Brouwser (119) - gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2008
Bière blonde très voilée avec une mousse blanche assez abondante qui quitte en peu de temps pour laisser quelques îlots. Arôme complètement dominé par le houblon, une fois, deux fois et trois fois comme décrit sur l’emballage de la bouteille. Un houblon astringent, plus proche des agrumes que des herbes et fleurs. Le goût est essentiellement amer, houblonné. L’arrière-goût est cendré. Pour une « saison », cette bière me semble plutôt simple au niveau des arômes et du goût. Le palais est beaucoup mieux, très vif, très frais, rond et court. Bière de saison décevante, rien pour s’asseoir devant un bon feu… Plus proche d’une bière amère ou d’une IPA costaude…

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2007
Pours a cloudy golden with a large frothy head. The Aroma is spicy, earthy, grassy and a bit of subdued banana. Flavor is a mix of sweet malt, doughy yeast and somewhat tart. Big carbonation, small to medium bodied. Overall a very nice dry Saison whose flavor defineately improves as it warms.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2007
Bottle from Bitter Virtue. Pale with a large fluffy head, its one of those with a tendency for the head to grow out of the bottle in between pours. Spicy yeast and floral hop aromas. Initially sweet malts but there is plenty of earthy hops and a twist of zesty tang in the finish to balance this out. Quite drinkable if a little laid back. 3.3

BeerBiker (1415) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2007
Bottle from brothers hood handled by Rob Rensenbrink. Really nice saison with great saisonnotes. Blondmurky view and notes of yeast, flowers, spices such as pebber, citrus and grass. Great!

joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 16, 2007
hazy golden appearance with sweet banana-like nose. flavor is really best once the beer warms due to the subtleties. beer has a thin palate with high carbonation. the flavor is sweet with a malty richness that finishes with a tart yeasty aspect. a nice beer that can only be enjoyed closer to room temperature

jercraigs (10302) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2007
Bottle shared by Mabel. Massive foamy white head tops a hazy yellow body (3+). Interesting aroma of grass, yeast, dandelions (I wonder if that was actually coriander... hmm) hint of alcohol, light floral/herbal notes. Light flavour has notes of lemon, dandelions again, lemongrass, light tangy bitterness throughout, light spices. (7+) Average palate is smooth and effervescent. Pleasant. I expect it would be even better on a spring day in Belgium rather than a cold winter night in Canada.

Boutip (6269) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2007
Bottle: Poured a deep cloudy yellow/beige color ale with a huge foamy head with great retention and loads of foam sticking to the glass. Aroma is quite spicy which is probably coming from the yeast strain used by the brewer. Taste is a mix between some deep semi-sweet Belgian malt, some fruity ester and a spicy finish from the yeast with some light funky notes as well. Body is full with limited filtration with some great carbonation. Very well done overall but I still think this is a notch below the Dupont.

rederic (3335) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 8, 2007
Hazy yellow gold hue, with a big fluffy rocky white head, leaving laces, yeasty,wheaty, fruity nose of lemons, grapefruits, with a faint spicy coriander accent, a hint of candyish star fruit, with a citrus flowery hop note, in a marmalade aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, sweet wheaty, zesty, citrusy character, with some honeyed pale malt accents, notes of floral hop, with a subtle vanilla spicinness, with good carbonation, leading towards a dry hoppy finish.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 6, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2012 In short: Nice slightly spicy Belgian Saison on the dry/dusty side of things.
How: 750ml bottle, fresh
The look: Very cloudy dirty-yellow body with a long-lasting small white head
In long: Dry, almost funky yeast, coriander and some salty spices, some grapefruit and dried bananas. Body is full, fizzy and very alive. There’s an overall dry/dusty feeling in the beer (yeast?) that works well with the fruity astringency. Sharp and mouth drying. At about $15 each I probably paid too much for my bottles but what can I say, I’m a sucker for Belgian Saisons like my cousin Louis for mail-order brides.
