KnutAlbert (5764) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2012
Keg at CBC. Dark gold. Nice funky saison character. Barnyard. I don’t get any American influence here, though. Very decent saison, let’s hope they go further in this direction, too.

_angst_ (2370) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2012
Sample @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Pours clear golden with a small white head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace. Smell is sweet, malty and spicy with cookie dough, hay, tangerines, white pepper, cloves and crackers. Taste is sweet and malty with bread, orange peal, grass, cloves, hay, allspice, dry soil and hints of caramel. Mouthfeel is crisp, tiny dry and medium bodied. Finish is sweet with bread, orange peal and hay.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2012 Tap at CBC. Clear light amber with a small off white head. Quite malty aroma for a saison - caramel, plus notes of herbs (sage?), faint flowery hops, peppery spices. Taste is sweet caramel, toffee, herbal dry finish. Vapid, flat, too sweet.

Rune (7355) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2012
Was added to the draft menu during my Saturday afternoon at the BrewDog bar in Edinburgh, half pint. Clear and deep dark amber body, headless apart from a circular edge. Perfumed herbal hops to the nose. Comprehensive flavour character with dried and fresh fruits added by caramel malts and spicy hints. Natural, soft carbonated. Fresh and fruity on the swallow, 14.04.2012.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 28, 2012
On keg at BrewDog. Pours a dark golden colour with a thin beige head. Aroma of tangerines, rosemary, basil and ginger. Liight juniper and just a little soap. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lingering rosemary, ginger and soap. Reminds me of Williams Fraoch.

teorn88 (1916) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2012
On tap at Brewdog Camden. Pours a clear golden colour with a medium white head. Quite lasting foam. Aroma is yeasty, with spices, black pepper, citrus and earth. Aroma is similar, with a clearly dominant yeasty backbone. Citrus, earthy flavors. Body is medium with good carbonation. Overall, not really interesting. And where does the "American" in the name come from? No traces of brett in this one.
