progrock (21) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 31, 2005
Pours a bright, light-golden hue with a massive, lingering head. Yeasty, slightly fruity nose. High carbonation. Some hop bite and peppery overtones. Crisp, slightly malty finish. Plenty of lacing. Refreshing and hoppier than expected.

thehipone (197) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 25, 2005
Huge effervescent white head on top of a light straw colored body. Just a ton of yeasty smells and flavors, you name it, you could probably convince yourself that any flavor is in there. Typical fruitiness, but a somewhat unpleasant vegetable taste really dominates the finish. If it werent for this funk, this could stand in for champagne, it has a seemingly impossible combination of an initial light sweetness in the finish, followed by a clean, dry finish. Light, fizzy body.

lethe (177) - New York, USA - DEC 19, 2005
Clear hay-colored pour with a billowing white head. Nose is fruity, farmy, and efervescent. Body is medium with high carbonation. Flavor is spicy and contains all the mustiness and bitterness of a forgotten farmhouse. A classic that does not disappoint.

rickgordon (3870) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2005
Bottled. Pale golden, rich white head. Very fruity and dewy nose. Super smooth mouthfeel. Long long flavour. Detectable bitterness in finish. Herbal, dry mouthfeel - very well attenuated.

walter (359) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 17, 2005
375ml corked bottle. Light golden color, cloudy, with huge rocky white head. Nose is lemon, hay, citrus sourness, mild spice/dryness, and yeast. Smooth palate, not super-carbonated, with flavors of all of the above focusing on a nice balance between citrus sourness and yeasty funk. Quite tasty, great with suasage and cheese.

750ml - Thanks Pailhead - My 200th rating! Aroma is bubblegum, bananna, clove, yeast, and bread dough. Pours a cloudy yellow-brown with a huge fluffy white head leaving great lacing. Flavor matches aroma with the yeast taking the lead. Some hops show up and the spice is more pronunced but not too much. Palate is sweet, crsip, and dry. THE classic saison and a wonderful brew for all your senses.

Love it..Rated top beer by Mens Journal. Hard to get where I live but once you pop you cant stop. Banana, cloves, and maybe vanillia. Nice and floral. Light on the palate and very easy drinking beer. Nice head on the pour..Fizzy, refreshing, and overall a good one I try to keep on hand. Friends will think you are drinking something special and you are.. Way to go Belguim!!!

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - DEC 12, 2005
12.7 oz (375 mL) green bottle purchased at Monks Caf, Philadelphia, PA. Bottle conditioned. A Belgium farmhouse ale with ABV 6.5%. A hazy golden yellow ale having a long-lasting large white head with good lacing. No discernable carbonation. Nice fruity ester aroma. Medium bodied that starts with a light sweet malt and fruity flavors. Finishes dry with light malt aftertaste. This is a good dry Belgium ale with nice fruity aroma. Goes very well with Monks mussels.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 10, 2005
My cork says this is a 2005 and I always listen to talking corks. Bannana, musk, cloves and a touch of summer grass in the aroma. Golden yellow color with a three finger thick head you could float a penny on. Fore is sweet and creamy like banna pudding and nilla wafers. Very tongue tickling acidity. Lots of carbonation and one of the creamier heads Ive ever seen. There is a cookie/cake/biscuit like flavor to the aftertaste that is positively addicting.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2006 [750ml bottle, fresh, chilled, classic SAQ selection] I had this beer a few weeks ago with Daniel Bilodeau but I just found my annotations.

When poured, top of the bottle is clear while bottom is cloudier. Golden color with a frothy head. Aroma is dominated by fruit sugar + some menthol notes. Hay and apple. Looks like a white beer. Medium complexity taste. Sweet at first, with a hoppy finish. Interesting saison.

Rerate Mar 18 2006
A fully lasting average rocky white head tops up a murky medium yellow body. Heavy lacing. Many thin particles. No bubbles. Unfiltered. Aroma presents malt being heavy hay while hops are herbs ... Yeast character is moderate cheese. Also, there are evident evocations of pear and raisin . Initial flavor is moderate sour and peppery overtones while development presents spices and hay. Finish is medium . medium to full body... oily texture... Lively carbonation...
[ Bottled ; chilled ; BB 10/2008]

Of course, I could be very sad about whats happening, but theres so much beauties in the world, and then I understand that everything is going for a reason. You dont get me, I know, but you will, one day.
