COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Saisoner er in. Saisoner er hippe. Simpelthen. Endnu har ingen givet den helt gode forklaring på, at denne uhyre traditionelle belgiske ølstil pludselig nyder en voldsom opblomstring blandt toneangivede ølnørder. Bortset fra selvfølgelig, at det er en uhyre delikat drik i al sin forfinede enkelhed. Men vi har begået en synd. Vi kunne ikke lade være. Vi har nemlig hældt vores Amager-variant af en Saison på et træfad. Vi håber, at de bløde tanniner fra træet og de noble Pinot Noir-druer giver et saftspændt ekstra twist. Vi ved, at vi måske påkalder os Saison-fundamentalisterne vrede med denne gavtyvestreg. Men ærlig talt, så er vi ligeglade.
Vi er ikke stolte over at være syndere, men i det mindste er vi åbne omkring det...

English: Saisons are in. Saisons are hip. It’s as simple as that. So far, no one has come up with a good explanation as to why this very traditional Belgian farmhouse style has suddenly skyrocketed in popularity amongst the in- crowd of the beer geek nation. Except, of course, for the fact it’s simply a very delicate drink in all of its refined simplicity. But we’ve committed a sin. We couldn’t resist. We poured our Amager Saison variety into a barrel. We hope the soft tannins from the wood and the noble Pinot Noir grapes add a juicy extra twist. By doing so, we may bring the wrath of Saison fundamentalists upon ourselves. But frankly, we don’t give a damn!
We’re not proud to be sinners, but at least we’re open about it…

Shared bottle @ Cardinal. Pours a hazy deep golden color with a low head. Expected some more carbonation. Aromas of sugar and caramel, and something funky from the yeast. Flavors are sweet and doesn’t taste like a saison for me. But it’s smooth and interesting.

Thanks Tim and Rachel! Citrusy and yeasty aroma with mild funkiness in the aroma. FlVor is similar is similar with more of a sweet estery flavor. Medium bodied and mild carbonation.

SlackerMads (1243) - DENMARK - APR 13, 2014
Bottle batch 714. Light hazy orange with a large off white head. Pepper, dry grass, dry flowers, wood, light bread crust. Medium body, medium sweet with little bitterness, light acidic and light tannins in the finish. Watery texture, medium carbonation. Ok, but just a touch thin and fizzy.

Atheist_Peace (884) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 10, 2014
Hazy golden pour with a significant amount of white head that leaves a little lace down the glass. A nose full of yeast. Lots of spice and some bright fruit esters. Almost has a gingerbread impression to me. The palate is quite different from the nose. Still lots of spice but the fruit is almost nonexistent and there’s something that’s making me think of vanilla ice cream, but that’s not quite what I’m thinking of. There’s a little weight on the palate with a nice prickly carbonation.

MadRobin (1698) - Silver Spring, USA - APR 9, 2014
On tap 5 oz. pour at Max's in the Fell's Point district, Baltimore, MD. Clear, rusty orange with a small khaki head and minimal lacing. Aroma of Pinot Noir, berries, earthy herbal and spicy notes and a fruity brown sugar sweetness. Taste of brown sugar, cloves, berries, Pinot Noir and herbal notes. Medium body and low carbonization. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bartlebier (1186) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - APR 5, 2014
50cl bb11/2016, courtesy of Enjoyit in the EU local Swap 4.0: mange tak! Pours a pink-inflected peach orange with confident white head. Nose of hibiscus, rum-like abv fumes, paint thinner and older red berries. Pinot noir profile is immediately apparent, superceding the fruity pale malt grain notes. Metallic, not quite US-artificial brett. Wine barrel tannins and Chinook pine provide the astringent finish that the saison yeast usually takes care of. Adding the yeast on 3rd pour definitely adds additional subtle fruit (peach, gooseberry) basket notes to the taste, as well providing some extra texture. Drinkable experiment, not quite the self-proclaimed sinful masterwork.

Cool_Bond (1070) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2014
Smells much yeast and a little cirtus. The flavor is grassy and herbal but easy to drink and good. The aftertaste gets a good hold in the upper part of the mouth for a long time. Perhaps the aftertaste has a hint of caramel as well. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Pours light hazy amber with low, frothy head. Aroma of citrus, herbs, green grapes, light coriander, grass. Taste is initial sour before a lightly sweet, yeasty finish. Body is fairly light with soft carbonation.
