mullet (849) - Melbourne, - FEB 23, 2012
Seriously impressive packaging (though I’d prefer something more environmentally friendly!) for an impressive beer. Distinctly coconutty phenolics just like a Bocq beer which isn’t all that different to the phenol profile in Dupont. (I thought bluebetty’s comment about it being more like a tripel a bit odd before tasting it, but it’s spot on with respect to the phenolics. Not that I have a problem with it.) Authentically Belgian malt flavour, with a touch of sweetness but handled well. Subtle tropical esters with some orange juice, at a level more in line with good Belgian saisons than most Aussie attempts. Finishes extremely dry with a hint of anise, not that bitter. I’d like more hop throughout, but otherwise this is a seriously rare bird - an Australian beer that I’d probably pick as Belgian if tasting blind. Impressive stuff, I’ll definitely be on the lookout for new (hopefully hoppier!) batches.

NZJoe (9) - NEW ZEALAND - MAR 19, 2017 does not count
Poured from a bottle. Very clear, golden colour with quickly dissipating head. Has a fantastic aroma of herbal hops and barnyard funk. Taste is very refreshing, nicely hoppy with that characteristic belgian yeast flavour. Minimal sweetness. Bitterness doesnt really linger much. The main problem I have with this beer is the thin body. It is nice but just doest really compare to any of the good Belgian Saisons - but, hey, kudos for having a crack at something other than an IPA in the AU craft beer scene.

Dandm (121) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 3, 2017
Cloudy, muddled Amber. No head, low carbonation. Barnyard, cedar, citrus and grass. Funky and musky. Sour with some sweetness and not bitter at all. Interesting, more a wild ale than a saison to me. Faint mandarin as described.

DeliriumT (529) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2017
Pours deep amber with a good layer of head which quickly dissipates. Aroma of orange peel, coriander seeds, paradise seeds and lemon. Beautifully balanced and complex flavour. This yeast is phenomenal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

madquacker (1133) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - SEP 10, 2016
Orange copper colour. Big bubbles and bubble gum and tart tight malts and the flat flat style of a saison. Very nice.

Oakes (16655) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2016
Slightly hazy and a bit tan. Not much head. The aroma is a bit funky, touch of brett. Bit tart, but again some dirty funk. Just not clean enough. Their stuff is usually better.

beerplace (1332) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2016
375ml bottle at Matt’s. Pours a hazy blond with a white head. Aroma and taste are hoppy, slightly flowery, some mead and bread notes. Hoppy bitterness, flowery aftertste. Good one.

fiulijn (20046) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2016
Tasting at Matt’s, batch LS230088, bb July 2016
Hazy blond color. Penetrating aroma, a lot of strong honey (eucalyptus, linden), and some spicy yeast, perfumy candlewax; original. Too much carbonation, probably too much bottle refermentation, and the mouthfeel is very dry; spicy character, strong, and woody final.
A bit chaotic, but interesting.

mcberko (16253) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2016
375mL bottle, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out rustic farmhouse notes, light sheep / horse blanket, and dry biscuity notes. Flavour is complex and well-balanced, with rustic farmhouse notes, a touch of funk, and a dry biscuity finish. Really nicely constructed. Complex and authentic. Excellent.

wrlangin (221) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2016
500 ml bottle from CRU in Brisbane. Pours dark amber with mild, soft fermentation that dissipates quickly. Mild aroma of fruit. Taste is malt and fruit with a hint of sourness. Very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mrjez (563) - Osaka, JAPAN - FEB 26, 2016
Pours gold with a lot of carbonation bubbles, sediment, and a finger of white foam with great lacing. Nice aroma of champagne grape, yeast and funk. Taste follows suit, big champagne sour note, lemony elements, lovely barnyard tinge, and a big peppery finish. It’s quite a big beer in feel, gentle carbonation, slightly puckery. Excellently executed saison.
