3fourths (8110) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle. Lightly hazed orange with a thin white head. Apple juice and cantaloupe melon nose with cardboard oxidation and subtle chemical / hairspray off-notes, joined later by creeping notes of turnip and radish. Medium-light body, sweet with low carbonation, honey-like syrupiness, dead yeast in the finish. Didn’t seem to carbonate well so may have had no chance of holding up.

Ragnampiza (499) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - OCT 13, 2014
330 ml bottle at Il Maltese. Dark golden yellow, pretty hazy, with a tiny off white head. On the nose tons and tons of fruit esters (banana, peach, apricot), slightly citrusy as well, just a hint of the alchool. Pretty sweet upfront with notes of honey and brown sugar, moderetaly bitter (again slightly citrusy) and rather herbal as well. Light astringency in the aftertaste. Very soft carbonation, medium body, slightly oily texture. Completely different from a "typical" Saison. Decent and enjoyable overall, but quite forgettable.

Derbeth (347) - Kraków, POLAND - OCT 3, 2014
Draught. Orange colour, hazy, thick, long lasting head. Aroma is intensive apricot and malt, toast. Medium bitterness. Good until the last sip. Nice one!

Magela (67) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - SEP 30, 2014
Aroma atraente de banana. Cremosa e um tanto refrescante. Final meio amargo e picante.

Another new beer at Liquor Shed. A big foamer, once it settles down, I see a slightly hazy golden brew. The smell has all sorts of things going on. Tropical fruit, banana, almost a barnyard aroma. Can I say sweet and sour? It tastes like it smells. Tropical fruit both sweet and sour, earthy, and now peppery. So different but I like. Medium body and carbonation. As Sargeant Schultz would say, very interesting.

tania_nexust (209) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle from Mother Kelly’s. Light sweetgrain and lemon notes. Lemon and herbaceous flavours with a short finish. A pleasant if unremarkable saison, refreshing but soft rather than sharp or sour.

Baramba (131) - ITALY - SEP 2, 2014

adster (427) - HUNGARY - AUG 31, 2014
Az üvegének formáján kívül igazi különlegesség már az illata is: fűszerezett szilva és cukrozott paradicsomlé, vadvirágok nektárjának aromáját rejti. Kellőképpen fajsúlyosnak tűnő komponensek ahhoz, hogy egy marcona, likőrszerű quadrupel, de leginkább fűszeres tripel, vagy egyéb, magas alkoholszázalékú belga főzet meghatározóiként gondoljunk rájuk... Íze ennek ellenére saison-jellegéből adódóan kellemesen fanyar, szomjoltó jellegű, füves és lágyan gyümölcsös, légiesen könnyed, mégis komplex karakterű. Remek darab, módfelett élvezetes, igazi csemege.

bursprak (674) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours light bronze with a frothy fluffy head. Pour has tons of yeast throughout and not just the last drops. Nose has yeast and cereal. Taste has yeast, herbs with some skunky notes.
