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.

ogniskowicz (179) - POLAND - DEC 15, 2014
Aromat: młode wino, pomarańcze, przyprawy, delikatna nuta szlachetnego alkoholu Wygląd: mętne złoto, piękna piana Smak: pomarańczowa kwaśność, w tle delikatna przyprawowość, delikatne nuty od beczki, finisz delikatnie waniliowy, goryczka bardzo niska, wysycenie dość wysokie, musujące. Pozostawia na podnbiebieniu przyjemny posmak kolendry i skórki pomarańczy. Bardzo ciekawe piwo. Może ciut za bardzo wysycone, leżakowanie w beczce nadało ciekawych posmaków.

Bygers (847) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle 0,5l. Pours clear amber colour with small off-white head. Aroma of yeast and malt. Sweetish, fruity and malty taste, complemented by hoppy bitterness and acetic touches. Hints of yeast in the otherwise sourish aftertaste. Was this one infected? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ABS (551) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle from Vinmonopolet’s BU. Golden to amber with quite a lot of white, frothy head. Banana, ester, fruity and alcohol flavour. Thin to medium body. Warming alcohol. Stingy carbonation. Medium bitter, some sweetness. Doesn’t hide the alcohol well, and a bit to bitter for a saison in my opinion.

Foffern (1291) - Bodø, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2014
Bottle at home. Has a slightly hazy dark amber colour with a big, light beige head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, citrus, apricot and herbs. The flavour has more grass, spices, marzipan and alcohol. Slick mouth feel, and has a balanced bitterness. A nice saison, sweet with a nice bitterness. A little too much alcohol flavour maybe.

mgajdaczewa (603) - Katowice, POLAND - OCT 5, 2014
W aromacie pieprz, przyprawy, lekkie drewno, niezbyt intensywny. W smaku już lepiej, słodowość ciasteczkowa, kremowe odczucie, czerwone owoce, głównie wiśnia z przyprawową goryczką, winogrona, finisz goryczkowo - dziki, alkohol wyczuwalny mimo niewielkiego natężenia. Smaczne.
