Hazy straw body with lacing head. Aroma is yeasty with some pepper and earth undertones. Flavour is spicey before turning nice and tart. Nice full bodied flavour without the carbo load you find with some saisons. Finishes with a nice hoppy dryness. Easy and tasty drink. BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 9, 2006
Pours a nice yellow color, with a fluffy, white head. Aroma is yeasty, funky and fruity. Flavors are definitely dry, with plenty of yeast and a bit of tart flavors. Finishes hoppy and dry- very nice. DarkMagus (540) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 9, 2006
Coarse, heavy, thick, rocky meringue-like head. Nearly clear, yet hazy golden color. Aroma of yeast, hops, malt, and some floral elements. Predominantly yeasty floral flavors with hints of malt and hops. Nice crisp mouthfeel, dry (hoppy) finish. Certainly the greatest example of a Saison I’ve ever had. A prime brew and a prime example of the style. brewgirlca (57) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 8, 2006
Bottle -best before 2009- it’s fresh. I almost peed myself when I saw this on the shelf at my liqour store having dreamed for years of getting a real bottle of this famous beer. Sadly I was totally dissapointed. The beer starts off wonderfully with a full spicy aromatic nose that sets you up for a wonderful experience. But when I tasted it WHAMO! Holly man, this is what I teach in my judge certification class as being classic baby diapers! And the finish was very dry, mouth pucikering astringent. I’ve brewed with their yeast and found the same faults - I thought the yeast was just off but now I suspect this is the real house character. Too much over the top even for this style for my palate. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - SEP 8, 2006
375ml. Pours cloudy medium gold with a platinum blond head that’s picture perfect--smooth and sculpted; tight heads of bubbles and a sudsy collapse as time goes by. Beautiful mild tart yeast nose. Light, crisp, and refreshing. Lightly spicy, grassy-sweet notes come through in the palate. No finish to speak of, and that’s lovely. This is great stuff. Maybe I’m starting to grasp this whole Belgian thing, finally.

Bottle. Hazy orange with a good white head. Sweet and yeasty aroma with a hint of coriander. Initially sweet, but with good offsetting bitterness, ending really dry. Some sour fruit notes as well. Good body, dry mouthfeel. A great classic. Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2006
Hazy straw yellow with a fluffy, merainge looking head. Yeasty nose with citrus wheat overtones....some hops too. Herbacious, sharp taste that is well layered. Wonderfully long finish, with grass notes. I’m not a huge fan of this style, but this beer is damn good. destroye7 (312) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 1, 2006
750 ml bottle. Hazy liquid. Yellow-orangy color. Medium carbonation. Good head. Dry finish, bitter taste. Okay beek. Unfortunatly, not that impress if I look at the ratings... Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 1, 2006
hazy yellow coloured with an average to large white head and some light carbonation. Herby malty aroma, some fruity hints. Fresh and full palate with some carbonation. Very herby finish, little yeasty with a somewhat sharper taste, and a longer dry finish. Rather good.
