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.

jmgreenuk (5714) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 3, 2015
Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear medium amber with a super frothy white head. The aroma is zesty citrus, dry mineral, some spice. The flavour is aniseed, light acid citrus with a smooth, nicely rounded, vinous, light oak palate with some sweet notes in the finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Takes your regular saison a step further and it works for me. It’s packed with flavour and has none of the harshness you sometimes get in a saison.

Rolfarild (104) - NORWAY - JUL 2, 2015
Dark amber with a quickly dissapearing head, no lacing. Aroma of overiped grapes and sour yeast. A plessant taste of Sweet Riesling, caramell,spice and malt. Quit sourish but also verry sweet aftertaste. To saturating, but a nice twist to saison.

TorbenJensen (179) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2015
Beautiful dark red beer with moderate foam layer. Lovely refreshing aroma of berries (raspberries) and a little caramel. The taste is good and round and tastes a bit of oak. Ripe berries and a little caramel fight for attention and it’s all nice hoppy with long persistent aftertaste. A beer I will definately buy again some day..

KoNrRiI (719) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2015
0.5 bottle. Clear, coppery color with a humungous, creamy, off-white head. Aroma of malts, spices, lemon, cinnamon, coriander, and yeasts. Taste is sweet, marked by the same set of spices as the aroma, lemon, and a delicate hint of red wine. Medium body, creamy texture, and soft carbonation. Finish introduces a refined, buttery flavor as well as a soft touch of wood. Overall a nice beer, definitely deserves a higher average score than the current 3.33.

Lodgewick (32) - Finland, Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2015
Dark orange drink with a thick a bit beigeish white head. Aroma is fresh fruit, redcurrant, lemon and yeast. Taste is mainly yeast and some malts with woodenlike bitter finish. Palate is medium. Good saison with bitter notes but nothing special though.

Color caramelo, cobriza. Buena espuma. Aroma poco marcado, algo lacteo. Ligera de cuerpo, plana de sabor, algo watery. Sabor malteado, un poco de cereza, un poco lacteo y algo ahumada.

flemmingwillum (1098) - Nysted, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2015
Rating #1082, flaske fra Sydhavsdruen

Sød, karamelliseret og maltet aroma. Smagen er slet ikke så træpræget som forventet af en trælagret saison, men derimod dejlig sød, karamelliseret og slik-agtig. Øllen læner sig mere op ad en lysmaltet belgian strong ale, end en saison, umiddelbart. Der er noter af salt, peber, appelsinskal og andre krydderier i smagen. God bitter finish. Tyk og cremet mundfølelse. En ganske udmærket øl!

Sammy (9443) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2015
Brown tinged body. Above average mouthfeel. Private order. Saison, drinkable but different for the style. Not for everybody.

Svesse (6885) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2015
(Bottle) Reddish amber colour with frothy, beige head, leaving traces of lacing. Malty, fruity nose with red fruit, toffee, spicy yeast, hints of red wine and a touch of chocolate. Malty, fruity taste with red fruit, red wine, spicy hints of yeast, dark bread, orange peel and a fairly dry finish with a balanced earthy bitterness. Medium body, mainly dry. Tasty and different saison with an interesting red wine twist. Nice one.
