Dahlstrom (294) - Nygatan 29, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2016
750 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy golden with a large white head. Moderate yeasty aroma of spices and fruits, and some funk; bready maltiness and grassy hops. Taste reflects the aroma. Low body, with a dry texture. Fizzy carbonation. Low bitterness.

Zlotta (2083) - Hagen, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2016
0.75 l bottle from ’Rudat’ (thanks Christian!), best before end of 2018. Clear, golden yellow with a massive, rather dense, almost stable, white head. Fruity-grassy, floral and yeasty-spicy aroma of pineapple, clove, grapefruit, fresh grass and a touch of dough. Slightly sweetish, a bit bitter, grassy-fruity, floral and yeasty-spicy taste of grapefruit, lemon peel, pineapple, clove, fresh grass and some biscuits, followed by a short, moderately grassy-bitter, yeasty-spicy and a bit dry finish. Medium body, slightly spritzy and rather effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Good!

Linnet (1671) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2016
Funky, floral and citric, earthy and barnyard, hay. Cloudy golden colour, extremely big dense white head, lacing. Medium bite, tart, rather dry but with a noticable but understated sweetness, grassy and a prominent funky yeast character. Medium body, small lively bubbles, yeasty finish. A very enjoyable brew.

Une bière très agréable et désaltérante. Un petit côté houblonné et pas un trop plein de sucre comme certaines belges. Pour autant, elle ne m’a pas laissé un souvenir impérissable, mais bon je ne suis pas un grand connaisseur du style Saison.

jbruner (3980) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 8, 2016
Pours a hazy golden yellow from the bomber with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of big citrus hop notes, funky Belgian yeast, and a hint of bready malt. Taste is mostly the hops and the yeast, great esters. Bubbly effervescence, medium body, solid saison.

pivnizub (10132) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 23, 2016
Bouteille (7,5dl): Pale golden to golden, hazy, big loose and lacy white head, that slowly collapses; moderate fruity (kind of orangey) and yeasty nose with grains and peaceful hops in the background; moderate dryish, but not really dry, bitter-sweet flavour; medium bodied and smooth; gets drier and more hoppier ( some illusions of the promised " noble" hops are detectable) in the fruity and yeasty finish. A goody...

heavy (2773) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 22, 2016
Jun. ’16. A 0.75 l bottle that poured hazy yellow body with medium sized head. Fine hop aroma, amarillo - flowery, light sweet orange, lightly yeast and a bit peppery. Flavor, on the other hand was a disappointment. Lightly yeasty and lightly paper and herbal bitter, with that light bitterness retaining to the very end of the aftertaste but with nothing really to counterweight it. Not the bitterness itself which was just weak. Vague sweetness might have included some sugar/honey notes, and fruits with spices, but that’s already far into the imagination. Highly carbonated, as these usually get, which emphasized the little bit of body, but basically I’ve ended up with diluted yeast in the mineral water, touched with some aroma that affected it minimally. And my scores here are a big push. Oh, saisons...

Drunk many times, usually from Salt Horse or Cornelius. A fantastic saison that really rewards every time I have it.

Bawelt (540) - Lyon, FRANCE - JUN 24, 2016
Très classique, buvable mais rien de grandiose. Nez ultra levure. Bouche du même acabit, léger houblonnage pour donner un peu plus de caractère. Basta.
