RSRIZZO (1986) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 7, 2008
750ml bottle courtesy of Headbanger. Aroma is a bright sour scent with hints of apple. Color is a hazy orange brown with good carbonating and a thin tight white head. Taste is sour and citric. Starting with a medium body it goes down with a crisp feel. Finish comes in sour with orange and coriander flavors then a faint tartness on the end. In the after taste there is a mild sweetness. This is an amazing brew, it combines the flavors of a white with the sour feel of Flemish. Headbanger (3999) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2008
750 ml (8/10/08)-Pors a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, coriander, orange, and sweetness. Taste of the same with a little more citrus than most other saisons. This medium bodied brew has a dry finish with a tweak of alcohol. A nice tasting Saison. hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2008
750ml bottle thanks to OldStyleCubFan for this big bottle. Poured a golden body with a good size head. Aroma is of yeast and spices. Medium bodied, creamy texture, soft carbonation and a chalky finish. Short duration, moderate sweetness and acidity, light bitterness; nice herbal hop and straw, grassy malt and yeast flavor with trace citrus notes. Overall a nice tastey Saison.

Bottle. Pours a very pale yellow with incredible head and carbonation. Nose is musty and damp. Flavor is that of funky, basement with some barnyard. Not that I mind that actually since in some red wines it is very welcomed. However, iIt is thin and slightly bitter, not a full bodied saison. The excessive carbonation became annoying. Definately not worth the $12 price, but I’m not sure at what price it would be worth it. ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 26, 2008
Bottle from sams. Hazy yellow pour. Tart aroma. Sweet malts giving way to tart grassy hops.

750ml bottle on clearance @ Sam’s for 3.99- Some other raters have complained about excessive carbonation, but this bottle has basically none. A bit of a lactic acid/ lambic/ raspberry smell, some sweet malt cowering behind it and a vapor trail of earthy hops. Sweet malty taste up front yields to some boozy flavors, slight hop bitterness. This might have been good at one time, but I can see now why this was on clearance- really don’t want to finish this glass of flat unenjoyable brew. At least the bottle is high quality, will reuse it for homebrewing. GMCC2181 (1610) - Newark, Delaware, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Bottle from Swolf! Thanks for sharing wolf! Hazy yellow in color, small head. Raspberry aroma. Taste is a nice fruityness of raspberries and spices. Kind of tart, and lots of carbonation but overall a good summer time brew that I enjoyed on a hot day. Thanks again wolf Swolf3 (262) - Elkton, Maryland, USA - JUN 11, 2008

Vibrant light yellow orange - semi thick pour with a bubbly head. Big smell of fruit. Lemon citris flavor. Really highly carbonated. Not very enjoyable. Overly lemon.
Golden colored with a white head the has some retention and lacing. Earthy aromas, light grass, lemon, and clove. Bready taste, earthy, clove, and spice. Higher carbonation and medium body.
