Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2008
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007. An unclear orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet spicy - among them coriander, but also a lot of others that I can’t put a name to. The flavor is sweet malty and very spicy, leading to a dry spicy finish. A nice saison.

oh6gdx (20252) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2007
Bottled@SBWF2007. Hazy orange colour, small white head. Citrusfruits in nose along with some earth and malts. Also some slight hayish notes. Flavour is the same. Not very much Belgian saisonlike notes...

omhper (19233) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 22, 2007
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Hazy pale orange. Aroma of orange with menthe and yeast. Medium sweet with rounded spritzy mouthfeel. Notes of papery malt and peppery alcohol. Low bitterness. Good flavourwise, but lacks a bit of depth.

Cloudy light amber color. The aroma is lightly spicy and fruity (oranges). Medium body, a bit dry and spicy. Not bad but simple.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2001
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2005 Quenching, full body. Subtle spiciness. Refreshing. At first it was quite bitter but five or six months later this has really ’rounded’ into form.

2004: Not ready yet, but I got some anyway. I’ll ignore the flatness and yeastiness, not bother with numbers and just say that it seems very refined and fruity, only lightly spicy, and definitely sweeter than the 2001 edition. Too bad I won’t be around to try it when it’s ready...or will I? I got a couple bottles in the mail and it’s a totally different animal after nine months. Very dry, yeasty, a little funky...proper saison.

bhensonb (10803) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 10, 2009
Bottle from matt7215. Thanks again. Pours a pale orange gold with a foamy white head. It laces lightly. Aromas of spice and citrus zest. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is yeasty, earthy, lightly malty, and there are hot spice bits. Finish is more orange peel than anything specific, but the hot bits definitely persist. Gets a mite earthier.
