Alengrin (227) - BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2014
’Raw-hopped’ attempt at saison with off-white, sticky, mousse-like, thick and stable head and pale golden blonde colour with somewhat greenish hue, misty. Fruity and spicy aroma with impressions of wheat, apple, bread, lime zest, iron, white grapes, unripe peaches and grassy hops. Taste dryly fruity and sourish, clearly wheaty, green apple, strong carbonation, lightly yeasty, finishing in a mild grassy hoppiness without becoming actually bitter. More of an ’outdoor café beer’ (light, blonde summer ales popular in Belgium but usually not too complex) than a real saison to me - but perhaps this is precisely why the diminutive ’saisonneKE’ is applied...

On tap, 25cL. @Festival_de_Namur. A yellow opaque pale beer with a medium white head. Medium persistence. Aroma of fruits (lemon), herbs. Medium dry bitter. Light body, medium texture, average carbonation, dry bitter finish. Overall, yes, I enjoyed this saison ! Hoppy touch.

I love saison, but this one was not as nice as i expected... Aroma:hay, cereal, herbs, grass, earthy, alcohol, clove, and metal.. Taste is quite ok, slightly sour, bitter, but round, and again metallic taste. I like my saisons full of taste, slightly dirty, as if i’m standing in a field with hay, trees and cows. This didn’t fulfill my expectations...

minutemat (1387) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2014
330ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Light, lemony saison. Not a lot going on taste wise with a fairly thin mouthfeel, but after a heavy tasting session with big boozy Imperial Stouts this did the trick before heading to bed.

Claire, légèrement trouble, rafraîchissante et légère. Dans le style de certaines bières tchèques, en un peu plus fruité.

Swaroga (1272) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2014
Butelka 33cl. OCZY : piwo jest mętne o zółtym, cytrynowym kolorze. Piana jest wielka i biała. NOS : świeże aromaty cytrusów i skórki cytryny, siana, surowe słodkie ciasto. USTA : piwo jest mocno gazowane i kremowe w ustach. Umiarkowanie słodkie nuty słodowe o smaku kruchych ciastek i surowego ciasta. Piwo cierpnie podobnie do skórek cytrusowych. Gorzkość jest średnia i dobrze zbalansowana z resztą. Posmak jest średnio trwały albo inaczej ; jest szybko stonowany ale długo wyczuwalny. ODCZUCIA : jest to bardzo dobry sezon. Jak dla mnie to ma za dużo gazu i się strasznie pieni. Trzeba użyć szerokiego pokala i go trochę wygazować żeby się w gardle nie pienił. Poza tym to kremowe uczucie w ustach i subtelne nuty cytrynowe świetnie orzeźwiają. Jest to jeden z lepszych belgijskich piw w stylu Saison. Mówi gościu co uważa ten styl za ulubiony. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 8/10

Idiosynkrasie (3635) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 20, 2014
330ml bottle. Almost clear golden colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Malty aroma, vague, cautious hints of fruit, hoppy overtones. Taste is dry, spicy yeasty, some hay and grass, hoppy overtones. OK.
