DocLock (7824) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Draft at Blue Dog. Pours hazy dark straw with off-white head. Nose is heavy hops, funky yeast, florals. Tastes hoppy, with yeasty malt, tropical fruit, and a floral finish. Complex and delicious.

reebtogi (4141) - 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.

KnutAlbert (6067) - 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.

abemorsten (2682) - 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.

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - JAN 4, 2014
Pours a golden colour with a huge belgian head. Aroma of coriander, herbs, pine, citrus and passionfruit. Flavour is coriander, pine, candysugar and some citrus. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. Overall, I think the norwegian version is a bit better, but it’s definitly a good beer.

StevieT (570) - AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2014
On tap at Super Whatnot. Quite an interesting beer, slight salty aftertaste with a smooth mouth feel and bitter yeast flavours. I liked it, don’t know if I could drink it all day but a beer well worth a try.

aleigator (197) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 24, 2014
Pale, hazy yellow color, great froth head. Fruity aromas, orange, kiwi, grapes, apple and yeast, also a little funk - great, refreshing and promising. Hops are grassy, very dry, while yeast adds a warm freshness to the beer. Beer turns bitter in the end, as the hops stay on the palate, while yeast is vanishing. Bitterness defines the long aftertaste. Still, as fruity as the beer promised to be, hop turns out to be grassy, a litte pine, goes along with bready malts. Decent complexity, due to the yeast and subtle malt backbone, warm freshness, and earthy bready notes. Mouthfeel is very dry, but pleasant, as the beer is well balanced. As the beer warms up, lime notes become detectable, which fit great into this beer. Hop bitterness kicks in like a razorblade, but gets immediately feathered by the yeast, putting the beer into balance.

Wonderful orange haze. Long lasting white foam. Lovely orange aroma. Very hoppy. Slight bitterness. Great drink in the sun.

berlinoise2go (608) - NORWAY - MAR 2, 2012
Bottle (50cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Huge, white, fluffy head, settles as an uneven layer with some lacing. Slightly hazy, pale golden/amber colour. The aroma clearly reflects both the IPA and saison character - lots of citrussy hops on top of a fruity/estery Belgian yeast base. A bit of almond as well. Medium body, average carbonation. Semisweet, juicy taste upfront, balanced by a solid hop bitterness - then the bitterness takes over, leaving quite an astringent finish. An interesting brew, but I prefer the styles separated.

KyotoLefty (6273) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 9, 2012
Light citrus hop nose. Cloudy gold color. Smooth, pine snd lemon flavor with clean and tasty malts. Not a deep or complex saison character but nice. Very drinkable. Hops work nicely.
