Bottle from Alko. Clear golden beer with a white head. Aroma has grainy malts, citrus and juniper. Flavour has grainy malts, juniper, citrus, hops, saison yeast. This was very classy brew but somehow left me a bit cold.

TBone (12476) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Bottle from Alko. Clear orange-golden color, small white head. Aroma has saison yeast, juniper, fruityness. Medium-bodied. Fruity - apple, grapes, hoppy bitterness with typical Saison yeast flavors. Sophisticated, but I like normal tap version of Radonneur more.

Zarkam (376) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 22, 2013
750ml bottle from Alko somewhere last Winter promptly forgotten into my wine fridge, pleasant thing to find indeed. Hazy gold colour with a massive rocky head. Some barnyard and fruit on the nose. Resin, grapefruit, juniper, spice with hints of leather and bread on the tongue, dry taste. Long bitter finish, medium body. Quite a pleasant beer, should have way more barnyard for a proper saison but very good nonetheless and fitted perfectly with the wild duck it was drank with.

Unde (338) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2013
Yellow somewhat hazy looking beer with strong thick head on top. Leaves lacing behind. Scent has citrus fruits and spicy yeast with some sweet fruits to balance the spiciness. At first the yeast pops out with spices and then there is some stingy bitter berries, Iím not sure if its juniper but I like it. Really refreshing beer, excellent choice for summer. I had this on Midsummer eve and this really was an awesome beer to celebrate with. Headed straight to my favorites!

Clear deep gold with pretty frothy thick head. Slightly resinous hop nose. Some grassiness and bitter hops. Nice but not particularly a Saison in my book.

750 ml bottle. BB 24/01/2014. Courtesy of brandman. HHOK XIV.
Hazy yellow golden colour with an average sized frothy white head. Belgian yeast, spices, peach, some other fruits and mild sweetness in the absolutely delicious aroma. The flavour is not that much Saison anymore as itís quite strongly hopped with resiny hops, moderate bitterness, perfume and Belgian yeast. That flavour isnít very clear. Grassy hops and strong tea bitterness in the aftertaste. Tasty.

Beautiful golden orange colour and huge foamy white head. Fruity, yeasty and lemon notes on the nose, a hint of mead too. Quite crispy mouth feel. Sweet and bitter citrus in the aroma. Grassy bitter hops. A hint of yeast also. The body is medium and the bitterness stays long in the after taste. This beer is so good, Iíd recommend you to try it!

Bottle from Alko. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, fruits, hops, earthy notes and grass. Nice crispy body. Dry bitter finish with fruits and hops. Very nice saison.

oh6gdx (20253) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 7, 2013
Bottled (from Alko Prisma, Vaasa). Quite much heazy yellow colour with a small white head. Aroma is citrus, mild farmyardy notes as well as some yeast and juniper. Flavour is citrus, juniper and rather sweet. A bit thin palate and lacks the proper farmyard I like in my Saison. Yet a refreshing beer.
