Ungstrup (35005) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2006
An unclear yellow beer with a huge lazing off-white head. The aroma is sweet and lovely spicy - especially with cloves and coriander, but also with a touch of citrus. The flavor is sweet citrusy and very spicy, coriander being strongest, as well as having a fruity touch of oranges, leading to a dry spicy end. Nice saison.

fiulijn (19614) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2009
Draught at Barcade, New York
Hazy blond color. The aroma is lightly spicy (coriander). Medium body strength; the flavor is lightly spicy, but boring overall, confirming that American microbreweries should not brew Belgian styles.

brokensail (16111) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 1, 2011
A: The pour is a slightly hazed golden orange color with a huge white head that eventually settles down. S: A strong aroma of apple and pear. Theres plenty of orange peel, grass, wet hay, and coriander. Theres a moderate malt character to it, providing a bit of lightly toasted bread notes. T: More sweet fruits such as the apples and pears. A definite bitterness that seems to be from an orange peel sort of flavor. Theres just a touch of sugar along with some white pepper and pale, cracker malts. M: The body is medium with a high level of carbonation and a slightly dry finish. D: The peppery note on the flavor and the wet hay aroma are a bit strong, but otherwise this was not bad.

Oakes (15820) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2008 Beige, slightly hazy. Slightly funky, with some pedio. Fairly full body, spicy, with a nice firm alcohol finish with herbal hops. This cuts through just a hint of sweetness at the fore, which comes in a little plasticy. Some spritziness moves the body forward. Decent little saison.
