Eructoblaster (3891) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle - 500ml.Beautiful, cloudy blond body with a thick, lasting white foamy head. Fresh, sharp hoppy aroma with coriander and citrusy hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Its sharp hoppy taste carries coriander, citrusy, yeasty, and some grainy notes. Ends with a long, dry, robust bitter/herbal finish. Wow!

abemorsten (3565) - 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.

hawthorne00 (3542) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 16, 2011
Apparently the Bridge Rd version of Nøgne Ø India Saison. Growler. Cloudy gold with a modest white head. Aroma of grapefruit, white pepper, gooseberry, almonds. Quite light-bodied. Taste has some light dough, some stone and tropical fruit, lots of grapefruit and pepper. Touch of windex. Saison character is there but apart from the pepper it’s pretty subdued and a bit clean for me. Nice dry finish is bitter and spicy.

Straw coloured body, slightly hazy and with a lasting head. Grapefruit and light spice on the aroma. Fruit and spice in the taste, medium body, very refreshing and without noticeable alcohol.

Lukaduke (3038) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Pours a medium golden color with two fingers of white foam. Nice aromas of tangerine, candied orange peel, mango and earthy peppered yeast. Palate follows with a dry rustic saison backbone, nice yeast profile, layers of tropical fruit forward hops, citrus, floral fieldgrass and a lingering bitterness draws out the finish.

Draught from Blind Tiger. Classic saison pour of slightly orange gold, nice floral aroma; yeasty and clean hops bitterness were the primary flavors.

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Pretty unique brew with a 14 karat body sporting a tightly packed ivory cap. Nice citrus and tropical fruit notes, clean and crisp green leafy qualities, and even a slightly sourdough, earthy, cheesy addition. Refreshing and well crafted.

ALLOVATE (2912) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 22, 2016
A little late than never so into a chalice it goes. Looks the goods; Billowing plume of white atop a hazy, sunny gold body. Very fine, very intermittent carbonation rise slowly to atmosphere. Head needs to be chewed off and manages a thick Belgian lace. Nose has a hint of berry bubblegum and pear drops over notes of grapefruit and orange pulp, mango, pine resin and spicy alcohol. From the plump aroma it is actually quite soft on the palate, dry and light. The carbonation prickly to make it bounce with gusto. The finish is bitter, herbaceous and long with a dose of alcohol warmth and spice. Green peppercorn taste on the palate amongst a juicy white wine tang that lingers. It is the brash hops that dominate, though, and are a little on the abrasive side. Overall I’m impressed with the aroma but the fierce hopping prohibits much of that hitting the olfactories on the way through. Not bad considering it is a few months over the due!

Lilja (2839) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2014
Fat på Bishop Savoy Malmö. Smak och doft av humle, malt, citrus, hö, gräs med toner av peppar. Torr, något sträv, lagom sötma, lätt fruktig, fin beska med smak av citrusskal.
