5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Goldenish amber, moderate to large sudsy off-white head, nice lacing.   Musty bready aroma,
somewhat dank and sweaty.   Barnish and grassy on the tongue, very dull floral aspect.   A little spritzy.
While dull it does have a bright grassy aspect, just the floral side is dull.   Body and mouthfeel are
moderate.   A little more lively on the backside, but still has this sweaty sock aspect.   Remains musty and a
little basement like all the way to the finish.   Not the floral sharp type of saison I like, but otherwise its
decent. mjs (7778) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 25, 2011
(Draught at Pikkulintu, 20111125) The beer poured pale orange and cloudy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had white wine, spices and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were spices, white wine, mild sourness, hops, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was spicy and bitter. Nice saison with white wine twist. laiti (8531) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 25, 2011

Earthy and sourish aroma has some farmhouse notes and spices. Flavour is spicy, tart and somewhat sour with some citrus. Good.
In taster at Churchills. Looks dark yellow. White head. Smells like and amber farmhouse. Tastes like a pale farmehouse with bitterness and roughness. Would be a great lawnmower beer. Overall 7.5 of 10. Brandman (2964) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 14, 2011
HAzy orange body, white head. Aroma of ginger, perppers, spices and yeast. Flavour is spicy, floury, yeasty with some orange blossoms. Quite unorthodox and couldn’t catch the clue of this beer.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - NOV 10, 2011
Nose: sour lemons, dried grass, hay, and farmyard funk. Lemon peel and pith. Brushed leather – shammy. White pepper and grains of paradise.
Palate: smooth and medium bodied. Sweet with a dry and bitter finish. Hay and straw in the finish – bitter lemon. Key lime, bitter peel. White pepper. Kumquat.
Final Thoughts: a solid saison. Clean crisp and straightforward profile to make any Belgian saison aficionado content.
750 ml bottle. A hazy medium to dark blonde beer, with a huge, frothy, lacing, fully lasting white head. The aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain/bread), moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs, grass), lightly to moderately yeasty (earth, must/mold), with notes of pepper, lemon, orange, grape, perhaps a touch of mint and coriander. The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, very long finish with moderate bitterness. Excellent stuff, complex. drinkable, quaffable, not over the top example, it feels almost completely Belgian, not overly spicy, Rustic and satisfying. daleharshman (1083) - Escondido, California, USA - NOV 8, 2011
750 ml bottle purchased a little over a year ago at Holiday Wine Cellar ($11.29). Pours a honey-orange hue with huge fluffy white head (started coming out of the bottle when I opened it) with good retention. Aroma of dusty malts, musty horseblanket, yeast, some caramel, and some fruit. Flavor of tasty caramel, bready malts, citrus-y fruit, tangy peppery spice, and some yeast. Dry-ish finish. Decent saison, but not much interesting or exciting here. For the price, I think it should be much better. (329, 635) TURDFERGUSON (4068) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 7, 2011
Numerous bottles and most recently a cask pour at Avenue Pub. Rating the cask version. Super cloudy orange golden with a sudsy white head. Nose is spices, yeast, citrus, esters. Flavor is similar, a little grass, flowers, quite estery. Slightly dry, slightly sweet finish. A little different each time I have it but always enjoyable.
