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…

Pours a dark ruby brown with an off white head. A mixture of light and medium dark malts on the nose with some nuts and red fruits. Quite the same in the mouth with a bit more fruit and red wine. This is a super interesting twist on a saison, which would be well served by a bit more concentration. Nice to drink.

500 mml bottle tasted on the 27/01/2016. Pours hazy colour with medium off-white head. Fruity and woody aroma. Medium sweet body and fruity flavour. Next one please!

Lowenbrau (2867) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 20, 2016
Keg @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 19-01-2016.
Had it before several times, bottle and tap. Not rated till now.
In short: spicy woody "saison".
Pours hazy amber with frothy off white head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Fruity, apricot, apple, ripe fruit, some wood nose. Medium body, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is fruity, very little tart, some astringency, noticed wood notes. Little saison character, more into barrel aged. Peculiar and saturating.

noelM (167) - Málaga, Andalusia, SPAIN - JAN 3, 2016
Muy buena y sabrosa. Suave pero deja un ligero regusto a alcohol. De color marrón oscuro. Repetiría sin duda.

DwarfeD (2077) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2016
50cl bottle shared with friends. Somewhat hazy amber with a medium white head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Medium bitterness with subtle sweet tones. Malts, caramel, grass, citrus and herbs. Not the best.

Not the best not the worst just kind of middle of the road. Wouldn’t have guessed it was a saison.

Andrus86 (241) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2016
BOTTLE. Batch#714. Pours cloud orange to brown with minimal head that goes away quickly.. Very subtle nose, had to whiff deep to pull out some sticky orange, apple, no idea really??.. Generic wheat start, changing quickly to a sticky toffee with a hint of sourness, wine barrels are evident in the back of the mouth, lots going on.. Sourced Fire Station

Achel (306) - Ioannina, GREECE - NOV 25, 2015
Hazy amber with rich firm head. Minerally yeasty nose with floral hops and vinous notes. Mid sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Doughy malt with well oaked red wine, tangerines and minerals. Resiny finish with marked bitterness. Complex, bold and unorthodox.
