biirusaikou (2201) - - FEB 27, 2016
Draught at Naka-Meguro taproom. Great example of a classic Belgian saison combined with American hops, lovely fruitiness coming from both Belgian esters and amarillo, notes of apple and mandarin with a bready mouthfeel, dry finish. Lovely brew from 2 outstanding artisans.

Pours clear gold into a tulip. Bright white head consumes the glass, tophats and overflows. Lemony yeast and spice aromas. Crisp with sweet caramel and citrus upfront turning dry in the abrupt hay finish.

willisread (1896) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 25, 2016
Tap at Transporter x Nakameguro taproom Taiwan earthquake relief event. Wonderful saison yeast nose with green apple, pear grapefruit and lime standing out. Creamy and smooth mouthfeel with a hint of light graininess present. Medium body with a tad of booze noticeable, but not overwhelming. As it warms more fruit comes out. Somewhat sweet with a hint of dryness and pepper on the finish. Very nice saison.

Rask0lnikov (435) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 17, 2016
Golden yellow colour. Beautiful medium white head. Citruses, fruits, hints of spices, flowers in the aroma. Citrussy at first. Fruity in the middle. Nice cracking on tongue. Refreshing citrussy and floweriy end. Excelently balanced, refreshing, light bodied, hoppy beer. A true masterpiece among saisons.

Beachmaster (358) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 14, 2016
On draught. Pours a pale straw yellow, with a medium white head that lasts. Nose is citrus with a hint of funk. Taste follows, with a lemon body and a short dry finish. Excellent example of a Saison.

alteregoo (674) - POLAND - FEB 10, 2016
Głośny strzał, mały wulkan, kłęby piany... Gdy w końcu udało się opanować sytuację w szkle bujna początkowo piana szybko opadła do zera, ukazując słomkowo cytrynowy, mętny trunek z pływającymi farfoclami. Aromat trawiasto ziołowy, cytrynowy a przy tym chemiczny, apteczny, karbidowy + przypalony ziemniak i gaz ziemny... Bez wątpienia piwo uległo zepsuciu. W smaku jest to samo, choć spod warstwy nieprzyjemnej autolizy wyłania się przyprawowość i chmielowa cytrusowość oraz spora goryczka jak na saisona. Nagazowanie wysokie do średniego.
Trudno jednoznacznie powiedzieć, jak piwo powinno smakować, w tej wersji jest nie do przyjęcia. Szkoda, bo spodziewałem się rewelacyjnego Saisona z fajnym nowofalowym chmieleniem... (warka terminem przydatności do roku 2018)
