presario (4709) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2012
Big bottle. I thought this was really good. Not jus Saoson funk but stronger malt than usual and a hint of caramel underneath a beer with strong "typical" Sason qualities.

czar (4687) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2012
pours hazy bright golden with a towering foamy white head, excellent retention and lacing. breadied malts, citrus, yet very herbal, spicy, floral, yeasty, light pepper, oranges, light vanilla. hint of sweetness - tad too malty. lively, medium body - oily, very nice short but fairly present citrusy finish - the kind that makes want another sip right away! charlevoix’s lupulus feeling here, hop-wise. just WOW.

solidfunk (4490) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Wonderful. Pours with a big frothy head. Lots of lacing, cloudy blond. Smell has hay-like yeast and a little orange peel. Taste has citrus and bitterness. Soft carbonation. A faint sugary sweetness. Big bottle from Peluso.

reebtogi (4388) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 24, 2012
750ml corked bottle pours a pale golden orange color with a massive white head that leaves some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is light grains and fruits with a bold grassy and herbal notes. Taste is light fruits up front followed by an intense grassy and herbal hop bitterness that ends with a slightly yeasty finish. Light to medium body with intense carbonation leaves a nice feeling on the palate. Well done and tasty brew that is definitely recommended for a tasting.

77ships (4300) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 16, 2013
Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft during Zwanze Day shenanigans. Rating the same version as sebletitje, I assume that this is the correct entry. Clear (sigh) golden with a white head. Smells sweet, sugary, cereal and some light grass. Sweet taste, white bread malt, sweet cornflakes with white sugar, grains, bitter hay and bitter floral and grass finish. Uber-simple, sweet and almost macro-fare styled. Light & fizzy, I didn’t care at all for this one & too much stuff like white sugar cornflakes in here. No idea what happened here, I think that I like saison’s & the ratings are very good here. Maybe a bad keg? Worn by travel? Or I am just not getting it. (Thx! for sharing people!)

dmac (4211) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle thanks to Dany. Poured a clear gold body with a huge fluffy white head. Aroma is slightly peppery with grains, yeast, cloves and some banana. The flavor isn’t quite as good as the aroma with notes yeast, light lemon citrus, toast, grains, bubble gum and white pepper. Body is super delicate, light carbonation and an averge duration on the finish. Solid beer.

Idiosynkrasie (4099) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2014
750ml bottle. Hazy golden colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Typical Saison aroma in mild fulfilment, cautious fruity notes, a very cautious touch of smoke, herbal hoppy overtones. Taste is rather similar; soft palate, soft carbonation, silky mouthfeel. Though very mild and soft a superbly balanced, multifaceted and "ample" Saison.

tiong (4018) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2014
750ml bottle

Pours clear yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma of earthy notes, spices, yeasty notes, ripe fruits and citrus. Taste is ripe fruity, spicy and earthy with some yeastiness and grass. Finish is yeasty, ripe fruity and earthy with some spicy notes. Okay.

bottle, awesome saison, lots of flavors, high complexity and nothing disjointed, all the flavors work very well together, lots of fruity notes and some grassy bitterness
