ginormous off white head. sour lemony smell. dark yellow color reminiscent of cider. it tastes like spice and lemons whatever that means. has an alcohol burn SpringsLicker (3685) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 12, 2006
Cloudy yellow pour with a thick creamy head that throws off a funky Belgian aroma.
Starts slightly tart with some sweetness underneath. No hops.
A bit thin.
I think I liked the old in-house bottled regular saison better. Shag (3059) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - NOV 5, 2006
A cloudy yellow appearance with a very large head. It was quite the struggle to pour this into the clear plastic cup at the Motel 6. A spicy, coriander, apricot, and pear aroma. The flavor is quite tangy with some oranges, peaches, apricots, and alcohol showing. A nice warming and sour finish. This was a good one! egajdzis (6830) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2007 Poured a hazy golden color with a large, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus fruits, light spices of coriander and cardamom, and a yeastiness. The taste was a bit sweet, with lemon meringue, grassy hops, yeast, citrus fruit, black pepper, and alcohol. I’d imagine a year or so with this will really work wonders.

I had this over the course of the weekend and I wish I could remember it better. i remember thanking god that it didn’t taste too much like super sour funk saisons. that being said, i still don’t really care for the style.

Bottle: Courtesy of Styles. Aroma is lightly fruity and yeasty with some mild lemon sourness and light flowery hops. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a large soapy white head with great retention. Lots of oragne peel in the flavor. Moderate amounts of citrus in the form of lemon and orange. Mildly yeasty. Finishes with a mellow flowery and spicey finish. hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2006
sampled from a 750 at brewtopia 10/21/06. This may be the best saison I have had. Hazy golden with a big off white head. Aroma is spicy, peppery, bready, earthy and tangy citrus. Taste is tart citrus, earthy yeast, peppery, with a long, dry lightly bitter finish. awesome beer. allfreej (567) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 22, 2006
Bottled. Poured Golden with an immense, fluffy, white head. Lots of foam. Nose was sour, yeasty, and citrusy. The flavor was tart, citrusy, yeasty, with a touch of spice. The finish was dry with alcohol tones and a nicely carbonated mouthfeel. jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2006
Unholy insane huge white foamy head. Poured into my La fin du Monde tripel glass it was about 90% head and 10% liquid on first (careful) pour. It then expanded even further creating a mound worthy of mashed potatoes circa Close Encounters of the Third Kind before finally chilling out a bit. The aroma is very peppery, lemony, spicy... Very yeasty overall. The flavor is quite lemon loaded up front then the spicy yeast kicks in. Sweetness also makes a presence that balances things out a bit. Medium-light palate with a lightly fizzy (not nearly as much as one would expect given the enormity of the head). Quite nice and very fun to drink. OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2006
750ml bottle Pours golden amber with a nice forthy white head that stays very well and laces the tulip glass in weblike patterns. Aromas of yeast, honey, lemon, some grass, and a spice presence. Good complex flavor includes honey, yeast, dough, lemon, pepper, corriander, and some grassy hops. Palate is light and airy with a somewhat spicey dry finish. Amazingly complex and quite fantastic to sample..
