Thank you for this big want Papat444!
Appearance. Pours a hazy amber-orange with a thin almost-white head.
Smell. Spicy and lightly funky belgian yeast with a little sweet malt, bananna and light fruit coming through.
Taste. Light spicy belgian yeast with a light sourness, a little lemon and just a bit of sweet light grainy malt. The more I drink, the more I'm liking it.
Mouthfeel. Medium body with medium-strong, fine and lively carbonation.
Overall. A nice saison with a great ballance of subtle flavours. Can't say enough good things about this brewery, huge fan. Thanks again papat444.

341ml bottle poured into tulip 24/4/12 bottle#616 thanks papat444 for sending me the bottle
A bright reddish amber with lots of little bubbles and suspended particles, thumbs width of off white head quickly falls to a thin film and leaves lots of random lace
S interesting nose with some peppery yeast, a little bubblegum, dry cereal, wet wood and faint sour vinous notes, its quite complex and I seem to pick up on different every whiff, some hops add to the mix with a little cherry candy
T some lemon zest and more woody notes then the nose, again its quite different, still a little spicy and quite earthy
M full for the color with lots of tiny bubbles, a little tannin, and leaves my mouth feeling a little slick, very faint heat and a long earthy aftertaste
O I wish my french was a little better but I think I read red wine barrel aged on the label and that would explain a lot. I thought this one was pretty unique and I rather enjoyed it
Something about drinking a beer without really knowing what I'm drinking always excites me for some reason. I might do my research and find out how far off I am with my interpretation. thanks again papat444

Thanks to Papat444 for the trade on this one.
Pours a hazy golden/amber colour with a small white head.
A lambic/sour aroma on the nose with some hops, earthy notes and wood.
You can pick out the wheat in the taste along with some dried fruit sweetness, a little bitterness and hops, a blade of grass and a little wood. In respect to the barrel aging on this saison, when compared to other saisons, I think this could be what has given this beer the dried fruit/sweet aspect that it contains.
Medium bodied and well balanced, medium to low level of carbonation, just right for this stlye and gives for a slightly bitter-citrus finish.
Overall a decent saison with a little more body and fruitiness than most!

Served in a 3 monts beer glass
A: Amber color. Good persistent foamy head
S: Pretty intriguing, as you see the oak bringing additionnal complexity.
T: Really interesting, and totally original. It's a Wheat beer, and you totally get this wheat character. At the same time, you have a sour character, evoking red sour flemmish ales. And you also have a generous yeast character, like sourdough.
O: really not my kind, as it is pretty heavy. At the same time, totally distinctive, gota give props.

Thanks to papat444 for this one. Didn't jot down the bottle number, but the batch size was 1500 bottles. Served in a wine glass.
A - Generous white foam settles to a few wispy patches, a thick collar, and some splotches of lace. Lightly hazed dark golden body.
S - Lots of phenolic and peppery Saison yeast, some banana, grain, and a slightly funky diaper note in the background. Oak and red wine flavors are quite mild are largely masked by the peppery yeast.
T - Taste is more standard Saison, with stone fruits, unmalted grains, peppery yeast, and bread. Jason says 'wet dog', but I don't get that flavor at all - perhaps a touch of oak though.
M - Medium body, moderate-to-low carbonation, grainy, and slightly gritty texture, dry, tannic finish, and no discernable alcohol.
D - Easy to drink, but not the most memorable beer. I wish the wine and hop flavors were more pronounced. I'd have this again if it weren't too expensive.

Brewed for their anniversary.
Poured from a 341ml. bottle, bottled Nov. 2011.
Appearance: A hazy orange body with a thick 2 finger head and retention is good but not excellent.
Smell: Dry red wine, spices and yeast.
Taste: First sensation is acidic fruit which gives it a bite. Mix of light hop bitterness, acai berries and oaked red wine. Some pepper also thrown in there.
Mouthfeel: Carbonation is alright, has some spunk.
Overall: Certainly not your average saison. Purists of the style might not like it but it is interesting and different. I like it but at the price it's sold, one is enough.
