Drake (13728) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 30, 2008
Bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville. Pours a very hazy orangish-straw color. Very large head with moderate retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of citrus, mango and a subtle tartness. Taste is mildly fruity and very dry. Citrus, strawberry, peach. Very nice,

ekstedt (6773) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2008
Bottle (75 cl) from Systembolaget. Hazy deep golden with a large white head. Fruity, Spicy, yeasty, and citric aroma. Medium bodied with vivid and slightly spritzy carbonation. Dry and slightly acidic. A good Saison, but not top notch.

jercraigs (10365) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2008
2005-05-24. Hazy golden yellow body is almost egg-yolk like in colour by the bottom of the bottle which is much cloudier than the initial pours. (3+) Yeasty lemon fruit aroma. (7+) Similar flavour, zippy lemon, some sort of spice I can’t pinpoint, light yeast and pale malt. Smooth average to medium palate. (3+) Bottle shared by Biegaman

HogTownHarry (6823) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2008
Bottle (750ml corked & caged). At 2nd Annual Summer Saison Tasting - beigaman’s bottle. Murky yellow pour, large frothy-creamy white head, lovely sticky lace (4+). Solid fruit (apple, pear, banana), spice and yeast aroma, nice bit of peppery sharpness. The taste followed right on, a little detectable alcohol, quite a lot of bitter spice in the finish. Somewhat thin bodied, solid pungent astringency, and a long yeast/spice finish - very nice --- I would have liked a little more lasting malt body.

750ml. Amber color with large white head that lasts. Has a nice aroma to it. It says farmhouse ale on the bottle but didn’t have as powerful a smell or taste as other farmhouse Saisons I’ve enjoyed. I enjoyed it but it seemed to have a matte flavor in there that I wish was replaced by possibly some sweetness or funkiness.

jacobwennbom (357) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2008
Fruity, hoppy and fresh. Golden with big white head. Floral feel to it, quite yeasty. .

3.7
Mutualaid (142) - Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2008
Pours amber with a huge white, seafoam head. Intense aromas of white wine and straw with a hefe-like fruitiness accented by an herbal hop bouquet. Big honey-malt flavors up front, but sweetness gives way immediately to an almost lambic tartness that leaves an overall dry, tingly sensation. Medium bodied. Long, long tangy, if overly thin finish.

3.4
AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Pours hazy pale yellow with finger thick off white head. The nose is yeast and fruit. The flavor is more of the yeast, dominantly yeast, with a clean dry finish.

steview (1037) - Petaluma, California, USA - MAY 24, 2008
i think this is very nice--a dry and bit tart overall with a great balance among its ingredients; this reminds me of orval; i think it is more like a typical belgian ale (i.e., it is like orval) not a saison--it could use more juicy fruits and more potent herbs, but as a beer it is still great.

3.3
garthicus (2929) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 24, 2008
Sampled at Jans Saison tasting! Thanks! Appearance: Clear yellow, small grey head, little carbonation. Aroma: Slight sour aroma, fruit there too. Flavour: Peppery, spicey, malty all at once! Super refreshing
