Slightly bitter with a touch of wet hay. Does that sound bad? It’s actually quite refreshing with a touch of complexity.

Lilja (2678) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2016
Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av humle, jäst, citrus, hö, gräs, jord, kryddor med toner av ladugård, vete, korn och äpplen. Torr, lagom sötma, välbalanserad, rena smaker, en lätt och fin saison. Mycket gott!

jc1762 (656) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Tap into a snifter showing well filtered yellow with two fingers of clean white foam. The nose shows deep farmhouse notes with a smokiness that combines to be similar to bacon. The palate is well carbonated but smooth and fluffy with a medium body. Clean bready malt but subtle; there’s very little flavor here. Very mild bitterness on the finish. Overall, a bit thin.

Samuel214 (495) - SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2016
Flaska från SB. Spökligt blekgul, disig med rejält högt och fluffigt skum. Bananig, lätt syrlig och kryddig doft med en del koriander och höiga toner. Relativt lätt kropp. Nära doften i smaken med tillskott av en snäll beska och apelsinskal. En elegant och lätt saison!

Yeast, clove. Some fruit esters but less than you'd expect with strong aroma as bottle is opened. Hop balance is nice. Dry finish. Bitterness increases as it warms which adds a little pepperiness and personality to the beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dahlstrom (266) - 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 (1913) - 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 (1653) - 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 (3926) - 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.
