Had at HBF from bottle. Big carbonation in a straw-colored pour. Aromas of citrus, spice, earth. Tasted spicy, citrusy, with some peaty, malty effects at the finish.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 20, 2004
Pretty good saison. Similar to du pont yet this is not quite as grassy yet has more of a complex spiciness. Nice light color with lots of carbonation making it perfect for the hot summer months. Very nice.

shadey (2085) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 13, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2007 Straw, or Golden color with a very tall white foamy head. Spicy and mildly citrusy. The description says it fall into the domain of Belgian Saisons... not even close. I didn think this even began to touch a Fantome or any other I have tried. 6/3/5/3/12
RERATE: Straw colored pour with a very attractive head of creamy white lace. Aroma is sweet with just a touch of dried spicy hops. The flavor is a smooth and well blended mix of wheat, cloves, and just a touch of fruity sweetness. A very clean, easy drinking saison. What the hell was I thinking when I rated this the first time?

Beautiful straw colored with light frothy head and lacing on top. Sort of subtle and not overpowering at all. A very easy to drink brew.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2004
Bottled @mwsfs place. Not a huge fan of this brewer so far. Yeasty choc/caramel, pretty sweet and a little bit syruppy to be honest, but not bad.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2004
Pours a clouded hay colored. Nice fluffy white head. Nose is yeast, spice, and fruit. I was surprised at the light tartness, not sure if I completely enjoyed it. I have to try this one again.

Shadrach (176) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 16, 2004
Poured pale opaque orange, a kind of golden wheat color. Aroma was yeast and lemon. Taste was also yeasty and lemon with a sour "bite" to it. Almost a tart or "puckery" taste, not so much to my liking.

BATLMULLET (127) - Highland, Indiana, USA - MAY 12, 2004
Nice pale, bright yellow color with a bright white, persistent head. Only moderately spicy with some degree of sourness. Refreshing, deceivingly light with an alcohol kick.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2004
Pale golden yellow colour, slightly cloudy with a thick lively frothy white head. Aroma is fruity (cherry and blackberry) and spicy (cloves). Mostly sweet fruity cherry flavours with lightly acidic undertone. Dryish and refreshing mouthfeel.
