Slightly cloudy, reddish brown appearance with a small, khaki colored head. Yeasty aroma along with some spicyness. Taste was malty, whole grain breadiness, and moderately spiced with a hint of fruit. Smooth, clean, medium-bodied mouthfeel. Finish was a bit acidic. On tap at Max’s in Baltimore.

Bottle. Chestnut brown with almost no head due to low carbonation. Aroma is complex with prunes, chocolate and alcohol, but leading to a less interesting flavor, which is dominated by toffee and and dark fruit. Ends watery without any bitterness. The cask ale-like carbonation makes it very smooth to drink and a very unusual Belgian beer. CapFlu (5132) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 26, 2005
(22oz bottle) Campled at DumDum’s Belgian Sendoff on August 25, 2005. Nose of marshmellows and mushrooms. Deep orange body with a thin, white head. Flavour is tinny - its like drinking from a metal rod. Yuck! CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - AUG 13, 2005
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Very different from DuPont’s Saison. Ruby colour. Great fruity aroma of rhubarb, gooseberry and pastry, funky yeast, spice. Good mouthfeel, little sweet, little sour in finish. Nice stuff.

(on bottle) Very heavy kandisaroma, like strawberryjam left on the stove for 5 hours. Watery, burnt sugar flavour, slightly tatr, raspberry-finish. Good with heavy gatrics. wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2005
Draft...in a shaker glass? Deep amber-red; creamy, off-white, thin draft head. Predominant aroma is whole grain bread. Pear and apple cores, white grape skins, dry grass. A light nuttiness comes into play in the flavor. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a lighlty sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter, astringent finish. Medium body, slick texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: with a rather restrained ester profile, high maltiness and graininess, this seems more like a (poor) attempt at a Biere de Garde than a Saison.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2006 I guess I just do not get the whole saison thing. I have yet to find one that I find to be more than adequate. Sampled this one on draft at the Sharp Edge in Pittsburgh. It poured a mahogany color with a small light tan head. The aroma is lightly grainy and lightly fruity. The flavor is dry with a hint of molasses and a mild to moderate malty undertone. There is a hint of vague fruitiness in the finish. Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Light brown with a small off-white head. Fruity, fresh slightly tart notes with a dry and rather hoppy finish. Also some metallic notes in the palate - more akin to for instance Rodenbach. Quenching indeed. 090594 marsjemars (1) - leiden, USA - MAY 19, 2005 does not count
