Bottled (thanks kenb!). Honeyish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is honey, hops and earth. Flavour is fruit, earth, slight hops and nectar. Not too exciting saison. Might be some American hops that make it quite sweet. omhper (25541) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 11, 2002
Golden coloured. Big cardamom flavour. Too big for my liking. Not my favourite of the new Belgiums. fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2007

Golden color. An ok beer, with some caramel taste, some sweetness, and a quite evident spicy character.
On tap at Hop Vine Pub, Seattle. Copper colour with thin beige head. Belgian yeast aroma. Nutty. In fact it’s really nutty. Peanut. I mean it’s peanut. Not unpleasant but doesn’t go anywhere, bit over carbonated. Oakes (18472) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2000
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2005 A wonderfully acidic, spicy, flavourful rendition of the style. Astonishingly refreshing with a huge blast of ginger and depth of pepper, earthy hoppiness, and a dry finish. Re-Rate is hopefully pending.

Honey golden color, small white head. Estery fruity aroma with banana and light sour notes. Fruity (grape, tangerine), earthy, notes of mould. Quite full palate, sweetness in the aftertaste. Yes, it is a saison.
Aroma of citrus, dusty flowers, and yeast. Dark gold color, fluffy white head and some lacing. Starts with a tast of clove and coriander, sweet/tart in the middle, and spice and hop at the end. The spice overrides any hoppy citrus notes. Very refreshing, a good bit more flavor than most saisons from the Flanders region (in the widest sense).
