Cybercat (5560) - Georgia, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Strong, inviting aroma is malty, fruity and yeasty with a grassy hint. It pours a clear amber with a thick, fluffy, rather persistent white head. Mouth filling flavor is crisp and malty and has fruity and floral undertones as well as an herbal hint. Texture is fizzy and sassy, and can unexpectedly bite the tongue, so watch out! Another winner from Lost Abbey.

after4ever (7940) - Brier, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2011
750, corked and baled. Pours a crystal clear bright medium orange with an absolute riot of nucleation columns pouring up from the bottom of the glass. Huge platinum blonde head towers over that. Lots of eggy lace. Candied lemons and a bit of white pepper on the nose. Fizzy medium body. Oranges, candied lemons, and white pepper on the mid palate. Mild peppery finish. Nice saison.

noturdadsbeer (25) - centennial, Colorado, USA - APR 15, 2011
Poured from 750ml into red wine glass at home. A: Pours a hazy gold with great lacing. Head recedes quickly into a nice soft foam over beer. S: Belgian yeast, touch of Brett, pears and apples. A little spicy floral hops on the back but funk dominates. T: Big fruity esters, gentle spice, touch of that Saison funk, and dry bitter on finish. M: Medium bodied but might seem a little larger because of the dry finish. Moderate carbonation. D: Really easy drinking for a nice hot day. Saisons are porch beers: Sip and enjoy the day pass by.
