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) - People’s 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. tykjen (182) - Florø, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2006
Icredible fruitiness, long dry finish. Peppery taste with yeast and green apples. Quite cloudy with a long lasting head. juggernaught (4) - USA - OCT 26, 2006 does not count
[Bottle from Hollingshead Deli]
Corked bottles are always a plus, with my cork labelled 2.006. Poured well with a nice head.
Decent appearance with very nice aroma. Dry finish, noticable carbonation, a bit too yeasty for my liking. First saison i’ve tasted. Don’t know if I’m a fan of the style.

Draught at Caves Dupont, the brewery tap, cloudy golden with a large thick white pillowy head. Floral notes and spice int he aroma. Smooth palate with a lasting dry finish. Flowery flavours at first, but then peppery and grassy in the finish. Very drying - but you can taste the quality. asteele8 (322) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - OCT 24, 2006
Bottle. Opened with a nice pop. Pours a cloudy light yellowish color with a very thick and huge white head. Aroma is white grapes, yeast, spices, and apples. Flavor is full of spices, yeast, and grapes. A very complex beer which has a nice tingling toward the tongue the second you take your first sip. Finishes with a nice dryness. A refreshing summer beer. I could enjoy this outside just relaxing on a hot summer. festyzizzle (30) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 23, 2006
Got this at Beirkraft. Thick fizzy white head almsot like champagne. An aroma of sweet grapes and pefume. Cloudy white body. Nice wheat flavor with a sweet palate. I havent had many Saisons before but this was pretty good. alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - OCT 23, 2006
Bottle. A nice cloudy gold pour, with a large head. Aroma of yeast and some spice. Smoot and easy to drink; flavor of yeast, some spice and possibly some fruit. Delirium (669) - Falmouth, Cornwall, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2006
Draught. Cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is yeasty and citrusy, with a bit of fruity malt. Flavor is similar, with a slightly bitter finish and a velvety texture. Quite good.
