NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2005
Pour is a deep brown-orange, similar to a Flemish Brown ale. Thin foamy head. Smell is interesting. Funky fruity smell with molasses and banana bread. Pretty good. Color is very different from the other saisons that Ive had, save for maybe the Goose Island Saison. Taste is really sweet with iron coming through. This is a weird saison. Body is really really thin. To make matters worse, the alcohol is present at 5.2%. I have no idea what causes this, but its wrong, particularly given the appearance/aroma. Finish dry and actually a bit bitter with definite hops showing. Very odd.

smells a bit like sweaty socks and citrus. tastes a little bitter, sweet and sour. do i taste iron? (oxidation)?aftertaste is more bitter. thin body. typically saison. could be better.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 8, 2005
Well, I had Brandons saison before trying this one so I was disappointed. very acidic with kind of a grapefruit taste, hints of other citrus fruits. slightly grainy. medium mouthfeel with some carbonation.

Zythos Beer Festival, Sint-Niklaas, Belgium 2005. Brown colour with a big off-white fast dissapering head. Light sweet fruity yeasty aroma and taste. Medium body and a sweet finish.

eczematic (1325) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - MAR 16, 2005
note - dont bother ageing this beer. cellared this for a year and a bit and didnt gain a lot. still, nothing to lose, i remember it being pretty crappy when i first had it 5 years back. red-brown - looks like JS amber ale. i think this bottle was a bit oxidised - smelt of one-dimensional sweet malt, with some sherry. taste has some biscuity (dog-biscuity!) nutrigrain sweetness, touch of bitterness, but not much else. not even as fruity as i remember it, just flabby and sweet. oh well.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 9, 2005
his does not hve the typical farmhouse character of a true saison. Vey acidic and unbalanced. some yeast and spice notes very little fruit with a little oxidation coming thru. very thin mouthfeel and some off flavors in the finish.

TBone (16441) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 2, 2005
Bottled
Deep "kriek" red, good brownish head. Aroma of red currant and rye bread. Full-bodied, sweetish with berries and sugar, like Grandmas red currant juice. Some late bitterness in the aftertaste. Quite unique saison.

joet (2560) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JAN 26, 2005
very malty, not like a typical saison at all, cookies and biscuit. some fruit esters. hmmm this is most like an American brown or "amber". Slight sour fruit. Not very interesting. Not much in the nose of an "outdoor" nature. No refreshing crispness to the body.
