DocLock (10334) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours hazy ruddy muddy brown with huge 3-finger tan head that laces copiously. Nose is great: rye malt, cherry, oaky vinous fruit, brown sugar. hops. This one smells like a fruity oak-aged barleywine. Tastes of rye malt, earthy woody notes, cherry, black pepper, and a dry, fruity, hoppy finish.

CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2013
750 ml Bottle. Dark copper colored with a dense layer of tan foam. In the nose, its mostly rye malt, caramel, dark fruits and Belgian yeast. The flavor starts with a healthy serving of caramel malt, rye, chocolate and cherry followed by notes of clove, pepper, fig and herbal hops toward the end. Thick and creamy body with heavy carbonation and a slightly tart, spiced grain finish. Overall, an enjoyable but difficult to categorize brew that could almost pass for a Quad if it had a higher ABV.

PhillyCraft (6760) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle from Hunger Mountain Co-op. Poured hazy red with beige top. Lacing was minimal. Notes are herbals, coffee, roasted and sweet malting, wood, musk, and prunes. Lighter in body with pretty active carbonation for the style. I liked this one but really prefer the 4 and 7.

XaenDovet (1282) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 20, 2013
On tap at alibi. Hazy dark amber. Aroma is strong, rye grain, plum, and a sneaky funk. Taste is rye spice and straw, with dark fruit malt.

Minderbinder (3460) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle 750ml. Pours mahogany with very high frothy beige head. Intense lacing. Aroma is of malt, fruits, yeast, caramel. Taste is of grain, sugar, caramel, weird off-taste. Palate: Medium body. Sitcky texture. Overall: Not too good. Metallic, coppery.

mathieuc (3772) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2013
Pours a cloudy orange with a medium off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is strange, with weird "green" notes that some other people identified as "metallic" but it didnt put me off too much. Taste is yeasty, spicy with a minimal level of sweetness. It was too carbonated for me and I think the beer as a whole suffered from that. Not bad but definitely not great.

czar (8708) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2013
cascade + upright tasting sessions - thanks to all. pours cloudy amber, almost light brown with a light beige cap, some retention. earthy piths, fruitiness - borderline acrid, maple, spices, toasted/roasted grains, dirt and light woodsy notes. prickly carbonation, light body, earthy-grassy finish. weak brew, although clearly biased by the bottling issue here.

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2013
750 ml bottle shared with Tom and chums. Pours an opaque orangeish dark brown with a whitish-beigeish head. Aroma is earthy and caramel. Flavor is yeast, caramel, spicy, sugar syrup. Finish is tart, herbal, bitter. Some disturbing metallic quality...Medium body, average carbonation. Not horrible, but not so great, either...

tom10101 (5811) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2013
Bottle (750 ml). Shared by mathieuc, thanks! Slightly hazy amber with a huge frothy off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of caramel, yeast, fruity and earthy notes, some spiciness and, unfortunately, very light metallic notes (I didnt had it as much as some of my tasting partners). Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with spices, yeast, caramel, chocolate, fruity esters and earthy notes. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Good Rye Saison! Nothing is spectacular, but the balance make this one more than acceptable.

Bottle from mathieuc, thanks a lot! Pour is hazy reddish/brown, beige hesd, huge lacing. Aroma is fruity,caramel, nutty, yeast (some metalic notes). Taste is caramel, fruits, yeast (again some metalic notes). Low body and medium carb. Not bad but stange.
