anstei (447) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAY 30, 2015
On tap at Hako anniversary. Probably hazy yellow. Distinct saison taste and aroma of vinegar, very pure. No bullshit, just saison very, VERY well done.

Idiosynkrasie (5165) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 28, 2015
750ml bottle. Hazy, bright golden colour with average to huge, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Complex, fruity, floral, yeasty and slightly spicy aroma, notes of bubblegum and sherbet, yellow stone fruit, lemon zest, pollen, a vinous touch, hints of oak, peppery overtones; a bretty touch with "longdrop" notes throughout. Taste is slightly tart, citrusy fruity, spicy, yeasty, white pepper overtones, orange zest, peach peel, bretty bubblegum and piss interludes; cautious oaky and vinous hints in the finish, smooth, soft, though slightly prickling carbonation. Superb balance of a plethora of flavours.

artemb (177) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - MAY 26, 2015
Aroma: barnyard, wet hay, zest, some spicy and grassy notes. Taste: Moderate sourness, moderate to low bitterness. Flavour hase baked apples, hay, sweet malts. Bitter and sour aftertaste. Possible this was not bad, but I didn’t expect so much brett notes from saison. This is not my beer.

dnicolaescu (1379) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 26, 2015
BOTTLE 75 CL from CH-303. Vintage 2014. Hazy golden, off-white creamy head. A peppery classic saison aroma, with lots of bretty barnyard notes. The taste dry and spicy, moderately acid, lactic acidity and a nice hoppy bitter finish too. Very good.

Glowing light orange color. High carbonation leading to a large, long lasting white head. Spots of lacing. Tart, funky, sour aroma. Apricot, hay, apple. Flavor is tart, dry, dusty lemon. Apricot, barnyard funk and a little cheesiness.

Alla spina. Aroma funky, cantina, floreale, fiori di campo, erba appena tagliata, leggero pepato. Al palato di nuovo sensazioni rustiche, con erbe e floreale con nota acida

Ölföreningen 2015. Smak och doft av citrus, gräs, hö, ladugĺrd och kryddor. Syrlig, torr, fruktig, frisk, funkig. Fina välbalanserade smaker som rundas av med en god beska. Riktigt gott!
