AlchemikalGab (48) - Borgomanero (Novara), ITALY - MAY 26, 2013
75 cl bottle @ Ristorante Pizzeria "La Rustica", Gattico [NO], Italy. Had it paired with orata (sea bream) with pecorino cheese and saffron. Pours a deep golden to orange colour, with the white foam taking some time to develop, not too thick anyway in the end. Beautiful. Fruity notes from the belgian yeast dominate the aroma, along with a faint floral note from the hops and a delicious rustic or earthy touch that I associated with central Italy, where it is from, and where you can find most of the emmer (which is partly present in the brew) cultivations of the country. Taste is pretty balanced, still more on the sweet side, with a medium body. Carbonation is average, unlike my favourite saisons where it usually a little bit more lively, which helps create an almost oily feeling. While it warms up you can also feel a touch of alcohol, not really pleasant. Finishes relatively dry, leaving a trace of its fruitiness. A fine brew, I wouldn’t put it among my favourites, but quite pleasant with the central-italian style dinner I had it with.

Scopey (9735) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2013
Keg at BrewDog Camden. It pours golden yellow with a thick white head. The nose earth, faint farmyard, hay, underlying sweetness, herbal, spice and bread. The taste is dough, light toast, spice, herbal, light citrus and faint floral notes with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate coronation. Run of the mill saison really. So-so.

DiarmaidBHK (3814) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2013
Bottle from Ashburn Wine Shop. Pours golden with a thin white head that doesnt leave much lacing. A bit skunky at first but I get a bit of pepper on the nose. It’s a typical Saison vibe in the tongue. Finishes clean. Eh!

JStax (3961) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Poured from a 375 ml bottle thanks to lukaduke. Pours a translucent copper with a thin bubbly white head of foam. Aroma is apple sweet with a candy type of nuance going on. Taste is that candy apple cider taste with a doughy aftertaste. Lighter on the palate.

On tap at the sail. Just your standard saison nothing out of the ordinary. Heaps of banana and Belgium yeast. Lots of lemon zest. Ok drinking
