Kavu (2232) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 7, 2013
0,5l bottle from Alko. Pours cloudy golden with a medium head. Aroma is malts, fruits and plenty of hops. Flavor is malts, some fruits and a huge amount of hops. Great!

floydian1 (959) - FNQ, Australia, - JUN 7, 2013
330ml bottle at home. Appears hazy straw yellow in the glass with a large pillowy dense white head. Aroma has earthy yeasts, straw, peppers, tangerines and apricots. Taste is quite sweet and fruity at first before a soft spiciness and dry hop bitterness takes over. Medium bodied with a slick texture and high drinkability. It is sweeter and fruitier than a Saison Dupont.

abemorsten (2767) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2013
Small bottle at Cardinal. Hazy golden body with an inch thick frothy white head. Grassy, flowery gooseberry spicy saison yeast notes on the nose. Meaty, gooseberry hop juice in the mouth; still, more complex due to the yeast. Medium bodied. Nice spicy yeast notes opening up as it heats. Pretty good stuff. Quite soft in the mouth.

ClubGonzo (4022) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2013
Bottle, courtesy of - and shared with - Maltmisjonen; cheers man! :-) Pours a clear pale golden body with a big foamy white head. Nose is sour lime peel, straw, bubble gum, hints of lemon and grapefruit. Taste is tart lime tones, straw, citric peel and some herbal-grassy notes in the finish. Moderate bitterness, medium body and carbonation. Much more on the saison side than its Nøgne Ø counterpart, which leaned more towards the IPA aspect. I think it lacks the freshness I got in the NØ version and also a bit on the taste-dimensional level (very citrusy but very little else is going on) but its still a pretty nice beer.

Sigmund (5116) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 30, 2013
330 ml bottle, will soon be available at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.5%. Hazy golden colour, huge white head. Lovely fruity and mildly peppery aroma of saison yeast and hops. The flavour is medium sweet, distinctly spicy / peppery and hoppy with some fruity notes. High drinkability, very enjoyable.

KnutAlbert (6085) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 22, 2013
Bottle at Schouskjelleren. Splendid saison aroma. Fruity, yet dry. The dryness is perhaps a bit overwhelming, I’d like slightly more fruit and funk. But it’s a fine beer.

reebtogi (4183) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 12, 2013
500ml bottle pours a hazy golden color with a finger and a half of white head that settles to reveal some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and yeast. Taste is a lemony tartness with some citrus bitterness and a light fruity and malty sweetness. Medium bodied with some good carbonation lending to a nice mouth feel. A very well done saison that would make any beer connoisseur proud.

visionthing (2733) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle (shared by Arve_Christian - thanks!) Pours golden with a white head. Hoppy and yeasty aroma with citrus, fruits and hints of spices. Just lightly sweet with a solid bitterness in the finish. Nice one! (2013-03-25)
