange golden body with small white airy head. Peppercorns noticeable in the aroma, other softer fruity notes. Taste brings the pears out more, but the spices linger on the tongue. Overall, very well rounded, nice Saison base with perfect accents from the fruit and spice. Another pleasant surprise.

Beerandhockey8 (372) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - SEP 5, 2016
From 22oz bottle to tulip glass. Pour is a orange color, thin white head. Nose is yeast, banana, light floral, herbs. Taste is sour and finishes sweet, light-medium bodied. Finishes fine and with an active fizz on the tongue.

onceblind (8447) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2016
Brilliant clear golden with a thin white cap. Nice herbal and grainy nose thats a touch biscuity and Belgian estery, with a touch of something from the spice cabinet and golden American malts. The flavor is quite golden bready malty, some black pepper, a nice herbal nuance throughout the base, and a light orange citrus finish with more blonde and biscuity saison grains.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7288) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Sampled on draft at Tapped this beer poured a murky orange-tan color with a large fluffy white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet and yeasty with a musty note and moderate pineapple and orange. The flavor was yeasty and phenolic with a musty presence followed by elements of peach, citrus, pepper and almost perfume. Long finish that turns a bit dry. Medium body. Interesting.

OldMrCrow (2431) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 3, 2016
Bottle from Total Wine, I think.

Darker-than expected orange pour with a lightly pink-orange tinted head. Nice saison aroma, peppercorns pretty forward, otherwise good dusty elements with modest but not excessive esters. Flavor is a bit sweet, a bit cloying, balanced by the nearly-spicy pepper. Orange. Mouthfeel is thick and not as refreshing as Id like. I dont understand why this needed to be brewed at 7%. US brewers need to learn to do saisons at 5% or below. Passable.

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 20, 2016
On tap at brewpub. A slightly hazy golden with a short lived white head. Aroma is pepper, lemon, vanilla. Flavor is lemon, vanilla. Finish is pepper, light sting from the peppercorn. Light to medium body, soft mouthfeel, average carbonation.

NachlamSie (3384) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 19, 2016
10 oz at WoB Belmar. Pours a cloudy light, light amber with a tall white head. Pungent peppercorn aroma is immediately noticed with a touch of orange and clove. The body is full with a finish not too dry or too sweet. Flavors of oranges start to develop beneath the peppercorn with some peppery esters and faint bubblegum. Not as peppercorn forward as their Oddlands saison, but still harmonious and delicious.
