Cimbasso (492) - - OCT 25, 2015
Cloudy pale Amber/gold with almost no head. Aroma of oranges and lemons m. Quite a creamy taste (unexpectedly!) with plenty of banana, honey and clove flavours. A little bit of barnyard in the mix as well. Pleasantly fruity finish. An excellent and complex beer, but more like a Witbier in character than a Saison.

Holmen1 (3936) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2015
Flaske fra Prohibition Wines, delt med Steven hjemme hos ham: lett uklar gylden helt uten skum. Underkarbonert, så noe av friskheten går tapt. Mye aroma og smak av milde appelsiner, noe banan, ingefær og hvete. Honningsødmen er til stede hele veien. Minner mer om en witbier enn en saison.

StueyD (1544) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2015
A mid amber orange coloured beer with a frothy white head. Strong, spicy aroma, peppery and a hint of clove, plus dusty malt and a zesty fruitiness. Dry and fizzy mouthfeel. A zesty, grassy and fruity taste to start, then a warming ginger led spice flavour brings forward a dry biscuity maltiness. The finish is zesty and spicy.

niquillis (2147) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2015
Bottle from Beer Dock, Crewe. Pours like a piddle sample, quickly no head. Seriously lacking any dimension, disappointing. Some banana, light and easy to drink but boring.

Drunk from 33cl bottle bottle bought at Bierhuis in Ossett. Cloyingly oversweet beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AshtonMcCobb (4212) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 5, 2014
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - golden amber and hazy. Some head. Nose - gentle honey and ginger biscuits. Some lemon and yeastiness. Taste - more honey and ginger biscuits. Palate - light to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - not a massive fan of honey or ginger in beer but this is decent. Can’t help thinking the underlying saison might have been better.
