IPAgutten79 (902) - Skui, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2014
Gul/orange med medium skum. Aroma av sitrus, frukt og mild humle. Det er også en distinkt sur lukt, som mild eddik. Smaken er også ganske sur, med en mildt bitter ettersmak. Litt for sur for min smak. Jeg finner sitrusfrukt også. Medium konsistens

gunnar (7676) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat. Pours hazy golden with a huge frothy white head. Aroma is light fruity, apricot and some weak funk and barnyard. Taste is very weak sour, light funk, a very light saison, not offensive in any way, maybe a bit too watery palate as well for me

Sigmund (6506) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 13, 2014
Sample from bottle at Edle Dråper-messen, Stavanger. Pale straw colour, hazy. Lemony aroma and flavour, more sour than any other saison I’ve had. Refreshing? Oh yes. A masterpiece? Hardly ... Worth spending a fair amount of money to buy a 750 ml bottle? It’s up to you, but I doubt I will.

Holmen1 (4701) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2014
Flaske fra polets nyhetsslipp mars-14: fin gylden, uklar farge med flott hvitt skum. Frisk sitronaktig aroma med litt gjær og krydder. Smaken likeså - dette er "a splendid brow-cooling aid", som skapt for fine sommerdager. Så lett og frisk i ettersmaken at påfyll kommer av seg selv. Desverre såpass overpriset (for sine 5%) til at den blir et naturlig valg ut over våren.

bleeng (1654) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - MAR 9, 2014
33cl bottle. Pours murky yellow with no head. Mild lemony nose. Taste is very lemony and tart with not much yeast flavors. Different than any saison I’ve had. Not much farmhouse profile. Decent summer beer but too much tanginess/citrus to drink more than one.

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Batch 9 Pours a murky apricot with a sheet of loose whites. Smells mildly of ,lemon and must, some oak and a little spice a la Upright sours. Flavor is good and mildly sour with plenty if funk, juicy lemon nd grape with some underlying spice. There is also a touch of bitterness. Medium body with a moderate carb. Great beer.

shoulderbroken (3535) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 8, 2014
Tap at CBM Jinbocho. Aroma is creamy and funky. Taste is great and similar, cheesy, good stuff, bit tropical, lots of cheese. Characteristic BFM funkiness. I like it a lot.
