I think its a 2006 vintage 375 ml bottle. Popped the bottle and it wanted out. Had to goto the sink to pour this. The beer has a nice murky caramel colored body with a sexy meringue head. Awesome lacing. The aroma is heavy in cloves, Belgian/French yeasts, bananas, funk and black pepper. The flavor is lightly tart with some spicy yeasts, pepper, allspice, bananas, toasty grains. At times, too spicy. I wanted a nice pleasant brew and it was all up in my face. Nice slick mouthfeel and refreshing dryness.

What a great aroma which surrounds the opening of my snifter. Banana, cheese, barnyard funkiness. Large foamy head which is uneven. Flavor is sour, but sweet and fruity as well and is balanced nicely. Yeasty with a dry finish. For the saison style, this is top notch.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 16, 2006
Drank in a tulip. Murky yellow poor, amazingly HUGE white longlasting head. Very herbal, pepper, citrus, corriander, a little bit of ginger, pine resin. Dry mouthfeel, a little bitterness. What you smell is preaty much what you taste. Very interesting beer. Not spectacular, but definitely worthy.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2006
375 mL bottle. Poured a golden straw color with a very thick dense white head. Sweet floral aroma, I smelled a hint of an unknown spice, reminiscent of a licorice/anise smell. Taste starts off bitter and tangy and finishes dry. Very nice.

CigarsLoveBeer (153) - Illinois, USA - NOV 5, 2006
750 ml Bottle: Beautiful white foam, straw colored with normal haze. Mild sour cirtus aroma with some notes of sweet cream and pine. Taste started with mild citrus, them moved on to a wonderful hop bite. Finish was mild and could have been longer. Very solid beer, I can see why it defines the style for many.

dkoonce (911) - Peoples Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - NOV 1, 2006
375 ml bottle. Pours a massive head that dwarfs the beer in the glass. After all settles, the beer leaves a loose frothy head. Fairly fruity aroma, but some off tones. Dry and tart. Takes a couple of sips to fully appreciate.

Icredible fruitiness, long dry finish. Peppery taste with yeast and green apples. Quite cloudy with a long lasting head.
