JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2005
Amber coloured with slim off-white head. Peppery and fruity aroma. Great complex sour taste, with citrus, yeast and spices. Refreshing, thirst quenching, drinkable. Excellent.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2005
33 cl bottle, from fridge, temperature gradually rising to 12 C. Practically no head on a very hazy dark orange body (in fact, I saw some kind of cloud forming in the glass as the temperature rised). Is is bitter and I thought at first it was a Lambic (the label says "beer with evolving taste). A bit vinous, the taste got more pleasant temperature rised, but still bitter. When all this is said, it wouldn’t be a bad beer in Summer.

MullMan (1099) - New York, USA - JAN 27, 2005
bottled Oct 1995. soaked cork, almost fell apart. no head, just a little tan foamyness that goes quickly. color is a pale hazy orange. aroma is triple-sec, slight funk/horseblanket, honey, and a little vinuous. kind of mead-like aroma too. flavor is sour and mostly dry, mouthfeel is slick with little to no carbonation. buttery too, and finish is a litle tangy with grpaefruit rind. faint peppery/ginger hidden in there, and weak aftertaste. this seems more of a flemish sour to me.

33cl corked and capped bottle. Couldn’t find a date on it?? It does look like its been sitting in the basement at John’s Grocery for awhile though. Cork gave me trouble, it split, but I managed to get the bottom half out without destroying it. Turned out flat, with only a slight foam edging. orange/rust colored. Musty dank earth peppery nose, leather, sour apples. Very light body and flavor...finishes slightly sour with a collection of spices. Pretty refreshing actually, not overly complex or big...this seems like a beer of old, old, old...Pretty enjoyable.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - DEC 12, 2004
Brewed 04/1995, bottled 09/1995, sampled on 12/12/04: Beautiful amber color, almost no head. Aroma: sour, pepper, orange rind, anise, leather. Taste: initially spicy and sour, there’s some pepper, ginger, barnyard, grass, tart grapes, hay, old barrels, white wine, sour wheat. Finishes slightly sweet and sour, with orange peel, fruit, and anise towards the end. Light to medium body with a small amount of carbonation left but still there. Interesting.

spicy amber saison, very noticably tart: leaves you puckering. i’m not a huge saison fan, but this one is pretty good.

Hugerat (452) - somerville, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Lovely hazy amber color with thick, billowy head and lots of lace on the glass. Sourness and astringency come through with the first whif. Citrus fruits like orange and grapefruit quite prominent. Very nice.

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2004
Hazy orange or golden color with a white head. The taste is sweet and fruity with some citrus and acidic notes. For some reason it made me think of christmas. Thin and slight watery finish.

1995 Vintage (April)
Hazy orange coloured body with a thin white head. Aroma of grass, tart fruit and wheat. Light-bodied; Tart flavour with some good characteristics. Overall, a nice aged saison-a good lambic and definately worth trying! Overall, great to try-thanks to Tim for bringing this! I sampled this 75 cL bottle on 15-May-2004 at the May RB Party in Toronto, Ontario.

1995 Vintage - Cheers to IPFreely! Had this at the Thirsty in Toronto Summer Gathering and it was the toast of the party. Well the beer of the party anyway. I absolutely loved it - I immediately asked Tim to get me more of this nectar. Barnyard mustiness/funkiness erupted from the deeply hazy golden tan, frothy white topped elixir. Suddenly the bushel of apples shoved the horseblanket aside and introduced themselves. Then they retreated in a spicy manner to let me decide what the hell just happened. Damn good stuff.
